  • Lyrics Of The Week – Extreme Ways

    Jason Bourne kicks ass and nothing suits the movies telling his story than this song, Extreme Ways by Moby. Here’s the music video for the song from the first installment of the trilogy, The Bourne Identity.

    Get it from iTunes here.

    Extreme ways are back again
    Extreme places I didn’t know
    I broke everything new again
    Everything that I’d owned
    I threw it out the windows, came along
    Extreme ways I know move apart
    The colors of my sea
    Perfect color me

  • Lyrics Of The Week – Is It Any Wonder

    This one is Is It Any Wonder by Keane, an East Sussex UK, Alternative Rock playing band. I am embedding the video of Keane performing this song at Live Earth Concert. That event was ‘rocking’ by the way.

    Get the song from iTunes here.

    I
    I always thought that I knew
    I’d always have the right to
    Be living in the kingdom of the good and true
    and so on

    but now I think how I was wrong
    And you were laughing along
    And now I look a fool for thinking you were on, my side

    Is it any wonder I’m tired
    Is it any wonder that I feel uptight
    Is it any wonder I don’t know what’s right (more…)

  • I heard I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You by Colin Hay, first in the soundtrack of the movie Garden State, which I consider to be one of the best soundtrack albums ever compiled. All the songs from this soundtrack simply stir your soul. Get the song from iTunes here.

    I drink good coffee every morning
    Comes from a place that’s far away
    And when I’m done I feel like talking
    Without you here there is less to say
    I don’t want you thinking I’m unhappy
    What is closer to the truth
    That if I lived till I was 102
    I just don’t think I’ll ever get over you (more…)

  • Sung by John Mayer, Waiting On The World To Change, is a satire that fills you up with despair, yet is so true; singing about the indifference that only we can correct!

    Get it here from iTunes.

    Me and all my friends
    We’re all misunderstood
    They say we stand for nothing and
    There’s no way we ever could
    Now we see everything is going wrong
    With the world and those who lead it
    We just feel like we don’t have the means
    To rise above and beat it

  • All Time Favorite Songs List

    Hello Everyone

    I love listening to music for all moods, I just make sure it fits my mood for the time.

    My iPod currently houses 8000 songs, and 25 custom playlists. According to iTunes’ stats, my most favorite track has been played 60 times (and increasing). The range of music I listen to, is as diverse as the number of ‘blue screen of death’ errors in Windows!

    But when it really falls to the ‘cream of the crop’ selection, then my no nonsense all time favorite music list is (in no particular order):
