Wizards in Winter

I love Trans-siberian Orchestra and go to one of thier concerts every year I can. This is a light show some people put to some of their music. Awesome. Trans-siberian Orchestra is awesome and this house is just really, really fun!

30,000 Lbs. of Bananas



30,000 Lbs. Of Bananas - Harry Chapin



I have always loved this song. We had the record when I was young. If you have never heard it before you really need to listen until the end, it is long, but great. We need songs with a funny story in our life! Harry Chapin is not only an amazing singer but an amazing performer.

Circle of Life

Ice Dance





Danny Elfman wrote the score for Edward Scissorhands. I love the music for this movie. I think it may be the best soundtrack ever. Sometimes when I am at home I put on the movie and just play the commentary by Danny Elfman who, because he is the composer, is quiet when there is good music playing. Needless to say I know a lot about this soundtrack, because I have listened to it with the composers commentary a lot!


Johnny Depp I know everyone hears his name and automatically thinks of Pirates and a myrad of shows come to peoples mind when they hear Tim Burton but no, no, no! This show is truly Tim Burton and Johnny Depp's work of art. Everytime I watch this show I come away from it with somthing new and the music just makes it that much better.


Ice Dance - Danny Elfman

My Immortal





This is probably my favorite song that Evanescence does. It has a haunting sound that captures the expression of the song very well. The video is also well done, very artistic.


My Immortal - Evanescence

My New Philosophy




Your A Good Man Charlie Brown - truely a Brodway masterpiece. This has always been my favorite piece from the show! Lucy explains her dismay at her report card. Yes, I have belted this song at the top of my lungs many times! It is not only fun to watch and listen too, it is also extreemly fun to sing. As a matter of fact, now that it is on my blog, I think I will sing it again!


My New Philosophy - Kirstin Chenoweth

Reasons Why




This is one of my favorite songs ever. For years and years, this song never gets old. I don't know why I just connect with it. Only recently did I find the music video! Fabulous. Nickle Creek never disapoints!


Reasons Why - Nickle Creek

Duel




Tallented women! They are amazing! I love listening to them when I am working out!


Duel - Bond

O' Holy Night

I know, I know, we haven't had Thanksgiving yet. It is WAY to early to be posting and decorating the blog for Christmas! I can't help it, I guess I am just thankful for Christmas and this song. This is my absolute favorite Christmas song. Combine the best Christmas song ever, Michael Crawford, and Trans-Siberian Orchestra and WOW! Everyone probably already knows this but Michael Crawford was the first Phantom of the Opera and he was amazing. In my mind he will always be the one and only true Phantom.

This song is beautiful - Merry (early) Christmas!

Hero






The second Spiderman movie was by far the best! Doc Ock made the show. He was perfect. By far the best villian of the Spiderman movies. While the majority of the other heros and villans sit around whining, he is just bad. It is great!

Ok so the music video is pretty cool up until the fire thing, what is up with that???

Hero (Ordinary) - Train

Mahna Mahna

On a lighter note this is Jackson's new favorite. We stumbled accross this the other day and he loves it. "They are silly!" He says with a giggle. I have to agree, yes they are. I have to admit I have watched it a couple times myself just to give me a smile. So I thought I would at it to my growing collection of songs. It truely is a timeless Muppet Masterpice.

If Everyone Cared


If Everyone Cared Video

I have to admit I am a Nickleback fan! The message is clear. You are alive, I am alive, lets make a difference.

If Everyone Cared - Nickleback

Citizen Soldier





The first time I saw this was in a theater. Wow! Talk about powerful. Surround sound and everything. We are so lucky to have men willing to sacrifice and risk their lives to help us and keep us safe. God bless the troops and their families!



God Bless The USA!


Citizen Soldier - Three Doors Down

Apologize

I really liked this song and the music video accompanying it. Very well done. True art. I love the sound of longing and aching as opposed to anger.

The phone is held so he can speak but can not here. Interesting...

My question I always thought this song was about her trying to get him back and him saying it is too late... but is it the other way around??? Is he just acknowledging that it is too late for him to apologize? What do you think?
