The following is taken from an old post:
*When I heard the song, “Hey there, Delilah“, by Plain White Ts when it first hit the airwaves sometime ago, I liked it instantly. I kept sending smses to Pat & Mag on TraxxFm asking for the song every day, so much so that Pat, at one point, got quite fed up and remarked, “What’s with this cikgu and Hey there, Delilah?”
For one thing, it has a light, pleasant and catchy melody but what appealled to me most were some lines from the lyrics. My daughter had just left for her further studies then in Sungai Petani, Kedah and when I heard them singing about “I’m a thousand miles away…Don’t you worry about the distance. I’m right there if you get lonely. Give this song another listen, close your eyes…I’m by your side…” and later in the song, “A thousand miles seems pretty far but they’ve got planes and trains and cars, I’d walk to you if I had no other way…“, I just could not help it if somehow it pulled at my heart’s strings at that point in time*
Well, if you have never heard this song before, you can click and watch the original video clip below:
But the other day, on my way to my tuition class, I heard a new song on the radio – TraxxFm and fell in love with it instantly. The problem was the deejay did not announce the title nor the singer(s) of the song, so I had to search for the song myself. I only heard the word “twilight” but surprisingly, I found it in no time at all. I shared it on Facebook…and within seconds, somebody liked it and downloaded it from the internet and somebody else reposted it as well.
The song I am talking about is of course, “Vanilla Twilight” by Owl City that is currently very popular for their song, “Fireflies” which does not really appeal to me very much. Just listen to it and let me know what you think…
Gerrie likes it too and posted a link on Facebook as well. Once again, what I like the most about the song are the lyrics – especially when someone you love is far away and you particularly miss that someone dearly…
