Almost All “If I Stay” Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

I may be too late to talk about the original motion picture soundtrack of a movie based on the book called “If I Stay.” But still, I couldn’t kept my finger off the keyboard to write about it. I’ve seen the trailer for maybe more than 10 times. And now, I am started to read the book only after I finally watch the movie. I’m going to leave the talk about the movie itself in another rambling post of mine. Right now, I’ll talk only about the soundtrack.

I am someone who not easy fall in love with all the song from movies. I rarely bought the CD because I usually like to hear only few songs from the OST. But, I guess this movie got me. I got really bad. I am crazy in love with the soundtrack of this movie. I mean, I literally love all the song. There is no single song that I left behind. I had it all in my playlist and been listening to it every time I had a chance. From the soundtrack, I could listen a wide range of genre of the music. Start from the very classic one until the rock one. Oh, not to forget, some of the music makes me feel like I live in the 70s * although I am not born yet in that era *

Not to mention, there are some songs from the ‘imaginary band’ from the movie who give life to the movie and the characters. Why I called it imaginary? because the band is not exist in reality, it came from the movie. They are Willematte Stone (which in the book called “Shooting Star”). * it kinda remind me of the band from anime BECK. They are imaginary band but their song is so great that many people really hope the band will exist in reality * Jamie Blackley (as the main vocalist of the band) really nailed all the song from the band.

Well, here are the song I could find from youtube. But I really recommend you all to buy the CD for it really worth every penny.

Your Sugar, Yes Please!

Whoaaa, it’s already a New Year. Kind of excited, this will be my first post in 2015. Will started with this beautiful song called “Sugar” from maroon 5.

A confession to make, I have a crush to this song since the first time I listened to it. When the music video out, OH MY GOSH! I fell for it.It made me wondering will I wed in 2015?  * who knows, just keep the faith *

How I wish that it was my wedding day. I mean, with Maroon 5 as the guest, Adam singing in my wedding party, as a SURPRISE. OH. MY. GOSH. With me and my future husband hug and gaze to each other while listen to this song. * I’m going to faint soon * Oh my, it will be absolutely unbelievable and unforgettable day in my entire life * well, I can dream, right * Gosh, I want my wedding party, soon pleaaasee… * praying hard *

I don’t wanna be needing your love. I just wanna be deep in your love… Your sugar. Yes, please… Aaaah, the lyrics, the music, the voice, the music video, how could I ask for more. And the fact that Adam sing it * fangirling tingkat dewa * Dang! Love his voice since his first song out to the world. His voice is just sexy.

SUGAR

I’m hurting, baby, I’m broken down
I need your loving, loving, I need it now
When I’m without you
I’m something weak
You got me begging
Begging, I’m on my knees

I don’t wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it’s killing me when you’re away
Ooh, baby,
‘Cause I really don’t care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

Your sugar
Yes, please
Won’t you come and put it down on me
I’m right here, ’cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your sugar
Yes, please
Won’t you come and put it down on me

My broken pieces
You pick them up
Don’t leave me hanging, hanging
Come give me some
When I’m without ya
I’m so insecure
You are the one thing
The one thing, I’m living for

I don’t wanna be needing your love
I just wanna be deep in your love
And it’s killing me when you’re away
Ooh, baby,
‘Cause I really don’t care where you are
I just wanna be there where you are
And I gotta get one little taste

Your sugar
Yes, please
Won’t you come and put it down on me
I’m right here, ’cause I need
Little love and little sympathy
Yeah you show me good loving
Make it alright
Need a little sweetness in my life
Your Sugar! (Your sugar!)
Yes, please (Yes, please)
Won’t you come and put it down on me

Yeah
I want that red velvet
I want that sugar sweet
Don’t let nobody touch it
Unless that somebody’s me
I gotta be a man
There ain’t no other way
‘Cause girl you’re hotter than southern California Bay

I don’t wanna play no games
I don’t gotta be afraid
Don’t give all that shy shit
No make up on, that’s my

Sugar
Yes, please
Won’t you come and put it down on me (down on me!)
Oh, right here (right here),
‘Cause I need (I need)

Undisclosed Desire by MUSE

I know you’ve suffered
But I don’t want you to hide
It’s cold and loveless
I won’t let you be denied

Those sentences kept replaying on my mind. Somehow, the song soothe me. Rapidly invaded my heart and soul * lebay * I wonder why. Even though I am MUSE fans * been brave to called myself a fan * I don’t remember been stuck in this song before. Not until I youtubeing just to find a glimpse of fanmade video about Minshin * Minho and Shinhye *
I  am the type who listen to the song based on mood and feeling. When I got into a song, I could replaying over and over again. This is no different case.
I’ve known MUSE since forever. The unintended, the resistance, starlight, hysteria, feeling good, super massive black hole are some of my favorites. My brother love them a lot. Back then, kept practicing playing guitar for almost all their song. And I, off course will be the singer * well, I guess he don’t have a choice of who will be sing it * Anyway, just wanna share this song.

Been affected by the lyric

I know you’ve suffered
But I don’t want you to hide
It’s cold and loveless
I won’t let you be denied

Soothing, I’ll make you feel pure
Trust me, you can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

You trick your lovers
That you’re wicked and divine
You may be a sinner
But your innocence is mine

Please me, show me how it’s done
Tease me, you are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Please me, show me how it’s done
Trust me, you are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty’s not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Is Love Better than Ice Cream?

Some said that ice cream is a condensed happiness. Some other said that you can’t buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream which is kinda the same thing. But this beautiful song reminds us that love is better than ice cream.

When we are in love, the love is more sweeter than the ice cream. The excitement and taste of its first time is much more bigger and undescribeable than when we taste ice cream for the first time. And the best part is, we can’t buy love, not like the ice cream which always available in store for us to buy. So, I definitely agree that love is much much much better than ice cream. I would place the ice cream in my second list, because when the love is over, eating ice cream  will relieved some of the pain left of it.

So here is the song, enjoys it while soundlessly singing the song.

The live version from Sarah McLachlan

The cover version with a little bit change in lyrics which I love it too by Walk Off The Earth. For your info, Walk Off The earth is one of the best band who incredibly and amazingly cover many hit song, which sometimes better than the original song itself.

Ice Cream by Sarah McLachlan

Your love is better than ice cream
Better than anything else that I’ve tried
And your love is better than ice cream
Everyone here know how to fightAnd it’s a long way down
It’s a long way down
It’s a long way down to the place
Where we started fromYour love is better than chocolate
Better than anything else that I’ve tried
Oh love is better than chocolate
Everyone here knows how to cry

It’s a long way down
It’s a long way down
It’s a long way down to the place
Where we started from…

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful

This is The song called “Young and Beautiful” by Lana del Rey. It is a soundtrack of one of we so called great movies.

I know this song is already air for some time, but I just can’t forget this song at all. The music somehow reminds me of Leonardo Dicaprio in a saddest way. I mean, why can’t he have a happy ending with her loved one. And the lyric, “will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful?” really breaks my hearts, because damn sure he will still love you till death.

I feel like I am raping my earphone, cos I keeps playing this song repeatedly. How I fall in love with this one piece of art. The music, the song, the lyrics, and off course the voice. Perfect.

So here is the lyrics, let’s sing together and reminiscence the great gatsby. While wishing and praying that there’ll be someone out there who will still love us even when we are no longer young and beautiful and when we have nothing but our aching soul.

Young and Beautiful

I’ve seen the world
Done it all, had my cake now
Diamonds, brilliant, and Bel-Air now
Hot summer nights mid July
When you and I were forever wild
The crazy days, the city lights
The way you’d play with me like a child

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful

I’ve seen the world, lit it up as my stage now
Channeling angels in, the new age now
Hot summer days, rock and roll
The way you’d play for me at your show
And all the ways I got to know
Your pretty face and electric soul

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful

Dear lord when I get to heaven
Please let me bring my man
When he comes tell me that you’ll let me
Father tell me if you can

Oh that grace, oh that body
Oh that face makes me wanna party
He’s my sun, he makes shine like diamonds

Will you still love me when I’m no longer young and beautiful
Will you still love me when I got nothing but my aching soul
I know you will, I know you will
I know that you will
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful
Will you still love me when I’m no longer beautiful
Will you still love me when I’m not young and beautiful

Be Brave by Agnez Mo

be braveeeee……!!!!!” * me, singing, actually more like screaming, failed imitating Agnez Mo *  This is not even the end of the week, but I’m pretty sure this amazing song from Agnez Mo (or known here in Indonesia as Agnes Monica) will be my soundtrack of the week. Ok, more than a week, I think everytime I felt that I need to be brave for some things in life. The motivational and inspiring lyric add with Agnez Voice is PERFECT.

I’m not her fangirl, but I do respect and adore her music. She put 1000% effort into her music. She keeps learning and learning to become better (such as, took a vocal lesson during her childhood, dance practice and so on). And trust me, she is getting much better.

Fist time I recognized her as a great singe was years agooo, when she sang ‘I turn to you” * originally sung by Christina Aguilera * live in some TV Show. And I was like, OMG, She is not bad * well, at that time, I am fangirling Christina Aguilera. And I haven’t heard someone cover her song as good as Agnes did. Consider her very young age at the time * Then, I start keeping my eyes on her. And I haven’t been dissapointed, yet.

Back to the song, be brave. It gave me fuel to be brave. Just read the lyrics below. See how it could shine your life and others around you.

BE BRAVE

Stand
For the silence and the broken ones
For the families who have lost someone
You have a voice
 
Stand
Out from the shadows unveil who you are
Light the candle and don’t fear the dark
No matter how small
When you’ve got the call
 
Be brave
Shine all your light
Where is your fight
 
Be brave
Turn on your light
You got to fight
Ule iye iye ee
Ule iye iye ee
Be brave
Be brave
Yeah….
 
Tonight
We celebrate our love for you
Cause you’ve given us so much of you
For every single sacrifice
You have paid the price
 
And where…
wherever you may go
I know that you can make it so
Don’t give up the fight
Don’t turn out the light
 
Be brave
Shine all your light
Where is your fight
 
Be brave
Turn on your light
You got to fight
Ule iye iye ee
Ule iye iye ee
Be brave
Be brave
You know you”ll be brave
 
We are one
We are love
Let our strength unite us
And not divide us
Let’s stand as one
 
 
Be brave
Shine all your light
Where is your fight
 
Be brave
Turn on your light
You got to fight
Ule iye iye ee
Ule iye iye ee
Be brave
Be brave

And this is Earth Day, Lets’ make everyday as beautiful as this day. Love our environment more than today.

Full Lyrics from azlyrics

“It’s A Beautiful Day”

There’s nothing wrong with me, I’m OK
It’s only because recently been kind of Grey that I feel down
I know what I’m aiming for
Don’t think so much about everything and let the day take over
It ain’t that hard to do

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly

There’s nothing wrong with you, you’re OK
It’s only because things don’t always go your way that you feel down

Hey what you waiting for ?
Don’t think so much about everything and let the day take over
It ain’t that hard to do

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly
It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly

Hey, what you waiting for?
Don’t think so much about everything and let the day take over
It ain’t that hard to do

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly

It’s a beautiful day outside
But you don’t know how to fly
It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day
It’s a beautiful day
