SoundMood – Memory Trip

“Song brings of itself a cheerfulness that wakes the heart to joy,” exclaimed Euripides


This is the page that will play and list our favourite tunes!

Songs play very important role in our lives, so much so that when we hear a particular tune, our memory goes overdrive unconsciously remembering something that happened.  That song doesn’t have to be the best song at that time.  It is just that was the melody that was being played again and again or over and over at that given time for that memory..

I remember my brother, Jonathan used to play Queen’s Greatest Hits including Bohemian Rhapsody early in the morning on weekends on full volume when I was still living in the Philippines.  He would gleefully sing  Fat Bottomed Girls to us, Marilou and I,  forcing us to get up.  To these days, when I hear that song, I remember fondly (oh yes!!!) those memories of not having a good lie-ins during the weekends.

There are so many songs that embrace vignettes of my life.  Some songs make me cry, some make me nostalgic for the good old days, some make me laugh, some bring a smile to my face, some force me to unconsciously sway to the sound, some make me sleepy, some bore me to tears, some make me vibrant, some annoy me and some make me fall in love all over again.

Music does bring out every imaginable feeling and reaction under the sun.

As H Purcell said :

“If music be the food of love,
sing on till I am fill’d with joy;
for then my list’ning soul you move
with pleasures that can never cloy,
your eyes, your mien, your tongue declare
that you are music ev’rywhere.”

Here are more quotes about Music, hope they may be of inspiration to you all:

Music is the medicine of an afflicted mind, a sweet sad measure is the balm of a wounded spirit; and joy is heightened by exultant strains.
—Henry Giles.

Sweet music! sacred tongue of God.
—Charles G. Leland.

DSCN0145Music is the fourth great material want of our natures,—first food, then raiment, then shelter, then music.
—Bovee.

When griping grief the heart doth wound,
And doleful dumps the mind oppress,
Then music, with her silver sound,
With speedy help doth lend redress.
—Shakespeare.

Some of the fathers went so far as to esteem the love of music a sign of predestination; as a thing divine, and reserved for the felicities of heaven itself.
—Sir W. Temple.

I think sometimes could I only have music on my own terms; could I live in a great city, and know where I could go whenever I wished the ablution and inundation of musical waves, that were a bath and a medicine.
—Emerson.

Music hath charms to soothe a savage breast,
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak.
—Congreve.

There’s music in the sighing of a reed;
There’s music in the gushing of a rill;
There’s music in all things, if men had ears.
—Byron.

The man that hath no music in himself,
Nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds,
Is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils.
—Shakespeare.

O, pleasant is the welcome kiss
When day’s dull round is o’er;
And sweet the music of the step
That meets us at the door.
—J.R. Drake.

Not the rich viol, trump, cymbal, nor horn,
Guitar, nor cittern, nor the pining flute,
Are half so sweet as tender human words.
—Barry Cornwall.

Is there a heart that music cannot melt?
Alas! how is that rugged heart forlorn.
—Beattie.

Music cleanses the understanding, inspires it, and lifts it into a realm which it would not reach if it were left to itself.
—Henry Ward Beecher.

Music is a discipline, and a mistress of order and good manners; she makes the people milder and gentler, more moral and more reasonable.
—Luther.

Explain it as we may, a martial strain will urge a man into the front rank of battle sooner than an argument, and a fine anthem excite his devotion more certainly than a logical discourse.
—Tuckerman.

Music should strike fire from the heart of man, and bring tears from the eyes of woman.
—Beethoven.

Music is the child of prayer, the companion of religion.
—Chateaubriand.

Had I children, my utmost endeavors would be to make them musicians.
—Horace Walpole.

Next to theology I give to music the highest place and honor. And we see how David and all the saints have wrought their godly thoughts into verse, rhyme, and song.
—Luther.

  1. I love this song. It is called Summertime by Mongo Jerry. It is fun, it hot and it is sexy which what summer should be 🙂

  2. This song is so tuneful despite its obvious domestic violence theme. It seems it is not only physical abuse but mental torture as well that Punch gets from Judy 🙁 A sadist and a masochist.

    “Punch And Judy” Lyrics
    The Cascades

    Everybody laughs to see
    Judy being mean to me
    Everybody here in town
    Knows that I’m just Judy’s clown

    Oh every place we ever go
    Everybody seems to know
    Well, they know we’re just
    A punch and Judy show

    Judy makes a fool of me
    Why can’t she just let me be
    Even though I know the score
    I keep coming back for more

    I wish I knew why she acts this way
    We’re like puppets in a play
    Judy play that being cruel
    While must act the happy fool

    Though I smile it hurts inside
    Even puppets have some pride
    I would leave her if I could
    If my heart were made of wood

    So everyday we’ll give our show
    And it always hurts me so
    Yes, well always be
    A Punch and Judy

    Always be A Punch And Judy Show
    (Punch And Judy Show)
    Punch And Judy Show
    (Punch And Judy Show)

  3. I love this song so much. A less passive version of John Lennon’s Imagine.

    BTW, Ozzy was just on the radio, sort of confirming that Black Sabbath is about to bow out for a final curtain.

  4. I love this song. Apparently it is called Million Roses (or Million Scarlet Roses). It is Russian/Latvian in origin but has been covered by many artists from around the world including the Koreans, who adapted it for the television drama ‘I am Legend’
    This version is actually my favourite.


  5. You say you wander your own land
    But when I think about it
    I don’t see how you can

    You’re aching, you’re breaking
    And I can see the pain in your eyes
    Says everybody’s changing
    And I don’t know why

    So little time
    Try to understand that I’m
    Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
    I try to stay awake and remember my name
    But everybody’s changing and I don’t feel the same

    You’re gone from here
    Soon you will disappear
    Fading into beautiful light
    ‘Cause everybody’s changing
    And I don’t feel right

    So little time
    Try to understand that I’m
    Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
    I try to stay awake and remember my name
    But everybody’s changing and I don’t feel the same

    So little time
    Try to understand that I’m
    Trying to make a move just to stay in the game
    I try to stay awake and remember my name
    But everybody’s changing and I don’t feel the same
    Everybody’s changing and I don’t feel the same

  6. Amongst the instrumentalities of love and peace, surely there can be no sweeter, softer, more effective voice than that of gentle, peace-breathing music.
    —Elihu Burritt.

    We have just finised watching a film called My Sister’s Keeper starring the young and talented Abigail ‘Little Miss Sunshine’ Breslin, also Cameron Diaz and Jason Patrick. It was a pretty intense film. Breslin’s character was suing her parents for Medical independence, having been conceived or engineered to become a harvest field for blood, bone marrow for her sister who was sick from Leukemia. In the end Breslin said enough is enough at the instigation of her sick sister who said she was ready to go. It was very emotional. The sister did die in the end and when the credits run, the song played was We all fall in Love sometimes, originally sang by Elton John, by Jeff Buckley. It was so lovely so I googled it and found out that Jeff Buckley has been dead since late 90s by accident, when he went swimming in Mississippi fully cloth, still in his boots. A passing boat struck him. So sad, very sad.

  7. If I had to remember my childhood in terms of songs, then this tune is in the forefront of my personal childhood musical.

    I remember my father singing this often; most of the time as a serenade to my mother. Apparently this was their theme song.

    I spent my childhood in Marag. It was paradise here on earth, but probably not to the taste of electronic/computer savvy kids nowadays. There was no electricity in Barrio Marag, everything was ran with the help of the Everyready Batteries. Mod con it ain’t!

    I remember days when my father would take my mother into his arms and dance; waltzing round and round the little clearing right under a huge Narra tree where we four children, humming along with the song, were waiting patiently for the fish being grilled to be cooked. LUNCH!!!

    Perfect days!

  8. I love this version of Willie Nelson of the original Coldplay’s The Scientist! Peter and I loved Willie Nelson’s version, sang as the credits for the film “The Judge” rolled in. I can recommend the film, it was so good. I even shed a tear or two while watching.

  9. This song by AHA never fails to get me going. It is just perfect in every way. Harkett Morten was young and gorgeous, so was the model/girl on the video. The video is one of my favourite ever. So amazingly original. And the song…. the beat is just absolutely hypnotic!

  10. It’s all about Love !
    Why is my heart so light
    Why are the stars so bright
    Why is the sky so blue
    Since the hour I met you

    Flowers are smiling bright
    Smiling for our delight
    Smiling so tenderly
    For the world, you and me

    I know why the world is smiling
    Smiling so tenderly
    It hears the same old story
    Through all eternity

    Love, this is my song
    Here is a song, a serenade to you
    The world cannot be wrong
    If in this world there’s you

    I care not what the world may say
    Without your love there is no day
    This song is so special to me. I just realise how REALLY great my mother is. She made me who I am today and I think I am very well turn out. Quite independent of mind and self-confident (does it show? ;)LOL). Anyway this song was sang by my mother so many times that we learned it and we used to be her back-up group. Love it.

    So Love, this is my song
    Here is a song, a serenade to you
    It’s all About Love !
    I care not what the world may say
    Without your love there is no day
    So Love, this is my song
    Here is a song, a serenade to you
    Why is sky so blue
    Why are stars so bright

    1. This song gets straight to my heart.

      I love that part about searching the world over, until my life is through, but I know I’ll never find another you.

      Wow,really cosmic.

      I also love the maxi dress of the the female lead.


  11. PINK LYRICS
    “Just Give Me A Reason”
    (feat. Nate Ruess)

    Right from the start
    You were a thief
    You stole my heart
    And I your willing victim
    I let you see the parts of me
    That weren’t all that pretty
    And with every touch you fixed them

    Now you’ve been talking in your sleep, oh, oh
    Things you never say to me, oh, oh
    Tell me that you’ve had enough
    Of our love, our love

    Just give me a reason
    Just a little bit’s enough
    Just a second we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again
    It’s in the stars
    It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
    We’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again

    I’m sorry I don’t understand
    Where all of this is coming from
    I thought that we were fine
    (Oh, we had everything)
    Your head is running wild again
    My dear we still have everythin’
    And it’s all in your mind
    (Yeah, but this is happenin’)

    You’ve been havin’ real bad dreams, oh, oh
    You used to lie so close to me, oh, oh
    There’s nothing more than empty sheets
    Between our love, our love
    Oh, our love, our love

    Just give me a reason
    Just a little bit’s enough
    Just a second we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again
    I never stopped
    You’re still written in the scars on my heart
    You’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again

    Oh, tear ducts and rust
    I’ll fix it for us
    We’re collecting dust
    But our love’s enough
    You’re holding it in
    You’re pouring a drink
    No nothing is as bad as it seems
    We’ll come clean

    Just give me a reason
    Just a little bit’s enough
    Just a second we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again
    It’s in the stars
    It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
    That we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again

    Just give me a reason
    Just a little bit’s enough
    Just a second we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again
    It’s in the stars
    It’s been written in the scars on our hearts
    That we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again

    Oh, we can learn to love again
    Oh, we can learn to love again
    Oh, oh, that we’re not broken just bent
    And we can learn to love again


  12. Love this song. This was our high school graduation theme tune in 1979. I supposed it is really appropriate as we are leaving the safe haven of high school to enter a more competitive arena of university education, employment of getting married.

  13. This is such a hypnotic video. You can’t help but watch every gyration of Beyonce especially her legs. Can anyone really do such moves?!!! Beyonce is not called Queen Bey for nothing!

    Beyonce rules!

  14. While gardening, I played Matt Dusk’s “Don’t go looking for” in my iPod and it made pulling weeds a doddle.

    “Don’t Go Looking”

    Cry sad tears, then dry your eyes and mend your heart
    Life’s too short to waste sweet time, love is gone now you must start
    Deep blue eyes smile at you across the room
    You say that his brown, and he is not the guy that you once knew

    Don’t go looking for, that heart you loved before
    You cant replace him with the same kind of face
    Don’t dream that sweet old dream. Its not the final scene
    Be open to somebody else, someone new.

    Change brings fear as clouds will always bring the rain,
    But when it finally clears their sun will shine to make it bright again
    Let love in, you might feel it deeper still,
    But if you hide away, I swear you never will

    Don’t go looking for, that heart you loved before
    You cant replace him with the same kind of face
    Don’t dream that sweet old dream. Its not the final scene
    Be open to somebody else, someone new.

    Don’t go looking for, that heart you loved before
    Be open to somebody else, someone new.

  15. This is rather a lovely song by The Passenger called Let Her Go.
    It souds a bit like the artist formerly known as Cat Stevens.

    1. I love this song which was the theme tune for the film, Carrie, the 70’s version.

      I dedicate this song to all my high school friends in PSOHS! Batch 79


  16. “What’s Up”

    Twenty-five years and my life is still
    Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
    For a destination
    And I realized quickly when I knew I should
    That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
    For whatever that means
    And so I cry sometimes
    When I’m lying in bed
    Just to get it all out
    What’s in my head
    And I am feeling a little peculiar
    And so I wake in the morning
    And I step outside
    And I take a deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream at the top of my lungs
    What’s going on?
    And I say, hey hey hey hey
    I said hey, what’s going on?
    ooh, ooh ooh
    and I try, oh my god do I try
    I try all the time, in this institution
    And I pray, oh my god do I pray
    I pray every single day
    For a revolution
    And so I cry sometimes
    When I’m lying in bed
    Just to get it all out
    What’s in my head
    And I am feeling a little peculiar
    And so I wake in the morning
    And I step outside
    And I take a deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream at the top of my lungs
    What’s going on?
    And I say, hey hey hey hey
    I said hey, what’s going on?
    Twenty-five years and my life is still
    Trying to get up that great big hill of hope
    For a destination

  17. It’s Saturday, have a lie down. You deserve it after hard days’ work. Listen to Jane et Serge’s orgasmic duet of Je T’aime,…Moi Non Plus. Enjoy but be responsible. Apparently plenty a baby have been conceived listening to this oh so sexy song. LOL
