SotD: Fiona Apple - Criminal

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: March 8, 2008

Why did I choose this song? Mainly for the opening lyrics “I’ve been a bad bad girl.” Let’s just say I had a good Friday night. But Criminal is a great song. I never got into Fiona Apple though. I think her music was too advanced for me at the time. I liked her [...]

SotD: Sara Bareilles - Love Song

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: February 20, 2008

I’ve come to love this song. I’ve always been fond of it, but it’s really been stuck in my head lately. She has a great voice. The message in the song is good too. Why should you write anyone a “love song” just cause they asked for it?

Head under water,
And they [...]

CS: Celine Dion - O Holy Night

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: December 20, 2007

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs.

CS: Trans-Siberian Orchestra - Christmas Canon

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: December 6, 2007

Canon in D minor is beautiful on its own. It’s a timeless and the perfect wedding song. This Christmas version has the same effect (as far as being timeless goes).

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
The hope that he brings
The hope that he brings
The hope that he brings
The hope that he brings
This night
We [...]

SotD: Switchfoot - Only Hope

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: December 3, 2007

I first became familiar with Switchfoot after watching A Walk to Remember years ago. Mandy Moore sang “Only Hope” in the movie, and I fell in love with it. Then I heard Switchfoot’s version and fell in love with it. Been a Switchfoot fan ever since.
It’s a deep song and personal in so many ways. Apparently, [...]

CS: Nat King Cole - The Christmas Song

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: December 3, 2007

I love this song. It’s been redone so many times.

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like eskimos
Everybody knows, a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard [...]

John Mayer - St. Patrick’s Day

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: November 18, 2007

Why am I still up?
Thanksgiving is this week. Finally. I love this time of year because I love Christmas. I think it’s because I’m one of those people that’s always full of hope. According to movies and tv, your hopes and dreams come true at Christmas time; so naturally, it should be a wonderful time of [...]

SotD: Switchfoot - Let That Be Enough

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: November 1, 2007

This week has been crazy. So, it only made sense that I post a new song of the day. This song has special meaning to me because I love it. I love Switchfoot. Have for a while. Anyway, I always think about it around the time of my birthday because of the lyrics in the second verse. I even [...]

Christina Aguilera - “Cruz”

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: October 6, 2007

This song is really special to me. It reminds me of a time I went through recently where I broke free and branched out on my own. It was scary but peaceful. I want this song to be played at my funeral when I die. Not that I’m really thinking that far ahead, but it does [...]

SotD: Ingrid Michaelson - “The Way I Am”

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: October 5, 2007

Fall is here. So the weather will get much cooler soon. Yay for that! But it also means time for new clothes. There’s an Old Navy commercial with sweaters in it that I love and plan to purchase one day. What does this have to do with the song of the day? Well, the song [...]
