top 10 remedies in 2010 :))

hella fellas.

wow wow, here we are, reaching the end of 2010. after looking back, i realized that i only made 4 blog posts this year. four, yes FOUR. instead of fourteen or forty. i'm such a good writer, aren't i? *sigh*

and in this post, i'm about to disappoint you all because i'm not gonna write my 'best of the best in 2010' this year. why? well... because my life has gone pretty boring this year. i didn't read any books besides anything related to my FYP or school stuff, i still go to the same restaurants where i went to last year, i haven't found new favorite foods, and i didn't watch any tv series regularly (i haven't even finished the first season of glee, second season of gossip girl, and third season of big bang theory!). yes, to be specific, school stuff has made my life gone pretty pathetic. *another deep sigh*
however, i'm still living my pathetic life happily because i have one great remedy which is always ready everytime i need it. and i always bring it everywhere i go because this is one of a few things which is able to boost my mood instantly (besides good food, of course).

yes, it's music.

i might have told you all a zillion times that i cannot live without music and i change my playlist regularly. i'm a type of person who will listen a newly downloaded song in repeat until i get bored and delete it from my playlist. however, thanks to my itunes, i can know the top 25 most played songs in my computer. i downloaded this itunes during february or march, if i'm not mistaken, so i still can consider the top 25 most played songs in my itunes is my top 25 most played songs this year, can't i? :D don't worry, i know that 25 song titles + its explanations will take a lot of space in this little tiny blog, so i'm going to take only 10 of them :)

here we go.

10. Paramore - Turn it Off

i started listening to this song after i bought my ticket to Paramore's concert and downloaded the whole album of Brand New Eyes. to be honest, i couldn't fall in love instantly to paramore's songs besides the ones which are selected to be their singles. i had to listen to the songs a few times before i decided to 'like' the song. surprisingly, it didn't happen to this song. i fell in love directly even when i first listened to its intro. i couldn't delete this song from my playlist since :D.

9. Enrique Iglesias feat Pitbull - I Like It

this song is veeeery catchy and i can't help myself not to move my bod everytime this song is played. at first i didn't like this song that much, but since all radio stations play it like all the time, i got used to it until the limit that i always move my bod everytime this song is played, hahaha.

8. Timmy Thomas - Dying Inside to Hold You

watch the video above and you will realize how OLD this song is. if you're wondering why this song is on repeat in my playlist, the story is simple. i was pressing the button from one radio station to another one night, and i reached one radio station that was playing those old-times-songs or something like that. i was about to change the station, but directly cancelled it when i heard this song for the first time. yes, i fell in love at the first hearing, and the song is still playing now in my playlist. the story inside this song is more or less like mine, about when you fall in love with someone but you cannot tell it to that person about how they make you feel :)

7. Taylor Swift feat Colbie Caillat - Breathe

this song was my soundtrack when i had my breakup, to be honest. the lyrics might sound cheesy, but this is actually one song that makes me strong and leads me to think that God has an awesome plan for me ahead and now i realize that yes, breaking up with him was one of the best decisions that i have made this year :)

6. Katy Perry - Self Inflicted

i'm not a big fan of katy perry, this song is not released as one of her singles, and radio stations never play this song even once. i knew this song from my sister when i asked her for suggestions for new songs to be played in my playlist. yes, everytime i feel bored with the songs in my playlist, she is the first person that i ask for suggestions since she's more updated than me when it goes to new musics and luckily we have the same taste in music. at first i was thinking like 'what the heck is this song about?', but after i listened to it and read its lyrics many times, i started to think that this is such a great song because it came up with an idea about one psychotic relationship instead of lovey-dovey sh*t like some other love songs. self-inflicted violence may happen to anyone and unfortunately, i rarely heard of anyone talking about this issue while actually this is very important for people to know because it might danger someone's life. katy perry should open everyone's eyes by making this her single, don't you think so? :/

5. Katharine McPhee feat Zachary Levy - Terrified

i fall in love with this song mostly because of its lyrics. the situation that happens to me everytime i fall in love is well-described in this song. i feel happy, but terrified at the same time. i'm afraid that the person i fall in love with won't reciprocate my feelings. i'm afraid that i cannot be a good girlfriend once i'm involved in a relationship. i'm afraid of breakups. however, i still put my hopes everytime i fall in love, and listening to this song makes me feel a little better knowing that i'm not the only one feeling terrified in this world :)

4. Nelly - Just A Dream

i love this song, but i cannot understand the video, at all. for me, it totally ruins the idea of this song. his dream is actually simple, about his life with girl of his dream. however, when he wakes up, everything is totally different and he realizes that it is just a dream. the video makes this idea looks... complicated. WAY more complicated. and why the heck am i talking about the video? well, overall, i love this song and until now i still play it on repeat :D

3. Three 6 Mafia feat Tiesto and Sean Kingston - Feel It

way before Far East Movement gets famous with their G6, i already listened to techno-combined-with-rap song and this is one of my favorites. what i like from this song is that all you need is get hyped while enjoying the rhyme :)

2. Cheryl Cole - Parachute

i first listened to the song on the radio and i was interested with its beat. i don't understand music that much, but it seems like a lot of types of drums were played during the recording and it turns on the 'wowness' factor of this song for me. the video is also unique with the dance and all, simple but amazing :)

and the most played song in 2010 goes to...


1. Miranda Cosgrove - Kissing You

please guys, don't be surprised. i hate it when itunes tells me the truth that the most played song this year is one cheesy lovey-dovey song which tells you that kissing a person will make you feel alive and let you find all the answers and solutions to your problems. however, i have to admit that this song is cheery, quite catchy, and i love having this song in my playlist, seriously. to be honest, for some days, this song was the one that boosted my mood and made my day. yes, it's the truth, i'm telling you :D

sooo... it's 4 days before 2010 ends. in conclusion, i am happy with my life in 2010 with every experience of life that i have gone through, i appreciate them a lot, i feel blessed, and i'm hoping that my family's life and mine will be much much MUCH better in 2011. amien :)

though it might be too early, please let me wish you a HAPPY NEW YEAR! :)

cheerio :)
