I F**cking Love This Song So Much



Made a wrong turn, once or twice.
Dug my way out, blood and fire.
Bad decisions, that's alright.
Welcome to my silly life.
Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood.
Miss 'No way, it's all good', it didn't slow me down.
Mistaken, always second guessing, underestimated.
Look i'm still around.

Pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel.
Like you're less than fuckin' perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel, like you're nothing.
You're fuckin' perfect to me!

You're so mean, when you talk, about yourself you were wrong.
Change the voices, in your head, make them like you instead.
So complicated, look happy, you'll make it!
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game.
It's enough! I've done all I can think of.
Chased down all my demons, i've seen you do the same.

Woah ohh, pretty pretty please, don't you ever ever feel.
Like you're less than fuckin' perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel, like you're nothing.
You're fuckin' perfect to me.

Hector and the Search for Happiness by Fran├žois Lelord

Tuesday, March 22, 2011
If you know me personally, you will know that I love to read. I started reading since I was 5 and the Library has always been a very fun place for me. Over the years though, I don't really spend much time in the Library but the habit of reading continues and right now, I have various collection of books, fiction and non-fiction, self-help book, history, spiritual gospel etc. Often, I will share my opinion on the book that I have read and today, I will discuss a little bit on the above heading.

A few weeks ago, I bought myself a book a cute blue book entitle Hector and the Search for Happiness. It was written by a French psychiatrist.

The Book:
Hector, I would say, a complicated person, who likes to help people, and he works as a psychiatrist. During his work, he come to know that many of his patients, are not really sick but are just not satisfied and unhappy with their lives. As a psychiatrist, he is obligated to find ways to help them and this begins to be rather a question for himself too. When one of his patients tells him he looks like he needs a good holiday, Hector did just that. While travelling, he is going to search for what makes people happy and whether there is some secret in obtaining it. He traveled to few countries, met old and new friends, and maybe love (Hector is an engaged man), experience life at its, I have to say, little happy-down way, but finally came out with 23 tips of Happiness.

My Say:
It's a very simple and easy to understand book. Choices of words are sometimes weird but still understandable. While reading the book, I don't really have trouble in relating myself to it. For me, it's a 'slow' book, not that it's boring but, it's one of those book that you would read before you go to bed. It's more to a help book then a novel; it reminds me of Robin Sharma somehow. But, if it so happen to be made to a movie, it's definitely going to be a box office.

If I were to rate this book, I would give 3.5 from 5.

The Story Behind The Song - What Are Words by Chris Medina

Saturday, March 05, 2011


Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I'll be there
Anytime you whisper my name, you'll see
How every single promise I keep
Cuz what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

What are words
If you really don't mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they're only for good times
Then they don't
When it's love
Yeah, you say them out loud
Those words, They never go away
They live on, even when we're gone

And I know an angel was sent
just for me
And I know I'm meant to be where I am
And I'm gonna be
Standing right beside her tonight
And I'm gonna be by your side
I would never leave when she needs me most

What are words
If you really don't mean them
When you say them
What are words
If they're only for good times
Then they don't
When it's love
Yeah, you say them out loud
Those words, they never go away
They live on, even when we're gone

Anywhere you are, I am near
Anywhere you go, I'll be there
And I'm gonna be here forever more
Every single promise I keep
Cuz what kind of guy would I be
If I was to leave when you need me most

I'm forever keeping my angel close

The Story Behind The Song

The producers of American Idol have become very savvy with releasing music throughout each season in order to capture potential sales as quickly as possible. In season 10, American Idol took that strategy to a new level by releasing a single for a contestant who didn't even make it to the Top 24.

When Losing is a Winning Situation

Chris Medina was anointed an early favorite for American Idol season 10 in the auditions when he sang for the judges in Milwaukee. Not only did Chris Medina sing well enough to get through, but he also won over the judges and the audience with the story of his fiance's accident and slow recovery. However, once Hollywood week began, Chris Medina seemed to get lost in the middle of the pack with some less-than-stellar performances. While many viewers may have been surprised that Chris Medina didn't make it through to the Top 24, even Jennifer Lopez could not argue with not putting him through.

In past seasons, an elimination prior to the Top 12 meant that a contestant was on their own to pursue a recording contract, but season 10 of American Idol saw the introduction of Jimmy Iovine. Not only did Jimmy Iovine help with the contestants personally, he also brought along his own team of writer/producers, including hitmaker Rodney "Darkchild" Jerkins, known for his work with artists like Brandy, Beyonce as well as Britney Spears. Inspired by Chris and his finace's story, he wrote "What Are Words" and recorded it a few days after Chris was eliminated from American Idol.

When Good Isn't Good Enough

At the heart of "What Are Words" are lyrics inspired by things Chris Medina said and did during the audition and Hollywood week portions of the show. When Chris Medina sings "what kind of guy would I be/if I was to leave when you need me most," that lyric came straight from his own mouth when describing his dedication to helping his fiance Juliana ovecome the injuries sustained in her car accident.

My Note

I love this song simply because of it's story, simply because it represents the meaning of true love. He even appeared on Jay Leno's Show. I wish Chris all the best in his singing career and hope that his fiancee, although chances are little but no, it's not impossible, will be better soon.
