Vicki (goodreadscomboobooper49) | 1493 comments Okay, but this will give away my age! Lord help me!

I love the Beatles from way back when! When I was only 13 years old, they came to America and it became Beatlemania, and I was definitely part of it! My two favorites were Ringo and George.

I know they don't need an introduction, but here are a couple of my favorites:

"I Want to Hold Your Hand"
I want to hold your hand

Oh yeah, I'll tell you something,
I think you'll understand.
When I'll say that something
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand.

Oh please, say to me
You'll let me be your man
And please, say to me
You'll let me hold your hand.
Now let me hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand.

And when I touch you I feel happy inside.
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide.

Yeah, you've got that something,
I think you'll understand.
When I'll say that something
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand.

And when I touch you I feel happy inside.
It's such a feeling that my love
I can't hide, I can't hide, I can't hide.

Yeh, you've got that something,
I think you'll understand.
When I'll feel that something
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand,
I want to hold your hand

"If I Fell"

If I fell

If I fell in love with you
Would you promise to be true
And help me understand
‘cause I’ve been in love before
And I found that love was more
Than just holding hands

If I give my heart to you
I must be sure
From the very start
That you would love me more than her

If I trust in you oh please
Don’t run and hide
If I love you too oh please
Don’t hurt my pride like her
‘cause I couldn’t stand the pain
And I would be sad if our new love was in vain

So I hope you see that I
Would love to love you
And that she will cry
When she learns we are two

If I fell in love with you

Hey, don't beat me up! I was the first one to jump in there. And it was ONLY copy and paste! Now that I think of it, is it illegal to post the lyrics here? LOL

I haven't seen that. I envy you, you got to be part of that. I saw several Beatles movies. It was crazy. I was only 5 months old when John Lennon died... =( Needless to say, I wasn't even born yet when they came to the Philippines.

Yes I am. I consider myself a hermit(not the religious kind)... hehe. I've always been an old soul. So, while my classmates were listening to the current music. I was listening to the Carpenters, Beatles, Bee Gees, Beach Boys and the like... =D

Okay then! I really like The Beatles' song "Blackbird", it a really great song! My least favorite would have to be Yellow Submarine, sorry if someone likes this song!

Oh! And here's something else I like! It's not exactly a song, but it's cool and funny...just watch it...you will know what I mean!

Angel / YA rules!/ | 957 comments What songs lift your mood? I have several on my playlist. For some reason C'mon Eileen and Walking on Sunshine does that for me.

hey, if it cheers you up it doesn't matter. have you listened to the lyrics of C'mon Eileen? it sounds like a lesbian singing to a girl to take her clothes off. But, i like the beat. =)

Is this from Shania Twain? I like her songs. =)


message 26: by Angel / YA rules!/ (last edited Sep 27, 2012 07:14PM) (new)

Angel / YA rules!/ | 957 comments Sometimes, when I'm in a really bad mood I like songs where the singers tend to shout. I like Prisoners of Society by the Living End. Or songs by Linkin Park and Nirvana. This also helps me when I run out of energy. =) I keep thinking I can come up with a soundtrack for my life. What would be yours?

I love Bigbang! My sister is also a huge fan, she spent lots of money to watch their concert in the Philippines. LOL! I also like 2ne1, I watched their concert in the Philippines last year.

Wow! It'll be nice to go any kpop concert for me, but I don't know if I'm willing to spend big bucks for just a concert. My cousin recently went to a Big Bang concert in California. I know she had lots of fun! And yeah, I like 2ne1 too.

it's really fun! the crowd is wild. I bet the Cali concert was expensive. My sister saved up for the Bigbang concert, her seat is on the front.

I love her too! I wanted to go to a concert this past September, but no one wanted to go with me :(
Have you ever watched any interviews of her... For such a powerful singer she's really soft spoken.

I have watched interviews of Florence. It's amazing how she just had a fantastic performance, and then (What the water gave me) just says 'thank you' at the end, with a really sweet voice. I don't think anyone would go with me too. Everyone around me is crazy about One Direction, Justin Bieber, or just doesn't appreciate her music.


message 44: by Sarah (new)

Sarah NightOwl (SarahNightOwl) I have a prompt, try to find a song that matches your personality! You could do it any way you like, either by genre, the lyrics, the melody, or the feel or mood of a song.

The song Sharada describes me, I think! According to my close friends, and I can't argue because I kind of agree too! Just slightly, I don't know! I can see why they would think that the song describes me.

Here's the link to the song, have a listen!
