To my incredible, amazing mother.

To all my aunts who have nurtured me and cared for me at different points of my life.

To my late grandmother, who I miss so very much today. I love you Nani.

To all the mothers, and mother-like men and women of the world 🙂

Thank you for everything. This song, by one of my favorite singers, is simple but says everything I want to say. Because she’s more than love.

David Choi, Happy Mother’s Day (More than Love)

(http://www.myspace.com/davidchoimusic)
Love, it’s more than that
it’s a deeper kind of feeling
I can’t really understand
But I do feel it
because she brought me into this life
She’s my mom, she’s my mom

She brings me clean socks in the morning
Wakes me up cause I’m late when I’m snoring
She’s not the best cook you see
But she tries and that makes me happy
Sometimes she gets on my nerves
sometimes I get on her nerves
but at the end of the day, she’s my mom

She’s more than love, She’s more than love
She’s more than love, She’s more than love
That’s how I feel so
Happy Mother’s Day

No one can love you like a mom can
No one gives advice like a mom can
If you’re a girl, she can help you with your make up
If you’re a guy, she can help you with your break up
Moms will love you unconditionally
Right or wrong, next to you she’ll be
If something ever happened to her child
She’d swim through the ocean, and run through the fire
That’s a mom, that’s my mom

She’s more than love, She’s more than love
She’s more than love, She’s more than love
That’s how I feel, so happy
That’s how I feel, so happy
That’s how I feel so
Happy Mother’s Day

Tablo, lead rapper of Epik High. 

Here’s a guy who followed his dreams and made it happen….its inspiring enough, and consider how brave he was to leave Stanford and struggle for years. He never knew if it would work out or not, and all odds were against him, but he kept trying and trying and trying. And he made it! Musicians have the most inspiring stories, don’t you think?
Music always speaks to me, makes me think it’ll all be okay. I have a song for every mood (more than one), and when I’m in that mood that song speaks straight to me, lifts me up or brings me down or makes me happy/angry/insecure/satisfied….no matter what, it gives me support, so I get what Tablo is saying. It gives me support to follow my own dreams, no matter how far they lie, and no matter how much I have to fight to get there. Aja Aja!

On a side note, David Choi is the new kid on the block and his voice/music is amazing. The singer/songwriter was recently signed by Warren Chappell (yup, huge label) and was featured on YouTube, where his music first started going out. Get on the wave, because this guy will get famous soon. I think he’s worked hard too, and he does have some great talent. http://www.myspace.com/davidchoimusic
Feb 19 was the one day for music downloads, and I got them! 🙂

And Corinne Bailey Rae is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Breathtaking voice, and beautiful music. Calms me down and makes me smile. Check out this phenomenal performance by 3 of my favorites: John Legend, John Mayer, and Corinne Bailey Rae at the Grammys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FhJKSseiPXE

****Put Your Records On****
Three little birds, sat on my window.
And they told me I don’t need to worry.
Summer came like cinnamon
So sweet,
Little girls double-dutch on the concrete.
Maybe sometimes, we’ve got it wrong, but it’s alright
The more things seem to change, the more they stay the same
Oh, don’t you hesitate.

*Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.

You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.
Blue as the sky, sunburnt and lonely,
Sipping tea in the bar by the roadside, (just relax, just relax)
Don’t you let those other boys fool you,
Got to love that afro hair do.
Maybe sometimes, we feel afraid, but it’s alright
The more you stay the same, the more they seem to change.
Don’t you think it’s strange?

*Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.


You’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow.
‘Twas more than I could take, pity for pity’s sake
Some nights kept me awake, I thought that I was stronger
When you gonna realise, that you don’t even have to try any longer?
Do what you want to.

*Girl, put your records on, tell me your favourite song
You go ahead, let your hair down
Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams,
Just go ahead, let your hair down.


Oh, you’re gonna find yourself somewhere, somehow

What I’m Listening To: Like a Star, Corinne Bailey Rae
