Music Monday - I Wonder If I Take You Home


It's a song that I picked out of the blue and surely a far cry from what we usually choose for Music Monday. LisaLisa and the Cult Jam was a favorite during the 80's, and this song "I Wonder If I Take You Home" was often played on the airwaves. Personally, I just hear these on the radio when I ride on the Downtown loop jeepney after school hours :) I don't remember having those boom boxes then, oh yeah, sometimes I borrow from a relative. And, yes, I remember someone pawned his humongous stereo component with huge speakers to our family hence I got to enjoy the loud music!

 ... Anyways, this song reminds me of an 80's mixtape my cousins and I share. It was what I called 'gold tape' because of it's yellow metallic cover. This mixtape was possibly dubbed in the US and taken back home to the Philippines by my balikbayan cousins. Am still looking for the tracks there as I remember .. was it Stacey Q's- Two of Hearts? Point Of No Return? Tell It To My Heart? The Jets' Crush On You? I think there was also something about Adam and Eve yet I forgot the lyrics. To 40-somethings, help me jog my memory :))

Music Monday - Margarita


Beginning a great Monday! Song from the Salsa movie soundtrack of 1988 is my entry for this week. It's a movie starred in by Robby Rosa of Menudo fame, that's the reason why I watched it back then. I love this classic upbeat song, I hope you enjoy as well! Happy MM!

Margarita

The sun in her hair
The tropical hymn
The smell of the sea
With her next to me
 She's got the touch that I ache for so much
My muchachita
It's more than her eyes
More than her voice More than her smile
That leaves you no choice
Straight from the pain yes of love
She was born Margarita
And if I could get back to that dream I know she'll be there
Waiting for me Margarita
 In my dreams we are together
And our love goes on forever
When I awake, I'm not there
Mi Margarita
I will search until I'll find you
And the roses will remind you
And I will wake inside the dream

Me fui, viajé
Y años después
Tú con tu flor
No era ilusión
Entre la gente al buscarte un fusil me apuntaba
Te vi alejar
Y caminé
Cuanto soñar
Tanto cambié
Es increíble que estés frente a mí
Muchachita
De repente su mano sentí
A su casa yo entré
Y allí entendí
Margarita
Que tú siempre has sido mía
Eras tú mi compañía
Desde otra vida lo sé
Mi Margarita
Hoy que estás en agonía
Sé que es nuestra muchachita
La que nos une otra vez
Puso en sus manos la flor
Sus ojos cerró
My Margarita
En el cuarto surgió confusión
Todo el mundo lloró
Y fue feliz
Mi muchachita
Sé que sientes alegría
Ananana sé que anhelas
Que conmigo siempre estes

Bye Entrecard?

I've noticed that these past 2 weeks Entrecard has been in a long pause. I was getting antsy to begin dropping again but their website was down. Now I just heard that Entrecard would finally close :( Sad for me as it has benefited me much when it comes to traffic and seo. But most of all, I thank Entrecard for helping me meet other bloggers too. So long, Entrecard! Where to now, my friends? Hoping for alternatives...

Music Monday - Tayo'y Mag-Rock n Roll By Paola Luz





I'll be featuring two upbeat songs I used to play on our old German turntable, which was the only "stereo" I had back then in 1989. Because of that, I've been a collector of 45 rpm records since I learned to save up. Alas, because I've had a short attention span, I lost all of those 45 rpm records :( Thanks to Youtube for the availability!

 This song reminds me so much of those evenings I would play one record after the other. I always played them as the mood inspires me, yet I always play "Wild, Wild West" by the Escape Club, then Laura Branigan's "Power Of Love", then Paola Luz' "Tayo'y Mag-Rock N Roll" :)) My memories come back to me better when it's being from my heart ;-)

Blogthings :What Color Is Your Name?

Nothing so special to do today hence I thought of just trying a blogquiz / online test. When the result came up, I just exclaimed "Whatever!" :-D  It's just for fun and not really an accurate description of ourselves. Look here, I'm no longer THAT energetic, so I don't know what this blogquiz is telling me. I love the color orange, and that makes me feel better!

Friends and fellow bloggers, try it too and post your results as a comment! (SEO hint*hint)




Your Name is Orange
Your name tells people that your are flamboyant and vibrant. The amount of energy that you have is simply amazing.

You are enthusiastic about everything that comes your way. You love having new experiences and trying new things.

People see you as bold and even a little wild. You can be an overwhelming force.
You tend to get noticed a lot, and to be honest, you feel a bit sad when people aren't paying attention to you.

My Outrageous Electricity Bill



Haaarrrgghh! Here I'm again venting on my outrageous electric bill - thanks but no thanks to our local electric company. Friends, neighbors and relatives echo their sentiments on their similarly strange electric bill this month with this same company.  It dampened a few people's spirits for awhile, even led them to think their electric bill began their woes of the week - beginning that Monday when they received their bill.

Oh well, on a personal standpoint, I have had a love-hate relationship with our electric utility company
for years ever since I had a family and took up the responsibility of paying the electric utility bill.I have plenty of stories to tell about that, if I paid attention to my bad feelings - maybe beginning with dishonest collectors,
overcharging disconnection linemen and faulty electric readings.  For a moment I need to gasp for air as I write, as this is not the issue this week.

Plenty of us in our town are wondering what is with  the high jump of our electric utility charge. One sari-sari store owner used to switch on 2 refrigerators, yet only used one this month. But to her shock, their electricity bill went from 3500 to 5500 this month!  On the other hand, our electric bill is an average 1200-1500 yet jumped to 2800 this month!!! yes, that's three exclamation points from me!

 Well here first, there are just 7 of us in the house. During the daytime no one is ever at home so there is practically no use of electricity. To think that in the evenings, our family tried as best as we can to turn off everything that is not in use or is of no value. We even spent less time watching tv and chose to read books instead. Mind you my readers, as of this writing at 6:00PM, our lights are turned off and all the light we get are from this computer monitor and a faint light from the street outside. huhuhu! So now here I think we've been overcharged despite the news that other electric companies from other towns have rolled back their rates. Hmm, this is unfair.

Wish I could avail soon of this Free Electricity From Utility Companies with a reduction of 1000 pesos or more. Yes I heard this is a legal move especially during this media-so-called "Economic Hard Times"

In the meantime I am contemplating some CIA tricks to use just to reduce our monthly electric bill....

Music Monday - Meet Me Halfway

To be in love with love itself once made me truly happy in my heart, in my mind and I think it affected everything around me so much that all things went well.This was during the 80's - as you can guess by now I'm a huge fan - I love this song because it reminds me of a classmate in high school and all the memories that go with it of all our classmates. I can't say anything more, but it's kind of related to a popular post here about the high school I went to. Turns out this time I have a good friend after all. Smile! Life goes on...

P.S. This entry I posted because of August 27. It's a memory game for me if I can remember each important date in my friends' lives :)
