Wake me up when September ends.

So this is the last day of September once again. And how Green Day’s ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’ is again, so apt.

But I don’t really want to wake up that soon, because it means dealing with the avalanche of group assignments that’re due next week. Such is life, but I know I can take it on all right.

Hello October, may you be kind to me.

:’)

By far, 1 of the most moving love songs I’ve ever heard from Robbie Williams :’) Even though this song dates back to 1997, it was only before F1 that I knew of this song.. And because I couldn’t get tickets to F1 this year, I had to resort to YouTube to find all the Robbie Williams songs that I knew of and listen to them all.

This one had both of us singing to it continually, especially the chorus. It’s really moving, and even til now I can’t stop thinking about it. If ever Robbie Williams comes back to Singapore again for a concert, I’d definitely get the tickets.

Angels

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate?
Do they know the places where we go
When we’re grey and old?
‘Cause I’ve been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold

So when I’m lying in my bed
Thoughts runnin’ through my head
And I feel that love is dead
I’m lovin’ angels instead

And through it all
She offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call
She won’t forsake me
I’m lovin’ angels instead

When I’m feelin’ weak
And my pain walks down aΒ one way street
I look above and I know I’ll always be blessed with love

And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I’m lovin’ angels instead

And through it all
She offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call
She won’t forsake me
I’m lovin’ angels instead

And through it all
She offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call
She won’t forsake me
I’m lovin’ angels instead

So here’s something about Robbie Williams..

Robbie Williams is now rocking the stage at F1 2014, and I couldn’t get tickets to it ’cause they were really pricey, not to mention that they were snapped up fairly fast too.

Henceforth, for now I’m spamming his songs on YouTube, and I found this old song that I actually remembered listening to when I was much younger (probably my early secondary school days?). It’s what I’d call an unexpected, yet heartwarming find, because it brought back memories for me, at least at that point in time when MTV was legit with proper MVs and not consisting of mainly trashy reality TV in present day.

So here’s Something Beautiful, hope you’d enjoy listening to it as much as I do – it’s now on loop! πŸ™‚

Something Beautiful

You can’t manufacture a miracle
The silence was pitiful that day
A love is getting too cynical
Passion’s just physical these days
You analyze everyone you meet
But get no sign, love ain’t kind
Every night you admit defeat and cry yourself blind

If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

The DJ said on the radio
Life should be stereo, each day
In the past you cast the unsuitable
Instead of some kind of beautiful, you just couldn’t wait
All your friends think you’re satisfied
But they can’t see your soul no, no, no
Forgot the time feeling petrified, when they lived alone

If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

Some kind of beautiful (will come your way)
[x4]

All your friends think you’re satisfied
But they can’t see your soul no no no
Forgot the time feeling petrified
When they lived alone

If you can’t wake up in the morning
Cause your bed lies vacant at night
If you’re lost, hurt, tired or lonely
Can’t control it, try as you might
May you find that love that won’t leave you
May you find it by the end of the day
You won’t be lost, hurt, tired and lonely
Something beautiful will come your way

Cavalia 2014

Jeremy and I went for Cavalia on Saturday evening and wow, the horses were incredibly majestic and graceful! Absolutely loved the whole performance, the performers really have such strong upper body strengths and the way they handled the horses in the show was really heartwarming πŸ™‚

The white horses were absolutely graceful *inserts lovey eye emoji*

There was a point in the show the horses actually galloped and the performers could perform various stunts while on horseback, and it was absolutely amazing how they could do it with such ease πŸ˜€

The horses (stallions and geldings) were all so handsome – there was a miniature horse too! Some of them were rather mischievous – at points where I’m pretty sure they weren’t supposed to be drinking the water on the ground since it was during the performance, some of them actually bent their heads down to drink hahahahahaha.
Loved how they seemed to appear so shy after the performance, and how the performers showed them off proudly to the audience after the show πŸ˜€

My takeaway after the show – this little stuffed horse!

Cavalia is showing at the white theatre tent outside MBS now, until 14th September 2014. If you can afford the tickets, I’d say go catch the show! It’s a breathtaking performance and worth it πŸ™‚
