Very Late Music Monday *

It's been so quiet here since I had to remove my music box due to the no auto play music rule on Entrecard blogs. I've been pretty down lately. The rainy weather isn't doing much to uplift my spirits, year-end always makes me a tad nostalgic, the Internet slowdown we Malaysians are currently facing also adds to my sluggishness to do anything much but catch up on my sleep. So today, I'm gonna entertain myself and all music fans here with a little something from one of my favourite groups - Goo Goo Dolls. B thinks I have a crush on John Rzeznik. I
admit I find the sensual attraction of his wonderful voice and chin cleft oh so appealing but I think I'm more in love with the way he brings each song directly to me with such conviction and dark lyrics. ;)

Instead of placing my Music Monday pick at MPG, where I usually do, I'm gonna feature my very late MM pick here at Mariuca for the very first time. When I first heard this song, I was enjoying my summer break in Chicago with some girlfriends who had come to visit me in Chester from Connecticut. We were all students and decided to visit another bunch of friends in Milwaukee and Chicago. Ever since then, this number has stayed with me over the years, distance and events that have taken place in my life, never failing to bring me back to that one crazy Chicago night with my ladies.
Thank you for the memories. :)

Oh and just a little Mariuca update on what's been transpiring here at my blog - my TC widget seems to have gone bonkers on me! I'm frustrated but seeing that it's a blogger problem, I have no choice but to wait this one out. For the past few days, my TC widget, has been displaying my older commentators rather than the current ones on the list. To my current commentators (you know who you are) brace yourself for this change and know that I'm hoping the problem will fix itself soon. And to my older commentators like Nessa, Adrian, Nick, Bobby and Janice who have been commenting from day one but never made it to my TC list since I started giving recognition to my Top 10 Mariucans, enjoy your free ride now! :)

2 hours late for the chop...London, Maddie and I are watching a Hanukkah basketball movie on the Disney channel and I've been dropping a few EC. As usual, I don't have headphones with me so I can't listen to the Goo Goo Dolls right now. I'll be back!


Mariuca December 23, 2008 11:40 AM

LadyJava December 23, 2008 11:57 AM

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:01 PM

Oh tell me about the cat food price increase! But for us, we buy the medium size pack, about Rm60 after discount. Litter pun naik harga ish ish! No wonder broke all the time LOL! :)

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:02 PM

I'm done with my drops oredi yay! And can u see the NNang ad box I inserted in between the posts here? Okay tak???

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:02 PM

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:05 PM

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:06 PM

LJ, not only income tak naik but for me, opps pun kurang thanks to my non existing PR! Nasib baik PW is still working well for me. :)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:07 PM

hah.. yeap.. i can see the NN ad though no ad now..it's ok like that :)

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:08 PM

Wah Amy Mastura lagu apa u all suka ni??? B laik Sheila Majid but me not so much, although there are some songs I love from her like the "Daun" song which I can never find online! ;)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:08 PM

Tulah.. slow gila lah.. lucky got payu.. and eh. i'm accepted back into BV tau.. that day buat one opp for them..yihaa!!

and still waiting for PR!!!

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:09 PM

Thanks LJ, I inserted the NN ad again, now waiting for ads to appear he he! How is ur NN doing btw? Okay tak? Mine very slow after my first cheque, then quiet only.

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:10 PM

LJ, I remember u got accepted back to BV, remember u happily emailed me abt the text link ad the day u got accepted? :)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:11 PM

oh both me and B love Amy Mastura.. all her songs.. haha.. i can't remember any of the title now.. can you belive..lol.. but semua lah I suka.. esp yg lagu..

Siapalah aku ini
yg ingin memetik cinta mu
siapalah seadanya diri ku disisi mu

Kau punya segala nya
Sedang aku insan hina
diriku penuh dgn kisah duka
antara kita curang nya berbeza..

apa title lagu tu...lol??

Sheila? Ok jer! my ex suka gilas!

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:14 PM

NN very slow.. i tak tengok pun.. just put it there only..heeh..

No text-link ad but post offer for my money blog.. so alhamdullilah.. :)

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:14 PM

B's fave la Sheila M, though he doesn't wanna admit it when I tease him abt it LOL! Ohhhhhh I dunno this song la LJ, actually I dunno any of Amy Mastura's songs!! LJ, did u mean u and A instead of u and B? Ha ha ha!! :)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:15 PM

Daun? Eh tak pernah dengar lah.. i ni very poor with title.. dengar lagu maybe tau.. i love her song gemilang..

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:15 PM

Good for u, I really like BV. but they've been pretty quiet too lately, so must wait for PR first before active once more there I guess. :)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:17 PM

haha.. did i type that?? lol!!! too many screen open and too many typing already.. lol!

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:18 PM

I love Amy.. her voice is so unique.. perhaps next time I feature her on MM :)

hehe.. cute nya B..lol! tak admit eh.. lol!!

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:18 PM

LJ, the title is not Daun, something else, but I refer to it as Daun cause the first word is Daun he he! and I don think u know this song, very old and she sang it in a medley masa kat concert, not famous oso that song but it's my fave la! Such a sad song! :)

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:19 PM

Yeah see u put u and B up there? LOL! I think u should feature Amy cause I want to see what is the song yg u suka sangat tu? He he! :)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:21 PM

hahah.. yelah..lol!!..ok set.. next MM if i can find it on utube lah...

Daun eh.. nanti i tanya A.. maybe dia tau...

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:26 PM

Wah kalau A tahu, I'll be so impressed...it goes something like 'Daun..... then something ...then sudah punya kekasih baru..." something like dat la! I laik the very!! :):):)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:29 PM

hahhahah... kelakar lah you.. i ketawa besau ni..lol

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:31 PM

He he betul LJ! I remember this song cause I heard it masa mula-mula dating dgn B zaman dulu and fell in love with it, but until today never got to hear the full song! ;)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:33 PM

Wah you sure it's her song? Ke she just sang it like a medley kinda thing?

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:34 PM

I'm very sure it's her song one!!! And it's from her album zaman dulu, before she got famous! Wah sedih la that song, faster la ask A to find the song he he!! :):):)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:37 PM

hahahh.. nanti i tanya dia.. he's out. now ada job.. wah kalau dapat.. best eh..i pun nak tau gak...

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:38 PM

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:40 PM

lol....funny lah you.. ingat lagi ke lyrics yg lain or only that you remember...lol!!

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:42 PM

Only the one yg I remember tu ha ha ha!! Daun Daun...something something...kau sudah punya kekasih baru.... he he he he!!! Eh I just asked B and he said maybe it's another person's song la wei!!! But still, the lyrics something like dat la and Sheila sang it so nicely until today I cannot forget huhuhuh!! ;)

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:44 PM

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:46 PM

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:48 PM

Mariuca December 23, 2008 12:50 PM

LadyJava December 23, 2008 12:51 PM

Mariuca December 23, 2008 1:23 PM

Tak sedar diri betul! Suitable la tu dgn the bimbo Donna! Resign la, she doesn do any work oso at Forrester!

LadyJava December 23, 2008 1:26 PM

Tulah. wah can you imagine the influence Owen will have now on Eric... after all he proved himself konon lah kan..

Mariuca December 23, 2008 1:28 PM

Dats why, prove himself mah ass la! And in a way, Donna did betray E what...cause she allowed O to touch touch her, tak nak konon! :(

LadyJava December 23, 2008 1:29 PM

She did.. kissing and gomoiz on the bed is already curang right.. no need to do the act pun dah bad enuff...

Mariuca December 23, 2008 1:30 PM

Tu yg I tak paham si Eric ni!!!! He is senile oredi la, that's the only explanasi! :(
