Yeah I'm late I know *sigh* But I went out last night and saw Silent Hill (and it rocked IMO, screw those reviewers who are anti-horror! :P )

Questions from [ profile] thefridayfive

1. If you could pick your own theme song, what would it be?
*points to LJ* "November" - Azure Ray. About as close to home as you can get. There are others though but I always forget them. There's a few Anna Nalick tracks I'd slot into the me category too. Oh oh *edits* just remembered - "Fire Sign" - David Berkeley reminds me of me too. (Why do I pick all the emo ones? LOL)

2. Now be honest...if others had to pick a song that described you, what would they choose?
I honestly don't know. I know boo picked "Behind These Hazel Eyes" - Kelly Clarkson for me once before... Okay asked turtle and she suggested "Walking On Water" - Ryan Cabrera & Switchfoot's "Dare You To Move", adds: "I'll Be There For You" - The Rembrandts (yes she's still shifting thru songs on her ipod LOL), "1985" - Bowling For Soup (cause I'm an 80s freak)

3. What song would be/was the first dance at your wedding?
Not married (or even close to it) and I don't know if it would be the first dance, but I'd want Lifehouse's "Everything" played at my wedding.

4. What song gets stuck in your head most often?
Lately... oh probably "Buttons" - Pussycat Dolls (just slightly obsessed with it). Everything comes and goes.

5. What song would you want played at your funeral?
"I Will Remember You" - Sarah McLachlan, "I'll Be There" - Escape Club and um um "The Funeral" by Staind *shrug* I dunno.

List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they're any good, but they must be songs you're really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your LJ along with your seven songs. Then tag some other people to see what they're listening to.

And for your convenience, I've uploaded them as well (A)

1. "Running" - Evermore
This has some cool lyric. To me it's like the concious line between fantasy and reality, and it kind of hits home with the way my brain works. Oh and need I mention it's a rocking band from New Zealand who I'm forever gonna associate with The OC (cause of their first hit being over-used on the ads) and um yeah they're cool, and the film clip to this was done in different parts all over the world. :)

2. "Black Fingernails, Red Wine" - Eskimo Joe
OMG I can't believe people are only discovering these guys! My brother and I stumbled across them at Tibetan Freedom music festival (which was poorly advertised might I add) and we LOVED the songs, and they had awesome stage presence, and despite the guitar strap snapping Stu stood on one leg and played out the rest of the song. Now THAT is tenacity. And they're so far along in their career now, always changing. They've hooked onto a new-INXS kind of rock thing with this, and it's the highest charting single in Australia they've ever had. Not sure why LOL but it's good people are recognising them now. I haven't actually got the new album, but this song is all over the radio at the moment. Not bad for 3 boys from WA.

3. "Ordinary World" - Duran Duran
Yeah I'm reloving this song, playing it over and over. I've always loved this song. It kind of fills my heart in a weird way. And when I discovered what it was really all about on Duran Duran's latest DVD (Live in Wembley) it made me cry. :( Simon is so good with his lyrics.

4. "Stay With You" - Goo Goo Dolls
Probably my favourite band ever. I didn't know whether I'd like the new album, but turns out I LOVE it, and this song keeps getting stuck in my head. A lot of the songs like this one kind of point out to me the feeling of standing on a united front, yet the Goo's still appeal to that sense of feeling alone.

5. "Born to Lead" - Hoobastank
Ahhh awesome clip :) And the song rocks too, nice rocky number with a military edge. It's a bit of a "Get f**ked!" song LOL

6. "Fire Sign" - David Berkeley
Um if I'm not already depressed listening to this song, it tends to make me. It presses my sad button. It was featured on Without A Trace and, yeah, it's beautiful and tragic and just makes me cry yet I won't stop playing it over and over.

7. "We're Coming Home" - Rogue Traders
Solely blaming Australian Big Brother for this one. They had the band play in the house and then kept playing this song along to the eviction numbers and it so fit and, yeah, considering my BB obsession of late (*cough* Jamie to win! *cough* Such a sweet guy) I thought I should put this one up too.

Oh yeah and I tag whoever hasn't done this yet! :) Now I better get to bed, it's past bedtime :$

decadentdream: (Old feelings die hard)
So I've just got back and sticking with the theme of overly updating the journal today (well, technically yesterday) I've decided to do this tiny little thing that won't be as massive as BSB cause my eyes are glazed and I'm not particularly mental atm *snicker*

To explain: I was not at all reluctant in going to see this man. I've seen him twice before with Matchbox 20 and never once has he let me down. He's an excellent showman, and he again proved that tonight. Rob Thomas is the ONLY person to ever make me cry in a concert, a time where I'm usually at the happiest, and seems to be the one person willing to cater to my 80s music obsession.

Opening with Something To Be, Rob instantly reminded me of why I love to watch him in concert. He has a certain presence as soon as he walks out on stage, one that makes you instantly bond with him and enjoy what he's singing as much as he is. Lively, animated, and downright funny, this man is certainly one to treasure. Every word that leaves his mouth you believe. You can feel the adoration and friendship stretch between him and the crowd, and he makes you more than comfortable to be there "celebrating life" as he put it.

It was when he launched into a rocked up rendition of "If You're Gone" that the crowd first went wild. It was strange to me that out of the many MANY old songs he played (nicely broken up between new songs, and he even threw one pre-Matchbox 20 song in he wrote *cough* 15 years ago *cough* which Russ & I knew was "Dear Joan" from Tabitha's Secret), that this be the one I instantly recognised. Partly because I love the clip, partly because I love the song, partly because I wrongly made it a song to listen to repeatedly when things went sour between me and one of my exes... and following that endeavour went to see the band in concert with him and a few friends and ended up balling my eyes out during it. So evil is this man though, you feel what he's singing, know he means it, and "3am" and "When The Heartache Ends" also had me biting my lip this time around trying to keep from spilling tears. Mind you he also gave a berating about being unhappy cause that's meant to be cool, and to look at the happy moments and realise they're happening and go "fuck, this is a happy moment!" (Jen & Russ also served to tease me at this point cause I was telling him to shutup and stop talking to me, even though I do do that) but he does believe the bad moments remind you of the happy ones. I can't say it works that way in my case.

There was a few covers and mini-covers thrown in (the latter between finishing a song - "You Can Call Me Al" & "Maria Maria" during his encore presentation of "Smooth" to complete the Santana-fest) He opened the encore with "Wonderwall" but it was his rendition of David Bowie's 80s hit "Let's Dance" that had me jumping around like nothing else. Yes I'm an 80s music freak. I practically screamed last concert when he did Simple Minds "Don't You Forget About Me" from the Breakfast Club... and have been obsessed with that song ever since. I proclaimed during the Bowie number that I loved Rob because Rob loved 80s music and loved covering it for us (or catering to me if I can be so selfish).

He loves Sydney. He didn't have to tell us like the many many times he did, he shows us by coming back so frequently. It makes us love him all the more, that someone actually thinks about us guys down here and doesn't go "screw that, it's too far away" like most other artists. I've ranted many times before that they all seem so scared to cross the equator like they're going to blow up or something, but people who come here can tell you how beautiful and wonderful our country is and that THEY managed to survive.

So really there was many terrific points to the concert, and Rob Thomas is such a showman with or without the rest of the Matchbox 20 band - he never fails to impress. He catered to my request of "Push", and we even had an onstage proposal at the onset of the encore. Mind you the "this is my girlfriend, I want you to be my wife" shortness of it all left me feeling slightly sorry for the girl. You know what I think? Screw the trying to make it special using outward circumstances. Yeah, sure it's nice and will make things very memorable, but am I a complete hopeless romantic if I say I want a decent proposal if someone was going to ask me that? I want them to TELL ME what I mean to them. I want them to GIVE me a reason to marry them. And seriously give it a while before you ask. My brother's friend asked a girl he'd been seeing for less than 3 weeks to marry him, and she said yes. How can you base a whole relationship on 3 weeks? How can you expect that to last, to know that they're the one that's meant for you? Okay so maybe I sound like I have commitment problems or am overly demanding... truth is I'm not. But it's so annoying... I just keep expecting everything to be right, to know, to let destiny and fate have their way. I base way too much on hope.

And my review's turned into a rant. Damn. Ok well there wasn't actually much else to say about the concert. Support band The Hamptons were pretty good, I bought their CD which 2 of them signed during the in-between break. Meh that's all.
