Music Mondays: Lost Stars (Adam Levine)

Who has seen Begin Again? When almost all cinemas were filled with Transformers: Age of ExtinctionBegin Again was a breath of fresh air to my office mate who immediately recommended that it’s a must see movie. So the next week, my boyfriend and I went out to see the movie. I didn’t know what it’s about although I can guess from the title. I also didn’t know the actors who were going to be in the movie. So it was a bit of a risk for me. Yeah, I didn’t try to even look it up on the Internet. I just forked over money to the teller and told her I’m going to watch Begin Again.

Anyway, I won’t spoil anyone who hasn’t seen it yet. It’s up to you if you wish to watch it. Just know that I opted to watch this on the big screen instead of Step Up All In, because I thought Begin Again would be worth my money more. Go figure.

And because of the movie, which has a really good soundtrack, and because I’ve already heard one of its tracks on the radio (apparently), here’s this week’s Music Monday: Lost Stars by Adam Levine.

By the way, if you find the trailer of the movie short or whatever, the above lyric video is quite good at capturing the gist of the movie. There may be spoilers but they are subtle enough that you can overlook them without even knowing. 😉 Enjoy!

Music Mondays: Telling the World (Taio Cruz)

Have you ever had that moment when you’re listening to music and just stop doing whatever you’re doing because images just keep flowing in your head?

It’s the same experience I felt the first time I heard Taio Cruz’s Telling the World on the radio. A whole chic flick sequence unfolded in my head while driving. I felt like running towards someone. The melody had a “tug” that was hard to ignore at the time and every time I hear it.

If you’re familiar with chic flick movies where the guy (or the girl) turned down the love of his life thinking that it wouldn’t work (or something happened that they had to separate) but then he realizes that he loves her so much that he couldn’t care less what happens, then you would understand what I’m talking about.

Imagine How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days where Benjamin Barry (Matthew McConaughey) realized that he’d rather be with Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson) despite how they tricked each other, and so he chased down her taxi and to convince her to stay. Or imagine any similar movie where the guy (or the girl) at one point comes to a realization and then runs for the love of his (or her) life.

For this Music Monday, I’m featuring Taio Cruz’s Telling The World. I didn’t know that this was the OST for Rio. I haven’t watched the film, though I just might because of this. I wonder if how I imagined the song would be used the same way in this movie.
