Playlist of the Week: Wide Awake to Own Today







One Step Closer

I found the song of Christina Perri called A Thousand Years nostalgic and reminiscing.  At first hearing I just ignored this song because I thought of it as so serious and dramatic. But after watching Breaking Dawn Part 2 last year, I found the song beautifully effective in capturing my attention especially during the closing credits of the film. While playing the song, they specially mentioned and showed old clips of previous actors and actresses who became part of the movie series since the Twilight film. It hit me that the movie series has already ended realizing that it’s been years since I followed watching it via the movie houses in a nearest mall. I was feeling like I am about to let go a film which I never thought I would. I somehow felt attached with the story though I have not really read the books of Stephanie Meyer. I prefer watching the film instead so I will not be disappointed just like others who read them.

My brother who is really gifted with playing music has recently practiced singing this song with his guitar.  Soon I found myself humming the song again.  I really like how it was played with piano as an accompaniment in the recorded song but my appreciation grew even more when it is also being played with a guitar.  Every time I listen to it I feel like being drawn more with the lyrics and its meaning.  I am the type of person who not only likes a song with its melody but also the content of the song.

As I also searched the video lyrics of the song through Youtube, I was not expecting that Christina Perri’s song has a part 2!  It’s good to hear that a song you currently like has another version though the lyrics are just minimal changes compared to the original version still I enjoyed listening to both versions!
