The Constantly Dramatic One have been tagged. By Tinesha HotChix. Coz she is just that hot. (I will be killed after this. I know that. But I can't help it, I'm sorrrry Tinesh =p )
Okay, I need to name five CD of my choice if I were to find myself deserted on an island.
Okay, lets take a moment and reflect on that sentence again. Five CDs of my choice, if I were to find myself deserted on an island. What the hell is the logic in that? Where am I suppose to be playing that CD in? "Oh excuse me, let me just insert this CD right here in this fallen coconut. Coz you know, coconuts these days can play CDs just swell."
I mean really. C'mon. It makes no sense.
And question is, if I were to find myself deserted on an island, why would I want to have CDs with me? I want a fucking satellite phone. That's what I want. Or even better, Clive Owen. And you know when you get washed up from the sea....your clothes get torn...and wet and uhhh, well I don't need music for what I wanna do with Clive...... or clothes come to think about it.....
Anyways, this is my list. For those of you who are hardcore into rock music, indie music or any other kind of music that considers to be deep and world changing, I apologize. My list will hurt you; emotionally, mentally and finally physically coz you will feel sick to your stomach. You have been warned.
This is the debut album of the band Cobra Starship. Now apparently they are the shit in the underground scene in the States but have yet to make waves here in Malaysia. Their music is consider to be "pop-punk". The CD itself is eclectic and they cover all kind of topics from child isolation (The Kids are All FUCKED UP) to plane crashes (Bring It) and to living your life (Keep it Simple). The lyrics are either straight up rude or tongue-in-cheek clever. But seriously if you ever heard of their 'Church of Hot Addiction' with lyrics like this:
"Just let me ask you:
Hey, have you heard of my religion?
It's called the Church of Hot Addiction
And we believe that God has lust for everything"
You'll be addicted too. And that's why its my fifth pick.
I love Unwritten, first of all this album doesn't really have a genre. She has all kind of music in it. You'll be listening to pop then suddenly to rock then hip hop. Its all over the place but even if the music differs but the lyrics is strangely honest. Unwritten is the type of album that a girl would want to listen to when somebody happens to led her into doubting herself. Songs like 'Single', 'Unwritten', 'I Bruise Easily' and 'Silent Movie' is just too damn profound, its amazing:
"We're in a picture black and white
Who took the light out of my life
When you, gave in
We're playing out of different roles
We should be wanting the same goals
Really, when there's no one else for you, Natasha will always be there. Well her music anyways.
Seriously, this whole musical, the movie, the play, the CD- is groovy baby. Grooooovy. Its a great album. And the thing I love bout musicals is that well they're songs and dance and they tell a story too and HAIRSPRAY have the most kickass story. Fat girl gets her dream job and dream man by just being herself. I already get the fat and being myself part down, now I just need the dream job and dream man. Plus the CD is jam packed with all these tunes that you just wanna get up and shake your ass to. Fucking awesome man. And never forget Queen Latifah's 'Big, Blond, and Beautiful':
The Constantly Dramatic One ain't no blond but I am big and beautiful. Indeed.
I'll say this once: I don't usually make it a habit to think of me as anything other then the Constantly Dramatic One but if I could exchange life with anyone else for a day, it'll be Kelly. Saying that, in a way Kelly screwed herself over when she came out with BREAKAWAY because this album is too damn good that I sincerely believe that it'll be pretty much impossible to top this. I am quite right because her third album 'My December' does not come close at all to being the masterpiece that BREAKAWAY was. This album is categorized under "pop-rock", I categorize it as kickass. This is the ultimate break-up album. Full of quietly angry lyrics and songs about how to mend what's broken. And every time 'Addicted' comes on, I cry because:
"It's like you're a leech
Sucking the life from me
It's like I can't breathe
Without you inside of me
And I know I let you have all the power
And I realize I'm never gonna quit you over time"
Been there. Done that. Never again.
Oh c'mon! How could you not see this coming? I am the ultimate Spice Girls fan. The fangirl in me died when I couldn't go for their reunion tour. Its been exactly 10 years since 98, since their meteoric rise to fame. It's been 10 years since I run around the place demanding people to call me 'Scary' instead of my name. It's also been 10 years and I still listen to their CD. I know the lyrics to all their song and bitch, I can dance the routine to 6 of them. All those years practicing in in front of the TV have not been futile.
So that's why the Spice Girls debut album is my top pick. Yes their music is shallow and cheesy but they're memories. Of back in the day when life was less complicated, when dreams seems like they are always within grasps, when I was young-er and of course the symbolic representation of a part of my life, an easier part, that I'll never get back.
I'm tagging: Elisabeth, Gypsy and King Bitch.
