Nadriamez' Music Preferences

I can still remember those days. When Madonna and Whitney Houston dominated our household music charts. My mom used to buy LPs every month. Dianne Reeves, Madonna's "I’m Breathless" and "Like a Prayer", Thompson Twins, Paula Abdul, and a lot more. Our music library then was very bulky because these LPs were huge. Even the stereo was humongous, capable of making the neighbors irritated by our choice of music, because our neighbor have this taste for Engelbert Humperdinck, playing thru their speakers 24/7. Very annoying.

Anyway, as I grew up, cassette tapes became the "in" thing before CD's became widely distributed in the country and cassette players were getting smaller until it became the now forgotten Sony Walkman Compact Cassette Player, thus music piracy circulated among peers. "Pahiram ng tape mo, soli ko bukas, i-re-record ko overnight".

Why am I typing this post? Well, I'm just happy. My friend in the office downloaded Heart's Greatest Hits for me. Of course, the song 'Alone' is included. It became my favorite for the second time (first time when I first heard it at my aunt's house) when Carrie Underwood sang it on American Idol. So I burned myself a copy and went home very happy.

Alone - by Heart

I hear the ticking of the clock
I'm lying here, the room's pitch dark
I wonder where you are tonight
No answer on the telephone
And the night goes by so very slow
Oh I hope that it won't end though
Alone

Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone

You don't know how long i have wanted
to touch your lips and hold you tight
You don't know how long I have waited
and I was going to tell you tonight
But the secret is still my own
and my love for you is still unknown
Alone

Til now I always got by on my own
I never really cared until I met you
And now it chills me to the bone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
How do I get you alone
Alone
Alone
