arms wide open

i can’t post it the way i want it to in my LJ (i have no idea why).

but i don’t wanna waste it

so i decided that i’ll answer this question :

If you could only listen to one music genre for the rest of your life (classical, rock, jazz, etc.), what would you choose, and why?

here.

a n s w e r :

i couldn’t listen to only one music genre for the rest of my life.

that would be truly unimaginable.

but if i have to choose, it would probably be pop rock with strings at the back.

there has to be that distinctive sound of strings at the background because they blend in superbly with the pop rock beat and gives this wholesome feeling to the music.

like when you listen to Creed’s “Arms Wide Open”, the way the strings are arranged towards the last chorus allows the music to build up so strongly and adds to the massive quality of the song.

as if you’re anticipating something from it and then it is delivered.

as if the feeling of feeling something.

almost like the feeling of

..accomplishment.

check this out here. it is present throughout the song but somewhat more evident near the guitar solo until the end.

(don’t just look. listen).

Well I just heard the news today
It seems my life is gonna change
I closed my eyes, began to pray
Then tears of joy streamed down my face

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open

Well I don’t know if I’m ready
To be the man I have to be
I’ll take a breath, Ill take her by my side
We stand in awe, we’ve created life

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I’ll show you everything
WIth arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I’ll show you love
I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I’ll show you everything
Oh yeah
With arms wide open, wide open

If I had just one wish
Only one demand
I hope he’s not like me
I hope he understands
That he can take this life
And hold it by the hand
That he can greet the world
With arms wide open

With arms wide open
Under the sunlight
Welcome to this place
I’ll show you everything
WIth arms wide open
Now everything has changed
I’ll show you love
I’ll show you everything
With arms wide open
With arms wide open
I’ll show you everything
Oh yeah

With arms wide open, wide open

 

(owh, and excuse the spanish subs..it’s the only vid that i can find that has better sound. but even that isn’t really quite as clear. so why not go here for the download).

okay.

so with that i end my music story.

and last but not least;

to Creed for such an amazing song. (love the accent!)

(and ermm. i don’t really like the american idol contestant’s version.. sorry. the song has to have tonnes of energy and feelings to it to move the emotions of people. i was moved AFTER the song.. when someone gave a good comment and she has this remarkably relieved look on her face and burst into tears of gratitude. THAT LOOK moved me. more than her rendition of the song. and the Vera Wang-ish dress).

is that like a mini wedding dress or something?

‘coz it’s amazingly white. i mean like really WHITE white.
