A little nostalgia and some nice songs

This is one of the best song I like from Lostprophets. They are not the best band in the world but they have a couple of really good songs. 4am forever is by far one of my evergreen song.
The lyric is gloomy but it is hauntingly similar to my experience. You see, I lost a friend through suicide at the age of only 22+. She was a nice, intelligent girl, with a world of shining possibilities ahead. I dare not say that I have known her for a long time, but the short amount of time I have spent knowing her has been fruitful and rich. I was taken by surprise that she confessed to me in our short time knowing each other that she considered me as one of the very few close friends she had ever had. And the day after, she would be forever lost. Nothing prior to her suicide would have suggested that she had problem with her personal life, considering that she had just married 6 months before her passing.
As I retrospect about our time together, I happened to be listening to this song where I have liked it ever since. This song described well the angst and the sadness of the moment. It was also when I realised, she might had reluctantly reached out for help but never found the courage. I thought I caught a glimpse of sadness whenever she was alone, just right at the edge of my view. All was immediately rosy again when she is with company. Well, my subconscious might have dismissed it for false warning. Whatever it is, there will always be a sign of guilt about the ‘what if’ scenario. What if I could have done something, what if I am more sensitive, what if……
Now a year and 4 months after her death, I am finally here in her country of her birth and death. I could at least visit her now some time this week after my working hours.
Anyway enough of gloomy stuff, here are some other genre of music that I listen to depending on my mood.
Ahh, I love this song since I was 6 years old. It was so famous they even cover it in Chinese or was it Cantonese, Kaoma’s Lambada. That was in 1989. Damn I love that booty shaking. Look at the boy and the girl; I would be famous if I can dance like them, lol.
If I want to be dreamily happy, Inner Circle’s Games People Place. Ahh, let’s get psychedelic with Bob Marley and his weed……
