Hey guys, it's pretty late. According to my clock over here in the South-east it's a little over 9 p.m. Hope you guys had a good day! Anyway, today's Song of the Day is very specific. It's just one video that I found on YouTube when I felt like listening to some One Republic. So, today it is a One Republic song, just a cover of it. I absolutely love this video and you guys need to check it out, ok? Espceially if you like violin music or One Republic. I like both, obviously. It's an electric violin cover of the song 'Secrets' by-of course- One Republic. The guy that plays it is CRAZY talented and it's pretty insane. The link is: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrKHAsnkF8A. Seriously, look this guy up. I'm not trying to promote him for real or anything, I just think he sounds good and I like the song. I also listened to a cello version mash-up of 'Secrets' and 'Halo' by Beyonce, with the link here -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfJtaDulVeA. This guy is really great. You can tell by the way he plays that he really has a passion for what he's doing. The song Secrets has been a favorite of mine for at least a few years. It always intrigued me how the included the cello and other string instruments into such a different type of music, and how it influenced them. The lyrics to all of their songs are inspirational and really mean something if you just listen. So, I hope you've had a good day and a good week, and I know the music description is a little short, but it's because I'm actually listening to the cello cover and before that I was listening to the violin cover, and I want to find more. I think I'll go listen to another electric violin song, definitely played by the same guy. So, do what you love like these guys and never lose that passion once you have it. Find what you love and don't let it go. Sarang hae to everyone, truly, and Good night depending on your clock.

Hello again. Sorry for the delay! My internet was down on the 29th, when I was going to post another page, and it didn't get up and running again until today. SO how've ya been? I've just been a little busy lately writing another book and since the interent was all screwy, you know. Stuff happens and whatnot. ANYWAY today's Song of the Day is one I wouldn't have ever really contemplated on posting here. I've never blogged about this genre of music, and never about this song. I'm sorry, but it was stuck in my head a few days ago, so that means Song of the Day material. Without further impatience, today's Song is. . . . 'Sexy back' by none other than Justin Timberlake. Weird, right? See, I'm not even a fan of Justin Timberlake, and this song is pretty old, so why the freak was it stuck in my head?? Well, I was watching a video on YouTube with some of my favorite Kpop people in it-of course- and they put on Sexy back and started dancing to it like idiots. Since then that song was stuck in my head for at least 2 days. I haven't looked up the 'official' music video or the lyrics or anything, I just keep going back to that video. I'm pretty sure none of you would want to watch it though, since it's just some Korean guys in a radio station being funny. If you want you can look up the video though! Sing along, dance to it, whatever. Just. . . . Don't hurt yourself. Ah crap. Now that I'm typing about the song, it's stuck in my freaking head again. Time to watch the video for the thousandth time!! Ok, so I'm gonna go do that, you guys have a nice day and a great week. Once again this month's sun sign is the emotional Cancer. Have fun everyday, do what you love, and always have hope for whatever dream you're chasing. Sarang hae to everyone and Good night depending on your clock!
