Must Haves this Month

There are three music CDs I’ve been meaning to buy since late last year. On top of this very short list is Madonna’s latest compilation album, Celebration. Being an avid fan of the Queen of Pop, I told myself that I just got to have this album – particularly the two-disc edition. This edition includes practically all of my favorite Madonna songs – well, almost. Each disc contains 18 tracks including the song “Celebration” (love the fan video by the way – the one with Lourdes in it). Along with this is the Celebration: The Video Collection DVD, which I’m also planning to buy. Like the double disc CD, this one also contains most of Madonna’s hits through the years – but in video. Music videos of her classic hits such as “Material Girl,” “Like a Virgin,” “Open Your Heart,” “Like a Prayer,” and “Vogue” are included in the DVD as well as her newer hits like “Ray of Light,” “Frozen,” “Take a Bow,” “Don’t Tell Me,” “Hung Up,” and “Sorry.”

The other two must-have CDs for me is Glee: The Music, Volumes 1 & 2. I am one of the millions of Gleeks who tune in every week to watch the cast sing and perform various songs. And since I enjoy their musical performances so much, it’s only natural that I want to have the two volumes in my CD collection. I already have MP3s of Glee songs though but I think I want to buy the albums themselves.

However, due to financial setbacks I had in the past couple of months, I haven’t been able to get a copy of these albums. Hopefully I can get them by the end of the month.

Muse’s Undisclosed Desires

This is my favorite song at the moment. I never get tired of listening to this song. I’m not really a fan of Muse and I think this is the only song I love from them. But I love it for its catchy tune and because it relates to my personal life. I am battling my own personal demons and the song just feels like it’s talking about me.

Undisclosed Desires

I know you suffered
But I don’t want you to hide
It’s cold and loveless
I won’t let you be denied

Soothe me
I’ll make you feel pure
Trust me
You can be sure

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

You trick your lovers that you’re wicked and divine
You may be a sinner
But your innocence is mine

Please me
Show me how it’s done
Tease me
You are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Please me
Show me how it’s done

Trust me
You are the one

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognize your beauty is not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart

Bloody Song

Found new good music today. I was listening to NU 107 hours ago when a song caught my attention. I was initially intrigued by the song’s beat and the vocalist’s deep, mysterious voice. The song is called “Fresh Blood” by Eels. I’ve never heard of this band before (or maybe I did I just couldn’t remember it) but apparently the song is from their latest album, Hombre Lobo.

I don’t know why but the song kind of reminds me of the HBO series, True Blood. It’s probably because of the song’s title and its catchy lyrics that goes, “I’m so tired of the same old crud/Sweet baby, I need fresh blood.” I can very well picture Bill Compton (the vampire in the show) saying this. The “same old crud” can be likened to the synthetic blood, a.k.a true blood, and fresh blood is of course the preference of all the vampires in Bon Temps.

There is some howling in the song too, which I think adds to its appeal. This is a perfect song to be played in True Blood. Maybe they can play this during a Fangtasia scene or while the always-humping Jason Stackhouse is out looking to get laid via bloody means.

Repossession

Repo! The Genetic Opera just opened in the US last November 7. I got my first glimpse of this film during one of those awards show on TV, when they were promoting it even if it was still in production that time. I caught a sample of its music and since then, my interest was piqued. I love the music featured in this film.

For those who don’t know, Repo! The Genetic Opera is a futuristic goth opera starring Anthony Stewart Head (Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Sarah Brightman, Alexa Vega (the kid from Spy Kids), and Paris Hilton. Yup, you read it right — Paris Hilton is in this film. I myself couldn’t believe that anyone would get her to star in a musical — and with Sarah Brightman, no less! Paris Hilton and Sarah Brightman are like oil and water — they don’t mix! But then again, I still have to watch this musical to see if this combination is good or not. The problem is, the film is being shown on selected countries only. I tried searching for its release dates in other countries aside from Germany, Spain, and Canada but got nothing. I do hope they will release it here as I would love to watch it.

All Things X

The long weekend was over. Now there’s another long weekend coming up. I still don’t have plans though. I spent the last weekend just watching The X-Files 2 movie three times. Yup, my fellow X-phile friends and I watched it over and over again. We liked the movie and couldn’t get enough of watching Mulder and Scully together again. I know some people didn’t like the movie but like what I’ve said before, I DON’T CARE about their negative reviews. I liked the movie because it makes you THINK. It lets you analyze about things such as faith, resilience, and controversial medical breakthroughs. In fact, a friend of mine said that the movie is almost like an art film. It’s very different from the usual blockbuster flicks that have been dominating these days, which do not require a lot of thinking. If you’re the type who’s only after action-packed movies with lots of special effects thrown in (or if you’re looking for aliens to appear in this movie), then this movie is not for you. I’ve written my thoughts about this movie extensively in my review, which can be found here. I would love to see an X-Files 3 as the movie and the TV show still need a fitting closure. I’d like to see Mulder working and not bumming around and I’d like to know what happened to baby William as well as to Doggett and Reyes.

Anyway, I also liked the songs played in the movie. The song “Broken” in particular has a really cool beat, which left me humming along this tune even after the movie was over. Of course, Mark Snow’s instantly recognizable theme song adds beauty to the whole soundtrack. And in keeping up with XF 2’s music, here are a few X-Files-inspired songs that I dearly miss hearing.
