Happy Pill

Here's Ben Folds and his cover of Postal Service's 'Such Great Heights'. While I like the original version too much that very early in our engagement I asked Jay if we could use it for our 'impending' onsite video, come sometime next year (na malapit na!). Ben Folds is one fun and talented guy. And check out the 'ringtone' and 'guitar orchestra'. wah! asteeg po, mga tito at tita.

ngayon, kung super evolved na ang AB Chorale (na alumni version na nga pala, ohmaygad!), feeling ko mas magaling pa sila dito (wala akong makitang version na natuwa ako nang super--yung all girls ay masyadong pitchy at sapawan, at yung iba eh ewan ko, this one is kwela. the solos are okay though, so I'll make do with this. hehe):

I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay
True, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you're away when I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now,' they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now,' but we'll stay...

I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening
That frankly will not fly. you will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home
