Falling in love with Lennon and Maisy

It was a pretty rough day at work when a coworker suggested that I peek into the adorkable world of Lennon and Maisy.  If you haven’t seen their video below, you should click play now:

They’re so cute!  It absolutely prompted me to look into more of their work, and what blew my mind were their ages:  Lennon is 12, and Maisy, 8.

I rapidly viewed all of their videos and though this rendition of Jason Mraz’s I Won’t Give Up is already a perfect accompaniment to an onsite wedding video:

It was Maisy’s growling rendition of Missy Higgins’ Secret that sent chills up and down my spine.

Who wouldn’t fall in love with these two?!  They even made a thank you video!  Look out for the second “we”!

They’re going to guest star on a TV show called Nashville.  I don’t really watch that one, but I think I will have to download that particular episode just to see these two.

Subscribe to their YouTube channel here, follow them on Twitter, and like their Facebook page.

Yeah yeah, I did all three.  Hahahah.

Day 25: All Day

Day 25 is a song I could listen to all day.

Okay, so I’ve obviously been delaying it because I honestly cannot believe it.  I ACTUALLY COMPLETED THIS ONE!  Hahahaha.  I know right?  In spite of the Cebu trip (more on that later), and the fact that I haven’t even posted our Holy Week Baguio escape (is it too late for that one?), I actually completed this song challenge.  I must admit I am pretty proud of myself.

And with that I end with a song I can listen to over and over again.  It’s mainly because it’s one of the happier songs I’ve heard and then it’s by one of my favorite bands, and I just can’t stop adoring them.  I envy Mo Twister for sitting front row in their most recent concert.  And I hate that they all have families and have perfectly happy family lives.  So not rock and roll, but hey!  It must be the new rock and roll theme:  happy and with family.

Thank you for those who joined me in this challenge.  Or rather, those who tuned in and placed bets whether or not I can finish this challenge.  I truly appreciate it.  Rest assured I am doing my best to make this blog far more entertaining than just posting songs, but it’s Coldplay.  How can anyone not love Coldplay? :)

Okay so it’s only three years old, but what can you do?  It’s a good running song, a cooking in the afternoon song, a wake up song, and a shower song when you have to shower really fast and you’re in a hurry.  It’s a good song right? :)

Day 16: Cry

Day 16 is a song that has made me cry.

I know this will seem like a cliche now, but if I happen to post this say, a couple of years ago, I would’ve appeared unique.  I have loved Adele since Hometown Glory and Chasing Pavements.  Sometimes, I find her fame annoying.  All of a sudden, everyone is coming up with a cover of an Adele song and everyone keeps listening to it and the jeepneys kept playing her song, and videoke bars keep having bad singers give their own rendition… I miss loving and adoring and admiring Adele like a guarded secret.

But brilliance and sheer talent cannot be contained.  I just have to live with it.  When she first released 21, I didn’t immediately gravitate towards Rolling in the Deep.  It was her Brit Awards performance that just brought me to tears.  I know I posted this before but what the heck?  Let’s post it again.

I would like to still believe that this is our generation’s I Will Always Love You.

Choked up

Forgive my Harry Potter madness.  It has been over a decade and I never really thought the goodbye would be so emotional.  I keep looking for Harry Potter quotes, images, how these young actors grew right before our eyes, how I became so attached to the book, the character, the story.

I just now it’ll take another lifetime to have something like this again.  Our generation is so lucky to have witnessed something as magnificent as the magic of Harry Potter.  And Jo Rowling is an amazing writer.  And she made us all young again.

And it’s so hard to say goodbye.

I am both eager to watch the last installment and hesitant to walk in the movie house knowing that it is the last Harry Potter flick I’ll ever see.

Oh, be still my heart.
