Backstreet's Back, AGAIN!

If 4 out of 5 people SUFFER from diarrhea... does that mean that one enjoys it?
UPDATE : I've listened to their songs.. all of them are great, different but still the boys! My order of the songs from the greatest to the least : Fallen Angel, She's a Dream, Bigger, Masquerade, and International.

I also took down the links for download. I just found out that Backstreet Boys didn't leak the songs intentionally, so they are upset about this. As a fan, I won't repost those links. Backstreet Boys needs to come back strong!

I've just found out about this. And I think it made my day! For you who knows me, you must know that I'm the biggest fan of Backstreet Boys in Tembung! Lolz... I would have said in North Sumatra, but I didn't even go to their concert last year! Though I was wishing I could have gone so bad... but well.. it's all in the past.

Backstreet Boys is in the process of finishing their latest untitled seventh album, and it sounds that this album will be very different from the previous ones (I'm talking about the not-so-successful Never Gone and Unbreakable). They insert more RnB style, less ballad, and they cooperate with many artists like NeYo, Akon, JC Chasez, and more... and they bring back the greatest composer ever, my favourite song writer named Max Martin...

The point is, I think this new album will be terrific and it will be the comeback of the Backstreet Boys. Plus, new album means new world tour. I hope they come back to this so-called "country" Indonesia... perhaps even perform in Mikie Holiday.

Ok, this is from Wikipedia :

7th Studio Album (2009-present)

The group has started to work on a new as of yet untitled album due for release in 2009 and are confirmed to be working with Max Martin, OneRepublic singer Ryan Tedder, and Hip-Hop singer T-Pain. Lil' Wayne, RedOne, Ne-Yo, Brian Kennedy, Andre Merritt, Pitbull, Claude Kelly, Akon, JC Chasez, Jim Jonsin Eddie Galan of Mach 1 Music, Nasri, and many others have confirmed collaborations on the new album.

According To KBS Radio The Backstreet Boys have recorded 18 songs for their new album.

You can download five leaked tracks from this new album by clicking these links :

(links have been removed... hehe... sorry :D)

The five tracks are :

1. Fallen Angel
. Bigger

. Masquerade

. She's a Dream

. International

I'm supposed to download this right here right now, but it's too bad that I'm currently in Neverland and it's impossible to download anything bigger than 1 MB here.. Sucks! But I'll save these links and I'll download them first thing later!

Video of the boys before the last show on the Unbreakable Tour :

Thank you Backstreet Boys, for never giving up and keep on existing! You are indeed the best group ever!

Funny Google Suggestions

When there's a will, I want to be in it.
1. Well, go to google first!
2. Type something on the search bar.
3. Don't hit enter :D

Below are just the products of my curiosity...

Sure... there'll come a day when google is making us stupid... :D Just don't hold your breath.

Haha.. I laughed. Google will eat itself? Google will take over the world? Highly likely, huh? Google will not search for Chuck Norris. LMAO!! I wonder why. Google, will you marry me? Huahahahahaha....

Later, Harry Potter crossed my mind, so I thought... "why don't I try him?"


Amongst "Harry Potter is satanic" and "Harry Potter is sexist", I couldn't help but wonder that more than 800,000 people thought that "Harry Potter is better than twilight". Lolz

But of course, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't try to enter "Twilight is" as well... expecting "Twilight is better than Harry Potter"... but instead...

Lolz... Is this proving something? Well, at least Twilight is also sexist... lolz..

Twilight's fans would kill me if I didn't try this somewhere else... so I went to Youtube :


And there it is... The same result... although I began to question the credibility of You Tube users as soon as I read "Harry Potter is a barbie" suggestion.

But then :


Finally! Twilight beats Harry Potter in You Tube! :P But it also says that "Twilight is gayyy", with three Ys. Lolz

Then I remembered Obama.. the first black president of america...


It looks like when Google asks a question, google has the answer.. :p


Lol again! He will be assasinated, huh? But the negativity doesn't stop there as you can see... "Obama will destroy america", "Obama will fail", "Obama will ruin america", and the strangest of all is "Obama will be tested"... for what? lolz.

And then I typed "Obama will never", hoping it would show "Obama will never be assasinated"...


But it turned out this way. Wake up guys! He IS the president now! Lolz...

But perhaps only googlers thought that way, because Yahooers...


They are more realistic :P

But after that, I put random words and kept getting funny suggestions :D

Like : What's the worse thing than cannibals, one asks... ?

It's when you eat them.


And now confession time :



What about your girlfriend?

Oh really? Cool!


AWWW! Sorry! Lolz

Do you know the difference between boys and girls? When boys are talking about their girlfriends ...


But when girls are talking about their boyfriends ...


I mean, REALLY??? Hahahaha...


I guess in times like that ... when your boyfriend wants to pee on you, you can always say :


People on earth are strange...


They look like a monkey and smell like one too :D


And in You Tube, people look like gorillas... or movie stars... or a hoe :D


What is baby prostitute? Lolz

Beyond that, things get a little insane...

This I found when I was surfing earlier :p
Read the last entry...


What's happening with people? LOL


I think we should create a quiz on television called : "Who wants to be a Vampire"...

but wait a minute... Is becoming a vampire a good choice for your career?

Oh I See.

But you can always learn something from google..


You can find everything in google...


I mean it! EVERYTHING! You can even learn how to poop your pants! :D



In the end, it's just a joke. I really found these suggestions on the search engines... funny as hell.. so now you know, google can make you laugh.

The scary thing is...

You know most people in Indonesia laugh uniquely...

Instead of a normal "Hahahaha...", they say : "Wakakaka...."

But Google knows that too...

Missing Kratos (not romantically, no ^^), and Missing Her (yes, romantically, yes ^^)

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

It's been a while since the last time I played playstation 2. My brother, he took it away to his office and hence I never have any chance to play again. Hehe... My favourite game in PS 2 is and has always been God of War. It is such a great game. I've played and finished the first and second game, respectively God of War and God of War II.

Recently, my friend Riwan asked me a lot of about the game's puzzles. He is playing God Of War II almost everynight and sometimes when he's stuck in the middle of a puzzle, he seeks me for help.m I gladly help him, and at the same time, I miss this game. He asked me to go to his house later tonight, he has some questions for me regarding this game. I will happily come. But now, as I read about the third and final installment of God of War, I began to feel really excited about it.

I went to wikipedia for more info, and youtube to watch the trailers directly. Safe to say, it has excited me even more now... like seeing Kratos' new weapon... Helio's Head... if I'm not mistaken. Hahaha.. You see the trailer for yourselves then... :

Too bad it's in Playstation 3 only. I still don't have that. Hahaha.. But I think I will get that at some point. No way in hell I will miss this wonderful game. Hohohoho...

On a lighter subject (lighter? ^^), I also miss a girl terribly. I want to meet her again so badly that my stomach hurts. I know we have a plan to meet two weeks later, but is it so selfish to meet sooner? I already can't wait... can't wait to see her beautiful face again... ah.. the prettiest... can't wait to talk to her again... and most of all, can't wait to tell her that I like her.

I know.. but the anticipation is killing me. I really need to get it over with. I don't need all this second thinkings which may somehow cloud my head and fill it with hesitation and doubt.

Ah.. but I guess all I can do it to wait. Wait Wait Wait! Something can happen. We never know :D

The First Impression

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view.

The time of falling in love is either vivid or vague. I am between places right now. There is this girl I've known for a while. She has a lot of things in common with me. I like talking to her because she's kind, caring, and not like any other girls I've met. But I don't feel the spark rushing inside of me. I like her a lot and I want to feel it, but I can't. Should I just ask her to be my girlfriend? Or should I wait for more time?

But here's the thing. To complicate things, I recently met a new girl who is more beautiful than her. This girl is everything I want physically. But it's still too soon to tell if she's the kind of person whom I like to be with.

So as I put my question in a pending state, I decided to wait for a while. During this time, I will get to know both of them more better. The second girl, I met her today for the first time.

She is indeed the most beautiful girl. I'd be very lucky to have her. I've seen her and talked to her. We were having a brief meeting earlier. I must admit that she's exceeding my expectations. I really want to know her better and get closer to her. But I am scared of what to do next. I'm not really good with this kinds of thing. I am afraid to push her away. She's one perfect girl now. She may like me but I can't tell.

The first impression is a big deal. Therefore, I tried to be my best when I saw her today. I don't know if it worked.

Ahhh... I'm among the feelings of confused, excited, happy and imaginative. I want to see her again so badly. I'm looking for a way to ask her out again without sounding too aggressive. Damn it, why can't I think straight when it's about her?

But the first impression has passed. It's now in the next step. I must be careful. And now... I just don't know what to do. Not an idea.

This feeling is new. I'm happy. I'm confused. I'm really worried about myself. This is a special thing. I won't mess it up.

Top Fifteen Happiest Songs Ever

My mind works like lightning. One brilliant flash and it is gone.
I believe that music can touch us in a way that's as beautiful as love. If you mix them together, you'll get a combination of something very wonderful. For most people, one of the happiest times of their lives is when they fall in love. That's why lots of songs speak about love, love and love.

This list is the top fifteen of the happiest songs of all time, in my opinion. But happiness is relative. How can one choose what song is the winner?

Therefore, I chose them from thousands of songs I know, narrowed them in to a small number of 52 happiest songs, and from that list, I decided the top fifteen based on these factors :

1. It must be an English song.

2. It must have wonderful melody. Doesn't matter if it's fast pace or slow, as long as it brings the feeling of happiness, contentment, joy, peace, and comfort in my heart. An awesome song can make me shivering with goosebumps, sketch a smile on my face, and have me singing them all night long.

3. It must have excellent lyrics. It's like what Sophie Fisher said in "Music and Lyrics" : "A Song is like a girl. Your first impression is her body, her pretty face, the sex. That's the melody of a song. But the lyric is when you get to know the person. It's the story within." So I guess you see how important the lyrics of a song are.

4. How well the melodies and the lyrics connect, and how the connection can touch us and make us drowned in a pool of happiness. For example, there are songs with the happiest lyrics but written for a sad melody. These kinds of songs are eliminated.

So without any further ado, let me present from the rank 15...

15) The Bangles - Eternal Flame

You must have heard of this song at least once in your life. It's a popular classic ballad that's so successful that it's been covered by a lot of artists, including Atomic Kitten, Human Nature, Rollergirl, etc. And if you've watched the movie "The Sweetest Thing" featuring Cameron Diaz , Christina Applegate and Selma Blair, you'll see this song being sung funnily at the end of the movie.

This song made number 15 because of its catching melody and its sweet lyrics. The first verse of this song is just heartwarming :

Close your eyes, give me your hand, darling
Do you feel my heart beating, do you understand?
Do you feel the same, am I only dreaming?
Is this burning an eternal flame?

If by chance you haven't heard of this song, I'll give you the original version below :

14) Phil Collins - You'll be in my heart (Original Soundtrack of Tarzan)

Phil Collins sang this song amazingly, but the version I really want you to listen, and the same version that makes its way to number 14 is the one from the movie Tarzan, where the female ape singing it! This version is the most touching one. I remember vividly of this song because it kinda has a sentimental side for me and my friends, Ricki Rinaldi and Dabin Sutoso. When I was in highschool, we found this music very calming and beautiful that we listened to it over and over again. What a wonderful song. It is indeed always in my heart.

Come stop your crying
It will be all right
Just take my hand, hold it tight
I will protect you from all around you
I will be here...
Don't you cry.

Ah... even now...

13) Nat King Cole - L.O.V.E

Do you know this song? Nat King Cole was a famous American jazz singer. L.O.V.E is a unique song, you'll know once you listen to it below. I really like this song, because it makes me happy. The theme is of course about love, but more than that, this song reminds me that love equal happy, not heartbroken or miserable. Plus, everytime I listen to this song, I remember the scene of Ross Geller trying incorrectly and stupidly to imitate this L.O.V.E acronym in Friends.

Here's the correct one :

L - is for the way you Look at me
O - is for the Only one I see
V - is Very, very extraordinary
E - is Even more than anyone that you adore


12) A1 - If You Were My Girl

Ah, another song from my past! Haha.. This is one happy "falling-in-love" song. Back when I was in highschool, this song was played everytime I and my friend (glance at Erick Yang ^^) were driving in the car. And this song symbolized the feeling of "in love" back then. It was some kind of our inside jokes, but I love this song nevertheless. Number 12 for this nostalgic song!

11) King Harvest - Dancing in the moonlight

This is a classic! Just like Eternal Flame, this song has been covered many times, the most popular perhaps by Toploader, Switchfoot, Baha Men, and Fool's Garden. The beat of this song just never dies throughout the years. If you wish to find songs that can make you happy, this song is definitely your choice.

You can hear it here in Toploader's version, which was used in the movie "A Walk to Remember". The song's first line, "We get it on most every night" is often misheard as "We get it almost every night".

10) Creedence Clearwater Revival - Have You Ever Seen The Rain?

Yap? Have you ever seen the rain? Or more like... have you ever listened to this song? I love this classic song. The first time I heard it was on an old TV commercial broadcast in Indonesia. Hell, I don't even remember what commercial it was. I just remember this song. Years later, I learned that this group sang it. You can also hear this in the opening of the movie Evan Almighty featuring Steve Carell and Adam Sandler's "The Longest Yard".

The lyrics are simple and great.

Someone told me long ago
There's a calm before the storm,
I know; It's been comin' for some time.
When it's over, so they say,
It'll rain a sunny day,
I know; Shinin' down like water.
I want to know,
Have you ever seen the rain
Comin' down on a sunny day?

9) Heavy D and the Boys - Now That We've Found Love

Now we're moving to Reggae hit which song was featured in the end of Will Smith's movie "Hitch". This song is happy. It's full of joy and the "I'm-flying-without-wings-because-I'm-in-love" kinda feeling. I liked this song from the first time I heard of it, that was when I finished watching Hitch in the cinema. Actually this song is a cover from an old disco band named Third World. Now, if you haven't heard this before.. just press the play button below. This great pop/rock/rap song makes to number 9 of the happiest songs ever!

Spread your wings
So we can fly around the world
Harmony, charm of me
Your fingertips are callin me
When you drop me kisses
You're so cute you drop the bomb on me
(Now) Stretch it, stretch it
Flex it, flex it
Gimme the permission
Okey, dokey

8) Craig David - Unbelievable

Unbelievable! How could I put this great song only on number 8? Lolz. That's because, as awesome as this song may be, there are still other songs happier than this. But you should know that this is the third song popped in my mind if I was asked what song will I sing once I realize that I'm in love. The first and second one? I'll tell you later! ^^

With simple yet charming lyrics that understand me, and beautiful music wrapped in Craig's best voice ever... I strongly recommend you guys to listen to this song, especially if you're in love. Because :
It's so unbelievable,
And I don't want to let it go,
Something so beautiful,
Flowing down like a waterfall.
I feel like you've always been,
Forever a part of me.
And it's so unbelievable to finally be in love,
Somewhere I'd never thought I'd be.

7) Jason Mraz - I'm Yours

Of course! How can my favourite song in 2008 not be included in this list? Jason Mraz best song so far, and this song helped me thru my life. It's not a sad song, because I'm cheered everytime I sing this song, and for that, it makes number 7 on the happiest songs. I've memorized all the words from top to bottom.

Open up your mind and see like me!
Open up your plans and damn, you're free!
Looking to your heart and you'll find that the sky is yours...
so please don't please don't please don't...
There's no need to complicate.
Because our time is short...
This o this o this is our fate!
I'm yours!

Hahaha.. I have to write that! That is the best part of the song.

6) Minnie Riperton - Lovin' You (Is Easy Cause You're Beautiful)

Huahahaha! Yes! This song! If you have heard it before... then you'll know that this song is amazingly amazing. Hahaha... Some might find this song so cheesy, especially if that someone has watched Disturbia and has heard this song played in the TV series "Scrubs". This song is great and placed on number 6 because of many reasons. The most obvious one is that this song is sung from the heart, with Riperton's octave vocal length which was second to none. If you try to pay attention to this song, it also has a very beautiful set of lyrics. This song has a soul of its own. It's not cheesy and lame. In fact, it mirrors the feeling of falling in love so accurately. Way to be on number 6 of my list of happiest songs ever!

Lovin' you is easy cause you're beautiful
Makin' love with you is all i wanna do
Lovin' you is more than just a dream come true
And everything that i do is out of lovin' you
La la la la la la la... do do do do do

5) Eric Clapton - Wonderful Tonight

Do I need to explain why I choose this popular song? It's one of the most romantic, the most memorable, the happiest song in years! Everytime you go to Karaoke, there are plenty of people singing it! Chandler and Monica danced upon this song on their engagement night. The lyrics? Awesome! You've got to listen for yourselves.

Its late in the evening
Shes wondering what clothes to wear
She puts on her make up
And brushes her long blonde hair
And then she asks me
Do I look alright
And I say yes, you look wonderful tonight

Simple, isn't it? Yet, when you're in love with someone... this kind of simplicity of words means alot.
The video below has lyrics.

4) Israel Kamakawiwo'ole - Somewhere Over The Rainbow / What a Wonderful World

This song is one of my all-time favourites. The first time I found out about this song was when I watched the ending of Drew Barrymore's "50 first dates". Then I just hooked with this song. It's hard for me to find the artist and the title, because in that movie, this song was uncredited. After a while, I finally found the name Israel on Wikipedia. That's when I got this song.

From the title, you can see that it's actually two songs merged into one, because they're sung in the same key. Israel, or IZ, couldn't sing this song any better than this. It's the song you can interpret in many ways. Some say it's the saddest song ever, and some say it's the happiest song ever. Either way, it's very beautiful. If you never listen to this, then start listening, because you're missing one of the greatest songs in the world.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
Wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where trouble melts like lemon drops
High above the chimney tops thats where you'll find me oh
Somewhere over the rainbow bluebirds fly
And the dream that you dare to,why, oh why can't I?

3. Counting Crows - Accidentally In Love

This is the second song that's popped in my head everytime I think of falling in love. Identical with falling in love, this song has the happiest beat, music, and lyrics. Like any other great songs, this song was also featured in movies, like Shrek 2. Whenever I listen to this song, I always think of love. And the question I have is always the same. How can one fall in love accidentally?

Making straight to number 3, this is Counting Crows. The song that's as happy as anyone can be :

2) Tommy Page - I'm Falling In Love

Yep! Number one on my mind, the first song comes to mind after I think of love. It's all about love again. And this song is the best song for me when I'm in love. Why? The only way you can try to understand this is to fall in love with your soul mate, and then really listen closely to what this song has to say.

But as great as this song is, there is still one happiest this. But ranking as the Runner Up is amazing! Listen to this song below.

Are you ready for the winner? The number one of my happiest songs ever!


1) Daniel Boone - Beautiful Sunday

Heard of it? This is a true classic for me. I first listened to this when I was nine or so. This is amongst my first english song I listened to, the other ones are The Turtles - "Happy Together", or "Kungfu Fighting", or "Sugar Baby Love".

Why is this song on number one? Boy, you wouldn't ask this if you've heard this song. This song is definitely the happiest song ever! The melodies are played cheerfully. The lyrics are bright and happy. The beat makes your feet tap, and your head nod. There was a time I sang this song in a karaoke pub with my friends, and even though they didn't know the song, but they were happy! Everybody will like this song, because it's a damn great song! It's not only catchy, but it's never boring! After all this years, I still like this song very much.

Sunday morning up with the lark
I think I'll take a walk in the park
hey hey hey it's a beautiful day
I've got someone waiting for me
when I see her I know that she'll say
hey hey hey it's a beautiful day

There you go! The happiest songs of all time!
