Closing time!

Semisonic, that’s right! They will be the soundtrack for my last post in this blog.

It’s been almost a year (3/4 of it, to be more precise) since we “started the fire“, many posts have been written, some great  songs (at least in length, right Lourenço?) were shared, many genres were covered and several issues other than music were referred through our musical journey. But I believe it’s time for me (and me only, it’s not mean the end of the blog!) to jump out of the boat. I leave an infinite list of songs that I would like to share with you, but if you like music you’ll get to know them eventually.

Thanks for reading our blog and keep doing it, there are probably still great posts to come!

Philadelphia

I know we’ve had too much Neil Young and I know promised to give the man a break, but it isn’t my fault! I was watching a Portuguese programme about homeless people and I recognized one of the song as being from Neil Young; I then went on finding it and I realized it is called  Philadelphia and was written for the Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington‘s film with the same name (I did not remember the song from the movie, though, despite having watched it not that long ago).

Below you have a clip from the movie but the voices are quite low, so it’s almost like listening just to the music while reminding (assuming you’ve already watched it) the movie.

If you grew up in the 90’s…

There are a million ways to end this sentence, but the one I’m thinking of is “you love boys bands!”

90's kids

This might not apply to everyone, but it applies to most people – like me and some of my blog fellows (I won’t say names to avoid ruining your already quite low reputations) -, especially girls!

In my case, Blue is undoubtedly my all-time favourite boys band (Paulo’s post with four of us singing Best in Me is just a taste of how much I like Blue) and I might share some of their songs later in here. Besides Blue, I did not listen to boys bands that much – some Portuguese ones, like Excesso or D’Arrasar, and Backstreet Boys, of course!

But there’s another boys band that I really like – Westlife. They have quite beautiful ballads, some original ones and some really nice covers. I’ll leave you each one of them, both quite beautiful songs 🙂
