Song of the Day: Etta James, “I’d Rather Go Blind”

December 1, 2013


First, allow me to explain the reason for the lame hipsterised photo. What I was trying to show in my eyeballs was my Poppycat staring back at me with his huge pretty eyes. Clearly, that didn’t work out, and I couldn’t be arsed to find another photo, so I lomofied it to hide my shitty […]

No Money, Got Honey: Songs for the Poor but In Love

October 27, 2013


So the bro-dude got married to his high school sweetheart last weekend. It was a beautiful wedding and we all now have a residual beam in our (cold, withered) hearts. At the dinner event, my sister and cousins formed a short-lived orchestra comprising of a guitar, a ukele and several strained voices. They performed this […]

Song of the Day: Sitti Navarro, “Wave” (with cats; always with cats)

September 6, 2013


I first realised I had become a crazy cat lady a few years ago when I was driving home and this song came on the radio, making me think of lazy, sun-setty evenings on a breezy beach. And I thought, man, I need a break. I’d love to be on a ridiculously luxurious beach holiday. […]

Have You Seen That Song? “Too Many Ads, Too Little Sex”

April 21, 2013


A friend and I started a friendly song-photography contest. The rules: 1. Each photo should represent/ be inspired by a song 2. Photos are to be taken within 24 hours of the agreed flag-off 3. Photos should be taken low-tech, with mobile phone cameras (well, low-camera-tech, anyhow) Here is my first entry: Kinda hard to […]

An Incantation Song: “Creep” (by various people)

February 15, 2013


I’ve lost someone. I thought I hated her, detested her, didn’t want her in my life. So I drove her away – but now, after about 15 years I realise that I was wrong, and I want her back. And so this is my incantation, my wand-waving spell, my glittering multi-coloured charm, and also my […]

Homecoming Songs: Age 0 – 13

August 16, 2012


“Homecoming” is meant quite literally here. I’m currently back in Sunny Singapura for 12 blissful days, and strangely, this trip has been a rather emotional one for me. Somehow I have managed to sashay jauntily across Shanghai (and etc) for the past 2+ years, tailfeather shaking and all, without missing – or indeed, thinking of […]

Song of the Day: Flunk “Cigarette Burns”

July 16, 2012


So, I discovered Flunk almost one year after they toured China, stopping in Beijing, Nanjing, Chengdu and – yes, Shanghai. Isn’t life incredible? *covers face in pillow and screams* Why the reaction? Because: . . After 5 seconds of the opening bars, I realised I was listening to my new favorite song. I’ve not had […]
