2007: My Top 5 Songs

Interestingly, I almost chose 2 songs from artists that aren't even on the charts. One is from Liza, who gave me a CD with two beautiful songs that I listened to death. Allan John has also put some stuff on CD but not released nationally. Yesterday afternoon I heard an Afrikaans song that was very catchy: 'Moenie vir my se wat ek moet doen nie'...('Don't tell me what to do'). Anyway, this is my pick for fav songs this year. Am I forgetting anything?

1) Nickelback - How you remind me
2) Timbaland - Apologize
3) Jamali - Secrets
4) Tracy Chapman Remix - Talkin' Bout A Revolution - Best line: Finally the tables are starting to turn
5) SEAL - Amazing


"How You Remind Me"

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
for handing you a heart worth breaking
and I've been wrong, i've been down,
been to the bottom of every bottle
these five words in my head
scream "are we having fun yet?"

yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no
yeah, yeah, yeah, no, no

it's not like you didn't know that
I said I love you and I swear I still do
And it must have been so bad
Cause living with me must have damn near killed you...

I've searched everywhere for the lyrics to Jamali's Secrets. Seems like they are not the web yet. Guess I'll have to put them up.
