Solo - Iyaz (Official Music Video) HD

One of my real fave songs.


I said I don't want to walk this earth if I gotta do it solo.
See girl we used to be a team
Runnin the streets (yeah)
We was living out our dream (ohh)
You used to be my rider
I was your provider
Now we separated in two
Oh we was burning up the block(yeah)
And everybody know when we step in the spot(ohh)
See, we was like the dynamic duo
Id never thought that you'd go, but you did uh, yeah you did
Oh baby you left and sailed away alone (Yeah, alone
And now you got me trapped up on this island
Where nowhere to get home
And I don't wanna go, go
I don't wanna go, go
I don't wanna it no, no
I don't wanna it no, no
I don't want to walk this earth
If I gotta do it solo (solo)
Cuz I was so high
And now im so low
And I don't wanna walk around alone, solo
Said I don't want to walk this earth
If I gotta do it solo (solo, solo
You was the beat on to my top line,
Put us together
And you'd have to hit rewind
See, you give me a purpose
Now I'm getting nervous
That my heart will never sing again
Oh, when we was runnin up the airways,
They knew us from the Virgin Islands to the U.K.
See, we was on the way to the platinum and gold
Never thought that you'd go but you did ya, ya you did.
Oh baby you left and sailed away alone (Yeah, alone)
And now you got me trapped up on this island
Where nowhere to get home
And I don't wanna go, go
I don't wanna go, go
I don't wanna it no, no
I don't wanna it no, no
I don't want to walk this earth
If I gotta do it solo (solo)

Cuz I was so high
And now im so low
And I don't wanna walk around alone, solo
Said I don't want to walk this earth
if I gotta do it solo (solo, solo)
I don't wanna walk S-O-L-O
(no no no)
I don't wanna walk S-O-L-O
"Oo uh oh,oh uh oh,
Oo uh oh oh oh uh oh,"
I don't wanna walk((S-O-L-O))
And I don't wanna go,go
I don't wanna go, go
I don't wanna it no, no
I don't wanna it no, no
I don't want to walk this earth
If I gotta do it solo (solo)

Cuz I was so high
And now im so low
And I don't wanna walk around alone,(Solo)
Said I don't want to walk this earth
If I gotta do it solo (solo, solo)

Shrek Forever After, aka Shrek: The Final Chapter is an upcoming American animated film. It is the fourth and supposedly final installment in the Shrek film series, after Shrek 5 was scrapped. It is planned to be released in cinemas May 21, 2010 in the US And the 2nd July in the UK . Tim Sullivan wrote the original story Shrek Goes Fourth, but Darren Lemke and Josh Klausner made the rewrites, and Mike Mitchell will direct it. The principal cast members will all reprise their roles. It will also be released in 3-D and IMAX 3-D theaters. The plot was announced February 23, 2009.
Like the first three Shrek films, the movie will be significantly based on fairy tale themes.


After all of his adventures, Shrek (Mike Myers) has become a domesticated family ogre. Instead of scaring villagers away as he used to, Shrek agrees to autograph pitchforks. Longing for the days when he felt like a "real ogre", Shrek is tricked into signing a pact with the smooth-talking deal maker, Rumpelstiltskin (Walt Dohrn). Shrek couldn't resist the offer; all he wanted was a day off to relax, to be a real ogre again, and Rumpelstiltskin said he would give Shrek one day where none of his adventures had ever happened and everything would be like it was before. However, there was a catch- to get a day off, Shrek had to give him a day from his childhood. After signing the contract, Shrek discovers he has been tricked-the day that was taken was the day he was born, meaning as he was never born, he never existed.
Shrek finds himself in a twisted, alternate version of Far Far Away, where Rumpelstiltskin is now king (because King Harold and Queen Lillian were originally going to give him the kingdom in exchange for him ending Fiona's curse, but refused after getting news that Shrek had rescued Fiona); ogres are hunted to near-extinction; Donkey (Eddie Murphy) has never met Shrek, is forced into cart-pulling duty and fears him; Gingy (Conrad Vernon) is a gladiator fighting animal crackers; Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) doesn't know Shrek and has become fat and lazy; and Fiona (Cameron Diaz) is an inexplicably hunted ogre who never met (and can't stand) Shrek, and has become the leader of a band of other hunted ogres. Also Artie PendragonJustin Timberlake) has been forced to abdicate the throne for Rumpelstiltskin to become king. (
But even though all seems lost, there's still hope - if Shrek shares "True Love's Kiss" with Fiona by the sunrise of the next day, the contract he signed will be rendered null and void and the original timeline will be restored. However, Rumplestiltskin will do anything to stop Shrek and solidify his power that he now has.

Kelly Clarkson: All I Ever Wanted Tour

The Kelly Clarkson  Experience!

She was here for a One Night Concert only. Kelly made the 1st day of May, he best day Manila has ever had. Everyone head over to Araneta Coliseum to check out this once in a lifetime experience. 

It was a night that Kelly Clarkson, winner of the 1st season of American Idol, showcased her exquisite gift of vocals. Hailed Grand Winner of the first ever season last 2002, Kelly is an act Manila has been waiting for, it took  8 years before she decided to stage her concert here. 

Kelly Clarkson is considered to be the most successful Idol to date.

The concert was opened by our very own Miguel Escueta who sang at least four songs including his hits Fallin' Away and Sleeping while the World's Awake. The show is supposed to start by 8 p.m however, the main show started at around 9 pm-ish already.

Screaming here and there, lights on and off. Indicating the start of the show. Unparalleled noise compounded the Big Dome as Kelly entered the stage. She sang All I Ever Wanted for her opening act. Energy was definitely all over the place, it never went down, she was able to sustain it from each and every performance she did.

Concert goers, mostly young peeps and young adults, was jumping all through out the concert. Kelly Clarkson's vocal prowess is AMAZING. It is unbelievable to be hearing such beautiful voice echoing to your ears. It was powerful. Her performances are all at HIGH CALIBER.  She interacts well with her audience, audiences on the other hand reciprocated. Kelly recently turned 28, and celebrated it in Singapore, she received a cake from a Filipino Fan,  she personally thanked the sender.

(followed by Black Eyed Peas, David Cook - David Archuletta and NE -YO)

For those who missed out the concert, here is the recap of the songs she sang:


1) All I Ever Wanted
2) Miss Independent
3) I Do Not Hook Up
4) Impossible
5) That I Would Be Good(Alanis Morisette song)/ 
     Use Somebody(Kings of Leon song)
6) Breakaway
7) If I Can’t Have You/ Can’t Get Out of My Head(Kylie Minogue song)
8)Never Again
9) Lies(The Black Keys song)
10) Medley(Acoustic Set):
-Just Missed The Train
11)Behind These Hazel Eyes(acoustic)
12) Cry
13)I Want You
14)Don’t Let Me Stop You
15) Because of You
16)Walk Away
17)Since U Been Gone

19)Already Gone
20)Seven Nation Army(The White Stripes cover)
21)My Life Would Suck Without You

Most songs were applauded, some of them were the hits like Since You Been Gone, Already Gone, I Want You, Because of You, I Do Not Hook Up, Sober, All I Ever Wanted, Behind These Hazel Eyes, Walk Away and of course her closing song My Life Would Suck Without You wherein crowd was jumping in to their seats to show their appreciation for Kelly's most precious visit to Manila. 

Okay, I'll be honest. Ticket Sales may have not been as successful as I have thought it would be, but her presence alone is more than enough. Araneta is just half filled. I have some theories as to why it happened. 1) It is Holiday here in our country, and most people prefer to go back to their provinces for that little while. 2) There were not much promotion that was made. But heck, ABS-CBN is known for good events-promotion. They should have spent more to capture everyone's attention.  3)She's not POPULAR here, which i beg to disagree. Her IDOL status may have been since 2002, but she have songs that have been enjoying good airtime plays here in our country, and to think her target market are the young individuals. It all boils down to the producer/promoter of the show. 

I bought the P1500 priced ticket, lucky that some higher - priced seats are not filled, we were asked to fill in those spaces. I could only be thankful. I feel sorry for Kelly, it is such a shame to see that part of the concert areas are not filled. But Kelly Clarkson is Kelly Clarkson. Based on reports it was around 6 thousand Kelly fans that filled the Big Dome. 

Kelly please COMEBACK. Your performance is worth every peso we have paid for.
