Music Monday - Once in a Lifetime by Gregorian *


Before I reveal my choice for Music Monday, I'd like to inform all my friends here who are on MPG's blogroll that I have finally moved to my very own domain YAY! :) You can read all about it at my other blog, but in the mean time, I would much appreciate it if you could change my old URL at your blogroll to the new one, which is http://www.mariucasperfume.com. PLEASE kindly change my current URL at your blogroll to the new address mentioned above, it will hopefully help me get back my PR by the time Mr. G does another round of PR update! THANK YOU so much for your time and cooperation peeps, MPG loves ya! :)

Okay, for this week's MM, I am going to feature a number especially for my good buddy Hans! See, Hans and I pretty much share the same taste in music, although I secretly think he doesn't like to admit it! So a lot of "My Songs" will surely end up being his as well. Whenever we're in the car or listening to the radio and one of my songs comes out, I'd immediately say Hey that's My SONG, and he'd follow with No, that's my song and we always end up arguing about why this song should be ours, with B as the referee ha ha! :)

Last week, on the way to the hospital, I was in his car and a particular song came on the radio, which just so happened to be MY song! So naturally I said Hey that's my song and turned up the volume, and as expected he said no, it's his song! As usual we debated for a while, trying to ascertain just whose song it was, with yours truly ending up as the winner of course! ;)

So for this week, I told Hans that I'll be featuring one of MY songs and will graciously share it with him, just this once! I fell in love with this song by Gregorian the moment I heard it! Yes it was hot during my disco dancing days and yes it holds so many memories and yes I once recorded this song over and over again in a cassette (way back when CDs were unheard of) and yes, I still do love this song just as much as I did back then! So for Hans, sorry dude, but no matter how you spin it, this one is definitely MY SONG! A song that's very hard to find and rare in almost every possible way, Once In A Lifetime remains as my all-time fave song. I hope you will enjoy my pick for this week's MM, the way I kept on playing it over and over again when I first fell in love with this hauntingly sweet and sexy love song! ;)

Mariuca November 17, 2008 at 2:43 AM

Wah C sounds like B la, jolly and smiley all the time! He he! Hugs for B and C lol!!

Oh no worries abt the song, I was happy to oblige seeing that C is a true fan of this song, must share my joy with another who loves it just as much as I do! Yay for MM! :):):)

phatelara November 17, 2008 at 2:50 AM

I think B is not as shy as C, C can be shy but if dah biasa, he can be a real joker. LOL! :)

Tu la sbb same age group kan, dats why he can relate to your MM songs. :) He said, he had this Gregorian song on cassette, always rewind and play non-stop until the tape rosak! :P

Mariuca November 17, 2008 at 2:52 AM

Ha ha ha I paham sgt-sgt la C! I oso siap tape the whole cassette with this song and played it over and over again in the car, until my college frens pun dah fed-up ha ha, those were the days man! Yahoo, now must start thinking of next week's song but B chopped oredi, wants me to put his song pulak next week LOL! ;)

phatelara November 17, 2008 at 3:07 AM

Haha clever la u tape the whole cassette with that one song!! Lol!! Actually I almost put Roxette for today's MM but I thought nanti LJ or u letak old2 songs jugak so I chose something different la. I love it that MM is unpredictable, it's so much fun!

Mariuca November 17, 2008 at 3:38 AM

LOL Debbs! Cause mana ada CD zaman tu kan? ;) Wah which Roxette song u had in mind ni? Best jugak Roxette, but yup...very unpredictable this MM and I'm loving it! :):):)

phatelara November 17, 2008 at 3:47 AM

I was gonna choose How Do You Do cuz it's catchy! Lol! I baru DL their hits compilation so C is very happy.

Nowadays every week he wants to change his songs on his mp3 hehe. He's not very tech-savvy u know, so I had to teach him how to copy songs and wat not, now he terer edi. :)

Marzie, I wanna go zzz dah ni, today didn't took catnap at all. I talk to you later when I'm up ya! :) Prolly in the afternoon, lol! Thanks again for the song. HUGS!
