Christina Aguilera is Beautiful (…and Live in the UK)

After years of searching and waiting, I was able to get hold of Christina Aguilera’s concert DVD of her Stripped Concert Tour. Entitled Stripped Live in the UK, the DVD showcases Aguilera’s boombastic theatrical-style concert show in  Wembley Arena, London, where it was a certified sold-out show.

The copy that I had, was slightly different from the original concert DVD that I have read about. I guess it was a re-release. But, even though, it still had the documented concert, plus bonus features (although the features, in my opinion were slightly altered from the original).

“Save You” by Simple Plan

I’ve read in the paper a review of Simple Plan’s new, self-titled album. In the review, particular praise was given to the song, Save You. I was curious as to why it was taken in high regard that I decided to surf it on the net just to listen to it. Since it wasn’t released yet as a single (or maybe it won’t get released at all), I went to YouTube and hoped someone made a fanvid of Simple Plan with the said song in the background. I found it and I listened intently. Woah! It simply rocked! Save You was packed with so much emotion, the same kind with the band’s past hits like Perfect and Welcome to My life. Listening to it, I guess it talks about a guy voicing out his feelings of being there for his beloved girl whenever she feels down. He also wants the girl to know that he will do everything to make things better for her. I described it as bitter-sweet with a sad atmosphere, but nonetheless, an assuring rock ballad of love.

Jaya: Cool Change

Jaya Ramsey, over the years, has been constantly appearing on the music scene. I have admired her for her humility, dedication, and innovative & positive approach to singing. Aside from that (unlike some artists) she was able to establish and maintain a harmonious relationship with family, friends, and fans. I have always heard her songs on radio, or heard her singing covers of popular songs on television. It wasn’t until this year that I considered her as a musical influence. In line with that, last year, she also released her double platinum album, Cool Change.
