Where Are You Now - Honor Society

Just watched the movie "Bandslam" yesterday and I really enjoyed it. I cant deny i am always fascinated with movies that involved music or dance. And I will also love them, no matter how bad. Oh well, if it involves music or dance, it cant really be that bad, right? Think "Sound of Music", "Sister Act" etc.. All are excellent movies..

Now, let's enjoy one of the songs in the movie. I only remembered hearing it at the credits though. However, it reminds me of my long gone youth, somehow.. Enjoy. :)

Where Are You Now - Honor Society

To my favorite teacher
Who told me never give up
To my 5th grade crush
Who I thought I really loved
To the guys I missed
And the girls we kissed
Where are you now?

To my ex-best friends
Don´t know how we grew apart
To my favorite band
And sing-alongs in my car
To the face I see
In my memories
Where are you now?

Where are you now?
Cause I´m thinking of you
You showed me how
How to live like I do
If it wasn´t for you
I would never be who I am

To my first girlfriend
I thought for sure was the one
To my last girlfriend
Sorry that I screwed it up
To the ones I loved
But didn't show it enough
Where are you now?

Where are you now?
Cause I'm thinking of you
You showed me how,
how to live like I do
If it wasnt for you
I would never be who I am.

And I'll never see those days again
And things will never be that way again
But thats just how it goes,
People change,
But I know
I wont forget you

To the ones who cared
And who were there from the start
To the love that left
and took a piece of my heart
To the few who´d swear
I´d never go anywhere
Where are you now?

Where are you now?
Cause I´m thinking of you
You showed me how
How to live like I do
If it wasn´t for you
I would never be who I am

If it wasn´t for you
I would never be who I am
If it wasn´t for you
I´d be nothing
Where are you now?

I Love The Way You're Breaking My Heart - Peggy Lee

Just watched this movie, Bernard & Doris over DVD and heard this song in the movie as well as during the credits.. It really captures my attention and I think it is really a great song.. Hope you think so too. Enjoy~~ ^_^


I Love The Way You're Breaking My Heart - Peggy Lee

I love the way you're breaking my heart
It's terribly, terribly, terribly, terribly thrilling
I love the way you're breaking my heart
Although you're gonna ruin it
It's heaven while you're doin' it
I love the way I feel when we kiss
You're terribly, terribly, terribly irresistible
Sigh to me, and lie to me, you really know how
It's gonna hurt tomorrow, but it feels so good now
So darling, just keep playing your part
Take your time and really finish the things that you start
'Cause I love the way you're breaking my heart!
