LSS: I Wish I Could Break Your Heart (Cassadee Pope)


Even before winning The Voice season 3, I’ve been a fan of Cassadee Pope. The lead vocalist of the band Hey Monday, Cassadee proved that she does not only have the angst and the pipes but the versatility as well when she entered the country pop scene. Her latest album Frame by Frame sees the artist’s remarkable transformation. She really does sound country-ish (and a really good one for that matter). 

The songstress released the latest music video of her latest single I Wish I Could Break Your Heart just this day (Isn’t it amazing?). The music video sees a stunningly beautiful Cassadee encased in a heart shaped cage with shiny shimmering thingies.

The intent of this blog is to construct an in depth explanation of how the song not the mv touched my inner self and how it affected my emotions and whatnot.


Truth be told, I have been rooting for this song to be picked as a single which means it would sooner or later have its music video which in fact happened! It’s not a song for the brokenhearted and for the weary lovers out there.  It may be but not the perfect and suitable song for that moment of utter desolation and stuff people experience out of heartbreaks.

This is my interpretation of the song:

You want to break someone else’s heart but you can’t because you really love him/her. It’s like saying “I hate that I love you” or something like that where your affection supersedes your fury and disappointment for that someone. It’s also a way of saying “I want you to experience the hell I’ve been through the moment we broke up. I want you to cry and feel the same way I did. I want you to learn your lesson the hard way. But I can’t and won’t so I’ll just get used to the fact that all of these efforts will be put to waste because I love you more than you’ll ever know.”

Okay, so this song is clearly for the brokenhearted.

With Cassadee’s heartfelt delivery of the song I expect listeners to keep on pressing the replay button over and over again.

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

Happy Mother's Day Ma!

My dearest mama,
How are you?
How is everything up there?
Are you doing well there? I hope you’re doing great.
Is it true what they tell us here? That there is no pain and sickness there? Only happiness and eternal peace?  If that’s true then I’m envious of you. You are in a better position than all of us here.
To update you on my life here’s the status quo: Grief has always been a daily thing for me now. Since the day you left us, there’s that emptiness in my heart – a hole that remains, a void that sits somewhere and always tries to make its presence felt.
There are also these waves they call, when out of nowhere I am reminded of you and then a wave of emotion just stirs me to tears.  It leaves me for a while and returns with an increased intensity. Somehow I get used to these waves and the heaviness that comes with it. There are bearable moments, when I can just fight back the tears. But then there are also tough days when I’m at a public place and I cannot control myself from crying. O…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).

If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…
