No Rain

I finally got paid after a week of delay. The first thing I did was rush to Amazon MP3 and iTunes and spend a tiny fraction of that well-earned money on some new music. But then Amazon got crafty and strategically placed a "$5 mp3 albums" ad on their homepage. That, of course, compelled me to browse the page and found Blind Melon's 1992 debut album.


It's a great album, and one that I actually don't have. So I bought it because, even though it's not on my budget, it's only $5. I just can't pass that up. Now I'm enjoying myself listening to "No Rain", which is one of my favorite songs in high school. It's still a great song and I still like it. It speaks a lot about my life now. About loneliness, escapism, and the hopes of finding love.

I especially love this line:

And all I can do is read a book to stay awake
And it rips my life away, but it's a great escape
"No Rain" by Blind Melon

Nung bata pa ako, medyo hindi ko trip 'yung mga ganyang music. Puro Martin Nievera at Gary V ang pinapakinggan ko. LOL

Good Lord, they actually remastered Blind Melon! Nice find!

Hopefully the store will be open mid july, with lots of stuff to sell. If you plan to visit feel free to drop by anytime (I plan to set it at Seba Bowling for the foot traffic)

Thanks man.

That is a sweet album-from a talent, like many of that age, to have been snuffed out too early. good choice. if u like this-also check out some great songs from the other album 'soup'-notably track #1 "Galaxie" and #5 "Toes across the floor", "Walk", "Mouthful Of Cavities"-too many...quality,rare,lost gems...
