My Favourite Song: Stardust - Music Sounds Better With You
Link on YouKu (For members that cannot access YouTube)
This dance song was created by the French band Stardust and first released in 1998. I like this song because it is perfect for relaxing to on a sunny beach or dancing to in a funky nightclub. When I listen to this song I can forget about everything, close my eyes, and imagine I'm having a good time somewhere hot and sunny. This song reminds me of holidays abroad and of fun nights out with my friends!

A very powerful song. I can see that this is an important song for you. Thank you for sharing this.
This is a classic song. You actually dance like him. Why is this your favourite song Johnny?
I love many songs, one of them is "25 minutes" written by Michael Learns To Rock (MLTR) - a Danish pop-soft rock band that performs songs in English. They are well-known mainly in Asia. "25 minutes" is a sad story about a guys who has not treated his girlfriend well. He makes her sad and breaks her heart. Somehow finally, he realizes that the love for her is still there, he still loves her very much. He regrets what he has done to her, he wants to say sorry, however...." 25 minutes " it's too late....! The lyric is simple, very beautiful and quite sad. It touches my heart :) That's why I love it !
Thank you Cong. I think you've described this song and the video very well.
This is a very sad song about regret. I didn't know this band before but I would certainly listen to them again. Is the video from a movie?
thanks teacher :) , about the video, it would be from a original one, I dont know, but I love it and the song as well...:) I think in Europe or America this band is not as popular as they are in Asia, that's why you didn't know them before...:)
I didn't know that. I've never really watched that series.
but now you've already known it teacher....hehe
as soon as I see the word " superman" , I feel something is coming back....:) it rings a bell , reminds me of a film which I have been really into for long time. Anyway, I love both the actor and the actress, they looks very cool and kind of a well-matched couple....Thanks Vero...:)
My favorite song is More Than Words by Extreme. I actually don't know why I like it- maybe the meaning of this song shows me that 'action speaks louder than words' and I like acoustic guitar's voice in this song. This song makes me smile and I usually hum it when I feel relax. :)
