Samson and Delilah

I am definitely a music lover, with rounds of genre and different kinds of artists... hehehe... Anyway, these two songs have been my "rest mode" song... or should I say a refreshing and very relaxing sound to me...
1. Samson by Regina Spektor - The first time I heard this song in a reality tv program, I loved it instantly. Kinda the same style with Sarah McLachlan which I also like. I tried to search it in the net but I just don't know the title of the song before and I was typing on the search textbox the keywords "I loved you first". Hehehe... Until one day, an officemate of mine wondered why "Hey There Delilah was my status message on my skype (carlo.malbas). I told her that it is the title of the song that I currently like. Then she sent me an mp3 and she said that she liked naman this song. I was surprised talaga when I heard it. Whew! I've been searching this song for so long, Samson pala is the title... hehehe... nakakatawa. Anyway, Regina Spektor is a Russian born American singer/songwriter. This song was used in a 2006 episode of CSI:NY. Really like this song. I play this on my iPod almost 10 times a day... hehehe...

2. Hey There Delilah by Plain White T's - I downloaded this song last May because I saw it in a chart list. The first time it enters my ears, wow... cute and ganda ng song. Talagang nagustuhan ko sya. Then this month, I was really surprised that it topped the Billboard Hot 100. Can you believe that it is the hottest song in the US right now? And can you also believe that this song was released a year ago? This song was originally in Plain White T's 2005 album "All That We Needed", the single was released in 2006 and now it making waves in the charts around the globe. To generate revenue, their 2007 album "Every Second Counts" made a re-release on which they included this song as a bonus track. The lead singer wrote this song about a girl named "Delilah" that was introduced to him by a common friend. She is an olympic athlete and they have no intimate relationship at all. This is their biggest hit so far and thanks to another officemate of mine because he downloaded these two albums for me, hehehe....
