Quietdrive - Time After Time

This song has been playing in radio quite often lately. It is Quietdrive's cover of Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time". Originate from Minneapolis, Quietdrive is a band which genres are mainly pop punk and alternative rock (my fav!)

The album - When All That's Left Is You


The story behind the MV is pretty simple and ordinary- about a song which makes a guy think of the sweet old days with his ex-girlfriend. (I suppose the girl who's sleeping in his bed is his current gf.)

It proceeds with the guy walking on the street alone, listening to the iPod and singing the song as the song goes along. I personally think that the guy isn't that attractive but he certainly has a scent of British style which I quite like about.

Looking back at the sweet old days.. (the Asian gf is cute!)

See! Don't you think so? ;p

They even played piano together! Awh how sweet. (Imagine if I played piano - must be clumsy than ever (lol) cos it's been years since I last played piano lol)

Doing things that 2 person used to do together.. A way of reminiscing eh.

The lyrics of their cover are a bit different from the Cyndi Lauper's version. Just a short line though. Anyway, here's the original version of Time After Time by Cyndi Lauper, from her album "Twelve Deadly Cyns...and Then Some".

p/s: It's 3am in the morning and I'm sitting here studying for final exams while taking care of my grandpa(I'm gonna stay awake till 5am at least because that's the time my maid wakes up.)He hardly eat anything now so I have to give him some warm milo and fruit juices in between. It's not easy to see your loved ones to be suffered like this. I just hope that he won't be tortured anymore. :/

Sorry to hear about your grandpa. It IS tough watching people you love go through difficult times and you sit there helpless not being able to do anything.
