chucktown trippintones haiku poetry

have i mentioned that
i love

don't stop believin'
by journey, a capella
excuse me?

why do i keep
this video?

i think
i'll watch it
one more time

i'm such a sucker
for ladies who can
move AND sing

love the song, don't stop believin' by journey. a little earlier, i headed for youtube to look for a video. saw one featuring a young steve perry. excellent. saw a performance with arnel pineda in chile. my first time to hear him sing, and was impressed.

then i saw this video (well, actually i first waded through a few other covers) of the chucktown trippintones doing don't stop believin' a capella.

i now have a huge crush on that soloist.

thank you for visiting this haiku poetry blog. :)

  5. You have a good poem here. I never tried doing haiku poems. Maybe some other time i will try it. Anyway, you can check my poems at my site with the name "him" and hope to be your friend.

  6. A very good series. Not quite regular haiku/senryu, but in the neighborhood, and successful on its own terms.

  7. i've never been into youtube, only as an informative means

    i went vegetarian for 6 months, some time ago, but caved in thanks to some lechon (a philippine dish, don't quite know how to describe it, but it usually involves pork).

    i felt a little dirty after that meal though. :D

    belated happy monday. :)
