Getting Magnetized – Part I


Have you ever experienced something so inspiring that it makes you feel like… Ok now I know what I have to do in my life, that’s what I WANT TO BE.  Its like the cells and molecules in my body have been magnetized and polarized so that they all aligned in the same direction by the power of the inspiration.

I wrote the tune “magnetized” to describe these fascinating experiences happened to me.   It then became the debut song for my band, Tri-Accident.  It’s not only a great rocker to start a gig , but also a meaningful song to pay tribute to those inspirations that hit us at the beginning of our musical journey….without them we wouldn’t have started playing guitars and drums etc and joined a band!  The chorus goes like this “Something in you magnetized me, calling my name inside me, a little electron stream of your love will charge me up and spin me round”. 

I believe our musical journey all began in that way , and I hope someday we can magnetize others too!

What is your experience of getting magnetized by something or someone?

The photo shows some of my cassettes which I have kept since early 90s. It reminds me of my “magnetized experiences”  in that period.  I will share more about them next time.

  1. Please tell me the New Kids On The Block tape isn’t one of your collections! I was magnetized by that album but I doubt you were too!


      1. No way!!!
        What do you listen to these days?
        I’m really digging The Black Keys and Gary Clark Jr.
        I don’t have any cassettes and CDs, my mom throw them all away during the move. I’m collecting Vinyl these days trying to get all those albums back.


      2. You should… I like cassettes though~ maybe able to find some old cassettes in Ap Liu Street? I found them there before. Black Keys is my favoirite! Wish I could see their live


  2. Are there any tapes you are looking for in particular? There are many at the flea markets here and maybe I can keep an eye out for you.

    I saw The Black Keys live 3 years ago, it was just ok. It was pretty disappointing actually because there was no energy, no interaction with the audience and me and my boys felt like they just wanted to rush through the set and get the hell out of there. Versus Artic Monkeys who opened for them were full of energy. We could totally feel the passion they have on their music. We became Artic Monkeys fan after the concert. We never heard of Artic Monkeys prior to The Black Keys concert. That’s probably their last time opening for other musicians.
