General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / ''Twilight'' in Morning movie trailer
« on: September 09, 2013, 08:39:36 pm »
This movie seems to be three years old, so I don't know if anyone posted about this already, but I saw this on imdb's homepage today and was pleasantly surprised to hear a good chunk of ''Twilight'' in the trailer. Here's a link to the imdb page/trailer and also the link on youtube.

Vanessa Songs / Lyrics / Sheet Music / Best songs (lyrically)
« on: January 02, 2013, 06:46:45 pm »
I'm in the Creative Writing program at my university and am taking a Lyrics course this term.  For our first assignment, we have to bring in a recording of a song by our favourite songwriter, and since I've been a fan of Vanessa's for such a long time, I thought I would pick a song by her. 

I was thinking of "Half a Week Before the Winter" because of the allegorical fight between vampires and unicorns, but I also love the story in "White Houses", and it's a song I could listen to forever and never be sick of.

What do you think is her best song, lyrically, and why?

Vanessa Songs / Lyrics / Sheet Music / "Rock" cover of White Houses
« on: January 27, 2011, 10:24:45 pm »
I'm not sure if this has been posted before but I just found this.  A band named Cavalier covers White Houses. 

It's at least tolerable compared to the Half-hearted Hero cover of A Thousand Miles, though that's not saying much.  Thoughts?

Creative Endeavors / Watch and vote for my short film! (please!)

Hey everyone!  I  recently made a short film/commercial on the topic of dangerous driving for a contest. There's a prize for Viewers' Choice based on the number of Likes on the youtube page.

If you guys could take a look at my short film and click on the Like/thumbs up button on the youtube page, that would be super awesome! Thanks so much! (And tell me what you think of it too!)

I don't listen to the countdown at all, but he's apparently counting down the top #1's of this decade.  Vanessa is at #23!  Oh how time flies...

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vote on the Muchmoremusic Top 10!
« on: March 18, 2008, 10:00:36 pm »
It's probably more likely to air on Muchmoremusic than on MuchMusic, so it's worth a shot, right?  I wish she was more known up here in Canada.

She's near the bottom of the list.  And as far as I have tried, you need an awful lot of votes just to make it to number 10, so vote away everyone!


General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Worst interview ever.

Well, "interview".  You'll see what I mean.  

I think someone needs friends...


General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / "Wave Goodbye"?
« on: October 01, 2007, 01:53:41 pm »
So everyone's mourning how "All is Well" and "Best Behaviour" didn't make the Heroes and Thieves cut, but I'm wondering about "Wave Goodbye".   I don't know much about it; has anyone heard it?  Is it another one of Nessa's new songs that didn't make the cut?  

It sounds like an interesting song to hear.

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / A dream about Vanessa
« on: September 08, 2007, 07:12:37 pm »
Stupid topic, I know, but I had an interesting dream involving V last night (no, not that kind of dream), so I thought I would ask about it.

The part with Vanessa was pretty short.  I was walking around somewhere, listening to what I thought was "Afterglow" on my CD player.  It was totally her voice, and I knew it was her, but then she started singing and the words were all completely different and the melody as well.  And then I remembered that she had written other lyrics before recording the studio version we all know, so I thought it was the different version, you know?  

Unfortunately, I don't remember how the verses went, but I they were all really, really, cool and I wish I knew... i think part of it had something to do with "green".

Then, she began singing the chorus and it TOTALLY was not "Afterglow".  The lyrics were the following:

Call me, call me
Call me tonight
Call me, call me
Call me tonight

And also, the melody was different too.  I woke up shortly after that and with the chorus still in my mind, I grabbed my MP3 player and recorded myself singing it, so I have it, haha.  

Have you guys ever had any dreams with Vanessa in it?

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / "Pregnant" - wikipedia article
« on: July 24, 2007, 06:47:53 pm »
No, it's not saying she's pregnant.  

So, we all know wikipedia can be very sketchy when it comes to what is true and what is not.

On the Heroes and Thieves page, there is a list of "confirmed" songs.  The last one on that list is called "Pregnant".

What?  I'm not the biggest Nessaholic here but I've never heard any mention of a song called "Pregnant".  First off, it's not a very good title for a song.  And second, it doesn't sound like a Vanessa title, but I could be wrong.  Is this a joke or something?

And then, on the Nolita Fairytale page, on the right hand side with the box, it lists "Hands On Me" as the next single, but we all know that she's hinted "Home" may be the second.  This one is easier to believe, I think.

So, after all that I'm a little confused.  Anyone know what's going on here?  Is there just some weirdo adding false info?

There might be a thread on this already, but here is the vid.  

She's not that great, but seems to like playing the piano.

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Vanessa on tv!!!!!
« on: June 19, 2007, 06:03:29 pm »
First of all, yeah, I should've put this under "TV sightings" but I wasn't sure if people would notice it.

Anyway, I was in an electronics store here in Vancouver and I was just walking by the tv's and they had something on (it wasn't a demo video, but actually tuned in a channel) and there she was!  I only saw for a few seconds but it was her and she was talking (either tv was on mute or I couldn't hear because of all the noise) about something.  There was a little caption under her that said,

"Vanessa Carlton

And I was like... AHHHHH!!!  And then she must've finished what she was saying and then it went back to whatever the hell it was (something about HD Net?  I'm not sure)

Obviously, I'm not being very helpful at all because I don't know anything but... maybe you guys care?

Vanessa Songs / Lyrics / Sheet Music / What exactly is Morning Sting?
« on: June 14, 2007, 04:47:08 pm »
It's my favourite nessa song right now, but... what exactly is morning sting?  Hopefully, I don't sound too stupid right there.

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / "Vanessa dark"
« on: March 30, 2007, 10:47:07 pm »
So we've all heard her mention that our girl has a few "dark" songs of her own... which ones do you guys consider to be dark?  I'm asking because every week, I do a show and each time, I play at least one Vanessa cover... but since I limit myself to only playing depressing music, there are only a few I can choose from.  Just yesterday I played "Dark Carnival" and "Rinse" (live version).  

I haven't gotten any of them recorded live or anything, but if you want to hear my stuff that I've written, here's my myspace artist page:
