Paying It Forward: Win A Signed Copy of Shout It Out

Hanson Manila

Photo by Kris Rocha

I just had the most surreal half-week of my life. I can’t wait to sit back, finally absorb everything, and get to blogging about it but I also have a huge backlog of work to go through. While I would rather write about the past four days while it’s still fresh on my mind, my love for Hanson will not pay the bills so this quick entry/giveaway will have to do for now.

This unbelievable experience would not have been possible without the lovely folks over at Dayly Entertainment (they are bringing in Lifehouse on May 26!). I know not a lot of fans were as fortunate as my friends and I were and that there are a handful who weren’t able to make it to both album signings. I did. And now I have two signed copies of Shout It Out!

Shout It Out

I guess this is my little way of paying it forward: comment on this blog entry with your favorite Hanson song for a shot at winning this signed copy. Ideally, I’d like the winner to be someone who was not able to get his or her own CD signed, but I have no way of checking so LOL. This is the Philippine release— the print isn’t as good as the US release; the colors are a bit washed out and some images are kinda blurry… but hey, it’s still a signed copy!

    You know my answer to this: RUNAWAY RUN.

    Gaaaaaaah. Now excuse me while I go back to feeling mopey about not getting to watch them sing this live.

    It’s too hard to pick between If Only, This Time Around and Penny & Me. I would say P&M would be the most ultimate, but If Only made the most impact because I remember buying both the CD and tape (for the car lol) of TTA more than a decade ago (crazy!).

    Their songs never fail to make my heart skip a beat or give a spring to my step, but only “With You in Your Dreams” can make me tear up every time. I hope it gets played at my funeral :)

  • Reply Rachel April 3, 2012 at 3:16 pm

    A really tough choice, but I will have to go with Broken Angel. (and I’m real jeluz that you got so close to the boys, and that you’ll forever be remembered by Zac bb) *crosses fingers*

    I love looking at your pictures!

    Anyway, Where’s the love is my favorite song.

    Mine’s Weird, because it made quite an impact to an emo teenager that I was LOL.

    By the way OOT question, would you know what Taylor’s cam is? When I saw it at their Cebu meet and greet I was like “I WANT THAT!” :))

    I’ve always loved their song Lucy, Weird and Penny & Me. Top of the list is Weird.

  • Reply Monica April 3, 2012 at 4:32 pm

    Gaaah, ok. “Penny and Me” because it’s just… perfect. The video is damn gorgeous too!

    Also, I want to add — I don’t normally join blog contests, but it seems pretty cool to join this one from “that girl with the pink hair from the Hanson concert (manila).” No, I’m not stalking you, but dammit if i couldn’t help but notice you and your friends’ enthusiasm before, during, and after the concert (it’s infectious!). Then I stumbled onto this post, and this is my way of saying, “Hi!”

    Plus, free stuff is the best stuff! Does it help that April 10 is my birthday? :)

    It’s so hard to choose before each album just keeps on getting better, don’t you think? Anyway, Georgia is my favorite. (Really, “when everything’s coming unglued, I’ll be there for you” and “I’ll be chasing you the rest of my life” = Kitty melting!) And Runaway Run. You’re so lucky they sang the song in Cebu!

    P.S. I said ‘Hi!’ to you in Araneta and I was really nervous about it but you were so nice! And you heeded my call about giving the other CD away. Yay you!

    • Reply Helga April 3, 2012 at 6:54 pm

      Kitty! It was nice meeting you AND I WANT YOUR NAME hahahaha. I told my friend, Sanya, that I met a Hanson fan named Kitty, like, right after I saw you.

    My favorite Hanson song is “With You In Your Dreams” dedicated especially to my mother. I had it played at the chapel during her funeral. Nakakaiyak pa rin pag naririnig ko yung song kasi until now, napapanaginipan ko pa rin ang mommy ko kaya nakakarelate talaga ako sa song na yun. :)

  • Reply LadyJune April 3, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    My favorite song is Strong Enough To Break because it sums up all the shit they went through with their old label and its such a powerful song. Everytime it comes up in my playlist, I always become teary-eyed… It hits so close to home. <3

    p.s. i LOVE your pink hair. wish i could pull it off :/

  • Reply Kate April 4, 2012 at 12:04 am

    Right now playin “Kiss me when you come home” non stop!!! :))!

    My fave lines: “you might give me, gray hairs before my time. I’d be happy just sitting on the passenger side… Cause I long for u and me and the lonely drive..”

    The melody is old school and the lyrics feel very real. This song Makes me envy all their wives even more- having married a man whos idea of a good day is a long drive with the woman he loves! Sana ako nalang yun! Hehehe

    “Weird”! Lol a bit ancient but not only it is my favorite Hanson song, but I love it terribly it’s on my list of all-time favorite songs too. Well, you know how that goes… Yeah.

    P.S. Kami ni PauBau yung tawag nang tawag sa ‘yo nung Manila concert. (Thanks for the vague wave, btw haha) We were oh-so fond of your bubblegum hair but we didn’t get a chance to say hi. (But I had the chance to ambush your favorite ~groupie, KC Concepcion to send her off an avalanche of faneys.) Sayang, ka-row mo pa naman din si Aia!

  • Reply Kat April 4, 2012 at 1:09 pm

    Bakit ngayon ko lang nakita to? Haha.

    While I have a special spot for “Mmmbop”, my favorite song would be “Minute Without You”. I had a crush on this boy back then, and I felt that this song fits how I couldn’t wait to go back to school every day just to see him. Cheesy, but now I can look back at it and laugh. :)

    “A Minute Without You” is my favorite Hanson song, hands down. :) It’s the first song (along with “This Time Around” and “Save Me”) that made me fall in love with the band, which actually wasn’t too long ago… I’ve only been a fan for two years, so I’m a relatively new fan. Haha, just sharing!

    Oh wow :) Look at that smile on your face, Helga! :) I love Hanson but I completely forgot about the concert and there was this time I was at a stoplight, singing and dancing Crazy Beautiful. Then a very cute guy comes to stop beside my car and saw everything. *facepalm*

  • Reply Eve April 9, 2012 at 6:29 pm

    My all time fave Hanson song aside from MADELINE is BREAKTOWN from their unreleased album because it reflects everything what I’ve been through while I was struggling from my personal problems. I just listen to or watch Hanson’s unreleased songs through YouTube since I still can’t afford to purchase anything from the Hanson Online Store.

    Thanks for posting this blog entry. Malaking chance ito para sa mga katulad naming Hanson fan na hindi nakapunta sa autograph signing last March29. “,

    Lost Without Each Other.

    My most favorite song at the concert! I was at the concert and I think I saw you there, coz I remember your hair. :) I wasn’t able to come to the M&G because of work. I really want that signed CD, my 15-year dream will be fulfilled if I won this thing. :)))

  • Reply Jayne April 9, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    My favorite Hanson song is “Dying to be Alive.” It was around TTA when I had a little crossroad in my life, and that song just spoke volumes to me.

  • Reply marsha April 9, 2012 at 8:15 pm

    “I wish that I was there” is the song i am truly in-loved with.. everytime i will listen to this song i always imagine, hanson is singing it for me :> and i would also love to win a singed copy of SIO album because i never had the chance during their signing at SM North Edsa ’cause of my job :( i wish i’ll get it <3

    Every time I feel bad…I always hum “I wish the I was there” and suddenly it lights up my mood…hope I can be the winner coz the reason why I want the signed CD because I want to give it to my friend whose a big fan of hanson since 1997 ..She badly wants it but in some reason she doesn’t have it…

  • Reply Gail April 9, 2012 at 9:44 pm

    I personally would say, Broken Angel.It is a song about not being accepted because you are different from the social cliques. People would reject you instantly because you don’t fit in with their “standards”. There are many mean people nowadays, they would judge you without a second look. Words cannot kill you physically, but it can kill your spirits in an instant. It also like the story of my life. I am socially awkward with almost everyone else,and i was bullied my whole life. This song (and every Hanson’s song; and God, of course) has been my rock ever since.

  • Reply Elibeth86 April 10, 2012 at 2:10 am

    Hi How are you Im Elizabeth im Fansonsince 1997 my favourite song is Get up & go

    u have a great heart :)

    Kisses Kisses!!

  • Reply jerah April 10, 2012 at 8:12 am

    I would say Bittersweet. There’s something poignant about the song that I can’t describe, maybe it is on how Zac sang the song or maybe because of its sweet romantic lyrics…

    Never got the chance to go to CD signing because I can’t leave because of my work,,, but been regretting it thinking of the idea of THEM and me with just a table apart! I hope I’ll have a chance on their next visit.

  • Reply Anne April 10, 2012 at 11:44 am

    I would pick Dream Girl. I’m really wondering who this “dream girl” they’re referring to in this song.LOL! I believe that there’s a story behind every song that they have written.

    I’m dying to get a signed cd but I failed to get one bcoz of a very stupid reason. Actually, I was there at SM Cebu but I didn’t have guts to get in coz I was in solo flight that time and I’m not really sure as to what would I tell them when they will sign my cd. But deep inside me, I wanna tell them how much I love them. I’m a huge fan since Mmmbop.
