Loveless When I Turn Around (2003)
When I was in college Westlife offered their make or break album “TURNAROUND”. It was when a lady who was my first lover caused me confusion. But I let go of her and Westlife’s version of “Mandy” bothered me. I sent her away but I need her today. Anyway, I enjoyed the first rock single of Westlife “Hey Whatever”. It was time to bang my head for I was loveless. Anabelle returned to my memory. The balladry of the song “Obvious” then reminded me of the days when I turned on my charms for Anabelle.
Allowed To Be Frank (2004)
Westlife took the risk of releasing a Rat Pack tribute Swing album called “ALLOW US TO BE FRANK’. Another girl might be coming. A little girl who frequently passed by our school caught my attention. With the girl who I said was in love with me that I just let go of and that new crush of mine, I found it relaxing singing Westlife’s version of “Ain’t That a Kick in the Head”. Followed by the remake of “Smile” I got an idea of a new love affair to grow. It could be with the girl who smiles whenever she sees me, or the passerby who’s got a nice smile or somebody else who can make me smile.
Face To Face: My Desperate Days (2005)
FACE TO FACE was the Westlife album when I fell in love with my college bestfriend Siony. It was my most tragic love affair. “You Raise Me Up” was remade by Westlife as I prayed to God to make my love life successful. I was in the desperate of my days when Westlife collaborated with Diana Ross in “When You Tell Me that You Love Me” (oh I wish we could do a duet coz she sings too). I tried finding myself and had another hope and will to stand and face the world again when Westlife inspired me with the song “Amazing".
The Love And The Love Album (2006)
Finally in the summer of 2006 I won my first girlfriend Elda who at the same time was my cousin. She’s someone who told me that she loves me and made me more than just amazing. Then Westlife released a romantic cover set THE LOVE ALBUM featuring the sole single “The Rose” that suited the joy of having my very first girlfriend.
