Biography

Wishlist is a band that's keeping it all in the family. Siblings, Lenée and Jesse Passiglia pool talents with cousins Desirée and Donté Coleman to produce an energetic pop rock sound mixing the pristine qualities of popular modern music with the mature sensibilities of classic bands like Led Zeppelin. In spite of their youth, Lenée, 21, and Desirée, 18, draw from the many ups and downs of life to inspire all-embracing, honest songwriting. Their heartfelt lyrics and spirited songs are sure to take Wishlist to the vanguard of pop culture.

With a front cover and three-page exposé in the December 2008 issue of American Cheerleader magazine, Wishlist's own Lenée "L.A." Passiglia is creating quite a buzz. In the article, Lenée is compared to country music singer Taylor Swift for having pursued her love of the spotlight with great perseverance and talent. She has claimed three National titles at UCA’s College National Cheerleading Championships, was named All American in 2007, and clinched American Cheerleader's 2008 Cheerleader of the Year. Lenée credits the success to maintaining "her three D's: Determination, Drive, and Dedication."

L.A.’s article quotes her as being a “21 year old bombshell,” who “is loaded with talent and a fearless personality,” but such an exciting personality could not be fully harnessed or appreciated without the soulful musical interpretations of cousin Desirée. The twosome has combined talents that compliment and reinforce their individual accomplishments. Never at a loss for words, Des is currently engaged as a public speaker and communications major at the University of Central Florida and is boldly making her presence known. Jesse, 19, the band's drummer extraordinaire, and Donté, 14, dynamic guitarist and multi-faceted musician, complete the foursome.

Both boys discovered a love for pounding on the cans in the early hours of life. Though it seemed natural from day one, their talent was taken to another level by the training of classic rock drummer, Bobby Rondinelli (Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Blue Oyster Cult, The Scorpions, and Rainbow), further cultivating what is an intrinsic, heartfelt groove.

The heart and soul of Wishlist is clearly the bond between its members. Feeding off one another’s creative energy comes naturally when working with producer on the rise, George Alden, whose work with Nsync, Pink, Erykah Badu, Mary J. Blige, and Queen Latifah has only intensified what is an eclectic savoir-faire. Pulling from the band’s deep spiritual conviction, positive outlook, and youthful resonance, George’s commitment to crafting an original pop rock sound distinguishes Wishlist from any other band of its kind.

Lyrics

With Sorry

Written By: L.A. Passiglia/Des Coleman/George Alden

With Sorry

Did you mean it when you said
You were sorry?
Cause I meant it when I said
I’m stuck on you
When you walked out in the end
I was empty

You made such a mess of me
Somehow…

Do you really think that I’m OK
Just because I say that I’m OK
It doesn’t mean anything…
Do you know that I cry every night
Even when you’re with me, it’s not right
I can’t explain, what you do to me
With sorry

Do you know that I’m afraid
When you’re not here?
Do you know that everyday
I wait for you?
You don’t know that I’m ashamed
That I’m changin’

I made such a mess of me
Somehow…

Do you really think that I’m OK
Just because I say that I’m OK
It doesn’t mean anything…
Do you know that I cry every night
Even when you’re with me, it’s not right
I can’t explain, what you do to me
With sorry

You know you tore me up baby
You know you drive me crazy
And now it’s never gonna be
OK, YEAH

Do you really think that I’m OK
Just because I say that I’m OK
It doesn’t mean anything…
Do you know that I cry every night
Even when you’re with me, it’s not right
I can’t explain, what you do to me

Do you really think that I’m OK
Just because I say that I’m OK
It doesn’t mean anything…
Do you know that I cry every night
Even when you’re with me, it’s not right
I can’t explain, what you do to me
No I can’t explain, what you do to me
With sorry

Too Far

Written By: Des Coleman/George Alden

Too Far

I’d hold you close if I could find myself
I feel like heaven on the verge of hell
I wonder, should I save your soul?
I don't want to go
Too far

When I hear your voice I'm at a loss for words
No one but you can bring me down to earth
I wonder, am I in control?
I don't want to go
Too far

The more I think this through
The more I want the truth
Destiny is written in the stars…
But now it's too far

I don’t want the moon
I don’t want the dawn
I’ve already gone too far
It’s not that it’s you
I just know it’s wrong
I don’t want to change who you are
I’m hopelessly damned
Like a lion to a lamb
I’ve gone too far

I want to have you but I can’t say no
You don’t deserve to take the lonely road
I wonder, are we in control?
I don’t want to go too far

The more I think I of you
The more I know the truth
Destiny is tearing us apart…
Don’t say it’s too far

I don’t want the moon
I don’t want the dawn
I’ve already gone too far
It’s not that it’s you
I just know it’s wrong
I don’t want to change who you are
I’m hopelessly damned
Like a lion to a lamb
I’ve gone too far

So now that it’s endin’
I’ll save you the suspense
Your love is stained in
An eternal scar
My heart will be broken
To stop you me from goin’ too far…

I don’t want the moon
I don’t want the dawn
I’ve already gone too far
It’s not that it’s you
I just know it’s wrong
I don’t want to change who you are
I’m hopelessly damned
Like a lion to a lamb
I’ve gone too far

Purple Jeans

Written By: Des Coleman/L.A. Passiglia

Purple Jeans

Sweet love
It'd be a dream come true
For every moment with you to last a lifetime
Hold me tight
Don't let go
Flip a coin, heads or tails
Be mine

Maybe I never had you
Is it possible to be just a dream?
Sweet thing, my heart was yours
The moment you rocked those purple jeans
You slipped up the stage
Couldn't help but catch my eye
Then sent a glance in my direction
A wave, a wink, and a smile

Pinch me
And prove that this us true
'Cause I feel caught in a daydream
Starring you
Promise me
That you'll be
My love my Prince Charming
Ye-e-yeah

Maybe I never had you
Is it possible to be just a dream?
Sweet thing, my heart was yours
The moment you rocked those purple jeans
You slipped up the stage
Couldn't help but catch my eye
Then sent a glance in my direction
A wave, a wink, and a smile

Sweet love
It's be a dream come true
For every moment with you to last a lifetime
I wish to the beat of your tambourine
That we could get back to the scenes of those purple jeans

Maybe I never had you
Is it possible to be just a dream?
Sweet thing, my heart was yours
The moment you rocked those purple jeans
I wish to the beat of your tambourine
That we could get back to the scenes of those purple jeans
Then sent a glance in my direction
A wave, a wink, and a smile

Sweet love in those purple jeans
Sweet thing rockin' those purple jeans
Sweet love, won't you take me right back to the scene
of those purple jeans

Downside Up

Written By: L.A. Passiglia/Des Coleman/George Alden

DOWNSIDE UP

Baby I was never into love
And then I found you
I’ve seen enough
Babe you came and turned my world around
You picked my heart up
Up off the ground

Say say, what you wanna say say
I won’t give my love
Everything I have
To anyone but you you
Tell me what to do do
I just wanna be, be with you

I woke up on the wrong side of love
But I’m feelin’ downside up
I promise you if you jump, I’ll jump
Maybe we can fall in love
You take the chance
I’ll take the risk
Just say you can
It’s worth it
I woke up on the wrong side of love
Downside up

Crazy how I’m losin’ track of time
How can you blame me?
I’m like a child
No I don’t wanna waste another day
Now that I have you
Don’t go away

Say say, that you’re gonna stay stay
I won’t give my love
Everything I am
To anyone but you you
Tell me what to do do
I just wanna be, be with you

I woke up on the wrong side of love
But I’m feelin’ downside up
I promise you if you jump, I’ll jump
Maybe we can fall in love
You take the chance
I’ll take the risk
Just say you can
It’s worth it
I woke up on the wrong side of love
Downside up

Pray pray, say say
You’ll give your love to
Me me, baby
I’ll be with you… yeah!

I woke up on the wrong side of love
But I’m feelin’ downside up
I promise you if you jump, I’ll jump
Maybe we can fall in love

I woke up on the wrong side of love
But I’m feelin’ downside up
I promise you if you jump, I’ll jump
Maybe we can fall in love
You take the chance
I’ll take the risk
Just say you can
It’s worth it
I woke up on the wrong side of love
Downside up
Baby I’m downside up
La, la, love

The One That Got Away

Written By: L.A. Passiglia/Des Coleman/George Alden

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY

Here I go again
Thinkin’ I was innocent
I turned my heart on you
Now it’s turnin’ black and blue
You got the last laugh
You comedian
I got the aftermath
You know

I should be runnin’ from
Self-destructive teenage love
I’m crawling back to fate
Stories shouldn’t end this way
You’re so happy now
Happy that I’m not around
You’re all that I think about
Now that you’re gone

I get all tangled up and it feels like rain
Cause it hurts just as bad as it did that day
You tried tellin’ me that I shouldn’t leave
Shoulda known that you’d never lie to me
It was you who my heart always beat for then
Hope it’s you that my heart will beat for again
And I wish you well, though it hurts like hell
I guess you can’t make someone stay
You’re the one that got away

This is dangerous
I have no control of us
I cannot believe
You fell out of love with me
I’m such an outcast
It’s ridiculous
Tear up the photographs
Of you and I

I get all tangled up and it feels like rain
Cause it hurts just as bad as it did that day
You tried tellin’ me that I shouldn’t leave
Shoulda known that you’d never lie to me
It was you who my heart always beat for then
Hope it’s you that my heart will beat for again
And I wish you well, though it hurts like hell
I guess you can’t make someone stay
You’re the one that got away

What I’m thinkin’ now
Is I wasn’t thinkin’ then
This is not what I imagined

I get all tangled up and it feels like rain
Cause it hurts just as bad as it did that day
You tried tellin’ me that I shouldn’t leave
Shoulda known that you’d never lie to me
It was you who my heart always beat for then
Hope it’s you that my heart will beat for again
And I wish you well, though it hurts like hell
I guess you can’t make someone stay
You’re the one that got away
You’re the one that got away

Good for Now

Written By: L.A. Passiglia/Des Coleman/George Alden

GOOD FOR NOW

If you could walk in my shoes
Stand on my ground
Maybe you’ll see what I’m like
Deal with it now
Cause there’s a lot you should know
Before you can judge
Maybe you won’t think it’s right
But I’m not gonna budge

Cause I might make a scene
It’s just my heart speaking
Don’t tell me how to be

I don’t like to lose
I’ve got so much more to prove
I don’t stand out from the crowd
But hey that’s good for now
It’s my life to live
So I’ll tell it like it is
And I won’t be figured out
I hope it’s good for now
I may not be perfect
But I won’t let you down
And for me that’s good for now

I’m gonna tell you the truth
Life is a game
And I don’t play by the rules
I’m not gonna change
Now you can like it or not
I step it up
And when the pressure is on
I take a shot

Cause I put up a wall
While all the others fall
At least I’m standin’ tall

I don’t like to lose
I’ve got so much more to prove
I don’t stand out from the crowd
But hey that’s good for now
It’s my life to live
So I’ll tell it like it is
And I won’t be figured out
I hope it’s good for now
I may not be perfect
But I won’t let you down
And for me that’s good for now

Cause I put up a wall
While all the others fall
At least I’m standin’ tall

I don’t like to lose
I’ve got so much more to prove
I don’t stand out from the crowd
But hey that’s good for now
It’s my life to live
So I’ll tell it like it is
And I won’t be figured out
I hope it’s good for now

I don’t like to lose (I don’t like losin’)
I’ve got so much more to prove
I don’t stand out from the crowd
But hey that’s good for now
It’s my life to live (It’s my life to live)
So I’ll tell it like it is
And I won’t be figured out
I hope it’s good for now
I may not be perfect
But I won’t let you down
And for me that’s good for now
Yeah it’s good for now
It’s good for now
