Music that moves me 12.24.14

So I’m just sitting here on my day off, catching up on news, checking out social media…that kinda thing (yes, I’m fully prepared to be depressed about the state of humanity). In the background, I have Pandora set to alternative radio (for a short time I had the radio blaring away Xmas music, but damn, I’m sick of religious-themed Christmas music…there are a lot of us non-theists and many of us sure would like to have some non-theistic holiday music to listen to…hmmm, maybe I’ll go looking for some). Next thing I know, I’m jamming to a song I’ve not heard of before.  ‘Flaws‘, it’s called.  By an English band called Bastille.  It’s pretty darned cool.

Lyrics:

When all of your flaws and all of my flaws
Are laid out one by one
A wonderful part of the mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone

All of your flaws and all of my flaws
They lie there hand in hand
Ones we’ve inherited, ones that we learned
They pass from man to man

There’s a hole in my soul
I can’t fill it I can’t fill it
There’s a hole in my soul
Can you fill it? Can you fill it?

You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up; let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up, so nothing’s left unturned

All of your flaws and all of my flaws,
When they have been exhumed
We’ll see that we need them to be who we are
Without them we’d be doomed

There’s a hole in my soul
I can’t fill it I can’t fill it
There’s a hole in my soul
Can you fill it? Can you fill it?

You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up; let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up, so nothing’s left unturned

Oooooh
Oooooh

When all of your flaws
And all of my flaws are counted
When all of your flaws
And all of my flaws are counted

You have always worn your flaws upon your sleeve
And I have always buried them deep beneath the ground
Dig them up. Let’s finish what we’ve started
Dig them up. So nothing’s left unturned

Oooooh
Oooooh

All of your flaws and all of my flaws
Are laid out one by one
Look at the wonderful mess that we made
We pick ourselves undone

(and of course I just found out that this is the same band that performs ‘Pompeii’, which I like as well)

Music That Moves Me 11.15.14

I really love getting to hear new songs that just rock.  These are songs that I hear and immediately want to bust out on the dance floor and move to.  Over at Weodmusic, I discovered one such song, Ingrosso & Alesso’s ‘Calling (Lose My Mind)’ featuring Ryan Tedder.  As soon as I hit play, I could feel the music move through me and there I was, washing dishes, and jamming in the kitchen to a song I’d never heard before, but am incredibly glad I did.

oooh, and here’s another one:

and now, because I’m in a Deborah Cox mood a song that makes me feel so good that it makes me cry (yes, I’m crying as I listen to this song. It strikes such a powerful chord in me. I can’t explain it. It’s like when I get extremely angry, I cry. Starting to wonder if emotional extremes just cause me to cry…)

‘Absolutely Not’

Uh-oh, I’m on an old school (for me) roll. Here’s some Melanie C ‘I Turn To You’:

Aaaaaand one more. A little Tamia ‘Stranger In My House’ remix by Thunderpuss:

Damn! I’d forgotten how powerful the natural high of being amped up on good music can make me.  Wish I lived in a city with a good gay bar to go dancing at (well that and some money to go partying with).

Music That Moves Me: Aaliyah

I miss Aaliyah.  I really think she would have been a big name in R&B and Pop.  Here’s one of my favorite songs by her:

This is Music that moves me

One day I need to sit down and analyze the lyrics to music that hits me in the gut and evokes a strong emotional reaction.  I don’t know why P!nk’s song ‘Fuckin’ Perfect’ has that reaction, but it does.  It’s a powerful song, and I dearly love it.  It’s probably NSFW since it contains coarse words (as many probably know I think people are far too anti-profanity).

Music That Moves Me: Pink

I’ve been a fan of P!nk for years.  I think she has gotten quite a bit better as an artist over the years.
