This song pretty much sums up my current battles rather well. This summer has crafted me into a much stronger person. It has thickened my skin and made me more able to speak up when things are not right. Die another day is a song that reflects this. Negativity has tried and tested me all … Continue reading I guess I’ll Die, another day.
I haven’t done a song post for a while and I have a few new ones to put here. This woman’s work is a song I have always loved, I heard it for the first time in a charity advert and I felt touched. It was such a transcending and touching song, both soft and … Continue reading This Woman’s Work
If you do not know, I'm a huge Lana Del Rae fan, and she on Friday released her forth album Lust for Life. In one word, its amazing. I have listened to every song from start to finish, and every song I loved, thats rare for me and albums. A song that grabbed my attention … Continue reading Take me as I am. Don’t see me for what I’m not
This is a choice that’s based purely on the way the music makes me feel. Previous choices have all had words, lyrics, a literal meaning, and the words have resonated with me, as well as the music. However this song, being part of the soundtrack to the movie Titanic, it as no words, it’s all … Continue reading The Hymn of the Sea.
I love Whitney Houston. She's another one of my favourite artists. Her music allows me to unwind and think. I often listen to her music when I'm in my chair, writing or thinking or unwinding, with a hot cup of tea and nothing else. In the winter I love to sit there in candlelight or … Continue reading I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows.
I find madonna a truly great artist. She's an icon that did and continues to push boundaries in our society and the image that we want to pursue. She has embraced, and expressed herself so that we can express ourselves too! Now one of the songs I truly adore from Madonna is Like a Prayer. … Continue reading When you call my name, it’s like a little prayer
Lana del Rey. I find her music so captivating. Her music reminds me very much of Kate Bush - esque tones and mystery. Dark tones yet filled and littered with provacative elements. One song I absolutely truly love is born to die, one of her first songs when she was coming out as an artist. … Continue reading We were Born to Die
Jamie T is today's choice for a fave. I love Jamie's music. He's very different from the average and never sways away from singing about taboo. This song is song in particular that took me to good places, and more of his older material will be showing up soon on future posts so keep eyes … Continue reading “Power over men”
Another artist I absolutely truely love, is Celine Dion. I have always been a great fan of her music, from her early work, and also her more recent work, with 'Loved me Back to Life'. However one song that I love of hers is 'Falling into you'. It's a song that I can always relax … Continue reading “I’m falling into you …”
Lets stick to the Sia theme, as to be honest I would just list her whole music catalog but I won't do that and I'll continue to be super picky. Elastic heart is another favourite of mine. Its punchy and like most of Sia songs, the vocals are incredible. The fighting spirit as she says … Continue reading “I’ve got an elastic heart…”
I have gone for a more modern one of my favourite songs. This time, Sia, with Space Between. I find this song incredibly captivating, with the simple repetitive beat in the background, and bass line throughout the song, instead of being boring as what you would expect from such a simple repetitive chord, it pulls … Continue reading “The space between is deafening…”
This song has been a favourite for along time. Like most of the songs I have shared, they resonate more with me now than they did when I first found them. My favourite version however I am referring to is the original Dolly Parton version. I just love it. The country twist that only Dolly … Continue reading “I Will Always Love You”
This is another Mariah Track, whose lyrics stick close to me. This song often finds me when Im feeling emotional or sad. Not thats its a sad or bad song, but the lyrics again, just like 'Just to hold you once again', resonate greatly. The song however is a more upbeat sort of summery song … Continue reading “Forever” Will be my favourite forever, and ever.
This is a song I've found very recently. I never listened to Cher and only really knew her as a musical icon but never listened to her music, until I stumbled upon some albums on my playlist. I had a listen and this was on the songs and I instantly became a Cher fan. There's … Continue reading “Just like Jesse James” ❤️🙋🏻♂️💁🏻♂️
Now this is another wonderful song. Im a big fan of Kate Bush, and her songs and ability to write lyrics that are bubbly and often spooky (Breathing), but then tell a story many people find difficult to tell, again I will allude to her other song Breathing. However Wuthering Heights is one of my … Continue reading “Wuthering Heights” Another personal favourite from my favourite artist.
