Song Choices

September 23, 2009 § 4 Comments

I always thought it was uncanny that there was always a song out there that expressed exactly how I was feeling either through lyrics, melody, or rhythm.  However, considering the prolific nature of songwriters, singers, and musicians, I guess I shouldn’t be quite so surprised.  I wanted to share some of the music that I have been drawn to recently.

I should put a disclaimer though.  If you ever want to talk about music I am the wrong person for that job.  In high school I was notorious for not knowing the names of various singers, NEVER knowing lyrics, and essentially butchering up anything music related.

Recently I discovered Goo Hye Sun’s instrumental album on youtube.  I had heard about the album before but wrote it off as another Korean actress coming out with a music album.  However, I soon realized how talented she was in terms of composing and compilation.  This is the first track from her album.  It’s not my favorite but the same youtube member uploaded all the tracks so you can take a listen for yourself.

Second, Annie Lennox’s “Sweet Dreams” captured my sentiments for the day.

“Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)
Annie Lennox

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something.

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world
And the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something.

Hold your head up – Keep your head up – Movin’ on
Hold your head up – Movin’ on – Keep your head up – Movin’ on
Hold your head up – Movin’ on – Keep your head up – Movin’ on
Hold your head up – Movin’ on – Keep your head up.

Some of them want to use you
Some of them want to get used by you
Some of them want to abuse you
Some of them want to be abused.

Hold your head up – Keep your head up – Movin’ on
Hold your head up – Movin’ on – Keep your head up – Movin’ on
Hold your head up – Movin’ on – Keep your head up – Movin’ on
Hold your head up – Movin’ on – Keep your head up.

Sweet dreams are made of this… (4x and fade)”

Random funny:

Me: Did you put Rihanna’s “Disturbia” on repeat?
Allan: Yes.  This is my Dota song.
Me: Huh?
Allan:  I play my best Dota when I listen to this song.
Joanna:  Okay..
Allan:  I’m serious!  I play really badly when I listen to those happy girly songs.

lol….

    I love music. I love-love music. I love Dustin Kensrue.

    I am back into the world of music after leaving it 2 years ago. I am quite excited to discover bands/songs that I left behind.

    And I hate Rhianna, but I do (like) Disturbia. It makes me want to march down downtown LA and just shove everyone into the streets and have a giant smile on my face.

    What’s dota?

    Did I mention I really really really like/love Dustin Kensrue?

    Uhh and the best Annie Lennox song? Walking On Broken Glass! Duh. It’s kind of an angry song, sung in a (sort of) happy melody… walking on walking on broken glassssss.. (<- that's me singing)…

  • L says:

    Actually the Annie Lennox/David Bowie rendition of “Under Pressure” is better, DUH.

    Ugh, are we all pmsing right now? Why are we all pulling songs out of our asses? Tomorrow I’m posting an angst inspired playlist. LOL

    I know. I was going to note that K-THRICE is coincidentally very interested in music/song/lyrics. It might be one of those, when 1 has her period, the rest will follow. We have the K-THRICE blood in us that makes us connect w/o connecting.

    I don’t think mine will be a phase though. I am clinically obsessed. Certifiably insane about it. I may start going to shows again. Pray for me.
