Music 6! :O

11 07 2010

Yep, this is (at least for now) back while I completely fail at any regular posting, and also while I’m sad and it’s 2 am and I can’t sleep and damn it I feel like posting one >_>

So, first! Under Pressure, which I don’t doubt you’ve heard before, but I love it. “This is our last dance, this is ourselves, under pressure.” <– That line makes me so sad, but it's so wonderful. I dunno. I like it πŸ˜›

Second, Hallelujah, which is just a generally amazing song. "Well I've seen your flag on the marble arch, and love is not a victory march, it's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah"

Leaving on a Jet Plane is self evidently amazing, and self evidently really sad. It has kind of a special meaning for me, but I don't really feel like explaining right now. Maybe some other time.

And lastly, something both really depressing and maybe a bit uplifting, depending on how you think about it.


Music 5

(No time to write anything up before I leave, but I felt bad not having ANYTHING for three weeks so here’s some music for the 4th ^^)

(Yeah I know Baba Yetu’s the lord’s prayer. It still sounds nice!)

(The worst that the 4th can be)

Aaaaand, for the last song for the 4th, the Boss with the BEST we can be (protesting wars πŸ˜‰ )! ^^

Have a good 4th everyone, and see you all in a week and a half πŸ˜€

Music 4

14 06 2009

Sorry about the lack of posts recently. Tons of projects and tests for school last week, and finals are this week, and for once I need to study because I’m right on the edge of grades in a few classes.

Anyway, on to the music!

To begin, the song that a Scientific Facebook Quiz(tm) has informed me is my theme song.

Second, an awesome bit of live Pat Metheny and, incidentally, also a song our top band played last year. Sadly the quality of the sound on this video isn’t amazing, but the song is still awesome.

And lastly, One, because it’s an awesome song ^^

Music 3!

So, 3rd music post now. πŸ˜€

If you’ve been reading this blog for very long (or really even read and listened to the other music posts) this needs no explaining. If you’re new, as you’ll quickly find, I’m best described as odd, and that has some less than wonderful repercussions for how I can relate to most other people. And when I find someone who gets it, it’s pretty damn awesome.

Nothing deep to say here, I just love the song, and that means I’m making you listen to it =P

If you haven’t listened to Born to Run before, shame on you. SHAME! You must now listen to the Boss for hours straight.

And finally, the outrageously awesome Here Comes the Sun!

More Music!

More music for your enjoyment πŸ˜€

Starting off, a somewhat lesser known Coldplay song. It’s somewhat in the vein of Kingdom Come, but lighter. Definitely one of their better songs in my opinion, so I think it’s worth a listen.

Next, another one that I think sort of ties into how a lot of gifted kids (and probably adults) feel.

“I’m not crazy,” seems to be something that the gifted think and say a lot. And “it makes me think there must be something wrong with me, out of all the hours thinking somehow I’ve lost my mind” fits that too. The having to defend who you are as being OK and being weird and different and special (to my completely biased opinion of my friends =) ) as OK.

This one’s just a really nice song to listen to. Not much to say really, that I can think of.

And I’ll leave you with a song from the (I think) very underrated Pink Floyd album, Division Bell

EDIT: Actually, on second thought, I’ll leave you with a different amazing song:


12 05 2009

I’ve been told (I can neither confirm nor deny “the voices'” involvement) that since I haven’t been posting much and can’t use APs as an excuse anymore, that I should at least post something. So I think that I’m going to start posting music for you to listen to when I’m not going to get around to posting anything else.

To start off the inaugural post, I think I’ll go with one of my favorite versions of a song that’s pretty good to start with:

It’s just an all around amazing song. I could go into the personal stuff about why I love it especially, but I really don’t feel like it, and it pretty much doesn’t need explanation anyway.

Next, another song you probably know (I do have somewhat more obscure ones I’ll do eventually too, don’t worry πŸ™‚ )

This one bears a little more explaining, if only because the band themselves have said they have no idea what it’s really about, and that it’s up to their fans to decide.

“How many special people change, how many lives are living strange, where were you when we were getting high?”

The way I interpret that bit is that it’s saying how many of the brilliant, awesome, amazing people out there end up changing to fit in and not have to always feel strange and weird, and how if only even one person get it and see them as they are, then it’ll work out. This ties in with:

“Wake up the dawn and ask her why, the dreamer dreams, she never dies, wipe that tear away now from your eye.” Same deal. If someone is there to understand, then they don’t have to change, and they can be themselves.

And finally, I’ll leave an Icelandic band, Sigur Ros. Takk and MeΓ° suΓ° Γ­ eyrum viΓ° spilum endalaust (two of their albums) really defy description, so I’ll just give a pair of songs from each, because description doesn’t do them justice. (Yes there’re naked people in the third, Gobbledigook. Get over it. Just listen if you have to)
