Surprised I Made it This Far? I am!

A Song That You Know All The Words to…

Well there are so many of these, I generally learn all the words to every song I like pretty quickly…. Lyrics just come naturally to me (I used to write songs! but that’s for a future post…). I’m not really sure what I should pick… I guess it should be just another song I like enough to sing along to…. That narrows it down to just about EVERYTHING

Except Barbra Streisand, but it’s not exactly hard to get the lyrics to that song!! What’s it again? Barbra Streisand? Oh and Oooohh NEVER forget the OOOOOOH!!!

Anyway my current favourite song!!!!

Warning for those with photosensitive epilepsy… flashing lights… Oh god I love it!!

All of the Lights – Kanye West

A Song That Makes You Sad!!

I really can’t think of many songs that make me sad right now… Even sad songs I listen to don’t necessarily make me sad. I appreciate the sadness and all but it doesn’t send me spiraling into the depths of depression….

Hmmm…. It’s tough there’s plenty of sad songs I like I suppose I’ll just pick one of those…………..

Ok I’ve thought about it… and there’s three songs* I associate with sadness and loss and I wouldn’t be insulted (actually I reckon I’d feel fairly big headed) if any of them were played at my funeral!!

Wishing you were somehow here again – The Phantom of the Opera

Hear You me (May Angels Lead you in)- Jimmy Eat World

With this song it’s the line “A song for a heart so big, God wouldn’t let it live” Absolutely gets me every time, a giant surge of emotion. I love this song for that reason.

I’m yours – The Script

In this one, the song itself isn’t a sad one but the line “The day news came my best friend died, my knees went weak and you saw me cry” the first time I heard it I have to be honest I actually shed several tears (So so manly I know!!) because I was so into the song I imagined my best friend dying I NEVER want to think about that ever again! It’s my biggest fear!!

Anyway there are my songs for the day… talk to y’all tomorrow!! 😀

*THREE SONGS… I’m getting out of control! Seriously!

Run Away Fast as You Can…

24 Oct


Is absolutely amazing… It was filmed in Prague over the period of four days in the Summer of 2010

I don’t claim to know much about art but I think this is it. I just think it was an all round great production and I was completely sucked into it for the entire 35 minutes. I was left wanting more and that’s always a good sign.

Selita Ebanks the Phoenix in the film is also pretty amazing

Now I just can’t wait for his next album which is due November 22nd

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

It looks promising with plenty of greats featuring on it! “All of the lights” for me is the track to watch even just from the breif appearance in the runaway film.

I was never really into Kanye until 808s & Heartbreak but I just think he’s gotten so much better as time has gone on… or maybe I just never gave him enough of a chance to begin with I’ve got his back catalogue from  my best friend who’s obsessed with him so I’ll give them a proper listen and see how I feel.

I’m really looking forward to november. A great month for music a lot of my favourite artists releasing their new albums!! Happy music days ahead!

Love Never Dies…

14 Sep

Lisa Hannigan

Lisa Hannigan_cr_Ian Moynihan
Great Girl.

I’ve been wanting to post about her for a while but as you can see I haven’t been doing very much substantial posting for quite a while…. (I actually started this post on May 13, what dedication I have…) I’m gonna try get back into it now. This is a fairly ambitious post  I don’t know if I can get across how great a girl she really is.

And She’s B E A utiful…. and I agree with a not so recent post by Catherine introducing the concept that many women are pretty few are beautiful really….


I fell in love with her voice when she featured on Damien Rice’s album O and then just one song on his second album 9 she features on 9 crimes. I always thought she had a hauntingly beautiful voice and that she definitely had the pure talent to be a standalone solo artist.

She and Damien co-wrote the song Unplayed Piano before they went their separate ways … Lisa describes their split as the best thing that’s ever happened to her…

Her duet Some Surprise with Gary Lightbody featured on Greys Anatomy. It was recorded for The Cake Sale, an album produced to raise money for the charity Oxfam Ireland….


I can’t put into words how much I am in love with her voice, there’s something special about it.

So I waited and waited and finally she released her solo album in late 2008.


Overall it’s a Great album and I think Lisa more than proves her worth as a standalone artist and then some… It’s got all you need upbeat cheerful songs and sombre thought provoking songs and just a whole album of that Inspiring voice…..

I loved the video for her first single Lille you get lost in the story. pop-up books are always fun and the colours make me happy… and obviously the song’s great also…

Then there’s I don’t know equally arty and fun, I LOVE the song probably my favourite from the album but the whole thing is really good… You should definitely check it out for yourself… DO IT!!

Let me know what you think sure…

We are not who you think we are…
