The stranger, the better

I’m really channeling this song right now. Someone New – Hozier Would things be easier if there was a right way? Honey, there is no right way. And so I fall in love just a little, oh a little bit every day with someone new Love with every stranger, the stranger the better

I don’t wanna die anymore

For some reason, I love The Smith Street Band. I think their music is actually kind of shitty, but I just love them regardless…because, yeah, I’m weird like that. If you haven’t heard of them, they are an Aussie band which comes across quite noticeably throughout their songs, and personally I think the singing is pretty terrible (not … Continue reading

That time at Alcatraz

Back in about 1997 I think it was, my family went on a trip to America, and one of our adventures was to the famous Alcatraz. We had the old school cassette tape tour (as I assume it’s updated to mp3 players or something now), and I was a tad late at pushing play in … Continue reading

We want the funk!

Ahhh…I’m so in love with a couple of Kendrick Lamar songs at the moment! I couldn’t decide between these two (king kunta and i) because they are both so hip and funky that really make you want to dance and bounce around. Whenever I’m in the car and this song comes on the radio, I … Continue reading

It’s a sunshine day

The other night I was at work, and while I was making dinner, my all time favourite guilty pleasure movie was on TV: The Brady Bunch. When this scene came on I realised why I love this movie so much. (It is so lame and tacky, but I can’t help have this immense love for … Continue reading

Island Girl at Heart

I can’t even remember how I came across this song the other day, but I just felt an instant warming, island connection. It has such smooth,reggae-ish, island vibes that make me feel so fuzzy. Ah, I love it! I really miss my island home at the moment. I’m really missing beach, the humidity, the relaxed … Continue reading

Music = Emotions

Bob Marley once said “One good thing about music is, when it hits you feel no pain” But I don’t believe that. I mean no disrespect to old Bob, I admire him and his music inside and out. But this line…I don’t. Music is such an emotional tool for me and it makes me feel … Continue reading

Blue as your eyes

Sunday night, why do you always make me feel so blue? P.S. It’s been a long while since I’ve listened to this song but, I love Lifehouse.

Crack me open like you always do

Once in a blue moon (read: when I remember) I jump onto iTunes and look up the free single of the week and will often download it. This week’s…holy dooly! I’m so in love. It just touches my soul and speaks to me in so many ways. Gah I love it! This chick has such … Continue reading

Brooooooooooooods

Ahhhh….I heard this song a little while ago and fell in love – naturally – but I kept forgetting to post it. Maybe I forgot for a reason? Maybe subconsciously I didn’t want to post it too soon? I don’t know. Anyway, here it is now…and it is so much more beautiful the more you … Continue reading

Amnesia

Soooo….I’m a pretty open-minded, various tastes kind of person. And right now I can’t get this song out of my head, for one reason or another. (Maybe because it’s played every hour on commercial radio! …which I don’t listen to much anyway, only when there’s a rubbish metal/screamo song on triple j that I’m not … Continue reading

I’m slowly drifiting away

Ahhh….I can really relate to this song so much at the moment. “Waves” My face above the water My feet can’t touch the ground, Touch the ground, and it feels like I can see the sands on the horizon Everytime you are not around I’m slowly drifting away Wave after wave, wave after wave I’m … Continue reading

Without You

The lyrics to this song are really hitting home at the moment…in a good way though. Without You You can hold on if you want to, But you know I never let you go. Ain’t nobody there to talk to, Nobody’s a whole in this life. Only if you could see the bright side, Of … Continue reading

I Wanna Get Better

I have loved this song for a few months now, and despite some lyrics being a little, odd; there are some parts which really hit home. This song makes me feel so happy, crazy, positive…and, well, BETTER of course!! However, I have found it is most effective when I play it LOUD. Which really only … Continue reading

Only Love Can Hurt Like This

On repeat. Paloma Faith – Only Love Can Hurt Like This I tell myself you don’t mean a thing, And what we got, got no hold on me But when you’re not there, I just crumble. I tell myself I don’t care that much, But I feel like I’d die till I feel your touch. … Continue reading

You be You, and I’ll be Me

I’ve been a little selfish with this song lately. Well, actually I had passed it on to a friend or two, but I was going to post it sometime last week and then decided that I wasn’t yet ready to share it with the world. I think I am now… This song really helped me … Continue reading

Jaymes Young, how I love your words

As always, music is one of the best ways to express myself. Even though it’s not music made by me…every word rings true. Now more than ever. “You fucked this up yourself” Jaymes Young…thank you for putting into words and song what I am feeling.

I Love Diversity

Well, it’s no surprise that I love music, especially going to gigs and all sorts of things that involve “live music”, so last night I went to a gig with my ultimate “gig buddy”, I swear she is my perfect match when it comes to music. My complete vastness of what I enjoy, she reciprocates. … Continue reading

Nobody Knows…

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything about any ‘Sunday night blues’. That doesn’t mean I haven’t had any though. And tonight I feel the need to post something. I’ve found the song that replicates how I’m feeling right now/this weekend/lately. It’s a bit of an oldie, but a definite goodie. I miss great … Continue reading

Mantra 7/4/2014

This week’s mantra comes from the lyrics of my current favourite John Butler Trio song ‘spring to come‘. This song is so smooth and flowy and I feel like it’s that perfect combination of sad, relaxed positivity. Which I guess is kinda how I have been feeling lately. So…this week I’m going to remember: ‘out … Continue reading

A Dream of You and Me

I found this song the other day, and while I don’t particularly like the song (no offence to the band Future Islands) but the lyrics really resonate with me for one reason or another. Feel free to check the song out if you wish but I don’t feel the lyrics fit with the tune, or … Continue reading

Gooey

I am so addicted to the funkiness of this tune right now! I’m not too sure what it is about the song, and watching the clip kinda freaks me out a little bit…but the beat in the song…wow! It just makes me want to let loose and move.

Be Brave

I heard this song on the radio today as I was driving in to uni, and have had it in my head ever since. So I’m now on a break between classes and decided to jump on YouTube to listen to the song to try and get it out of my head a bit. The … Continue reading

And Just Like That, Music Saves My Soul…Again

This morning I stumbled across this really cool blog about two people who packed up their lives in California and moved to Nicaragua and created a business that gives back to the world. Their blog/business is called Life Out Of The Box, and it is so fascinating! I immediately became engrossed in what they are doing, … Continue reading

I Just Want The Simple Things

Monday nights are about two shows in particular that I watch. One of them is the show Girls. At the end of last night’s episode a song started to play that I really liked the sound of, so I got on Shazam and found out what it was. Then I jumped straight onto YouTube and listened … Continue reading

A night of self-doubt and destruction

Every once in a while when I hear David Gray’s “This Years Love”, it brings me to tears. Last night was again, one of those times, which always leaves me reeling into a pit of despair and self-doubt. I can’t explain exactly what brought those emotions on, nor can I precisely describe what I was … Continue reading

How Did I Become The Enemy?

Holy fucking fuck I love music!! Sorry about the profanity, but I just can’t hold back when it comes to my love for music. I should be used to how much it amazes me when I find a new song that I instantly fall in love with, or a song that relates to my life … Continue reading

One Last Time

Jaymes Young…I admire you in so many ways. Your voice. Your lyrics. Your sound. Everything about every piece of your music. I don’t think I’ve loved every single song of one particular artist in a long time. So thank you for being so fantastic at what you do and thank you for being exactly what … Continue reading
