Three Songs You Should Totally Listen To

1. Walk The Moon – Shut Up and Dance

2. Meghan Trainor – Dear Future Husband

3. (My favorite) Train – 50 Ways To Say Goodbye

I’m going to try not to bore you with all the things I have to say about these songs. 

Note. Key word – try.

Mhm. The first one. 

It sounds so happy and dance-y. I can’t listen to this song without busting some struggle jive/swing/disco moves pretending it’s the 80’s and I’m in a club,dancing with some charming stranger.

The second.

Meghan Trainor is the queen of cheese. The lyrics to this one gets me all giggly. Poor future husband. He isn’t even allowed to disagree with the wife ’cause she is always right, even when she’s wrong. *sigh*. It also has that happy dance-y feel. I always catch myself doing my goofy dance and grinning like a happy fool to this one. 

And the third. LOOOOOOOOL! 

I had to do that, because that’s exactly what goes on whenever I listen to Train’s 50 Ways to Say Goodbye.

  
Lmaooooo! Apparently, this, my friends, is an attempt at answering the question, “Where is your lover?”

Wait. It gets better.

 

It’s also got that dance-y upbeat rhythm to it. Whenever it comes on, I start to do my usual goofy dance, but then the laughter takes over in no time.

LOL, I beg you, listen to this song if you haven’t.

Ciao.

All Too Well.

I’m not exactly sure why the first two things I’ve published here this year have “mushy” written all over them.
This is one of my favorite T.S. songs. Maybe ’cause it’s sad and I love sad songs. LOL! Don’t look at me like that. 😐

And thank you for dropping in! 🙂

This song by Taylor Swift is one that tells a story of love gone sour and memories bittersweet.

Falling in love is quite the experience. I think everyone should fall in love once in a while. It exposes you to yourself.

It’s like a drug, bringing with it a different kind of high, no matter how many times it is experienced. Each new thrill is almost always better than the last. How else does one come out of one love-high, swearing never to go in again, only to fall right back in at the next opportunity?

I think that for most people, the hardest part of recovering from a love-high, would be the memories. For me, this is what helps me get through each episode and move on quickly, but I may not be normal, and this piece isn’t about me.

Here, in trying to come to terms with a relationship gone sour, Taylor recounts memories of love that was once new, young and dizzying.
Next she attempts (without much luck) to figure out at what point things started going downhill…
Finally, she resigns, admitting to herself that coming to terms with the break up would be difficult, because she remembers everything all too well. (Not like she has any other choice than to come to terms with it eventually, anyway.)
Does this sound like the average person? I think so.

LOL, memories. Little fuckers. Don’t you just wish you could do away with them sometimes?

Kiss Me.

Disclaimer.
I am not a romantic. Don’t be deceived by all the mush in this post. This was written a few weeks ago, one evening as I listened to Ed Sheeran’s Kiss Me.

And thank you for stopping by! 🙂

I think that everything about Ed Sheeran’s Kiss Me is perfect.

From the silently spoken count intro, 1, 2, 3, 4… to the quiet rhythm that follows, instantly introducing the sound of his music, to the oh-so-mushy lyrics… It’s a good one.

I think Ed Sheeran is a god. But you already knew that.

I watched a recorded live show of his. I hope to be in a sparsely populated Ed Sheeran closed acoustic session one day. I don’t know if that made any sense.
Until then, I will dream and prepare my heart for that moment.

So on this live show, just before he performed this song – Kiss Me, he told the story behind the song. Great songs are often always inspired by great stories.

Two people. 
A man, a woman. 
Both, no less than 60.
Life long friends.

They started falling for each other,
But no one said a thing,
For fear of ruining the relationship they had.
One bird in hand > Two in the bush. No?

They watched each other get married to other people.
I imagine it was hard,
But life had to go on.
We take what we can get, no?

(At least) 25 years later,
Two broken marriages on each part,
Two hearts burning for each other like never before,
Two people who had lived and loved through it all,
Two minds enlightened by years of semi-heartache and brokenness,
Two souls who had learned that life was indeed for the living,
Two people who knew they had waited one too many years,
Two people desperately trying to salvage what was left of their years…

“Eds, Maggie and I are getting married, and we would love for you to write our song.”

Mark was Eds’ godfather.
He was family.

Eds abandoned his tour, right in the middle of it and flew halfway across the world, to be there for two people who meant so much to him.
His leave was so sudden, that it was rumored he had been taken into rehab. About that, Sheeran said, “I wish I was that badass”. LOL!

So on his way home, he wrote this song, and the not-so-young couple thought it was perfect.

I think my favorite line in that song is,
“I’ve fallen for your eyes, but they don’t know me yet.”

The above account was dug up from a distant memory. It is not completely accurate. Mark and Maggie weren’t their names, for instance. But I tried to tell it as best as I could.
