A place to get away from it all and write….

T is for Taylor!

Even though I didn’t get to T, for the A to Z challenge, I wanted to blog about Taylor Swift. She is my all-time favorite songwriter. Now let me clarify as much as I love her she’s not my favorite singer. The girl does have a way with words. When I first started listening to her, I was sure she was going to be a one hit wonder…with “Our Song”. Let’s face it…the song was overplayed.

Then I heard Should’ve said No…and was hooked. I am a sucker for good lyrics. Her next album hit the stores and she pushed her higher into the limelight. Love Story, Fifteen, and Change were on this album. My favorite was White Horse.

Next came Sparks Fly…AWESOME ALBUM…so man hits….Back to December, Mean, Ours, Haunted, Revenge….all good. It’s a really great album.

Red was next…this was her last country album. I love the song Red, The Moment I knew, I knew you were Trouble, We are Never Ever Getting Back Together, Everything has changed.

And we are now at 1989 her all pop album and she didn’t disappoint. Shake it off, was a super fun perky song with an awesome video too.

Next came Blank Space…LOVE THE LYRICS.. It’s like any young adult book, drama, movie…all rolled into one. I mean the line, “Cus baby I’m a nightmare dressed as a daydream”…gets me every time.

We have Style, New York, New Romantics, Wildest Dreams, and the mega star video Bad Blood.

So…I can’t wait to see what the future brings.

Carry on Taylor…keep going…

N, O, P

Norah Jones, Ottis Redding, and Paul Simon are just a few of my favorites!!

K, L M

Kesha

Uh…I wrote these, but never posted them….I kept forgetting….oppseee, so enjoy!!

Problems, problems…and more Problems.

When she first arrived on the music scene I wasn’t sure I like her music, but then like all pop songs it wrapped itself around in my head. I hummed that song over and over again that summer. Then she came out with a few more. Now…now she’s got drama.

It seems to follower her around. So I decided to stay clear of it and focus on the tunes…so enjoy the song that started it all!

Linkin Park

Okay so I love the Transformers and if you notice at the end of all their movies they end it with a Linkin Park song!! How cool is that? I’ve always like the unique flare of these performers. They can emo it up or rage it up.

They fit right in with the Transformers!!

Auto-bots fall out!!!!

Murder By Death

When I met my life partner, she introduced me to her favorite underground band, Murder By Death and I was hooked. The lead singers voice reminds me of a Johnny Cash meets blue grass. It’s deep, rich, and just all around good. Not to mention they have an electric cello player! How cool is there?

So here’s a few I like….Oh and they’re lyrics are powerful….Killbot 2000 and Ash are two powerful songs.

J is for….Justin

Justin Timberlake and Justin Bieber have both been hounding my playlist over the past week. I don’t know maybe Pandora was trying to help me, but it needs to stop. My brain now had a soundtrack that mirrors a club. Fun times!

So here are a few of my favorites….and yes they might make you dance a jig, shake your hips, and even smile…enjoy.

F is for FOO!!!

Time is of the essence, I have another 12 hour shift at work tomorrow.

So here’s my favorite F artist FOO FIGHTERS!!!

 

E is for ….Ed

E is a wonderful letter when it comes to musicians. Elvis, Enya, and even Enimen. But for more me I have on favorite E artist and that is Ed Sheeran.From the first time, I’d heard “The A Team”. Have you heard it? Ed Sheeran wrote it, which is AMAZING… The drive you have to have to not only create lyrics that make sense, but you then have to add music and instruments to that….Such talent.

To me he the male version of Taylor Swift. They are both so gifted and as a writer, I appreciate their gift of creating words that pull me into their world. And did you know he dropped out of school? Yeah at 16. Brave!

When you know what you were born todo and have the drive that he has, you will do what it takes. Not to mention, he’s charitable as well. I would like to hope that he’s a down to earth person and he doesn’t seem like he’s caught up in the hustle and bustle of the commercialism of the music industry.

Loving can hurt, loving can hurt sometimes

But it’s the only thing that I know

When it gets hard, you know it can get hard sometimes

It is the only thing that makes us feel alive

We keep this love in a photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts are never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

So you can keep me

Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans

Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet

You won’t ever be alone, wait for me to come home

Loving can heal, loving can mend your soul

And it’s the only thing that I know, know

I swear it will get easier,

Remember that with every piece of you

Hm, and it’s the only thing we take with us when we die

Hm, we keep this love in this photograph

We made these memories for ourselves

Where our eyes are never closing

Hearts were never broken

And time’s forever frozen still

So you can keep me

Inside the pocket of your ripped jeans

Holding me closer ’til our eyes meet

You won’t ever be alone

And if you hurt me

That’s okay baby, only words bleed

Inside these pages you just hold me

And I won’t ever let you go

Wait for me to come home

Wait for me to come home

Wait for me to come home

Wait for me to come home

You can fit me

Inside the necklace you got when you were sixteen

Next to your heartbeat where I should be

Keep it deep within your soul

And if you hurt me

Well, that’s okay baby, only words bleed

Inside these pages you just hold me

And I won’t ever let you go

When I’m away, I will remember how you kissed me

Under the lamppost back on Sixth street

Hearing you whisper through the phone,

“Wait for me to come home.”

D is for David!!!

This past year we lost a legend who took risks with his music, acting, and even in his personal life.

I had the pleasure of watching and enjoying the Labyrinth in my childhood. If you haven’t seen it, you need to. I can watch this movie anytime….and the music …his voice gets stuck in my head!! He owned the King of the Goblins!! Here’s my favorite song.

Then he resurfaced in my life in the 90’s with Nirvana’s remake of his song, The Man who sold the World….made me remember all the work he’s done in his life.

 

I know it’s short, but I hope you enjoyed a trip down memory lane!!
