Call me a hopeless romantic, well… that’s probably what I am, but for today’s post, I was inspired by none other than those crazy emotions we have for someone we care about. Yes, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. Those initial feelings that get your blood pumping, your heart racing (yah house music does that to me too) 🙂 , and of course your mind thinking and thinking… and thinking. But most importantly – these emotions we so freely feel, but so cautiously hide. WHY? For fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear of ultimately getting hurt. This post is dedicated to those that can’t share how they feel, to those that need to step up and speak out, and to those who should take the risk of being vulnerable so that they can move forward without having regrets. This post includes a list of songs, lyrics, and images!
You’re my inspiration
Got a special way to get me to believe
Got a special way with me
Filled with admiration
I capture every word you say
Just to get me through the day
While this situation
Has made you fall apart
That you are slowly, slowly breaking
And I don’t know what hit us
But I know it’s my turn
To show you how strong I am
FLASH BROTHERS – More Than You Know (Da Fresh Remix) or Original if you prefer a slower/chillout version
you’re strong and that’s your weakness
but no weakness shall cause grief forever!
nor strength shall be your destiny
your destiny is to come by itself
so let things play according to the rules
of your life
You’ve got me caught in a place
Panic for a minute
Got my brain in a daze
I wish you weren’t in it
There are so many ways
To lose your attention
You can break everything
But so I can take anything
Saturday night, I had the great (& very exciting) honor to hear AN21 & Steve Angello spin at Avalon in Hollywood. What an amazing experience it was to be in the presence of two very talented brother DJs. 🙂 AN21 spun till about 1am, where he turned over the floor to his big brother Steve Angello. As I was only there till 3 am, the music was unbelievable…& the nite was filled with lots of dancing OF COURSE. There’s something to be said about DJs that are truly passionate and dedicated to their work. Their love of music is easily translated to the audience & that connection between the musician and their adoring fans is genuine and untouchable. This happened last nite. The post for today will feature my favorite songs/remixes from Saturday night, as well as a couple others I felt like throwing in. If you have a chance to see Steve Angello & AN21 live, I would more than recommend doing so! All I have to say is that I’m waiting to see Swedish House Mafia do a show in LA! (If you want to see some of the videos I took on Saturday nite, go to my Youtube Channel DJDLish22.
Here are some other new hits:
Most of the time when writing new posts, something unique has to inspire me. I want to write based on my own experiences. I want to share with you how I see and experience the world through music. Sometimes I’m happy, sometimes I’m sad, and sometimes I’m confused. I believe the rawest human emotions, whatever they may be, are ones that can be embodied in music. This concept remains important to me as I listen to songs… not merely for their musical quality and originality, but for the story they tell, and the emotions they evoke through their lyrics. I do admit I am a romantic… and even though it is not quite Valentine’s Day yet (yes I’ll do a sappy post for that), I want February to be a month of LOVE. Young love, old love, romantic love, friendly love, sibling love, family love, pet love, and of course most importantly… love of yourself. The song selection for today is a little random (kind of how I’ve been feeling when it comes to love and emotion the past couple of weeks), but I’m sure you will enjoy.
Pick up the phone Pick up the phone Congratulations I’m having visions of us
Breaking everything on our way outta town Were going places you’ve never dreamed of
There is love in your body but you can’t get it out It gets stuck in your head, won’t come out of your mouth
Sticks to your tongue and it shows on your face that The sweetest of words have the bitterest taste
It’s a cruel thing you’ll never know all the ways I tried It’s a hard thing faking a smile when I feel like I’m falling apart inside
And now you’re gone it’s like an echo in my head And I remember every word you said
You’re the upsetter Stroking my hand What’s my position?
I don’t understand Am I your possession? Am I in demand?
Oh when you turn to me I’m in the Quicksand
They say we can love who we trust
Oooh but what is love without lust?
Two hearts with accurate devotions
Oooh but what are feelings without emotions?
I’m going in for the kill
I’m doing it for a thrill
I’m hoping you’ll understand
And not let go of my hand
***Also- Very excited to DJ my friend’s upcoming Valentine’s Eve Party! Check out the INVITE on Facebook 🙂
