Le Love

The most talked about emotion in the history of mankind. It can be romantic, friendly, tragic, life changing, heart-stopping~heart-wrenching, complex (I could go on for days)…. and of course, most importantly, – it’s something that exists in the majority of our music. I searched LOVE in my iTunes just for fun –  you don’t even want to know how many songs came up. So, for no particular reason, this is a post all about LOVE and songs of LOVE, some old and new. Without getting too sappy, here is a list of songs that doesn’t JUST include house music. (Don’t be too shocked) 🙂

**Rihanna ft. Eminem – Love the Way You Lie PART II

I Blame Coco – Only Love Can Break Your Heart

Pretty Lights – Looking for Love (But Not So Sure)

DJ Sava Feat. Raluka – Love You (Radio Edit)

Breakbot – Baby I’m Yours

Mikael Weermets – Love is (French Government Remix)

Compact Disco – I’m in Love (Dave Martin, Hamvai Pg & Roberto Winny Remix)

Florence & The Machine – You Got the Love (XX Remix)

To the beat of your heart

Music expresses feeling and thought, without language; it was below and before speech, and it is above and beyond all words.  ~Robert G. Ingersoll

Sometimes it’s about letting go…not thinking, not analyzing, & definitely not being so serious. (Common, we all need that once in a while) 🙂  With that said, the list for today hardly needs an introduction. The songs are all relatively new releases, they’re club bangers, & trust me – you will love them… so enjoy!

Sebastien Drums & Avicii – My Feelings For You (Digital Lab Remix)

George Acosta ft. Fisher – Beautiful (Robbie Rivera Juicy Miami Mix)

Florence + The Machine – Cosmic Love (Morgan Page Bootleg Mix)

Spencer & Hill vs. She’s All That – Jump (Oliver Twizt Remix)

Denis the Menace – Sunshine In My Heart

My Digital Enemy & Prok & Fitch – Reach Out

Dave Darell – I Just Wanna Live ((Ralvero & Bassjackers Remix)

Luis Lopez vs. Jesse Lee – Is This Love (DJ Chuckie Mix)

Kiss Me, I’m the DJ!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day everyone! Unfortunately, I can’t say “Kiss Me I’m Irish!” but I can say “Kiss Me…bc I’m the DJ” 🙂 In light of all the drinking festivities going on tonite (or for those ambitious ones… could be during the day), I have elected to post music about DRINKING! Whether you’re sipping on green beer at an Irish Pub, decadently dressed in GREEN so that you won’t get pinched, or feeling brave and doing an Irish jig, I wish you a Happy & Safe drinking extravaganza and hope you will throw these songs on to your ipod for some music that will get you in the mood!

In case you DIDN’T know the story:

Legend                                                                                                                                                     St Patrick’s Day is held on 17 March, which is believed to be the day he died. Patrick was captured by Irish raiders from his home in Wales and reputedly herded sheep on the slopes of Slemish in County Antrim during his captivity. He managed to make his way home after six years, but later returned to Ireland with a mission to convert the Irish to Christianity.

Legend has it that he used the shamrock to teach the concept of the Holy Trinity and banished snakes from the island. It is unlikely there ever were any snakes in Ireland, but the snake story may be a reference to serpent, a symbol of evil, and the driving out a reference to Patrick’s mission to rid Ireland of pagan influence.

Irish Saying:

There are many good reasons for drinking,
One has just entered my head.
If a man doesn’t drink when he’s living,
How in the hell can he drink when he’s dead?

Songs:

Riva Starr – I was Drunk

Benny Benassi – I Am Not Drunk

Mr. V – Put Your Drink Down (Bob Sinclar Remix)

Florence  + The Machine – Hurricane Drunk

Since there will be lots of KISS ME, I’m this or that here’s one perfect for the kissing occasion! Bob Sinclar vs. Daddy S Groove – Kiss My Agony

An irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired

Roses are red, violets are blue, Dj D’lish has something for YOU! From the candy hearts, to the dancing teddy bears and bouquets of flowers, to the decadent chocolates and the revealing lingerie, Valentine’s Day means something different to everyone. If you’re single, you’re probably saying “Cupid is stupid” & complaining about how every day should be I love you day (which I kind of agree with). If you’re in a relationship, you’re most likely spending time with a loved one. Regardless of how you feel about Valentine’s day, it does get everyone thinking about romance and relationships. So whether you’re with your best friend, boyfriend, or girlfriend, share your love through the songs, because…Music is Love.

Special Valentine’s Day quotes:

“Love is a symbol of eternity.  It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.” Unknown

“In melody divine,
My heart it beats to rapturous love,
I long to call you mine.” Unknown

“If you have Love, you don’t need to have anything else, and if you don’t have it, it doesn’t matter much what else you have.” Sir James M. Barrieve

Slower Songs:

Progressive House Songs:

In my spare time, I often like to write. This is a short poem I wrote last year and I wanted to share it with you for this special occassion!

My Valentine’s Day Poem: Together As One         

Hold me close but let me breathe

Walk beside and not in front of me

Touch me softly, touch my soul

Reckless abandon without letting go

Feel my heartbeat race with time

Pumping love to you who’s mine

Talk of life and laughs of joy

Tickle me inside like a child’s toy

Stare with longing, I’ll gaze at you

Forever knowing, I want you

Kiss me with the power of sun

Embrace our life, together as one

This is Not A Love Song

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.

Dragonette – Pick Up the Phone (Van She Remix)

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

Florence + The Machine – Hardest of Hearts

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

Erik Hassle and Ellie Goulding – Be Mine (Robyn Cover)

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

Flight Facilities – Crave You

La Roux – Quicksand (Boy 8-bit Remix)

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

Nouvelle Vague – This is Not a Love Song

La Roux – In For the Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Remix)

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 🙂
