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!
“The only way to truly Love is to let go of what you are afraid to lose and Trust that what’s meant to be will stay.”
I do have to admit, that life is a little scary sometimes. Actually, it’s REALLY scary. We have this idea of how our lives are meant to be…who should be in them, how we work, where we play… but realistically, we really have no idea. Things can be taken from us as fast as surprises can be thrown into the mix. How are we supposed to stay grounded & guided? We fight for things & people we believe in, we try each & every day to learn something new, & we eventually figure out to think with our heads & our hearts together. Sadly, life doesn’t come with a rulebook or remote control. We can’t go to Chapter 8 to read about “How to fix a broken heart” & we can’t press rewind to turn back time & fix our mistakes. But we have NOW..the present, to say the things we never said, to speak up for how we feel, to take control…so that we will hopefully live a life with minimal regrets & burned bridges. Going into the future, what we don’t know is scary, but we do know how our lives are now & no matter what, we can save ourselves & whatever else we would regret losing in the future.
“So what do you want and what are you thinking?/Isn’t it about time you stuck up for me?/But what you can’t see is we’re under siege/And I only fight because I believe/Not gonna share you no/I’d fight for you”
“I say release me /’Cause I’m not able to/Convince myself /That I’m better off without you”
“Wish I could spin my world into reverse just to have you back again, there’s no gettin’ over, there’s just no gettin’ over you”
“Will you remember me, like I remember you”
“I’m gonna ask you to look away/I love my hands, but it hurts to pray/Life I have isn’t what I’ve seen/The sky is not blue and the field’s not green/Wait for me”
“You know I care what’s deep inside/Any hurt you choose to hide/But you should know how I feel/You should know that I like you/I want to be openhearted/Why can’t you see/You gotta be open or we’ll never get started”
I really don’t know where to begin for this post… the title today pretty much speaks for itself. I feel inspired to write about what’s been happening in my life recently and to sum it up one word it would be change. I’m sure we all have varying feelings and opinions on change – most of us, included myself, don’t like major changes occurring in our lives (especially change beyond our own power). But sometimes, change isn’t so bad. Change can be the precursor to new beginnings and may also lead to the bettering of ourselves and our lives if we are able to accept it. As always, I have listed some lyrics in these songs that I feel are appropriate for this post.
Di-Rect – Times are Changing (East and Young Remix) Everybody is in a separate zone /All together but we’re so alone/Staring out through a wall of glass/Look away because it’s gonna crash
Bobina – Time and Tide (Gareth Emery Mix) “Every water bonds, where it meets the coast line.
The birth of a brand new day…”
Schiller, Nadia Ali – Try (Thomas Gold Remix) “Believe it’s true, you know that I try to make you feel alright”
Fenech Soler – Stop and Stare “Stop and Stare because we don’t know where we’re going”
**Morgan Page – Only Human “After all we’re only human, flesh and blood we’re only human…”
Happy Monday! I hope everyone is ready to start the week off with some good songs. As I was compiling a playlist of songs for a friend this weekend, I realized the abundance of Morgan Page songs and remixes that I have. Hence, I decided to make this post about my favorites from Morgan Page.
1. The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (Morgan Page Remix) LINK on SoundCloud Morgan Page has taken the original of this song and maintained its “sweetness” and beauty. Listening to the soothing vocals from lead singer Dougy Mandagi, they are truly inspiring: “sweet disposition/never too soon/oh reckless abandon/like no one’s
watching you. The song’s remix builds and slows at just the right moments.
2. Morgan Page – Longest Road (Deadmau5 Remix) LINK on YouTube Nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009 for “Best Remix Recording,” this song has and still remains at the top of the charts. Lissie’s powerful voice paired with the song’s playful “giddy up” beat will definitely have you humming and even singing along. Lyrics: If you are so frequently in love/If you prefer it all to me then my love/You go down the longest road to nowhere/You pull it apart and you’re just left there
3. Morgan Page – Fight For You (Sultan & Ned Shephard Mix) LINK on YouTube Another successful hit featuring Lissie, this song can speak to any one of us that have had to stand up for ourselves or stand up to a loved one. The chorus and the breaks promise heartfelt emotions that are believable even with it’s lyrics I’d fight for you/I never knew that I could feel this way/I’m right for you/This kinda love don’t happen everyday
4. Lal Meri – Bad Things (Morgan Page Radio Mix) LINK on YouTube With a lounge vibe and sultry vocals, the hypnotic beats of this song will have you feeling dangerously seductive. Lyrics: Look at all those bad things you made me do/I’ll Never Say I’m Sorry, I’ll Never Say it To You/Look at all those bad things you made me do/I could say I’m sorry but it wouldn’t be true
