Like 4-3-2

I’ve been thinking about this song a lot. The melody. The message. The feeling. The acoustics. It flows perfectly, one of those songs that doesn’t need explaining. Please take a listen whenever you’re feeling glum and I promise you will feel an instant lift. 🙂

“If you’re tossin’ and you’re turnin’ and you just can’t fall asleep, I’ll sing a song beside you.”

“And if you ever forget how much you really mean to me, everyday I will remind you.”

I hope all my friends know this. I do not tell them how much I love them all as often as I should. So here it is! 😀


“And I’ve, I’ve Never Been So Alive”

Dedicated to high school musicians everywhere.

I’ve been in a choir every year since fourth grade. Music was always around, and I was always involved. It felt like home to me.

Penn State York burned a bit of my fire when I found out it didn’t offer any musical classes. Transferring and leaving all the musical surroundings of Memphis was one of the most difficult things I ever had to do. I sometimes regret it and feel that I left much of my musical muses in there… I felt free in Memphis. I was my master. Continue reading

Bruno’s Voice = love

Dedicated to his voice.

The only thing I knew about Bruno Mars was that he is featured in B.o.b.’s song “Nothing On You”. I liked his voice from the start, but today I discovered much more.

I guess the fact that I do not watch MTv or VH1 contributes to my lack of “popular” musical knowledge, therefore, I had no idea Mars was also featured in Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” song. Oh, Mars also plays guitar. 🙂 Continue reading

Lyrics of the Week – Week 41

Dedicated to nature.

“Nature” by India Arie

I know
Oh, Oh Yeah

Hey baby
Why you rushing
Let’s sit back and watch the flowers grow
Why you want
To swim against the tide
Let’s lay and watch the river flow

Do you ever wonder why this music gets you high?

Dedicated to explosions, stars.

To be high is an interesting concept. The brain is interrupted by extreme physical, emotional and mental sensations. Everything feels better. “(It) takes you on a ride.”

There are tons of songs that get me high. The feeling is almost indescribable… Sometimes, I must move, I must dance. I have no control. Other times, most of my internal organs feel like they’re about to explode. However, the blended high is the supreme goal. Not every (high) song makes me want to dance. Not every (high) song makes my heart race. But when the two emotions meet, men cry! Continue reading

One Year Later: I don’t want to think about…

Dedicated to you.

I don’t want to think about how you’re not here. I don’t want to think about how it’s been the roughest year of my life. I don’t want to think about how I haven’t had a dream about you in months. I don’t want to think about how amazing you make me feel when you sing. I don’t want to think about how awful I felt the day you died. I don’t want to think about how I think you’re my someone in the dark. I don’t want to think about how I survived this year. Continue reading

Lyrics of the Week – Week 40

Dedicated to Chase Hafer. This is his favorite band.

“How’s It Going To Be” by Third Eye Blind

I’m only pretty sure that I can’t take anymore
Before you take a swing, I wonder what are we fighting for?
When I say out loud, “I want to get out of this,”
I wonder, is there anything I’m going to miss?

I wonder how it’s going to be
when you don’t know me.
How’s it going to be
when you’re sure I’m not there? Continue reading
