My fave song right now!

Hey all, just coming up for air to share my favorite song at the moment. I think I’m a Francophil at heart, at least linguistically wise, since my short stint at the country wasn’t a successful one. But technically, this song is by a Canadian, so nevermind France. I guess I’m a sucker for Canadian bacon marinated in French. Does that make sense? Not at all. Just enjoy the video!

 

Video Games (song)

Currently hooked on this song by American singer-songwriter Lana del Rey (Elizabeth Grant). The song sounds like it has elements from Florence + The Machine’s Cosmic Love, but still a solid song about failed relationship(s).

 

Thieves (song)

I am starting my own little version of Music Monday. I’ll post a video of a song I really like each Monday to get a good start of the week and maybe give you some musical inspiration. Let me know if you have any song suggestions 🙂

Today’s feature is the song Thieves by She & Him, and indie band that consists of fab actress Zooey Deschanel and Matthew Steven Ward. What do you think?

 

Trying to fall asleep… more fun to listen to Lissie

My mood

It started with a low light

Next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed

And then they took my blood type

They left a strange impression in my head

You know that I was hoping

That I could leave this star-crossed world behind

But when they cut me open

I guess I changed my mind

And you know I might

Have just flown too far from the floor this time

‘Cause they’re calling me by my name

And they’re zipping white light beams

Disregarding bombs and satellites

That was the turning point

That was one lonely night

The song maker says it ain’t so bad

The dream maker’s gonna make you mad

The spaceman says, “Everybody look down

It’s all in your mind”

Well, now I’m back at home and

I’m looking forward to this life I live

You know it’s gonna haunt me

So hesitation to this life I give

You think you might cross over

You’re caught between the devil and the deep blue sea

You better look it over

Before you make that leap

And you know I’m fine

But I hear those voices at night

Sometimes they justify my claim

And the public don’t dwell on my transmission

‘Cause it wasn’t televised

But it was the turning point

O what a lonely night

The song maker says it ain’t so bad

The dream maker’s gonna make you mad

The spaceman says, “Everybody look down

It’s all in your mind”

The song maker says it ain’t so bad

The dream maker’s gonna make you mad

The spaceman says, “Everybody look down

It’s all in your mind”

My global position systems are vocally addressed

They say the Nile used to run from East to West

They say the Nile used to run from East to West

I’m fine

But I hear those voices at night

Sometimes

The song maker says it ain’t so bad

The dream maker’s gonna make you mad

The spaceman says, “Everybody look down

It’s all in your mind”

The song maker says it ain’t so bad

The dream maker’s gonna make you mad

The spaceman says, “Everybody look down

It’s all in your mind”

It’s all in my mind

It’s all in my mind

Cute alert!

Just because sometimes we need to see a cute critter to make us smile and get going with our day. Look at that creature!!!!!



Cosmic Love

A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it’s left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then, it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I’m always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart
