Hold me, thrill me, kiss me

image

Hold me, hold me

Never let me go until you’ve
Told me, told me
What I want to know and then just
Hold me, hold me
Make me tell you,”I’m in love with you”

Thrill me, thrill me
Walk me down the lane where shadows
Will be, will be
Hiding lovers just the same as
We’ll be, we’ll be
When you make me tell you, “I love you”

They told me, “Be sensible with your new love
Don’t be fooled thinking this is the last you’ll find”
But they never stood in the dark with you love
When you take me in your arms and drive me slowly out of my mind

Kiss me, kiss me
And when you do I’ll know you that you will
Miss me, miss me
If we ever say ‘Adieu’, so
Kiss me, kiss me
Make me tell you, “I’m in love with you”

Kiss me, kiss me
And when you do I’ll know you that you will
Miss me, miss me
If we ever say ‘Adieu’, so
Kiss me, kiss me
Make me tell you, “I’m in love with you”

Never, never, never let me go
Never, never, never let me go
Never, never, never let me go

Hold Me, Thrill Me, Kiss Me ~ Mel Carter

Dog Days are Done by Florence and the Machine

#1.  This is a GREAT SONG!!!  It’s by Florence and the Machine.  I heard it while driving. 

That’s the only way I hear ‘new’ music nowadays

#2.  Weird, when I was a teenager,

I used to be the one who found stuff before anyone else, well,  a few elses.

It’s hard ‘growing up’.  Meaning, I can’t sit and listen to music all day.

It’s hard growing up, meaning,

I’m not really grown up, just in a different dimension.

Make sense?

THIS SONG kinda sums it up.

As I was listening to it I was thinking,

Damn them, for being so happy, not fair.

I wonder what it feels like?

And then I thought, what if I could make myself

and those around me happy?

I thought, what if I could decide to be happy?

and make this song come true?

What a dream, a beautiful, wonderful, perfect dream of HAPPY!!!

I hope you love it as much as I do.

The Beatles

One of my favorite groups of all time, The Beatles. I remember listening to all the albums that my mom got in her album of the month club and The Beatles albums were always my favorites played over & over & over again, and then, when I was about 11,  we went visit my older, hipper cousins and I heard Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band for the first time and it was nirvana.  I believe it was the soundtrack album from the movie of the same title.  I rushed out and bought that album and felt so cool.  As I’ve gotten older and especially now, I realize just how talented and beyond extraordinary The Beatles were.

I love pretty much every single one of their songs, but my 2 most favorite are Norwegian Wood, sung by John Lennon and While My Guitar Gently Weeps by George Harrison.

“While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song from their 1968 double album The Beatles (also known as “the White Album”). It was written by George Harrison and the recording includes a lead guitar part played by Eric Clapton.

“Norwegian Wood” was one of the first Western pop songs to feature the sitar, an Indian instrument.  John Lennon wrote it about an affair he was having on his wife, Cynthia, which to me was/is a pretty sh*tty thing to do, but my God, what a song!  I don’t think of singer or songwriter or reason for or what the song is about when I hear it, all I think of is another world, another place, another time, another universe called music.  It’s simply beautiful, breathtaking and bliss for my senses.

I’m posting some videos below with the original versions and some really fabulous cover versions, imho.

I hope you get swept away and lost in their magic as much as I did and always do when I listen to them.  I would also love to know some of your favorites by The Beatles!   Enjoy!

Led Zeppelin ~ Over the Hills and Far Away

One of my favorite bands and one of my favorite songs by them. I found out some interesting facts about the song also.  Robert Plant’s lyrics were inspired by the book The Hobbit!   too cool!

Enjoy!  🙂

@justagirllost2 

  • This evolved from the Yardbirds song “White Summer,” an acoustic solo by Jimmy Page. Many of the same riffs and chords are in it. After The Yardbirds broke up, Led Zeppelin continued to play “White Summer” live. >>
  • This was one of the few Led Zeppelin songs released as a single in the US. It made it only to #51.
  • The music was inspired by Jimmy Page’s Celtic ancestry.
  • This began as an instrumental. Robert Plant came up with backing tracks then lyrics.
  • Plant’s lyrics were inspired by the J.R.R. Tolkien book The Hobbit, and to Tolkein’s 1915 poem of the same name. “Over The Hills And Far Away” describes the adventure the Hobbits embark on.
  • Page and Plant started writing this in 1970 at Bron-yr-Aur, the cottage in Wales they went to after a grueling US tour. It had no electricity or running water.
  • There’s an old English song called “Over The Hills And Far Away” that dates back to the 18th century (It appears in John Gay’s play The Beggar’s Opera). This might be where the band got the title. >>
  • If you listen closely, you can hear an acoustic guitar playing throughout the song.

Hallelujah

A song I recently rediscovered

and my God, what a song…

I can’t believe I had to rediscover this piece of divinity by the late Leonard Cohen

I cannot critique it as a musician would, I am not a musician

I’m simply a lover of music

I am a lover of sound

Every thing in the universe hums with life

Every heart beating sings a note in our cosmic symphony

I love going outside, late night, after a rain when all of creation is alive, singing, vibrating, trilling, humming, brimming, thrilling, screaming, whispering, screeching, sighing, shouting out to the sky

I love sound

I love music

Such a sensual gift, is music!

I cannot tell you why I love the music I love, I can only tell you I love it and ask that you listen and hope that you love it too and in loving it too you will somehow know why I love it also

I do not know how anyone cannot believe in magic and miracles after listening to this…
