I’d fight with fire just to get close to you…
those dark, delirious
My wants relentless
of desire ~ love ~ lust
they pulse pizzicato,
flowing thru me,
Vibrating my being
sighing touching tasting streaming
My thoughts never stop
searching for yours
My lips never stop
throbbing for a taste,
a lingering lick
of your skin
My body never stops
burning to feel your lips
And though life is often insane
in its chaos
it never drives me to distraction
Only you commit that crime
Though I get lost, overwhelmed
and cannot find the strength to fight
Knowing you breathe and exist
Knowing you live in my world
Knowing who you are is my forever breath of life
You are my muse

… and my feelings never wane 🍃
So, I’m watching
The Magnificent Seven
(original version, thank you, very much)
I hear the soundtrack.
The soundtrack is vibrant, strong, beautiful.
The soundtrack is westerny, tough, and jagged.
The music was nominated for an Academy award.
It’s a fabulous score.
It’s a wonderful movie.
So, as I’m watching and listening I notice a certain part of the score sounds EXACTLY like something I’ve heard in LoTR: The Two Towers.
Listen to each one.
#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.
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.
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!
and… one more just for FUN!! 💕 💕
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!
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.
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.
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…
