RUDE

Has this ever happened to you? You know, that horrible moment when you find a song that you just LOVE so you keep on playing it all day, every day on repeat and you choose not to stop this travesty until you begin to despise the song? Well, that’s what is happening to me right now.

I rarely every think that it is in my interest to turn on the radio to listen (even though I have a blog about music so this is kind of a bad practice). On Saturday though I decided that it was time to let a little radio listening into my life… and then I heard the song that would inevitably change my life (okay may just my day…and week). Rude by Magic! is a new song that has a reggae infused beat. No only do I love the beat (because I love reggae and all), but the lead singers voice (I do not know his name) is just so beautiful that I feel in love on sight. I mean, I watched the video and I really did feel his pain. The song is so catchy and entertaining that even though you get the point, you feel that all will be okay for him in the end because hes still happy despite some fatherly rejection….AND I NEVER SAID WHAT THE SONG WAS ABOUT SO. In short summary terms, the song is about a hipster musician that wants to marry this girl from a conservative, middle class, (presumably Republican) family. Due to his non ivy-league ways, the father feels that he should not marry his daughter even though it appears that they are both truly in love. In the end, love prevails and they appear to marry without the fathers acceptance or consent (I don’t think that this can end well though). But it is a great concept for a song and I love it. All I wonder now is if this whole scenario has any truth for the members of this band…or are they just playing with us? Hmm.

 

Turning Page

Hi everyone, sorry for the lack of blog posting that has happened this year. Basically, I’m at a point where school, work, and life has faltered my desire to blog every week ( although I do often think about it). Anyways, you’re lucky today, because I have another song review for…you!

Turning Page is a song by Sleeping At Last. This song was on the Twilight:Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack. Now anyone that knows me should know that I know everything and probably still do have Β a slight obsession with it, but right now thats besides the point.

This song was featured in the film when Bella was walking down the isle to marry Edward. (remember that scene, with all of the flowers and lights hanging from the ceiling? Of course you do.) This is absolutely one of the most beautiful wedding/love songs I have ever heard. Its basically all of the vows a guy never wants to say put into a beautiful song so that he really never has to say them beacuse they have already been said for him because thats exactly what he was thinking. So, listen to this song, don’t cry or get emotional ( or do if you’re in that mood), and dont steal these lyrics for your wedding vows. Enjoy.

Let Her Go

This is one of the prettiest songs I have ever heard. It’s almost like he’s singing a poem that he wrote. Passenger’s voice is so soft and calming that it makes the song even more perfect. This song is about a guy that basically uses metaphors to describe how it feels to realize that he let go of the love of his life. This song is kind of a repetitive theme in love songs, but it is executed in a way that is kind of different and unique. Plus over 250,000,000 youtube views on this video is kind of impressive.
