Chandelier

Now, I know that me blogging about this song might seem a bit strange since this song was released so long ago, but I just heard this song for the first time about 4 weeks ago. A camper played this song and did a re-enactment of the creative movement in the music video and from that I began to listen to/ enjoy this song.

Chandelier is a song by Sia. While this song is such a creative piece, lyrically and vocally, to begin with, it is also has such a strange yet intriguing music video to go along with it. The music video does really make you think and deeply interpret the movement in terms of how it goes along with the lyrics of the song. I really did enjoy this song but loved the music video a lot more. This has definitely brought back my love for Sia and her music.

Free

This semester is almost over! Yes! I am finishing up my second year of university and I could not be more excited. It feels like I have been in university for almost 5 years when it really has only been 2. I feel FREE.

…And Free is the title of the song I am going to be writing about today since it is so ever relevant to my life right now. This song is by Rudimental featuring Emeli Sande. She is amazing so you can already guess that this song is probably amazing.

I was doing my typical Friday night fun thing last week, which basically consists of me indulging in another episode of Girlfriends Guide To Divorce (if you liked Sex and the City you really should watch this show). At the end of the last episode, I heard this beautiful, moving and captivating song. I just loved it. So I did what any music obsessed person would do when they hear a song that they love…hunt for the name on google.

I eventually did find it and because I loved it so much I did pay that $1.29 for it on iTunes. This song kind of reminds me of Sia’s Breathe Me, which is a song that I hold very close to my heart.  The video is also moving as well as was extremely well done. Anyways, I did enjoy the song and I really do like it. I hope that it sparks your interest to!

Breathe Me

This is probably going to be the deepest blog post I have ever written. I remember in Grade 5 when I first heard this song, and I had to excuse myself to go to the washroom and cry because every word of this song was so…relevant, true, relatable. It was the first time in my life that I had heard my life in words; it was the first time that I had every lived my life out through song. I really didn’t know how to feel. I think that this was the first time that I learnt that I could experience profound feelings through the music and that I could relate to music because not all songs were by the Spice Girls or Britney Spears. I had been bullied for many years of my elementary school life. I wasn’t thin, I wasn’t pretty, I wasn’t tall, I wasn’t rich…I wasn’t “It”. I was alone. Every time that I listen to this song till this day, I remember being pushed and kicked down the hill from my bully because I wasn’t “good enough”. I remember sitting in the far corner of the field alone because no one wanted to play with me. I remember sitting in a puddle of coca cola and soaking my pants just so that I would be accepted into a friendship group even if only for a minute. Most profoundly, I remember being…alone.
