Song of the Week: Flight

I was very recently introduced to Lifehouse. I mean, I’m sure I’ve heard them in passing somewhere along the line but a friend sent me a few songs to listen to this week and I liked them.¬†As I’ve said before … I’m a lyric person. I enjoy words. And that is usually what will draw me to a song first, the words, the message, the meaning, the way it makes me feel when I say the words out lout. It’s how I connect with the song and if it is a song I am performing, how I am able to immerse myself into it for my audience.

I have discovered some fantastic (IMHO) words in the songs of Lifehouse. And this song is one of them.

“I’ve lost my balance. I fell from the trapeze. This act isn’t easy. I’ve been under water, the storm has been raging. These nights are not sleeping, my dreams are now strangers to me.”

A lot of what this song is saying really hit home with the year I’ve had.

“I’ve been walking in circles, I’m screaming for answers. I might fall into pieces or maybe I’m finally breaking through.”

So it is my Song of the Week this week. I hope you enjoy it.

 

 

Jingle This Jingler

This week’s Song Of The Week is an attempt to curtail the Seasonal Affective Disorder that is trying like hell to take over my being.

I adore Barenaked Ladies for their amazing musical talent and their hysterical sense of humor. Their version of Jingle Bells is my favorite of all time. If it doesn’t bring a smile to your face, you are unsaveable. Sorry ’bout your luck.
