Random Music Moment #145

I have been obsessed with epic music lately.  I’m not sure why, but I guess this one has been striking the heart profoundly lately!  Called Never Surrender by Phantom Power Music, for some things I just don’t want to give up.  And lately, that’s two things.  One is the direction of my career, and the other, well 😉 that remains to be seen.

Enjoy today’s Random Music Moment!  (I intend to not let the weather get to me either–with it being absolutely freezing and wet, completely dampening my days and making me want to stay in bed all day which I can’t because there’s just so much to do sometimes!)

Random Music Moment #106

I don’t know where this song happened to wiggle into mind for the first time in how many years.  I don’t know if it was on the train, in the shops, from the tv, but it was somewhere, and yet, I’m glad I can hear playing again and again in my head with lyrics that don’t make sense and a tune that’s unforgettable, because it’s nostalgic, a song from my childhood, which gives me plenty of pleasant careful days lol!
SO actually the song lyrics are good, narrative and rhythmic, but every time I hear the song, and every time it’s in my head, somehow the lyrics get all jumbled up.  I can safely say though, that the main part of the chorus and the title of the song, goes unchanged in my head…plus the tune.  I can’t forget that tune!

Blast from the past, please enjoy today’s random music moment: Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer.

 

Random Music Moment #105

One of my all time favourite bands.  One of my all time favourite songs.

Random Music Moment #104

There’s something about this song that I like.  There’s something about it that gets itself stuck in my head.  Whatever is, I have yet to discover.  Please enjoy today’s Random Music Moment Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men.

Lyrics That Must Be Sung.

The lyrics that spring into my head,

At a moment that has passed,

The rhythm and the rhyme,

Sing one line after line,

In my head,

Through the cracks, they sing,

Let me lay in your arms

Even for just a moment

I want to feel the love,

The hope,

The pain

I want to feel it all…

Let me lay in your arms

And I sing these words in my head,

Feel their pain,

Waiting on the sidelines,

For a voice to sing,

Out loud the words that I have written,

With my heart and soul,

Waiting for that something,

To fill that empty hole.

I feel it in my soul,

That words that I am singing

I can’t change the future,”

I can’t change the past,

But when we are together,

There is only love,

Hope,

Pain.”

I hear a voice singing,

The song that I wrote,

On the telly,

The radio,

From the headphone’s

Of the person sitting next to me.

There is no stopping,

The lyrics that are sung,

The need to be sung,

Brought to life,

By the man,

With the jelly low tone,

As sticky and as sweet as tree sap,

And as beautiful as the tremors of the earth.

I am enticed by the beauty of your form,

Let me savour you in my arms,

Hold you tight,

Squeeze you to death,

Because all I want to hear,

Is the sweet sound of your

Honey coated voice.

It is the song that is one of many,

Of voices combined,

And lyrics sung,

With all their might,

The Lyrics must be sung,

Whatever the song,

Whenever the place,

Until the voices run hoarse,

Completely enthralled by the voice,

And by the lyrics they have sung.

Random Music Moment #100

You know I was surprised to learn about this song when I was watching X-factor Australia.  I’ve heard it so many times, and it’s been out for so long, I never realised that it was Adele’s song.  I guess I was just surprised because it’s a completely different tone to her other songs like Rollin’ In The Deep, Someone Like You and Set Fire To The Rain.

Today’s Random Music Moment is Rumour Has It by Adele

And Adira Belle doing a rendition for their audition for X-factor Australia know how to make it sexyyyyy!  Haha, I loved their performance!

Random Music Moment #99

I like Wolfmother, it’s one of my favourite bands along with the fact that it’s an Australian rock band.  I love their music, especially their first album.  Though, I wonder what it is that I like about it?  I mean, sure it’s rock, sure they have great sounding music, but it’s just like any other rock band out there.  Since I can’t figure that, I figured, I’d just go with ‘one of my all faves’.

And along with one of my all faves, in their first album ‘Wolfmother’, is that song “Apple Tree”.  I love listening to it, but it took me a while to realise that there are only two paragraphs that are constantly repeated as the lyrics, example:

Dear Sir, can you remember me,
Have a look inside the family tree
Dear Sir, can you remember me
Have a look inside the family tree

Your daughter is so fine to see,
Unraveled some mystery in me,
When i see the apple in disguise,
Ohh my love i can recognize,

So I keep hearing this song while I’m randomly flicking through the channels.  It’s taken me ages to finally pinpoint the ad and therefore the song, it’s great!  Well I enjoy it, and I think it’s gentle and calming.  Welllll please enjoy today’s RMM Riverside by Agnes Obel.

Random Music Moment #95

I’m hitting the final last few days of the exam period and I don’t know, yesterday out of nowhere I suddenly felt incredibly depressed.  It’s completely unusual for me, firstly, and secondly, I didn’t even realise it until something attacked me, and I became aware of the feelings that had been swirling in my head!  It was kind of scary.  I spent the whole night trying to organise those scary thoughts in my head…then I realised I had no idea why I was feeling so dark…so I started listening to music…and you know!  Music has that nostalgicness to it that sometimes I really hate, but others love!  I listened to the music I listened to in highschool, and I listened to this one, ahhhh nostalgic haha.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did since it had that amazing effect of calming down :P… which yesterday it certainly drew me out of my strangely strange day!  Today’s Random Music Moment, Kiss the Rain by Yiruma.

 

Random Music Moment #94

Another piano piece by Yiruma!  More music that gets into my head and continues playing, completely enticing me…please enjoy today’s RMM Sunny Rain by Yiruma.

Random Music Moment #93

I just heard this song last night when it was performed on the grand final of the Voice Australia.  Of course, I still don’t know who won since I switched midway to watch Revenge…which is has been annoying me for some time because it’s getting to that ridiculous stage where I really hate the new villain!  Also…it looks like my favourite couple Emily Thorn/Amanda Clark and Aiden Mathis are losing the relationship that I got excited about this season…they were probably the only reason why I continued to watch it even after the introduction of ‘The Initiative’ which I find VERY annoying…but whatever…anyway!  So I heard this song, and turns out, I really like it.  Also, I didn’t realise the singer was One Republic either… -.-|| haha, but whatever!

My reasons for liking this song fall in line with a) I just love the sound, his voice and the music overall and b) the lyrics.

I see this life
Like a swinging vine
Swing my heart across the line
In my face is flashing signs
Seek it out and ye shall find
Old, but I’m not that old
Young, but I’m not that bold
And I don’t think the world is sold
I’m just doing what we’re told

I feel something so right
At doing the wrong thing
I feel something so wrong
At doing the right thing
I could lie, could lie, could lie
Everything that kills me makes me feel alive

Full Lyrics HERE

This feels like the kind of song I could listen to again and again and not find it annoying after awhile.   But I dunno, I think the video is, um…interesting?  Lol, anyway please enjoy today’s Random Music Moment: Counting Stars by OneRepublic

Random Music Moment #92

This is one of my old favourites, a song that I think has strange lyrics, yet, I really love the way it sounds.  Is that strange?  Ever since I started posting RMM’s I’ve become more and more aware of the lyrics of songs and I’m always surprised when I read them.  Especially when they are so different to the way they sound!

Feasting on sleeping pills
and Marlboro Reds.
(so busy won’t save you)

Oh how our parents
they suffered for nothing
Live the dream, live the dream, live the dream
Like the 80s never happened.
People are afraid, are afraid
To merge on the freeway.
Disappear here

Stroll the pier
into the magazine launch party.
I am handed a pill,
and I swallow with complete disdain.
Kick-drum bangs off the high-hat;
Remember to look bored.
We suck each others’ faces,
and make sure we are noticed.

(Cocaine won’t save you)
Because East London is a vampire,
it sucks the joy right out of me
How we long for corruption in these golden years.

 

Today’s Random Music Moment : Song for Clay by Bloc Party

Random Music Moment #91

What to say?  What to say?  Guess after hearing MaNga at Eurovision 2010, I did get interested in knowing what other songs they’d released.  And well, found this one!  I think the dancing pretty sharp in this, and I do like the song.

The lyrics are…interesting…

You’ve fallen right out of the sky
I could swear you’re a natural high
Volcanoes erupting inside…
When I see the sparkle in your eyes
But you don’t even realize…
Cause you’ve been hurt so many times
They play with your heart, told you lies
Thes were wrong all along, you were right.
Lyrics from eLyrics.net

 

And well I like it, so enjoy?! Today’s RMM is Fly To Stay Alive by maNga

Random Music Moment #89

So I didn’t realise Celia Pavey sang this on the Voice Australia weeks ago so I didn’t realise it was the same song.  When I posted about the original song (Click Here) it didn’t really occur to me it was the song since I think I was trying to erase all the Twilight pictures from my head.  But just now I found it again…turns out Celia Pavey sang it as part of the Battle rounds…and honestly I love her voice!  I love the tone and I think it’s beautiful except the slight screw up during her blind audition.  I think she could win this year!  And if she does – I’d listen to her sing.  So enjoy today’s Random Music Moment – Celia Pavey (the girl on the right) singing A Thousand Years during the Voice battle rounds!

Random Music Moment #86

Okay I didn’t think I would do another Nightcore genre song, but I thought this one was good haha, it actually does a decent rendition (guess I can’t really call it a rendition if the music’s just wrenched up an octave or so and the speed was sped up a bit, can I?) well, yeah….anyway, I think  this makes the song creepier than it already was, especially with these kinds of lyrics.

Got a secret
Can you keep it?
Swear this one you’ll save
Better lock it in your pocket
Taking this one to the grave
If I show you then I know you won’t tell what I said
‘Cause two can keep a secret if one of them is dead

Full Lyrics HERE

But the Nightcore version just makes it even creepier I think!  I think despite the fact that the Nightcore genre is simply just changing pitch (and giving the singers chipmunk voices :P) and the speed, I think that it’s another way to promote a song in the sense that hey! This sounds cool, what did the original sound like?  Or maybe I’m just one of those people who like to find out the original song and No way! Check it out! LOL.  Yeah lol.

This version of The Pierces “Secret” totally made me check out the original.  So please enjoy (or not…since it is higher pitched and Nightcore…) today’s RMM and the Original (below the Nightcore version)!

Random Music Moment #85

What songs get stuck in you head?  Annoying songs, good songs, songs that blow your mind?  Wellllll this was stuck in my head for a bit, and I mean, I keep hearing about this song, and hearing about this song, and hearing about this song.  It wasn’t until the other day that I decided to actually take the time to listen to it, oh do dare mention that I was procrastinating…again?  It’s come to my attention that if I were to describe the every day uni student I would probably say…hard worker at work, or lazy…, working and studying, social, oh and the most important one…procrastinatorsssss.  Well I don’t work yet, but I’m hard-fast becoming a procrastinator!

Anyway so asides from the reason above, I forget the other reason why I wanted to check this song out.  I think it had something to do with its genre anyway, it was a nice surprise!  I really, have come, to the point where I might actually listen to more by Owl City.  Please enjoy today’s Random Music Moment: Fireflies by Owl City…!

Random Music Moment #83

So let’s go for a change of pace, in the context of the final assignments what better than a motivation for clear minds and increased thought processing?  It’s well known that classical music is good for listening to while working.  And I can say it gives me a rhythm and something to enjoy, but then again, I might get completely drawn in and forget my work :P.  Today’s random music moment is one of my favourite songs, even though it’s not classical, it’s still amazing *O*.  An old favourite River Flows In You by Yiruma.

 

Random Music Moment #81

Now that Eurovision is over, I find it hard to think of anything but because the music is still in my head, especially this song!  I love that it’s a little different to the top three songs, and I love that it came 4th out of 26.  What’s more I love that it’s electronic/electro pop.  I feel it’s pretty catchy;

Now I can see
The whole world is mine
I can touch and feel
I feed you my love

You put a knife against my back
And you dare me to face the attack
You say, “For cowards there’s no reward”
Feel the heat

Full lyrics HERE

…and I love her vocals.  I really love the way she sings “Now I can see/the whole world is mine/ I can touch and feel/ I feed you my love”.  There’s just this really nice tone to it that distracts me from finalising my assignments but! I’m almost done with uni and I’m excited!!! Haha, soooooo please enjoy today’s random music moment, sung by the lovely Margaret Berger for Norway during the Eurovision this year, “I feed you my love”.

 

Random Music Moment #77

So so so I’ve missed a day or two of Random Music Moments and I am really sorry.  I will say firstly, it’s uni, uni, uni.  Secondly, I really had no idea what I was going to post now that the first semi of Eurovision has passed (Tuesday 14th) which I won’t see until tomorrow night (Friday 17th) and I didn’t want to post anything until I did watch the semi.  BUT, as life would have it, I cannot resist.  I have the need to post another.  So, unfortunately, I am behind, and unfortunately in front, I can’t see anyway I can balance out my absolute desire to watch the semi right now.  But I won’t.  I’m going to stick to it, and wait it out!  I’m so bloody excited, one more day.  One more day until it starts for me and any other fans of Eurovision here down under!!!

 

Sooooo today’s Random Music Moment is in honour of all the past winners of Eurovision.  Yes, I know I’ve posted the winners from the last ten or so years, but this time, this is every winner from every Eurovision since it first began in 1956.  Please enjoy!

Random Music Moment #75

So, following such a simple stage performance and winning song such as Lena’s Satellite from Germany, I wondered who could possibly win.  We’d already had something exotic (Greece 2005), something scary (Finland 2006), something big-voiced (Serbia 2007),  something beautiful (Russia 2008), something fantasy (Norway 2009), and something simple (Germany 2010), so who could possibly be next?

Now I’ll say it, because I’ve always believed, I like Azerbaijan’s performances.  I do think their song choices are excellent   But the winner of the 2011 Eurovision song contest certainly surprised me.  Actually overall, it was very hard for me to pick a possible winner that year, there were so many songs I’d put on the same level, and not really any that stood out to me.  Except well, Azerbaijan stood out because of the beautiful stage presence.  They do look very pretty up there on stage.
