Today I did not plan to post until later. But I realised something. I haven’t posted a random music moment in a while! It seems my head has been filled with THESIS is EVERYTHING and TEACHING is TIME CONSUMING conceptual metaphors and all their variations. I’m also still writing, working on my writing project, and it’s getting there. Everything is getting there, but not yet, and it’s taking over my mind each part claiming and warring between each other for attention.
So I was a little bit surprised when this morning – even though I was in a rush, it seems these days being in a rush is the norm and having plenty of time a desired norm, is this normal to being an adult? (Puzzles the girl who has just started really appreciating her newly found lifestyle of study, work, and something she calls ‘leisure time’ which is just more work but fun work!) – I stopped and looked outside and felt the tinkle and rhythm of a tune in my head. It’s been so long since I could put a song to a scene or moment, I just felt somewhat calm. Somewhat relieved and relaxed by this moment. Odd. Yet not so odd, the sky was whitewashed with clouds with patches of blue, but that feeling was there – the feeling and premonition knowledge that today is going to be a good, warm, sunny day. Today, it’s going to be a beautiful day.
Have you guessed it yet?
Today’s random music moment is Beautiful Day by U2.
P.s. I’m writing this on my phone, so I’m not sure how the format will come out!
This is positively awful! I abhor this piece of music! (Scuse my language, I’ve been reading a book set in the Victorian Era).
But jokes aside, I do dislike (not really, I love it too much to hate it, then again I love it so much I hate it?) this piece of fabulous music to a certain degree because I found it while I was looking for study music to study with! Instead, I became captivated with this song, and wanted nothing more than to share it!
There something very hauntingly epic about this, and while it did little to egg me on in concentration, it did steal my attention and hold me captive for the duration of the song.
Blood Red Roses by C21 FX
This is well and truly a very random music moment. First off, MERRY CHRISTMAS (or HAPPY HOLIDAYS to those who don’t celebrate christmas–though I don’t really celebrate Christmas in the traditional sense, rather Christmas to me is about family getting together and having a good time (sorry big man, you weren’t in the forefront of my mind)). I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, and if not, were out enjoying the boxing day sales/sales after christmas the day/s after. I celebrated christmas with the classic family bbq!
Second, I went and saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens last week and am now in SUCH a spin, I can’t even get it out of my head. To be honest, I really want to go see it again, even though I felt like there were so many things shoved into it, and there were so many unanswered questions, and I LOVED IT. I can’t wait until the next one comes out, and pray so hard that it’ll be soon! (Though I think it’s set for end of 2016, start of 2017 or something?)
Third, today’s random music moment. I caught it while they were playing on the Morning Show (I think that’s right since it’s a little late in the day for it to be Sunrise lol). I don’t know what it is about this song, but I loved it the instant I heard it. So here, to you, I share with you this random music moment! Enjoy!
Roads by Lawson
Whoa….They changed the style of wordpress again since the last time I was on here. Ugh. Again, I am so sorry for disappearing. I have been at uni, working on my thesis (WHICH btw is going at a snail’s pace, I’m working on my intro–not the best place to start, but a place–and I’m only up 500 words of well, I won’t lie, but rubbish. I’m not happy with it, but at least I’m trying. If I can write something than the second draft will be clearer), working on my writing project for the Nanowrimo (really wanted to write this, but also involves so much research), and trying my best to keep up reading (I really want to read right now, and I’m making the best use of this desire as much as possible!)
However, I am here, for now! You know, I hope, that I would never abandon my readers. I’ve never liked the idea of starting something and then not finishing. My blog is here to stay and unless I plan to close up shop, I’ll be here.
And now down to business!
Today’s random music moment is actually a song I’d heard a while back. I meant to blog about it earlier but of course, since I had no time, I didn’t. However, I do really like this artist. Not only is she Australian, she’s really young, and I think, if she works really hard, she can be the next Jessica Mauboy. I hope so, she has a nice quality to her voice! Plus I like her newest single. I think this kind of style really suits her. (But really, my favourite performance from her was last year when she performed Titanium.)
Forever Young by Marlisa.
And her performance of Titanium last year:
I think it’s obvious why I chose this song today—it’s been stuck in my head! It’s only stuck there because it’s on a cancer council ad calling for a girls night out to help raise money for the cause; a very admirable cause indeed. I love the light feeling of the lyrics–I like the happy images that come into my head. I’ve always been one to believe in being friends forever regardless of the highs or lows, or when we see each other.
And as we all know I know nothing about the technicalities of music, but, well, I just really love how the tone (?) seems to rise as the song goes on, so becomes more and more powerful, and well, for me, the feelings just really swell up and I kind of wish I played this song on my graduation day a few months back!
Today’s random music moment is: Graduation Song by Vitamin C
Today’s random music moment is from one of my favourite Australian Artists! Even though I don’t regularly listen to her, I remember the year she came runner up in Australian Idol, and over the years, I can’t help but say ‘she’s doing astonishingly well for herself’. In many ways she inspires me, not to be a singer of course (because who knows how terrible my singing has gotten since I stopped doing school choir back in primary school), but to build my own career and to chase my dreams. The hardest thing is chasing dreams, but watching her journey from that small Alice Springs girl auditioning for Australian Idol to seeing her at Eurovision and on X-Factor, just a super Australian Star, it’s VERY inspiring. I love her just for that, and therefore, today’s random music moment is This Ain’t Love by Jessica Mauboy. It’s a pretty catchy song, and I love how she sings the chorus. I kept hearing it on tv for ages, but it wasn’t until she performed as a guest star on x-factor did I realise it was a Jessica Mauboy song!!! (It’s also the theme song for the Quantico drama promo down here.)
I’m so sorry for disappearing again!! This week has been hectic, and until the Friday coming, I will be awol again! That’s the first reason for my lack of post in the last few days. My other reason is that I’ve been wanting so badly to blog about this particular song from a particular tv ad, which admittedly, when I first saw the ad, I did not make a note of what it was advertising, hence why I had to wait until I caught the ad again in order to know what to look up! But lucky me! Today I happen to catch it right on time. And I never expected it to be a Subway ad…still, the song caught my attention, and I like the upbeat, proactive, sunny kind of feeling I get from the song! (Unfortunately, it won’t be getting me to buy subway anytime soon, but I sure don’t mind listening to the song again.)
Today’s Random Music Moment is It’s a Beautiful Day by Tim Morrison–Enjoy!
