Song of the Month

It’s that time of the month…song of the month!

Incidentally, this song happens to follow on from my latest post. I’ve become a big fan of the rock band Halestorm and although I love all their songs, I wanted to share and reflect on this song. It talks about the importance of just being yourself, and for no one else. Listen to the lyrics, and maybe you can relate to it too. Enjoy!

Song of the Month

I came up with an idea of how to better stick to my posts, even when I’m busy. I decided that once a month, I will post a song which has caught my ears most and which I’d like to relate to. This is a song which I will post on the ‘fifth’ of the month. No real reason why the 5th to be honest, just a number I think I’ll remember best!

This is a song by Jose Gonzalez. Whenever I listen to this song, I am reminded that life is too short, and we should always remember to be free and learn to let go…

I hope you enjoy my song of the month 🙂

 

 

Broken Strings

Why did I choose to blog? To express, to document and in this case…to bring me back to base. Its been a weird couple of days where things didn’t turn out right, and you start doubting yourself, thinking if you need more confidence in everything else.

As I sat on the floor with my back against the radiator (which felt particularly nice on a chilly day outside!), I went on the computer and typed in a movie soundtrack from the legendary Hans Zimmer, from the film Thelma and LouiseThough I had only seen bits of it from so long ago, I kid you not I have it running on Now TV, right now! The song is played by one of my boyfriend’s heroes, guitarist Guthrie Govan. It’s a beautiful song, but watch what happens half way through, it’s every guitarist’s worst nightmare…

I believe that music maybe one of the best things that’s happened to humanity. It can connect people all around the world, and let them feel the same feelings. However, sometimes you can watch a clip more than once, and you feel something different each time you watch it.  When I first watched this clip today, I cried a little, which I don’t usually. I don’t really know why I did, but the emotions I felt on this occasion were very different from the last time I watched it, yet all still very real to me. When I did watch it,  I tried to compare it to the situation I was in. If he could pull through this mishap and come out shining more so towards the end, then maybe I can too?
