Can’t Hold Us-Musical Monday

music copy

I have another Musical Monday post for you today because lately I have loved listening to music on the way home from work.  It seems like I have more time that usual as well because of all the traffic because of the horrible weather we are having.  Anyway this song is Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.  I pretty much love the CD that this song is on but I find that I am just putting this song on repeat while I am driving home because it makes me want to dance.  It also makes me forget that I am stuck in traffic.

Do you like this song?  What songs and/or music are you loving now?

Let Her Go by Passenger-Musical Monday

music copy

I haven’t done a musical Monday post for months and months but I have to post this song because I am listening to it on repeat all day long.  It is called Let Her Go by Passenger.

I am not sure what it is about this song that I love so much but I can’t stop listening to it.  I bought the whole album and I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed.  I am not a huge fan of the music videos but I do love his music.  I think I like it so much because he has a very different voice than anything I have heard in years so that always a good thing to me.

What songs are you loving this week?????  Leave them below because I am always on the lookout for great music.

One Random Song

Random Song

This week for the writers workshop #3 which is: Pick up your iPod or phone or whatever stores your music and press shuffle…what comes up first? Tell us about that song choice.  I have almost 2000 songs on my iPod so I went to a playlist that I listen to the most because it is a true mix of music and scrolled down and just picked on random song and the song that came up was: Lifestyles Of The Rich & Famous by Good Charlotte.

This song is super old because I believe I first heard it when I was in high school.   There isn’t much to really say about this song other than I still like it and love to listen to it when it gets played on my iPod.    The music video makes me laugh and let’s be honest there really isn’t much to the song so I am not sure why it has stuck with me so long but it has and I can’t get enough of songs like this.

What random song do you love?

***As a side note I googled when the song was released and it was in the fall of 2002 so that would have been my senior year of high school.

Musical Monday-Green Day

I haven’t posted a song on Mondays for a long time but I have wanted to post a song by Green Day and I figured that I would post it this week.  I am sure some of you know that I love music.  I literally always have music playing and I can’t ever get enough of it.  I listen to pretty much anything and the past few weeks I have been loving “Boulevard Of Broken Dreams” by Green Day.  This is my favorite part of the song:

I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don’t know where it goes
But it’s home to me and I walk alone

I walk this empty street
On the Boulevard of Broken Dreams
When the city sleeps
And I’m the only one and I walk alone

I love this song because the lyrics that I have listed up above is so how I feel a lot of the time.  I know that I am on the one responsible for the reasons I am alone.  Most days I am okay with this but there are days where it does get lonely and today is one of those days.

Roads

A few months back I wrote a post about the new Chris Mann album and  I have since fallen in love with the the song called Roads.  Below I have posted the lyrics &  the video so that you can see what I am talking about before I tell you why I love the song.

There are roads in this life that we all travel
There are scars and there are battles where we roam
When we are lost or wherever we may go
They will always lead you home

There are roads that have lead me to another
To a friend or to a lover I have known
For every turn is a year that I have grown
As I walk along these roads

Some are long and some are weathered
Some will lead you through a storm
When you’ve gone astray you will find your way
As you walk along these roads

There were times when I stumbled and I wondered
But every choice and every step I don’t regret
Cause I have lived and I have loved like no other
I won’t fear what lies ahead

Some are long and some are weathered
Some will lead you through a storm
When you’ve gone astray you will find your way
As you walk along these roads

There are roads in this life that I have traveled
There are scars and there are battles, these I know
Cause I’d be lost but no matter where I go
They will one day lead me home
They will one day lead me home

I am sure most of you know by now that I love music.  I always seem to find songs that fit perfectly into my life at the certain moment in time.  I received this CD in order for me to review it and I listened to it a few times and thought it was good but it ended up in my car and I didn’t listen it again up until last week.  When I randomly put in the CD while I was on my way home from work the title track just hit me differently than it did when I first heard it.  I really can’t even pick just one part of the song because I love everything the song says.

I have had a lot of personal things going on that I haven’t blogged about and I don’t think I will ever blog about and this song describes how I have been feeling lately about my life and where I see myself going.  I look at my life and I realize more than anything that this song is so true.

Since my daughters birthday this past July I have decided that I am going to go down a road that I have known I need to go down for awhile but I have been too scared to make the first step.  Now that I have been on this road for a few months I know without a doubt that this where I need to be and I finally happy with where I am at.   For the first time in years I can honestly say I am the happiest I  have been.  That being said there are things and people that I miss dearly but I know I am where I should be right now.

This is the verse that I keep reading over and over in my head.

There were times when I stumbled and I wondered
But every choice and every step I don’t regret
Cause I have lived and I have loved like no other
I won’t fear what lies ahead

I have learned that I will never regret and of the choices and decisions I have made because without all of them I wouldn’t be the person I am today.  I also am not going to live my life fearing the future because everything that happens is meant to be and will make me an even stronger person.
