Day 03 - Song that makes you happy

Hmmm, this was actually a hard one. I feel that having music available makes me happy about life, but I tend to prefer the more melancholy music for some reason.
But I did find one....Collapse )

I may add more if more strikes me in this category!

Day 02 - Your least favourite song

Day two isn't quite as fun because - who wants to dwell on a least favorite song???

But, I get to rant a bit, too!

The song I hate, can't stand, makes me nauseous is...

Warning, it's a song and band people seem to love but I don't!!!!Collapse )

Saddest Song Ever

Hollie Smith - "Fallen Flowers"

...
If I could roll back the years
If I could see through these tears
If I could face all of my fears

And, if I could live my life again
If I could call the world my friend
If I could write the story's end...I would

I'd live a thousand years of pain
Just to hold you once...again.
It's funny that I have my complete music playlist of over 4000 songs on shuffle right now and every single song is so fitting. How can that be? I have a lot of happy tunes, I swear. o_0


Melanie C - "Ga Ga"
Carlene Carter - "Long Hard Fall"
Roxette - "It Must've Been Love (But It's Over Now)"
Fauxliage - "All the World"
Roxette - "Fading Like A Flower (Everytime You Leave)"
Laava - "Wherever You Are" ( a DDR song )
Sylver - "Drowning In My Tears"
Brandy - "Almost Doesn't Count"
Martina McBride - "Independence Day"
Olive - "Liberty"

Tina Cousins - "Killing Time"
If I could get over you
then I could get away from here
it's such a lonely place
I only have myself to blame
and if I make it through
the wasteland of my mind
maybe then I'll find a way
to find a brighter day

But I'm just killin' time
since you went away
all I have are memories
and every day they fade
I'm the love you didn't want
the love you couldn't reach
I reminisce on every kiss
and I'm just killin' time


Alan Parsons Project - "If I Could Change Your Mind"
Martina McBride - "The Time Has Come"
REO Speedwagon - "In My Dreams"
Daybreak is a joyful time
Just listen to the songbird harmonies, oh the harmonies
But I wish the dawn would never come
I wish there was silence in the trees, oh the trees If only I could stay asleep, at least I could pretend you're thinkin' of me
'Cause night time is the one time I am happy, you see in my dreams


Fauxliage - "All the World"

This is a gorgeous tune. It's produced by the crew that produces Delerium. The vocals are by the lead vocalist from Sixpence None the Richer - Leigh Nash. It's very fitting to me right now.

I'll break you down
I'll take you down, down
Fill you with sadness
Make your life madness

I'm having a hard time
I'm making you do the hard time too.
I'm stuck in a bad way
And I'm gonna make you pay for it.

Give me a mile
I'll take a hundred miles
Such a mistake
Sorry you make

I'm having a hard time
I'm making you do the hard time too
I'm stuck in a bad way
And I'm gonna make you pay for it.

I'm having a hard time
I'm making you do the hard time too.
I'm stuck in a bad way
And I'm gonna make you pay for it.

I'm having a hard time
I'm making you do the hard time too.
I'm stuck in a bad way
And I'm gonna make you pay for it.

I know you're here
I know you're gone
I never asked you to stay
I'm waking up, baby
Now tell me, are you ok?

Song

Tracy Chapman - "Change"

If you knew that you would die today,
If you saw the face of God and Love,
Would you change? Would you change?

If you knew that love can break your heart,
If you're down so low you cannot fall,
Would you change? Would you change?

How bad, how good does it need to get?
How many losses, how much regret?
What chain reaction would cause an effect?
Makes you turn around, makes you try to explain,
Makes you forgive and forget, makes you change?

If you knew that you would be alone,
Knowing right and being wrong,
Would you change? Would you change?

If you knew that you had found a truth,
That brings up pain that can't be soothed,
Would you change? Would you change?

How bad, how good does it need to get?
How many losses, how much regret?
What chain reaction would cause an effect?
Makes you turn around, makes you try to explain,
Makes you forgive and forget, makes you change?

Are you so upright you can't be bent?
If it comes to blows are you so sure you won't be crawling?
If it's not for the good, why risk falling?
Why risk falling?

If everything you think you know,
Makes your life unbearable,
Would you change? Would you change?

If you've broken every rule and vow
And hard times come to bring you down,
Would you change? Would you change?

If you knew that you would die today,
If you saw the face of God and Love,
Would you change? Would you change?


How's that for appropriate?

Because I have no original thoughts of my own...Collapse )
