Ambivalence… and music

Video

There are days when only music will serve, and today’s one of them. Someone very dear to me told me I think too much so today, I choose not to ask about the ‘what’ and ‘why’.

How amazing is the human psyche… our unconscious mind always communicating if only we would listen. Ambivalent day filled with ambivalent(?) songs…?

Enjoy!

Pieces… Rob Thomas

Video

And he’s back… Rob Thomas’ latest single, Pieces.

Enjoy!

Run away, run away if you can’t speak
Turn a page on a world that you don’t need
Wide awake and you’re scared that you won’t come down now

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I warn you, didn’t I warn you
Better take it easy, try to find a way out
Better start believing in yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have

Now and then there’s a light in the darkness
Feel around till you find where your heart went
There’s a weight in the air but you can’t see why, why

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I want you, everybody wants you
Tell me what you’re needing, give into your bleeding
Never any feeling for yourself

We build it up, we tear it down
We leave our pieces on the ground
We see no end, we don’t know how
We are lost and we’re falling
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have
Hold onto me
You’re all I have, all I have

Didn’t I tell you you were gonna break down
Didn’t I warn you, didn’t I warn you
Better take it easy, try to find a way out
Better start believing in yourself

Bravo…

Video

A neo-soul song with attitude… for the women and men who embrace change, who rise up and who celebrate being unique.

And for those who find it difficult to get what we’re about  🙂 .

On love…Alain de Botton

Video

“… any of our ideas about love comes from reading novels… essentially we are shaped by the love narratives that we read. … We love within a very historical social context…” 

“… romanticism has been a catastrophe to our capacity to have good long-term relationships…”

Alain de Botton: On Love (at the Sydney Opera House, 10 July 2016)

 

What does he mean? True for you? 

Watch and enjoy. 🙂

To make you feel my love

Video

A song for you… I came across it for the first time when it was recently sung at 2016 The Voice Australia ‘blind’ audition. Made Jessie J, a judge on the panel cry, and me too.

A song written by Bob Dylan and this version released by Adele in her ’19’ album in 2008.

Enjoy!

Sound of silence

Video

Driving along and ‘The Sound of Silence’ streamed through the speakers… not the gentle, contemplative Simon & Garfunkel version, rather the re-make by Disturbed.

Powerful, visceral and somehow more suited, I think, to the world now… haunting and within its dark tones, a call to action. Well, that’s my interpretation of it.

What do you think?
