Is This Why I Love Music So Much?

May 4, 2009 1 comment

Is this why I can’t stand the silence?  Lyrics from a new Jars of Clay song…It’s really moving.  Great melodies, great message.  The video is under the lyrics.

I don’t have to hear it
If I don’t want to
I can drown this out
Pull the curtains down on you
It’s a heavy world
It’s too much for me to care
If I close my eyes
It’s not there

With my headphones on (x4)

We watch television
But the sound is something else
Just a song played against the drama
So the hurt is never felt
I take in the war fires
And I’m chilled by the current events
It’s so hopeless
But there’s a pop song in my head

phones on
With my headphones on (x7)

At the tube stop
You sit down across from me
I think I know you
By the sad eyes that I see
And I wanna tell you
Everything will be ok
But you wouldn’t hear it
So we go our separate ways

with our headphones on

I don’t wanna be the one who
Tries to figure it out
I don’t need another reason
I should care about you
You don’t wanna know my story
You don’t wanna own my pain
We’re living in a heavy, heavy world
And there’s a pop song in my head
yeah there’s a pop song in my head

Yeah it’s a heavy world
Oh no, I don’t wanna have to hear it
Heavy world

No, I don’t wanna have to hear it (x3)

The Federal Government is Bankrupt

This is not simple doom and gloom reporting.  This is the truth.  The Federal Government’s future obligations total 65.5 trillion dollars, which is higher than the WHOLE EARTH’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP).  Scary?  Yes. Our Money Will Be Worth in the Future

Song of the Day- I Am by Markus Schulz

Markus Schulz is one of my favorite DJs.  His music is high energy, and ebbs and flows quite well.  People that typically hate progressive dance music because of its repetitive nature may enjoy this.  Or you may just think, “wow, that’s music?”  Yes, yes it is.  It makes for good background music for driving, mowing, and definitely working out.

I Am- Markus Schulz

Ever seen those motivational posters that are up in businesses, schools, and places like that? Someone with a twisted sense of humor has come up with demotivational posters.

Song of the Day- Black Cat by Ladytron

June 10, 2008 1 comment

This is a brand new song by a group called Ladytron. They are a modern throwback to early 80’s synth rock. What I like about this song is that it’s sung in Bulgarian. The translation is pretty boring, but it’s such a different sound that I think it’s pretty original. Plus the Bulgarian has such a guttural and harsh sound to it, it really matches the heavy drum sounds.

Song of the Day- All My Tears by Jars Of Clay

This is basically a modern day hymn. I really like it, it’s a little country, a little gospel with cool rhymes, harmonies, and piano work. This is from their album Good Monsters. Enjoy!

Song of the Day- Violet Hill by Coldplay

April 30, 2008 1 comment

Coldplay has a new album coming out June 16th. This is their free single, Violet Hill. It’s very different than their previous work, I really like it. Apparently, it was produced by Brian Eno, the man behind some of U2s great albums, and an electronic music wizard. The song really doesn’t get going until a bit into it, but when it does, it’s got a great groove.  The lyrics are a bit “eh”, and ambiguous, and Chris’s vocals sound weak and wobbly as usual, but for whatever reason, I just DIG the music.
