Young Guns


These guys are just amazing I heard one song then searched them on YouTube and watched all there videos, and fell in love with almost all of them. It all started with “Bones” heard it on the radio and now I’m hooked. They don’t have nearly the amount of views they deserve on YouTube.

Lyrics

Down under the night sky
I lay in wait
Praying to whoever will listen to me.
I’d fashioned my own cross,
Been crushed by it’s weight
There’s no stronger message
Then dirt in your face.

I’ve seen down the end of the road
Now i deal in a different story, oh
And i will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I’ll do this on my own. (o-o-oh bones, bones o-oh)

They say the spirit’s willing
But the flesh is always weak
Well I found everything i needed right beneath my skin -oh

I’ve seen down the end of the road
Now i deal in a different story, oh
And i will never go back again
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I feel it in my bones, bones, bones
I’ll do this on my own.

The list of hits just go on from there

Stitches

Lyrics

Every hour is a season
Every minute lasts a day
So I sit here picking stitches
I find comfort in decay
How I long to fill my lungs

So tell me how does it feel to,
Breathe air cold and clean
‘Cause I’ve been living on my knees since I was seventeen
Thought I was safe beneath the smoke,
But even under cover I still choke

Well my wings were clipped and even if they weren’t
(Even if they weren’t)
I’ve not the guts to fly and leave behind the Earth
(Leave behind the Earth)
There’s no poetry in my soul,
(Poetry, in my soul)
Just a list of lies I’ve told,
(There’s just lies, that I’ve told)
And I don’t know how much longer I can hold on.

Well my wings were clipped and even if they weren’t
(Even if they weren’t)
I’ve not the guts to fly and leave behind the earth
(Leave behind the Earth)

Weight of the World

A continent of doubt weighs heavy on mind,
How long can my brittle bones bend,
Before they yield and snap?

I don’t wanna know, ’cause I’m so scared,
It’s not gonna get easier than this,
Because it’s too much to bare my darlin’, the weight of the world,
And I would carry it for you,
But please don’t ask me to because the
Weight of the world is a burden I can’t bare.
Is a burden I can’t bare.

Maybe it’s gravity, that pulls her to my chest,
Not the fear that she is the source of what little strength I’ve got left,

I don’t wanna know, ’cause I’m so scared,
It’s not gonna get easier than this
Because it’s too much to bare my darlin’, the weight of the world,
I would carry it for you,
But please don’t ask me to because the
Weight of the world is a burden I can’t bare.

My horizon lies a jagged line,
Ooh I can clearly see,
The mountains that I’ve yet to climb,
I’ll get there if it kills me.

Learn my Lesson

Lyrics

I am a wavering candle light
I remain but I’m ever slight
Through all my years
I sit
In my room in the fading light
Righting back all my wrongs tonight
‘Cause I’m still here

Boarded up all the doors
And I swallowed all the keys
I’m still haunted by
All the things I’ll never be

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart’s a heavy burden
So I take (I take)
I don’t wait (don’t wait)
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I’ll take
Won’t wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight

I
Never knew it could be so cold
But I burnt all the things I used to hold so dear
Still I fight (I fight)
With my pen in my hand held tight (held high)
Writing protest songs tonight
‘Cause I’m still here

Boarded up all the doors
And I swallowed all the keys
I’m still haunted by
All the things I’ll never be

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart’s a heavy burden
So I take (I take)
I don’t wait (don’t wait)
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I’ll take
Won’t wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight
Woah, woah

I’ll get off my knees and fight
Kick down the doors let in the light tonight
Tonight

To live
Is to learn
Oh the heart’s a heavy burden
So I take (I take)
I don’t wait (don’t wait)
Nothing ever is for certain
And I hold my hands up high
On my knees tonight
I’ll take
Won’t wait
I will live and learn my lesson here tonight
Woah, woah

I will live and learn my lesson

Thanks South Park ….


 

 

 

Thanks Honey Boo Boo for taking TV to a whole new low. It just goes to show you that it doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, or what you look like… anyone can make it on to TV now-a-days.

South Park hit the nail on the head with this one they always over exaggerate their skits to make the ridiculously hilarious but they really didn’t have to use much imagination the comedy was already there

Thanks South Park for helping us to realize that we have reached an all time low.

Places to watch the episode. 🙂 Enjoy

Can’t Believe it


There is actually some country songs that I think are worth sharing…. WHAT??!?! Didn’t I tell myself that I was not going to listen to some guy cry about his tractor, and his dog.

This guy is what i picture when I think of country music……

———————–>

These songs I stumbled across on the van ride to and from work. Since I ride in a vanpool I don’t get to decide what is going to be played on the radio. Good beat, great voices, not to twangy, and lyrics are something that anyone that has ever had someone special can relate to. What could go wrong there.

I Promise I will not be posting a lot of county but these ones were totally worth the 2 seconds it takes to throw a blog together. 😉

Josh Turner – Time Is Love

Kenny Chesney – Come Over

…..The women’s bathing suit in this video is just too awesome….

Enjoy!

Best Underplayed & Worst Overplayed Songs on YouTube


After looking at some of the videos on YouTube trying to find some new music to listen to, I started looking in the “most popular” categories and “most viewed” categories and after a few really bad songs like “Gangnam Style”  I realized that my faith in humanity was slowly diminishing, the more YouTube suggested that I might like this. In case you are not familiar with this huge fail song here it is….. Don’t say I didn’t warn you of the lameness.

Which has 264,422,519 views and he is not even speaking in English.

The only way this is acceptable is if it were a parody.

I think there is some really good music out there that is not being heard because we get crap like this leaked into our ears getting stuck in our heads and tainting our ideas of what “music” really is.

I remember back in the good old days when music had to make since it also had to have some sort of meaning, something that the audience can relate to and sing along to with raw emotion.

I will admit not all the songs I listen to have the deepest meaning I listen to them because they have a good beat but it is still by an artist that is not completely worthless in their song writing abilities.

There is a bad that I recently came across and was astonished by the small amount of people who had listen to him. I was also surprised to see that almost everyone that had clicked on him to view him liked what they heard.

Passenger – Let her go (only 224,911 views as of 9/24/12)

Lyrics:

“Well you only need the light when it’s burning low
Only miss the sun when it’s starts to snow
Only know your lover when you let her go

Only know you’ve been high when you’re feeling low
Only hate the road when you’re missin’ home
Only know your lover when you’ve let her go…
And you let her go”

Now I may not be into all the brits music but this guys has a peaceful beautiful voice that just makes you want to keep listening. I can’t believe someone like this with all that natural talent has not completely blown up but someone like Nicki Minaj can get millions of records sold… because of what… just a catchy beat, because the lyrics are not something to be proud of.

Example of all the ridiculousness:

Nicki’s Lyrics to “Super Bass” (280,066,357 Views on YouTube)

“He got that super bass

Boom, Badoom, Boom,

Boom, Badoom, Boom, bass

yeah that’s that super bass”

Yes she made millions on not even saying real words.

Justin Bieber’s  “Baby” (781,726,935 Views on YouTube)

“And I was like
Baby, baby, baby ooh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
I thought you’d always be mine (mine)
Baby, baby, baby ohh
Like
Baby, baby, baby noo
Like
Baby, baby, baby ohh
I thought you’d always be mine (mine)”

Yes, he said “baby” 18 times in one chorus. And Yes it is also the most viewed video on YouTube. 

That’s all it takes to make millions of dollars now a days. At least people have come to their scenes and now he has over 2 million dislikes on the song but that’s still no excuse for there to be almost a billion hits on YouTube for it. When you see that it’s defiantly one of those “I don’t want to live on this planet anymore” kind of times.

I also heard some of Flyleaf’s new songs and became very fond of one of them….

Flyleaf – New Horizon (2012)

While I was listening to her new music I found some of the older stuff I liked too

Flyleaf – Missing 2010
Flyleaf – Sorrow 2008

Another band that is not the most popular has released a new song that I think is pretty catchy not too strangely worded and its something with a beat and a decent voice whats could go wrong. 😉

Civil Twilight – River (2012)

I’m just saying we might need to start getting off the radio buzz and the Google+ “Trending Topics” and go digging for artists that are really artists. We don’t need to be tricked and brainwashed by our TV and radio to listen to Justin Bieber.

I hope I have exposed you to a few songs you might not have heard before and might like, or maybe you hated it but it got you thinking about just exploring some new stuff. Good luck on your YouTube adventures.

I think I’m Regressing


Ever since my boyfriend started taking the night shift it has been ridiculous trying to sleep alone at night. I feel like I toss and turn all night because I wake up with all the pillows all over the floor, and the blankets are twisted and hanging off the bed. I thought it would get easier after a while, I even bought a new pillow that is about the same size as me and still I feel like I get no rest in the bed without him there.

I am so tired today it is ridiculous, I feel like I haven’t slept at all, and to top it off it is a super slow day at work so there is not even a high pressure project to keep me awake. I contemplated finding a privacy room to fall asleep in but just my luck I would be caught and fired…. so I went and got a coffee instead.

I have been sleeping next to him for almost 7 years now how am I supposed to get used to sleeping alone?!?! I was thinking that getting to stretch out, finally not be pushed to the edge of the bed, or not being smashed when we rolls over would be enough to satisfy my need for comfy sleep. Unfortunately now I have become accustom to being smashed in my sleep. I even tried piling pillows on top of myself so I could replicate the smashing and nope… just couldn’t breathe and got over heated way to fast.

Every time he leaves when I am about to go to sleep I feel like a little kid that is trying to force their dad to stay home.

I have the whole kid persona down. I have the puckered lip out, the big sad eyes, and I even wine a little bit even though I know him leaving is inevitably going to happen. I would kick and scream but by the time the clock says 9:30 I only have enough strength to push my pillow around and huff and puff a little bit.

Oh well, we have to do what we have to do in order to finally get a house. Though we are practically living in a house now it is not nearly as big as I would like for as many people live there. So once we are walking through the doors of our new house and he is all done with all this night shift crap and he can find a new job or a new shift it will all be worth it, but until then I guess I will have to regress to the prime age of 4 and squeal every time I see him leave or snuggle him when I come home from work and he is still asleep. I just have to take advantage of the little time that we do get to spend together.

If I wasn’t clingy before I sure am now. Every time we are just sitting around next to each other I find myself just trying to touch him anywhere I can, grabbing the little arm of his shirt, scratch his back, pinch or poke… its doesn’t matter to me. When he finally asked me what I was doing I told him, “just tying to get some physical attention while I can!”

Well so far my only coping mechanism I have found is every morning when I have to get ready alone I listen to the same song, it almost makes me want to cry but it is just want I need to hear at that moment so it evens out. (and for the record I haven’t cried yet!)

I’m So Ronery …


My first morning getting ready without my hubby was so lonely, I had been getting ready in my bathroom while he slept for almost a year but at least he was still right there to snuggle me while I slept, and for me to hug and kiss before I left the house.

This morning I had to get ready alone because he recently started working the night shift and he goes to work when it is time for me to go to sleep, he is sleeping when I get home from work because he has to get up at 8:00pm and I am sleeping when it is time for him to get up and get ready.

Our schedule barley fits any time for us to just hang out like we used to ….. that’s why I thought this song was perfect for the occasion……

………I am so ronery now …..
