Music, Voice, and Emotions…

Two of the most talented singers and songwriters whose songs I listen to over and over again are Regina Spektor and James Blunt. Regina’s compositions are simply extraordinary and unconventional. The lyrics of her songs are products of her imagination and creativity. Sometimes, you need to understand what she’s trying to convey through her songs because it’s filled with metaphors. For me, she’s a genius. I love all of her songs, but of course, there are those songs which I listen to most of the time. First on the list is SAMSON. The first time I heard this song, I instantly fell in love with it. Another fave of mine are EET, FIDELITY, and US.

“Samson”

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the sheets of paper lies my truth
I have to go, I have to go
Your hairwas long when we first metSamson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
He ate a slice of wonder bread and went right back to bed
And history books forgot about us and the bible didn’t mention us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even onceYou are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first, I loved you first
Beneath the stars came fallin’ on our heads
But they’re just old light, they’re just old light
Your hair was long when we first met

Samson came to my bed
Told me that my hair was red
Told me I was beautiful and came into my bed
Oh I cut his hair myself one night
A pair of dull scissors in the yellow light
And he told me that I’d done alright
And kissed me ’til the mornin’ light, the mornin’ light
And he kissed me ’til the mornin’ light

Samson went back to bed
Not much hair left on his head
Ate a slice of wonderbread and went right back to bed
Oh, we couldn’t bring the columns down
Yeah we couldn’t destroy a single one
And history books forgot about us
And the bible didn’t mention us, not even once

You are my sweetest downfall
I loved you first

And of course, another favorite song-writer of mine is James Blunt. If you listen to him sing, you will really feel the emotions being poured out through his songs. His lyrics touches your heart and his voice captivates your soul, and that’s how I describe my mood every time I listen to his music. Sometimes, I can’t help but play the same song over and over again before I shift to another song.


Here are my top 3 favorite songs by James Blunt:

1. Goodbye my Lover

2. You’re Beautiful

3. Same Mistake

So, hope you’ll also enjoy and love their songs like I do. I really think they are amazing singers and songwriters.

There is something about the song “You Make Me Smile” by Uncle Kracker that makes me feel good every time I play it on Youtube. It’s like I instantly think of certain people and things that give me reasons to wear a smile on my face.

Perhaps, people who are very much inlove  can relate well to this song. This is the kind of song that makes you want to stay happy and inlove all the time. The lyrics are simple yet it captivates the heart. Do you have that special someone in your life right now who makes you smile? And simply being able to see that person or just to be near  that special someone in your life is already enough to brighten up your day.

I hope you too will find this song cool and captivating. Stay Happily Inlove!!!

Here’s the lyrics of this song “You Make Me Smile” by Uncle Kracker:

You’re better then the best
I’m lucky just to linger in your light
Cooler then the flip side of my pillow, that’s right
Completely unaware
Nothing can compare to where you send me,
Lets me know that it’s ok, yeah it’s ok
And the moments where my good times start to fade

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile

Even when you’re gone
Somehow you come along
Just like a flower poking through sidewalk crack and just like that
You steal away the rain and just like that

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile

Don’t know how I lived without you
Cuz everytime that I get around you
I see the best of me inside your eyes
You make me smile
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild

You make me smile like the sun
Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
Crazy on a Sunday night
You make me dance like a fool
Forget how to breathe
Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
Just the thought of you can drive me wild
Ohh, you make me smile

coffee, banana, laptop, and Regina Spektor for breakfast

banana, coffee, and laptop for breakfast

I’ts Friday morning again. Days come and go so fast that at the start of the day, you already begin to wonder that’s it’s going to end soon, another break of dawn is coming, and the birth of a new day awaits us–again and again and again…

Before my morning slips away, I might as well enjoy my breakfast with a cup of coffee teamed up with a banana while I do some writing and other stuff online. While doing all these–drinking, munching, and typing, a nice background music from Regina Spektor sets my mood.

Regina Spektor is a very talented music artist–a singer, a songwriter, and a pianist. I think her songs are majestic, her lyrics are captivating, and whenever she writes songs, it’s not always the conventional type of songs we hear from other musicians. I love all her songs. I love her videos. I love her style.
