I added new songs to my home page under “Songs On Repeat.” I’ve been really digging these songs lately, and continuously hitting back on my ipod or car or itunes (too bad you can’t hit repeat on Pandora). I hope you enjoy them too. And in case you weren’t aware, there is a little “play” button next to the song on the home page where you can listen to the song.
If I Ever Feel Better
Lryically this song is a sad yet redemptive song about someone that has gone through a terrible heartache. He knows that this pain that he feels, however devastating, will some day fade away. He is confident in that. However, you can also feel the deep sadness that doesn’t want to believe that. There is courage in this song. There is perseverance and faith.
Even though this song has such heavy lyrics, the beat of the music is really catchy and always makes me happy when I hear it. To me, its a happy song. I cannot help myself but to dance around and sing to this song. This song makes me happy.
Dark is the night, cold is the ground
In the circular solitude of my heart
As one who strives a hill to climb
I am sure I’ll come through I don’t know how
They say an end can be a start
Feels like I’ve been buried yet I’m still alive
Dress Up in You
The Life Pursuit
Belle & Sebastian
This is a beautiful, serene sounding song that takes a wallop with its lyrics. Every verse is a power punch to the gut. Its going along all pretty sounding and then you hear the F bomb, and have to rewind to make sure you heard it correctly. The more you rewind it, the more it stands out as brilliant and genius.
I love it when the horn section comes in as well. I wrote a pensée from this song not too long ago.
Blow up in the face of my rivals
I swear and I rant, I make quite an arrival
The men are surprised by the language
They act so discreet, they are hypocrites so fuck them too!
Empire State Of Mind

Jay-Z (with Alicia Keys)
I recently posted two videos of this song. Its a great song about the city of New York. However, I truly love the lyrics that Alicia Keys sings. Lyrics that give you hope and that pump you up to believe that anything is possible. Jay-Z meanwhile takes you through his memory of the city and all that he has experienced there. Looking back on his life, he is grateful for all he has seen and done.
Sometimes we have to pinch ourselves in life about how much we are blessed. At the same time, we have to always believe that we can accomplish anything, no matter how difficult a belief that might be.
Concrete jungle where dreams are made of
Theres nothing you can’t do
Now you’re in new york
These streets will make you feel brand new
The lights will inspire you
