In the room where I sleep … my thoughts overflow.

On this week’s musical revolution, I am going to focus on songs that personal affect me. These songs have become a personal anthem in one part of my life or another. And today, I would like to share them with you. I can’t say that I have a favorite song cause I literally have thousands! There are a few though, that bring me to my knees sorta speak.

I think overall I am a happy person. I have been told I am annoyingly optimistic.  Some music just brings out a kind of sadness in me.  I like to say I am emotionless but that’s not really the case. My problem is that I ignore my right to feel. So in this way sometimes music is a therapy session for me… for free or for the cost of a iTunes single.

For instance, one song that carries a lot of emotion for me  is Fine Again-Seether

The first time I heard this song it just spoke to me. I had just finished high school and it felt like I was just trying to figure myself, the people around me, and the world out. I felt disappointed. Being grown up was not what I thought it would be again. I was on fast track and I just wanted to be ok. This song was my anthem. Eve though I feel comfortable with my life now, when I hear this song, I still remember the feeling of just being … “lost”.

The next song reminds me of childhood and memories I keep but with people I lost.

Desperately Wanted- Better than Ezra

Nostalgia is bitter-sweet.

This next song totally consumed my life in the 90’s and then everything else this band made. It screamed at me, it begged me, and had such a powerful voice.  Til this day, I can’t help but rock out when I hear this song.

Zombie-Cranberries

This next band is newer to me though I have liked them for about a year after discovering them. I love everything about this band but this song is so heavy! It just speaks to me.

Heavy in Your Arms- Florence and the Machine

I love all the possible meanings of this song. I feel like it’s a  story about unrequited love. Maybe the feelings weren’t mutual, or the other person wasn’t ready for the intensity of that relationship, or both. For whatever reason, the love-interest couldn’t meet her half-way.

 

That’s it…. for today. So I leave you with one last song… the song I always want to smoke a cigarette to right after I listen to ….

Crystalized- The XX’s

I covet this song!
