My grandson showed me this site and I had to share, it’s adorable!

Survive

Survive

These three songs immediately came to mind.  They make an unequalled point about strength being required to survive and it takes guts fortitude and determination.

Gloria Gaynor

Oh no, not I, I will survive
Oh, as long as I know how to love, I know I’ll stay alive
I’ve got all my life to live
And I’ve got all my love to give and I’ll survive
I will survive, hey, hey

12. “Roar” by Katy Perry

Katy Perry is no shrinking violet. In this 2013 Grammy-nominated hit, she celebrates her transformation from a spineless pushover to a gutsy broad who is ready to tackle any challenge.

If you find that you need motivation, her can-do spirit is contagious.

God knows I’ve had hundreds and hundreds of reasons to give up give in, quit.  But I am a survivor. You can too!  So whenever life gets too much, seems overwhelming and too difficult remember one of these fabulous woman and sing their song as though it were an anthem and in your weakest moments, it will buoy you up and get you through to the next step.

Music touches the Soul

A musical interlude including some incredible voices and messages.  Enjoy.

Seal, I simply love him.  He has a real love of music and so willing to give of himself and share with others.

There’s something in the end of this video, the look on Adam Levine’s face and in his eyes (though he’s obviously tired) that speaks volumes.

Haven’t every one of us (women) hoped our fella would feel just this way about us?

 

Better

Better

I couldn’t describe this beautiful, haunting, and chilling piece of music if I tried.  It perfectly describes “Better”  A better world for all human kind, when we live, love, laugh, accept and care.  I hope you enjoy as much as I did.  It is incredibly spectacular!

Coming on the heels of meaningless, interpretation means everything and nothing.  We individually interpret life’s experiences and even songs as relating to those experiences.

Celine Dion

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

You were always there for me
The tender wind that carried me
A light in the dark shining your love into my life
You’ve been my inspiration
Through the lies you were the truth
My world is a better place because of you

You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn’t speak
You were my eyes when I couldn’t see
You saw the best there was in me
Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach
You gave me faith ‘coz you believed
I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

I’m everything I am
Because you loved me

For me, this song relates to a difficult time in my life and  my children were my inspiration, saw the truth, and though I was fragile as glass, didn’t judge me but loved me unconditionally.

This song brings tears every time I hear it. I owe much to the love of my children.  I love them always and forever.

 

Song Challenge 4 Cher

No matter how hard I try
You keep pushing me aside
And I can’t break through
There’s no talking to you
It’s so sad that you’re leaving
It takes time to believe it
But after all is said and done
You’re gonna be the lonely one
Do you believe in life after love
I can feel something inside me say
I really don’t think you’re strong enough
Do you believe in life after love
I can feel something inside me say
I really don’t think you’re strong enough
What am I supposed to do
Sit around and wait for you
Well I can’t do that
And there’s no turning back
I need time to move on
I need a love to feel strong
Cause I’ve got time to think it through
And maybe I’m too good for you
Do you believe in life after love
Full lyrics on Google Play Music
The decision to leave any situation, especially a relationship, is painful and difficult to understand, especially when the “close is gone”.  It’s their loss, not yours because they didn’t care enough, were involved enough, loved enough.

Song Challenge Day 1

Painting Pictures by Adele
Painting pictures with my mind
Making memories using my eyes
Filling up my heart with golden stories
Who adds some spice to the rhythm of life
Ooh
Welcome sunrise with the morning glory
I’ve changed my mind
There is no simple
I thought of me
I want to see
I want to feel my heartbeat so
With the world that you feel
Leave

I love Adele, her voice, her songs, her stories.  They are real.
For me, this song is about loss of sight and how important it’s become to savour everything I can see so that I have memories in my mind that are beautiful, filled with joy and heart. It’s about precious moments in time, I want to remember forever.

Song Day Challenge 2

People are People Depeche Mode
So we’re different colours
And we’re different creeds
And different people have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I never even met you
So what could I have done
I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand
Lyrics Freak
I deplore prejudice based on skin colour. I detest the abuse and cruelty heaped on others because their skin colour is different… I can’t wrap my head around it.  There is no understanding this, for me…

Whitney Houston’s “One Moment in Time”

I want one moment in time
When I’m more than I thought I could be
When all of my dreams are a heartbeat away
And the answers are all up to me
Give me one moment in time
When I’m racing with destiny
Then in that one moment of time
I will feel
I will feel eternity

I’ve lived to be
The very best
I want it all
No time for less
I’ve laid the plans
Now lay the chance
Here in my hands

 

Lyrics at Google Play Music

For me, it’s the ultimate, that one moment of recognition in which you realized you may not have reached the highest heights according to status, money, fame, but that you took the reins in your hands and became the ultimate “in what’s important your world”. Whether that is saving another’s life, providing a thought provoking question, touching someone’s soul, especially when they are down…whatever it was, that one moment of time changed everything for an eternity. And it does. It’s all up to us!

Ruell-Up in Flames November Notes

Related image

When you have the strength to stand

And you have a plan in hand

With a foundation or a platform

We can weather any storm

So if everything should go up in flames

We shall all the fires tame

Together forever standing

United our arms banding

We’re standing the test of time

Our love lasting for a lifetime

 

 

Recreational by Aaron Krauss November Songs

This is a song about regrets and taking responsibility especially when there are doubts. Leaving when it’s over because it’s better.

There was so much that should be said

This isn’t at all what was intended

Even though you were right beside me

Your love shining ever brightly

I couldn’t see you for the forest

For in my life I was but a tourist

My heart belonged to another

I never meant to make you suffer

I didn’t realize you were the rebound

Or another I would have found

We talked about hopes dreams beliefs

All the while from your lips dripped deceit

You should have walked long ago

Your fake love not on any other bestow

Get your head on straight

Before you open loves gate

So your heart full with love you could give

And each of you thereby happily live

The joy that was meant to be

Shared intensely earnestly

 

 

 

 

Sensational Talent

I’m an avid watcher of The Voice, worldwide.  I have also watched since inception, America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent.  Why?  Because of the sensational and diversified talent offered.  Many are unknown, having tried valiantly to break into the music world.  Other talents such as Magic Acts, Comedy, Instrumental Talents come to present their routines.

I’m constantly astounded by the amount of talent the world has to offer.  In my personal opinion, many, though unheard of are incredible!  What makes each so special and so unique is their take on the compilation and presentation of any given song, for example.

I will attempt to add links to a couple of singers that were incredible and a couple of Comedy Acts and Magic Acts as well so you have an opportunity enjoy what I have witnessed.

First is Alisan Porter, Mitchell Brunings, Darcy Oakes, Ricky K,  Philip Green, Paul Zerdin.

I mention their names  because I was unaware it forwards to another contestant.  Those are the people I suggested anyway, not that there aren’t dozens more I could suggest and enjoyed immensely.

I hope these few examples delight and please you as much as they did me.
