Music Monday – For The Longest Time

This song has been stuck in my head for days. Now, it’s out there with you. Maybe I’ll get a little bit of a reprieve until the next song embeds itself… It’s funny how it happens out of the blue, like that. It’s been happening to me a lot lately. I’m not sure why. A lot of older songs, 60’s and 70’s songs, some 80’s, but mostly from before. I love them all, but it makes me wonder what my brain is trying to tell me…

Music Monday – Hold Back The River

I don’t know anything about this artists except that I like this song. I haven’t listened to his whole album, but I’m pretty sure one day soon I will.

Something about the lyrics get to me…

When was the last time you listened to a new song or artist and couldn’t get it out of your head? What are you listening to this week?

Music Monday – Blank Space

This is dark and emotional and twisted and dramatic and I love the story it tells…

I love how Taylor Swift has reinvented herself. She’s always been one to write her emotions and thoughts into her songs and I admir that about her. She might have been made fun of, teased, and maybe not taken seriously, but I like that she’s kept at it and created her own way through it all. She tries new things, new sounds, and she isn’t too big to talk to her fans, to communicate with them.

I like artists like that… Don’t do the same thing. Find themselves. Re-invent themselves. And are human.

Who are you listening to this week?

Music Monday – Breaking Benjamin

I, along with millions of fans have been for years for a new release from Breaking Benjamin. After health issues and a lawsuit and new band members, Breaking Benjamin, is back. They’re touring, they’ve got a new single that released this morning, and they’ve got a new album, Dark Before Dawn, set to release in June.

Links were supposed to go live at 9am EST this morning, but so far, the links aren’t live. I’ll be checking throughout the day though… For now, I’ll keep with the ecstatic feeling when I hear Benjamin Burnley sing…

Failure…

I Will Not Bow…

Give Me A Sign…

Breath…
