Back to Blogging

I am returning to the blogging world.  I tried to talk about my music likes and what not on Twitter with the #nowplaying hashtag, but it just didn't feel as gratifying.  I am a writer by nature and sometimes it takes more than a line of lyric to express how I feel.  And, I feel things through music a LOT.  After all, we have feelings 24/7.  If you don't, you are dead.  Wake up and turn on your radio!  Haha.  

Anyway, I have two songs stuck in my head right now.  I would much rather be asleep, but I can't sleep, and hence me throwing in the towel to start this blog again.

#1 "Why Do I" by Joe Purdy
I must credit my friend Danielle for introducing me to this song.  I feel like it totally applies to my life in this moment.  I spent the weekend with my boyfriend and had an amazing time.  Yes, he is pretty wonderful, not gonna lie.  And tonight, coming home, back to my own bed without him is difficult.  So, I'm sitting here wondering: "Why do I get so lonely?/ When there really ain't nothin' wrong/ I can sleep just fine when you hold me/ Can't sleep at all when you're gone."  For anyone in a long-distance relationship, or anyone that's ever been in one, it's not easy.  Absolutely nothing is wrong.  I'm a strong girl, but coming home to a quiet room and empty bed just isn't a feeling I enjoy thoroughly.  From what I can tell, Joe Purdy is wonderful.  A little twangy at times, but a lot of feeling, and some great guitar.  A nice chill song for a rainy day.  Check out "Why Do I" and some of his other tunes on this music player from Danielle's blog...and check out her other posts too, because she's awesome.

#2 "Somewhere In Between" by Lifehouse
I have this horrible addiction to Lifehouse and while I feel that all of their songs sound very similar and are totally mundane, I find myself hooked.  "I can't be/ Losing sleep over this/ No I can't...What is real/ Just a dream."  I never thought I would be that person who confused real life with dreams.  But lately, things have been good and I feel a little like I'm floating.  The smooth sound of Jason Wade's voice somehow makes me feel like all is right in the world.  I just LOVE this song lately.  That's a lie.  I LOVE the verses.  The chorus is mediocre.  But the verses...the verses make me melt.  Not exactly sure why...

  1. ha, thanks for the shout out... I seriously find myself humming that song all the time and I don't even have it on a CD or anything! I heard it once on my Pandora station and immediately looked it up online... so catchy.
