Day 7: Music is a Universal Language
Music make the people come together ... This is a line on Madonna's song titled Music.
We can't deny that she's correct. No matter what, who and where people are, music does connect people.
Oh sorry to bring up Madonna to you people hahaha! I am just doing my day 7 on the 30-day writing challenge. Whew! I am not even halfway. I told you that this challenge will take ma at least 2 months to finish. hahahaha!
Alright, let's do this!
Honestly, I have two songs that I am listening almost everyday now and I let Lil B listen to this song too. I'll post the links so you can also try to listen to it.
This link is just a cover of the casts on Jimmy Fallon. I can't find a decent video on Youtube from the actual musical movie.
These two songs I play it everyday, Lil B seems to like it too. I don't usually like musical movies but this one will truly capture your ears and hearts. I believe that this musical was produced when Obama was still the president in US. They also performed in the White House. If you will listen to these songs, you'll notice a similarity of the musical arrangement and lyrics in the movie Encanto. It's because Lin Manuel Miranda wrote the songs in both production.
Now I have to check my spotify playlist our my Youtube history library for the other songs ahahaha!
Lil B loves this song too. When she was just a few months old I used to play this song in the morning or when I put her to sleep.
This song is so cute and relaxing. Let me share the lyrics from a part of this song that I love.
I have a dream
I hope it will come true
That you're here with me
And I am here with you
I wish that the earth, sea, and the sky up above
Will send me someone to lava
The word Lava is Love. :)
I may not listen to this song everyday but there's a verse from this song that I embedded on my skin. I had it tattoed on my left wrist. That line serves as a reminder that I am my last hope.
The blood of these veins isn't pumping any less than it ever has
And that's the hope I have the only thing I know that's keeping me alive
This song really lifts up my mood or my view in life whenever I feel down, especially if I feel like giving up in some aspects of my life. This song is so optimistic as high as Brendon Urie's vocal range.
I love Jason Mraz whew! He is one of the underrated singer song writer that people thought was just a one hit wonder. He may not be the Charlie Puth, Justin Bieber or Ed Sheeran type of singer though but he's still works and performs.
Here's the song's chorus part:
I don't care what you might think about me
You can vibe without me if you want
I could be the one to take you home
Baby I could rock the night alone
If we never get down it wouldn't be a let down
But sugar don't forget what you already know
I could be the one to turn you out
We could be the talk across the town
Don't judge me by the color, confuse it for another
You might regret what you let slip away
I'm the geek in the pink pink pink
One of my favorite female singers. She's so talented that singing is not a challenge to her anymore, performing does like what she did in the Glitter in the Air performance in Grammys.
Not only that I love Pink, but I love this song too and probably will still love this song forever. Anyway this song, really hits me hard especially on my teenage to early 20s days. It simply gives me a reflection of who I was.
Well, if you're not a pink fan because of her songs before, you better listen to her current songs. You'll see and hear her life and growth as a human, as a woman and as a mother.
One of the songs that helped me lighten my mood when I had a heartbreak.
I am not sure if 90s kids here still remember the girl band Atomic Kitten. If I'm not mistaken, this song was released because one of the members was pregnant by Brian Mcfadden, a former member of Westlife.
I used to listen to this song when my husband and I were still dating and that's exactly how I feel whenever he goes back to work.
Looking back on when we first met
I cannot escape and I cannot forget
Baby you're the one, you still turn me on
You can make me whole again
Another underrated great singer song writer. I just love how meaningful and relateable her songs are to me.
This song simply puts you in a game face on mood, just as what the title says you should be.
Okay that took me an hour just to decide what songs I should include on my list.
I was actually thinking of including a kpop song but all I can think of Lisa's song Money, which I don't have as of the moment char! But no worries, we are all just waiting for this dip to end so we can have all the money we need.
I hope you enjoyed my list and feel free to comment some songs that you are loving right now too.
