Local Natives – Who Knows Who Cares – A Take Away Show

I must work now…ok…soon

Fuck! I love Local Natives and then to see them acoustic is almost cry worthy.

VHS or Beta – I Found A Reason

So I’m djing at Bob Rocks on Saturday night – 2nd of July 2011.

I’ll be playing this song and anything not folk. Although my heart beats for folk my feet dance to indie.

Come stalk me , hang out, eat ribs and drink. It’ll be the bestest!

SBTRKT – Never Never

 

Not my usual bag but lovely lyrics and beautiful voice. I’ve decided to grow up alittle and stop chasing heart break. Deleting phone numbers and BBM pins is the smartest thing I could do today 🙂

 

LYRICS!

It’s complicated when you gravitate towards yourself.
On the other hand it’s hard to talk to anyone else.
You can’t help-can’t help where your mind goes.
So lets’ harvest on the moon with the autumn snow.
‘Cause I’ve never never had so much to gain and threw it all away.
And if I ever ever had the chance again I’d probably do the same.
Singing ooooh I’ve only let you down.
Singing ooooh I’ve left you the crown.
Open up open up to see you’re, see you’re face,
Whatching yourself in your dreams like wide awake.
Hoping hoping you’ll return my calls.
Convince myself on my health that it’s not my fault.
‘Cause I’ve never never had so much to gain and threw it all away.
And if I ever ever had the chance again I’d probably do the same.
Singing ooh I’ve only let you down.
Singing ooh I’ve left you the crown.

Ahhhhh…
Ooooh….
Ahhhhh…
Ooooohh…

No one ever had so much to gain or so much to lose.
No one ever had so much to gain or so much to lose.
No one ever had so much to gain or so much to lose.

If I ever had If I ever had if I ever had another…

See I’ve never never had so much to gain and threw it all away.
And if I ever ever had a chance again I’d probably do the same.
Singing ooooh I’ve only let you down.
Singing ooooh I’ve left you the crown.

See I’ve never never had so much to gain or had so much to lose.
And if I ever ever get past the shame and get through the bruises.
Singing oooh I’ll never let you down.
Singing oooh I never left the crown.

Tom Waits – Way Down In The Hole

 

Having a Tom Waits day. God I love this man!

 

Down in the hole…

 

Tom Waits makes me want to smoke more cigarettes and drink whiskey in a shady bar with a bar man who knows my drinks order every time.

 

Single life!

Ok although I enjoyed my exploration of the single life and partying every night I think it’s best to retire my party hat.

I’m so sleepy and London town in 45 days.

Meeeeew!

I might actually need a boyfriend to calm me down – lame but true.

Sleeping and eating til I leave

 

The Antlers – I Don’t Want Love

 

Musical theme for today…I don’t want love 🙂 I’m actually loving being single, making new friends and flirting.

 

Plus in 46 days I’ll be in London seeing if I miss it enough to start moving my life back over there. Exciting times plus I’m doing alot of freelance work thats keeping me busy when I’m not partying. Guitar lessons are going as well as a person who hardly practices can hope for. On the whole every day is better than the last and every day my heart heals more. YAY!

 

I am reverting to London Anna in the smallest gossiping circle in the world… Johannesburg but as long as I don’t get too crazy I think life will be grand 🙂

 

Meeeeeew! I love today and I love you.

 

Release The Sunbird – Always Like The Son

Playing this song on repeat and wishing I could play it on guitar. 4 guitar lessons and still play the lamest version of Bad Moon Rising – I’m sure making time to practice is something I should look into

By the way for people who expect more information from their music… I’m sure we don’t know each other  but we should 🙂

Release The Sunbird is the solo project from Zach Rogue, frontman and founder of Rogue Wave. The album is out  July 26, 2011.

Wow! Information thats more than an emotion from me. I might be growing up but just so you don’t have to guess how this song makes me feel…it’s somewhere between bliss and sleep.

I adore it more than diet coke, kisses and laying in bed watching documentaries about weird people.

Life!

So my quest to have a life post break up begins tonight.

I’m djing at Bob Rock’s in Greenside from 8-10pm. Please note thats 2 hours of me standing up and playing music – I’m very lazy and may make the choice to put a nice chair behind the dj booth – don’t judge 🙂

I spent a year kinda of forgetting myself and being someone else’s biggest fan, so the rest of this year is about me being selfish.

I’m pretty excited! I was so devastated about the end of my relationship last week and now all I can think about is that now my life is starting 🙂 A lot can happen in a week and I feel like a completely different person.

Learning to love myself again rocks ❤
