New Look – Teen Need

LOVE this!

‘this nasty way you treat me, makes me love you more’

Sing it girl! (channeling my inner Oprah)

Canada just continues to be my dream musical destination. Le sigh!

Gotye- Somebody That I Used To Know

So I heard this song today and died alittle bit inside. Feels like it’s a song about all my past relationships! Intense but the best musical find of the month.

 

Wowza!

 

Lyrics:

Now and then I think of when we were together
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Told myself that you were right for me
But felt so lonely in your company
But that was love and it’s an ache I still remember

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end
Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense
Well you said that we would still be friends
But I’ll admit that I was glad that it was over

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
But had me believing it was always something that I’d done
And I don’t wanna live that way
Reading into every word you say
You said that you could let it go
And I wouldn’t catch you hung up on somebody that you used to know…

But you didn’t have to cut me off
Make out like it never happened
And that we were nothing
And I don’t even need your love
But you treat me like a stranger
And that feels so rough
You didn’t have to stoop so low
Have your friends collect your records
And then change your number
I guess that I don’t need that though
Now you’re just somebody that I used to know

I used to know
That I used to know

Somebody…

Jeremy Warmsley – If He Breaks Your Heart acoustic version

My bad! I forgot how much I adore Jeremy Warmsley. It’s the ‘I still won’t stand a chance’ line that gets me every time. Prettiness and heartbreak wrapped in a song

If he breaks your heart
I will break his legs
If he takes the piss
I will break his face
If he fucks it up
I will kill him stone cold dead
If he breaks your heart
Will I stand a chance?

If he hangs around
Like an awful smell
I will have some words
I will keep you safe
If he never gets the message
Written loud and clear
I will write it down
I will take him down
If he breaks your heart
Will I stand a chance?

Ahhh…

If he treats you right
I will be his friend
I will never sing
This song out loud
If he breaks your heart
I will break his legs
If he breaks your heart
I will break his face
If he breaks your heart
I will end him
I

If he breaks your heart
I still won’t stand a chance

Ahhh…

Oooooo…

Widowspeak – Harsh Realm

 

Lyrics:

Last night I thought of you
Years ago, when bodies grew
An empty home
A vacant Hell
I knew you in the harsh realm
I thought about how it was
I thought about you because
I always
think about you
I always think about you

I always think about you
I always think about you
I always think about you
I always think about you

active child – hanging on

 

So I heard this song and thought of one of my favourite London people. In 4 weeks I’ll be exploring Brighton with them and drinking pints by the seaside. Exciting!

 

It’ll be my first Brighton visit so I’m extra happy.

 

Freelancing like a mo fo to have money for London shopping and partying so I no longer get to be a party animal. And in the midst of cutting 2 music videos and a stage play  I’ve been trying to get my after effects skills up. Feeling alittle overwhelmed by ambition! I blame Adam – my old friend whose become my fav hang out friend. He has so much energy and ambition that it’s bound to rub off.

A year of mediocracy and now I’m ready to shine 🙂 Got 1 week til these music videos go live and they’re going to be so amazing .

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.

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 ❤
