Musikk

Billie the Vision & the Dancers

Billie the Vision & the Dancers har blitt et av mine yndlingsband i det siste. De har fantastisk musikk, og alle albumene kan lastes ned på deres hjemmeside, helt gratis (man kan donere et ønsket beløp om man vil).

Bandet er fra Sverige, og blir beskrevet som indie-pop på de fleste musikksider. Sangene deres er så søte, og de forteller virkelig en historie. Mange av sangene handler om en gutt som heter Pablo og en jente som heter Lily. Noen av sangene gir meg lyst til å danse, andre får meg til å smile og noen gjør meg trist på en fin måte.

Dette er virkelig et bra band. Man hører på sangene at de virkelig bryr seg om musikken. Jeg anbefaler alle å sjekke dem ut og gi dem en sjanse, selv om de er litt uvanlige. Det er et band du fort blir glad i om du er åpen for det.

Mine yndlingssanger om dagen:

Liar and a thief

So take me down to the paradise city
Where the grass is green
and the girls are just like you
where I can start again

City

I can?t believe I?m here and that I don?t fear tomorrow anymore
I think we might be headed for a great time
So look at me, tell me what you see and give me a left cheek kiss
If this is not called happiness and don?t know what it is

Nightmares

You know the little girl I was talking about she was hanging in a rope
I?m so exhausted and I?m so tired of this so don?t expect from me to cope
And the nightmares came over me again
I said shoot me if you really hate me and then he shot me in the head
I could see it all happen right before my eyes and I was lying down there dead
And the nightmares came over me again

Liker du musikken?

Only fooling myself

Åå. Denne sangen gjør meg så glad, og samtidig så trist. Jeg syns den er nydelig. Det finnes tydeligvis flere versjoner av sangen. Jeg liker denne under best, den offisielle videoen med en annen versjon av sangen kan du se her.



I stop to catch my breath
And I stop to catch your eye
No need to second-guess
That you've been on my mind
Well I, I dream days away, but that's OK

It's like I want to hear a silent sound
And then hold it in my hand
But a rose won't blossom from a ground
Of desert sand, but I like to pretend that

One day I'll turn around, I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, oh
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now

Well, now it's etched in stone
That I can't survive alone
You have the missing piece
That I need so desperately
Yes, I slip away to a day that'll never come

It's like a splash of water to my face
When I suddenly realize
That you could never find a place
For me in your eyes, and I don't know why I keep thinking

One day I'll turn around, I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, oh
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now

It's love in disguise
I'm lost in your eyes
Lost in your eyes

One day I'll turn around, I'll see your hand reach out
I'm only fooling myself, oh
But maybe when you smile
It means you'd stay awhile
Just maybe you'd save me now

About you now

Sangen snakker for seg selv. I love it.



It was so easy that night,
Should have been strong, yeah I lied,
Nobody gets me like you,
Couldn't keep hold of you then,
How could I know what you meant,
There was nothing to compare to

I know everything changes,
All the cities and faces,
But I know how I feel about you,
There's a mountain between us,
But there's one thing im sure of,
That I know how I feel about you

Can we bring yesterday back around,
'Cus I know how I feel about you now,
I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down,
But I know how I feel about you now

All that it takes one more chance,
Don't let our last kiss be our last,
Give me tonight and I'll show you

I know everything changes,
I don't care where it takes us,
'Cus I know how I feel about you

Can we bring yesterday back around,
'Cus I know how I feel about you now,
I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down,
But I know how I feel about you now

Not a day pass me by,
Not a day pass me by,
When I don't think about you,
And there's no moving on,
'Cus I know your the one,
And I can't be without you

Can we bring yesterday back around,
'Cus I know how I feel about you now,
I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down,
But I know how I feel about you now

Can we bring yesterday back around,
'Cus I know how I feel about you now,
I was dumb, I was wrong, I let you down,
But I know how I feel about you now

But I know how I feel about you now
Yes I know how I feel about you now

Unwell

Alle husker vel denne sangen? De fleste vokste fra den, men jeg liker den fortsatt. Vi føler oss vel alle litt gale noen ganger, så da passer denne sangen.



All day staring at the ceiling
Making friends with shadows on my wall
All night hearing voices telling me
That I should get some sleep
Because tomorrow might be good for something

Hold on
Feeling like I'm headed for a breakdown
And I don't know why

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be...me

I'm talking to myself in public
Dodging glances on the train
And I know, I know they've all been talking about me
I can hear them whisper
And it makes me think there must be something wrong with me
Out of all the hours thinking
Somehow I've lost my mind

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

I've been talking in my sleep
Pretty soon they'll come to get me
Yeah, they're taking me away

But I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
I know right now you can't tell
But stay awhile and maybe then you'll see
A different side of me
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little impaired
I know right now you don't care
But soon enough you're gonna think of me
And how I used to be

Yeah, how I used to be
How I used to be
Well, I'm just a little unwell
How I used to be
How I used to be
I'm just a little unwell

One Tree Hill musikk

PS: Alle linkene i dette innlegget er linker til tidligere innlegg på bloggene mine.

Nå har jeg begynt å se på One Tree Hill fra starten igjen, og som alltid oppdager jeg masse ny musikk. Dere som liker One Tree Hill vet at det er mye bra musikk der. Mye av yndlingsmusikken min har jeg fått fra denne serien.

For eksempel da jeg hørte Headlights, og ble hekta på Dispatch. Anna Nalick hørte jeg også først på One Tree Hill. Jacks Mannequin også. Here comes a regular lastet jeg ned etter at Ellie fortalte Peyton om at dette er hennes 'happy-song'.

http://blog.nj.com/ledgerentertainment/2007/07/large_dispatch.jpghttp://i25.tinypic.com/33mueeq.jpghttp://images.fanpop.com/images/image_uploads/Jack-s-Mannequin-jack-27s-mannequin-263922_600_330.jpg

Dessuten har jeg fått øynene opp for artister som er med i serien, som Bethany Joy Galeotti, eller Haley som de fleste kjenner henne som. Jeg liker også noe av musikken til Bryan Greenberg, som spiller Jake. I det siste har jeg faktisk hørt litt på Kate Voegele (Mia) også, selv om jeg ikke likte henne noe særlig i starten.

Sånn ellers kan jeg nevne sanger som I shall believe og The Freshmen. Nydelige sanger begge to. Og det er sikkert enda flere artister som jeg har oppdaget via One Tree Hill som jeg glemmer å nevne her.

Into the ocean

Denne sangen er så søt! Jeg kan relatere veldig til den noen ganger. Det er Blue October som har den, enjoy! PS: Jeg kan ikke legge ved den ordentlige musikkvideoen, for fikk ikke takk i HTML-koden. Den ligger på youtube ;)



I'm just a normal boy
That sank when I fell overboard
My ship would leave the country
But I'd rather swim ashore

Without a life vest I'd be stuck again
Wish I was much more masculine
Maybe then I could learn to swim
Like 'fourteen miles away'

Now floating up and down
I spin, colliding into sound
Like whales beneath me diving down
I'm sinking to the bottom of my
Everything that freaks me out
The lighthouse beam has just run out
I'm cold as cold as cold can be...
be...

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up, take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion, yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now come down
Let the rain come down

Where is the coastguard?
I keep looking each direction
For a spotlight, give me something
I need something for protection
Maybe flotsam, junk will do just fine
the jetsam sunk, I'm left behind
I'm treading for my life, believe me
(How can I keep up this breathing?)

Not knowing how to think
I scream aloud, begin to sink
My legs and arms are broken down
With envy for the solid ground
I'm reaching for the life within me
How can one man stop his ending
I thought of just your face
Relaxed, and floated into space

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves up, take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion, yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now come down
Let the rain come down

Now waking to the sun
I calculate what I had done
Like jumping from the bow, yeah
Just to prove I knew how, yeah
It's midnight's late reminder of
The loss of her, the one I love
My will to quickly end it all
Set front row in my need to fall

Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean, end it all
Into the ocean...end it all

[Zayra]
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)

I want to swim away but don't know how
Sometimes it feels just like I'm falling in the ocean
Let the waves take me down
Let the hurricane set in motion, yeah
Let the rain of what I feel right now come down
Let the rain come down

Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
(Into space)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)
(I thought of just your face)
Into the ocean (goodbye) end it all (goodbye)

Cornerstone

Jeg har aldri hørt på Artic Monkeys før, men da jeg hørte denne sangen på radioen ble jeg helt forelska! Jeg elsker teksten og at det er en kjærlighetssang som er litt orginal. Anbefaler at de som ikke har hørt den hører på den nå :)



Thought I saw you in the battleship
But it was only a look a like
She was nothing but a vision trick
Under the warning light
She was close, close enough to be your ghost
But my chances turned to toast
When I asked her if I could call her your name

I thought I saw you in the rusty hook
Huddled up in wicker chair
I wandered up for a closer look
And kissed who ever was sitting there

She was close, and she held me very tightly
Till I asked awfully politely, please
Can I call you her name

And I elongated my lift home,
Yeah I let him go the long way round
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

I thought I saw you in the parrots beak
Messing with the smoke alarm
It was too loud for me to hear her speak
And she had a broken arm

It was close, so close that the walls were wet
And she wrote it out in letraset
No you can't call me her name

Tell me where's your hiding place
I'm worried I'll forget your face
And I've asked everyone
And I'm beginning to think I imagined you all along

I elongated my lift home
Yeah I let him go the long way round
I smelt your scent on the seatbelt
And kept my shortcuts to myself

I saw your sister in the cornerstone
On the phone to the middle man
When I saw that she was on her own
I thought she might understand
She was close, well you couldn't get much closer
She said I'm really not supposed to but yes,
You can call me anything you want

Here comes a regular

Som veldig mange av sangene jeg elsker, fikk jeg denne fra One Tree Hill. Jeg var hekta fra første gang jeg hørte den, og får fortsatt frysninger når jeg setter den på. Enjoy!



Well a person can work up a mean mean thirst
after a hard day of nothin' much at all
Summer's passed, it's too late to cut the grass
There ain't much to rake anyway in the fall

And sometimes I just ain't in the mood
to take my place in back with the loudmouths
You're like a picture on the fridge that's never stocked with food
I used to live at home, now I stay at the house

And everybody wants to be special here
They call your name out loud and clear
Here comes a regular
Call out your name
Here comes a regular
Am I the only one here today?

Well a drinkin' buddy that's bound to another town
Once the police made you go away
And even if you're in the arms of someone's baby now
I'll take a great big whiskey to ya anyway

Everybody wants to be someone's here
Someone's gonna show up, never fear
'cause here comes a regular
Call out your name
Here comes a regular
Am I the only one who feels ashamed?

Kneeling alongside old Sad Eyes
He says opportunity knocks once then the door slams shut
All I know is I'm sick of everything that my money can buy
The fool who wastes his life, God rest his guts

First the lights, then the collar goes up, and the wind begins to blow
Turn your back on a pay-you-back, last call
First the glass, then the leaves that pass, then comes the snow
Ain't much to rake anyway in the fall

Into my arms

Denne sangen er nydelig. Så mye mer er det ikke å si.



I don't believe in an interventionist God
But I know, darling, that you do
But if I did I would kneel down and ask Him
Not to intervene when it came to you
Not to touch a hair on your head
To leave you as you are
And if He felt He had to direct you
Then direct you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I don't believe in the existence of angels
But looking at you I wonder if that's true
But if I did I would summon them together
And ask them to watch over you
To each burn a candle for you
To make bright and clear your path
And to walk, like Christ, in grace and love
And guide you into my arms

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

And I believe in Love
And I know that you do too
And I believe in some kind of path
That we can walk down, me and you
So keep your candlew burning
And make her journey bright and pure
That she will keep returning
Always and evermore

Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms, O Lord
Into my arms

Bright lights

Okei, jeg vet at det har blitt en del Placebo i det siste, men man kan ikke forvente annet, de er tross alt yndlingsbandet mitt. Denne sangen heter Bright Lights, og er helt nydelig. Jeg har forelska meg helt i den i det siste. Anbefaler virkelig at du hører på den!



Cast your mind back to the days,
When I pretend' I was OK.
I had so very much to say,
About my crazy livin'.
Now that I've stared into the void,
So many people, I've annoyed.
I have to find a middle way,
A better way of livin'.

So I haven't given up,
That all my choices, my good luck...
Appear to go and get me stuck,
In an open prison.
Now I am tryin' to break free,
In a state of empathy.
Find the true and enemy,
Eradicate this prison.

No-one take it away from me,
And no-one can tear it apart.
'Cause a heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.

A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
No-one take it away from me,
No-one can tear it apart.
Maybe ' an elaborate fantasy,
But it's the perfect place place to start.

'Cause a heart that hurts,
Is a heart that works.
A heart that hurts,
Is a heart that... works.

Ironic

Jeg elsker denne sangen. Det er Alanis Morisette som har den, hvis du lurte. Om du ikke har hørt den før, gjør det :)



An old man, turned 98
He won the lottery, and died the next day
It's a black fly in your chardonnay
It's a death row pardon, two minutes too late
And isn't it ironic?
Don't you think?

It's like rain, on your wedding day
It's a free ride, when you've already paid
It's the good advice, that you just didn't take
And who would've thought? It figures

Mr. Play-It-Safe, was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase, and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life, to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought, "Well isn't this nice?"
And isn't it ironic?
Don't you think?

It's like rain, on your wedding day
It's a free ride, when you've already paid
It's the good advice, that you just didn't take
And who would've thought? It figures

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything's okay and everything's going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out
When you think everything's gone wrong and everything blows up in your face

A traffic jam, when you're already late
A "No smoking" sign, on your cigarette break
It's like ten thousand spoons, when all you need is a knife
It's meeting the man of my dreams, and then meeting his beautiful wife
And isn't it ironic?
Don't you think?
A little too ironic?
Yeah I really do think

It's like rain, on your wedding day
It's a free ride, when you've already paid
It's the good advice, that you just didn't take
And who would've thought?
It figures

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
And life has a funny, funny way, of helping you out
Helping you out

The never-ending why

Nok en sang fra mitt yndlinsband Placebo. Dette er absolutt en av favorittsangene mine fra det nye albumet, selv om jeg fortsatt liker den gamle musikken best. Check it out!



The atom will implode
The fragile kingdom fall
The tremor becomes a quake
There's a body in the lake

And as the two of us rebel
Damn you all to hell
I wonder if that's all there is

Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers to the never-ending why

The sound of silence grows
As spiders kissing fly
And the tumor becomes a rhyme
But the kids are doing fine

And as the two of us rebel
And damn you all to hell
I wonder if that's all there is

Time will help you through
But it doesn't have the time
To give you all the answers to the never-ending why

Peeping Tom

Kjempesøt sang av Placebo. Håper de spiller denne når jeg ser de i Stockholm 13 November. (Og eyy, sjekk ut Cinema Paradiso på filmen under!)



Careful not to fall
Have to climb your wall
cause youre the one who makes me feel much taller than you are
Im just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Problems with the blues nothing left to loose

Im weightless
Im bare
Im faithless
Im scared

Face that fills a hole
Stole my broken soul
One that makes me seem to feel much taller than you are
Im just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Troubles with the gear
Nothing left to fear

Im weightless
Im bare
Im faithless
Im scared

Im weightless
Im bare
Im faithless
Im scared

With every bet I lost
Every trick I tossed
Youre still the one
Who makes me feel much taller than you are
Im just a peeping tom
On my own for far too long
Problems with the blues
Nothing left to lose

Im weightless
Im bare
Im faithless
Im scared

Im weightless
Im bare
Im faithless
Im scared

Im weightless
Im bare
Im faithless
Im scared

Im scared
Im scared
Im scared
Im scared

Headlights

Det er denne sangen som er på toppen av min "mest spilte"-liste på iTunes. Og det er det en grunn for. Jeg elsker den sangen.



Headlights
Highways
Your life collides with mine

Leavin' our shoes behind
We cross the water
Our words flow
From mouth to mouth
Like fish seeking dark places
The mist covers our traces covers our faces

Headlights
Highways
Your life collides with mine

We're steppin' into shelter
Movin' out of shadow
We made some wrong moves
Along the way
Oh we might have strayed
Will I forget your face
And your fluid gait
Or will I stare into the stillness
This is where I miss you

So long
To what's done
How come we've gone
So much time's been wasted
So many thoughts been lost on you

Headlights
Highways
Your life collides with mine

Cold wind rushes
Down on my face
Smoke heats the black throat
of the chimney

The door is open
Come on inside...

Drink me

Denne sangen, Drink me av Anna Nalick, er en sang jeg er veldig glad i. Den er Alice in Wonderland-inspirert, og man kan tolke den på mange forskjellige måter. Du får høre den og se hva du tenker.



Talk about the weather
Will you miss me ever?
Lately I'm obsessed
And I need the rest
I hope that you're impressed

But she's so pretty, I'm jealous
And she's lost like Alice
In a painted past
In a looking glass
I see me looking back

I'll take another, Drink Me, baby
Slowly, I'll disappear
And wear my life like a barbed wire necklace
So let's play truth or dare

So you're a fan of Coltrane
I wanna be Kurt Cobain
When the truth gets scary
I'll take my gin and sherry
And some Drink Me they'll be
Plath and Joplin with verse writing suiciders
Kennedy and Monroe come to see my rock show
I'll be there in the front row

I'll take another, Drink Me, baby
Slowly, I'll disappear
And wear my life like a barbed wire necklace
So let's play truth or dare

And I won't be around to play your games
There will come a day when you won't know my name
And I'll get smaller with
Every swallow you'll
Wait tomorrow and things won't be the same

Talk about the weather
Will you miss me ever?
Lately I'm obsessed
And I need the rest

I hope that you're impressed
Cuz I need the rest
And my head's a mess
I need the rest
I need the rest
I need the rest
