#WhereIsTheLove … #BlackEyedPeas … #WhySoMuchHate

Where Is The Love? When I heard the new version of The Black Eyed Peas I started to cry! Why? Because the lyrics describe exactly what is on my mind, what is in my heart. I have goosebumps when I listen to this song! I am wondering every single day of my life when I watch the world that we live in: Where the hell is the love? Why can’t we just love each other? Why so much hate? Why so much discrimination?

Why So Much Hate? 😦

This song has powerful lyrics, this song talks the truth about our world. I was on Facebook today reading comments from random people about this song and I was surprised and disappointed to see how many people completely missed the message of this new version. Comments like: I liked better the older version! made me sad. This song is not only a new version, it is a new message because it is based on our reality.

I am scared seeing the world in which my children grow up! I am freaked out thinking that so much racism, so much discrimination, so much hate, so much killing is happening today! Some people get mad with me when I say that I can’t accept hateful comments when my kids are present but the thing is that I want to protect them as much as I can. There will come the time when they will see for themselves all the bad things in this world, I don’t want them to grow up thinking that racism, discrimination, hate, killing is normal. Because it is not!

#ILoveMusic … #Sia #Unstoppable

I love music! A lot! Music makes me feel so many deep emotions! Music makes me feel sexy, powerful, sad, happy and even unstoppable (kinda). I am not the kind that listens a song for the beat. I listen a song for the lyrics and what they make me feel. I am not the kind that downloads music for free, I buy music because I want my favourite artists to keep on making me feel these amazing things.

One of my favourite singers is Sia. Her songs…are so full of emotions…emotions that I only share with the world here, on my blog. I can’t talk about these things, I just feel them. I can say them out loud, it feels strange. But when I write them, they make so much sense. To me anyways. Sia…what a great singer! Her songs are so powerful, so emotional. There is not one song from her that I didn’t absolutely adored. There is not one song that did not make me feel such strong things that I have tears in my eyes. I play her music on high volume and I can’t get enough of it. One of the songs that is on my mind all the time these days is Unstoppable. This song…the lyrics…wow…just wow. Exactly how I feel, from the beginning to the end.

My favourite part of the song? This one says everything to me and about me:

Break down, only alone I will cry out now
You’ll never see what’s hiding out
Hiding out deep down, yeah, yeah
I know, I’ve heard that to let your feelings show
Is the only way to make friendships grow
But I’m too afraid now, yeah, yeah

 There is nothing more to say…this is perfection to me. I’ll let you listen to this song and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

#Music is such an inspiring thing…Emeli Sande – My Kind of Love

I love music! I often play my favourite songs, over and over again before I go to bed. Sometimes I fall asleep with my headphones on, I’m not sure that’s a good thing, 🙂 , but music, the right kind of music is so inspiring and…relaxing.

I don’t like any kind of music. Actually I am a bit picky, but when I like a song, it’s more than like, it’s love! I play the same song until I get so tired of it that I can’t listen to it for a while. 😀 But there are some songs that no matter how much I listen to them, I just never get tired. Some songs are really inspiring and they make me feel so many things that I want to live those feelings for ever and ever. One of those songs is Emeli Sande – My Kind of Love. 

The lyrics of this song really touch me! The only thing is that I didn’t know why, until today. I had some time for myself so I started to play my favourite songs. This song came along and next thing you know I had it on repeat and I was singing to myself, in front of the mirror. And then, I became very emotional and I realized that I was crying. Why?! I was feeling the lyrics, deep into my heart; I was singing this song for…me! And I realized that in my worst moments, I feel my kind of love! The love that only I can give to myself! The love that I should give to myself in order to be able to have other people love me. The lyrics of this song can be interpreted in so many ways, and YOU can decide what this song means to you! Up to now, this is one of my favourite, number one songs!

I can’t buy your love, don’t even wanna try.
Sometimes the truth won’t make you happy, still I’m not gonna lie.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

I know I’m far from perfect, nothin’ like your entourage
I can’t grant you any wishes, I won’t promise you the stars.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

Cause when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

And when you’re crying out.
When you fall and then can’t pick your happy off the ground
When the friends you thought you had haven’t stuck around.
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

You won’t see me at the parties, I guess I’m just no fun.
I won’t be turning up the radio singing, “Baby You’re The One.”
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

I know sometimes I get angry, and I say what I don’t mean.
I know I keep my heart protected, far away from my sleeve.
But don’t ever question if my heart beats only for you, it beats only for you.

Cause when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

And when you’re crying out.
When you’ve fallen and can’t pick your happy off the ground
When the friends you thought you had haven’t stuck around.
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

And when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

And when you’re crying out.
When you’ve fallen and can’t pick your happy off the ground
When the friends you thought you had haven’t stuck around.
That’s when you feel my kind of love.
‘Cause when you’ve given up.
When no matter what you do it’s never good enough.
When you never thought that it could ever get this tough,
That’s when you feel my kind of love.

#MusicReview…Nicole Scherzinger – Big Fat Lie

Some artists are not know by everybody. Others are known just for their looks or because at one point they were part of a hit band that at one moment were doing their thing and they were grabbing attention not necessarily because of the quality of their music. One of these artists, in my opinion, is Nicole Scherzinger. She was part of The Pussycat Dolls. 🙂 However I must say that I do like her voice and I do think that besides her looks she can definitely sing.

I was always a fan of them, actually I recently bought two, yes 2 🙂 of their albums. Maybe some of their songs are superficial but many of them are romantic and even inspiring. Or that is what I think anyways.

Nicole Scherzinger is now an artist on her own. Its been some years that The Pussycat Dolls don’t exist anymore but she is there, doing her own thing. And yes, I bought her album as well, Big Fat Lie. I am all for buying the music of the artists you love, otherwise how are they supposed to be rewarded for their work? On her album there are a few songs that really touched my heart as I find myself in the lyrics of these songs. One of them is – Big Fat Lie -. I am not even close to be Nicole, however I do feel sometimes that I must lie the world around me. To hide myself from who I really am, to be someone that people want to see and accept. I will leave you with her song below. Check it out, listen to the lyrics and think about it. 🙂 Enjoy!
