MY SPEAKER

JASON MRAZ - 1000 THINGS


(this is what live music should sound like all the time!)


Mraz is most famous for his often poetic, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, pun-filled lyrics, and is inspired by hip-hop, rock, jazz as well as a number of other musical influences. It's feel good music and he's the best artist to listen to when your in one of those moods to relax. I love his style of music. Unique above all.

His last album, "We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things." is must have for your CD collection.

FROM 'YE TO FRAY....

As I've noted on many other posts, Kanye is my favorite artist and is very inspiring to me. The band, The Fray is another musical talent I love to listen to....

Best case scenario?
THE FRAY - HEARTLESS (COVER)


...crack cocaine to my brain!

CRACKKK!!!

Kanye does it again, with the video for "Welcome to Heartbreak" feat. Kid Cudi. Although this isn't the next single, it is a work in progress but the production of it is so artistic its unbelievable. This man is an artist in every aspect whether it comes to fashion, music, producing. Anything he puts his hand on is raw creativity at its finest. One of the greatest artisans of our generatio people. Get with it!



NOTE: if you thought the video was bad quality or thought there was something wrong with your screen too, its just the video. I thought I got a bad copy but its just Ye giving you goosebumps visually.

MY SPEAKER - BRAND NEW/DEGAUSSER

"I THINK THIS STAYING UP, IS EXACTLY WHAT I NEED"

The song "Degausser" by Brand New is probably my most favorite lyrical song that I have ever heard in my entire life (23 years and then some). There's a million interpretations to the lyrics of this song but the bottom line is that these lyrics are chock full to the rim with metaphors! The whole CD (The Devil And God Are Raging Inside Me) is crackkk!!!



Degausser - Brand New


goodbye to sleep,
I think this staying up is exactly what I need
well take apart your head
take apart the counting, and the flock it has bred

goodbye to love,
well it's a ride that will push you up
right against the wall
take apart your head
chew it up and swallow it

but I bet that you're running
I found sleep in the alkaline
I can't shake this little feeling
I'll never get anything right

goodbye you liar,
well you sipped from the cup but you don't own up to anything
then you think you will inspire
take apart your head
(and I wish I could inspire)
take apart the demon, in the attic to the left

(goodbye my love)
but i bet that you're running
(goodbye my love)
I found sleep in the alkaline
(goodbye my love)
I can't shake this little feeling
(goodbye my love)
I'll never say anything right

I'm on my own, I'll never say anything right
I'm on my own, I'll never say anything right
I'm on my own, I'll never say anything right
I'm on my own...

well take me, take me back to your bed
I love you so much that it hurts my head
say "I don't mind you under my skin,
I'll let the bad parts in, the bad parts in."
when we were made we were set apart
life is a test and I get bad marks
now some saint got the job of writing down my sins
the storm is coming, the storm is coming in

but I bet that you're running
I found sleep in the alkaline
I can't shake this little feeling
I never did anything right

I'm on my own, I'll never did anything right
I'm on my own...

take me, take me back to your bed
I love you so much that it hurts my head
I don't mind you under my skin
I'll let the bad parts in, the bad parts in
well you're my favourite bird and when you sing
I really do wish that you'd wear my ring
no matter what they say, I am still the king
and now the storm is coming, the storm is coming in....


...goosebumps
