SOTW #35

This week was the start of school. I went through some crisis with classes, registration, and financial aid. However, I prevailed! I heard some devastating news about Dolores O’riordan. The main singer and iconic voice of the Cranberries has passed away.

So recently I’ve been reminiscing two of my most favorite songs from The Cranberries

The Cranberries – Forever Yellow Skies

The Cranberries – Dreams

I shocked me to hear this news. Her voice has always been one of my inspirations to sing. She was a fashion icon- a beautiful musician and soul. Her music brings so much nostalgia when I was little. I remember being in the car and my mother playing their songs on the radio. I remember getting my first iPod and my Dad putting songs by The Cranberries.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

I haven’t written a poem in a long time. I thought about this one last night so I decided to write it down today. It didn’t come out like the first draft in my head but I think I got the idea down.

 

To make my colors change

You have to see to gradient

the fine lines of my pores

and the rouge to my pupils.

 

You make my colors change

what was once purple is now blue

what was once red is now green

and black to white.

 

Making my colors change-

I am a different person

I think I gave some of myself

to become something new

 

My colors changed from

newspaper to a carnival

the popcorn butter and the cotton candy twists

that satisfy the never-ending taste buds.

With the stars serving the neon lights

that change the mood over time.

Damn. I can’t believe I completely forgot about this, but after all, it was the holidays. For my songs of the week, I’ve been going back to a lot of my favorites. This is what I got for you…

Passing Out Pieces by Mac Demarco

This has always been a favorite of mine, the words really mean a lot. The video is weird, but what isn’t weird anymore.

Flamming Hot Cheetos by Clario

She’s one of the inspirations for me to start making music.

Fucking Young by Tyler the Creator 

I hope you enjoy these songs! You’ll be hearing from me soon.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.

THE SHINS IN CONCERT feat. Girlpool and Baio

This is late but…

Something pretty surreal happened to me. This was actually a few weeks ago but I didn’t have time to write about it. On November 12 my boyfriend and I  went to see The Shins. Yes, the band that has been a part of my life since I can remember. I would have never thought that I would be able to see them. I always worried that they would break up or die off before I could ever see them. But, I can now scratch off The Shins on my concert bucket list. This was an experience that was incomprehensible. My boyfriend and I are such nerds when it comes to James Mercer and The Shins, it is actually the main band that brought us together.

Now when I first bought the tickets I didn’t really pay attention to the date. I didn’t care, I wanted to go see The Shins. It wasn’t until the week that I realized that it started after a choir concert I had to perform in. however, by luck, a friend offered to drive us to the venue after the choir concert. And by chance, we got to Emo’s at the perfect time before people started to crow in. We got front row.

Before we saw The Shins, Girlpool performed. I remember that I’ve heard of them before but I’d never thought I would get the chance to actually hear them in person for the first time.

SOTW #30

Hello! The beginning of this week was pretty stressful. I still have one more assignment left to do and hopefully, I can get it done without burning a hole in my brain. I meant to post yesterday but time was too precious. What I’ve been listening too lately are three artists. Two of them I discovered not too long ago.

Blue Coupe by Twin Peaks

I know this was like one of their first top five songs, but this is a really good one. This is a feel-good song.

Next song is…actually a collective. It’s a whole album by…

Triathalon with their album Nothing Bothers Me

Next is a song by Sufjan Stevens 

Mystery of Love

I hope you enjoy these songs! I’ve been so stressed lately, these songs sure do help tone it down.

Give it a listen, give music a chance.
