The Man Who Can't Be Moved

Going back to the corner where I first saw you
Gonna camp in my sleeping bag I'm not gonna move
Got some words on cardboard, got your picture in my hand
Saying, "If you see this girl can you tell her where I am?" Read more about The Man Who Can't Be Moved

 

River, By Joni Mitchell

Though generally thought of as a song for the Christmas season, Joni Mitchell's River gives comfort and empathy all year long and through any season of our lives. We don't have to hit the road or board a jet plane. All we need do to get away for a while is put on our headphones and spend a little time with Joni. Or with Sarah's version below. :)

Cover of I Will Follow You Into the Dark, by Daniella Andrade

Lyrics by Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie

Love of mine, someday you will die
But I'll be close behind and I'll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight, waiting for the hint of a spark Read more about Cover of I Will Follow You Into the Dark, by Daniella Andrade

 

Always Remember Us This Way - Lady Gaga

That Arizona sky burning in your eyes
You look at me and, babe, I wanna catch on fire
It's buried in my soul like California gold
You found the light in me that I couldn't find

So when I'm all choked up
And I can't find the words
Every time we say goodbye
Baby, it hurts
When the sun goes down
And the band won't play
I'll always remember us this way Read more about Always Remember Us This Way - Lady Gaga

 

Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper - Shallow (A Star Is Born)

What a gift it was to see this film at the theatre.

Lyrics:

[Verse 1: Bradley Cooper]
Tell me somethin' girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more
Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for?

[Refrain: Bradley Cooper]
I'm fallin'
In all the good times
I find myself longin' for change
And in the bad times I fear myself Read more about Lady Gaga, Bradley Cooper - Shallow (A Star Is Born)

 

Grace | Rag'N'Bone Man

Said I loved you without hesitation
So easy for you to break my foolish heart
Now I wonder if you ever speak my name
Will I always be defined by my mistakes?

In the eyes of a saint I'm a stranger
We're all trying to find a way
At the death of every darkness there's a morning
Though we all try
We all try
We're all one step from grace Read more about Grace | Rag'N'Bone Man

 

Let Me Go

Originally posted in November of 2014

Sometimes, you hear a song that your soul connects with from the first listen. It's a lovely experience, really, and last night, I put an app called Shazam to good use in identifying the name of this tune that grabbed me within seconds.

Hero, by Family of the Year, feels like it was written for many of us during our coming of age years. Sometimes, you feel immense weight on your heart, and you just want to be free of worry and expectations.

I'm told that this song is a part of the soundtrack for a film that I'd really like to see - it's called Boyhood, and was shot over 12 years by Richard Linklater, chronicling the story of a boy and his family from the time he was 6. Remarkably, Richard cast the actors of this film when the lead was 6 years old, and they gathered once a year to continue shooting. Read more about Let Me Go
