Music & Lyrics

You are not your job
And you are not the clothes you wear
You are the words that leave your mouth
So speak up, speak up loud
 Call Me Ishmael by Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly

I rediscovered Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly this morning and Call Me Ishmael really struck a chord with me for some reason. It's funny, you can hear a song you've heard a hundred times before, and all of a sudden it has a profound effect on you. I suppose it depends where you are in your life. As someone who really pays attention to lyrics, I appreciate when they're actually clever, or mean something. 

In a few weeks I will get time
To realise it's right before my eyes
And I can take it if it's what I want to do
What You Know by Two Door Cinema Club

But no one's yet explained to me exactly what's so great
About slaving 50 years away on something that you hate
About meekly shuffling down the path of mediocrity
Well if that's your road then take it, but it's not the road for me
Photosynthesis by Frank Turner

Evidently there's a theme within the kinds of songs I'm listening to at the moment. I think that's the nice thing about music though; there seems to be songs that can relate to almost any situation. They say things that you can't quite verbalise sometimes. They make you feel things. What a great gift to have. 

Song of the Day: Any of the 3 I've mentioned. Take your pick, they're all great.
