I read a post just recently by Sparkling Gnome about 10 songs that kick start her creativity. I haven't had a chance to hear what those songs are as I never know the name and artist of any song, however it got me thinking about music. I learnt the piano as a child, and sang, and played percussion instruments. But above all else I love to sing (this does not translate to being any good though!). My teacher was quite old fashioned and I never sang anything modern, but as I wasn't allowed to listen to the radio as a child, I never felt I was missing out.
I think that because I like to sing I hear the lyrics to songs where others may only hear the music. This means that there are some great songs out there that I would listen to if the lyrics were nicer! I still don't listen to the radio much as it was never a habit that I developed, but recently I keep hearing the same song every time the radio is on no matter where I am. The first time I heard it I cried. It is like a very sad poem put to music. This morning I heard it while I was sitting at my computer at work, so I googled one line of the lyrics to find out who was singing it. It is called "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri, you may already know which song I mean :-) I tried to just copy the lyrics here for you to read, but I can't find a copyable version and I don't have the time to type them out. So here is a link to the song :-)
I wonder why I keep hearing it???
Randomness over for now, sorry if this is of no interest to you but I just felt like saying it :-)
