Now Playing: Slow Burn By Kacey Musgraves

I heard this song for the very first time in a very long time yesterday and I forgot just how good this song is, it used to be one of my favorites to listen to, I hadn’t heard it in a while, but i’m glad that I was curious enough to revisit it and hear it again!! Kacey delivers this song so beautifully, I mean she literally takes her time to sing every lyric of the song going with the theme of it very well, I listened to it about 3 times today in one sitting within the same hour…seriously the lyrics are probably one of my favorites and i’ve listened to a lot of songs, if you asked me to name my top five favorite songs with the best lyrics this would probably be in the top five, it’d be pretty high on a list anyway!

Now i’m going to be honest here…..i’ve not really heard a lot of Kacey Musgraves songs, i’ve only heard a hand full of her songs, but she’s got a very unique voice and the songs that I have heard are really good, Follow Your Arrow, Rainbow, I even love her version of All Is Found from the Frozen 2 soundtrack, I like it a lot actually, Slow burn though, there’s just something about that song, I remember when I first heard it and in the moment I thought “I can really feel these lyrics” like I felt some kind of connection with them and I would listen to it constantly, I just felt it spoke volumes, if you’ve ever heard it you’ll understand what I mean by that!

If you never heard it before and you decide to give it a listen, you’ll find it right away, this song is literally about enjoying things at a slower pace, taking things in as they come and being okay with being a bit of a slow burner, I consider myself to be that as well if i’m being honest here, if you really think about it….this song is quite fitting with where we all are in life at the moment with the pandemic still going on, it’s not all the way done and it’s not going to be all the way done for a good while, but in some cases it’s getting there, but in others it’s still got a long way to go…..but that aside

This song is a really nice song to sit back and relax to, especially when you feel things starting to become a little overwhelming within the day or week even, it gives you a bit of a reminder that it’s alright to slow things down a bit if you you need to and tells you to embrace taking your time more with things and acknowledge small things around you!!

It’s even got it’s own witty and fun lyrics to it, one of my favorites being the opening line “Born in a hurry, always late, haven’t been early since 88′ I love that line, it’s like she’s making light of herself saying the last time she was early to anything was when she was born and now she just always running late for everything, I like songs like that, where the artist make slight fun of themselves, because their giving you a side to them that they probably don’t share often so when they add those little moments they’re letting you in on a secret part of them which is nice!!

You don’t always get that from artists, so when you do you feel like you’re apart of something which is one of the best feelings you can have……but Slow Burn is just a really nice song, Kacey really does perform it well and whether I listen to it all the time or every so often I think it’ll always be one of favorites to look for, hit play and just enjoy it, possibly along side some coffee, tea or while in nature, it goes well with that!!

If you’re into giving it a listen you can listen to it here: Slow Burn you can also search it up on Youtube or any other music streaming platforms that you have, you might even have the CD which works too, whatever you have do give it a listen it’s worth it!!

Almost A Year (July 1, 2019 Entry)

So this summer is doing some speed by’s alright, we’ve finished with June and now we’re in the month of July, it’s insane how quick that’s gone, surprising, no, it tends to always happen that way, but it’s not going to stop us from saying ” Woah what the….that was quick” every time….

In a few more days it’ll be a year since creating this blog, how crazy is that huh!? If you were to ask me how I feel about it, well for one I wouldn’t be able to tell you exactly, let’s just say it’s not been easy!! I mean it hasn’t been extremely hard, but it hasn’t been a walk in the park either that’s just my experience with it anyway, i’m sure it’s not always like that for everyone.

I’m not going to really go into my blogging experience just yet, i’d like to wait until we get to a year of it first at least, this is just a small lead up to it. I know, I know, the anticipation right haha (no i’m kidding)

I’ve gotta admit though, i’m feeling a little nervous and anxious, not for the 1 year of blogging coming up or anything, for other reasons that I can’t really wrap my head around at the moment, when it comes to how i’m going to feel with it getting close to a year of blogging however,

I’m curious to know how exactly i’m going to feel that day, will I be anxious, excited or will I not have a specific reaction at all!? That is something we’ll have to wait and find out about won’t we!?

Now i’ve been thinking (it’s actually my specialty) seriously though, i’ve been thinking about ways to where I could make this blog better, not that i’m unhappy with it, I just always feel it could use something else to it, what exactly……that’s a good question actually!! I was thinking maybe a bit more personal or something, you know really let some emotions out, but then I think is that too much, should I not!?

I could also add more interest of things that i’d want to share on here, but I don’t quite know, it’s something i’ll have to really sit and think on, not overly, because I tend to have a habit of getting my brain all worked up because i’m stressing on things way more than I need to…….AS ALWAYS!!

It’s pretty much the story of my life if i’m being honest……anyone else out there feel that way!? Probably…..but anyway, with that I hope you guys are having a good Summer and your enjoying yourselves as well as your day and I hope you’re all doing well too!!

Before I sign off, I wanted to leave you all with a song of the day, I came up with something and was thinking whenever I write entries like this, i’ll add a song at the end so it doesn’t seem so bare, you know!?

Song Of The Day: Rescue By Hunter Hayes

This song is one of my favorites, it’s also one that i’ve been singing to myself again recently, so I thought hey why not share it, it’s a really good song, it’s a country song if you’re alright with that, not only are the lyrics great, but so is the music video for it, it’s quite artsy and inspiring depending on how you look at it……probably could’ve did a summer song to welcome July,

However I chose this song for a reason, it’s the type of song where if you’re feeling a bit low or are going through something, it let’s you know “hey it’s okay, i’m here for you and I understand the way you feel, cause I feel it too sometimes” so if you want to let some emotions out or you’re looking for a bit of comfort or just looking for a new song, it’s there for you!!

Also if you’re wanting to chat about anything, doesn’t have to be anything serious, could be random, feel free to share here, i’ll be more than happy to listen, signing off now, Happy July 1st everyone!! ^_^ (now the 2nd)

All The Love ❤ ❤

Dream Journal: Mystery Song

Dreams we all have them and by dreams i’m talking actual dreams you know the ones, we’re you go to sleep and you soon find yourself in this whole other place or scenery that isn’t always familiar to you, yet you might feel you know it or you might not feel anything at all. Sometimes we’ll just end up finding ourselves wandering around aimlessly somewhere, swimming in the ocean, hey sometimes your dreams won’t make any sense at all.

Sometimes you’re aware you’re dreaming, other times you won’t even notice that you are and so you continue the dream as if you’re part of it all the time, which probably doesn’t make any sense I know, but neither do our dreams at times, why you may ask……..I don’t quite know!? Don’t you just hate how sometimes our dreams can feel and seems so real, yet we know that they aren’t entirely!?

Dreams are quite interesting though, because you can actually learn a lot when it comes to them, we all know that even when we’re asleep that our minds are always awake which is why most of the time we have dreams. Our dreams interpret things from our waking lives into our sleep state, sometimes we get it and sometimes we don’t………majority of our dreams though have hidden meanings to them that most times we’re able to decipher and find out what they actually mean, while other times they’re just pretty random and don’t really have much to them when trying to figure them out.

The reason i’m talking about dreams here is because last night I had one and I don’t know why, but I wanted to talk about it. Now this is a pretty random one so it may not make any sense and i’m not sure if there’s a meaning to it, but I just thought it was interesting and I wanted to share it, it shouldn’t be a long post, but we’ll see…….. i’ll only tell you what I remember from it, but yeah here we go onto my dreamland:

Okay so I remember walking into my moms shop, my mom owns a nail salon, I remember walking inside, not sure how I got there and why I was there, but I was…….anyway so I walked in, there’s two floors I was on the first one, her shop is on the second floor and the first floor is where the other people who work there, do hair. So as I was walking towards her shop, I heard this song and I really liked it, but I never heard it before, but the song sounded like it had already been made in real life, it had this up beat melody and there were lyrics, so this song was pretty much like a full song.

I stopped walking and was trying to figure out what the song was about and really listen to it, I think I was listening to the chorus part of it and as i’m listening to it, I said to myself how the song sounded like it could be like a really nice country song, like the new country you know artists like: Mickey Guyton, Kasey Musgraves, but also people like Sara Evans, Miranda Lambert people like that…….but in my dream I remember saying how the song sounds like it would go well with Sara Evans voice or I think I remember saying another name like Danielle I can’t remember, I do remember Sara Evans though.

Long story short, I was listening to the song that i’ve never heard before, but knowing it sounded very good and oh so real and I remember going to write down the lyrics to the song, well the ones I tried to remember at least, only……….I couldn’t remember the lyrics and in my dream I tried so hard to remember it, but I couldn’t and then in the end I ended up going upstairs to where my mom worked. (End Of Dream) 

When I got up in the morning though, there we’re only a few lines that I got from the dream so I wrote them down, but yeah that dream felt so real and that song sounded like I had listened to it before, but I also knew that I didn’t at the same time, it was mad I tell you. Have you guys ever had dreams like that where you hear this really amazing song fully finished, but when you awake in the morning, you then come to realize that, the song in your dream last night, doesn’t actually exist and that your brain just April fooled you without it being April!?

That’s not right brain……..I actually liked that song, it was good. Let me know if that’s happened to you, anyway I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening.

 

All The Love ❤ ❤

Can’t Get You Out Of My Head (Title Inspired By A Song)

What’s going on in my head you ask!? Nothing much just random tunes playing causing me to sing them out loud, you know stuff like that, we all get that, you know you’re just minding your own business, just doing your best to be as productive as you can and then out of nowhere you’re singing a tune!? Not quite sure where it came from or why that song you’re singing is in your head, but it is and now you’re stuck singing it every few minutes. I know that this is a very random topic, but it was the only topic I could think of, plus I wasn’t sure what else to write about, sooo I chose this to be my blog post for today.

Sometimes you need a little bit of random in your life and lucky for you guys, I can bring a whole lot of random to you, whenever i’m feeling it and today is one of those days, this won’t be a long post I promise, I just wanted to share with you all, the few songs that have been playing in my brain today so I hope you don’t mind me sharing, but anyway let’s get to it shall we!? First let me tell you what band started off…..so yeah, i’m kinda in a debate state of mind with myself trying to figure out what band started it, I feel it was the band PVRIS I told you about, but then another part of me is saying that it was Fall Out Boy, so we’ll just say although I love PVRIS………I’m gonna go with Fall Out Boy, because I had one of their songs in my head the most, plus I think it might’ve been the podcast I listened to earlier that was based around them that kicked started it, soooo yeaaah.

Anyway here are the top songs that we’re stuck in my head today :

  1. Sugar We’re Goin Down & Thnks Fr Th Mmrs By Fall Out Boy
  2. St Patrick By PVRIS
  3. Dirt Road Anthem By Jason Aldean

 

Those we’re the top songs that we’re in my head today, not sure why either of them came to mind, but they did. The one song I was most shocked about me randomly singing though was Jason Aldean’s Dirt Road Anthem, the only reason I was shocked about it was because I hadn’t heard that song in ages, plus I didn’t know if I’d still know it, buut I did which was weird. Sometimes it’s like that where, you think you won’t remember a song especially when you haven’t heard it in a very long time and when you do remember it, it can be very surprising, but yeah that’s pretty much all I wanted to talk about really, if you want to listen to the songs i’ve mentioned, I left the links to them on top for you guys.

Feel free to share if you also had a song or 2 or 3 even which ever, stuck in your brain today or let me know what song constantly enters your mind and just sticks with you like glue on your hands, you know what i’m talking about, no matter how much you try to avoid becoming sticky from that glue, it’ll just always end up happening anyway, it’s like a magnet, but not a magnet. Anyway that is all I have for now, but I hope you all have a goodnight/morning and or evening.

 

All The Love ❤ ❤
