Songs of My Life: April 2012

April was a short list but a good list.

“Baby Ain’t My Name” by Grace Askew
Grace has a haunting voice, constantly sad and longing, but a beautiful voice. I really love the way her voice sounds in this song and I really just love the title. Listen to it below

“Face to the Floor” by Chevelle
I thought this was new Tool when I first heard it. I’ve always been a fan of Chevelle and I just dig this song. Watch the video below.

“Better Than Today” by Kylie Minogue
It surprises most people that I am such a huge Kylie fan. I own everything she’s recorded…yep, in that “Locomation” CD. I really like the lyrics and the beat to the song. “You’ve got to feel it, see it, know how much you need it. What’s the point in living if you don’t take a chance? You’ve got to use it, lose it, know that you still do it.”

“Oysters and Pearls” by Jimmy Buffett
One of my favorite songs by Mr. Buffett. I love the lyrics: “Some people love to lead Some refuse to dance Some people play it safely Others take a chance Still, it’s all a mystery This place we call the world Where most live as oysters While some become pearl.”

“Living in the Moment” by Jason Mraz
Another, always been a fan of artist. This is from his new CD “Love is a Four Letter World” and though I do like the CD, this song is the best song in my opinion. I always say “the time is now” and I’ve learned to appreciate the moment at hand and not think about the past or the what ifs of the future. This song captures that feeling. “Living in the moment. Living my life. Easy and breezy. With peace in my mind. I got peace in my heart. Got peace in my soul. Wherever I’m going I’m already home. Living in the moment.”
Watch the video from his show in Bali 2011

“Not There Yet” by Eric Hutchinson
This song is another reminder of how far we’ve come along and how far we still have to go. And I just love the opening lyrics “I don’t wanna work anymore. I just wanna live instead. Everyone is saying I’m all grown up. I’ve come a long way but I’m not there yet.”
