Dancing Buckets

So I'm one of those annoying bloggers that makes you listen to her music. These are just some amazing songs. I thought I would tell you a little bit about them. I just set it to come on in a random order, so I can't really list them in the right order here. But I think you're smart. You can win this matching game :)

First let's talk about "Put Your Record On". This is one of my power songs. It is all about how we are amazing, and we can dance and sing, and not care about what anyone thinks. Well, atleast that's how I see it. One, I just like it. It makes me happy. Two, it is SO true! Why do we worry about what others think of us? I mean, we need to try not to be jerks, but why should I care if you like... my shoes (which by the way are super cute)? I'm me. Take it or leave it. I know I'm not perfect, but you can love me anyway, cause I love you. So there.

Next we have "Goodbye Waves and Driveways". This song is sad. But I think it's beautiful. I know, he gets a little into it at the end, and at least 2 of my sisters L6 and L7 really don't like that. But it just has so much heart in it. Granted, it's a breaking heart, but it is beautiful nonetheless. It also has a great message it in. The singer knows that they are messing up. But if they would stop being so selfish and really listen to the other person, they could fix it. There are some very poetic lyrics such as "We both know there's so much love clenched in our fists" or "That just to say I'm right, you're wrong, we both lose to win". Deep.

Another sad song is "Chasing Pavements". Now, I just love this lady's voice. She is from England, and when she talks about chasing pavements, she is talking about running down a sidewalk. The story behind the song is: she had just gotten in a fight with a boyfriend. As she was running down the sidewalk (pavement) she was trying to figure out what to do. Does she give up on the relationship? Should she keep trying, even though she doesn't know the end result? Good questions. I don't know the answer, but I'm not there anyway. I know, not so happy, but I still like it.

Lastly, (on a side note, I love that word) we have "A Beautiful Mess". This is so sappy. It kind of relates to "Put Your Records On" in that, he loves this girl for her idiosyncrasies. Sometimes they fight, but he loves her. Way to be dude! No one is perfect, so we need to love people for everything they are. And we have another amazing voice.

So there you have it. That's my playlist. Not that you really wanted to learn about these songs, but you didn't have to read this. Unless, there is some random gunman making you do it, cause he's illiterate and he's madly inlove with me so he MUST know what I have written. If that is the case, you made the right choice. But sir... you don't really know who I am, and stop threatening my friends. It's never going to work. But you have a sweet spirit. You're a mighty fine carrot. You are just not my rutabaga.
