100 days of music day 46 | The First Cut is the Deepest - P.P. Arnold i would have given you all my heart but there’s someone who’s torn it apart and she’s taken just all that i had but if you want, i’ll try to love again
I can’t get this song out of my head. It makes me so happy - the lyrics are beautifully written, and is what I believe is an accurate description of life and love, and how those two are intertwined. This song makes me want to be a better person.
The other day Melor was explaining to us on how when you approach something with love, the relationship, activity, work or whatever you are approaching will be filled with love. And then things are more pleasant, it makes you happy and it makes the people around you happy.
“What you share with the world is what it keeps of you”
A simple reminder that you’re never too small to make a difference, and how you approach something makes all the difference. If you approach something with love and sincerity, and if you share your love and sincerity with the world, that is a legacy you will leave behind.
Linkin Park - Somewhere I Belong, this song is from there second album Meteora. This album still had a similar sound to Hybrid Theory, to me it just has a more mature feeling to it, with it’s song transitions and this overall feeling you get listening to the album as a whole, it is really well rounded and still my favorite album by them today. Lyrics are as follows:
(When this began) I had nothing to say And I get lost in the nothingness inside of me (I was confused) And I let it all out to find That I’m not the only person with these things in mind (Inside of me) But all that they can see the words revealed Is the only real thing that I’ve got left to feel (Nothing to lose) Just stuck, hollow and alone And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own
[Chorus] I wanna heal, I wanna feel what I thought was never real I wanna let go of the pain I’ve felt so long (Erase all the pain till it’s gone) I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m close to something real I wanna find something I’ve wanted all along Somewhere I belong
And I’ve got nothing to say I can’t believe I didn’t fall right down on my face (I was confused) Looking everywhere only to find That it’s not the way I had imagined it all in my mind (So what am I) What do I have but negativity ’Cause I can’t justify the way, everyone is looking at me (Nothing to lose) Nothing to gain, hollow and alone And the fault is my own, and the fault is my own
I will never know myself until I do this on my own And I will never feel anything else, until my wounds are healed I will never be anything till I break away from me I will break away, I’ll find myself today
I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong I wanna heal, I wanna feel like I’m somewhere I belong Somewhere I belong
When I first heard that Depeche Mode had done a cover of a Stooges song, I was nervous. I was a fan of The Stooges long before I was a Depeche Mode fan, and I really love both bands. My first thought was “omg what if I think its awful?!” The idea of one of my favorite bands ruining a song by one of my other favorite bands was horrifying to me. Once I found out which song it was, and listened to it, I was relieved. Listening to Dave Gahan sing more like Iggy Pop was a little odd for me at first, but I still love both versions anyway.
That evening, Castiel calls at half past one, but Dean doesn’t manage to take it until two; they don’t talk about serious business this time, but Dean learns that the freak is already a third into Catch 22 and he tries to get some clues about the Hattie Carroll mystery. The only thing he learns is that it’s because of something related to the real story, not to the song itself. It’s so cryptic that it’s making his head hurt, but he never gave up on a challenge. After Castiel closes the call and he picks the next one, while he compliments some listener for choosing Free’s Fire And Water (because Free are awesome but they’re fucking underrated), he writes Cas called on today’s tiny square in the calendar. Something tells him that it’s truly, truly fucked, but he can’t bring himself to care that much.
The next day, when he finishes his shift, he writes Cas didn’t call on the next tiny square. He does the same thing the next day, too.
Dean’s a late-night DJ on a radio station, and Cas calls in. Feelings and a fantastic taste in music ensue. And it all revolves around the best of Dylan. Enjoy.
