Top Video Tuesday

Yes, my love for music has prevailed! What’s with the name change, you ask?  What happened to Triple Lyric Tuesday?  Simple. I’m trying to take my current creative flow for all its worth.  I just never know when my muse is going to abruptly exit stage left and leave me hanging… But I also can’t stray that far from music nor do I want to go back to ignoring my blog, altogether.

As a compromise, I’ve decided to dedicate every Tuesday to only one amazing artist, rather than three.  I hope the change will be well received, but if not… yeah, I’ll probably do it, anyway. 😀

So, without further ado, here’s one of my most recent findings in the wonderful world of music. Enjoy!

FKA Twigs is already popular, I’m learning, and with that voice, it’s no surprise! I haven’t done any research on her, but it was difficult to choose just one video for her today.  She’s very interpretive and visually compelling.

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Triple Lyric Tuesday

Well looky here, I finally made it to one of my own posts!  Hope you all enjoy this week’s picks for Triple Lyric Tuesday!  Don’t forget to check out their videos links! Happy Tuesday… 😀

“She sees them walking in a straight line, that’s not really her style.
And they all got the same heartbeat, but hers is falling behind.
Nothing in this world could ever bring them down.
Yeah, they’re invincible, and she’s just in the background.
And she says,

“I wish that I could be like the cool kids,
‘Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in.
I wish that I could be like the cool kids, like the cool kids…”

TINIE TEMPAH ft. ERIC TURNER

TinieTempahandEricTurnerWritten In The Stars

“They say the money is the root to the evilest ways
But have you ever been so hungry it keeps you awake, mate?
Now my hunger would leave them amazed – Great!
It feels like a long time coming, fam
Since the day I thought of that cunning plan
One day I had a dream I tried to chase it
But I wasn’t going nowhere, running man!
I knew that maybe someday I would understand
Try to change a tenner to a hundred grand
Everyone’s a kid that no one cares about
You just gotta keep screaming ’til they hear you out…”

JASON ALDEAN

Jason-AldeanBurnin’ It Down

“You slip your finger through the tear in my t-shirt
You stirrin’ up dirty in the back of my mind
You keep on flirtin’ cause you know that it’s workin’
You stuck in my head girl writing the lines
Couldn’t sing this song without you if I tried
Let’s light it up like it’s our last night…”

I know I keep saying that I’m moving, but honest I am.. today… or tomorrow…

Until then, enjoy! 🙂

CHEVELLE

Brainiac

Time hold us for a minute,
It dries the wrists like penicillin
Each of these men holds a pentagram
So ease up on the slurs
They’re pushing off the charts

We know him as one cell
Should’ve combined to save brains
How ’bout I teach him to crawl
Lift up the head so proud
Imagine this one cell…

TRAPT

trapt

Contagious

I saw your intentions, I gave you permission
Go ahead and start the war
I was out of addictions, by my own admission
Oh, I’ve been keeping score
But you made an exception, you taught me a lesson
Who cares where we’ve been before?
You would never leave me all by myself, all by myself
you don’t want nobody else…

SLIPKNOT

Snuff

Bury all your secrets in my skin
Come away with innocence, and leave me with my sins
The air around me still feels like a cage
And love is just a camouflage for what resembles rage again…

I’m buried under a ton of editing, getting ready to submit another book to my publisher, and apparently my characters tend to dictate which library I decide to listen to lately –  so I hope this week’s ‘themed’ choices work for everyone!  Happy Tuesday!

Enjoy:

INSTITUTE

Institute-band

Bullet Proof Skin

Burn, baby burn
Strung out on a wire
Heart in a cage
You’re so full of desire
You need, fast hands
To deal with all the liars
Bullet-proof skin to keep you alive

EVANESCENCE

evanescence-hdr-01

Lithium

Darling, I forgive you… After all,
Anything is better than to be alone.
And in the end I guess I had to fall.
Always find my place among the ashes.

I can’t hold on to me,
Wonder what’s wrong with me.

ADEMA

Giving In

Caught up, in life
Losing all my friends
Family has tried, to heal all my addictions
Tragic it seems, to be alone again
I’m giving in to you

Take me under
I’m giving in to you
I’m dying tonight
I’m giving in to you
Watch me crumble
I’m giving in to you
I’m crying tonight
I’m giving in to you

I haven’t been keeping up with these regularly, but hope y’all enjoy this week’s picks:

(p.s. If you’re not one to normally check out the videos I link to the song titles, you have to at least see Ed Sheeran’s, I thought it was the best video I’d seen in a long time.)

ED SHEERAN

Give Me Love

Give me love like never before,
‘Cause lately I’ve been craving more,
And it’s been a while but I still feel the same,
Maybe I should let you go,

You know I’ll fight my corner,
And that tonight I’ll call ya,
After my blood is drowning in alcohol,
No, I just wanna hold ya.

JUSTIN RADIN ft. MARIA TAYLOR

mariataylor joshua_radin_2

When I Find You, I’ll Find Me

My only weakness, is knowing your secrets
and holding them close, and hold them tight
I know the way to silently make you
smile with my eyes, when you’re trying to fight

ALEX CLARE

Just Too Close (To Love You)

You know I’m not one to break promises,
I don’t want to hurt you but I need to breathe.
At the end of it all, you’re still my best friend,
But there’s something inside that I need to release.
Which way is right, which way is wrong,
How do I say that I need to move on?
You know we’re heading separate ways.

Triple Lyric Tuesday Delayed

WHAT!? I missed Triple Lyric Tuesday again?  I guess it’s a good thing I don’t mind posting it a day late.  Sorry everyone, I’ve been spending all of my time immersed in a rebellious pack of totally HAWT, utterly drool-worthy, lickable Scandinavian wolves.  😉  Pfft… And you wonder how Tuesday could’ve slipped past my Priority Radar…

Enjoy!

Fade Into You

You live your life
You go in shadows
You’ll come apart and you’ll go blind
Some kind of night into your darkness
Colors your eyes with what’s not there.

Fade into you
Strange you never knew
Fade into you
I think it’s strange you never knew

THREE DAYS GRACE

I’ve been cursed
I’ve been crossed
I’ve been beaten by the ones that get me off
I’ve been cut
I’ve been opened up
I’ve been shattered by the ones I thought I loved

A GREAT BIG WORLD ft. CHRISTINA AGUILERA

christina-aguilera-a-great-big-world-say-something-live-the-voice
Say Something

And I am feeling so small
It was over my head
I know nothing at all

And I will stumble and fall
I’m still learning to love
Just starting to crawl

Say something, I’m giving up on you

I have a problem with your formatting nonsense WordPress.  Why in the world the ‘Preview’ never looks like it does in editing is beyond me.  There are huge gaps of space that I can’t get rid of, because they don’t show here in ‘editing’ in order for me to delete them and it’s making my eyes twitch.  I don’t like you very much today.

Here’s another random selection for everyone to enjoy.  Check out the videos I linked to the song titles, they’re all good!

Airplanes

BoB+feat+Hayley+Williams+Bruno+Mars++Paramore+thumbnail_8“…But that’s just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel in the sand
What would you wish for if you had one chance?
So airplane, airplane, sorry I’m late
I’m on my way so don’t close that gate
If I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight
And I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night…”

by: B.o.B. ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore

Broken

Seether+Feat+Amy+Lee+0547E1I wanted you to know, that I love the way you laugh
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain away
I keep your photograph, and I know it serves me well
I wanna hold you high and steal your pain

‘Cause I’m broken when I’m open
And I don’t feel like I am strong enough
‘Cause I’m broken when I’m lonesome
And I don’t feel right when you’re gone away

By: Seether ft. Amy Lee of Evanescence

 Makes Me Wonder

maroon-5-wallpaper-14Goddamn my spinning head
Decisions that made my bed
Now I must lay in it
And deal with things I’ve left unsaid
I want to dive into you
Forget what you’re going through
I get behind, make you move
Forget about the truth

I still don’t have the reason
And you don’t have the time
And it really makes me wonder
If I ever gave a fuck about you
