Pagan Girl

Posted in Music

I recently had my itunes music moved from my old computer onto my lap top when I noticed that a few songs did not transfer over, mostly songs of which had been downloaded from ther internet so I was e-mailing the songs to myself from the old computer to open them up on my lap top to download them into itunes and I came acorss this song that my dearly beloved had sent me when we were first getting to know each other, and I just thought it was really cute and sweet.

 

Pagan Girl

by Emerald Rose

 

Well the world is full of women
Every color, shape, and kind
And with this female cornucopia
It might be hard to make up your mind
I've had my share of failures
But I've learned a thing or two
I've laid down some hard-earned guidelines
Listen well and I'll sing them for you

Chorus:
I'm gonna find myself a pagan girl
Who understands the Goddess and rocks my world
Chant in the circle as the Sun and the Moon
Then dance round the fire to a Goddess tune
Rock all night 'till the morning unfurls
I'm gonna find myself a pagan girl

Back in college, Mary was an A D Pi
And as fine as any you have seen
But she blackballed the God and the Goddess
If they didn't wear pink and green
And Belinda, she was a wild girl
She could dance, she could ride, and she could scream
But the only Gods she adored and served
Were Mary Jane and old Jim Beam

(chorus)

Now Sherry was a fine, sweet girl
My happiness was her goal
But she had one very big problem with me
I would not let her save my soul
And Annie was a New Age mystic
Dolphins, angels, crystals, trees
But her idea of wild good time
Was channeling from the Pleiades

(chorus)

I didn't think that I would ever find her
Thought it might be a greater mystery
Then I saw her standing in the circle
An earthly Goddess weaiting just for me...

Oh, I found myself a pagan girl
Who understands the Goddess and rocks my world
We stand in the circle as the Sun and the Moon
Then dance round the fire to a Goddess tune
Rock all night till the morning unfurls
I found myself a pagan girl
P-A-G-A-N, P-A-G-A-N,
I found myself a pagan girl -- pagan girl!

There Ain't No Rest for the Wicked

Posted in Music

There is this song which has recently been used in the commercial for some new popular game that has been advertised a lot lately. I had heard this song sometime back upon the radio and it had really jumped out at me, it was one of those things that while at first did not immediately strike me, but rather one which I needed time to allow to sink in and the more I absorbed it the greater my liking for it began to grow. I just heard the song again today upon the radio, and the lyrics are truly pure poetry, and there is something within this song which cut me right to the soul and really spoke out to some inner depth within me.

 

There Ain't No Rest For the Wicked by Caged Elephant

 

I was walking down the street
When out the corner of my eye,
I saw a pretty little thing approaching me.
She said I never seen a man,
Who looks so all alone,
Could you use a little company?
If you could pay the right price,
Your evening will be nice,
Or you can go and send me on my way,
I said you're such a sweet young thing,
Why'd you do this to yourself?
She looked at me and this is what she said.

Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Money don't grow on trees,
I got bills to pay,
I got mouths to feed,
There ain't nothing in this world for free.
I know I can't slow down,
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could,
Oh no there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

Not even 15 minutes later,
I'm still walking down the street,
When I saw the shadow of a man creep out of sight,
And then he swept up from behind,
Put a gun up to my head,
He made it clear he wasn't looking for a fight,
He said give me all you've got,
I want your money not your life,
If you try to make a move I wont think twice,
I told him you can have my cash,
But first you know I've got to ask,
What made you want to live this kind of life?

He said there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Money don't grow on trees,
I got bills to pay
I got mouths to feed
Ain't nothing in this world for free.
I know I can't slow down,
I can't hold back
Though you know I wish I could
Oh no there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

Now a couple hours past,
And I was sitting in my house,
The day was winding down and coming to an end,
So I turned on the TV,
And flipped it over to the news,
And what I saw I almost couldn't comprehend,
I saw a preacher man in cuffs
Taking money from the church,
He stuffed his bank account with righteous dollar bills
But even still I can't say much
Because I know were all the same,
Oh yes we all seek out to satisfy those thrills.

You know there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Money don't grow on trees,
We got bills to pay
We got mouths to feed
Ain't nothing in this world for free.
Oh no
We can't slow down,
We can't hold back
Though you know we wish we could.
You know there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good.

Father's Son

Posted in Music

I was having a bit of an insomniac night last night, though I do not know why, for some reason I just for the life of me could not get to sleep. Perhaps it was the electrical storm in the air, had me charged in mind and body. I do feed off of a good storm, but at any rate, when I have trouble sleeping I usually always put on my ipod, and getting lost in the music generally helps me drift off to sleep. Well this time it just was not working. I would slip away for a while but then all of the sudden I would be brought back again into wakeful consciousness. So as I was having one of my lucid moments of wakefulness this song happened to come on, and I do not know if it was just the late night, and my efforts to sleep, or my current mental state, but something about it had really struck to the core of my soul. It was just one of those songs for some reason spoke to me upon some deep intament level and the words seemed to me to be quite poetic in the feeling and visions they inspired.


The song was called Father's Son, by 3 Doors Down.

 

"Father's Son"

In the glare of a neon sign
She laid her body down
The damned walked in beside her
And laid his money down

He said don't try to scream now
But I want this one to hurt
And tonight my pretty one
I'm gonna get my money's worth

He said they never listen
She said they'd never understand
That I don't this for pleasure
I just do it cause I can

I swear I didn't want to
And I swear I didn't know
That things like this could happen
To a 17-year old

[Chorus]
And I've bundled up all these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again

In the haze of a smoky room
He chokes that bottle down
It's been a month since her saw her face
Underneath the blood stained gown

He thinks about that little girl
And the one he has at home
And wonders what if that was my little girl
Walkin down that road alone

[Chorus]
And I've bundled up all these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again
Never again
No

Maybe I'm just crazy or the devil got inside
But either way my soul is gone, And I'll end this all tonight
The one hand throws the whiskey, and the other throws the gun
As he cries out to the heavens
I am not my father's son

[Chorus]
And I've bundled up all these fears inside
And I've bottled up all of this pain
And no one or nothing can take this away
But I won't let it happen again
Never again
Never again
No

Viva La Vida

Posted in Music

I never really listend to Coldplay before, but on an itunes commerical I heard this song by them, or part of it, and it intrigued me so I looked it up, and when I was reading these lyrics, something about them, just really spoke to me. I just fell in love with the lyrcis for this song.

 

Viva La Vida

 

I used to rule the world
Seas would rise when I gave the word
Now in the morning I sweep alone
Sweep the streets I used to own

I used to roll the dice
Feel the fear in my enemy's eyes
Listen as the crowd would sing:
"Now the old king is dead! Long live the king!"

One minute I held the key
Next the walls were closed on me
And I discovered that my castles stand
Upon pillars of salt and pillars of sand

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
Once you go there was never, never an honest word
That was when I ruled the world


It was the wicked and wild wind
Blew down the doors to let me in.
Shattered windows and the sound of drums
People couldn't believe what I'd become

Revolutionaries wait
For my head on a silver plate
Just a puppet on a lonely string
Oh who would ever want to be king?

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world

ooooo ooooo ooooo oooooo ooooo
(repeat with chorus)

I hear Jerusalem bells a ringing
Roman Cavalry choirs are singing
Be my mirror my sword and shield
My missionaries in a foreign field
For some reason I can't explain
I know Saint Peter won't call my name
Never an honest word
But that was when I ruled the world
Oooooh Oooooh Oooooh

Name that tune

Posted in Music

I was flipping through the channels a few days ago, when there was nothing to watch on TV and I was just looking for some background noise, when I came upon VH1 and I was just so stunned and shocked to see they were acutally playing a music video, as it has been a long time sense I have seen a music tv station, acutally playing music, and the song that was currently on was not that bad so I decdied to leave it on.

 

The song that came to play next was a rather odd little song I thought, and at first I did not know what to make of it, my first inclination was not to like it, and yet I somehow remained facinated and could not turn away and I think the song had begun to grow on me, and now for the life of me I cannot remember what the song was called or the name of the woman who sang it.

 

She was this Irish girl with red hair, and when she sang she had a bit of the Irish accent, and the song was a bit of a strange one, and in some parts sounded almost more like talking than signing. It was about this relationship in which now all they do is fight, and there is really nothing left between but for some reason they still try to hold on. For the life of me I cannot pull from my head any of the specific lyrics.

 

In the music video for it. She is in thier apartment with her boyfrined, showing them being estranged from each other, and she is signing about how all they do is fight, and it makes her smile when she is irritating him and she knows it is not right, and how they are trying to hold onto something that is already lost.

 

So if this sounds familair in anyway to anyone, please let me know, I was goign to go and try and look on VH1's website and see if I could find anything.

War Pigs

Posted in Music

I was in the car when this song came on the raido, and though I have the sense I heard the song before it sounded famillar I never really paid attention to it, untill tonight, for some reason, I was acutally listening to it intently, I am not sure what first caught my attention, but upon listening to it, something about the song really struck me, and it turned out to be a really good song. And what shocked me even more was when I realized who it was by. It was by Cake, I do not know if anyone is famillar with them, but I do like them and listen to them sometimes but this song  was so unlike what they usually do, it did not even sound like them. There songs are usually always light-heated and humurous. Fun little songs, sometimes wierd, but this song was really hard and dark.

 

So here are the lyrics.

 

War Pigs

 

Generals gathered in their masses
Just like witches at black masses
Evil minds that plot destruction
Sorcers of death's construction
In the fields the bodies burning
As the war machine keeps turning
Death and hatred to mankind
Poisoning their brainwashed minds
Oh lord, yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight
They leave that role to the poor
Yeah
Time will tell them they have power minds
Making war just for fun
Treating like people just like pawns in chess
Wait until that judgment day comes
yeah!
(Hey!)
(Hey!)
(Hey!)
(Hey!)

Now in darkness world stops turning
As you hear the bodies burning
No more war pigs have the power
And as god has struck the hour
They have judgment
god is calling
On their knees the war pigs crawling
Making mercies for their sins
Satan laughing spreads his wings
Oh lord, yeah!

Ok I just found out some new informaiton about this song that does explain things. Appernetly it was originally done by Black Sabbath which is why it sounded famillar to me, but I do not really like Black Sabbith, I do not care for thier sound which is why I probaly never paid attention to the song before, but when Cake did it, it sounded different and better to me, so that is what caught my attention. It is also less baffaling if they were just doing a remake, as this is so unlike anything they normally do.

Night at the Opera

Posted in Music

I went to the Opera the other night, my first time going, and it was quite an intresting experince though I did enjoy it more then I thought I would. I was looking forward to going, and in general I do love live theater, but needless to say the acutal opera, really is not the way they often portray opera as being in movies or on TV, and indeed for anyone whom has caught an Opera on TV on some local or public access channel as they often play here, to see it in person is nothing like that. I tried watching the opera on TV and it is dreadful, but if you go in person it is a completely different experince.

 

First of all the Opera House, was beautiful. It was a tremendous building that was a labyrinth of stairs and halls, and each level looked just like the next, and it was a circular building So each different level went around within a circle, so there would be stairs that came down upon both the left and right side, but all ended up in the same place. We were sitting in the cheapest seats possible, in the rear balcony, which was the higest level they have, at the very back, but acutally the seats did have a good view of the stage. Though the seats themselves were a bit uncomftrable, they were very narrow and just packed poeple in, but luckily it was not sold out, so our row was nearly empty.

 

The preformace I went to see was The Magic Flute, by Mozart, and I have to say the music, was really amazing, Mozart is becoming one of my faveorit composors from what I heard from him so far, and I loved the music for the opera. It was really good. Also the set, and effects of Opera, are just unbelivable. They do some amazing things on stage to really set the mood. They only used like a few basic props that they could reagange in varrious different ways to produce a completely knew setting everytime, and I love thie use of lighting as well for the effects. I really liked the thunder and lignting they used and one of my faveorite parts of the show, was at the very begining this serpant they had.

 

The show itself was interesting, it was quite entertaining. It was humurus, and yet at the same time a bit disturbing and cultish, and I have to say a touch masogonistic, but it was full of all sorts of symbolisim, and well it acutaly went into aspects of Free Masonory.

 

Though one thing I have to say, I did quite enjoy it, but I was not really emotonaly moved by it, it just did not speak to me in that way, and I know what is one of the things people usually say about the opera, is that it is suppose to really take you through the emotions, and move you, but I did not really feel that. I do not know if it was just that particuarly perfomace that did not speak to me or perhaps Opera itself just does not strike me in that way, but I could not get myself to really by captivated by the characters or to feel with them.

 

And of course my faveorite characters were the ones that were suppose to be the villans, I loved the Queen of the Night, and her three servants. 

 

It was a good sbow.

The Four Seasons

Posted in Music

I have totally fallen in love with a piece of music, it is perhaps one of the most ingenous things I have ever heard done musically, though I have only heard a protion of it, the 1st movement to be exzact as it is a piece of classical music, I cannot wait for the oppertunity to get my hands on the rest of it.

 

I have started classes again, and the new class I am taking now is the history, theroy, and apperication of music, meant to teach non-music majors how to listen to music, and it is the study of primairly classical music, it started with the Middle Ages and now we have just began discussing the Baroque period, and with the text book for the class there are set of CD's to listen to sample music to hear the things the book is discussing, and the composer Vavildi composed a concerto (for those whom do not know music, that is when an Ocherasta plays in contrast to either like a quartet or single instrument) called The Four Seasons, and it is what is known as Progam Music, which is music that tells a story without words using, only insturments. So the Orchestra will play a repeating theme, and then the quartet, or instrument, will play a prelude that helps the plot along, and the prelude is always different while the themse is the same all the time.

 

So Vavaldi composed a concerto that is meant to tell the story of the changing of the Four Seasons, down in four movements, and each movement is dedicated to one of the seasons, so for my class we have the 1st movement called La Primavera, which tells the story of spring. So first the Orchestra plays the theme, which is happy up beat music, and then the quartet does a prelude to mimic the sound of flying chriping birds, then back to the Orchestra, and then the quartet immitates a winding brook with a gentle breeze, then back to the Orchestra, and then the next prelude is thunder and lighetning, and then back to the theme, and then the prelude does this really intense the storm is stratign to break, and blows over and th birds come back, then it goes back to the theme, and then another prelude that is the birds signing happily again.

 

It is just amazing to actualy listen to, and I really want to see what he does with the rest of the three seasons. I totally love this thing.

Mack the Knife

Posted in Music

I do not know how many of you are famillar with the song Mack the Knife, it is a bit of an oldie, This is just a little bit of intresting trivia I had come acorss. The song Mack the Knife, was originally written for and used in a song for an Opera that was preformed by thives, highwaymen and prostintues, in fact many of the names referenced in the song were the name of prostitues that preformed in the opera.

 

And just for kicks here are the lyrics:

 

Oh the shark has pretty teeth dear
And he shows them pearly white
Just a jack-knife has Mac-heath dear
And he keeps it out of sight

When the shark bites with his teeth dear
Scarlet billows start to spread
Fancy gloves though wears Mac-heath dear
So there's not a trace of red
On the sidewalk Sunday morning
Lies a body oozing life
Someone's sneaking 'round the corner
Is the someone Mack the Knife
From a tugboat by the river
A cement bag's dropping down
The cement's just for the weight dear
Bet you Mackies's back in town
Louis Miller disappeared dear
After drawing out his cash
And Mac-heath spends like a sailo
Did our boy do something rash
Sukey Tawdry, Jenny Diver
Polly Peachum Lucy Brown
O the line forms on the right dear
Now that Mackie's back in town

Name that tune

Posted in Music

Ok who wants to try and help me guess the lryics of a song based on extrmely vauge lyrics? There is this song I have heard a couple of times, and it is a somewhat older song, but I never caught what it was called or who it was by but i kind of like the song, and for some reason the only thing that sticks out in my mind is there is this one line in the song that says.

 

"There was a genie in a bottle"

 

and it was a woman signing the song, I know that much.

 

When I try to google it all I get is this stupid Christina Augilaira song called Genie in a Bottle which I know is not the one I want.

 

So if that rings any bells to anyone by any chance, or even if you just have a wild guess, any help would be appraicted on this.

Far Away Boys

Posted in Music

I just listend to what is perhaps one of the most heartbreaking songs I have heard. It was one of the very rare and few songs that would almost make me want to cry. The lyrics were very powerful, and very beautiful I thought, and it was so sweet and sad. It is called Far Away Boys, by Flogging Molly, a Celtic Rock band, though this song was done in a more traidtional Irish Folk style, and I just thought I would post the lyrics.

 

Far Away Boys

Flogging Molly

 

Well I worked on the railroad
For t'pence a day
Drank down one penny
The other I'd save
I hammered and I hammered
For God knows how long
Well into madness, with each setting sun
I put my head down and I dreamt you were here
With me by the ol' tree, where no one could care

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

Then the sun belched upon me
You were no longer here
Lyin' in your place was my hammer and my gear
So I stamped out the fire that kept us both warm
The ashes were fallin'
Like the snow drops of old
We came to a mountain
Dynamite and she'll blow
A big hole in that rock
Like the one in my soul

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

We buried four workmen
They dug themselves well
From four empty coffins, to four early graves
They're only paddys, just paddys
Don't dig them too deep
You'll need all your strength boys
And they're replaced easily
With the heat I was melting
Into your sweet lips
Ah, your kiss takes me back
Takes me back from all this

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

Someone said it was Christmas
But not a tree was in sight
The only thing growin' was my will to die
Till the gaffer said 'men, your work here is done'
I said 'I'll see you in Hell, on that train we died for'
Never again, will I smell your sweet dream
But a pissed stained ol' gutter where:
You lips used to be

Far Away Boys, Far Away Boys
Away from ya now
I'm lyin' with my sweetheart
In her arms I'll be found

New Obcession

Posted in Music

I have recently become obccessed with International, or what is called World music, which quite self-explinaorialy is music from all different parts of the world. Well acutally it is not techniqually true that I have just recenetly become obcessed with it persae, I have always had an intrest in music and sounds from all over the world, becasue so many places have so many different instruments which produce an arrwy of new and exotic sounds and I most particuarly love more traiditional/folk type music from acorss the world but I have just recently stumbled upon this site that has free mp3 downloads of a large collection of World music, as well as other things like Indi music, and off beat kind of stuff. Music that you would not likely buy or find in your average music story, which is really cool. So I have been listning to and downloading music from all over. Even when I cannot understand what the people are saying, I still love just to listen to them sing.

The Stalker Song

Posted in Music

There is just something about a good stalker song, that you have to love. And by stalker song, I mean those songs that are about someone stalking another, like for example Every Breath You Take, by Sting is a classic stalker song. There is just something so distrubting about those songs that sink down into the skin, and it is just that fine line between Romance and Dementia that is full of intrigue and tingles the skin and the other unique property of the stalker song that you just have to love, is the fact that becasue it is that they are alway from the stalker's point of view and so you are pulled into thier mind, and becasue it is thier voice that you are hearing, they are the ones narraiting to you, you find yourself then pulled onto thier side, and almost routing for them in almost an unconcious way. Even when you understand what is going on and the message behind what is being said you get drawn into and thier dellusions become your own as you start to almost see thier own rationality in what they are doing. I was just listning to a great stalker song by Nickleback.

 

Follow You Home

Nickleback

 

Well you can dig me up a grave
And try and stick me in the ground
Well you can tie me to the bed
And try and beat me half to death
But you can never keep me down
Well you can stick me in a hole
And you can pray all day for rain
You can shoot me in the leg
Just to try to make me beg
And you can leave me there for days


And I'll stay alive
Just to follow you home
And I will survive
'Cause you're my Mississippi Princess
You're my California Queen
Like the Duchess of Detroit
And every city in between
You can slap me in the face
You can scream profanity
Leave me here to die alone but
I'll still follow you home
I'll still follow you home

You can make a couple calls
And tell your brothers I'm in town
Put a bounty on my head
And tell my parents that I'm dead
And hope to hell I'm never found
You can steal me the keys
To your daddy's Cadillac
You can tamper with the brakes
Call it a mistake
And pray I'm never coming back

And I will survive
'Cause you're my Mississippi Princess
You're my California Queen
Like the Duchess of Detroit
And every city in between
You can slap me in the face
You can scream profanity
Leave me here to die alone but
I'll still follow you home
I'll still follow you home

You can dig me up a grave
And try and stick me in the ground
You can tie me to the bed
And try and beat me half to death
But you can never keep me down

And I will survive
'Cause you're my Mississippi Princess
You're my California Queen
Like the Duchess of Detroit
And every city in between
You can slap me in the face
You can scream profanity
Leave me here to die alone but
I'll still follow you home
I'll still follow you home

Help finding song lyrics

Posted in Music

There is this song that is used in the new Ford commercial that I have been trying to find the full lyrcis for.

The song is called Miles and Miles, by Dee and that part that is in the commercial is

 

"I like the view from above
I want to do what I want
and what I want to do is
to see for miles and miles and miles on end

 

does anyone know the rest or where I can find it? I tried google but I cannot find it there anywhere. And the song does show up in the itunes store when I looked it up, so I do not think it was made just for the comercial but I cannot track it down online.

Loosers come in first

Posted in Music

Well I just heard something that I could not help but to find somewhat ironic in a way, I was watching The Colbert Report, and he was doing this thing on what he called the Four Horseman of the A-Pop-colyps, and it was all about some of the best sellters in Moives, TV, Music, and Books

 

And for Music he was talking about this album by this guy Chris Dauchry which I guess was a top selling album, though I had never heard of the guy, apperently he was like a 4th place contestant on Amercian Idol last seaon. So how is it that on Amercain Idol, the show in which Amercia is suppose to choose thier idol the person they like the best, as that is the whole point of the show, the guy who was a 4th runner up ends up having a best selling album, when as far as I know Taylor Hicks, the acutal winner, and the alledged choosen Amercian Idol by Amercia, has done nothing as far as I know sense he won the show? I have not heard his name sense last season of Amercian Idol, and though I do not exzactly keep up with mainstream music, I hear bits and pieces here and there.

 

So go figure that one out.

If I Was President

Posted in Music

There is this song I had heard once a couple years back, it was like on the first season of the Chapella (I know I botched the spelling) Show, though I am not found of the show in general there was nothing else on and I happend to have the TV tuned into Comedy Central, anyway, they had this guest signing, but at the time I did not catch thier name and they sang this song that had a really good beat and a great message that I really liked, and I cannot remeber how it happend, or just where but as of recently the song came back into my attention and I decided to see if I could look it up on my itunes to download to my ipod, and I found it.

 

Listining to it again, it is really quite an amazing song. It has a strong message, and well it is a song that I can really feel and has a lot of deep emotion to it, though I will forewarn it is a political/protest song, with a strong liberal bent (which should not be surprsing to anyone who has read my blog) there is this one line in the song that I think is really great

 

But the radio won't play this.
They call this rebel music.
How can you refuse it, children of moses?

I also think the chorus is just great and well with the whole song there is something almost sad about it escpacally sense it is not hard to imagine that it would be true, which is really quite sad considering who is in office now.

 

If I was president,
I'd get elected on Friday, assasinated on Saturday,
and buried on Sunday.

 

The song is called If I was President by Wycelf Jean and I strongly recomend anyone to check it out

I have any idea, anyone intrested?

Posted in Music

This is an idea that I have had for a few years now, but I have never really done anything with it because there are aspects and peices of it that I do not fully understand or do not have the talent for, but this year I decided I wanted to try and make it happen, but to do that I am going to need the help and expertise of others.

 

So here is my idea, to create a cd (and if it goes well, maybe a siers of cds) of Winter Solistice/Yule music, that is mustic for the comming holidays designed for Pagans to enjoy, that express and incoperate Pagan spritualty and the meaning of the Yule/Solistice to Pagans, becasue there is plenty of music on the raido that references, Christ, Christianty, or Christmas, and there are a few more genertic type of holiday songs, but of course there is nothing spefically for the Pagan and yet there are a few songs loaded with the Christan meaning of Christmass.

 

As a writer it is my wish to be envolved in helping creating the songs, and writing the lyrics, but I cannot sing to save my life, and I do not play any musicial insturments, nor doI have knowledge of the bussiness end of how to make this happen, so if there is anyone out there who can offer thier services and talents to this project I would be much obligied. And of course, I am also intrested in anyone else who wants to help on comming up with ideas/lyrics for the songs. Whatever you can give that would help out here.

 

Now I would like to make a couple things clear, I am not looking to hire anyone for this, becasue I cannot I don't have any money, but that does not mean I am asking for charity work either, though if anyone can and is willing to donate thier time or services or anything that can help, by all means, but I am looking to establish a partnership in which anyone who is involved and participates in making this happen will share in the profits from the sale of the cds.

 

Also though I am a Pagan making a product for Pagans, it does not mean you must be a Pagan to help out if you are just into music or have something you can offer, whatever you beleive, I welcome anything you can bring to the table.

 

There are 3 ways in which anyone intrested can contact me.

Can Anyone Help?

Posted in Music
Does anyone out there happen to watch VH1 or if not perhaps the below lines will sound famillar to someone out there.

Earlier today my brother-in-law was flipping through the channels and came to VH1 and they were playing this show called Fresh in which they air what are suppose tobe the hottiest new music and videos and there was this song playing that both me and my sister swear we heard for a TV show or movie tralior or something but could not recall where and I wanted to look it up, but I never caught the name of the song, so I was going to look up the lyrics to find out what the song was, but at the time I couldn't and when I got around to it I could not remeber the exzact lyrcis any longer and tried to google what I did recall but found nothing and I tried to look it up on VH1 to see if they would list the videos they played today but I could not find anything, so all I recall was that it went something like this

"Now that I found this is exzactly where I want to be" that was the chrous where it just kept repeating those lines, or simillar such lines over and over, and I know the singer was this woman with dark longish hair but I do not know her name.

Can anyone help?

Posted in Music
I do not know how many of you are famillair with the show Meduim but it had just premiered for its secound (I think) season, and all during the past couple weeks they have been advertising the show and playing this song in the background, and I kept meaning to look up what the song was but whenever I would hear it would be a bad time, and then I would not remeber the lyrics later and now that the show has already aired they do not play it anymore, so if anyone else has heard the song and can help me please let me know.
