But lately, ... I've been feeling a bit 'Meh :|' about finding a 'potential partner'. Which is ... completely the wrong time to feel so, because slowly, one by one, all my friends are steadily getting... m a r r i e d.
Now, TODAY, on the ride home, in a friend's car, this radio that was playing songs from the 90's was on... and it made me think... maybe... just maybe, ... it's also because the songs I listen to these days. As how songs can affect moods, if little by little but steadily given, I think the music I listen to can change my feelings and perception. :S
Oh NO! Brainwash.
Some songs I listen to now...
'Oh no, did I get too close?
Oh, did I almost see what's really on the inside?
All your insecurities
All the dirty laundry
Never made me blink one time--'
Really my favourite part of Katy Perry's 'Unconditionally', my ultimate current favourite song (I love her makeup too in the video).
But compared to this...
'I'd walk halfway around the world, for just one kiss from you
Far beyond the call of love, the sun, the stars, the moon
As long as your love is there to lead me, I won't lose my way, believe me
Even through the darkest night, you know ...--'
Backstreet Boys' 'Anywhere for You'. :P
-- I mean, halfway across the world! WALKING! What? To get one ... grand ... kiss ...? *sigh*
'--It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again--'
Pink's of course, 'Just Give Me a Reason'. The scars of our hearts?? Our hearts have scars?? Ouch.
Compared to this...
'--Even the stars shine a bit bright I've noticed
When you're close to me
Still it remains a mystery--'
Not the same stars, are they? Oh yes, we are so could be in love, Lea Salonga and Brad Kane's, 'We Could Be In Love'.
To me, I feel as if the ones I listen to these days are much more realistic, there's a difference in the pictures they paint, and although this is good, I think subconsciously I just find it less romantic, whereas the rest of the songs I listen to these days doesn't even talk about love at all. Not pulling any Lorde here, but you know even her songs don't even talk much about the glorification of love. :)
So, ... I think it is the same reason as why I love love love most of Taylor Swift's and Ed Sheeran's music. BECAUSE I NEED SOME LOVE SONGS to keep me warm and fuzzy.
Give me more of those walking-halfway-across-the-world songs and I'll be off my feet fluttering with borrowed Cupid's wings all the way through to the 14th of February! :D Any love songs suggestions are welcomed! --How's your week so far?
