Music: Food For The Soul

Happy Tuesday!

I woke up in kind of an interesting mood, a variety of emotions mixing together was leaving me feeling a little uninspired. Of course that was at 2:30 this morning and things since then have changed - for the better. On my 35 minute drive to work, I popped in a cd of my favorite love songs. It was just what I need to give me the desired lift of spirit and energy. But then music definately has that effect on most people. Whether it be a hot hip-hop track to get you through your workout or an inspirational song to help you make it through a valley, even a lullabye to rock your baby to sleep - music makes a difference.

So with that said, I was able to muster enough energy to get a little more writing done on my NaNoWriMo novel. There's a smile on my face and creative energy flowing through me so I also decided to flip my blog just a little bit. Colors, pictures and yes, I added music. I'm going to try to be diligent in changing the videos to fit my mood but you know how that goes ........

Today on the juke box, it's John Legend with one of the most beautiful love songs I've ever heard - So High. I've included the lyrics and yes, it is a dedication.


Baby since the day you came into my life
You made me realize that we were born to fly
You showed me everyday new possibilities
You proved my fantasies of love could really be
Let's go to a place only lovers go
To a spot that we've never known
To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
Ooh this feels so crazy
Oh this love is blazing
Baby we're so high
Walking on cloud 9
(You've got me up so high) So high
(My shoes are scraping the sky) So high
(You've got me up so high) Oh
(My shoes are scraping the sky)
Maybe later we can go up to the moon
Or sail among the stars before the night is through
And when morning comes we'll see the sun is not so far
And we can't get much closer to God than where we are
We'll go to a place only lovers go
To a spot that we've never known
To the top of the clouds we're floating away yeah
Ooh this feels so crazy
Oh this love is blazing
Baby we're so high
Walking on cloud 9
(You've got me up so high) So high
(My shoes are scraping the sky) So high
(You've got me up so high) Oh
(My shoes are scraping the sky)
Ooh...yeah
Ooh...oh hey
Ooh this feels so crazy
Oh this love is blazin'
Baby we're so high
Walking on cloud 9
You got me up so high
You got me up so high
You got me up so high
My shoes are scraping the sky
You got me up so high
You got me up so high
You got me up so high
My shoes are scraping the sky ooh...ooh...
Yeah...
This is how love's supposed to be
This is how, this is how love's supposed to be, yeah
Let's go to the moon baby, ooh
Let's go to the moon baby, yeah
Let's go, go, let's go to the moon baby
So high...


So tell me, what song is playing in the background of your life today?

  1. Funny that you should ask that question. Around 1:45am, I woke up wanting to hear the musical score from Bridges of Madison County. I popped in the dvd, went to the scene where Meryl is in the truck with hubby, eyes shifting from hubby to Clint Eastwood and back again. Her hand is firmly grasping the door handle while she comtemplates should she stay or should she go. The scene itself is one of the most powerful scenes in the movie. But the score? BREATHTAKING.

    Sometimes I have to hear the passion contained in the score - if for no other reason than to make sure the heart is still functioning beyond pumping blood.

    That's my fav song at the moment.

    Close second? "Better Love Yourself" by Terisa Griffin.

    k.O.: The Bridges of Madison County. I should have guessed. Now I'm right there with you about Terisa Griffen. That Chi-Town Sistah is bad!
