Day 51 – KISS – God Gave Rock ‘N’ Roll To You II

“I know life sometimes can get tough! And I know life sometimes can be a drag!

But people, we have been given a gift, we have been given a road

And that road’s name is… Rock and Roll!”

Day 49 of 365 Days of Song

Day 49 – Florence + the Machine – Last Christmas (Wham! Cover)

I love this cover of a classic Christmas song. Florence’s vocals give give it a totally different edge, and makes it a bit darker.

Once bitten and twice shy
I keep my distance
But you still catch my eye.
Tell me, baby,
Do you recognize me?
Well,
It’s been a year,
It doesn’t surprise me
(Merry Christmas)

Day 47 of 365 Days of Song

Day 47 – Nilsson – Life Line

Came on shuffle today; very apt to my mental state right now.

Down to the bottom
Hello, is there anybody else here?
It’s cold and I’m so lonely
Hello, is there anybody else here?

Hello, won’t you throw me down a Life Line?
I’m so afraid of darkness
And down here, it’s just like night time

Oohs, are all around me
Hello, will you please send down a Life Line?

Down and there isn’t any hope for me
Unless this dream which seems so real
Is just a fantasy

Day 184 – Bob Dylan – The Man in Me

Love this song, and it’s part in the soundtrack of Big Lebowski.

The man in me will do nearly any task
As for compensation, there’s a little he will ask
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Storm clouds are raging all around my door
I think to myself I might not take it anymore
Take a woman like your kind
To find the man in me.

But, oh what a wonderful feeling
Just to know that you are near
It sets my heart a-reeling
From my toes up to my ears.

The man in me will hide sometimes to keep from being seen
But that’s just because he doesn’t want to turn into some machine
Take a woman like you
To get through to the man in me.

Day 44 – Electric Youth – A Real Hero

This song gives me a serious, uplifting feeling. Music like this is good for the soul!

Back against the wall,
at odds, with the strength of a will and cause
Your pursuits are called outstanding,
Your emotionally complex, against the grain
And you have proved to be
A real human being
And a real hero
