Since I'm in Ireland at the moment, let's make it Irish music once again.
This is not an actual song, it's the making of the album Passenger
but I love watching it! It's just so good... I can understand that
not many will want to watch a "making of" video of an album they
don't know, but for me... it holds all the 'secrets' that I needed to know.
It makes me want to make an album...
I remember when I discovered this song a couple years ago...
I thought it was amazing! I would listen to it over and over
again...I always thought how weird that was "I'm not mad/sad just
disappointed" I guess I know what disappointed feels like... but
for me it's always with mad/sad feelings as well!
This song is so special to me. When I was going through a hard time
about three or so years ago, I'd go to sleep with my ipod, listening to the
few Bell X1 songs I knew. I'd wake up at night sad, but this song would be
in my ears and it was strangely comforting. After a while, I think I'd wake up
every time the song came on, and I really liked it. It was my little moment...
(do try to find the album version. So good!)
This was never my favorite Bell X1 song but it's very special
and holds many memories... Funny how songs can do that.
(I like when he says "oh christ I'm such a drama queen"!)
You would think that I would hear of Damien and then Lisa and Bell X1
but it was actually Lisa first. The reason I chose this song is because
it's from the second album "9". It was the first album I got. Remember
when I told you "why I love" Lisa? When my dad and I were in Dingle, we went
into a music store looking to buy Lisa's cd, and the lady said "Well, if you're
going to buy Lisa's album, buy Damien's as well" so we did. We listened
to both albums while driving around Ireland. When I think back, I just remember
being really happy because I was in beautiful Ireland listening to wonderful music.
My dad wasn't such a fan of Damien's but I fell in love with his music.
So even though his music can be really depressing, "9" takes me back to a good
time. "O" however doesn't. It was that same sad time about three years ago. And
depressing music didn't help at all. "Amie", though beautiful, is a song that I cannot
listen to. Like "Good Woman" by Cat Power. Beautiful songs but that depress me so
much, I can't ever listen to them.
That's it for this week's Music for the Soul. I thought I'd explain my choice behind each one!
