Music that speaks to me

Post by Dark Waters » Mon Oct 19, 2009 2:56 am

I just like music, all types and I mean ALL types, from Prince to Phantom of the Opera, from David Bowie to Doctor Demento. I sing along (badly since I'm somewhat tone-deaf) to Styx's Mr. Roboto then to Sacred Spirits' Yeha-Noha without a pause. I find a great deal of energy in all forms of music and songs.

But I was listening to music tonight and two of the strongest played so I thought I would share why they are so special to me and reach a very Pagan place in my soul. However, as I mentioned, I am a very visually oriented person, and one of the things that make these songs so meaningful for me are the images they invoke. This may take a bit so settle in, grab a cup of tea and get comfy.

The first song is "Somewhere". Originally written for "West Side Story" I think it has reached it's peak form when sung by the group Il Divo. Four Italian trained classical singers, they have wonderfully powerful expressive voices. Like many things I enjoy in my life I found them through rather odd circumstances. My wife records her soaps and we tend to watch them through dinner. Il Divo appeared on last year's Christmas episode of The Young and The Restless and I was so moved by their voices I immediately got their CD and recommend it whether you understand Italian or not (I don't). Anyway:

Somewhere

There`s a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us.
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us - Somewhere

There`s a time for us,
Some day a time for us,
Time together and time to spare,
Time to look, time to care …

Some day ... Somewhere
We`ll find a new way of living,
We`ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere …

There`s a place for us,
Somewhere a place for us
Time together and time to spare,
Time to look, time to care …

Some day ... Somewhere
We`ll find a new way of living,
We`ll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere …

(music)

Hold my hand and I`ll take you there
Somehow,
Some day,
Somewhere!

The images I get from this song relate to an experience from over a decade ago. I think I have mentioned before that one of the things that firmly set my feet on the Pagan Path was a full day Mabon festival I attended while in Tuscon, Arizona. This song just brings it all back in such a personal way that I even barely understood while I was actually there.

I don't know if any of you have been to large festival celebrations, but imagine if you will while listening to the first verse people coming to set up and preparing the area. It is morning and people come with coffee in hand, lending help to unload everything, setting up the booths, greeting friends and the spirit of the event is just beginning to rise. The second and third verses are the festival in full swing. Music, dancing, people wandering about buying crafts and trinkets and supplies. Even the requisite Christian Zealot protestor is an amusing distraction rather than an annoyance. In the fourth verse, evening has come. The passer-bys and the curious have headed home, the booths begin to shut down and it is time for Craft business and the Circle area is prepared. The fifth and sixth verses are the ritual ceremony itself and the feelings of family and faith, of respect and reverence that come with a large gathering. It changed my life then and changes it again everytime I hear that song.




The second song is "You Raise Me Up" as performed by Josh Groban. I know this is primarily viewed as a Christian themed song, but it works for me as a Pagan just as strongly. Anyway they have stolen so much from us over the centuries, I have no qualms about borrowing this for our purposes. The visuals I get from this song are much more fictional than personal history.

You Raise Me Up
:-({|=
When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

(music)

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

(music)

(With large chorus)
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

(music)

(With large chorus)
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
(solo)You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

At the start of this song, I envision the twilight has come and I sit alone in a Circle on a hillside in open meadows, and my soul is weary and my heart is burdened as it often is. I sit until the Spirits of the Elements and the God and Goddess do come and sit with me. On the second and third verses when it says I can stand on Mountains I reach out my hands North and South, toward Earth and Fire, and visions of standing on the slopes of volcanoes come to mind with all their beauty and power. When it says to walk on Stormy Seas I reach out my hands East and West, toward Air and Water, and the visions change to seas whipped by winds and waves as large as buildings pass around me. With I am strong, my arms come in to my chest and from on your shoulders to the end of the verse, they shoot up toward the Full Moon reflecting the light of the Sun down upon me so I know that both the God and Goddess watch over me. When the Chorus joins in on the fourth and fifth verses, I am no longer the only person in the Circle, Spirits not withstanding, a large group has come, and as the verses progress we all join our voices, our hands and our energy. And on the last two lines when only one voice is there again, it is not because I am alone again, it is because the additional voices aren't necessary, one voice for all because we are one no matter how different we are.

:GHug:

Anyway, that's what I see, so I hoped you enjoyed this little trip through my mind.
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.

You Raise Me UP was our bridal dance song...because Hubby has done so much to help me heal from past problems...that he DOES raise me up. :-D

Amazingly, Someday from Disney's Hunchback soundtrack (BoyzIIMen sang it) is one of my favorites.

Someday
When we are wiser
When the world's older
When we have learned
I pray
Someday we may yet live (learn? - I'm not sure about this one)
To live and let live
Someday
Life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
And greed will not pay
God speed
This bright millennium
On its way
Let it come
Someday

Someday
Our fight will be won then
We'll stand in the sun then
That bright afternoon
'Till then
On days when the sun is gone
We'll hang on
Wish upon the moon

There are some days dark and bitter
Seems we haven't got a prayer
But a prayer for something better
Is the one thing we all share

Someday
When we are wiser
When the whole world is older
When we have learned
I pray
Someday we may yet live
To live and let live
Someday
Life will be fairer
Need will be rarer
Greed will not pay
God speed
This bright millennium
On it's way
Let it come
Someday
One day
Someday
Soon

Someday
Soon

Someday
Soon

Someday
Soon

It's just a good one. There's more, but that one jumps out at me every time I hear it.
You say "Witch" like it's a bad thing!

You Raise Me Up is considered a Christian song? :-k

I first heard this little song done for the anime Romeo x Juliet. I personally never made a religious connection beyond my own. To me it's a song of True Love, since this is what I feel when I think of my husband. I was always (and still can be) very timid, especially in circumstances I'm not familiar with or that make me uncomfortable. He taught me to be more than I was, and for that I'll always Thank him.

Thank you for sharing with us Dark Waters.

I'll have to go find that song from the Hunchback as well. Disney has some songs that are just wonderful. Personally, that song from Hercules is one of my favourites. "Go the Distance" and it's sung by Micheal Bolton, I believe. This one has always reminded me that whatever trials or tribulations I may succeed at down here, I will find my welcome in my Goddess' arms at the end.

Go The Distance

I have often dreamed
Of a far off place
Where a hero's welcome
Would be waiting for me
Where the crowds will cheer
When they see my face
And a voice keeps saying
This is where I'm meant to be

I'll be there someday
I can go the distance
I will find my way
If I can be strong
I know that every mile
Will be worth my while
When I go the distance
I'll be right where I belong

Down an unknown road
To embrace my fate
Though the road may wander
It will lead me to you
And a thousand years
Would be worth the wait
It may take a lifetime
But somehow I'll see it through

And I won't look back
I can go the distance
And I'll stay on track
No I won't accept defeat
It's an uphill slope
But I won't lose hope
Till I go the distance
And my journey is complete

But to look beyond the glory is the hardest part
For a hero's strength is measured by his heart

Like a shooting star
I can go the distance
I will search the world
I will face its harms
I don't care how far
I can go the distance
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms...

I will search the world
I will face its harms
Till I find my hero's welcome
Waiting in your arms...

For instrumentals, one of the strongest I've heard is Pachabel's Canon in D. Especially when performed by a full orchestra, it just fills me with energy until it feels as though I am surrounded by lightning.

Speaking of instrumentals, I have another music review up at the PRN. It's for Bruce Mitchell's "New Earth Goddess".

I gave this album a stunning review, and it is beautiful to listen to. Go over and check out the review, especially if you like listening to the Piano!

Well M.U.M. strikes again ... that's Master of Unusual Music, a nickname I've been tagged with ...

I was feeling a bit nostalgic today so I pulled up on You Tube the old I Love Lucy episode with Harpo Marx. Still brings me to tears and it aired 14 years ere I was born. (in fact he died 5 years before I came on the scene)

Anyway, I started going to all the related videos because I just love hearing him play that harp, and I found a tribute page that used a song I had not til now knew to exist.

When Harpo Played His Harp by Jonathan Richman released in 1988

Well when Harpo played his harp, it was a mystery
All the laughing stopped back to the balcony
Chico, Chico, sure to please
Now let's watch him shoot the keys
When Harpo would play his harp, all was still

When Harpo played his harp, it was a dream, it was
Well if someone else can do it, how come nobody does?
Groucho, Groucho, fast as light
Some talk like him but not quite
When Harpo would play his harp, all was still, still

Well Harpo, Harpo
This is the angels and
where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo
We gotta hear it
One more time

Harpo, Harpo
We're in the galaxies and
where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo
We gotta hear it
One more time

Do you remember what he would do sometimes before he played?
Well he'd look up to the sky and he'd look the angels' way
Harpo, Harpo, when you start
Tears of joy inside my heart
Harpo would play his harp and all was still

Harpo, Harpo
This is the angels and
where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo
We gotta hear it
One more time

Well Harpo, Harpo
We're in the galaxies and
where did you get that sound so fine?
Harpo, Harpo
We gotta hear it
One more time
One more time


And it really is so true, legends had it that when Harpo played during filming, everyone in the studio would become so quiet you could hear their breathing. And I know from experience of watching the movies that the same effect happened to the audience, no matter how much you were laughing from them cutting up, when he laid that harp upon his shoulder - quiet calm reigned.
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.

Anyway, back to energy music ....

I find a lot of very powerful music in Soundtracks - intentionally so because they are really designed to pull out emotion and fill you with feeling. Anything by John Williams is wonderful, and pretty much all of Sir Andrew Llyod Weber's work are masterpieces.

But turning to one that I think might be appropriate for here, is a song that has, in a very short time, become a standby for just about every school graduation.

For Good from the musical Wicked. The Tale of the Witches of Oz

Elphaba) I'm limited
Just look at me - I'm limited
And just look at you
You can do all I couldn't do, Glinda
So now it's up to you
For both of us - now it's up to you...

(Glinda) I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
Well, I don't know if I believe that's true
But I know I'm who I am today
Because I knew you

Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good

(Elphaba) It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend...

Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a skybird
In a distant wood
Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you

(Glinda) Because I knew you

(Both) I have been changed for good

(Elphaba) And just to clear the air
I ask forgiveness
For the thing I've done you blame me for

(Glinda) But then, I guess we know
There's blame to share

(Both) And none of it seems to matter anymore

(Glinda) Like a comet pulled from orbit
As it passes a sun
Like a stream that meets a boulder
Halfway through the wood

(Elphaba) Like a ship blown from its mooring
By a wind off the sea
Like a seed dropped by a bird in the wood

(Both) Who can say if I've been
Changed for the better?
I do believe I have been
Changed for the better

(Glinda) And because I knew you...

(Elphaba) Because I knew you...

(Both) Because I knew you...
I have been changed for good.

I actually prefer Defying Gravity from Wicked more than For Good.
GLINDA
(spoken) Elphaba - why couldn't you have stayed calm for
once, instead of flying off the handle!
(sung) I hope you're happy!
I hope you're happy now
I hope you're happy how you
Hurt your cause forever
I hope you think you're clever!

ELPHABA
I hope you're happy
I hope you're happy, too
I hope you're proud how you
Would grovel in submission
To feed your own ambition

BOTH
So though I can't imagine how
I hope you're happy right now

GLINDA
(spoken) Elphie, listen to me. Just say you're sorry:
(sung) You can still be with the Wizard
What you've worked and waited for
You can have all you ever wanted:

ELPHABA
(spoken) I know:
(sung) But I don't want it -
No - I can't want it
Anymore:

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
And you can't pull me down!

GLINDA
Can't I make you understand?
You're having delusions of grandeur:

ELPHABA
I'm through accepting limits
''cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!
I'd sooner buy
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I'm defying gravity
And you can't pull me down:

(spoken) Glinda - come with me. Think of what we could
do: together.

(sung) Unlimited
Together we're unlimited
Together we'll be the greatest team
There's ever been
Glinda -
Dreams, the way we planned 'em

GLINDA
If we work in tandem:

BOTH
There's no fight we cannot win
Just you and I
Defying gravity
With you and I
Defying gravity

ELPHABA
They'll never bring us down!
(spoken) Well? Are you coming?

GLINDA
I hope you're happy
Now that you're choosing this

ELPHABA
(spoken) You too
(sung) I hope it brings you bliss

BOTH
I really hope you get it
And you don't live to regret it
I hope you're happy in the end
I hope you're happy, my friend:

ELPHABA So if you care to find me
Look to the western sky!
As someone told me lately:
"Ev'ryone deserves the chance to fly!"
And if I'm flying solo
At least I'm flying free
To those who'd ground me
Take a message back from me
Tell them how I am
Defying gravity
I'm flying high
Defying gravity
And soon I'll match them in renown
And nobody in all of Oz
No Wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down!


GLINDA
I hope you're happy!

CITIZENS OF OZ
Look at her, she's wicked!
Get her!

ELPHABA
:Bring me down!

CITIZENS OF OZ
No one mourns the wicked
So we've got to bring her

ELPHABA
Ahhh!

CITIZENS OF OZ
Down!
I highlighted my favorite lines in purple...but in Wicked, this is one of my favorites.
You say "Witch" like it's a bad thing!

That one is a great one too. I like the whole story, book version more than musical version, where you get to see that good and evil are not so narrowly divided.

I liked the book because of the culture clash the Wizard brought with him, and the fact that this subject brings up the fact that good and evil aren't that clear.

Voices That Care Video

Oh there is a history behind this one. For 15 years, off and on, I have been trying to find this song. However since so many artists were involved in the project, it was hard to nail down since the title had been lost in my memory.

I heard it first when I was deployed to Operation Desert Storm, The First Gulf War for some of the younglings. We actually got to see it several days before it premeired back in the States. This song is as strong as USA for Africa's We Are The World - and even more powerful for me and other Veterans of that time because it was done for us, to show support for us when we were far from home and wondering if we would ever make it back.

To not only have our families support us, but those we looked up to as role models - actors, singers, athletes doing this for us was very moving then and still chokes me up a little even now as the memories come back. Tomorrow is Veteran's day here in the United States, a day when we remember all those that have served, but those that are serving still, and most especially those that gave their last full measure serving. So I feel it is only right and proper to link the video above and offer my salute to not only the past and present soldiers and sailors of the United States Armed Forces, but to all of our Brothers and Sisters who are serving or have served in our Allied Countries, especially those who are with us in the Middle East today.

Image

I was hoping to comeup with a quick poetic statement that expresses the pride and honor I feel having been part of that Community, that "Band of Brothers" (and Sisters), but the words will not come and my agile tongue is stilled. So I simply say - Thank You.

Ladies and gentlemen, please click on the link inthe first line and I present to you -

Voices That Care

Lonely fear lights up the sky
Can't help but wonder why
You're so far away

There, you had to take a stand
In someone else's land
Life can be so strange

I wish we never had to choose
To either win or lose
That we could find a way (We could find a way)

But I won't turn my back again
Your honour I'll defend
So hurry home, and 'til then (til then)

Stand tall, stand proud!
Voices that care are crying out loud
And when you close your eyes tonight
Feel in your heart how our love burns bright (hurry home… ooh)

I'm not here to justify the cause
Or to count up all the loss
That's all been done before

I just can't let you feel alone
When there's so much love at home
We're sending out to you

All the courage that you've known
The bravery you've shown
Clearly lights the way

We pray to make the future bright
To make the wrong things right

Right or wrong, we're all praying you remain strong
That's why we're all here and singing along

Stand tall, stand proud!
Voices that care are crying out loud
And when you close your eyes tonight
Feel in your heart how our love burns bright

You are the voice
You are the light

Stand tall, stand proud!
Voices that care are crying out loud
And when you close your eyes tonight
Feel in your heart how our love burns bright
I'm living in the Shadows and the Night,
Wrapped in warm darkness, safe and sure.
My Path shines by the Moon's fragile light,
It frees my Mind and keeps my Heart pure.

Aint no Reason asp Brett Dylan

There ain’t no reason things are this way.
Its how they always been and they intend to stay.
I can't explain why we live this way
We do it everyday.
Preachers on the podium
speakin’ of saints in seance,
Prophets on the sidewalk
beggin’ for change,
Old ladies laughing from the fire escape,
cursing my name.
I got a basket full of lemons
and they all taste the same,
A window and a pigeon
with a broken wing,

You can spend your whole life workin’ for something
Just to have it taken away.

People walk around
pushing back their debts,
Wearing pay checks
like necklaces and bracelets,

Talking ‘bout nothing,
not thinking ‘bout death,
Every little heartbeat,
every little breath.

People walk a tight rope on a razors edge
Carrying their hurt and hatred and weapons.
It could be a bomb or a bullet or a pen
Or a thought or a word or a sentence.

There Ain't no reason things are this way.
It's how they always been and they intend to stay
I don’t know why I say the things I say, but I say them anyway.

But Love will come set me free
Love will come set me free, I do believe
Love will come set me free, I know it will
Love will come set me free, yes.

Prison walls still standing tall,
Some things never change at all.
Keep on buildin’ prisons,
gonna fill them all,
Keep on buildin’ bombs,
gonna drop them all.
Working your fingers bear to the bone,
Breaking your back -
make you sell your soul.
Like a lung that’s filled with coal,
suffocatin’ slow.
The wind blows wild
and I may move,
The politicians lie
and I am not fooled.

You don't need no reason or a three piece suit to argue the truth.

The air on my skin and the world under my toes,
Slavery stitched into the fabric of my clothes,
Chaos and commotion wherever I go,
love I try to follow.

'Cus Love will come set me free
Love will come set me free, I do believe
Love will come set me free, I know it will
Love will come set me free, yes.

There ain't no reason things are this way
It’s how they always been and they intend to stay
I can't explain why we live this way,
We do it everyday....

---------------------------------

Evil Angel apb Breaking Benjamins

Hold it together,
birds of a feather,
nothing but lies and crooked wings.

I have the answer,
spreading like cancer,
you are the fate inside me.

No-
Don't-
leave me to die here.
Help me survive here...
And no, don't remember, remember.


Put me to sleep evil angel.
Open your wings evil angel.
UP~!

I'm a believer,
Nothing could be worse,
All these imaginary friends.
Hiding betrayal,
Driving the nail,
Hoping to find the savior.

No-
Don't-
Leave me to die here,
help me survive here.
Alone-
Don't-
Surrender! Surrender!


Put me to sleep evil angel.
Open your wings evil angel.
Fly over me evil angel.
Why can't I breathe evil angel?
UP~!

Aint No Rest for the Wicked apb Cage the 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've never seen a man
Who looks so all alone,
Could you use a little company?
If you pay the right price
Your evening will be nice,
And you can go and send me on my way."
I said: "You're such a sweet young thing
Why 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.
No there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good".

Not even fifteen minutes later
I'm still walking down the street,
When I saw a shadow of a man creep out of sight.
Then he walks up from behind
And puts 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,
But if you try to make a move I won't think twice."
I said: "You can have my cash
But first you know I 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,
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.
No there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good".

Now a couple hours passed
And I was sitting at 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
he'd taken money from the church,
He's got this bank account with righteous dollar bills.
But even still I can't say much
Because I know we're all the same,
Oh yes we've all got to satisfy those thrills.

"Oh, there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Money don't grow on trees.
We got bills to pay,
We got mouths to feed,
There ain't nothing in this world for free.
I know we can't slow down,
We can't hold back,
Though you know, we wish we could.
No there ain't no rest for the wicked,
Until we close our eyes for good."
"Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink."
