Songs to ponder

There are so many songs out there. Some you can sing in the shower, some you can dance to and a few with rhyme and rhythm. Have you ever heard a song and wondered whether they took the lyrics out of your life? Have you ever heard a song that changed the way you think? If not, here are a few.

#1. Happiness Is An Option (Pet Shop Boys)
It is not easy
But dont give up now
(so dont give up)
It is not easy
Happiness is an option

Its a strong statement and one I whole-heartedly subscribe to.

Happiness is an option, Lets see.
My day began with rain. I can be happy that the grass is getting watered for free or I can grumble because irrespective of the umbrella I was drenched.
That was a straightforward and trivial example in my script of life. If only all life matters were that simple!

#2 Do You Have A Little Time (Dido)

Do you have a little time
If you're feeling low and lost today
You're probably doing too much again
You spend all your hours just rushing around
Do you have a little time
Do you have a little time for me?

We all live in a mad rush. Have you considered asking God for an extension to 24 hours?
Daily demands make it difficult (if not impossible!) to make time for others. But sometimes, thats the best gift possible.

#3 Stupid Mistake (Gareth Gates)

It can happen to...
Anyone of us, anyone you think of
Anyone can fall
Anyone can hurt someone they love
Hearts will break
'Cause I made a stupid mistake

heart break, loneliness, anger, hate -oh the stupid mistake
Temptation the only thing you cant resist huh ?

#4 If I Let You Go (Westlife)

But if I let you go
I will never know
what my life would be
holding you close to me
will I ever see
you smiling back at me
oh yeah
how will I know
If I let you go

Should you try a bit more? Is it the right time to let go? Oh the questions of the heart.

#5 Too Much Love Will Kill You (Queen)

Too much love will kill you
Just as sure as none at all
It'll drain the power that's in you
Make you plead and scream and crawl
And the pain will make you crazy
You're the victim of your crime
Too much love will kill you
Every time


#6 Until I Find You Again (Richard Marx)

How many dreams will end?
How long can I pretend?
How many times will love pass me by,
Until I find you again?

Don't listen to this song if you want to uplift your spirits!

#7 I Will Survive (Gloria Gaynor)

I will survive
As long as I know how to love
I know I will stay alive
I've got all my life to live
I've got all my love to give
And I'll survive

Life provides enough built in roadblocks. Yet the journey continues. I will survive! So will you!

Keep it to Yourself
Billy Joel

I don't need you to worry for me cause I'm allright.
I don't want you to tell me it's time to come home.
I don't care what you say anymore this is my life.
Go ahead with your own life leave me alone.

I spent too many years living the life someone else wanted me to live. Now I am me. If you don't like me, don't try to change me. Get used to it, or walk.

Alexisonfire - Happiness By The Kilowatt. Such a great song. Thank you for the comment on my site.

Not too many that changed my life, but one that really intrigues me (it might be before your time):

"Summer Breeze" by Seals & Crofts.

Did you ever really listen to the words of this song? It's all about someone coming home from work on a Friday night on a summer evening. It describes only his trip from the sidewalk into his destination of the kitchen...but I swear, you can see the sun setting in the sky, lights beginning to turn on, smell the summer air and just about hear the crickets chirping from the descriptiveness of the lyrics. A huge hit in the 70's, and gee, sex wasn't even mentioned once! ;)

Take good care,

Thank you very much for your comments.

I listened to 'Keep it to Yourself'. good one!

I couldn't find the music for the Happiness By The Kilowatt or Summer Breeze yet. However I did go through the and found it moving. Can't wait to get my hand on the songs!

by Charlie Chaplin

Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by.

If you smile through your fear and sorrow.

Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you.

What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world

The colours of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shakin' hands, sayin' "How do you do?"
They're really saying "I love you"

I hear babies cryin', I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll ever know
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world
Yes, I think to myself, what a wonderful world

Oh yeah
