Min kĂ€ra underbara mormor banade vĂ€gen för mig för mĂ„nga mĂ„nga Ă„r sen. Strax över tretti, efter att ha fĂ„tt tre barn, sökte hon sig in i yrkeslivet för att arbeta som sekreterare. Ett par Ă„r senare …

The Cure – Lullaby

This is an amazing song from a really good band, The Cure. So Goth, so poetic, so epic. The video is also cool and kind of creepy:

Lyrics

on candystripe legs spiderman comes
softly through the shadow of the evening sun
stealing past the windows of the blissfully dead
looking for the victim shivering in bed
searching out fear in the gathering gloom and
suddenly! a movement in the corner of the
room! and there is nothing i can do when i
realise with freight that the spiderman is having
me for dinner tonight

quietly he laughs and shaking his head creeps
closer now closer to the foot of the bed and
softer than shadow and quicker than flies his
arms are all around me and his tongue in my
eyes “be still be calm be quiet now my precious
boy don’t struggle like that or i will only love
you more for it’s much too late to get away or
turn on the light the spiderman is having you
for dinner tonight”

 

 

and i feel like i’m being eaten by a thousand
million shivering furry holes and i know that in
the morning i will wake up in the shivering cold
and the spiderman is always hungry…

 

Lana Del Rey – Summertime sadness

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Just a wonderful song of a cool artist. Love her deep dark voice 🙂 and of course the sadness.

No, I don’t present you the latest artists. My main focus is being on the other side, I’m focusing on producing music. But of course I need the input and some artists are very inspiring.

Some lyrics:

Kiss me hard before you go
Summertime sadness
I just wanted you to know
That, baby, you’re the best

I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive

Oh, my God, I feel it in the air
Telephone wires above are sizzling like a snare
Honey, I’m on fire, I feel it everywhere
Nothing scares me anymore

// Lana Del Rey- Summertime sadness.

Djup röst och melankoli, kan det bli bĂ€ttre? Nej, trodde inte det 🙂

Inget nytt men mitt fokus Àr att producera inte konsumera. Och inspiration behövs ju dÀr ocksÄ.

Blood roses – Tori Amos

Well, this blog is also totally about my inspiration for my own music. And how can I not write something about those amazing artists out there that I totally adore? Like Tori Amos!

My favorite lyrics from the song Blood Roses (scroll down for the video):

Can’t forget the things you never said
On days like these starts me thinking
When chickens get a taste of your meat girl
Chickens get a taste of your meat yes

You gave him you blood
And your warm little diamond
He likes killing you after you’re dead
You think I’m a queer
I think you’re a queer …

I chose this song just because it’s only her and the piano.When I recorded my music for my album I had a hard time finding reference music that had few instruments but ofcourse Tori Amos have had those types of albums. When I have referenced to her as an inspirational source I have heard that the inspiration also comes through in my music which for me is a huge statement I am truly happy for!

// Tori Amos Àr verkligen en artist som inspirerat mig mycket och vars musik tilltalar mig. Musiken Àr i vissa album avskalad vilket har varit en bra resurs nÀr jag spelade in mitt album. Jag har ocksÄ fÄtt höra att det hörs att jag har hennes musik som inspiration vilket sÄklart Àr mycket glÀdjande.

Texten Àr frÄn hennes lÄt som syns i videon, Blood roses.

Thank you toriamosrules1 for the video!
