Shake It Out – Glee

It’s sunny Good Friday! I’m not particularly religious by any means, but am always grateful for having days off work. ๐Ÿ˜€ I’m in the mood in sharing something beautiful and suiting for this day, and decided on one of my favorite songs of all time ‘Shake it Out’, originally by Florence + The Machine. Not that I don’t like their rendition, I adore it. But just not as much as I adore Glee’s all female version of it. It just feels like a song that’s supposed to be acoustic. Enjoy and have a peaceful Good Friday.

My favorite parts of the lyrics:

“And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself”

“And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind”

“And I am done with my graceless heart
So tonight I’m gonna cut it out and then restart
‘Cause I like to keep my issues strong
It’s always darkest before the dawn”

“And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
And given half the chance would I take any of it back”

“And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t
So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road
And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark and right at my throat
‘Cause looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Looking for heaven, found the devil in me
Well what the hell, I’m gonna let it happen to me”

Love My Way- The Psychedelic Furs

Happy Friday! There are good and bad sides about me not paying much attention to the Western music scene when I was in my teens and early twenties, and I’ve never listened to the radio much. And I also didn’t have parents that would educate me about their favorite music (cos they kind listen to the same Chinese songs over and over again). So I have a very limited knowledge of music from the wild wild west. The negative thing is, there can be some song that everybody knows but I’ve never heard of it. But the positive thing is also that there are tons of songs that everybody knows but are completely new to me. It’s just like that with ‘Love My Way’ by ‘The Psychedelic Furs’. I’m still inside the ‘Call Me By My Name’ bubble and I absolutely love this song. Hope you enjoy it too. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great Friday!

My favorite parts from the lyrics:

“Love my way, it’s a new road,
I follow where my mind goes
So swallow all your tears, my love
And put on your new face
You can never win or lose
If you don’t run the race”
