Fix You ~ Coldplay

 

 

When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse
And the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can’t replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Music ~ ‘Life Is Worth Living’

Brave, raw and moving video (the ending is beautiful..).

I love the expression of pain through dance…  I think being able to express your pain in some form is one of the most important things in recovering from depression. Finding a way to express your pain rather than suppress it – whether you write, dance, paint, sing or find a loving soul that will simply listen to you. You need to release it.

I love that the woman dancer isn’t wearing makeup, hasn’t had her hair done and isn’t covered in fake tan!

She isn’t the usual picture perfect idealized (and highly sexualized) woman that seem to be portrayed as ‘normal’ in most mainstream music videos..  haha we all know that is faaaar from reality!!

Fool On The Hill ~ The Beatles

The Fool Archetype

The Fool archetype although often simple-minded, acts with a good heart and is usually rewarded for it. Modern film characters such as Forrest Gump and Nurse Betty embody this aspect of the archetype, which does not so much impart wisdom as foster living with kindness and simplicity.

Day after day
Alone on a hill
The man with the foolish grin
Is keeping perfectly still
But nobody wants to know him
They can see that he’s just a fool
And he never gives an answer

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

Well on the way
Head in a cloud
The man of a thousand voices
Talking perfectly loud

But nobody ever hears him
Or the sound he appears to make
And he never seems to notice

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

And nobody seems to like him
They can tell what he wants to do
And he never shows his feelings

But the fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round, oh oh oh, round round round round

He never listens to them
He knows that they’re the fools
They don’t like him

The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning round

Oh, round round round round, oh

Better Be Good To Me (2 mins)

Okay this clip is so funny.. Paul Rudd’s lip syncing is hilarious (1:05) and Tina Turner is at her finest in 80s dramatic :o)

 I do love the song’s strong lyrics

“You better be good to me, that’s how it’s gotta be now..”

A prisoner of your love
Entangled in your web
Hot whispers in the night
I’m captured by your spell
Oh yes I’m touched by this show of emotion
Should I be fractured by your lack of devotion
Should I, should I?You better be good to me
That’s how it’s gotta be now
Cause I don’t have no use
For what you loosely call the truth
You better be good to me

I think it’s also right
That we don’t need to fight
We stand face to face
And you present your case
And I know you keep telling me that you love me
And I really do want to believe
But did you think I’d just accept you in blind faith
Oh sure babe, anything to please youYou better be good to me
That’s how it’s gotta be now
Cause I don’t have the time
For your over loaded lines
You better be good to me

And I really don’t see why it’s so hard to be good to me
And I don’t understand what’s your plan that you can’t be good to me
What I can’t feel I surely cannot see, why can’t you be good to me
And if it’s not real I do not wish to see, why can’t you be good to me.
