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.

Music and Healing

“When you’re happy you enjoy the music,

when you’re sad you understand the lyrics.”

~ Frank Ocean

I often find myself humming some random tune from the past that seems to somewhat magically pop into my head. When I stop what I’m doing and think about the words or google the lyrics they always relate to what I’m feeling or experiencing emotionally at that moment in time.

I love that… it’s magic

I love the healing power of words and music.

Like everything in life there is light and dark, there is healing music and destructive music.

Next time you find some song stuck in your head, check out the lyrics  – you may be surprised and the words may just soothe your soul :o)

 Here’s some visual gorgeousness in the form of lyrics, typography and art from The Beatles

Three of their inspired song lyrics have been healing and stuck in my head in the past..

‘Blackbird’

‘Let It Be’

‘Here Comes The Sun’

So beautiful

‘Cups’ (When I’m Gone) – In Irish

2012 song by Lulu and The Lampshades based on the 1931 song ‘When I’m Gone’

I got my ticket for the long way round
Two bottles of whiskey for the way
And I sure would like some sweet company
And I’m leaving tomorrow, what do you say

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me talk, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

I got my ticket for the long way round
The one with the prettiest of views
It’s got mountains
It’s got rivers
It’s got sights to give you shivers
But it sure would be prettier with you

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me by my everywhere, oh
Oh you’re sure gonna miss me when I’m gone

When I’m gone
When I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my walk
You’re gonna miss me by my talk, oh
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Time In A Bottle ~ Jim Croce (1973)

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that I’d like to do
Is to save every day
‘Til eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
I’d save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

[Chorus]
But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
I’ve looked around enough to know
That you’re the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

[Chorus]

Homeward Bound – Simon & Garfunkel

I’m sitting in the railway station.
Got a ticket for my destination.
On a tour of one-night stands my suitcase and guitar in hand.
And every stop is neatly planned for a poet and a one-man band.

[Chorus]
Homeward bound,
I wish I was,
Homeward bound,
Home where my thought’s escaping,
Home where my music’s playing,
Home where my love lies waiting
Silently for me.

Every day’s an endless stream
Of cigarettes and magazines.
And each town looks the same to me,
The movies and the factories
And every stranger’s face I see reminds me that I long to be,

[Chorus]

Tonight I’ll sing my songs again,
I’ll play the game and pretend.
But all my words come back to me in shades of mediocrity
Like emptiness in harmony I need someone to comfort me.

[Chorus]

Silently for me.
