My Music Therapy

I have been tagged by the lovely Jenny over at Mummy Mishaps to join in with the latest Meme started by MammyWoo.

The Meme is simple, if you would like to join in:

Select 3 Songs by 3 different artists and 3 sets of lyrics that touch you in some way.

Its really hard to choose a specific set of lyrics. We listen to a lot of music in this house by so many different artists, that sometimes its hard to select just 3 artists….but I’m willing to give it a shot!!

1. Anastacia “I Dreamed You” – This was our First Dance after we were married. It sums up exactly how we both felt from the first time we met (although we didn’t actually get together until over a year later). Anastacia was also the first Concert that we ever went to together.

“It’s hard to explain
but when you know you know
I was so amazed by you
you had me and: ‘hello’
I need you in my heart
my body, mind and soul”
2.Jessie J “Who’s Laughing Now” – There are a few of the verses that I want to pick from this song. I was bullied through my schooling, so know how tough it can be. I love how Jessie J has turned this round and has shown the bullies for what they are! Bullying is a form of jealousy and cowardliness and I love that such a prominent person in the limelight is bringing this issue to our attention and letting everyone know who is being bullied that YOU CAN BE SOMEONE!

“Mummy they call me names
They wouldn’t let me play
I’d run home, sit and cry almost everyday
‘Hey Jessica, you look like an alien
With green skin you don’t fit in this playpen’
Well they pull my hair
They took away my chair
I keep it in and pretend that I didn’t care
‘Hey Jessica, you’re so funny
You’ve got teeth just like Bugs bunny’
Oh, so you think you know me now
Have you forgotten how
You would make me feel
When you drag my spirit down
But thank you for the pain
It made me raise my game
And I’m still rising, I’m still rising

So make your jokes
Go for broke
Blow your smoke
You’re not alone
But who’s laughing now
But who’s laughing now
So raise the bar
Hit me hard
Play your cards
Be a star
But who’s laughing now”
3.  Nat King Cole “Unforgettable” – I’ve chosen this song because I cannot listen to it without it making me cry. It is the song that was played and my Nan’s funeral as her coffin was walked out of the church on the way to her burial. My nan was a lovely woman and simply is Unforgettable.

“Unforgettable
That’s what you are,
Unforgettable
Tho’ near or far.
Like a song of love that clings to me,
How the thought of you does things to me.
Never before
Has someone been more…
Unforgettable


In every way,
And forever more
That’s how you’ll stay.
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am
Unforgettable, too.
Unforgettable
In every way,
And forever more
That’s how you’ll stay.
That’s why, darling, it’s incredible
That someone so unforgettable
Thinks that I am
Unforgettable, too.”

There you are, my 3 songs by 3 different artists and 3 sets of lyrics that mean different things to me.

I am meant to ‘tag’ people to complete this, but I know there are a lot out there already…so I will just leave it open! If you fancy having a go, if you could link back to me that would be great!!

    I didn't know the Jessie J lyrics. They're really good.. I wonder what “Jessica” thinks of it now.
