I want to Sing and Shout

Ok this a random post, I’ve been listened to BBC Radio 1 while doing my work. In the middle of clutter,  there have been cool songs coming through. Like Dappy “No Regrets” despite the recently has been going on with him. It’s a pretty awesome tune. Another bunch songs that have stood out for me is Professor Green “Read All About It” (feat Emeli Sande), Florence & The Machine Shake It Out and Lana Del Rey “Video Game.”

Professor Green “Read All About It” (Feat Emeli Sande)

Proffessor Green is a British rapper dubbed the new Eminem. He is lyrical amazing. I first came across to one of his singles called “Just Be Good To Green” featuring Lily Allen (another favorite). I liked that song and I uncovered more of his stuff, got blown away. “Read All About It” is song I can relate to especially with the family and father bit. It leaves you with loads emotions of hurt, love and truth.

Lyrics (taken from http://www.songonlyrics.com)

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it
Oh

Nothing to hide
[…]
Suffered and cried
Strife made me tougher
Never […]
The trouble […]
Expectations to get rep
Ain’t never begged yet
When I wanted to get pence, hustle,
To be, I’m exactly what my neck says
Saying I tried to cash in on my Dad’s death,
I wanted to vent ‘stead I said nothing at all
After all you were never kin to me,
Family is something that you never been to me,
In fact making it harder for me to see my father was the only thing that
You ever did for me

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it, oh
As a kid I looked up to you,
Only thing was I never saw enough of you
Last thing I said to you was I hated you,
I loved you but now it’s too late to say to you
Just didn’t know what to do and how to deal with it,
Even now deep down I still live it
To think, I used to blame me,
I wonder what I did to you to make you hate me
I wasn’t even 5, life’s a journey and mine wasn’t an easy ride

You never even got to see me rap,
I just wish you woulda reached out,
I wish you woulda been round when I been down
I wish that you could see me now,
Wherever you are I really hope you find peace
But know that if I ever have kids,
Unlike you I’ll never let them be without me

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it, oh

Everything I have, I give to you
In every one of these lines I sing to you
My job’s more like public service
My life just became yours to read and interpret
If you heard it it’d come across a lot different at times
I throw fits when I read how they word things
You see me smile
Now you’re gonna have to see me hurtin’
Coz pretending everything is alright when it ain’t, really isn’t working

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it, oh

I ain’t censoring myself for nobody
I’m the only thing I can be,
All that is good, all that is bad, all that is, me

I wanna sing, I wanna shout
I wanna scream till the words dry out
So put it in all of the papers, I’m not afraid
They can read all about it, read all about it, oh

Florence and the Machine “Shake It Out”

Florence Welch’s haunting and indescribable beautiful voice caught me when I was UK as the band was just beginning. But I started loving the band from “You’ve Got the Love.” Thier album “Lung” is well crafted and looking forward to their upcoming album, “Ceremonials.”  Their single “Shake It Out”  from the upcoming album puts them on another level – it’s spiritual and somehow uplifting.

Lyrics (taken from http://www.songonlyrics.com)

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play

And every demon wants his pound of flesh
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong
It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around

And our love is pastured such a mournful sound
Tonight I’m gonna bury that horse in the ground
So I like to keep my issues strong
But it’s always darkest before the dawn

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

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

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

And given half the chance would I take any of it back
It’s a final mess but it’s left me so empty
It’s always darkest before the dawn

Oh woah, oh woah…

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, for the devil in me
Looking for heaven, for the devil in me
Well what the hell I’m gonna let it happen to me

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah
Shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, shake it out, ooh woaaah

And it’s hard to dance with a devil on your back
So shake him off, oh woah

Lana Del Rey “Video Game”

Lana Del Rey is an American singer, I don’t know much about her. I liked her this single, it simple and doesn’t feel it’s a laboured song.

Lyrics (taken from http://www.lyricsreg.com)

Swinging in the backyard
Pull up in your fast car
Whistling my name

Open up a beer
And you say get over here
And play a video game

I’m in his favorite sun dress
Watching me get undressed
Take that body downtown

I say you the bestest
Lean in for a big kiss
Put his favorite perfume on

Go play a video game

It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It’s better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby now you do

Singing in the old bars
Swinging with the old stars
Living for the fame

Kissing in the blue dark
Playing pool and wild darts
Video games

He holds me in his big arms
Drunk and I am seeing stars
This is all I think of

Watching all our friends fall
In and out of Old Paul’s
This is my idea of fun
Playing video games

It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It’s better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby now you do

(Now you do)

It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
Tell me all the things you want to do
I heard that you like the bad girls
Honey, is that true?
It’s better than I ever even knew
They say that the world was built for two
Only worth living if somebody is loving you
Baby now you do

Within Temptation  “Faster”

Note didn’t mention this song earlier. But this band, Within Temptation, always amazes me. In my option the, Sharon den Adel, Within Temptation singer’s voice is better Amy Lee of Evanescence. I first came across them on thier live album Black Symphony. Every single time I listen to that, I always get goosebumps. “Faster” is cleverly written song from their latest album The Unforgiving.

Lyrics (taken from http://www.hotnewsonglyrics.com)

I can’t see, cause it’s burning deep inside.
Like gasoline, a fire running wild.
No more fear, cause I’m getting closer now.
So unreal, but I like it anyhow.

I go faster and faster and faster
and faster and faster and faster and faster.

I can’t live in a fairytale of lies.
And I can’t hide from the feeling cause it’s right.
And I go faster and faster and faster and faster for love.
And I can’t live in a fairytale of lies.

I can feel that you’ve mezmerized my heart.
I feel so free.
I’m alive, I’m breaking out.
I won’t give in, cause I’m proud of all my scars.
And I can see I’ve been wasting too much time.
