Today I have been asked to take part in the Hidden Hearings Meaningful Melodies Competition, It’s a competition where I will list 5 song that have a special meaning to me.
It’s all in connection with the pleasure of sounds and the effects music has on us and we don’t realised.
I am a fond lover of music – I’ve just discovered spotify, yep I have a premium account and absolutely love it. I can sit up all night headphones ‘;singing along. I can even remember when Hayden was in my tummy dancing and singing along to song to get him out. We called it #OperationGetHaydenOut it was so much fun and he loves music so much, maybe because I listened to way to much music all throughout my pregnancy. Was anyone else like that in the last stage of their pregnancy? He now always wiggle his little butt when music comes on – its so cute!
Anyways back on to the subject of the matter!
Have a look at the infograph below – It’s really interesting and lays down the fact!
What do you guys think? Impressive right? Thanks Hidden Hearings for this insight.
I have now got a list of songs which make me happy. Maybe they have hidden meaning… Let me know what you think.
I am absolutely loving this new song by Colbie Caillat – Try, the same lady that made that cute song ‘bubbly’. The favorite part of the song would have to be the very last verse
“Take your make up off
Let your hair down
Take a breath
Look into the mirror, at yourself
Don’t you like you?
Cause I like you”
It’s so refreshing for someone to let us know we don’t actually have to try so hard. With social media Instagram in particular there is always so much pressure to make sure we look our best at all times. Don’t get me wrong there is absolutely wrong with wanting to look your best at all times if that’s what suits you BUT you don’t have to and you should have to feel like you are under pressure to keep up with the Joneses.
It had to be done ladies and gents Pharrell Williams – Happy, mainly because it reminds me of the movie Despicable Me 2 and its one of Hayden’s new words. ‘Happy Mummy?’ Hes always asking if people are happy because he doesn’t want them to be said, especially the ‘baybays’ HAHA. My favorite lyrics would have to be:
“Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do”
I’m pretty sure you can’t listen to this song without feeling Happy!
Love Love Love this song! John Legend – All of Me, The lyrics just blow me away. It’s such a great song to sing for Karaoke too.
I often find myself sending little snippets of the lyrics to Rovi from time to time when hes at work.
“How many times do I have to tell you
Even when you’re crying you’re beautiful too
The world is beating you down, I’m around through every mood
You’re my downfall, you’re my muse
My worst distraction, my rhythm and blues
I can’t stop singing, it’s ringing, in my head for you”
I relationship is hard at the best of times but you absolutely have to give your all to make sure that things work and you stay on the straight and narrow.
Now this one I love because its one of Hayden’s favorites FUSE ODG – Dangerous Love ft. Sean Paul, if he could keep this song on repeat I’m sure he would no matter where he is and he hears this song he will dance… believe me even strapped in his car seat he waves his arms in the air. I don’t blame him the melody is so catchy, even my dad caught himself humming to the song yesterday.
No favorite lyrics to this one as its purely the beat that I love and the fact that Hayden gets so happy when it comes on.
Last but totally not lease! I am obsessed by this song! Kanye West – Black Skinhead (Blkkk SkkkN Head). I mean the beat, the lyrics, the fact its Kayne full stop I mean says it all really. It also reminds me of his proposal to Kim on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Its one of the best proposals I’ve ever seen and the little after party playing this song and everyone dancing around it looked like so much fregging fun!
Four in the morning, and I’m zonin’
They say I’m possessed, it’s an omen
I keep it 300, like the Romans
300 bitches, where’s the Trojans?
Baby we livin’ in the moment
I’ve been a menace for the longest
But I ain’t finished I’m devoted
And you know it, and you know it
I don’t care what anyone says: he may come across as an arrogant young man but I think he is a legend – Hes music is always on point!
And that my friends concludes my top 5 hidden hearing songs! I would love to know yours too, let me know at least one!
