Deep Thoughts by Hope Between The Dreams

Sometimes I get so overwhelmed with all the things I feel pulled to fight for in this crazy world of ours. I am a born peace keeper, but fighting is now second nature to me after all I’ve been through.

You gotta keep your mind sharp & your heart straight & just trust them not to lead you astray. I think that’s the best we can do ♥

I Sing These Carols To You My Friends…

Okay, so I know it’s a silly song… but it makes me smile. It’s giggle-worthy indeed. AND hippopotomusesus is a fabulous word too. Admit it.

Favorite line by FAR – “Mother says a hippo would eat me up but then teacher says that hippos are vegetarians!” Hehe :)

This song is hauntingly beautiful, just like a proper Coldplay song should be. No? What’s my favorite line from this song you ask?

“Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights, keep shining on.”

For me, it’s not even Christmas without this song. Joni created the hauntingly beautiful holiday feeling thing with this song IMHO. Favorite line?

“It’s coming on Christmas. They’re cutting down trees. They’re putting up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace.”

*YOU WILL WANT TO TURN THE VOLUME ALL THE WAY UP FOR THIS SONG*

“What Child Is This?” is a popular Christmas carol written in 1865. At the age of twenty-nine, English writer William Chatterton Dix was struck with a sudden near-fatal illness and confined to bedrest for several months, during which he went into a deep depression. Yet out of his near-death experience, Dix wrote many hymns, including “What Child is This?”, later set to the traditional English tune “Greensleeves.”

Amy Whitcomb was a contestant in the group Delilah on this season’s The Sing-Off. She was one of my favorite singers by far and now this is one of my favorite versions of Silent NIght that I’ve ever heard. She has the most gorgeous voice and Jake Justice is amazing on piano <3

All Time Favorite Line From A Christmas Song EVER –

“SLEEP IN HEAVENLY PEACE!”

(I hope you enjoyed this compilation & it made you smile & remember what this season is truly about. LOVE ONE ANOTHER!)

Stone Temple Pilots – Big Empty (Ohhhh Yeahhhhh)

There’s something so SEXY about this song to me. It takes me back to high school, driving around listening to this album while we fled from one parking area to the next to outsmart the cops every weekend. Ahhh, yes – those were the days ;)

Shortly before Chris’s birthday I found out he’d never heard this album or STP. *HUH???* So I turned his birthday into a “musical birthday” & introduced him to this album & the newest album “Lover Boy” by the amazing and talented Brett Dennen & a “Time Life’s Bluegrass Treasury” I found in the discount bin for a dollar at Hastings (my favorite local provider of music, movies, books, random things you never knew you wanted but had to have). Who else remembers Time Life’s awesome CD twin-packs???

*GEEKS OUT FOR A BRIEF MOMENT*

It was one of the gifts I’m most proud of ever having given simply because I shared things I loved most with the guy I love most ♥ And what’s not to love about that?

I know nobody buys CD’s anymore & I am totally “old school”. So sue me. I like to be able to TOUCH my music and OWN it. Yeah, I still burn it to my wireless laptop & hard drive the second I listen to it, but there’s something so gratifying about being able to hold your music that takes me WAY back :)

But that’s a whole other topic in itself, so goodnight. I must bid you adieu & head to bed…
