even when you don’t understand the words.

I’m feeling more than a little bleh right now (between the holidays, work and other things, life is on the sucky end of the scale at the moment), so I went to good old reliable youtube for some feel good music.

From the early ’80s, La Trinca perform Oda al Papel

(please note that the audio and video come from different sources, and both of those are close to thirty years old)


Nothing like Beethoven to make a person feel better.

(and if you understand Spanish, much more so).

The Music I’m Listening To At The Moment…

Surprisingly enough, there are quite a few newish stuff that I’m loving.

This song by Adele actually moves me to tears, there’s such heartbreak in the words, I love it!

Jessie J’s Price tag is so catchy, it’s always on repeat in my car. I’ve posted two versions, the acoustic version and the commercial version:


Radio Version


Live acoustic version

I never used to be a fan of Rihanna’s music, but she’s definitely growing on me, I’m loving her live performances. My favourite record of hers is definitely Only Girl In The World.

And lastly, I know it’s slightly uncool, but I love this song by little man, Justin Bieber, and how cute is Jaden Smith?

What records are you guys enjoying at the moment?

Savage Garden’s Affirmation (Sony Music 1999)

I believe the sun should never set upon an argument
I believe we place our happiness in other people’s hands
I believe that junk food tastes so good because it’s bad for you
I believe your parents did the best job they knew how to do
I believe that beauty magazines promote low self-esteem
I believe I’m loved when I’m completely by myself alone

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can’t appreciate real love ’til you’ve been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye

I believe you can’t control or choose your sexuality
I believe that trust is more important than monogamy
I believe your most attractive features are your heart and soul
I believe that family is worth more than money or gold
I believe the struggle for financial freedom is unfair
I believe the only ones who disagree are millionaires

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can’t appreciate real love ’til you’ve been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got until you say goodbye

I believe forgiveness is the key to your own happiness
I believe that wedded bliss negates the need to be undressed
I believe that God does not endorse TV evangelists
I believe in love surviving death into eternity

I believe in Karma what you give is what you get returned
I believe you can’t appreciate real love until you’ve been burned
I believe the grass is no more greener on the other side
I believe you don’t know what you’ve got ’til you say goodbye

There is only one statement in the lyrics with which I disagree–everything else? Spot on, as far as I’m concerned (can you guess which one?).

*it’s Vivian Arend’s fault for posting her Saturday Snippets, but it all started with Lauren Dane

Huge apologies because I can’t remember, for the life of me, how I found this–I just know it was a chain of links from one blog to the next.

edited to add: Found it! Thank you to Jordan Summers for the first link.
