My Song Recommendations

A song recommendation every day (be warned, they will probably all be weird folky songs that no one will have heard of or want to bother with.) Hozier, Sara Bareilles, Hudson Taylor, Passenger, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Vance Joy will all probably be featured quite heavily.

Basically this is just my response to how much I love certain songs and writers at the moment and how I listen to something and get that "weird evangelical zeal, and become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans [hear it]".

Enjoy!

17. Day 16 - Scare Away The Dark

 

Scare Away The Dark by Passenger (sorry about this Passenger over-kill!):

Well, sing, sing at the top of your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

We wish our weekdays away
Spend our weekends in bed
Drink ourselves stupid
And work ourselves dead
And all just because that's what mom and dad said we should do

We should run through the forest
We should swim in the streams
We should laugh, we should cry,
We should love, we should dream
We should stare at the stars and not just the screens
You should hear what I'm saying and know what it means

To sing, sing at the top of your voice,
Love without fear in your heart.
Feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

Well, we wish we were happier, thinner and fitter,
We wish we weren't losers and liars and quitters
We want something more not just nasty and bitter
We want something real not just hash tags and Twitter

It's the meaning of life and it's streamed live on YouTube
But I bet Gangnam Style will still get more views
We're scared of drowning, flying and shooters
But we're all slowly dying in front of fucking computers

So sing, sing at the top of your voice,
Oh, love without fear in your heart.
Can you feel, feel like you still have a choice
If we all light up we can scare away the dark

 

Firstly I should apologise for the fact that this is the second Passenger song in two days and you're probably fairly fed up with me harping on about him. Basically, today I'm continuing the dedication I made yesterday (because it wouldn't let me stick two YouTube videos into yesterdays) and so this song is also for my dad, for the same reasons as yesterday...

It's also for me because I am guilty of wasting my life in the same way and it's also for everybody because the chances are that if you're sitting here you too are slowly dying in front of a fucking computer.

Even if you don't like Passenger's voice and style (or if you're just fed up of him!) please listen to the words because they're words we all need to hear and reflect upon.

I think I'm right in saying that it comes from his album 'Whispers' - God knows, the number of times I've listened to his albums I ought to know!
