[Disclaimer: I am not a musician. I can sing. I remember most of the recital piece I played on the piano when I was 6. But I’m not a musician. I know what I like and what I don’t like and what will likely be the soundtrack when I arrive in hell.]

v | verve, the

I know one song by this band… their only single that charted in the US… but I’ve chosen them because I adore that one song. I don’t care about the legal issues with the music and The Rolling Stones. I just love the song. It’s been 20 years and I never seem to get sick of it.

Bitter Sweet Symphony
Cause it’s a bitter sweet symphony, that’s life

Trying to make ends meet
You’re a slave to money then you die
I’ll take you down the only road I’ve ever been down
You know the one that takes you to the place
Where all the veins meet, yeah

No change, I can’t change
I can’t change, I can’t change
But I’m here in my mould
I am here in my mould
But I’m a million different people
From one day to the next
I can’t change my mould
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Well I never pray
But tonight I’m on my knees yeah
I need to hear some sounds that recognize the pain in me, yeah
I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now
But the airwaves are clean and there’s nobody singing to me now

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    The kind of song that sticks in your head all day, seductively worming its way into your consciousness, overwhelming your defences, smoothly laying bare your inhibitions until you do it – you just can’t help it – you open your mouth and sing! 😀
    Hope you’re having a great day, Sandra.
    Kindness – Robert.
