september playlist: hearts on fire

Click on image to listen to this playlist on Spotify

As a singer/songwriter, I know what it is to "feel the music" in a whole other sense that very few people can understand. When I hear music, I have this sixth sense to recognize when a singer/artist is giving it their all, and suddenly it's more than just a song -- it's got someone's burning, beating, beautiful heart smashed right in the middle. You don't hear many songs with a lot of heart and soul poured violently into them (especially in studio versions, I find) but when you do find those songs, it's like stumbling across a rare and beautiful gem. It's awesome, in other words. These songs are like that for me. Enjoy. ♥

  1. Weeeeeeeeeellll.....

    FIRST OF ALL YES TO "JUST SMOKE" YESSSSS.

    I need to look up some of the songs you listed.

    But I'm not gonna lie, even though I liked the lyrics to "I bet my life" I have a hard time listening to it, because in the refrain, when they're like, 'AND IIII, I BET MY LIIIFE, I BET MY LIFE.." I SWEAR IT SOUNDS LIKE AN ELEPHANT IS TRUMPETING IN THE BACKROUND AND I JUST CAN"T.

    As it is, right now, I'm currently obsessed with:

    Yellow Boxes by Tyler Ward
    Wonderland by Taylor Swift
    My Heart Was Home Again by Josh Groban. (Who is baaaeee)
    And anything Phantom of the Opera.

    1. Eeee, yes! I just recently discovered Just Smoke and I wuv it so. ♥ OH MAN AN ELEPHANT TRUMPETING OH MY GOSH AHAHHA. That is so funny (literally I have no loyalties (to anything) so say whatever you want. xD) Have you heard the Riot Games remix of I Bet My Life though? I'm fairly sure you'd love it. It's all theatrical and classical and epic and omg. You should check it out. Yes. And I'm going to totally check out those songs you listed! I love me new music. <3 Thanks for sharing, Treskie!!

    Music that I've been in love with lately....

    "Agape" by Bear's Den. I honestly don't know quite what it is about that song, but I like whatever it is.
    "Son" by Sleeping at Last. Sleeping at Last.....just yeah. He's really good at writing lyrics.
    "All Coming Together" by Nick Flora. Because...yeah. I wish I could write music like that.
    "On Jordan's Stormy Banks" by Indelible Grace. Yep. I just fell in love with a new hymn. Because it's beautiful.

kind words are like raindrops on the desert. they make me bloom with happiness, as absolutely cliche and cheesy as that sounds. even if it's just a simple alt+3 i will heart you for it. so, go ahead! MAKE MY DAY. literally.
