Try

I found a new favorite song. I’d heard P!nk had a new album coming out, so when I saw @RachelFirasek’s post on Twitter that she was listening to P!nk I went out investigating….

And found THIS:

Now, personally, I find some of P!nk’s music…disturbing, in both a good and bad way. Most of my friends know that the F-word makes my ears bleed (LOL) and P!nk has been known to share the word in her songs…even titles of her songs.

But if I look past that and really read some of her lyrics. That girl has some seriously powerful songs. She really gets you thinking.

In TRY, I find these lyrics the most powerful.

Where there is a flame someone’s bound to get burned.

I’m sure you can interpret that a million different ways. But it struck me in this way….

Fire is passion. Passion not just for another person or love, but in throwing your heart and soul out there for all to see. That’s what it’s like with the books I write. Writing is a passion of mine and it’s a bit of my soul out there, vulnerable with each book that gets published.

I’ve gotten burned. I will continue to get burned. But like P!nk says in her next phrase:

But just because it burns, doesn’t mean you’re gonna die.

So true. Not everyone will like my characters, my writing style, my stories….but that’s okay. I can’t not write. So, if you’re venturing out, doing something you love and you get a bit scared.

Don’t. You’ll possibly get burned, but you won’t die.

You got to get up and try, try, try!!!

Debate This…P!nk vs Blondie

Debate This is all about voicing your opinion on really important things, such as Pepsi Vs. Coke, Nike Vs. Converse, and Twinkies Vs. Ho-Hos. **smile** Okay, so maybe they’re not super important, but they’re at least fun things to jaw about. . . .

Be sure to cast your vote on the poll below. I’ll share the results later. . . .

P!nk vs Blondie

You all know I love P!nk. Her unique voice, the pink hair, and powerful lyrics. But Blondie, back in the day, with the black streak in her blond hair and her unique voice…she was pretty good, too.

They each bring some unique things to the table. Blondie was edgy for her time as P!nk is edgy for this time.

Musical Monday–Emma Style

Hey, everyone. Emma Martin, here.

I convinced Lynn to let me host the blog this week! No special reason–okay, I lie–there’s totally a special reason….She finished my third book.

Yep. Violet Storm is done. Sure, it’s just a rough draft, but hey, three books about little ‘ol me–I’m stoked.

Anyway… she said I could host the blog to help celebrate since it’s one of my favorite things to do. I’m actually considering starting my own. . . but we’ll see.

Okay, on to the song. Now, I know Lynn likes P!nk, but the songs she likes are pretty old. This new one, Raise Your Glass, is awesome. Sure, there are a couple swear words but the energy that oozes off of the song ROCKS. It just gets me pumped up to go out and kick some demon a–*cough*butt.

Plus I can kind of relate when P!nk talks about underdogs and freaks. I’m pretty much both…I mean, purple eyes, a tattoo that glows and burns like the fire of Hades near demons . . . .

Anyway, here you go. Hope you enjoy.

What songs are rockin’ your world right now? What gets you pumped up and ready to jump out on the dance floor?

Musical Mondays

Happy Monday. I hope you had a great weekend. For today’s song, I picked P!NK’s “Please Don’t Leave Me.”

Ever heard it?

I’m a pretty big fan of P!NK’s  (Yeah, don’t judge me**smile**) and this song, like Sober, really hit home with me. It’s just so easy to hurt the ones we love the most, isn’t it?. . . this song paints that picture well.

I picked a You  Tube that has only lyrics, cuz I think the actual video dampens the true meaning with its humor, but if you want, you can google the true video if you want. I just love the lyrics.

My favorite lyrics are:

I forgot to say out loud,

How beautiful you really are to me,

I can’t be without,

You’re my perfect little punching bag,

And I need you,

I’m sorry.

So, what’s your current favorite song? Do tell, I need to download some new tunes
