A lovely gift in the form of Music

I attended my first music concert of a popular musician, Imelda May, thanks to Mr M 😉 She is an Irish Musician and I absolutely adore and love her style of music. The performance was in London Palladium. It is a compact theatre. I loved the acoustics there.

The performance was opened by Jack Lukeman, who delivered a very powerful and entertaining performance from his latest album, Magic Days. The highlight was his King of Soho song. The audience got all warmed up by his songs and imagine the whole theatre singing the chorus for that song.

By the time Imelda May came to stage we were all revved up. She started her set with her song Call Me from here latest album and slowly and steadily the tempo started to rise. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to her perform live. I love her voice even more now that I know how she sounds on stage. There were quite a good variety, rock, pop, jazz, soul, etc…and she carried it all with elan. The whole band was a delight to watch. They had such a lovely synchronisation. There were also some titbits of information about the songs. And she was very cute and shy when audiences called out how much they love her. A true artist.

I wouldn’t mind going again to her performance. An absolute delight she was. And that this was my birthday gift makes it even more special. 😉 Thank you Mr M.

I could never be

There is a slight change in the way the Song Lyric Sunday is playing from now on 🙂 Helen has given us a prompt and this week its called ‘90’s music‘. Now, I am a person who doesn’t know when a song came out. All I hear is the music and if I like it I have it, irrespective of year and time.  That includes the music I got from my friends too. I think I will take the help of Google whenever possible for the prompts from here on 🙂 .
Thankfully, after a few misses I found a hit from my playlist. This song was one from my friend’s playlist. He loves alternative music. The unspoken rule amongst us friends is that the music in the car will be the choice of the driver and this friend loves to drive. And since we like his music too (even though a couple of us are more of Pop fans) we let him have his way. This was one among them and I loved it. I found the lyrics quite interesting because it was sung by a man but in the point of view of a woman. I should say that I got confused with what the song was about and had to check out Wikipedia for the same. But nevertheless, it is a good song and I hope you enjoy it too.

Lyrics from A-Z Lyrics

Just tell me what you’ve got to say to me,
I’ve been waiting for so long to hear the truth,
It comes as no surprise at all you see,
So cut the crap and tell me that we’re through.

Now I know your heart, I know your mind,
You don’t even know you’re being unkind,
So much for all your high brow Marxist ways,
Just use me up and then you walk away.
Boy, you can’t play me that way.

Well I guess what you say is true,
I could never be the right kind of girl for you,
I could never be your woman.

I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman.

When I saw my best friend yesterday,
She said she never liked you from the start,
Well me, I wish that I could claim the same,
But you always knew you held my heart.

And you’re such a charming, handsome man,
Now I think I finally understand,
Is it in your genes, I don’t know,
But I’ll soon find out, that’s for sure,
Why did you play me this way?

Well I guess what you say is true,
I could never be the right kind of girl for you,
I could never be your woman.

I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman.

Well I guess what they say is true,
I could never spend my life with a man like you.
I could never be your woman.

I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman,
I could never be your woman.

PillowTalk

Definitely not the one sung by Zayn, even though Jimmy Fallon did a good and funny lip sync of that song, I am not a fan of it. I am not sure when and where I found this song, but I absolutely love this lady’s voice. She has such powerful voice. You should hear her sing about ‘Simple Things‘ too. Amazing voice and beautiful songs.

This song ‘No More PillowTalk’ is about broken romances. The choreography of this video is also quite unique and done very beautifully. She and her songs deserve more views than what they are now. I would love to see her rise in the music scene with more hits.

Lyrics were from her YouTube video description.

We lay,
All the way down,
Like the world has fallen off the universe.
I told you every story that I’d ever done,
What is just a story for another one, gives a lesson to you.
Take it and run.

Why, why do I care?
Why, why do I try?

No more pillow talking.
No more pillow talking.

I used to have a drink when we got home,
it always took the fear out of my mind.
I’ll never have the chance to forget you,
Cuz you are in my life for the long ride.
I used to be a sinner baby, I had that fire in my eyes.
I’m done with pillow talking,
Cuz all your promises are lies.

Why, why do I care?
Why, why do I try?

Oh, No more pillow talking.
No more pillow talking.
I said, No more pillow talking.
Oh, No more pillow talking.
This is your last beginning, you said enough already, it’s too late for that.
Oh, this is your last beginning, you said enough already. It’s too late!
Oh, No more pillow talking.
No more pillow talking.
I said, No more pillow talking.
Oh, No more pillow talking.
No more pillow talking, It’s too late.
Oh, yea it’s too late.
