*Crackling noise in the background*
Soon noise fills the near-empty room, sound bouncing off the walls. It is a woman's voice, with an Australian accent. She is known to the public as Lenka.
I'm just a little bit caught in the middle. Life is a maze and love is a riddle.
I don't know where to go, can't do it alone. I've tried, and I don't know why.
After about four minutes, it is again silent except for the familiar crackling sound. But soon enough, a melody starts up again. This time a man sings. The piano echos the tune. You may know them as Jack's Mannequin.
Dark blue, dark blue. Have you ever been alone in a crowded room?
The third song that is on the record, is country. This time it is both a man and woman's voice. Ever hear of Lady Antebellum?
I run from hate, I run from prejudice, I run from pessimists. But I run too late. I run my life, or is it running me. I run from my past, I run too fast...or too slow it seems.
It's a short record (for a short life...so far). It only has one last song, as it winds to a somewhat quick end. The beat is unbelievable, the man's voice, enchanting.
Just a small town girl, livin' in a lonely world. She took the midnight train goin' anywhere. Some will win, some will lose. Some were born to sing the blues. Oh, the movie never ends, it goes on and on and on and on...
Don't stop believin'. Hold on to the feelin'. Streetlights people
I know it's short, but I don't really know if any of the songs actually tells my story. I think I might have just chose a few songs I REALLY love. They're all amazing, in my opinion. Here's the list of them in the order they were described, or listed rather.
1. The Show by Lenka
2. Dark Blue by Jack's Mannequin
3. I Run to You by Lady Antebellum
4. Don't Stop Believin' by Journey
They really are all worth listening, at least I think so...
