I Would Do Anything for Love…

Posted: September 7, 2011 in Music

This is a beautiful song.

No two ways about it.

I loved it the first time I heard it and continue to love it today.



It’s like you can taste his longing and his love for the woman.


And I would do anything for love

I’d run right in to hell and back

I would do anything for love

I’ll never lie to you and that’s a fact

But I’ll never forget the way you feel right now oh no – no way

And I would do anything for love

But I won’t do that, I won’t do that.

Some days it don’t come easy,

Some days it don’t come hard,

Some days it don’t come at all

And these are the days that never end

Some nights you breathe fire,

Some nights your carved in ice

Some nights your like nothing I’ve ever seen or will again

Maybe I’m crazy

But it’s crazy and it’s true

I know you can save me

No one else can save me now but you.

Oh no – no way

Is that love?

Or is it lust?

Rock ‘n roll, sex and drugs, music and musings – they can all get rolled in one with a song that ‘means’ something. That makes you feel something in on the inside.

I know I’ve mentioned this before – but music speaks to people.

And I find it cruel that only some of us have the ability to make others go ‘Yeah, fucking exactly!’ when we hear a song.

Music is something that has been part of mankind for millenia.

And it will continue to be until the very end…

Gotta love this song.

Next up – We’re Not Gonna Take it – by Twisted Sister.

So stay tuned to

‘A Nightingale’s Blog’, darlings

for more rock ‘n roll.

Peace. Out.



Have You Ever…

Posted: September 2, 2011 in Music, Musings

…woken up in the middle of the night with an urge?

An urge to listen to Alice Cooper’s song ‘Poison’?

I have. And I did.

I got up, searched the apartment for Logan’s Alice Cooper CD and put it on.

Such bliss…

You gotta love  the lyrics of this song.

Your cruel device

Your blood, like ice,

One look, could kill

My pain, your thrill

I wanna love you but I better not touch

Don’t touch

I wanna hold you but my senses tell me to stop

I wanna kiss you but I want it too much

I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison

You’re poison runnin’ through my veins

You’re poison, I don’t wanna break these chains

Your mouth, so hot

Your web, I’m caught

Your skin, so wet

Black lace, on sweat

I hear you callin’

and it’s needles and pins

I wanna hurt you just to hear you screamin’ my name

Don’t wanna touch you but you’re under my skin

I wanna kiss you but your lips are venomous poison

What makes someone write something like that?

Is it – profound?! I think it’s sheer fucking genius!!

Seriously – is it lust?

Is it envy?

Is it hatred?

Or, is it a warning bell that goes off in your head when you fall for someone?











Why is it that sometimes a song is released that ‘speaks’ to you?

You know what I mean, right?

I’m talking about that song that makes you nod along and think, ‘I know exactly how that feels’, ‘I know exactly what he/she is talking about’.

This got me thinking…

I will be posting about songs for a while, mostly rock (I think for the moment at least).

Don’t get me wrong, I still love Lady Gaga but – I’m also tired of vagina music for the moment.

Next up –

Meat Loaf’s ‘I Would Do Anything for Love’

Imagine a soft, sultry voice saying this next part:

‘So, stay tuned to ‘A Nightingale’s Blog’ for more rock songs, baby.



Song of the Nightingale

Posted: October 16, 2010 in Music

I was recently introduced to the remarkable music of a man named Yanni by my sister-in-law, Holly.

Holly and my brother Ruben have five kids. A girl, a boy and then the triplets, three boys and Holly told me that she has played Yanni’s music to them for relaxation purposes.

She gave me his DVD (one of them) and I went to have a listen. It’s amazing!

I mean, really, really amazing.

Now, the link that is provided on this post is to his song called ‘Nightingale’.

Just have a listen to the man’s genius.

Oh, by the way, he COMPOSES this stuff himself!!

No bullshit!
