Mist extended

Yep, I keep going! This time it’s about the music. Mostly my best stories are based on a song, or they have a song that inspires me to write them. Examples of this can be seen here. Check in the category ‘Writing’ and you’ll find some stories based upon songs. (At least one)
But today, it was slightly different. I had my iPod on shuffle and suddenly this song passed by, and I thought ‘this song really fits Mist’s story…’ Then I felt like I should share it with you, because it might increase the feeling you should get when reading the story. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want you to be all sad when having read the story! But I want you to be carried away by it, totally and completely.

This song is the soundtrack of the movie ‘The Crow’, the song is by The Cure. Try to hear the lyrics to understand how this applies to Mist.

Music once more: lyrics

Noooo! Another post about music? Oh god, how much more can we take?

Oh yes, my dears, I won’t let you go… Another post about music and your conscience obliges you to read it!
But don’t worry too much, this time it’s about lyrics. Yes, lyrics. Not all the good music has lyrics. Most songs do have it though (otherwise we don’t call it songs actually), and mostly in English. Makes it easier to share them with you!

One of the best pieces of lyrics I know, it this:
We should have each other to tea, huh?
We should have each other with cream
(The Lovecats by The Cure)

If anyone ever says this to me, I’ll agree directly and go buy some cream. Then marry and have babies.

Sometimes I feel critical and then these will do:
Just victims of the in-house drive-by
They say jump, you say how high
(Bullet in the Head by Rage Against The Machine)

I can’t stand people who just accept everything. I like to scream when I’m not pleased or when I disagree.

With the sunlight died and night above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain inside
You run for cover in the temple of love
You run for another it’s all the same
For the wind will blow and throw your walls aside
(Temple of Love by Sisters of Mercy)

This song is entirely great. Stunning. Mindblowing. As soon as I read the lyrics along with hearing the song, I fell in love with it. It’s genius and just GREAT.

What are you favourite lyrics? Funniest lyrics? Relatable lyrics? Pray tell.



Music festivals here are quite present and popular, especially the one I will call, very subtly, ‘W’. Now, it was revealed that The Cure would come there, and that was the point where I felt a sudden great need to go to W. I mean, The Cure! Yesterday new names were publishes and on the same day Rise Against will come. That was the point where I started to panic slightly. Tickets aren’t unlimited… Big Names… People going there…. Help! So I thought: I’ll buy a ticket tonight, before it’s all sold out.
So I sat in front of the computer, pushing my brother away (okay, it went a little differently) and saying: “I really don’t know how to do this…”
And that is VERY TRUE. So, here’s the hint: don’t leave me alone when I do something similar. Don’t go away. I’m serious.
Various difficulties were passed and then the site wouldn’t accept the card number. Although I tried it in many, MANY different ways and yes, I knew that I had the use the number with the word ‘card’ in front of it.
Still, no one came to help me until I had been sighing enough to get everyone crazy. That was the point where my father, poor victim, got pissed enough to help me.
After various problems, we succeeded though.

How I hate buying things on the Internet.

At least I’m going to The Cure now. THE CURE. *bows humbly*

We should have each other to tea, huh?
We should have each other with cream

Last Day of Summer

Because it fits the time (though I’m late, I know) and it is The Cure. They always sound so heavenly sad, and no way that this will be the last time I talk about them. They started in 1976 and are still going. Quite impressive, ain’t it? Lead singer Robert Smith used to play guitar with Siouxsie and the Banshees for a while. Those must have been the days…
