i could sing that whole song

Reasons to give Monsta X a listen in 2017
  • They make a different variety of music genres. So even if you don’t like hiphop and rap, they have so many songs that have beautiful music, vocals, soft raps.
  • Their MVs are aesthetically pleasing. Even their selfcam special MVs where you can see them goofing around are perfectly shot.
  • They have KILLER vocals!! Even the rappers can sing (listen to Pure Girl). I’m honestly not being biased here, but each member has a unique voice and could carry a whole song on their own (even though some of them have not been given their chance yet).
  • Their choreography is smooth, powerful and will leave an impression on you after you watch it.
  • JOOHEON AND I.M CAN SPIT FIRE!! They’re lyrics are wonderful and their voices are polar opposites. Again..variety of talents.. 
  • I was shocked by their personalities after I got to know them. Because on stage they are oozing charisma but in reality they are a bunch of dorks who just want to laugh and have fun. So even if you don’t like their music, you’re going to like them as people because they are genuinely nice, sweet and care about their fans and their friends (who are also from other groups like Got7 and Seventeen…etc)
  • They were the only groups who stayed till the end of MAMA 2015 to watch Big Bang receive their award and Psy’s closing performance and they were thanked for that and even took an adorable selfie together! (respect all around *clap clap*)
  • They are multitalented. Kihyun is a photographer and a cook, Wonho knows martial arts, Shownu is a swimmer (Wonho and Shownu are bodybuilders as well), Hyungwoon is a model, Minhyuk is also a photographer, has a photographic memory, he can draw and is working to be an MC, Jooheon is a composer and I.M is a cultured smarty pants (seriously he is smart)
  • Again..vocals
  • Visuals!! Every single one of them is a visual I mean just look at them!!
  • Last but not least, give them a chance. Check out their Showtime episodes and listen to their songs and maybe you’ll like them. They are loveable and talented enough to have everyone’s support if just they were given the chance.

there’s something so comforting, freeing and hauntingly beautiful about the lyric “rain came pouring down when I was drowning that’s when I could finally breathe”, as it’s filled with this sense of newfound hope, and in capturing that feeling of being able to fill your lungs with fresh air, it reminds us that in light of devastatingly hurtful situations and exhausting circumstances, we can all heal in time

T-Minus 9 sleeps to BMAM-Mass my lieblings and in celebration of the upcoming festive season I give you:

Campwolfe Twelve Days of Christmas

Sung of course from Serena’s perspective with accompanying bonus lyric notes/commentary from Ms. Campbell herself.

On the first day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me, a lin-ger-ing look in the LIFT.

<she thinks she can woo me but bugger it if I’ll succumb>

On the second day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the LIFT.

<Nesting dolls?! As if I’d want any of that claptrap to remind me she took off to the Ukraine. The silly pillock labeled them “Fräulein” and “Army Medic”. She’s not putting them on my bloody side of the desk>

On the third day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me three vodka shots, two nesting dolls, and a lingering look in the lift

<Vodka.  Finally something I can work with. She left the bottle on her desk. I shared it with Morven and Raf.  HA!>

On the fourth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<After the vodka shots from yesterday I need all the coffee I can get.  She’s doing this on purpose. Currently taking the caffeine shots but ignoring puppy dog eyes telegraphing her need for a ‘chat’>

On the fifth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<She filled all of them with top shelf scotch. I informed her that I’ve switched to bourbon and her face went all mopey.  Glorious.>

On the sixth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift

<Ok I’ll grudgingly admit these are quite a lovely peace offering……IT WILL STILL BE A COLD DAY IN HELL BEFORE WE ARE IN THEATRE TOGETHER!>

On the seventh day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me, seven crates of shiraz, six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<Chateauneuf du pape?!?!? Seven crates? What did she do sell her left kidney? Perhaps there is something to this forgiveness thing after all.  It wouldn’t hurt to allow her just one teensy glass would it?

On the eighth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me, eight helpful F1’s, seven crates of shiraz, six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls, and a lingering look in the lift.

<I’ve never been able to find even one F1 who could do a spinal puncture on the first go and she’s found eight who haven’t made my life hell.  She also followed up on all their paperwork. And ran interference with Ric Griffin for me. Fast losing my grip on fury. Damn sneaky tactic Major. Well played.>

On the ninth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me nine ‘please forgive me’s’, eight helpful F1’s, seven crates of shiraz, six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<She used complete sentences.  That voice! And her lower lip even quivered a bit.  Came dangerously close to accepting her apologies. Settled for wiping away her tears. I may be losing this campaign.>

On the tenth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me ten evenings she’s minding Jason, nine ‘please forgive me’s’, eight helpful F1’s, seven crates of shiraz, six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<She’s offered to watch Mary Beard with him for the next 10 weeks so I can get paperwork done for the trauma unit. Or garden.  Whichever I prefer.  Apparently. Not quite ready to tell her but; I’m screwed.>

On the eleventh day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me, eleven medicinal breakfast pastries, ten evenings she’s minding Jason, nine ‘please forgive me’s’, eight helpful F1’s seven crates of shiraz, six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<Jason had her come to fish n chips take away. Sneaky sod. Since when does he bugger off to bed a half eight? It was a conspiracy. A bottle or two of Chateauneuf du pape later and suddenly there she was splayed out on the Egyptian cotton.  What was I supposed to do, allow her to drive home?  That would have been frightfully irresponsible. There aren’t enough pastries in Pulses to get me through the sleep deprivation…..>

On the twelfth day of Christmas that Blonde Job gave to me twelve office kisses, eleven medicinal breakfast pastries, ten evening’s she’s minding Jason, nine ‘please forgive me’s’, eight helpful F1’s, seven crates of shiraz, six leopard print caps, five whiskey flasks, four coffees strong ’n’ hot, three vodka shots, two nesting dolls and a lingering look in the lift.

<Yes all right, fine, I’ve given in.  I took the strategic hills but she won the war.  I suppose it was a losing battle right from the start going up against the army. In her defence she’s promised no more Club Screw Up and in my defence her lips are exceedingly convincing.  Turns out full sentences weren’t really needed after all…..>

If anyone is at all interested I could be arm twisted in to actually scratching these lyrics out into some sheet music and posting it. I draw the line at singing - but if someone else wanted to have a go……

My thoughts on Beauty and the Beast (2017)

• Luke Evans’ Gaston is my sexuality
• LOVE the new bimbettes and the middle bimbette with the strong eyebrow game is #me
• I’ve always felt that the beast needs a song, even if I’m iffy about the placement of it
• also why did “come what may” feel like a nod to moulin rouge (I hope it was)
• learning about belle’s mom was kind of anticlimactic but still I cried
• EVERY TIME THEY PLAYED THE “HOME” INSTRUMENTAL FROM THE STAGE VERSION I COULD HAVE CRIED AND I WISH THEY HAD HAD EMMA SING IT
• why did Dan Stevens look so hot in the beginning???? Also in that ponytail
• they did SUCH a great job addressing the major plot holes of the original (why the whole castle was cursed, why none of the village knew, the beast’s age, etc)
• I still feel that they shouldn’t have auto tuned Emma’s voice, though it wasn’t as bad as I had feared
• Lefou’s character development is giving me life (his line in “kill the beast” ???? 🔥🔥🔥)
• the parallel of “now i’m wiser but unsure” and “and now he’s dear and so unsure” had my heart grow three sizes
• I was so glad that Belle didn’t change her dress before going to save her dad bc I’ve always thought it was a waste of her time
• I loved the choreography for the ballroom scene!!! It was a perfect mix of the beast rediscovering dancing, the sweetness of how a little girl would dance (because honestly I’m sure Belle has only ever danced with her own father), and the iconic romantic moment that it should be for the story

  • teacher: could you please spell the word "spirit"?
  • me: *looks at friend*
  • friend: no
  • the whole school: no
  • me: S-P-I-R-I-T, SPIRIT, LET'S HEAR IT
  • me: BUT IF I SING ALONG A LITTLE FUCKING LOUDER TO A HAPPY SONG
  • friend: god damn it

I feel like everyone has that one album, the one album that they have fallen so deeply and madly in love with that they could sing the whole thing through without hesitation. The one album you’ve listened to at least a thousand times and sometimes when you lie in bed at night you play it through your head to help you fall asleep. They might not even be your favourite band anymore, but that album will always have a special place in your soul.

I’m taking a ride
With my best friend
I hope he never lets me down again
He knows where he’s taking me
Taking me where I want to be

We’re flying high
We’re watching the world pass us by
Never want to come down
Never want to put my feet back down
On the ground

Promises me I’m safe as houses
As long as I remember who’s wearing the trousers
..
Never let me down
See the stars, they’re shining bright
Everything’s alright tonight

psa: it’s john and paul.

story time!

so every year my high school used to do this thing called “A Grand Night for Singing” which was kind of like a talent show except it was entirely singing and also there were no prizes, it was just for the choir kids to have fun

and it was my senior year so I decided to do it with my friend

my Very Very Good Friend

so we had to pick a song that would encapsulate our friendship

our totally 100% platonic friendship

what duet could we sing that speaks to the unfathomable bond between such good friends?

something from Wicked? maybe “When You Believe” from The Prince of Egypt?

no.

this.

(I was Derek and she was Odette, which was especially funny because I was a first soprano and she was an alto and my Derek was the most exaggerated dudely voice you can imagine)

so we sang this song in front of a whole lot of people

to celebrate our Friendship With Absolutely No Pants Feelings Involved, No Sir

except that it turns out that we actually had massive crushes on each other the whole time that we just hadn’t acknowledged or told each other about (and now we’re dating like six years later)

you guys

we gal-palled ourselves

You were the last thing I expected, and it took the space of a second to fall.

Still, that distance between seeing you and falling in love with you, though a simple blip in time, carries its own meaning. A vast gulf between past and present, between going through the motions and blazing, screaming life.

It took me the whole night to realize it, but the truth is, I was in love with you the moment I spotted you on that park bench, singing the song that resonated in a heart that must not have been as broken as I thought, if I could notice you.

The Christmas lights formed a runway around us, a halo of lights that caught in your eyes, that made us glow even more than we already were.
I was foolish for not seeing it sooner.

And I guess this is the ultimate goodbye letter, tossed into the wind of cyberspace, a million clicked links away from where you’ll ever see it.

This is a message shouted into the wind, and maybe it will be carried to you one day, when winter comes again and the town turns to magic and you hear that whisper of remembrance threaten to cloud all of you with nostalgia.

Maybe you’ll feel this. Like a song you half-remember, or an old friend you don’t quite recognize.
Maybe your memory will allow you to see it in my eyes.
I loved you then.
I love you still.
And I guess time tore us apart, I guess Christmas can’t last forever or it’s not special, I guess we’ll both move on with our lives, and be happy, and never see each other again.

But just in case.
Just for old times’ sake.
I hope you see this.
I hope one day this trail of lights leads you back to me.

—  ‘”Trail of Lights”
The Echoes of Years Ago

Within every death upon the bed or before the light
Under a blade of war or scalpel
There is that but a silent screeching
Beckoning message into the future where they all fuse
In this blissful, deafening white noise beyond consciousness
The verbal sound of a hand hopeless reaching out
Bouncing off the quiet ones
When I came into the world without a tear or sound
The faces of the most anguished and pained
Burrowed deep into my subconscious
More distinguishable throughout time
The coming of age meant the louder the muscles in the mouths
Though I can’t hear them now
I’ve fully known for the longest I will one day join that choir
After studying their skill from afar
What have I been fighting for this whole time?
A question I know has and never will be answered by anyone
I have to for myself for the reasons I’ve gained
There’s my own desires
Goals to alter all
Yet there is this one girl
She sings a sad song to waves on a cliff
Knowing no one will ever hear them
I could not nor ever know why she does it
We don’t share the same notes
Even so, this girl needs atleast someone to hear her
In that, I don’t mind being lulled to sleep
before entering that static of a state

anonymous asked:

I need someone to explain to me how they could cast Audra McDonald in Beauty and the Beast and not have her play the part that sings the song™

They wanted a Namenot talent, as u can c by almost the whole cast of non-professional, bad singers. My personal theory is that after Sound of Music live the world realized u cant put Audra in a cast on ppl who cant sing cuz she’ll slay them.

I Imagined BH6 if it WAS a Musical...

I love the way BH6 turned out and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it (well, maybe one thing, but that would require a LOT of working around that issue)

And keep in mind, I’m NOT a musical person at ALL…

But this is making me laugh SO HARD because

I’m imagining in the beginning Tadashi singing to Hiro and they’re arguing about bot fighting in song like…

And I imagine that Hiro has SO MANY opportunities where he could break out into song, but he just doesn’t because he hates singing and he thinks he has the worst voice ever. 



But he finally does sing…

AND IT’S THE MOST HEARTBREAKING SONG YOU’LL EVER HEAR AND IT’S IN A QUIET VOICE AND HE SOUNDS LIKE HE COULD BREAK DOWN IN TEARS THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE THING BUT HE SOUNDS SO SURPRISINGLY GOOD

Oh and instead of ‘Immortals’ being sung by Fall Out Boy, Big Hero 6 (with the exception of Baymax who doesn’t know how to sing) are the ones singing it. 


Aaaaannd then there’s this….

That’s all I can think of right now, but I hope you liked this!

Earlier today, I was singing along to the El Dorado songs and I started thinking about if I’d ever make a musical of the film (I mean, realistically, I couldn’t for many reasons, but just for fun).

The main problems (apart from getting permission from Dreamworks and Elton John etc.) would be things like how the ball game scene would work out, and whether there’d be a puppet Altivo (like in War Horse), or no Altivo at all.

That aside, it’d be so friggin cool because instead of Elton John singing the songs, Tulio and Miguel would!

Like, the opening number would obviously have to be “El Dorado”, and tbh the whole cast could sing that. The chasing scene could be a chorus number, and idk what songs you could do after that (maybe a short one that Cortes sings idk).

Miguel could sing the first verse, chorus, and second verse of “The Trail We Blaze” (with women from the chorus as backing singers), then Tulio can join in once he gets into it (like in the movie). Maybe Chel can have a really short song when she bumps into them, like saying she wants to go or something. Ooh - or it could be a reprise of the first chasing song!

After the volcano part has happened and everyone thinks they’re gods, Tzekel-Kan can sing about the city whilst showing them around (and also hints about his religious plans), with Chief Tannbok cutting in at random points, trying to show them all the nice places.

Chel should then sing a song when she shows up at their temple, singing about how she wants to go out etc.

Obviously “It’s Tough To Be A God” would stay the same, and I haven’t really thought that much about the rest of the story. Although I think that “Without Question” should be sung by both Tulio and Miguel; they’d be positioned on the stage so that they clearly aren’t together - Miguel with all the people and Tulio with Chel (who could actually harmonize on the “I love you"s? But then it takes it away from it being the two guys’ song..)

I feel like it’d be weird if Tulio and Miguel sung “Friends Never Say Goodbye”, so it’d be pretty cool if Chief Tannabok sung it.

Also, I think we can all agree Tzekel-Kan must have an awesome dramatic villain song at one point (probably the bit where he’s making the potion to control the big cat thingy)

Obviously I haven’t completely thought about it, so if you have your own ideas for the scenes that I haven’t mentioned a song for, feel free to post it!
