i know you love this song

You know the reason The Beatles made it so big?…‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ First single. Fucking brilliant. Perhaps the most fucking brilliant song ever written. Because they nailed it. That’s what everyone wants. Not 24/7 hot wet sex. Not a marriage that lasts a hundred years. Not a Porsche…or a million-dollar crib. No. They wanna hold your hand. They have such a feeling that they can’t hide. Every single successful song of the past fifty years can be traced back to ‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand.’ And every single successful love story has those unbearable and unbearably exciting moments of hand-holding.

“So poetry’s your favorite then?”

Harry nods. “Absolutely. I love it. I love books in general, of course. There’s little I’ll refuse to spend time reading, but there’s just something about a good poem.”

“What about it?” Louis inquires. He’s never seen Harry act so excited about anything before. He’d really like to only ever talk about things Harry likes if it means getting to see him like this.

“I don’t know, really. I mean, I guess there’s something beautiful about the fact that it has such a specific meaning to the poet, but anyone can find a way to relate to it. Like a good song, you know? You can make it your own.” Harry doesn’t wait for Louis to agree before he continues, “But also, when you find a poet that you particularly love… it’s like they just get you in a way no one else does. Opening a book always feels like a safe place, but when it’s a book written by someone who just… gets it. It’s comforting.”

Louis nods. “I totally get that. They say the right book feels like coming home.”

1979: Smooth

By @rhapsody-in-flannel: 1979 “Will you two just admit that we should have gone with my plan?!” (btw this is a really clever concept!)

Word Count: 822

A/N:  For the longest time I absolutely loathed country music. But the last few weeks I’ve kinda started loving it. And, I mean, how can you hate a song that uses a frog as an instrument? That’s absolutely fantastic! When I got all of my brother’s songs, I inherited his big library of country music, and somehow this song found its way onto my iPod. I don’t know many Florida Georgia Line songs, but I think it’s time I check them out more :)

Song 1979: Smooth by Florida Georgia Line


“Will you two just admit that we should have gone with my plan?” Dean hissed at you and Sam as yet another person walked up to introduce themselves.

You just laughed, the sound of your good mood echoing off the old barn and leafy trees. Sam, as always, was infected by your happiness and found himself relaxing, despite Dean’s keyed-up attitude. “Dean, c’mon, it’s not that bad. Besides, why would you wanna go to an old bar when we got invited to a good ol’ fashioned southern barbeque?”

“Hey there,” the middle-aged woman drawled, coming to a stop in front of the three of you. “Y’all don’t look like yer from ‘round here.”

“They’re not,” you gestured at the boys, leaning into Sam’s side. “But this smells like my childhood. Feels like home.”

In the two years that Sam had known you, he’d never seen you as at peace as you were in the middle of this crowd of strangers. Your southern accent that was always playing on the edge of your voice had come out in full force during this hunt. You spoke slower, smiled more, and just seemed freer. The hot, muggy air wasn’t as stifling as it would have been without you by his side.

“Then let’s get y’all somethin’ ta eat! Can’t let these two handsome fellas leave without experiencin’ some o’ our southern hospitality.”

You pulled away from Sam and looped your arm around the woman’s, leading the way further into the melee. You fit right in here. As Sam pulled Dean along to follow you, he heard you confide to the woman like you two were best friends. “Dean over there thinks he prefers bars to parties. It’s up to us to convert him of his heathen ways.”

“And that tall drink of water next ta him?”

“Oh, don’t worry about him. I’ve got that one eatin’ outta my hand.” The wink you flashed over your shoulder at Sam made him grin and forget about the hot sweat that suctioned his clothing to his body.

The closer the group of you got to the crowd, the deeper Dean grimaced. Country music flowed out from speakers set up throughout the yard, people of all ages milled around, and there was a loud buzzing that came from everyone holding loud conversations. Sam just rolled his eyes at his brother’s behavior. Dean could put up with one night of innocent company and music that wasn’t classic rock.

Once Dean had a plate of food, though, he was in a slightly better mood. You had taken residence under Sam’s arm while the two of you joked and conversed with the people around you, making up for Dean’s silence.

A few hours into the night, people started moving off to the sides, making room in the middle of the yard for a dance floor. Your eyes lit up, but before Sam could decide if he wanted to embarrass himself on the dance floor for you, another man came up and asked you to dance. Without a second thought, you stood up and took his hand.

“Y/N—“ Sam started to protest, but you just leaned down and kissed him quickly, pulling back with a huge grin.

“Honey, don’t you worry.”

And in the next flash, you were out in the middle of the dance floor, easily following the stranger’s lead. Sam was torn between his jealousy at seeing that other man’s hands on you, and the pure happiness that he felt upon seeing how free and happy you were in this setting.

More people skipped onto the dance floor and partners were switched around. No one stayed with the same person for long. Just watching you smile and laugh as if you’d been friends with everyone at this party for years sent a spark of tenderness through Sam’s heart.

Then someone grabbed Sam’s hand and he let himself be pulled onto the dance floor. You spotted him and lit up even more, if that was possible. Making your way over, Sam marveled at how well you fit in here. The way you moved your body and how you locked your eyes on his just made him fall even more in love with you than he thought possible.

You finally made your way over and hooked your arms behind his neck. Sam couldn’t stop himself from wrapping his arms tightly around your waist and leaning down until his lips were at your ear. In his best southern accent, he said, “Good Lord almighty, darlin’. You sure know how ta make a man fall in love, and ya ain’t even tryin’.”

Your perfect laughter rang across the crowd at his attempted fake-accent and you leaned up to kiss him. “Oh, sweetie, it’s effortless ‘cause I wrote th’ book.”

“Think you could read me some of those chapters tonight?”

With shining eyes, you grinned up at him. “I reckon we can figure somethin’ out.”

TWICE REACTION TO YOU BEING A GIRL CRUSH AND DANCING TO A BOY GROUP SONG ON A SHOW

Nayeon:

She would watch you the whole time with a smile on her face and once you were done she would be the first clapping with a big smile. You truly were her girl crush.

“Woah, you are amazing.”

Jeongyeon:

She would watch you dance with heart eyes, she would fall in love with you right away. When you were done she would tell you how amazing you were. But backstage she would be a little flirt.

“You know, I’m a girl crush too, we should be a together.”

Momo:

During the show she would clap for you and tell you that you were great, inside her head, she was thinking about one thing and that was a way to get around you more.

“You know, I think we should dance together one, here’s my number.”

Sana:

Sana would watch you licking her lips looking at you up and down. When you were done she would give you a big smile and for the rest of the show her eyes were on you the most. Afterwards, she would find a way to get your number.

Jihyo:

Everyone would tease her for weeks about how on the show she was so surprised at your dancing and how much she found you attracted. She would end up seeing you again a few days later and would blush every time you smiled at her.

Mina:

She would be so shy at telling you how amazing you were at dancing so she would wait to after the show to tell you. But for weeks you were all she could think and talk about. So, the girls would push things far by giving you her number and telling you about her crush on you.

“Who told you I like you?”

Dahyun:

She would always blush around you after seeing you dance, she found you very attracted and would be forever shy around you until one day she just asked you for date.

Chaeyoung:

After you were done dancing and sat next to her she would get shy and would give you her cute little smile. After the show she would look at you but if she saw you catch her staring she would look down at floor and blush but later would end up talking to you.

“Oh ,Y/N I was wondering if you would like to hang out sometime.”

Tzuyu:

She wouldn’t be able to keep her eyes off you and would watch you for the rest of the show. She would be nervous after the show to talk to you but still would. Inside she knew she had a little crush on you but wouldn’t tell anyone.

“Hey, you should teach me how to dance like you, you are amazing.”

What???? Did you know Joy Williams is the one who sings the Don't Let Me Down acoustic cover for the state farms commercials? I love that version I had no idea she was the one "@billboard How covering a Chainsmokers song in a State Farm commercial helped @JoyWilliams evolve How covering a Chainsmokers song in a State Farm commercial helped @JoyWilliams evolve blbrd(.)cm/v5xrhW

Her cover is so beautiful - i like it better than the original (sorry chainsmokers). Here’s a snippet of the article and the song / commercial. 

http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop/7743507/joy-williams-interview-chainsmokers-state-farm-cover

The voice soundtracking “The Following" — which features an ordinary man being haunted by the less fortunate, and encourages community outreach through State Farm’s “Neighborhood of Good” campaign — belongs to Joy Williams, formerly of the Americana duo The Civil Wars. As half of The Civil Wars, Williams has won four Grammys and dueted with Taylor Swift, but tells Billboard that covering “Don’t Let Me Down” for State Farm was one of the more exciting moments of her career.

“I got contacted by the team within State Farm, and they told me about the concept for what they wanted to create,” she recalls. "As soon as they started talking to me about it, I was in. I loved the heart and the depth and the call to action. The song ‘Don’t Let Me Down’ came up, and I’ve danced in my kitchen with my son to that song a thousand times. I was thinking about doing it in a way that really fit ‘The Following,’ and the lyrics took on a new life.”

Williams is an unabashed fan of the Chainsmokers, and says that “Don’t Let Me Down,” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 last year, is a personal favorite. “They’ve had a huge year,” she says, "and in particular, I really love how well-written that song is! I love how the arc of that song came together, and I’m a huge fan of [co-writer] Emily Warren. Emily plus the Chainsmokers made a song with a heartbeat.”

When The Civil Wars, which Williams formed with John Paul White in 2008 and achieved national acclaim over the course of two albums, split in 2014, the singer-songwriter pivoted to a fuller, slightly electronic sound on her 2015 solo debut Venus. Her cover of “Don’t Let Me Down” is a marriage of her past and present — a vulnerable interpretation of a massive bass drop — and her first exploration of a single (aside from the Civil Wars’ 2012 Swift collaboration “Safe and Sound,” from The Hunger Games soundtrack) breaking into the mainstream.

Also for ship: Belle/Adam and Plumette/Lumiere

Belle/Adam

Who said “I love you” first:

Belle. He’d rather belt out a dramatic song about his feels.


Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background:

He does. Proudly shows off the love of his life.


Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror:

I don’t really see either of them doing this. I think they do what we talked about which is leave little book quotes or love quotes in books.


Who buys the other cheesy gifts:

Adam. She knows he means well but she’d rather prefer a book so of course he hunts down first edition books cause only the best for Belle. XD The guy is dramatic and extra.


Who initiated the first kiss:

It looked mutual. XD


Who kisses the other awake in the morning:

He does. He just loves and adores her and can’t believe she’s real.


Who starts tickle fights:

He does.


Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower:

I want to say he does but I think she may do it just to see him blush and stutter.


Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch: Adam.  If she’s reading or tutoring then he brings her food and if he can’t then Mrs. Potts delivers them and hands her a note from him that makes her smile.


Who was nervous and shy on the first date:

Adam.

And then he sings about his feels later. I like sh*tposting him, okay. XD


Who kills/takes out the spiders:

You know he screams for one of the servants to do it and Belle just rolls her eyes and takes the poor spider out. He follows her to make sure the spider doesn’t hurt her. She says it not poisonous but he stays tense until it’s gone.


Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk:

It’s Adam. The wine lessens his inhibitions. It’s freaking adorable too!.

Plumette/Lumiere

Who said “I love you” first:

He does and probably sings about his love for her.


Who would have the other’s picture as their phone background:

Both.


Who leaves notes written in fog on the bathroom mirror:

Lumiere.


Who buys the other cheesy gifts:

Lumiere. He’s very romantic and over the top. He’s the type that has their loves name done in fireworks.


Who initiated the first kiss: She took him by surprise and kissed him.


Who kisses the other awake in the morning:

He’s just a “I’m going to kiss you everywhere. I can’t get enough of you.” type. Mornings are her favorite time of day because of this.


Who starts tickle fights:

He does and there’s a 50% chance he gets smacked in the head for it. That is a really big castle and it doesn’t clean itself and yet they are constantly making out when they think no one is watching. He doesn’t exactly make her job easy but she doesn’t care.


Who asks who if they can join the other in the shower:

It’s just a given that they shower together. Shower time is their time. They take long showers. ;)


Who surprises the other in the middle of the day at work with lunch:

Lumiere


Who was nervous and shy on the first date:

Plumette. I have this headcanon (fic idea) that Lumiere was a well known player and he started pursuing her the minute she arrived. She was hired by Adam’s father and was afraid of the king so she was a bit shy and cautious at first with Lumiere, but once she realized he was truly smitten then she opened up a lot more and was just as enamored with him as he was with her.


Who kills/takes out the spiders

: I pity the spider that crosses paths with this maid.


Who loudly proclaims their love when they’re drunk:

You’d think it would be him but he will proclaim his love for her stone cold sober. She’s a hilarious drunk and will proclaim her love for her spark. She calls him ‘Sparky’ when drunk. 

THIS WAS FUN! THANK YOU!

anonymous asked:

I agree with the anon but have different reasons...Divide is personally my least favorite of Ed's three albums because the music feels the least like him. Some of the lyrics aren't as original as his old ones and some melodies sound the same throughout. New Man sounds the most like his old stuff lyrically to me and that's not even that strong of a song. Some stuff sounds like he was trying to top Thinking Out Loud with all the love ballads (which they're all good but that's the feeling I get).

I mean… you get that feeling because he literally said he was trying to write a better song than Thinking Out Loud. But you wouldn’t have thought it if he hadn’t said it, right? Out of sixteen tracks on Divide, there are only three love ballads: Perfect, How Would You Feel (Paean), and Hearts Don’t Break Around Here. You know how many there were on Multiply? Three: Photograph, Tenerife Sea, and Thinking Out Loud. Guess how many were on Plus. There were three: Wake Me Up, Lego House, and Kiss Me. Three love songs on each album is something of a pattern with this guy, isn’t it? It’s not as if Ed saw that Thinking Out Loud did well last time and decided he was going to put out an entire album of Thinking Out Louds this time, you know? He decided to put out an entire album of good songs, and three of them happen to be love ballads just like on his other albums, and of those three, he said one of them is better than Thinking Out Loud. So the only reason you said it “sounds like he was trying to top Thinking Out Loud with all the love ballads” is you heard what he said about that one song and you’re pretending you thought it all along even though in reality there is no other reason to think it. 

But what really continues to boggle my mind is why anyone would consider it a drawback for Ed to try to write a better song than what we’ve heard before. As a fan, wouldn’t you want Ed’s music to improve over time? Wouldn’t you at least want him to try to make it better? I just think grumbling that these songs sound like Ed was trying to become better at what we love about him is such a bizarre way to react the album. Even if you had genuinely “gotten a feeling” that that’s what was happening, why on earth would that be a bad thing?

I’d also be interested in which lyrics you think “aren’t as original as his old ones,” because that’s the kind of statement that doesn’t mean anything without examples. I’m not saying every line on Divide is a masterpiece by any means, but I think there’s something of a misconception among some fans (particularly the younger ones) that Ed’s lyrics are generally more complicated or wordy than other artists’ lyrics, when really it’s his ability to use very simple words and phrases to paint pictures and demonstrate complex ideas which is what makes his writing so relatable across demographics. For some reason, there’s this expectation for him to use 10-point words in every new song, and when he doesn’t, people call it unoriginal. But when has Ed ever given us a vocabulary lesson? 

Give Me Love is my favorite song of all time, and there’s not a single phrase in it which isn’t perfectly straightforward. Small Bump with all its incredible imagery also relies on simple words arranged in a creative way to make you feel something. So at what point on Divide has Ed’s writing departed from this pattern? I think there is one song on the entire album with lyrics that could do with significant revision, but other than that one, where are you finding a lack of creativity (as compared to his older work)? Just look at a song like Hearts Don’t Break Around Here, which is rapidly becoming my second favorite song of all time. The lyrics are beautifully uncomplicated but also entirely unique and original. I can’t think of any other song with such simple phraseology, heartwarming sentiment, and beautiful music all working together without ever slipping into the realm of cliche. A song like Happier is genuinely moving based solely on the uses of the actual word happier in the song, which I think is just so smart, and somehow Supermarket Flowers, which is composed primarily of plain statements and descriptions of mundane tasks, has literally made millions of people cry. Multiple times. Just with words. Lots of people have experienced the same things that these songs are about, so if the lyrics to any of them had been unoriginal, they wouldn’t be so moving because we’d be used to the same old words and what they mean. It’s the creativity - the originality in the composition, the new and different perspective on familiar scenarios, the seeing-through-Ed’s-eyes - that makes these songs so good. 

Hmm. 

You said the music on Divide feels the least like Ed. I’m… not sure what that means exactly… After all, you wouldn’t want him to just re-release Plus and Multiply with new lyrics, right? You want new music. But I wonder if the fact that the songs didn’t sound familiar to you right away affected the way you were thinking about them when you sent me this ask. Maybe these songs didn’t sound like Ed to you because they’re new and you’re not used to them, and so you’re comparing them to the older songs you love and they’re coming up short because you haven’t had time to fall in love with them yet. It’s very common for new things to make people feel uncomfortable and look for reasons to reject them simply because they’re unfamiliar. And it may be that after a while they will grow on you because they are Ed, just a bit of Ed you weren’t used to yet. I hope that happens! And then, when the next album comes out and you aren’t comfortable with those songs right away, we can have this discussion all over again. :)

What would be on a playlist for Desdemona Rank? :D

Bring on the Men- Jekyll and Hyde OBC

(I like to think that, in every situation, Desdemona asks herself “What would Oscar Wilde do?”  In Fallen London, the answer is “Have sex with every single attractive man who crosses my path.”)

Ganef- Vagabond Orchestra

(But her true love will always be the Jewel Thief.  Also, I have a burlesque act set to this song, so, you know, associations.)

Tango Till They’re Sore- Madeline Peyroux

(More ‘femme fatale with a heart of gold’ music.  I better start varying this playlist!)

She Walks in Beauty- Sissel

(Did she write this, or did the Starving Poet write it about her?  Neither- Lord Byron wrote it- but they could have!)

Why Don’t You Do Right- Carolina Chocolate Drops

(Probably sung to herself, tbh)

Midnight Garden- Bond

(#aesthetic)

The Garden of Love- William Blake, set to music by Rodney Money

(Poetry above all, my dears, even decency.  Always save the banned books from the Church, no matter the cost.)

Things I’m Gonna Do- Rasputina

(”I have half a mind, it’s cracked and breaking/Recommended, it’s great for tasting/Spit in the face of the tried and true/These are things that I’m gonna do”)
