Any one of us could hold the audience. Ringo would do ‘Boys’, which was a fan favourite with the crowd. And it was great — though if you think about it, here’s us doing a song and it was really a girls’ song. 'I talk about boys now!’ Or it was a gay song. But we never even listened. It’s just a great song. I think that’s one of the things about youth — you just don’t give a shit. I love the innocence of those days. It was a little embarrassing because it went, 'I’m talking about boys - yeah, yeah - boys’. It was a Shirelles hit and they were girls singing it, but we never thought we should call it Girls, just because Ringo was a boy.

Masterpost of Musicals by Category/Style

You requested it, here it is! Some shows fall into multiple categories based on their style, and many things in the contemporary and pop/rock sections could easily be moved around between sections.  In addition, many modern musicals have aspects of both legit singing and belting, in which case I’ve tried to categorize them based on their overall feel. If you see that I’ve missed a show and want it included, shoot me a message and I’ll get it added!

Note: If you think something is miscategorized, just send me a message!  No big deal!  I certainly haven’t seen all of these shows, so I had to make assumptions based off of what I knew.  I don’t mind corrections at all, and will thank you for respectfully pointing out my mistake!  That being said, I kindly ask that you don’t passive aggressively tag this complaining about how a show is is in the wrong section.  I am so happy to change any mistakes, but being rude about it really serves no purpose.  :)

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow - Natasha Romanoff

(a/n): Hi, this is me Matt testing how it would be writting in my phone, you can ignore this :3… You should this sucks

Song: The Shirelles - Will you still love me tomorrow

Warning: little mention of sex

[Tonight you’re mine, completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow?]

This wasn’t supposed to end like this, you weren’t supposed to end like this, naked, legs tangles with hers, your hair a mess and your body shinning for the little layer of sweat. How could you? How could you let yourself get trapped into her web? tangled on her fingers. You don’t know if this is a blessing or just the beginning of a curse, she can be any of those. Her touches burns like the heat of a thousand fires, her kisses tastes like heaven and you’re pretty sure that her body was sculpture by the hands of angels… Maybe demons, who knows? She was more like a ghost than a person.
This night will be in your memory for ever, but for her it may be just another number in her list, maybe she won’t even remember that it happen.

[Is this a lasting treasure
Or just a moment’s pleasure
Can I believe the magic in your sighs
Will you still love me tomorrow?]

Maybe she didn’t even though about this twice, she can get anything she wants, maybe in that second, she wanted you, maybe this night is just an impulse, nothing else. You couldn’t blame her though, sometimes someone just needs a body to keep them warm, just a few kisses to bring back a little bit of love on their hearts, or passionate touches to remind them that their alive.
But why just one night? Why not forever? Is she afraid? Does love scares her so much? Why want she just embrace you? Why can’t she just let herself succumb into your arms? You can keep her safe, you can take care of her too, she does not need to live alone, you are here for her…you’ve always been.

“you’re still awake” Her silky voice caught your attention. You looked at her direction, her back was facing you, her milky bright skin was colored with your marks, purple and red one.

“is that a problem?” She turns around, her forest green eyes were now a lighter color, more like a emerald. Her eyes were wandering in every inch of skin that was uncovered.

[I’d like to know that your love
Is a love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow ]

“there’s no need to be aggressive” her red lips turned into an almost invisible smile. The truth is, she knew what you were thinking, is this for real? does this means something for her? Yes, but she won’t admit it, she will never admit it, no matter how many times she walks you to her bed, or how many times she moans your name, she won’t admit that her heart belongs to you.

“I’m not being aggressive” Her hands found their way to your face, softly caressing your cheek, you could swear that her eyes were shinning, but you could never be sure with her.

“yes you are sweetheart” she got closer to you, connecting her lips with yours, slowly but surely devouring the last part of sanity that you had left, this woman is driving you crazy.

“It’s just…I can’t sleep, that’s all” It not a lie, you couldn’t sleep after all, to much to think of. Natasha moves her hand into your locks of hair, gently caressing it. Her lips were now in your cheek, leaving little pecks for time to time.

“I can help you with that, you should’ve told me before…come here” She shouldn’t suppose to do this, but Nat couldn’t stand the chance of having you in her arms, moments like this could be counted by the fingers of one hand, they were scarce, rare… Miracles.
Little by little you let yourself get lost into her, drifting away from everything but her, all worries, all problems, gone. Just one question stucked in your head.

[Will you still love me tomorrow?]

anonymous asked:

I dreamed about Matt Murdock singing "Pacify her" by Melanie Martinez, thinking about Foggy and Marci. Mostly the lines: "Someone told me stay away from things that aren’t yoursBut was he yours, if he wanted me so bad?" and "Pacify her/ She’s getting on my nerves/ You don’t love her/ Stop lying with those words"

I hope you’ll forgive me for going with the spirit of the prompt and not the lyric itself, but here’s some Matt stealing Foggy with love songs. 

Sister Louise had been the one who taught him to play the guitar, a worn-out sounding instrument she had named Janis. “What do you get when you fall in love, a guy with a pin to burst your bubble,” she’d sung, strumming happily in the St. Agnes’ common room with Matt’s hand resting over hers, learning the shape of her knuckles as they made notes on the strings.

When Matt had commented, a little hesitantly, that he hadn’t thought nuns were allowed to like music, she laughed. “I was at Woodstock, dear heart, they couldn’t stop me if they wanted to. Here, feel where I put bumps on the top of the neck? That’s how you can tell where you should put your hand. Now, show me F#, do you remember that one?”

Sometimes, Matt listened to the cassette tapes playing in Sister Louise’s room while he lay in his bed, two floors away. Under the blankets, his hands made the shapes she was teaching him. Sister Louise listened to the Shirelles and the Carpenters and Joni Mitchell. Sometimes, with the volume so low Matt almost had to strain to hear, she played The Grateful Dead. But mostly, she hummed along to ladies with pretty voices singing about being in love.
