songs about your ex

From the Dining Table

This was heavily inspired by this song. don’t listen to it unless you want to think about your ex and possibly cry. I definitely didn’t cry lol.

I don’t know why I can only write post-break up!Finn but it is what it is. but it’s still very different from anything I’ve ever wrote. let me know what you think.

Finn Balor x OC

Maybe one day you’ll call and tell me you’re sorry, too.

Shakira: Interview from Camp Nou

I: What do you considering when making a song?

S: I have to feel it, connect with it…My songs are my vehicle to express myself, they’re like therapy to me. I’ve realized that writing is how I really start to heal when i’m feeling down.

I: You have all these songs that are hits now and collaborations with many artists that are dying to work with you… do you ever look back and think about your 13 year old self in Barranquilla with a guitar in hand looking for an opportunity?

S: I do! I started very young, I was actually 10 when I started performing and knew right away that I wanted to be a singer. And that facilitated certain things for me because it gave me a goal in life to reach, but at the same time, it also made things a bit more difficult in my childhood because surely I missed out on certain things because I was very serious about my career from very early on.

I: You have a very successful career with a family to take care of… how do you manage to do it all?

S: Well by 12 I’m like a used napkin, useless and worn out! But the good thing about being a mother is that it helps organize many aspects of your life. My kids keep me going and are the ones that structure my days. I’m not the same person I was when I was around 26 where I lived for myself only and was the center of my own universe. Now my kids are my absolute priority and I run based on their needs and wants. When I’m in the studio I have to prioritize my time and only have about 4 hours a day to be inside the studio before I have to cater to my kids. But I think it’s a gift that us women have, being able to do many things at once. Men could never, they could only do 1 thing at a time (laughs).

A/N: It’s so short that I’m thinking to maybe try to post something more today, but I won’t guarantee it. Hope you’ll like this one, I thought it’s really sweet. Enjoy!

In Greek mythology Euterpe was one of the Muses, the daughters of Mnemosyne, fathered by Zeus. Called the “Giver of delight”, when later poets assigned roles to each of the Muses, she was the muse of music. [-]

Conor was sit in front of the piano, his hands dancing on the keys. You smiled with the view, leaned in the door frame and watching your boyfriend.

It was Monday morning and although it was spring already, the sky was grey, the perfect lazy day. You got up, Conor wasn’t in bed anymore. You listened to the melody and knew he was playing piano downstairs, so you decided to go and make some tea before meet him.

“Good morning.” You said, sitting next to Conor.

“Hey babe.” he smiled to you, passing an arm around your waist and leaning his head in the curve of your neck.

Your hands touched the keys, you started playing.

“Four in the morning, staring at the ceiling, on my own like I was last weekend, you left and I guess you had your reasons, guess you had your reasons. yeah.”

Conor was going to leave again to Los Angeles the next day, he was staying there for a few months and, even if he would constantly visit you and his family, you two missed each other so much.

“I said things and I didn’t really mean them, kept going till I saw your heart bleeding, ruining the only thing I ever believed in, ever believed in, yeah”

Conor decided to join you and sang the next part. “And even though you’re gone, I’m gonna pretend there’s nothing wrong, I’m fucking every girl that comes along, anything is better than to face up to reality, oh”

You smiled to him and sang the chorus together “This is my version of heartbreak, this is how I get over you. I don’t wanna feel, I don’t wanna feel.” you never sang the “feel” part because you would ruin the song and Conor giggled a little when you didn’t say anything in this bit. You two continued.  “This is my version of heartbreak and it’s all I know how to do, I don’t wanna feel like there’s anymore. This is my version of a heartbreak.”

And you waited in silence to the next verse, but it never came because Conor decided he couldn’t wait to the song to end, starting a conversation as you had both of your hands playing his song.

“I don’t get it.” Conor said while he stopped playing.

“What, honey?” you asked, still pressing the keys, not giving up of finishing the music.

“Why you like this song so much.”

You gave him a sweet smile. “It’s a good song.”

“I know it is, I wrote it. You know, I only write smashing songs.” He joked and you laughed. “But seriously, it’s about my ex and it’s your favorite song from my stuff.”

You looked the emptiness in front of you, thinking in his question, “There’s a sadness in it I can relate to. You aren’t only singing, you’re putting your feels out there.” your hands were playing still, but it was in the automatic mode. “It’s so… pure. You don’t need a bursting beat or more than two instruments, it’s all about your voice, it’s all about the lyrics.” You sighed. “You don’t seem to give a fuck if you aren’t saying the right things, you’re just… feeling.” You looked at Conor again with a playful smile and winked at him. “Also, it’s one of the easiest songs to play and I don’t feel a complete failure when I try to play it.”

Conor was completely lost in what you were saying. Your E/C eyes staring nothing in particular, but still so bright; your messy hair falling over your shoulders and being a natural curtain; your skin looking so soft in the pale light of the day; your voice being so deep as if it was connected to your heart and not to your lungs; and your sweet smile, the soft sweet smile, that didn’t need any effort to show up and make his day better. And when you looked at him and winked, he thought you were the most charming person he would ever met.

“You’re bloody gorgeous, you know?” He asked.

You giggled. “Only because I am talking about your song, huh? That’s a way of getting things from you, Maynard.”

“I’m serious, Y/N.” he hugged you and you decided to give up, you weren’t finishing to sing the stupid music.

“I know you’re, honey.” You hugged him back. “Thank you.” You told before giving him a smack. “Also, sorry to wreck your beautiful song with my horrible voice.”

Conor loved you, but it was inevitable to say you weren’t meant to be a singer. “Any time, babe.” You smiled and he kissed your head.

He let you go and started playing the piano.

“What is it? I never heard this melody before.” You asked, you loved when he was working in knew stuff. “Is it a spoiler to the next album? Is it what you were working on in Los Angeles before come home? Oh my God, can I record it and sell to whom pays better in media?”

Conor laughed with your last question and then smiled, looking to you. “I don’t know if it’s going to be in my next album, I wasn’t working on it until now.” He told, his look turned to the piano. “And you can record it and sell it, if you want to,” He stared you again “but it would be a waist. Don’t you want to keep a secret and enjoy the moment a little before getting everyone to know this is your song?”

Let's be clear: Harry is not a feminist. If you're against racism, it won't occur to you to write a song using racist stereotypes and cliches in your music. If you're against islamophobia, it won't occur to you to write a song using islamophobic stereotypes and cliches in your music. You won't make islamophobic jokes about your Muslim ex. Harry listened to songs like Kiwi and Only Angel on repeat. He said he chose songs carefully. He made the joke about Kendall. About Sarah. He's not a feminist.


anonymous asked:

Obviously Harry was joking when he said that From the Dining Table was about discussion during a meal. Just like how he was joking when he told the Sunday Times the playing with myself line was actually him playing with his thoughts. Sarcasm, people, sarcasm.

Ohhh did he actually give this wry answers about things and Larries are taking it literally?

They think he’s literally saying the song is about a dining room conversation? Wanking about your ex alone in a hotel room is a dining room convo Larries are having? The song is ONE specific narrative of him getting over an ex girlfriend and dating other people who look like her and getting jealous about her with guys (a consistent theme throughout his album it seems) and that’s literally the entire song. This isn’t some Billy Joel Piano Man song about people at a bar, it’s one single narrative going here.

I can’t believe they’re really all telling themselves it’s a song about people having conversations over dinner just ‘cause they can’t understand a joke and are desperate to make the evil “het” songs about women about anything else.

@floralharries replied to your post: @floralharries replied to your post: …

Yeah, I was already upset with Harry for how he handled the release of the song without telling her, and now all this. I hope she’s okay. The dad said ‘The family is flattered’ not ‘She’s flattered’ so it makes me wonder. I’m surprised that no one told Harry he needed to tell her, tbh???? Where you at, Jeff??? But maybe they did and Harry wanted her to find out that way. But my god!

Same. I was already pissed at Harry because the way he handled it was SHITTY. you have the option not to tell your famous exes that they’ve got songs about them… you could put their names in a song and it’d be okay. you can refer to Style, the ICONIC Taylor Swift song that everyone knows and tell the world “THIS SONG IS ABOUT TAYLOR SWIFT” until the end of fucking time because everyone already knows who she is, cares way too much about her personal life, and knows you dated

but you cannot treat a non-famous girl you hooked up with once like that. her life isn’t for public consumption and she has never consented for it to be. you cannot do that to people.

and yeah like where was jeff or anyone else in his team saying “hey, you need to tell her” like WHAT THE FUCK

i can make allowances for harry KIND OF because he’s never very publicly referred to a non-famous girl in his songs like that and the only times he’s made a song BLATANTLY lyrically obvious who it’s about is when referencing Taylor… who has different rules. He should still be able to TELL there are different rules but whatever…


and literally this whole thing of  “the whole family’s flattered” i honestly thing was what she told him he was allowed to say. because like she doesn’t want a controversy…. BECAUSE WHY WOULD SHE

it’s just so fucked up…. i cannot believe he put his daughter in in the situation where she had to CALL HIM WHILE HE WAS CURRENTLY DOING AN INTERVIEW WITH THE LOCAL NEWS to tell him not to tell the world intimate details about a time she hooked up with international superstar Harry Styles.

“I told her that I loved her, was not sure if she heard..” Niall sung beautifully into the mic, and I smiled at him.

“The roof was pretty windy so I didn’t say a word” I sing next, both of us looking at each other and smiling.

“All I know at the end of the day is you want what you want and you say what you say and you follow your heart when you know itll break some tiiiimes.” We sing, before I burst out laughing .

“Okay lets take 5” Niall says and chuckles along .

“ Im sorry, the end always gets to me” I giggle, as we both take our headphones off and walk into the studio room, and I stop short when I see Justin sitting on one of the couches . Shit.

“Oh, hey Justin” I say, walking over to him and pressing a quick kiss to his lips, one he doesn’t return.

“Hey.. you guys sound good out there” Justin says, but I could hear the hurt in his voice and I feel bad immediately .

“Thanks mate, Y/N is very talented over here, now I see why everybody is trying to sign her” Niall compliments and I smile at him .

“Yeah, shes something. Hey Niall can you give us a second to talk?” Justin says, and Niall nods before walking out .

I sit down, already knowing how this conversation was gonna go down, so I mentally prepared myself.

“Soo, you and Niall huh?” Justin says, and I nod.

“He asked me to duet with him.” I defend.

“I recall asking you too, but you rejected me, multiple times.” Justin retorts, his jaw clenching .

“Its not the same Justin” I sigh.

“Whats not the same? You can sing with him but not me? Your boyfriend?” Justin snaps, and I groan.

“I just cant okay?” I say, standing up.

“Why not? You know how important that song is to me and now im singing it with Ariana because you didn’t want to! But here you are singing with Niall.”

“I didn’t want to sing your song!” I say, feeling myself get caught up.

Why Y/N, I wrote this song. Its really special to me. Why wouldn’t you want to-“

“Because why would I want to sing a love song with you when you probably wrote it for someone else!” I shout, before stopping short.

Justins face blanks, and I bite my lip, shaking my head.

“Y/N, w-what are you-“ Justin starts but I cut him off.

“I read the lyrics Justin, that song is clearly not about me” I say, voice thick with unshed tears.

Justin doesn’t reply, only confirming by words, and honestly it hurt.

“Why on earth would you think id sing that song with you? Our very first song, and you want it to be about your ex? How mad is that?” I say, shaking my head.

“Its not about anybody! Its just about facing hardships and overcoming” He defends, and I laugh through my tears.

“Over coming what? Her dumping you? You dumping her? That endless, unhealthy cycle you guys had for years on end?” I spit, before walking out, only to be faced with Niall.

“Raincheck?” I sniffle, wiping my eyes, and he nods sympathetically, and I storm past him, ignoring Justins crys behind me .

Before I leave the building I stop, turning around.

“Paparazzi is waiting for me out there and I really don’t want this on the headlines so please, just stop” I plead, putting my glasses on to hide my distraught face.

Justin fights a battle in his head before cursing .

“This conversation isn’t over” He promises, before turning and walking away.

Better Boyfriend, Better Lyrics

Pairing: Dean x Reader

Word Count: 1070ish

Warnings: Crappy Ex-Boyfriends, Swearing, Fluff

Summary: A song your ex-boyfriend wrote about you plays on the Impala’s radio while your current boyfriend is driving

A/N: This is a quick, fluffy little oneshot I wrote for @torn-and-frayed Songs of Season 3 Challenge. My song was 40000 Miles by Goodnight City. Feedback is always appreciated!

*gif not mine

“Hey, hey! No eating in Baby,” Your boyfriend scolded, making a grab for the chips in your hand while he drove the Impala. 

You pulled them out of his reach and argued, “You eat in her all the time!”

Dean made another swipe at your snack, causing you to jump as far away from him as the front seat of the Impala would allow. You reached your hand inside the bag and obnoxiously began to munch on your chips, giving Dean a smile of pure innocence that only made him roll his eyes.

Suddenly, the rock station that was proudly blasting Led Zeppelin through the Impala’s speakers changed to a song that Dean usually described as “Whiny Teenage Crap.”

Dean groaned at the blasphemy playing in his car and reached to change it.

“Oh no, wait! Turn it up!” You commanded, scooting closer to Dean and smacking his hand from the radio.

“You listen to this crap?” Deans asked, shooting you a look of shock and disgust.

“Only when it’s a song about me written by my jackass ex-boyfriend,” You revealed, cranking up the stereo.

Made in the AM listening session recap

Made in the A.M. Listening Session – I Am Jaggerme br>

First of all, the line inside the theater for the session was crazy pants. Super long, but for the most part, people sang One Direction songs and happily chatted. The positive affect was contagious.

Prior to the screening, there was a warning displayed regarding cell phone, camera or other recording device use, although this warning was not slightly enforced. There were ushers in the theater throughout the screening, but anyone could easily have recorded the entire film as phones and other devices were allowed inside, guests were simply asked to turn them off. Which is unfortunate, because apparently people recorded the sessions and the songs leaked.

The actual listening session started with the music videos for WMYB, Live While We’re Young, Kiss You, Story of My Life, Best Song Ever and Steal My Girl. Which was hella smart, because the videos got everyone pumped: the audience singing, clapping, and generally screaming their lungs out when their favorite came on screen. Good times were had by all during this trip down memory lane. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT: THE THRILL OF SEEING THE KISS YOU VIDEO ON A MOVIE SCREEN ALONE WAS WORTH THE COST OF ADMISSION.

Between each song, there were segments with the individual boys (never a group interview) wherein they discussed the songs and what they meant to them. These interviews gave me feelings. During the songs, clips were shown that represented different stages of One Direction’s evolution from Up All Night to Made in the A.M., including behind the scenes footage of video shoots, backstage at concerts, commercial shoots and tour clips. I did notice they used the same clip from the car commercial shoot twice. Bad form, One Direction. Bad form.

Hey Angel – My new jam. Harry compares it to Clouds in that it’s a really strong opener for the album. Killer drumbeats and just basically an amazing song. I will be listening to it on a loop.

Drag Me Down – You all know the score on this song. Beyoncé-style secret spy release, literally the greatest surprise ever because it’s such a good song. The boys noted this song kind of represented the aftermath of the past year. Again with the feelings. The official DMD video was played for this song.

Perfect – Another song you are all familiar with. I will say it was funny to hear Harry discuss it as sort of a non-romantic love song. Let me interject here that during the Perfect video, which was the official song video, the video cut away in a few spots to display the song title (this was the case with each song). Anyhoodles, the video cut away during the majority of Harry’s sprawled on the bed scene. Those in attendance were not pleased. Bless. Also, I love Harry to Reece’s Pieces. Postmodern feminist angel, that one.

Infinity – Another song you kids all know. But seriously, after hearing the entire album, I’m kind of surprised by what they have released as singles so far. I say this with love; Infinity will not be your favorite when you’ve heard the album in its entirety. The boys love Infinity and it was written on the first day of writing for the album. They are just super proud of this song, which is lovely.

End of the Day – This song is an enigma, wrapped in a riddle and shrouded in a mystery. I say this because the song is basically two songs in one. It starts out one way and then BAM! – it gets off the turnpike and heads in the other direction. It has a really great chorus and Louis noted that the hook just sticks with you. Louis is an adorable human being, by the way.

If I Could Fly – It’s important that you do these things when listening to this song. First, find a clean, safe space. Next, lie down within that space and then curl yourself into a very tight fetal position. Finally, maintain that position for the next fifteen to twenty years. This is a perfect song. The piano on this song makes me weep. This song is so lovely. I cannot talk enough about the greatness of this song. I need to go cry. For the next fifteen to twenty years.

Long Way Down – Liam describes this song as being heavily influenced by the 90’s musical scene, in particular Oasis and Robbie Williams. And can I just point out how wonderful it was to hear the boys talk about their musical influences and then hear the influences in the songs? It is freaking amazing. Their appreciation of the music that came before them is reverential and never merely derivative. They are so great. NIALL KILLS THIS SONG. The most precious thing ever was when Niall commented that he was encouraged to sing like The Boss, sing like Bruce (Springsteen). My love for Bruce Springsteen is borderline unholy, so for little Nialler to be looking up to Bruce and even imitating him (which was precious and priceless), well, it was just good stuff.

Never Enough – This is Niall’s favorite on the record. Niall is an adorable peanut by the way. THE HORNS WERE RECORDED IN MY CITY – CHICAGO!!! They mentioned The Windy City a couple times, which was awesome because the theater packed with Chicagoans went nuts for it. The song is basically doo-wop, with a sprinkle of reggae and thoroughly modern mojo.

Olivia – Harry mentioned the strings were recorded at Abbey Road Studios, which was absolutely perfect and appropriate because this song just pays homage to The Beatles in such a fun way. There are really good horn sections in this song that reminded me of Yellow Submarine and other bits sounded like Dear Prudence. OH!! And the song has these epic Willy Wonka World of Imagination-style riffs that are so so good. It’s just a really great song and I can’t wait to listen to it on repeat. Also, Harry said although this song is called Olivia, it could be about a girl, but that’s not necessarily the case. Why is he a perfect person?

What a Feeling – This song is to Made in the A.M. what Fireproof was to Four, which is kind of awesome when one considers how fabulous Fireproof is. Niall mentioned a Fleetwood Mac influence and this is so fitting, because anyone who loves Fleetwood Mac can feel the album Mirage in the song Fireproof. This song is similar in that it boasts amazing harmonies that are so smooth and lovely. This song resonates maturity and the boys’ voices have grown so much. They’re really great artists. Recognize this already, Rolling Stone magazine.

Love You Goodbye – Get your tissues out because Louis kills this song so hard you are going to want to cry for about ten weeks. He stated that this song is about a breakup and seeing your ex afterwards. There was a collective “Awwww” in the theater that could be heard in three counties. But most importantly, LOUIS’ VOCALS WERE SO AMAZING!!! He sounded truly great and there was none of that unnecessary autotune nonsense that upsets me about Perfect. It was just his voice, unaltered and beautiful. Louis’ high note? I can’t breathe.

I Want to Write You a Song – This song is Liam’s favorite off the album and Liam was super adorable talking about it and it just made me happy. RECORDED IN CHICAGO! WOOT! This is a really fun, sweet song and it kind off reminds me a bit of the Moldy Peaches with a little smidge of folk thrown in. Love.

History – This song is a love song to the fans. Accompanying this were clips of fans throughout the years and it was just a strong reminder that One Direction literally has the BEST FANS IN THE WORLD. Never doubt that, because this fandom is literally the beesknees. Louis describes this as a perfect song. Niall mentions Otis Redding as being an influence and that’s very evident. There are really good harmonies in this song, a great beat, and very clean vocals.

Temporary Fix – This song is one-night-stand drunk love smut. Niall sounds great in this song. They all do. I really think those boys have been meeting their vocal coaches, because this album does not sound manipulated and their vocals are just so on point.

Walking in the Wind – I LOVE THIS SONG SO HARD! Harry discussed Paul Simon’s masterpiece Graceland as being an influence and the song definitely celebrates Simon’s aesthetic. How much do I love that Harry loves Graceland? That album is one of the greatest records of the 20th Century. This is a song I will play on repeat. It’s layered and lovely and makes me happy.

Wolves – This song is pure One Direction. If different artists and genres influenced other songs on the album, than One Direction influences this song. It just sounds like a classic One Direction single. Strong vocals and harmonies and really fun lyrics.

Made in the A.M. – This is really fun way to close out the album. Niall talked about how they would work on the album in the early morning hours and stated, “If you don’t remember what happened at 2 AM, you can at 6 because you’ve sobered up a little by then.” I love Nialler. This song has GREAT GUITAR licks. Seriously. So good.

All in all, the Made in the A.M. session was fun and the positive affect of the amazing fans made it even better. I can’t wait to have the complete album to play on repeat. I think for 25 bucks they should have sent out the deluxe album, so that aspect was uncool, but it was a positive experience. This is truly One Direction’s most mature and strongest album yet. Love and peace! #onedirection #madeintheam #madeintheamlisteningsession #ificouldflyismyjam #harrystyles #louistomlinson #liampayne #niallhoran #thecraicishappiness #album #love

Hiddleswift and Brangelina

The spiritual similarities have been nagging at me ever since Tom and Taylor’s first Rhode Island pictures, and I think it would do us all a lot of good to examine the past for the sake of realistically looking at the present and future.

EDIT 7/7/16 at 10:40PM - I made a rather silly factual error and have now corrected both it and my approach to the topic. Thanks to the anon who made me realize the mistake.
