“Sometimes I look at Kelli O’Hara and I think all the girls in the fairy tales were based on her. She’s beautiful. She’s funny. She’s smart. She sings like nobody on the planet. She dances like Ginger Rogers— I don’t even think she knew that, but she does. She’s been in nine Broadway shows. She’s been nominated for five Tony Awards. She has an amazing husband, two wonderful children, and makes a mean grits casserole. She’s performed in everything from South Pacific to King Lear to our own The Bridges of Madison County, this season. She’s appeared with the New York Philharmonic, been on Sex and the City, performed at Carnegie Hall, and three times at the Kennedy Center Honors, But here’s the deal, folks: Kelli O’Hara is no princess. Bart Sher says that what makes Kelli so spectacular is that she is a woman on stage. She brings a woman’s understanding and emotion to every part she plays. She will not let a word or a lyric get by her that isn’t right. And when everything is right, she falls into your arms and you cannot imagine ever being loved by anybody else.”
Happy 41st Birthday to the best there is, Kelli O’Hara!
“I fucking adore you.” Grayson said sneaking a quick glance in your direction before resuming to stare straight ahead.
He knows better than to let his eyes linger on you for too long as you would scowl him to pay attention to the road.
He often got distracted, sending your heart into a frenzy as you would see a vehicle get too close to you guys.
He would often say that it was your fault for being so damn gorgeous. He says that you’re at fault to his distraction.
“Well that was random.” You say with a small laugh as you look at him, adverting your eyes from your phone.
You two stood in silence for a while now before his spontaneous declaration. He was listening to the music that was coming from the radio while focusing on the road while you were on your phone.
He raised his eyebrow in expectation as he sent you yet another quick glance.
“I fucking adore you too, Grayson.” You say with a shake of a head and a smile on your lips.
He smiled in content as he takes your hand in his before directing it towards his lips, placing a soft kiss at the back.
“Hey, I got an idea!” You quickly said as you repositioned yourself in the seat.
You slightly sat up as you crossed your leg underneath and sat down on it. Your way now facing Grayson, it was easier to speak to him now.
“What is it babe?” He asked glancing towards you.
You had a mischievous smile on, that couldn’t be good news for your boyfriend.
“How about we each take turns plugging our phone to the car and we let a song shuffle and the one that is playing we sing along to it as loud as we possibly can.” You explain.
“Okay…” He agrees to your idea with slight wariness evident in his voice.
“Perfect, I’ll go first.” You say as you grab your phone and plug the aux chord in.
You went into your Disney playlist and tapped on shuffle, this was going to be good, you thought with a sly smile on.
“Please don’t tell me this is what think it is.” Grayson groans as soon as he hears the small music playing in the background.
“Of course we’re not going to duet a Disney son-” You didn’t even try to finish your sentence as the first verse began and you started singing making your boyfriend make a sound in protest.
“All my life has been a series of doors in my face…” You began to sing as you smiled widely at your very frustrated looking boyfriend.
He had that very cute frown on, with his kissable lips drown into a frown. His jaw slightly clenching. What you weren’t expecting though, was for him to do an eighteen hundred turn of emotions and start singing yelling the next verse.
“I’ve been searching my whole life to find my own place…” He continued the song very loudly with a big smile on making you burst into laughter.
The whole car ride was spent that way, both of you yelling the lyrics to Disney songs, way off key.
A/NI’m sorry it took me so long to upload, I hope you still enjoyed it, thank you so much for requesting this. As for the other requests they’re coming, I promise !
My thoughts on each song from Taylor’s newest album Reputation
After listening to the whole album I have so many things I want to talk about and it’s gonna be long so…
First of I love that “…Ready For It?” is the first track cause it just sets the tone of the album so perfectly! From the get-go the song captures the vibe and sound of Reputation. You immediately feel that this will be so different from Taylor’s previous albums in terms of style and I love that.
End Game (feat Ed Sheeran & Future)
So this song I gotta say took me by storm, cause I was not expecting this at all! The lyrics are just genius and I feel like that there’s all these elements that shouldn’t match, but here they do!!! And it sounds freaking amazing!
I Did Something Bad
I’m praying that this song is the next single caused it fucking slayed me! Do people still use the word eargasm cause hello this song had me going like crazy! I feel like a freaking queen that won’t take no shit from anyone listening to this song.
Don’t Blame Me
Already this song is very personal and I get a overwhelming feeling just thinking about it. When I first heard it there was something that really resonated with me in these lyrics. Every time I hear the chorus I start to tear up and I’m just in awe how much this song speaks to me. Definitely my favorite song from this album hands down.
Oh my god this song hit me right in the feels! I’m telling you it is unbelievable how beautiful this song is written. When I’m listening to it, I feel like I’m just waking up from the most sweetest dream ever, and I’m both happy and sad that I experienced it. Sad that the dream is over and I can’t go back, but happy that I had the dream in the first place. I know that it sounds weird, but that’s the best way I can describe it. Heartwarming and filled with love, I don’t know how else to put it.
Look What You Made Me Do
God I love this song! Fucking badass as hell and it’s just the perfect representation of “In the end, I will have the last laugh.” Also my favorite lyrics from this one is EVERY SINGLE LINE GOD DAMN IT TAYLOR YOU DID IT AGAIN
“And then the world moves on, but one thing’s for sure/ Maybe I got mine, but you’ll all get yours” Listen this fucking lyric slays me to the grave!
So It Goes…
Listening to this song is a experience in itself. It’s like you’re all of sudden in this dream world where everything is in slow motion and there are just bright beautiful colors all around you. (I know that this dosen’t make any sense, but that’s how I feel when I’m listening to this song.)
Ok so Gorgeous is my jam! It’s such a fun song that just makes me so damn happy. I love love love singing along and dancing like maniac in my living room to this one. I will stan forever!
Everything about this song is so freaking heartbreaking. The melody and lyrics are a masterpiece and yes I will say that this song is better than “All too well.”!!! Yes I said it! When I first heard it I was such a mess to be honest. I mean it kills me that it’s about a relationship that was doomed to fail from the beginning. And these lyrics right here had me bawling my eyes out!
“While he was runnin’ after us, I was screamin’, “go, go, go!” But with three of us, honey, it’s a side show And a circus ain’t a love story And now we’re both sorry (we’re both sorry)”
King Of My Heart
This song also made me into a emotional mess but like in a good way lmao. Please Taylor makes this a single cause it’s too amazing not to be <3 <3 <3
Dancing With Our Hands Tied
Listen guys I freaking love this song too! The rhythm, the beat, the lyrics, every thing is on point! I wouldn’t be surprised if Taylor makes this as a single as well, cause damn it’s good!
There’s no denying that this might be one of my all time favorites from Taylor. I especially love this lyric, “And if I get burned, at least we were electrified.” The song itself is just magical
This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things
BOI I’m living for this song! SPILL THE TEA TAYLOR LMAO. Again this is also my favorite cause it’s fucking badass as hell! Taylor’s laugh had me screaming YES so loud! Also favorite part is when she sings “Here’s a toast to my real friends.” and I was like SLAY QUEEN
Call It What You Want
I got chills when I heard this song for the first time, and still the chorus get me every time. It just makes me smile so much and ahhh it’s so good.
New Years’s Day
This song made me believe in love again so I’m very emotional just thinking about it.
Overall I can not express all the love I have for Reputation right now. I never thought that Red would be my second favorite album from Taylor Swift, but it is. Of course Red will always be special to me, but Reputation you took me by storm.
I don’t want to get too mushy, but @taylorswift thank you so much for blessing the world with your music. I’m incredibly lucky to have you in my life <3 <3
This has been a long post so I’m very impressed if you guys read the whole thing lmao xoxox
I was tagged by the eternally beautiful @himchans-eye-dimple to do this fun little post! Honestly I love getting tagged to do these things so thank you so so much! Without further ado let’s get started!!
Eureka by Zico and Zion.T - This started with an Astro crack video and has become such a jam when I need a pick me up!
Follow Me by Toppdogg - I watched a video of the coolest parts in choreos and this was one of the suggestions and I just fell in love!
Woochuchu by Apple.B - AAAHHHHH I finally have daughters in this industry! This is such a cute song and it’s been stuck in my head since it came out pretty much!
The Real by N.Flying - Listen I love bands so so much, I was a rock fan before I got into K-Pop and this song is so upbeat I just love it!
gold by offonoff and Dean - Ok so I have @onofffon to thank for introducing me to this group, this song is so chill I really liked it and got to chill out listening!
You Bad! Don’t Make Me Cry by Matilda - I finally took the initiative and got into another girl group and these four are brilliant! They don’t have a lot of music but what they do have are bops!
Spectacular by Pentagon - I’m not sure why this is on my list but it’s such a fun song I am living, not sure if it’s just me but it sounds kinda like carnival music?
Tell Me What It Is by SF9 - So I’m writing a fic at the moment by this title and so it has been playing in my head on repeat pretty much all the time so I guess you could say I’m jamming to it!
Oi by Monsta X - I bought the Shine Forever Repackaged album and everytime this track comes on in the car I get super hyped and can’t help moving along to it!
Make It Rain/Zero For Conduct by Block B Bastarz - Whenever I listen to one of these I have to listen to the other so they’re both equal on this list I suppose, they’re just such fast paced songs they always get me pumped for work!
In terms of slow/sad songs I don’t really listen to them much honestly, but I do have two I want to include on this list
Only If by Roy Kim - This is such a soft and soothing song, I went through a breakup 2 months ago and I played Roy’s albums to help me sleep, but this song in particular is just so so beautiful I love it!
Sorry by The Rose - From the first second of the song his voice makes me want to cry, there is so much emotion and pain and even though I don’t know what the lyrics are it still hurts my heart whenever I listen, and I keep listening because it is a damn good song!
Lyrical Fanfiction Challenge! Choose an emotional song you LIKE, and a pairing you HATE! Try to write a short drabble based on one lyric from the song making it as good, bad, ugly, happy, or sad as you please. Then anonymously send this to at least five other fanfiction writers!
Okay so I honestly tried to think of a Yuri On Ice ship that I hated that I thought I could write but I came up blank so I hopped fandoms for this one.
Sorrrrryyyyyyy. I know at least one person will get mad about me doing SasuSaku but it fit the song really well. T.T
Song I chose: Flowers of Flesh And Blood - Nicole Dollanganger
Pairing I chose: SasuSaku (Warning for angst and violence I guess)
~Why didn’t anyone tell me love is like being fucked with a knife~
Sakura’s breath leaves her as her back slams into the dirt. The only sound in her ears is the echoing crack of….she counts…one…two…three…of her ribs breaking. The pain joins in with the sharp numbness in her left leg where it too is shattered.
A part of her had hoped this would never happen again, not after the last time. But that part of her is breaking alongside the rest of her body. It’s the part of her that knows Sasuke could change, the part that has held fast for years waiting, only to realize in this moment that he won’t, that he wants to be like this, that he doesn’t care if she lives or dies and no matter how hard she fights he just never will.
She opens her eyes as his shadow crosses over her. Her breathing is labored, but she’s a medical nin, a good one, and she’s already healing her wounds.
Just as she focuses her chakra on her ribs, he brings his foot down on her chest, snapping them further.
“When are you going to learn, Sakura?” She looks up at him as he speaks, his voice is calm and flat, the way it’s been since they were kids. “When are you going to give up?”
She opens her mouth to answer, but he adds more pressure to her chest and her lungs burn. She holds his gaze even as her vision darkens around the edges.
The man above her doesn’t look anything like the boy she fell in love with. He hasn’t in a long time, but she’s been projecting her emotions onto him, adding to something in her head that’s nothing more than an illusion. She only wishes that she could have seen this sooner, saved herself.
Her body is rocked with the realization and the pain of her injuries as Sasuke speaks again. “I’m going to kill you this time. Then I’ll kill the rest. Naruto, all of them.”
The statement is acidic, laced with the unfeeling evil inside him. It strikes something within her that she’s never felt before. Even as her vision fades she makes herself one promise before the world goes completely dark.
[INFO] 160619 Yesung’s The Agit: Sweet Coffee Concert
Leeteuk MC-ed and Yesung went backstage and said for the hundredth time that Super Junior will be releasing an album next year.
Yesung: “I heard that the shows for this week are sold out. I’m feeling proud but on the other hand, I’m worried that I really should do well.”
Yesung sang ‘It Has to be You’ instead of 'Gray Paper’ and 'Her Over Flowers’ instead of 'Loving You’.
Kyuhyun came up to the stage surprisingly after ‘Promise You’. Yesung said today is also Japan live-view of his concert, so he asked Kyuhyun to greet fans in Japanese. Kyuhyun talked ‘fluently’ and shouted ‘Ogneki desuka’ with his folded palm (teasing Yesung’s small palm). During ‘Your Eyes’, Kyuhyun kept holding his laugh when he had eye contact with Yesung. During talk, Kyuhyun was so clingy with Yesung and hugged him and connected their hands together. Kyuhyun even knelled before Yesung to make a dramatic scene, and he kept laughed. Seems Kyuhyun really loves to joke/play around with him. When the time was over, Kyuhyun said. “It’s already break time”, and he said bye to the fans and dragged Yesung along with him backstage. (cr. MoonsLounge)
Leeteuk said that because they were busy, Kyuhyun and him kept it as secret that they’re going toYesung concert. But Leeteuk felt burdened because Kyuhyun sang when he went on stage.
Kyuhyun changed Your Eyes lyrics from “너만 원하는나 (I only want you)” to “예성만 원하는나(I only want Yesung)” [eng trans by soihappy]
Yesung said that he was surprised when 'Your Eyes’ played and when Kyuhyun came out.
Leeteuk said that Yesung should be a dancer and asked him who will replace him in singing. Yesung said that it can’t be Eunhyuk and suggested that Donghae is his rival instead. Leeteuk said that Donghae’s dancing style’s getting different, especially during Sorry Sorry.
Yesung teared up a bit while singing the last part of ‘Happy Together’. He said, “I don’t know why, but every time I sing this song, my heart feels like crying… Thank you, ELF!” Yesung added, “the lyrics of ‘Happy Together’ makes me emotional. A lot of things come to my mind, ever time I sing this song. I think that this song shows how thankful we are for the strength everyone always provides us, especially when we get tired and exhausted from working hard. It was great that I sang this song. Thank you.”
Yesung: “A fan passed a story about not giving up and thinking of what a person can reach in the future without quitting. Honestly, when I think about it, I debuted after experiencing a lot of ups and downs. From the long time which I spent as a trainee, up until I debuted, the members were there and there were people who guided me. I really wanted to say now how thankful I am to those people. During that time, there were a lot of times when I felt like giving up, but I didn’t. I think it’s also because my parents gave me strength, then I wouldn’t be able to stand in this position.. Actually, there were two times when I told myself to just quit, but I repeatedly bit the bullet and endured everything until the end. It’s the reason why I am able to sing in front of everyone today.”
Leeteuk said to Yesung that he really should gain weight. There was one time when Ryeowook saw Yesung and said in a teasing manner, “Oh? You look swollen today!” even though he isn’t. Yesung knows that it was a joke but still got surprised.
Yesung tried to look for a female partner who can sing ‘Spring in Me’ together with him, but he said that he isn’t close to any female celebrities. He isn’t even close with female idols in his company. So the fans cheered on.
Brother Su asked Yesung to do the rap part of the Shinhwa song which he did before and he did it with so much feelings.
Yesung was standing in he middle of the rookie boy group when they went on stage to say their greetings. He copied the rookies and bowed 90 degrees. He said that doesn’t he look younger.
When the guests, NCT, went onstage, one of the member’s (Taeyong?) hair color looked impressive. When Yesung saw this, he said to him that soon he will be doomed with hair like him. (it looks like yesung regret dyeing his hair)
Leeteuk: “It is nice hosting for other groups, but I miss hosting for my team like this.”
Yesung said that he was there when Donghae composed ‘Loving You’ and kept on telling him that “you should do it this way, that way, etc…”. The song then turned out to be his favourite.
Yesung: “I don’t really cry a lot, I don’t even cry when receiving awards or when having a sad day, but my tears are increasing (lately). It struck me that I am missed (everyone) to that extent..But it is not because of sadness, my tears have fallen because I’m really thankful and grateful.”
♡ “It’s Okay, now count one two three and forget
Forget all the sad memories, hold my hand and laugh” ♡
This song and the video makes me so emotional omg ㅠㅠ It’s so amazing to hear how the fans began to sing when the music is turned off 😭 thank for these perfect song and wonderful lyrics♡ ᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠ

Hello love, would you do one where you play guitar in the streets & Jack walks by & is like ‘can you play something from ATL’ & you’re like ‘I can play every song, your choice’ &then he sits next to you & just listens for a while. You decide the end!
AN Sorry for the lack of update yesterday, friends. It’s hard to have dinner with a bunch of family friends for four hours I would probably die if I spent any moment longer in that room. But it exhausted me so I didn’t have the energy to write, but here I am! Yay! I really hope you enjoy it, there’s no conversation for this one :) Enjoy my lovelies xx
Sometimes it can be rewarding to play on the street. Some people think it’s demeaning, but I think it’s quite fun. It’s cool all the people you meet while you’re sitting out here, rain or shine. They seem to like listening to me play and sing, but the best thing is when you get a fellow musician to hear you or compliment you. Both have happened.
I was strumming along to a tune in my head, not really paying attention to what I was doing. Mostly just zoning out, playing a few chords to the rhythm part of a song. I have yet to figure out which one I’m actually playing, but it’ll come to me.
All we have are flashes of moments,
Lightening of emotions that strike us out of nowhere.
When I trick my mind that I’m okay
is when I get a shock,
a flash of you..
That haunts me through my day
sending shivers up my spine.
I get this heaviness in my eyes, and they begin to water
and my chest feels full and my throat gets tight -
I don’t know how to write it, I’m sorry. I can’t make it sound pretty, or lyrical. You never understood my poetry, the way my heart loved, the way I looked at life, but I miss you, please let me know what happened.
If there was a way for you to read this, and get the wind knocked out of you so you could understand, I would write it - but this is me exposed and open. Plainly and easily telling you - you were my best friend, my soulmate, you broke me and I wish I knew what I did to deserve it.
can we talk about how beautiful 일아요 is ??? like im so so so happy that namjoon broke the gender boundaries in a song and its so amazing im crying IM SORRY FOR THIS im so emotional i had to say this to someone SORRY
And let me just say that isn’t even the half of it. Like there’s so many reasons to appreciate how amazing that song is and how hard Namjoon worked for it like, I’m on a roll, I can actually list this out.
There’s so many bands that don’t ever write their own lyrics or produce their music or anything. They’re just given music and lyrics to perform. The fact that Bangtan makes their own choreography, writes so many of their songs and the music where other people don’t even know how, sound great live without backing just goes to show how talented they are and how amazing they are. And I’m sure everyone knows Namjoon was on the synthesizer, was the sound engineer, the lyricist and the composer of 일아요 besides signing it with Jungkook. He did all that by himself because he’s talented and amazing and it’s worlds of fantastic that he can do that.
And then the gender equality. Like he addressed ARMY regardless of their gender because so many people forget that the fandom isn’t just made of a female population. Quite besides the fact that he’s always supported LGBTQ as a community and came out with these lyrics days after the gay community was rejected in Korea.
Namjoon’s singing voice. There’s literally nothing to say except how hard he’s trying and how much he’s grown since the person he was three years ago and that’s just plain beautiful.
The fact that none of this is for album sales or money. Like the pure fact that they’re just doing this because they felt like it, felt like making ARMY feel special and thanking them for sticking it out with them for three years and wrote a song for it is what does it for me. They’re selling nothing, but trying to be humble and thankful for where they are and the people that got them there. I can’t begin to say how proud I truly am about this band.
Jet Black Heart is fucking beautiful. I've been listening to it for hours on repeat and I honestly can't describe how I feel.
I'm immensely proud of this song but my heart is broken. These lyrics drip with emotion and you can't tell me that this was just something they came up with. Every word from this song came directly from the heart and you can just hear the raw emotion.
The part that bothers me the most is that there is deeper meaning behind these lyrics and look who wrote this song, Malum.
It kills me knowing that someone had hurt these boys and it obviously deeply affected them, especially Michael. Think about it; Wrapped Around Your Finger, The Only Reason, Close As Strangers and now this..
Michael has gone through something that has clearly left him a 'broken' and that breaks my heart. I wish I knew what it was and I truly hope that writing about all of it helps him to cope. He is truly an angel and doesn't deserve shit from anyone.
As far as I'm concerned, if you make fun of, start drama about or harrass any of the boys; do yourself a favor and unfollow me right now. I don't need that in my life but I do need 5SOS so there it is..
But just back to the songs, lyrically its amazing but did you hear MICHAEL'S VOICE, I'm serious.. And I'm sorry, Luke and Cal sound amazing to and the harmonies are enough to make me wanna pass out, but THIS IS MIKEYS SONG and you can't deny it.
Overall the song has made me an emotional wreck but that's okay.. 5SOS has me on a constant roller coaster with all they do but I'm psyched for SGFG more than I ever have been; October 23 can't come fast enough 😰
And just imagine Jet Black Heart live 😭 and the SGFG tour in general..
It’s silly but sometimes it just hits me how much I care about Louis. I know it doesn’t make any sense, I’ve never met him and there’s only so much you can know about him as a fan, I’m probably completely biased but he makes me really emotional. He’s so strong and brave, he’s a beautiful person and a talented artist who has the most amazing voice and writes some pretty fantastic lyrics. I just want him to be happy, that’s all. I want him to be free, I want him to be able to be himself without people judging him for it. He gets so much shit from so many people, he’s seen like this disgusting person and it really kills me because how is it possible that you don’t see the kind of person he really is?
Sorry for the rant, I just wanted to talk about how important Louis Tomlinson is.
Hi my name is Feyi (pronounced like Tina Fey’s last name) I just to say thank you. Thank you for what you have done from the last past years, you have been a MASSIVE inspiration to me and your music describes every single feeling I have ever felt towards anyone but the thing is no one around understands why I listen to your music. The majority amount of people at my school says I shouldn’t listen to your music because I’m black and I don’t see why the colour of my skin matters to the genre of music I listen to and it does make me upset. So I decided to do something WAYY out of my comfort zone and speak up (I was trying to find a way to put ‘Speak Now’ in this hehe) and told all the haters why I listen to you and the emotions I feel every time the lyrics flow through my head and now they bow down to me (jokes they don’t).
So SWIFTly moving on (I’m so annoying) I also wanted to say I’m sorry, I’m sorry to say this but I don’t think I can attend the 1989 World Tour this year and if I did it would of been my first ever concert that I’ll be able to see you in. The reason why I cannot go is that no one wants to go with me and experience an AMAZING wonderful person which is you.
So I can probably tell your NOT reading this (which is embarrassing) but I hope you have an amazing day and I hope I can meet you one day and say hello, I love you and thank you because I think you need to hear that from me.
Hugs and kisses from the UK 🇬🇧
I love you Taylor forever and always 💜
P.S This is one of my favourite Polaroids of you.
