Ok but real talk, in Making A Home, the harmonies between Mendel, Trina, and WHIZZER make my heart feel so complete??? they’re so pretty????? and A NDREW SCOTT RANNELLS’ VOICE IS ACTUAL PERFECTION, like anyone can FIGHT ME on that. The song makes me feel warm but sad at the same time and that’s what’s so great about it?? Like they’re stories are so different during that song, Mendel and Trina are building a new life and a new home for themselves T O G E T H E R and Whizzer just got kicked out of Marvin’s place, and they’re feelings are so SEPARATE so it makes me feel so many different emotions, like yEs Whizzer’s sad, bUT Trindel. B U T whizzvin is failing. BUUUUT the H ARmOniES :’)))) I swear it’s the most underrated song in the entire musical. NO, the most underrated song of the ENTIRE MARVIN TRILOGY,,, and-
WHY does everyone who likes The Last Five Years not like The Schmuel Song ??? Like it’s so good???? Yeah it’s long but the message of it is lovely and it’s like the highlight of their relationship imo !!!
It’s just Jamie using the thing that he loves most to encourage the person that he loves most to do the thing that she loves most. And it’s 7 minutes of genuine happiness for both Kathy and Jamie and it’s one of the few times they actually communicate. So yeah stop hating The Schmuel Song
As I drove home with my little one last night I told her stories about the funny things she did when she was a baby. How she could hum a Stevie Wonder song before she could talk, how she would babble “thikathikathika” as we changed her diapers, etc.. As I ran out of goofy stories and her laughter died down, she said “I have a very happy life” and for a moment everything in the world was ok.
I felt like a misfit and alone throughout a good part of my life, but your songs have always been there for me. Especially in those sad moments they made me feel strong enough to keep going, even through the hardest time in my life so far.
Let me tell you a story. Your album Taylor Swift showed me that it was ok if I had not found my place in the world yet. Fearless made me believe that love is real and we must never lose hope in finding it. Speak Now made me realize we must always say what we feel and we should never keep it inside, it will just turn to regret in the future. It also showed me that even if it’s magical, love can bring us pain and unhappiness. Love can be the best thing that’ll ever happen to us, it can bring us shiny sparkles, but it can also be an obscure and subtle game.
Red: I have a really deep relationship with this album. It was released at the exact moment as I was passing through my worst moment. I felt like I couldn’t express what I felt and put in words the pain until I heard that album. I listened to your lyrics and that helped me know that I was not alone. It made me feel like I could let the pain go and search for happiness without letting the bad times define me.
And it was at this exact moment I started to see you as a friend. A friend who lives far away and doesn’t know me, but seems to know me and seems to be right beside me right when I need her.
I was almost fully recovered when you released 1989. This album is very important to me. It got me thinking we should find ourselves and even love ourselves before we belong to someone else. It cleared my mind and helped me realize my mistakes don’t define who I am and that YES, it is possible to look for happiness inside myself.
The next year I finally found myself. I am now completely happy. You were a part of this process and you’ll always be a part of it. You have become a friend that walks with me, with your songs, quotes, and speeches in my best and worst moments. I am very thankful for that.
I love you and I hope someday to thank you in person for all you’ve done for me. THANK.YOU.THANK.YOU.THANK.YOU <3
Each song on this running playlist clocks in at 145 beats per minute, helping you stay on track for a 10:30 minute mile. This particular mix is made up of a balance between rock, alternative and pop songs:
"(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction" by The Rolling Stones
“Use It” by The New Pornographers
“That’s Not My Name” by The Ting Tings
“Rehab” by Amy Winehouse
“Fantasy” by MS MR
“Ooh La La” by Goldtrapp
“My Life Would Suck Without You” by Kelly Clarkson
ALAN MENKEN’S BEST WORK EVER. The music literally hits you. A wall of sound that will give you 24 chills per minute
The overtures are the songs of the show are SUNG A CAPELLA IN LATIN. HUNCHBACK MEDLEYS IN LATIN
Michael Arden has the most angelic voice I have ever heard and I could listen to him holding out a single note for the rest of my life and be a-ok with it (Out There, Heaven’s Light, and Made of Stone are everything to me)
Quasimodo is partially deaf and throughout the show uses sign language. This is the only disabled Disney main character (unless you count Crutchie, but he’s more of a supporting role. Quasi is the story)
Elements from Victor Hugo’s original story cut from the movie were brought back, like the Frollo bros, Claude Frollo is not a judge but an archbishop, the death of a certain character (no spoilers), and no goofy gargoyles
No goofy gargoyles
A bit of empathy for Frollo? It’s conflicting but omg man
Esmeralda is played by WOC Ciara Renée (actually though)
Okay, so this is almost the first post I’ve made on tumblr, so forgive me if i’m doing anything wrong.
This is a list of songs that i think fits @kazliin ’s fic Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches, so I wanted to share it. I’m going to give the names and artists of the songs, and then a few lyrics and a short explanation on why i think it fits the story. but most of them are about yuuri and viktor’s relationship, so …. *shrugs*
Got me looking so crazy right now // Your love’s got me looking so crazy right now // Take me to church I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies // I can tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Yuuri’s heartache when he realizes that he doesn’t see Viktor as a rival anymore.
You’ve got it all // You’ve lost your mind in the sound // There’s so much more // You can reclaim your crown // You’re in control // Rid of the monsters inside your head // Put all your thoughts to bed // You can be king again
Bring me out // Come and find me in the dark now // Everyday by myself I’m breaking down // I don’t wanna fight alone anymore // Bring me out // Come and save me from my own pride // My God I need a hope I can’t deny // In the end I’m realizing // I was never meant to fight on my own
i finished lol. btw tell me if the links aren’t working or there are any typos because im not a very proofread kinda person.
Ok, I’m a babby-n00b fan (it’s been what, two weeks, three?), but I really frickin’ love the band The Dear Hunter and I want to gush about their music and I enjoy ranking things so…yeah, here’s me talking about my favorite songs from the Acts. (no major story spoilers)
Please feel free to completely ignore if you aren’t interested in my semi-coherent and less-than-sophisticated ramblings. X’D
It was hard dating God. Chuck was temperamental. He was used to getting his own way, and that stubbornness you’d seen in all the archangels was a learned trait if there ever was one.
It was also amazing. Chuck could be so thoughtful, creating entire locations for the two of you to escape to from scratch. You never wanted for anything, not that you asked for much. He could spend hours worshipping you, making you feel as if you were the Supreme Being in the relationship.
These days, however, he was growing restless. It was nothing new. As someone who’d been around literally forever, you assumed the man would get a little bored from time to time. Often he took up new hobbies.
This time, he’d started performing. Singing, to be exact, and playing guitar at random hole in the wall venues. It impressed you that he even bothered to make a go of it like a regular person. All he had to do was snap his fingers and he could be the biggest musician in North America.
You imagined that would take all the fun out of it, however.
He was good at it and incredibly sexy, something that didn’t go unnoticed by the other women at these places. You knew a part of him loved the attention. Rather, his ego did, but the rest of him was firmly devoted to you and every time he played he made sure there was a spot saved for you at the very front.
Tonight was a bit of a celebration. It was his first gig at a really nice spot that drew a lot of locals in the area. He was nervous, you could tell, and you didn’t know what you spent more time on: fixing his hair because he couldn’t stop running his hand through it or reminding him to relax.
You knew it was an even bigger deal than you initially thought when you walked in to take your seat and Sam and Dean were also there. They never made an appearance unless the world was ending or there was something to celebrate. Considering you’d helped him put together the set list, it was safe to assume it was the latter.
When Niall had invited you over for
dinner, you had assumed it was going to be a group of people. You had only met
a few weeks ago, at the birthday party of a mutual friend. Since asking for
your number after you kept running into each other, you had begun to banter and
flirt a little via text. Last night, at the pub with all of your friends, the
flirting continued but he never made a move. He casually mentioned that you
should come over to his for dinner as you gave him a quick hug goodbye. When
you arrived, you looked around for your friends.
“Where is everyone?” you asked as
you entered his home and looked around. His house was immaculately clean and
modern. It suited him. He looked completely at ease in a white shirt that was
cuffed at the sleeves. On his feet, patterned socks stuck out below his tight jeans.
“Everyone?” he asked, his eyebrows
going up in confusion before pulling you into a tight hug and swaying you
slightly. God, he smelled good.
“I thought you were having people
over for dinner.”
Ok so I thought this would be a fun idea! I put my most-used playlist on shuffle, and worked my way down the list of characters. There is also a lyric from the song that I thought was most appropriate for each character! Don’t judge me
I’m holding on your rope, got me ten feet off the ground And I’m hearing what you say, but I just can’t make a sound You tell me that you need me then you go and cut me down, but wait You tell me that you’re sorry, didn’t think I’d turn around
So I’ll start a revolution from my bed 'Cause you said the brains I had went to my head Step outside, summertime’s in bloom Stand up beside the fireplace Take that look from off your face You ain’t ever gonna burn my heart out

Bad Memories aren't getting better but in them they still live
There was a time back in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s when I was in a self inflicted dark place. I initially thought I was just toying with the darker side, the shadowy parts of life you’re supposed to avoid. Then I realized it was much easier to slide down than to climb back out. I reached a point where I wasn’t sure if I’d make it out alive, and mostly didn’t care. Sort of like I’d written myself into a real life shitty story that was maybe what I deserved anyhow.
Music probably saved me. Not because what I heard resonated at some level that told me other people felt the same things. No, it wasn’t that simple. It was more a matter of losing myself in a song, both the power of the music and the world of the lyrics. Also it formed a soundtrack for the crappy personal movie I was playing a part in. Certain music fit bad nights and my confused mind perfectly. Among that music-
“Shine” the EP by Mother Love Bone
“Ultramega OK” and “Louder Than Love” by Soundgarden
“Dirt” and “Facelift” by Alice in Chains
“Bleach” by Nirvana
“Houdini” by Melvin’s
and everything by Skinny Puppy and Sisters of Mercy.
It’s odd. There’s some solidly bad memories attached to that music. Listening to “Louder Than Love” while cruising Southfield, Ferndale and Berkeley looking for a crack dealer who had ripped off $600 from a friend. Listening to “It Ain’t Like That Anymore” right before going into the apartment of a girlfriend on the night she took three shots at me with a Walther PPK.
Hearing “Chloe Dancer/Crown of Thorns” in my friend’s car after getting bailed out of jail. Strangely though, I’ve still loved and listened to that music. For some stranger reason, as the singers of those songs have died, the dark memories come back instead of all the others. It has nothing to do with youth or wanting to be young again. It really doesn’t. I think rather it’s, as crappy as those memories are, in them the singers are still alive. The potential for more great music exists. No more. Now Chris Cornell. Voices of ghosts. Only in my shitty past do they still live. I don’t like remembering then, but it’s how my head works.
Rest in peace Chris. Loved your voice, loved your music. You helped keep me alive once.
I know Taylor has no idea who I am, but I just want her to know how big of a role she’s played in my life???!! Like, I remember dancing around my bedroom and my friends’ bedrooms singing Our Song and Tim McGraw. I remember learning how to play Love Story on the guitar. THE VERY FIRST SONG I EVER LEARNED TO PLAY. I sang Long Live at my high school graduation, I cried and cried listening to All Too Well after breaking up with my boyfriend of 4 years. I remember blasting Shake It Off in the van on the way to cross country practice in college with my whole team and dancing like an idiot. And this year, I’ve been through another heartbreak and the only song I could listen to for a while was Look What You Made Me Do. IT WAS SO EMPOWERING TO ME AND GOT ME THROUGH SOME SHIT.
@taylorswift if you somehow read this, THANK YOU. I love you. I wish I could hug you and tell you in person that you mean the world to me. I owe you so much.
Songs that remid me of them. Oh boy. This is gonna be a long list xD. In order of importance. Not all will be shippy because well most of the songs have a certain component of girl being well. Not British if you know what I mean so yeah finding songs for them is complicated xD.
One Republic - Secrets.OK so I am putting this because of the scene with Tesla Coils in Sorcerer’s Apprentice, sue me xD
Still, notable lyrics (kinda):
I need another story Something to get off my chest My life gets kinda boring Need something that I can confess Til’ all my sleeves are stained red From all the truth that I’ve said Come by it honestly I swear Thought you saw me wink, no I’ve been on the brink, so
If there’s a prize for rotten judgement, I guess I’ve already won that No man is worth the aggravation That’s ancient history, been there, done thatWho d'you think you’re kidding He’s the earth and heaven to you Try to keep it hidden, Honey we can see right through you Girl you can’t conceal it We know how you’re feeling Who you thinking of
Your cruel device Your blood, like ice One look could kill My pain, your thrill
I want to love you but I better not touch (don’t touch) I want to hold you but my senses tell me to stop I want to kiss you but I want it too much (too much) I want to taste you but your lips are venomous poison You’re poison running through my veins You’re poison, I don’t want to break these chains
Within Temptation - Whole World is Watching Sadly Sharon is the type who writes songs that could go better for other ships but I can’t skip her from this list OK? And anyway this maybe isn’t shippy but it does sound like them so yeah
You build your walls then break them away ‘cause that is what it takes. You saved yourself. You found who you are. That never goes away. And I know you wish for more, and I know you try. And now you realize, you know the time is right.
