well it's not really lyrics but u no


A deleted song from Lord of the Rings

This song, Use Well the Days, was written for the ROTK end credits. You won’t find it anywhere in the soundtrack- It was cut after Into the West took its place. (this recording may not be the “final draft” of the song, either.) Just like Into the West, it was composed by Howard Shore and sung by Annie Lennox, with lyrics by Fran Walsh.

Use Well the Days is about Frodo bidding his final farewell to Sam…. thanking him, blessing him, and hoping the rest of his life in Middle Earth will be happy and peaceful.

More Fun Arctic Monkeys Facts

  • and this cover compilation is also very nice indeed
  • jamie cook used to work as a tiler even when he was still in the band
  • matt is also a dj he’s very very cool like that
  • matt’s tour diaries are essential viewing
  • oh yeah and alex’s short story A Choice of Three which is really good
  • al contibuted to the Mini Mansions song Vertigo and it’s awful but his verse is weirdly mesmerising. but the rest of it is really bad, als part is from 1:29 to 2:15 so u can ignore the rest
  • honestly one of the coolest and my most favourite bands please enjoy your journey

I’m only a man with a candle to guide me,
I’m taking a stand to escape what’s inside me.
A monster, a monster,
I’ve turned into a monster,
A monster, a monster,
And it keeps getting stronger.

hi hi i'm a new baby gay and I'm also a new bts stan and like I'm curious about hyyh (did I get that abbreviation right?) and Blood Sweat And Tears, like how are they gay? also people say the lie choreography is really gay as well and I need answers if you have them? i'm a baby gay with a thirst for knowledge help pls

alright well for hyyh everyone says its gay cuz……..it was really gay. like go watch the inu and run videos thats pretty self explanatory. and like every thing else was too like photoshoots, the yoongi/jk storyline, like. gay. and youre gonna also wanna look up lyrics to songs too. cuz also gay. for bst like. watch the video and read the lyrics enough said. and for jimin’s lie choreo also gay. tho u should go watch a fancam of it too like. most of these iconic gay things are so iconic bc the gayness is very self explanatory

The interview for The Fader Magazine really broke my heart, once i read it i could not only understand but also feel what After Laughter is, I understand when some fans say they didn’t dig the new album because of how it sounds different from the oldest ones, but this is because its not the same band, it is a new Paramore as well, and dude honestly the album could not be more Paramore if u know what I mean… Only the ones who are really interested in understanding their point of view and everything they went through are capable to love this album with their full hearts, specially when u can relate to the lyrics. They did an amazing job and anyone who reads and understands this interview knows why.

chris talk to me abt humbug

I don’t know what to say about humbug really, idk. its just such a great album, its actually my favorite album from the band. its so amazing, how they got that sort of indie or whatever garage rock sound from the first albums and then they chance so much into this kinda dark, stoner, slower and sexy sound. i wonder how many bands can do that. tis incredible. they were getting so much hype with their first albums but they take thier chances and they get away from the comfortable zone, and try to experiment and get better and do something else and not be another boring indie band. it samazing. i love the whole album its jsut 10 songs, but they fit so good, from the sexy ones liek my properller, potion approaching or dangeros animas, to the romanctic ones liek fire and the thud and cornerstone to the misterious ones like dance little liar or the jewellers hands. its perfect. the opener my propeller god, its an amazin way to opent he album like with a totally different style from the last two albums still soo catchy and badass, its like atotally “look here we are, i bet u didn’t expect this u little shit” and its soo perfect, and then it close the album with the monumental outro of the jewellers hands and it leaves u with a feeling like u can’t believe what u heard. the whole album damn. alex voice in THIS ALBUM its like the breaking point from his voice, since this one his voice gets soo good, and i love the album bc you can totally sense how important nick started to be here, well he was important in fwn too but u get me. his bass breaks so many asses here shit. and the whole album its pretty weird, shit, i love it. AND DONT MAKE ME TALK ABOUT THE LYRICS, one of the best al works are here, so misterious and twisted words. they’re pieces of art. jfc. and well the era was so amazing, with their long hairs and beards, they get away from that teenager english boys style and it freaks out so much, i love them. always changing, playing their own game, not the one the fans or th epress wants, shit. and the live perfomance was soo tight and everything was really well planned. that was the first time they played with a fifth member, u don’t understnad how important josh ashton was for the band. it was amazing. and the acoustic man, the acoustic. they progressed so much with that since 2009. and let me tell you this era was one fo the peeks of alex carreer when it comes to compose songs, he had so many, they said they had like 25 songs from the sessions we only get to hear 18 tho ugh. but still. god bless humbug and good bless josh homme. THIS WAS THE ALBUM AND THE ERA THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING. the monkeys wouldn’t be what they are right now if it wasn’t for this. im as proud of this album as the guys from the band are. 

anonymous asked:

I was thinking about something and you seem like a chill person so I want your opinion: why do you think BTS is so popular. I love BTS so much but I was just thinking about this, sorry if you don't answer it's okay!

OOOH !! That’s  a great question !!! I actually already talked about this with a friend. So I’ll tell my opinion :^DD

 I won’t say « it’s because they do good music/ write great lyrics » because it’s obvious. I mean if their music wasn’t good they wouldn’t be popular. And I also think that the HYYH era is for something but yknow i won’t talk about this. But I think why anon asked this is because a lot of groups also work hard and do good music but still struggle to have a good fanbase.

 Ok so I think it’s thanks to * tadadadaddada * the bangtan bombs.

 When you listened to their music for the first time, what did  you do just after that ? You watched a bangtan bomb. Everyone did that like its one of the first thing people do. Bangtan bombs are great because its short and you can easily know them, that’s why I think the bangtan bombs are for something, tbh  it’s just genius. Like I said it’s really easy to know the members after watching some BB, you learn their names in maybe 1 day or something and you can know more about them in a few days. With other groups it’s more complicated. You need to search on google, there’s not a lot of interviews or just videos about them soi t takes some time to actually know them. So for some groups you just listen to the album and then you stop searching about them and that’s it. But with the BB it’s really easy, and we all want to know them better and we can do that in 1,2 days. Since we know them quickly, we want to learn more and more and bam welcome in bangtan hell.  They become our friends or our brothers, we become attached to them, we enjoy to see their daily life, like we are a part of it. And more and more groups understood that, I can think about seventeen or ikon who did shows even before they debuted, I was a 17 and ikon fan even before their debut and I’m not the only one. So with their talent, the HYYh era and the bb they did a great combo.

 Plus I think this is why there’s more and more rude « armys ». Because some of us like bts not really for their talent but for them. When someone talks shit about BTS it’s like they insulted a family member. I think that’s also why a lot of « armys » hate some members. Because they dislike their personalities that’s all. And like I said some of them like BTS only for their looks/personalities. So they really don’t care if Jin has an amazing vocal or if Namjoon is just a genius at writing lyrics, they just dislike them. That’s pretty sad but well we can’t do shit about this.

literally tr*ye has the most meaningful songs. ppl sometimes get bothered by "lovey dovey" songs, bc they never rlly look into the lyrics. like i was scrolling down my dash and saw u explaining his songs to people, and the more people put their input on it, the more you realize how much passion and consideration was put into the song.. but then people just diss it because it's "love". idk, i just needed to rant on that topic and u seem like a perfect person to rant to lol. okAy bYE THX 4 UR TIME

I really respect Troye as a lyricist, honestly I think it’s his greatest talent. His songs hold so much deeper meaning, as well as clever word play or metaphors, and an elegance in the way the lines are delivered. The more you listen to his music, the more you find lines that make stop and think “damn that was smooth”

anonymous asked:

Okay I can't stop thinking bout this: you know how alex plays guitar well the strings have probably formed callouses on his fingers so imagine it's super late and u and Al are watching a cheesy Netflix movie and are cuddling super close and he's tracing his rough fingers up and down ur legs and ur heAds on his shoulder and he's just whispering future song lyrics not really paying attention to the movie and you look up to find him staring at you as he's humming-but yeah sigh he's taking over me

me falling to my death because i can’t with what you;re sAYING x
