Friday Five :: Songs about home

Friday Five :: Songs about home

Home is something that I’ve spent my life searching for, but rarely found. Not that I haven’t lived in many places, the home I grew up in, my Grandparents’ home, my first apartment, subsequent apartments to follow, a house in Salt Lake City, a house in Michigan, a shared tiny space in Chicago, to the house I live in now, and a few in-between, but most have not felt like home to me. My restless, gypsy spirit lights fires in my insides that urges me to keep moving, to keep searching, to keep changing, and most days I follow it. The only problem is, the constant search keeps me in an state of limbo that I can never feel settled within. If I am always in that self-created “purgatory”, ever waiting for a goal to be accomplished, or a destination reached, only to create a new one, then how can I ever find the feeling of home I seek?

Friday Five :: Songs about the road

Songs about the road The road has always been full of allure and mystery and dreams to me. Born with a gypsy soul, one I like to say I inherited from my Grandfather, I have always been fascinated with trips in cars as a child, and as an adult, road trips with friends and family. I love driving. The hideous Los Angeles traffic has yet to lessen that love; I’m not sure anything could. There is nothing quite like driving with the windows down and the music playing loud. Besides standing by the ocean, there is nothing that makes me … Continue reading Friday Five :: Songs about the road

Friday Five :: Songs about Ghosts

Songs about Ghosts For the month of October I am taking a break from songs about cities (the theme will be back in November – I have a lot more cities to play music for), and concentrating on the theme of the month here at lyriquediscorde, and that is of “Spooky October“. This Friday’s first “Spooky October” theme is ghosts, specifically songs about ghosts. I am never quite sure if I believe in ghosts completely, at least not in the horror story sort of way, but I have felt the presence of people who have left this world before, people … Continue reading Friday Five :: Songs about Ghosts

Friday Five :: Songs about Chicago

Songs About Chicago For the month of September I will be picking a city to do a Top 5 Songs of Post for the weekly Friday Five theme. The third installment is a city that is full of mixed feelings and bittersweet memories for me, a city that I tried and failed to live in twice, a city where I fell out of love and in love, made some significant mistakes, had incredible times with friends, and grew incredibly attached to the trains and one little dive bar with the best jukebox I’ve ever encountered. I will get back there someday, … Continue reading Friday Five :: Songs about Chicago

Friday Five :: Songs about Los Angeles

Songs About Los Angeles For the month of September I will be picking a city to do a Top 5 Songs of Post for the weekly Friday Five theme. To start off with, of course, my hometown, place of my birth, and place I always find myself back in no matter how many times I try to leave, Los Angeles. The city of angels, of broken dreams, of Hollywoodland, of tinsel and stars on the sidewalk, and maps to the stars handed out by the homeless, and of mountains and oceans and palm trees, and yes, really nice weather (except … Continue reading Friday Five :: Songs about Los Angeles
