On loving lyrics.

Published May 16, 2012 by mandileighbean

“And if I only could make a deal with God, I’d get Him to swap our places.”

That lyric is from the song “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush, although Placebo sings the version I more commonly rock out to. I don’t exactly know what it is about the song that makes me listen to it for days on end, but I have a strong suspicion it has a lot to do with that one lyric. It is brief but powerful, and could be applied to a million different lives in a million different ways.

  • There are so many lyrics that stick with me, but tonight I’ve got Bowie on the brain.
    “Don’t let me hear you say life’s taking you nowhere, angel. Come, get up my baby. Look at that sky, life’s begun. Nights are warm and the days are young.”

  • This one is called “Golden Years.” He’s got a few songs from his “plastic soul” period that really hit home. He questioned the American Dream and illuminated the reality. He was onto something-even though he’s a Brit.
