Dixie Chicks ~ "I Hope" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
~ Emily Dickinson

This post is going to focus on music which I heard on my way home from work this evening. It’s a brilliant piece by my Texas home girls the Dixie Chicks.

The song titled "I Hope" was initially introduce in October of 2005 by the group as a single and later from their album “Taking the Long Way” which was release in 2006. The song is considered to be “Blue-Eyed Soul” or for better words it’s a country genre.

The video which has a good sound was uploaded on YouTube by Rose Alvaro and published on Aug 29, 2011.

I love this soulful country tune and I highly recommend it… It is just brilliant!

"I Hope"
Sunday morning, I heard the preacher say
Thou shall not kill
I don't wanna hear nothing else about killing
And that it's God's will

'Cause our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They're gonna be like us
So let's learn from our history
And do it differently

I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, we'll have more than we'll ever need
I hope, we'll have more happy ever after
I hope, we can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

Oh, Rosie, her man he gets too rough
That's all she can say, is he's a good man
He don't mean no harm
He was just brought up that way

But our children are watching us
They put their trust in us
They're gonna be like us
It's okay for us to disagree
We can work it out lovingly

I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, you'll have more than we'll ever need
I hope, you'll have more happy ever after
I hope, you can all live more fearlessly
And you can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

There must be a way to change what's going on
No I don't have all the answers

I hope, for more love, more joy and laughter
I hope, we'll have more than we'll ever need
I hope, we'll have more happy ever after
I hope, we can all live more fearlessly
And we can lose all the pain and misery
I hope, I hope

I hope, I hope, I hope

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton

Facing West & Cody Lovaas "Don't Let Me Down" #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
The only way that we can live, is if we grow. The only way that we can grow is if we change. The only way that we can change is if we learn. The only way we can learn is if we are exposed. And the only way that we can become exposed is if we throw ourselves out into the open. Do it. Throw yourself.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

This post is going to focus on a group of young singers who kindly followed me on twitter. They are fresh, unique with an exceptional collaboration. I loved the featured video straight up and have become an instant fan of all the artists discussed below. 

So, first let me give you a little background.

The song was initially introduce in February 2016 by the group that goes by The Chainsmokers and it features vocals from Daya. They are an American DJ duo, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, from New York City proper. I loved their video that was published on YouTube by ChainsmokersVEVO in April with the title "Don't Let Me Down". It is energetic, entertaining and I highly recommend it. This song has peaked at No. 5 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100, becoming the groups highest charting single to date in the U.S.

Now let’s talk about my featured guests Cody Lovaas and Facing West reintroducing this song with a sultry, folk sound which is just brilliant.

Cody Lovaas is a singer-songwriter, surfer from Carlsbad, California with a distinctive bravura timbre which is laid back almost folk, somewhat of an earthy soulful jazz sound. Now this is strictly my opinion and I highly recommend one of his videos titled “Take a Ride” on YouTube published by Cody Lovaas 2014:

Facing West two gorgeous and very talented young women from Denver, Colorado that are actually a sister group, Caitlin and Sidney. Both aspiring singer/songwriters with a novel upbeat country pitch, have a channel on YouTube I would recommend a look see: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQJ-a2IzCJ-gwlHvqvOWGhw

 Now the let me introduce the video that has captured my attention. The title is “The Chainsmokers ft Daya - Don't Let Me Down - by Facing West & Cody Lovaas”. It was uploaded on YouTube by Facing West Music and published last week (Jun 3, 2016).

I love the soulful simple twist and I highly recommend it… It is just brilliant!

"Don’t Let Me Down"
Crashing, hit a wall
Right now I need a miracle
Hurry up now, I need a miracle
Stranded, reaching out
I call your name but you're not around
I say your name but you're not around

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
D-Don't let me down

Don't let me down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down

Running out of time
I really thought you were on my side
But now there's nobody by my side

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
D-Don't let me down

Don't let me down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, down, down
Don't let me down, don't let me down, down, down

Oh, I think I'm losing my mind now, yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, I think I'm losing my mind now, yeah, yeah

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
I think I'm losing my mind now
It's in my head, darling I hope
That you'll be here, when I need you the most
So don't let me, don't let me, don't let me down
Don't let me down

Yeah, don't let me down

P!nk - Glitter In The Air #Musicvideo #DianaMarySharpton

Introduction:
She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river of blood.

She only looked away for a moment, and the mask slipped, and you fell. All your tomorrows start here.” ~ Neil Gaiman

Okay so I started back at the gym. No more excuses are going to be allowed, btw, I need everyone’s help to keep me committed. 

My featured artist this evening is the sexy Alecia Beth Moore (stage name) ~ P!nk from the great state of Georgia, USA. She is fresh, sensual and a true artist. Her music is typically considered a Pop, rock, R&B and folk genre. The song is titled “Glitter In The Air”. It was uploaded on YouTube by PinkVEVO and published on Feb 2, 2010. It is a sexy video and I highly recommend it…

" Glitter In The Air"
Have you ever fed a lover with just your hands?
Close your eyes and trust it, just trust it
Have you ever thrown a fist full of glitter in the air?
Have you ever looked fear in the face
And said I just don't care?

And it's only half past the point of no return
The tip of the iceberg
The sun before the burn
The thunder before the lightning
Breath before the phrase
Have you ever felt this way?

Have you ever hated yourself for staring at the phone?
You're whole life waiting on the ring to prove you're not alone
Have you ever been touched so gently you had to cry?
Have you ever invited a stranger to come inside?

It's only half past the point of oblivion
The hourglass on the table
The walk before the run
The breath before the kiss
And the fear before the flames
Have you ever felt this way?

La la la la la la la la

There you are, sitting in the garden
Clutching my coffee,
Calling me sugar
You called me sugar

Have you ever wished for an endless night?
Lassoed the moon and the stars and pulled that rope tight
Have you ever held your breath and asked yourself
Will it ever get better than tonight?
Tonight

I hope you like this selection as much as I do and have a blessed evening or morning. Thank you for your continued support. Remember music is a language and these are my thoughts tonight.

Peace and Love always
Diana Mary Sharpton
I want that moonlit night with you again Sugar… soon xxx
