Quotes, thoughts

by on Apr.14, 2004, under General

I know some people don’t like Meat Loaf’s music, but I’m sorry, Bat out of Hell II (lyrics link) was a pretty good CD, and I like the album. But, that’s me, and I don’t care whether people hate or like his music – I enjoy some of it (keep in mind, only some). Some of the lyrics in Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through which I was listening to I found interesting, and thought I’d post them, courtesy of Lyricsfreak.com: Keep in mind, this is one example, and not maybe what was intended by the song, but some phrases you can’t help but notice.

  • You cant run away forever
    But theres nothing wrong with getting a good head start
  • Youve been through the fires of hell
    And I know youve got the ashes to prove it
  • Youre never alone cause you can put on the phones
    And let the drummer tell your heart what to do

There’s some thoughts there, in that music for me is an escape, and how often when I’m struggling with thoughts or when stuff is going on in my head, I turn to music. I “put on the phones” and let my mind go with the music. Some days its really hard industrial (usually when I’m really upset or pissed off at something), other days, it’s light rock, some days, jazz, some days, just any kind of rock. I think Jenni Melcher said it once, that “if I could add anything to my life, it would be a constant soundtrack”. Something along those lines (pardon Jenni for butchering that!). Anyways, I feel like that – that I wish I could have music playing nearly every minute of the day, because music, of any type, almost always affects me, and is often what I turn to when life is hard.
