I got 50 bucks that says contemporary triumphs Old School in music. Up it up, make it a 100. Oh, wait, a thousand bucks on Old School. Geez, I don’t know!
I do know that musicians and poets often grapple with simple truths about love, sharing heart and…Okay, I think I’m catching feelings now.
The songs, yeah. Here, go wild!
Sir Elton John
Can You Feel The Love Tonight.
Take note of the Sir there. Guy was knighted for real, yeah! With those lyrics up there, if you don’t get why he was knighted then it’s no wonder you haven’t been knighted yourself.
Fascinating that, with just a mallet of words, guy has made a career breaking onto people’s hearts.
Martha & The Vandellas
My father once told me that this song is a Time Machine. Since then I’ve never asked him how he won over my mum’s heart.
So hard to read the lyrics, isn’t it? What was that about poison again?
Kiss From A Rose.
Not impressed? Don’t really care! Will go with Heidi Klum‘s judgment on this.
Black Eyed Peas
Just Can’t Get Enough
Don’t Fall In Love With A Dreamer.
The Simple Truths expert!
It’s Ed Sheeran who wrote this song but the delivery was equally impeccable, wasn’t it?
Thinking Out Loud.
It’s okay for guys to listen to this song. Just plug in your earphones. You’ll have to consult your doctor to tip you on how you can curb the seemingly inexorable temptation to sing along with your friends watching. Yeah, we all know that you know the lyrics.
Big Sean (In Justin Bieber’s Song)
As Long As You Love Me.
Confuse and Conquer. I’m not sure about the former.
Take Me To Church.
Ironic that it’s the Christians who are likely to appreciate the lyrics more. The wordplay there is clearly on drugs. I have an idea: let’s start a theory that Hozier is on earth as a visitor!
Anyway, write the names and lyrics of any songs that flip your lid.
