Song in My Head: “The Only Conclusion” by Jamie Lawson

leave a comment »

So after seeing Jamie Lawson at the Ryman last night, I have had this song in my head. Now, I will tell you that I had heard of Lawson before hearing him last night. A friend had mentioned him, and I thought “Cool, I’ll have to check him out.” And like an asshole, I did not check him out… Fast-forward to last night, he wowed me with his performance at the Ryman, and needless to say, I had to download his album (self-titled Jamie Lawson… just in case you wanted to know because you should go download it or something).

From his performance, one song stuck in my mind: “The Only Conclusion.” Lawson told the crowd an anecdote about this song. He said that he wrote it after watching an episode of The Big Bang Theory. Long story short, the song is inspired by Sheldon Cooper’s analytical side when it comes to love. This song speaks to me, and I can’t really explain why. However, the line “I think I may have figured out why / Finally found the very reason / For all this confusion the only conclusion is love” really speaks to me. So enjoy the song.

The fact that Jamie Lawson seems a little nerdy and has a lot of fun with the song helps too.

This song is brilliant on so many levels. And because of a rough day, I think that it might be my anthem for tonight. So enjoy. Also, have I mentioned that Lily Allen is my spirit animal?

Songs in My Head: “All I Want” performed by Stevie McCrorie

leave a comment »

Ever since I heard Stevie McCrorie on “The Voice UK,” I fell in love with his voice because of its rawness and sincerity. There’s just something about the way in which he interprets songs that makes me really feel what it is that he is going for if that makes sense to anyone out there in blogland.

His cover of “All I Want,” originally performed by Kodaline, is probably one of my favorites that he does. I hope you enjoy.

Song in My Head: “Letting You Go” by Luke Sital-Singh

leave a comment »

Here’s another song by the really talented Luke Sital-Singh. The one is really intriguing, and I’m still trying to figure out exactly how I understand / read the song (It’s the English major in me).

Here are some of the lyrics that I transcribed from the song:

“Well, it’s been too long. No, it’s been too long, and it’s all my fault this time. I’m a long way back in the distance now, and I don’t know if I’m strong. On the darkest night when I told you lies for a chance I might seem cool, well, the ghosts were there roaming in their underwear, making me look like a fool.

At the breakneck speed of tomorrow, I’m never letting you go. I’m never letting you go. At the heartbreak speed of tomorrow, I’m never letting you go. I’m never letting you go.”

I find his poetry mesmerizing.
