Day 2: Blogher’s National Blog Posting Month #NaBloPoMo

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014

Today’s gift:  Music! In all its glorious, inspiring, contagious forms.

We are a music family — we love to listen, play, dance.  And we all have different tastes and preferences.

It’s fun to discover new tunes and since the last two movies I watched have great soundtracks — for dancing and singing along –and great narratives, I’m sharing them here as today’s blog post gifts.  Thanks to the brilliance and ease of Spotify, I can find new songs or soundtracks in a click or two.

CHEF is a savory story about family, food, and passion.

BEGIN AGAIN is a delightful romantic film (by the creator of Once) about life lessons, love, and self-discovery.

I won’t reveal too much more — just to say that both films will elevate, inspire, and hopefully ignite something in you to really stop and listen — to the music, real or imagined, and to the soundtrack of your life.  There is great joy when a tune speaks to your soul.

Happy Listening!

LOST STAR lyrics from the film Begin, Again

Please, don’t see
Just a boy caught up in dreams
And fantasies

Please, see me
Reaching out for someone
I can’t see

Take my hand
Let’s see where we wake up tomorrow
Best laid plans
Sometimes are just a one night stand

I’ll be damned
Cupid’s demanding back it’s arrow
So let’s get drunk on our tears

And God, tell us the reason
Youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season
And the lambs are on the run

Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark

Who are we?
Just a speck of dust
Within the galaxy?

Woe, is me
If we’re not careful
Turns into reality

But don’t you dare
Let our best memories bring you sorrow
Yesterday I saw a lion kiss a deer
Turn the page
Maybe we’ll find a brand new ending
Where we’re dancing in our tears

And God, tell us the reason
Youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season
And the lambs are on the run

We’re searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark

I thought I saw you out there crying
I thought I heard you call my name
I thought I heard you out there crying
But just the same

And God, give us the reason
Youth is wasted on the young
It’s hunting season
And this lamb is on the run

Searching for meaning
But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark

I thought I saw you out there crying
I thought I heard you call my name
I thought I heard you out there crying

But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark

But are we all lost stars
Trying to light up the dark
