George Michael – This Is How (We Want You To Get High)

 

🎡

Although Geroge Michael is no longer there…, a new song was released three days ago.

LYRIC

So you raise another glass looking for a different space,
I was leaning on the grass dreaming of a sunnier day,
oh it never came, how could it have baby
where the present meets the past it’s hard to be more than we’ve seen

Your daddy was a drinker he just kept drinking til the shit he was thinking sounded true,
Your mama was a thinker she just wasn’t thinking on the day that she looked at him and said I do,

Cause I will always I will always I will always I will always try to get my shit together,
I guess we always guess we always knew, that it would be stormy weather

This is how we want you to get high the way that we showed you the way that we told you was decent
This is how we want you to get high, this is how we want you to get by

My daddy was a toker he just kept smoking til the jokes he could tell got very blue
My mama was a joker if she was a hippy then I guess she was tripping on a high love you

Cause I will always I will always I will always I will always try to get my shit together,
I guess we always guess we always knew, that it would be stormy weather

This is how we want you to get high the way that we showed you the way that we told you was decent
This is how we want you to get high, this is how we want you to get by on your sorry lives
Take another, take another

I never picked a fight in my life or raised a hand to my wife or saw my children as things to bully,
I never dropped a pill in a drink I know how low you can sink my heart my heart is better than that
I never picked a fight in my life or raised a hand to my wife or saw my children as things to bully,
I never dropped a pill in a drink I know how low you can sink my heart, my heart is better than that

Looking for a different space, dreaming of a sunnier day, oh it never came how could it have baby
where the present meets the past it’s hard to be more than we’ve seen, its hard to be more than we’ve seen.

LP – Shaken

 

LYRIC

All night, sippin’ on a feelin’
Won’t lie, was nervous for this evenin’
Then you arrive

Oh god, why you gotta look so
So hot? Remembering your body on mine
I wanna cry

I, I knew that you’d be here tonight
But suddenly I’m paralyzed
Who’s she by your side?

She looks at you like I used to
And I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
I thought only I would get that smile
Now I’m just watching from the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken

Oh no, feelin’ that vertigo
Slow row, feelin’ that swell of desire
Am I on fire?
Flashbacks rolling like a movie
Whiplash, she’s holding you instead of me
Is that your type?

I knew, I knew that you’d be here tonight
But I don’t know how it got so late
Just trying not to catch your eye
(See my face)

She looks at you like I used to
And I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
I thought only I would get that smile
Now I’m just watching from the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken

And it feels like I’m watchin’
Somebody else live my life
Sh-sh-shaken
Yeah, it feels like I’m watchin’
Somebody else live my life
Sh-sh-shaken

It’s just a kiss but they’re not my lips
So I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
You’re leaving now but you turn around
And I try to hold a smile
But I’m just breakin’, b-b-breakin’

She looks at you like I used to
And I’m just sitting in the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken
I thought only I would get that smile
Now I’m just watching from the corner
Sh-sh-shaken, sh-sh-shaken

And it feels like I’m watchin’
Somebody else live my life

Silence does not exist: it is the song of birds!

music
Illustration of Pawel Kuczynski

In the big cities there is no more silence and noise pollution has become daily. We often use music to isolate ourselves from the surrounding world, full of noise and chaos. In fact, in addition to giving emotions (often deriving from its musical genre), music has a therapeutic function.

Many studies have shown that while listening to music, the body increases the production of endorphin, which acts like a morphine in the brain, alleviating depression or anxiety.

Anyway. the best solution to detach ourselves from the chaos of the city would be to get in touch with nature.

But what exactly is silence? Pure silence almost never exists because probably the silence itself is a deafening noise to the solitude of our soul. True silence is when we hear birds singing or how much we hear the sound of crickets or cicadas …

Philosophical crumbs of Tuesday

solitudestreetimg

To be comfortable with others, you need to be comfortable with yourself first. Often the real solitude is not the physical one but the inner one. You can feel alone even if you have friends. In fact you can also have many companies, but if these don’t make you feel good, it’s better to be alone. In fact we often feel bad because the best part of our soul is torn off us while we see our worst side growing inside us. In these cases it is worthwhile to take a period of solitude and reorganize our soul, which can also feel tired of the presence with the everyday world.
The periods of introspection are almost always considered sad and depressing and are not addressed, continuing their hectic life with the illusion that things can improve.

1 November – All Saints Day: history of name-day

allsaintsday

On November 1st, as always, we celebrate the feast of all saints. This day, introduced by Pope Gregory IV, also allows us to celebrate the name day to those who have an adespota name, that is, they have a name that does not appear on the calendar with any Saint.

The name day, as well as the birthday, is celebrated in most countries. But today this tradition has been lost a bit and so often only the birthday is celebrated.

The custom of celebrating the name day derives from the fact that in ancient times, especially in the Middle Ages, when there was still no registry office, people only remembered the dates of the saints with whom they celebrated people.

Today the name day is celebrated mainly in the south and in Latin countries. In northern Italy and in other countries this custom has been lost.

1Β° November – The Birthday Juventus Club

JUVE

Today, November 1st, is the birthday of Juventus. The most successful Italian team in Italy, and one of the best known in the world, is 122 years old.

With the purchase of Cristiano Ronaldo, the reputation of the Club has probably increased. The primary objective remains the victory of the Champions League, which has been lost numerous times in the final …
The coincidence is that on November 1st Umberto Agnelli was born, a well-known sports director of the Agnelli Family.

Tomorrow there will also be a derby with Torino. Instead, Wednesday the first match will be played for the return of the Champions League group.

This year with coach Sarri you still can’t see a good game. Despite Juve being first in the standings, some victories came with difficulty. Furthermore, the draw with Atletico Madrid has again revealed doubts about the defense … It is hoped that the team has planned an athletic preparation to make the best in the second half of the season and that is after the beginning of 2020.

Our libraries: how to choose books

littlelibrary
Small library typical of public places or parks.

How many books do we read? Quantity is probably important but not everything. Quality is often fundamental, and choosing your book to suit your tastes and attitudes is the best way to create a small library of culture.

 

We often read without understanding because they are full of thoughts in our heads or because we don’t read often. It also depends on the genre of books: the most difficult are the intricate stories full of characters (mystery and novels) but also treatises on Philosophy.

If your intent is to have fun and not be too focused on the logic of the book, take a leisure book, I am convinced that the quality of the reading is usually more important than the content.

The length of the book is relative. If the book is very exciting we would like the book to never end. Instead some people prefer to read more books but short ones.
A book that has captured us represents a piece of our soul to be kept both in the library of books and in the library of one’s mind.

πŸŽƒ Halloween 2019

PIC Gabriele Romano – Halloween 2019

While in the Anglo-Saxon world, halloween is celebrated and the pumpkins appear everywhere in the Latin Catholic world, this custom is imitated wearing costumes. I am a little over 30 years old and I remember that in Italy people began to celebrate this event at the beginning of the 2000s, when TV – with American films and cartoons – brought the trick or treat event to people’s homes. Cartoons have been the main influence.

Cartoons (like the simpson) were the main factors that influenced the Catholic world. It is no coincidence that three episodes dedicated to the Simpsons were broadcast on the mediaset ITALIA1 channel.

Today, however, there are many who contest the Anglo-Saxon custom by calling it opposite to the Christian-Catholic culture as well as opposed to the national tradition. However, I believe that with the passing of the years the aversion towards Halloween will diminish, giving it the main party of the disguise. In the last decade in fact the carnival has lost a lot of popularity, especially in the adult public.

🎡 Lewis Capaldi – Bruises

 

LYRIC

Counting days, counting days
Since my love up and got lost on me
And every breath that I’ve been takin’
Since you left feels like a waste on me
I’ve been holding on to hope
That you’ll come back when you can find some peace
‘Cause every word that I’ve heard spoken
Since you left feels like a hollow street
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold ya
You’d keep my head from going under
Maybe I, maybe I’m just being blinded
By the brighter side
Of what we had because it’s over
Well there must be something in the tide
I’ve been told, I’ve been told to get you off my mind
But I hope I never lose the bruises that you left behind
Oh my lord, oh my lord, I need you by my side
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
It’s your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
And I’m tired of being so exhausted
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Your love I’m lost in
Even though I’m nothing to you now
Even though I’m nothing to you now
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under
There must be something in the water
‘Cause everyday it’s getting colder
And if only I could hold you
You’d keep my head from going under

 

🎡 Post Malone – Circles

 

πŸ“»Β A hit of moment…

 

LyrIc

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh
We couldn’t turn around
‘Til we were upside down
I’ll be the bad guy now
But no, I ain’t too proud
I couldn’t be there
Even when I try
You don’t believe it
We do this every time
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
Let go
I got a feeling that it’s time to let go
I say so
I knew that this was doomed from the get-go
You thought that it was special, special
But it was just the sex though, the sex though
And I still hear the echoes (the echoes)
I got a feeling that it’s time to let it go
Let it go
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
Maybe you don’t understand what I’m going through
It’s only me, what you got to lose?
Make up your mind, tell me, what are you gonna do?
It’s only me, let it go
Seasons change and our love went cold
Feed the flame ’cause we can’t let go
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away
I dare you to do something
I’m waiting on you again
So I don’t take the blame
Run away, but we’re running in circles
Run away, run away, run away
