Let's Get Together!

The Hot Mess Life

March 31, 2010

You ever wonder...

Wow, it has been a while!  I have just been so busy! :)
Well, let's get started shall we?
A few weeks ago I went to a John Mayer concert with a great friend.  I do love music ( as previously written about)  so this was a treat since I do love his music.  Maybe not the actual person, but then again I don't know him, just what the tabloids say about him. It was a great concert!  He really didn't play a huge song list, but he did a lot of "jamming", so it was a great concert.  I felt as though I was in a club or bar and not a huge arena.  He played a lot of great songs, a lot of my favorite songs, not just of his, but oldies.  My favorite he saved until the encore and sure enough as soon as I heard those three notes in the beginning I just knew.  (And of course screamed like a schoolgirl). Gravity.  MMMMMmmmmm. Just thinking about it right now makes me happy.
LOS ANGELES, CA - JULY 07:  John Mayer perform...After the concert, my friend brought up a good point.  I wonder what he was going through when he wrote those songs.  Which made me start to think about all singer/songwriters and listen a bit more closely to their lyrics. Which then led me to think of how theses artists give us a window into their lives and their ups and downs.  Yes, I know this is cliche, but if it is the story of their lives and a peek into how their mind works.  So I figure if you follow an artist long enough, you almost feel as though you know that person.  Which is why I think people are touched and moved these artists.
So, maybe from now on, you will take a closer listen to lyrics and not just the music, and realize that the lyrics that make up the songs are a piece of the person that is singing it.  So listen and then appreciate.
