[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Kerli’s Feral Hearts

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

 

Welcome back to another episode of Reckless Beats~ I had a rather interesting “musical” week about two weeks ago, where me and a mate of mine went through our old collection of artists and CDs, albums, and the like and just… reminisced.

Then, because we’re freaks like that, we went and caught up on some of these old favourite bands and artists and found out what some of them are doing now, if they’re still bands or making music anymore, what music we’ve been missing out on — y’know. The works.

One artist I found myself back into again is Kerli (full name: Kerli Kõiv). I really loved her music and her sound from her very first hits like Love Is Dead and Walking On Air. Her first album Love Is Dead is – hands down – my favourite album of hers with other much beloved tracks such as Creepshow, Bulletproof, Up Up Up, Strange Boy, Butterfly Cry, Hurt Me, Fragile, and Beautiful Day (btw that’s basically the whole album there asdfghjkl; i didn’t even realize 8D;;; )

Learning that she’s still making music was probably the best part of my week.

So in light of that, I’ve decided to share with you a couple songs I’m particularly jamming out to. (On repeat, like the music freak I am~~)

First up is: Build The Cities by Karma Fields (feat. Kerli)

 

Second up: Build The Cities (Empire of Sound) by Tristam, Karma Fields, and Kerli

 

Lastly: Feral Hearts by Kerli

LYRICS FOR FERAL HEARTS:

The whole world trying, to tame the spark
But we’ve got fire, burning bright, hidden
Catch the shimmer of showering stars
The sky gets dimmer, and your light shows

You are the vision I’m looking for (looking for)
Make me remember all I forgot
Watch me become just an animal
Naked to nothing more than who we are

Feral hearts, in the night
Loving like we’ve been kept captive
Free to light
Feral hearts, come alive
Loving like we’ve been kept captive
Free to…
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Feral, feral, feral hearts
Feral, feral, feral hearts
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Feral, feral, feral hearts
Feral, feral, feral hearts

The whole world trying to blind the way home
But we’ve got shelter, deep inside, secret
Tame the whispers of winds as they blow
Feel my shivers in your arms stop

You are the vision I’m looking for (looking for)
Make me remember all I forgot
Watch me become just an animal
Naked to nothing more than who we are

Feral hearts, in the night
Loving like we’ve been kept captive
Free to light
Feral hearts, come alive
Loving like we’ve been kept captive
Free to…
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Feral, feral, feral hearts
Feral, feral, feral hearts
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Feral, feral, feral hearts
Feral, feral, feral hearts

[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Throwback To The Past – Songs Former Emo Kids Will Always Remember

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

 

Hey guys! Happy Monday!

477551

*insert long groan*

Sorry I’ve been so MIA lately, but when all is said and done, I’ll reveal what’s literally taking over my life so much recently. Got A LOT of good things going on right now, and it’s hectic, but so worthwhile. Honestly, I can’t wait to let you all in on the news.🙂

But back to today’s LONG OVERDUE music post!

A couple weeks ago I saw this video floating around on Facebook that literally had me both annoyed and completely in the zone when I heard it.

Whoever made it named it – and I quote – “Songs FORMER Emo Kids Will Always Remember” and I thought, “What fuckery is this? What do you mean ‘FORMER emo kids’??? What do you mean ’emo’ kids at all?! Are you really trying to tell me that just regular kids didn’t listen to and know this music?! Are you kidding me right now?”

So I’m both annoyed and belting out the lyrics to every song because I know AND STILL LISTEN TO all of these songs whenever the mood gets me.

What about you? If you grew up in the 80’s – 90’s- 00’s you should know these songs, or at least heard them before even if you didn’t like ’em or know ’em.

So what do you think? LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS.

Do you consider this music to be “emo”? Did you ever or do you still listen to any of these songs? Do you remember the lyrics? Have any fond memories of doing stupid shit to them or just wailing them in the car going to or coming home from school?

HOW MANY OF YOU CAN NAME THEM ALL?

LET ME HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS!

I’m super curious.😉

For My Writers Out There, Handy Microsoft Word Shortkeys

Hullo, fellow bloggers, readers, writers, and passersby!

Found this neat little graphic with helpful shortcut keys for Microsoft Word (and, like, everything intarwebs, too…)

Note of point — I won’t lie, I haven’t checked all of these yet, and – of course – if you’ve already customized any of these in your own program, then they won’t work… but yeah. So long as everything is still in the preset function, you’re good to go.

Definitely gonna check these out later tonight and make sure no one fucked up the chart though. (But from what I can see, it all looks good.)

Let me know if this chart is missing anything! I’ll try to edit it and add ’em in. (Also if anybody sees a mistake before I do, lemme know that too! )

Has this been done?

DOES ANYONE KNOW WHERE I CAN READ THIS AND GET A GOOD LAUGH?

ANYONE?

And if no one’s written it yet, who’s looking to do so?

[Reckless Beat & SOTD] Soundgarden – Black Hole Sun

RECKLESS BEATS is a musical feature where I incorporate a little music into this bookish blog.

 

I only just noticed we’ve got two songs in a row talking about black suns and how things aren’t going so well lately. Aha, I don’t know if that’s supposed to be some kind of sign or something, but I’m going to pretend NOT to look too closely into that and just enjoy the music.😄

Hopefully y’all are Soundgarden fans. If not, then you’re sure to become one with this classic hit!

Either way, give it a listen:

Here’s Soundgardens‘s song Black Hole Sun!

LYRICS:

In my eyes, indisposed
In disguises no one knows
Hides the face, lies the snake
The sun in my disgrace
Boiling heat, summer stench
‘Neath the black the sky looks dead
Call my name through the cream
And I’ll hear you scream again

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (Won’t you come)

Stuttering, cold and damp
Steal the warm wind tired friend
Times are gone for honest men
And sometimes far too long for snakes
In my shoes, a walking sleep
And my youth I pray to keep
Heaven sent hell away
No one sings like you anymore

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)

Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)

Hang my head, drown my fear
Till you all just disappear

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

Black hole sun
Won’t you come
And wash away the rain
Black hole sun
Won’t you come
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come (Black hole sun, Black hole sun)
Won’t you come
Won’t you come

End to Another Unannounced Hiatus!!

Whoops! So I didn’t mean to literally disappear for weeks, but I’ve had RL taking over with a vengeance.

In the last month, I’ve been to five different funerals for five different friends. And ALL FOR GRANDMOTHERS. (Watch out, folks! It might be an epidemic!) I swear, if all of mine weren’t already gone (Rest in peace grandmammies. <3) ) I’d legit be worried right about now.

Uh3HB12

At any rate (and besides how I feel on the INSIDE), I think all of the death and sadness and mourning is more or less over (good grief, its gotta be!) So I’m back now! I’ll be starting off with some book reviews and maybe a few features that have caught my attention recently.

And as usual, our weekly scheduled Reckless Beats on Mondays as per usual. Since yesterday was the funeral for yet another dear sweet grandmother, this week’s Reckless Beats will be a little somber to reflect that.

Expect your weekly dose of music in a couple hours when I can get away from work.❤
