[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

Reference Post: 2016 Releases with Ace Characters

Definitely an important list to add to the watchlist! These all sound like interesting titles with Ace characters that I’m going to be looking forward to reading in this upcoming year~

Just Love: Queer Book Reviews

wordpress blog stats

Following up on my previous post about Asexuality in fiction, I wanted to list upcoming releases with Ace (asexual, gray-ace, demisexual, aromantic, etc) main characters.

This is just a reference list to keep track. If you know of an upcoming novel that features an ace main character, please drop a comment and let me know (and link if possible)! Doesn’t have to be a romance, just as long as one of the main characters falls under the ace umbrella.

Where possible, I have linked to Goodreads (GR) or other relevant post.

In order of (estimated) release date:
