Living a half-hour to an hour away from everything has never been a big inconvenience to me. Sure, rising a couple hours earlier can be annoying, but I’ve always been a morning person. My morning commutes are often made accompanied with a soundtrack of some sort, whether I’m shuffling through my collection or satisfying a certain aural craving.

Sometimes, those aural cravings become an aural gluttony. I’ll press the ‘back’ button until I realize that I just want to hear one song and change the settings, and then turn on my autopilot and let a story or poem germinate.

This is one such poem, based on Oasis’s “Champagne Supernova”. Lyrics appear in italics, and I credit the band’s beautiful songwriting and balancing of sounds for sparking my creativity. Enjoy!

Does anyone else have those moments where, you’re driving along, and a song begins to play, and as it’s playing, you start to get chills, and then you have to listen to that song on repeat until you reach your destination?

I had one of those moments with this song today.  I let the CD continue playing when this came on, and I listened, and listened… and then one thing lead to another, and by then I was totally in love with it.

Enjoy!!

Here in the North Carolina boonies, autumn is just getting started.  The poplar trees that surround my home are changing their leaves to yellow and dropping them.  The reds, yellows, oranges, and browns blend together as I drive into Winston or elsewhere.  There’s an overall feeling of contentment, even with the cold starting.  For some reason, Stabbing Westward’s song “Breathe You In” feels like the perfect song for such a day as this.  Enjoy!!

Today’s song is “Admiration”, by Incubus.  I believe that it sums up a lot of feelings I’ve been having, especially the line “Your eyes are an undiscovered ocean far away/Any minute now keeping /Both poets and priests at bay.”

Enjoy!!

I have designated Nine Inch Nails’s “Hurt” as today’s Song of the Day.  Not because I’m in a depressive mood or anything, but because I believe the killer headache I’ve had since I was waken by dreaming about a plane crash (which turned out to be Thor’s rage that I love Loki) is trying to kill me.

“Come Back” by Foo Fighters is a very autumnal song to me.  Listening to it gives me images of a lake surrounded by leaves turning red and falling to the water, gently floating by.

What do you see (if anything) when you listen to it?

Nine Inch Nails’s “The Perfect Drug” has been one of my favorite songs for years.  Enjoy!!
