Imagine there’s no heaven, it’s easy if you try

No people below us, above it’s only sky

Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there’s no countries, it isn’t hard to do
No need to kill or die for and no religions too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one
[From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/j/john-lennon-lyrics/imagine-lyrics.html%5D

Imagine no possessions I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger a brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing for the world

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
Take my hand and join us
And the world will live, will live as one

Artist Of The Week: The Black Keys

Standard

The Black Keys is a quite well known band, that has a grungy, garage sound, and is very bluesy as well. They have a few songs that are known such as; Lonely Boy, Howlin for You, Gold On The Ceiling, and Tighten Up. Lonely Boy is a work of art, happy and jumpy. Gold On The Ceiling is more of a catchy tune, and Howlin For You is simply s perfect sing along song when it comes to the chorus.

Here are the links to the songs!

Artist Of The Week: MGMT

Standard

The band MGMT, is one I have recently discovered, and wish i had known of it, much longer ago. The intro’s to their songs, get me pumped up right away. They make me smile, and become a dreamer for a joyous few minutes. Even though many of their songs have to do with drugs and being lazy, they are still pure genius. My favorites of their’s include; “Time To Pretend”, “Kids”, and “Electric Feel”. The links to their songs are below:

Artist Of The Week: The Joy Formidable

Standard

I cannot even begin to describe my love for this band. The Joy Formidable is one of the most amazing bands I have had the pleasure of listening to. Every single one of their songs is pure genius! I absolutely cannot get enough of their song “Endtapes”. Endtapes is a song on the soundtrack of Twilight; Breaking Dawn. This song is just so pure, I can feel it reach into my soul, it makes me want to jump and dance every time I hear it. Another few of my favorites include “Whirring”, “Austere”, “I Don’t Want To See You Like This”, and “A Heavy Abacus”. Please give these links a listening to!!
