Real Music Thursday

Today’s Real Music Thursday comes Canadian singer Feist and it’s called “The Limit to Your Love.”   The only song by Feist that I knew of was that “1234” song from the Apple commercials.

This song showed up in my YouTube suggestions because another artist I was listening to covered this song and I decided to click on it.  I’m glad that I did.   It’s a very bittersweet love song.  Sit back and quietly listen to the lyrics.

Oddly enough, this song was covered by British singer James Blake.  He put a dubstep beat over it and it’s been sampled by a few rappers now.

Hello Readers,

As you know, Mocha Pikachu is in the process of buying a house.  I’ve been quietly telling myself for over a year that it’s time to have a little something to call my own.   I’m tired of apartment living and the rent increases and the thin walls and the crazy ass neighbors.

Now that ball is rolling, I’m freaking the hell out on the inside. I’m not a fan of debt, but I’m also not a Rockefeller, so mortgage debt will be a part of my life.

I’ve had a few sleepless nights wondering if this is the right thing or is everything going to pull together in time.

So today’s song is Colin Hay’s Overkill.  The lyrics especially speak to me during this stressful time. Trying to imagine every scenario in a situation is normally what I do.  It’s just something that introverts do.  However, in this situation, my imagination is getting the best of me.  It’s overkill and I need to reel it in.

I can’t get to sleep
I think about the implications
Of diving into deep 
And possibly the complications…

Real Music Thursday. I’m only a day late!

Hello Readers,

The Mocha Pikachu has caught a cold in the middle of summer in the middle of a damn heat wave.  I think the today’s temperature with the heat index is 113.

Today’s Real Music Thursday has been submitted by my friend Adam.   The song is a lovely duet between the late, great Donny Hathaway and Roberta Flack called “Be Real Black for Me.”  Donny is his favorite singer.

It’s a very simple, smooth love song about lovers that just want to enjoy each other in all of their realness.  “Lips, warm and luscious….hair, soft and crinkly.”

Kings of Leon – Closer.  I absolutely love this song.   It’s so haunting.   It’s perfect for driving at night.

I wonder why they didn’t release this song as single.
