    Default Music + Spirituality

    Do you find an inner journey through music?

    Whether it be through lyrics or the sounds?

    Please share your "spiritual" music:

    I'll get started.



    [Intro]
    Ooh, ooh can we break the spell on this carousel?
    Ooh, ooh

    [Verse 1]
    Play like little kids eating sugar, getting sick, repeat
    I want you, but I don't when the bitter outweighs the sweet

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We get carried away
    At the end of the day, all we have is a memory
    Living technicolor dreams 'til we're bursting at the seams
    And it all just fades to gray


    [Chorus]
    We're breaking up and then we're making up again
    When we go 'round and 'round on this carousel
    We're breaking up and then we're making up again
    When we go 'round and 'round on this carousel
    On this carousel, on this carousel

    [Verse 2]
    Loves me, loves me not, leave the flowers there to rot and die
    You used to look so bright but you took the stars from my eyes

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We get carried away
    At the end of the day, all we have is a memory
    Living technicolor dreams 'til we're bursting at the seams
    And it all just fades to gray

    [Chorus]
    We're breaking up and then we're making up again
    When we go 'round and 'round on this carousel
    We're breaking up and then we're making up again
    When we go 'round and 'round on this carousel
    We're breaking up and then we're making up again
    When we go 'round and 'round on this carousel
    We're breaking up and then we're making up again
    When we go 'round and 'round on this carousel
    On this carousel, on this carousel

    [Outro]
    Ooh, ooh, can we break the spell on this carousel?
    Ooh, ooh, can we break the spell on this carousel?

    With all Due Respect,
    -Jack


    There is an idea of a Gentleman Jack; some kind of abstraction. But there is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable... I simply am not there...

    "The vanity of intelligence is that the intelligent man is often more committed to 'one-upping' his opponent than being truthful. When the idea of intelligence, rather than intelligence itself, becomes a staple, there is no wisdom in it."
    Criss Jami

    Yes, I do. I actually call it a spiritual experience. The best way for me to describe it is it’s like a moment of actually coming alive and finding ‘God.’ I think I’m going to keep the music to myself because it’s very personal for me, but just wanted to share because I relate 100%

    This one was a big one for me in particular because it has elements of build up, but just before that a layer of electronic overtones her voice signals a rush of immense feeling.

    Towards the end there are heavy vibrations as well.



    Stay with me
    Won't you wait for me
    Care for me
    And never say never

    Love
    You're in my flesh and bone
    Where ever you go I'm home
    I'll follow you

    You're in my head
    In my heart
    In my soul
    Like the air I breathe

    You're in my head
    In my heart
    In my soul
    Like the air I breathe

    Yes you're my favourite need

    I'll follow you
    I'll follow you

    When everything seems lost
    I'm stuck and falling down
    You will guide me home
    So promise me

    You'll stay with me
    Won't you wait for me
    Care for me
    And never say never

    No never say never again
    No never say never again




    (By Kings of Leon)

    Always looking down at all I see
    Painted faces, fill the places I can't reach

    You know that I could use somebody
    You know that I could use somebody

    Someone like you, and all you know, and how you speak
    Countless lovers under cover of the street

    You know that I could use somebody
    You know that I could use somebody
    Someone like you

    Off in the night, while you live it up, I'm off to sleep
    Waging wars to shape the poet and the beat
    I hope it's gonna make you notice
    I hope it's gonna make you notice

    Someone like me
    Someone like me
    Someone like me, somebody

    Someone like you, somebody
    Someone like you, somebody
    Someone like you, somebody

    I've been roaming around,
    Always looking down at all I see


    I prefer this one where she sings over the original (not listed), it brings me to tears much faster.

    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    I'm not spiritual at all - but music is my passion, my emotional outlet, my drug. Different songs move me in different ways. Sometimes it's the melody, a certain set of chords. Sometimes it's the lyrics. Sometimes, the actual words don't matter, but the emotion behind them stands out. So many textures.

    Listen to anything by Tom Waits. Ramshackle beauty abounds. Adventure awaits at the bottom of the world. On the downtown train. In dive bars and dreamscapes. A song for all seasons of the psyche - or, if you prefer, the soul.

    Bands (or individual artists) that spark thoughts of spirituality in me:
    Dead Can Dance
    Autumn's Grey Solace
    The Church
    Loreena McKennitt
    Cocteau Twins
    Mazzy Star (listening to Hope Sandoval's voice is a spiritual experience)
    Blackmore's Night
    Patrick O'Hearn

    All are from the quieter side of my music library
    To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity. Douglas Adams

    Mornings are for coffee and contemplation. Jim Hopper
