♫ Keep Singing ♫

Amazing song below. These days I am TOTALLY understanding Music and its power. As a species NOTHING conventional like Politics, Religion, Sport, the list is endless, can keep us together nor keep us agreeing, we disagree on ALL THINGS, well apart from 1 thing, MUSIC! I am trying to fight past 4 HUGE disabilities that effect my mind and body. I can sit and listen to UB40, I can sit and listen to Lionel Richie, just an example. I close my eyes and pretend to sing to my partner, or my family in a room or venue. In my mind’s eye I am laying in my bed, or my spare room sofa, wherever, and I can let the music take me over. I visualise myself singing songs, I know this sounds crazy but I have to control the disabilities that control my mind, so I am fighting back. If I can play a song into my headset or ear-buds and sing it till the end, I feel liberated in my mind, but often in my thoughts of singing any song, whatever I like in that moment, a demon from my past can creep into my performance, the performance in my mind, so my fight is so big, so visible, yet so small and un-noticed, and I write this not for me, I write this so others can TRY. I hope you can. Love this song below, his album went right to number 1!!. Its lyrics are powerful to me, again it applies to me, if you struggle with pain or mind confusion like I do, pick 1 song and don’t stop till you can imagine, feel, and OWN THE MOMENT, in your mind. Strange yes, disabled yes. 😀 But Disabled people can live, breath and try and NOT BE A BURDEN TO OUR LOVED ONES OR/NOR SOCIETY!!! We deserve this, well most of us, I know people HAPPY on disability benefits and drugs from Drs [YEAH, CHEATERS TAKING MONEY OTHERS NEED].

imagesDisabled or not, see how much you own your mind, good fun for some, real for others. Also I have two little girls in this house, I tell them ‘Daddy has a sore knee’, that will do for now, but they MUST see a real man, a man who loves, tries, shows them a healthy relationship with Mummy, make them know fun and laughter and also plant seeds for the bad things. One day they will see boys, I have a job to do so when they see boys they can see a man in there, not a stupid boy. That is my job, well 1 of them, I have to get this right, for them, it’s that simple. Life kills me, but they reward me with something else, I don’t know what yet. Maybe Angels do exist? Till next time, not really in a ‘Bloggy’ place these days, but Music and THE SIGN below can save many people, I just know I need to help. I am told ‘Help yourself 1st’ But I just can’t, I need to help because I know what it’s like to need help in this often amazing or horrible World we all share. Thanks again for a friend helping me construct this share here

Rick Astley – Keep Singing
Via: RickAstleyVEVO on You Tube

When I was a boy
I saw my daddy crying at the steering wheel
And oh, it made me feel so scared

Then there was joy
Found my religion, swimming in a chour of voices
And oh, I knew that I’d been spared

That I’d be saved some sunny day
Saved from throwing my life away
That I’d be saved some sunny day
From throwing my life, throwing my life away

Keep singing, woah, keep singing
Praising to the heavens with my voice ringing
Keep singing, woah, keep singing
Clap to the beat ’till my hands are stinging
And I’d be saved some sunny day
From throwing my life (throwing my life)
Throwing my life (throwing my life) away

And now I understand
I’m a wide eyed father, blessed are the children
Oh our greatest reward
And with these hands
I’ll move a mountain, build a castle to keep you safe
Of this, you know you can be sure

And you’ll be saved some sunny day
Saved from throwing your life away
And you’ll be saved some sunny day
From throwing your life, throwing your life away

Keep singing, woah, keep singing
Praising to the heavens with your voices ringing
Keep singing, woah, keep singing
Clap to the beat ’till your hands are stinging
And you’ll be saved some sunny day
From throwing your life (throwing your life)
Throwing your life (throwing your life) away

Who do you love
When it all comes down to truth
Who do you love
When it all comes back to you
Who do you love
When you’re lying in your bed
Who do you love
Who do you love

Keep singing, woah, keep singing, pray
Keep singing, woah, keep singing, pray
Keep singing, woah, keep singing, pray
Keep singing, woah, keep singing, pray

And you’ll be saved some sunny day
From throwing your life (throwing your life),
Throwing your life (throwing your life) away

MORE LOVE, LESS HATE

THE ABOVE IMAGE NEEDS CHANGED TO THIS - THIS REPRESENTS 'BETTER' FOR SOCIETY TO JUDGE

CHANGE THESE SIGNS!!! This sign represents more disabled people than not!

  1. Powerful song matey. I often think music is the only thing that keeps me sane these days. Even if i sound like someone tuning a radio these days, i still sing along to some of my favourites. You can’t help to be moved by the words some people write. They just hit that spot. I often long for past days when i sang in the Cathedral choir. Singing brought a great sense of joy, peace and contentment, whether it be churchy music or popular music.Music brings people together and helps them forget their differences. Music is the peacemaker.

    Keep singing matey.

    • When I can sing it is what you say mate, liberating!! There is nothing else that stops me being or feeling oppressed than music. We own every song, every word written by souls of many moods.
      Great share Patrick

  2. There is nothing like music to take us to yester-years, fill us with joy or send us down a painful spiral. How bleak life would be without music…. 🙂 Good stuff…

    • Yeah, good way to out it Lorra.
      In reality it is fun, but it does help people see things, connect to people and life. Every couple have a song they remember when they met, every person has ‘That Special song’ that can make them smile or cry.
      At Funerals we have the persons favourite song played, Weddings the couples song that connected them is played and they both dance to it.

      Touching Moments in Wedding – Everyone Cried after Daddy sang this song for Bride…:)

      Sometimes I think music = love creates metter moments than anything else.
      All the while we must understand a soul, a loved, tortured, troubled soul sat down, wrote the song, performed it, then we [Our Species] take that song and make it our own.
      Music connects people to each other and gives meaning to others. Music and it’s love saved my life…But I am aware these are jusy my thoughts and reasons…

      • Yeah I think so too Lorra..x
        In a World where we are divided and almost oppressed by each other, the power of music is liberating for sure.

        We should call it ‘Music Religion; , but another 4,000 music Religions would appear and ruin it 😀

        I am learning this just now..hard song, lol
        Hope you are good x
