“I can feel your halo halo halo
I can see your halo halo halo
Hit me like a ray of sun
Burning through my darkest night
You’re the only one that I want
Think I’m addicted to your light”
‘Halo’ by Beyonce Knowles
Echoing off the walls of heavenly white apartment walls and its too-good-to-be true dark brown wooden floors–Beyonce croons to her man in her new song called ‘Halo’. Songwriters, Evan Kidd Bogart, Ryan Benjamin Tedder and the singer herself, Beyonce, pulled off a fairly tricky analogy in this single–and made it work. There was a chance that the reference to an almost divine, angelic lover would sound tacky–but the allusions to light and even the halo are tastefully done. What the listener does get is another opportunity to sample Beyonce’s incredible range and the softly sensual spirit of the track.
These days I listen to the song at least 3 times a day!

Self professed, profound
Till the chips were down
Know you’re a gambling man
Love is a losing hand…
‘Love is a Losing Game’ by Amy Winehouse
A choice verse from my current favorite song.
