Pick of the Day:Beyonce’s ‘Halo’

“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!

Pick of the Day: Winehouse’s ‘Love is a Losing Game’

July 8, 2008 § 1 Comment

Amy Winehouse’s soulful crooning of ‘Love is a Losing Game‘ gives me goosebumps all over.  Each listen brings forth another dimension of pain, affection, and disappointment.

 

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.

Where Am I?
