Why music is such a great thing (and cameras are the next best thing ever!)

Epic+moment+in+flower+world_603313_4892164

We all have our moments when we think no one is watching (or just forget that there is actually a camera in front of us) and we get carried away.

This is one epic and hilarious example.

This is what I like about music… it brings out such happiness in us and takes us to a different level where it doesn’t matter who we are, what we are or the roles we play in life…

I almost died trying to hide all my laughter while watching this video because I am unfortunately at work and this is supposedly a no-no. (Yikes.. but you can’t blame me, this is too good to let pass!)

Enjoy and hopefully you’re watching this at home where you can laugh out loud! You gotta love those moves.. I am jealous just looking at how he shakes it off really nicely! 🙂

Doesn’t that just want to make you sing along and groove too??

Take me to church on a Wednesday afternoon

I have plenty of work that need to get done but for some reason, I just can’t let this day slide without featuring this song I have become quite fond of. The melody is quite taking and as soon as you hear the lyrics, you get more intrigued and even more so if you read all the lyrics:

Take me to Church

My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshipped her sooner
If the Heavens ever did speak
She is the last true mouthpiece
Every Sunday’s getting more bleak
A fresh poison each week
‘We were born sick,’ you heard them say it
My church offers no absolutes
She tells me ‘worship in the bedroom’
The only heaven I’ll be sent to
Is when I’m alone with you
I was born sick, but I love it
Command me to be well
Amen. Amen. Amen

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

If I’m a pagan of the good times
My lover’s the sunlight
To keep the Goddess on my side
She demands a sacrifice
To drain the whole sea
Get something shiny
Something meaty for the main course
That’s a fine looking high horse
What you got in the stable?
We’ve a lot of starving faithful
That looks tasty
That looks plenty
This is hungry work

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

No masters or kings when the ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our gentle sin
In the madness and soil of that sad earthly scene
Only then I am human
Only then I am clean
Amen. Amen. Amen

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church
I’ll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies
I’ll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life

The song is (I think) nicely and poetically well-written and its so intriguing that many people have many different interpretations of it. But you know just by reading the lyrics it that it refers to “sexy time”.

I haven’t yet seen the video but from what I have read, it shows you a different meaning compared to that of the lyrics so I immersed in the lyrics first before the video.

Here is the video though so watch it along with me:
