Music Monday - Say by John Mayer *

Ever since I decided to join LadyJava's Music Monday, I've been so excited thinking of all the songs I can feature here for my listening pleasure and yours too! Now that EC doesn't allow autoplay music on blogs, I really miss my old music box that used to entertain me here at Mariuca's Perfume Gallery.

I was torn between the many songs that I'd like to feature for the very first time for Music Monday. It has to be a really good one, sufficiently so to get me going with this weekly affair, so it was important to chose a great number. Should I go for a more recent tune, or should I go back in time to when a particular song moved me to do something totally out of character? Or how about one of my favourite 80s tunes? So many picks and I do love music, so after being torn between songs for the whole night, I'm going to go with a tune that's been playing in my mind over and over again these last few days. ;)

Taken from the movie The Bucket List (A story of two terminally ill men who escaped from a cancer ward and ventured on a road trip with a
to-dos wish list before they die), this song makes me HEART John Mayer even more. His vocals sound absolutely awesome here, soulful perfection at its height! With a laid-back performance and utter simplicity in delivery, Mariuca can't help but be hopelessly lost in those pleading eyes and adorable chin cleft as JM serenades with his beautiful words! ;)

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all your so called problems
Better put 'em in quotations

Say what you need to say (x7)
Say what you need to saaaay...

Walking like a one man army
Fighting with the shadows in your head
Living out the same old moment
Knowing you'd be better off instead

If you could only
Say what you need to say (x7)
Say what you need to saaay...

Have no fear
For giving in
Have no fear
For giving over
You better know that in the end
It's better to say too much
Then never to say what you need to say again

Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open... wide...

Say what you need to say (x7)
Say what you need to
Say what you need to
Say what you need to say...

Hi Mariuca.
I love music and added my name in the list.
Could you please explain me the rules, if there are any we should consider?

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 3:10 AM

Hi Mize!! Yay, you've joined us here at MM! :)

There are no particular rules I think, just that u have to post a music video of any song you're currently into and we do it every Monday! Don't forget to have the Mr. Linky box at ur post too, so we can all visit each other and check out the videos/songs for the week! Cool fun eh? :):):)

Mizé November 3, 2008 at 11:58 AM

Hi Mariuca.
Ok, simple rules.
Most musics I really like are a bit old but there´s some new stuff I like too.
I think I will have fun.

Love n Hugs from Genie Princess!
