Days 19/20: 30 day music challenge

Day 19: A song that makes you think about life 

Today’s post is heavily influenced by Take That and I make no apologies for that. It just so happens that my choices for these two days are both by my favourite band. So a song that makes me think about life is The Garden. The lyrics to this song are so beautiful and it is where I got my username (and other blog title) Miracles of Matter from. From the moment the song opens with the gentle piano to its huge crescendo and back down to its peaceful end, every note is just perfect. It captures for me so much about life and how we should all try to lead our best one. I have very clearly stated to my loved ones that this should be played at my funeral (not that I’m planning for this to happen soon by the way).

It is also amazing performed live. Check out these performances on YouTube on the Circus tour and more recently in 2015 on the III tour.

Day 20: A song that has many meanings to you

Like I said, this will be another TT song, Patience. It’s not that the words have lots of different meanings but that the whole song does and it reminds me of different occasions. In some respects it is a sad song, it reminds me of a sad time when my dad had just passed away and I returned back to New Zealand after being in the UK for his funeral. It can also be a very positive song about love and relationships; it just depends on my mood when I listen to it. It is one of my favourite songs to watch perfomed live but my favourite performance of it was at The Brits. And of course it makes me happy that it is the song that brought them back together after ten years away. Happy times.
