Never enough

The Greatest Showman is quite a show, even though Dude had some serious concerns about Wolverine dance and sing.  He got over it fairly quickly.  It is probably one of the best musicals I’ve seen in a very long time and this is mainly because I don’t watch musicals.  The family were forced to watch this one because of a nagging Princess.  It was worth it.

Yes it’s cheesy and yes it’s predictable and yes it’s an exaggerated life story using extensive poetic licensing…but what a beautiful movie it makes. The set pieces are astonishing, the cast shine throughout and the music is actually something I would listen to.  All in all, great family entertainment.

What makes this movie truly spectacular is the message.  A message of being human and acknowledging differences in people.  A celebration of our uniqueness.  It’s a movie that teaches us to be ourselves, to embrace everything that is you.  And not conform to what we think other people wants us to be.  Because if you chase the latter, you might just find it is NEVER ENOUGH.

PS – I pray that one day a man will look at my daughter the same way Hugh Jackman stares at Jenny in this scene from the Greatest Showman.

Not to ruin the movie for anyone but the real star of this song is the actual singer, LOREN ALLRED.  You can watch her life version of the song here.

Ashes

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of Deadpool.  Like really, really big.  Like groupie level.  Of Celine Dion a little less so.

Until now.  Watch this video and you will understand. CELINE DION is hitting ASHES out of the park. And Deadpool is Deadpool.

Wild hearts can’t be broken

I know this is unfair.  I haven’t posted in a million days and when I do, it’s another song from P!NK.  Well what can I say, this lady can sing and her ballads are among the best out there.  Her words pours directly out of her soul and her voice elevates normal notes to something that belongs in a different dimension.

So in honour of my return to this blog, let’s celebrate with WILD HEARTS CAN’T BE BROKEN by the greatest artist working at the moment.

And if this video doesn’t stir something in your soul it’s only because you don’t have one.

Be inspired.

Run Silent Run Deep

It’s been almost two months since my last post.  Shocking, is it not?

What’s even worse is the moment when I realised that I have not posted one of my ALL TIME GREATEST songs on this blog.  What kind of person am I becoming!  This song hails from the eighties, obviously, because that’s when all the great music was recorded.  Did you know that every time you listen to an eighties song it makes you a better person?

SHAKESPEARES SISTER is probably better known for their hit song Stay, but I simply love how their voices work together on the lyrics of RUN SILENT.  I still can’t get enough of this song and the sadness of the group breaking up, more than 20 years ago.  The duo only released two albums because the ladies couldn’t get along.  *insert gif of two cats fighting in a mud pit*

Enjoy and you’re welcome.
