music A - Z challenge #F farmdale and final state

in #a-zmusic7 months ago (edited)

The world is still upside down and music can help us hold on to our humanity during this extended season of social distancing and social unrest. The media says to brace for covid part 2. It’s all too confusing trying to keep up with the drama that the sanest thing to do may be turning OFF the news and turning ON some music or making some if you play. Thanks to @psos for creating fun challenges to inject some joy into our community. This particular challenge’s rules are:

  1. Each post = ONE alphabet letter. Choose 2 bands or singers and 1 song to represent each.
  2. Write something as to why you are sharing the artist or song.
  3. Share a link 🎵

All songs I post will be from my Driving Playlist - songs for contemplation while on the road.

Farmdale - Feelin’ Alright

Play this song to dance a happy rebellious bounce about your house. REMEMBER how good, kind, and goofy we can be when the world isn’t telling you HOW you should feel. You’re alive. You’re loved. And darn it, you’re STRONGER than all this doom and gloom the world wants to squash you down with. You refuse to drink the kool-aid and you’re not picking up any stupid proverbial brick to join the divide and conquer culture war.

Be kind. Be awesome. Be happy. Be grateful.

It’s very important to remember happiness. If we forget, we won’t know how to return to it.

Final State - Dreaming Out Loud

My playlist has several songs en Francais. What better way to practice French than by listening to music to encourage my brain to make the connections. I include the lyrics (les paroles) and English translation. And, of course, it’s ANOTHER happy song from my my Driving Playlist - songs for contemplation while on the road. Since I’ve not driven in months, these songs as still valuable for putting my head on straight and moving forward.

Dream Out Loud, make a joyful noise, even when life is low on awesome sauce.

Fire it up, Girl
You gotta stand tall
Everybody knows you're the queen of it all

Don't give it up, Girl
'Cause you gotta try
You'll never ever know
If you don't ask why

Comment on s'y rendra
à y aller jusqu'au bout
Quand les murs s'effrondrent et tombent sur nous

Parfois la vie te peut rendre fou
Et puis t'aveugler de peur de rendre jaloux

Droit devant toi
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,Baby

Droit devant toi
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,Baby

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
Il n'est jamais trop tard
Heh oh, heh oh

Car on avance lentement
Mais on marche droit
Sans avoir peur de predre le combat
Il n'es jamias trop tard
heh oh, heh oh

Quand on se perd pour se retrouver
Quand l'envie nous prend de s'abandonner

On se relève
On se fou de tout
On se promet d'être fort
Tenir jusqu'au bout

Droit devant toi
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,Baby

Droit devant toi
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,Baby

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
Il n'est jamais trop tard
Heh oh, heh oh

Car on avance lentement
Mais on marche droit
Sans avoir peur de predre le combat
Il n'es jamias trop tard
heh oh, heh oh

Ô, laisse-toi aller
tu sais c'que tu vaux
Il n'y a pas de bas
Sans avoir de hauts

Ô, laisse-toi aller
tu sais c'que tu vaux
Il n'y a pas de bas
Sans avoir de hauts

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
Il n'est jamais trop tard
Heh oh, heh oh

Car on avance lentement
Mais on marche droit
Sans avoir peur de predre le combat
Il n'es jamias trop tard
heh oh, heh oh

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
Don't you wanna go wild now?
Heh oh, heh oh

Car on avance lentement
Mais on marche droit
Sans avoir peur de predre le combat
Il n'es jamias trop tard
heh oh, heh oh

Final State Dreaming Out Loud

Fire it up, Girl
You gotta stand tall
Everybody knows you're the queen of it all

Don't give it up, Girl
‘Cause you gotta try
You'll never ever know
If you don't ask why

How we will get there
to go there until the end
When the walls collapse and fall on us

Sometimes life can drive you crazy
And then blind you for fear of making you jealous

Right in front of you
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows, Baby

Right in front of you
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows, Baby

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
It's never too late
Heh oh, heh oh, oh

'Cause we're moving slowly
But we walk straight
Without being afraid to fight
It’s never too late
heh oh heh oh

When we get lost to find ourselves
When the urge takes us to surrender

We get up
We make fun of everything
We promise to be strong
Hold to the end

Right in front of you
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows, Baby

Right in front of youEverybody knows,
Everybody knows,
Everybody knows, Baby

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
It's never too late
Heh oh, heh oh

'Cause we're moving slowly
But we walk straight
Without being afraid to fight
It’s never too late
heh oh heh oh

O, let yourself go
you know what you are worth
There is no low
Without having high

O, let yourself go
you know what you are worth
There is no low
Without having high

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
It’s never too late
Heh oh, heh oh

'Cause we're moving slowly
But we walk straight
Without being afraid to fight
It’s never too late
heh oh heh oh

Keep on dreaming out loud now
Heh oh, heh oh, oh
Don't you wanna go wild now?
Heh oh, heh oh

'Cause we're moving slowly
But we walk straight
Without being afraid to fight
It’s never too late
heh oh heh oh
