I've been thinking about making this post for months! Now that I have been sick for few days and due to that don't have any new photos, I think it's a good time to publish this. I'm going to share a few photos that I have taken during gigs of the artists or bands that I really love. I'm also going to share my favourite song from every one of them and maybe tell the reason why I love these songs.
So, ladies first:
Ellie Goulding (Seen live in Ilosaarirock and Tavastia)
I probably love every single one of her songs, but this time I chose My Blood because I might be the one song that has affected me the most. I found Ellie Goulding's music when I was in a really bad place mentally and her songs kinda saved me.
Say Lou Lou
(Seen live at Tavastia and also met these awesome girls backstage and also at the airport)
Julian was the first song I heard from them and I fell in love instantly. I used to spend my time alone on my balcony and listen to this song over and over again.
Mew (Seen live in Ruisrock)
I've been in love with this band for years and this song, 156, is kind of obvious song for me to choose. I think that number is haunting me, because I keep seeing it everywhere... I think I have more emotional connections with their No More Stories/Are Told Today/I'm Sorry/They Washed Away//No More Stories/The World Is Grey/I'm Tired/Let's Wash Away album because the time when it was released was probably the most difficult time of my life, but I don't want to remind myself of those times, so I chose something else.
Snow Patrol (Seen live in Provinssirock)
Chasing Cars. I fell in love with this song maybe 8 years ago? Later I also fell in and out of love with someone and it almost ruined this song for me, but apparently I still love the song. It was a dream come true when I was able to see this band live few years ago!
The 1975 (Seen live at Tavastia)
Heart Out is my favourite song from the 1975 at the moment. This band is my newest musical crush, but it doesn't make it any less important.
Rise Against (Seen live in Ruisrock, Provinssirock, Kaapelitehdas and The Circus)
I even have a tattoo with lyrics from this song, so I guess that tells you how much Survive means to me, right? Even reading the lyrics makes me shiver.
Lyrics in general mean a lot to me so usually I really need to relate to the lyrics to be able to love the songs. Anyway, I hope at least someone found this post interesting and maybe even found something new to listen!
ps. Pahoittelen että tää on taas vain englanniksi, mutta ei jotenki tänään luista tämä äidinkieli. Lupaan kyllä jatkossa yrittää kirjottaa aina mahdollisuuksien mukaan kahdella kielellä, jos sitä ihmiset kaipailee.
Joku voi toki miettiä että miks ylipäätään kirjotan englanniksi mitään, mutta tiiättekö sen hetken ku löydätte jonkun kivan blogin ja se on vaikkapa ainoastaan venäjäksi? Tai japaniksi? Jep, sen takia koitan tarjota tekstini myös vähän globaalimmalla kielellä.
