Night of Songs

January 27, 2011

Music filled the Writing Center last night, during our Night of Songs workshop. Dominguez Rodriguez, Heather Reed, Gabriel Drevon, Dustin Opper, Braden Walter, EB Newlon, and Sean Marley shared their some of their favorite songs and discussed why these particular lyrics were meaningful to them.

These were the songs that were shared:

Dominguez Rodriguez- “I Can Feel It In The Air” by Juelz Santana

This ain’t where I’m supposed to be (I can feel it in the air)
things are just moving slow for me
But this my year I swear (I can feel it in the air)

 Heather Reed- “Dog Days Are Over” by Florence And The Machine

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horses?
‘Cause here they come

Gabriel Drevon- “My Way” by Frank Sinatra

For what is a man what has he got
If not himself then he has not
To say the things he truly feels
And not the words of one who kneels
The record shows I took the blows
And did it my way

Dustin Opper- “Understand Your Man” by Johnny Cash

I ain’t gonna repeat what I say anymore
While I’m breathing air that ain’t been breathed before
I’ll be as gone as the wild gruesome winter
Then you’ll understand your man

Braden Walter- “The Incomparable Mr. Flannery” by Clutch

Stole my Camaro, primer gray.
Took my suitcase, all my pay
Ain’t got no tailights, grill full of fur.
How could you do this to me man so close to being cured?

EB Newlon- “Dwarves’ Song To Tease Bilbo” from The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl;
Pound them up with a thumping pole;
And when you’ve finished, if any are whole,
Send them down the hall to roll!

Sean Marley- “Life Is Beautiful” by SIXX:A.M.

Just open your eyes
Just open your eyes
And see that life is beautiful.
Will you swear on your life,
That no one will cry at my funeral?
