Emotions, or, No Numb Here, Musical Theme

Emotions headline this Musical Theme per Willowdot21. I’ve chosen songs for both presentation and content.  I think each sings for itself.  There’s some frustration, some fear, a little love and gratitude, and a touch of defiance.  Nick Cave joins the ladies because he’s got a great song from a great flick.   Enjoy. 🙂


Evanescence ~~ Bring Me To Life



Joan Osborne ~~ Crazy Baby



Katie Webster ~~ Red Negligee



Shemekia Copeland ~~ Never Going Back to Memphis



Billie Holiday ~~Ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do



Evanescence ~~ Going Under

Sara Reiko Matsu


Nick Cave — I’ll Love You Till The End of the World

Carol Friz


Madeleine Peyroux ~~ Dance Me To the End of Love

    Wow, there is so much here in terms of range of emotional expression! And thanks for introducing me to Madeleine Peyroux. Great voice; great song! Don’t know how I’ve missed her. Great post! 🙂

      O it’s always so satisfying to share Madeleine Peyroux. Now that you’ve found her, you won’t be missing her any longer. At times she sounds enough like Lady Day to make you stop and wonder just who is singing. Thank you for visiting and listening–and for playing the musical theme game, Deborah.

    Oh I love the jazz you used. I see you plucked one from Until the End of the World as well. I think I could use every song from that soundtrack at some point. Thank you for the Amy Lee videos; she is so many things, and a great singer. She must have been electrical on stage. I’m giving you five stars for this one. You were all over the map as they say -not like drunk driving. 🙂

      Hey Johnny, whaoooo! 5 big gold stars! LOL. Thanks for enjoying. Oh yeah, Until the End of the World is one hell of a soundtrack.
      I couldn’t resist the Amy Lee combo–one on stage with an incredible totally engaged audience and something that highlighted her ability to carry a song all on it’s own.
      She, they, were indeed electrical.as you say.She/the band does not mess around on stage–it’s no holds barred going for broke music.
      Oh yeah.
      As for all over–hey, deer John, emotional roadmaps are wild things. 🙂 You know that for sure.

        I would marry Amy. Is there such a thing as an emotional roadmap? I have always seen it as groping through the woods at dusk, only remembering the places I tripped and fell -for future reference. 🙂

        I fear that there are indeed such things as emotional roadmaps, Johnny. Use with extreme caution. There are also the places you ‘smell’ for future reference–like the cedar and pine trees along highway 101 in the dark at high speed.

      I like Evanescence too… this is one of my favs:

      • November 9, 2013 at 8:43 pm

        I haven’t been to a concert since I took my daughter to see Evanescence live at the City Market for her birthday. This was after they’d released their first album. They ROCKED half the city in a comparatively ‘small’ outdoors venue where the music carried and carried like crazy. Absolutely incredible energy from start to finish. Best B-gift ever, maybe.
        This is a great song and a very beautiful video with the water lights. Thank you! 🙂

    • November 9, 2013 at 8:48 pm

      Excellent, Not Sam. 😉 Merci.

    Fabulous choices you have found emotions in places I had not thought of looking! Mind you that is the point of the game ! I notice I seem to be the only one to put in some of my work in …should I be doing that?
    Happy weekend my dear friend!!

    • November 9, 2013 at 8:47 pm

      Hey, willow, you dealt with emotions I hadn’t considered. Though I could have maybe done the Beautiful South video makers a good turn with some photocoverage of some ‘house cleaning’ a while back. Yeah, the roofers even stopped roofing to watch to that show.
      LOL. Hey, of course you should be putting your poetry and prose in. Why not? I put my crow poems in the last Theme.
      Enjoy they contents of your cups, willow. hehehe…couldn’t resist. 😉
