Music of significance…to me (1)

As you are aware, I am a huge Imagine Dragons fan. I will travel to see them, if I can. If you read my bio, you will see that my husband and I joke about being the oldest at their shows.

Insert a litte whine…they are playing in Orlando tomorrow night at Hard Rock with Nate Ruess. It’s a concert to benefit the victims of Orlando and donate money to first responders. I am sad to say that I am unable to go. 😦 Just cannot afford it at the moment (even though this could pull me completely out of my anxiety funk) 😉

With that said, I am playing the Smoke + Mirrors live concert on surround sound. Sorry neighbors!

The one part that gives me chills every single time is when Dan Reynolds sings a little bit of “Forever Young” ~ Alphaville right into Smoke + Mirrors.

If you ever get to hear Dan’s version. It is AWESOME!!!

Here ya go for the lyrics…

“Forever Young”

Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while
Heaven can wait, we’re only watching the skies
Hoping for the best but expecting the worst
Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

Let us die young or let us live forever
We don’t have the power but we never say never
Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip
The music’s for the sad men

Can you imagine when this race is won
Turn our golden faces into the sun
Praising our leaders, we’re getting in tune
The music’s played by the, the mad men

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever? Forever young

Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later, they all will be gone
Why don’t they stay young?

It’s so hard to get old without a cause
I don’t want to perish like a fading horse
Youth’s like diamonds in the sun
And diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn’t happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?
Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young
Do you really want to live forever?

Ps. They also play this song in Napoleon Dynamite, just an FYI.
