Seduction in Song

Updated on July 5, 2012

stirring songs

 

“...hike up your skirt a little more, show your world to me...” (Crash Into Me lyrics). Dave Matthews is the consummate seducer, maybe that's why a lot of girls dig his music. It all begins with his voice, it has that raspy grating intense sincerity that demands for attention. Then there's the stirring melodies of his songs teeming with desperation. Finally there's the words of his songs, the breathing gripping messages that spews images to take you away, off to some secret alcove where only you and the music exist.

“you've got your ball you've got your chain tied to me tight, tie me up again...lost for you I'm so lost, and you come crash into me, I'm coming to you in a boy's dream...” “you wear nothing but you wear it so well”, “tied up and twisted the way I want to be for you” (Crash Into Me lyrics)-- Now who wouldn't want to be in someone's thought in this way?

Crash Into Me

“,,,only love can bring the hope back in our minds...” The words are pretty basic, its how they've been arranged together that changes it, i think this is what people mean when they say someone's got a way with words. “Come sister my brother shake up your bones shake up your feet. I'm saying open up and let the rain come pouring in wash out this tired notion that the best is yet to come. But while you're dancing on the ground don't think of when you're gone” (Pig lyrics). There's definitely some twist to how he sees life, maybe not so much of a stretch, just a different, refreshing view that comes out in his lyrics. This particular song has been called a lyrical masterpiece.

“lovely lady, let me drink you please 'won't spill a drop no i promise you...” The messages are honest, maybe too honest, deliciously so. “lying under this spell you cast on me, each moment the more i love you, crush me c'mon oh yeah” (Crush lyrics). I think this is the sexiest of all the band's songs. 

Crush

 

And then there's the love of my life Paul Weller, well I seriously believed he's my soul mate but that's neither here nor there. “I come to you when you least expect, I call on you to come with me now, I ask of you to drop all things of absolution and whatever maybe in your hands. All on a misty morning I come to you with love, all on a misty morning I come to you, I come to you with love...” “I'll talk to you as a lover should, with a voice close to your ear... let my hands be nimble, let my tongue be quick, let my loins slip slowly against your skin.” (All on a Misty Morning lyrics). I read somewhere that through some technical magic, Paul Weller and his technicians has made his voice on his songs sound as if he's whispering on the listener's ear. Do no ask me what technology that is, I simply don't know. The funny thing is even before I found out about this tech magic, its exactly how I feel when I listen to his music, like he's just nearby and he's singing directly to me only.

 

Sometimes I get caught up with music, and rightly so. I swear there are some songs that has the power to rearrange your view of the world, of people. “Sometimes you look so small, you need some shelter, just running around in a helter skelter. I've leaned on you for years now you can lean on me, that's more than love, that's the way it should be. I can't change the way you feel, but I could put my arms around you. That's just part of the deal, that's the way I feel, I'll put my arms around you. I'll stand in front of you, I'll take the force of the blow, protection. You're a boy and I'm a girl sometimes you look so small.” (Protection by Everything But the Girl).

 

I wish I could write songs, but I'm no musician. I'm told that the words and the melody always go hand in hand, can't have one without the other. I can't create melodies, I can only do words. So really I can't be a songwriter. But I'm a big fan of composers of beautiful music, from the melody to the words.

All on a Misty Morning
