[quote:daydreamin:MV8yMTA4NzkzXzM1NTQ5MjUxXzM3RTQzRDcz] This song everyone on this sit should listen to because I think you relate in some way or another. B.o.B. Ghost in the Machine And that's him playing piano he also plays guitar! He is a gift to humanity I promise! Here's a live version just to show him off http://youtu.be/Ph8PyDvfqXU Tell me where am I supposed to go? And who am I supposed to believe. If only you knew what I knew. Then you could see just what I see. [Chorus:] So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost. You say I look fine, if only you knew what was on my mind. You'd see a whole different side, I couldn't show you even if I tried. I must have got lost in time when I found out I was only free to be, where ever I want to be. Some say I'm out of sight, how ironic and that we're all so blind. If you could open up your eyes, you could see what I couldn't describe. And then, you'd see the signs, and then your soul would be set free, and then you'd be released. [Chorus:] So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost. Tell me where am I supposed to go. And who am I supposed to believe. If only you knew what I knew. Then you could see. (Hey) [Chorus:] So I grab my bags and go, as far away as I can go. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than feeling like a ghost. And I'm terrified, like I've seen a UFO. Cause everything ain't what I used to know. And I try to hide, but I just can't hide no more. There's nothing worse than <b [/quote]
I kept hearing a song by Fun on the radio called “Some nights”. It had all these elements, plus it sounded rousing and seemed apropos of the zeitgeist of our nation in some way. So I went online to see the video.
This song asks the question “What do I stand for?” against the backdrop of the War of Northern Aggression (more widely known as the American Civil War). In this video, the singer is depicted as a soldier for the Federal Government.
The singer seems to be ambivalent about the cause, and questions his involvement, but, like all young people, is driven by his passions and the notion of a “cause”. The song has a distinct martial feeling in the rat-tat-tat of the drumming.
