The Soundtrack To: Needs


I got to watching Sex and the City the other day looking for some ‘single girl’ advice, and what I gathered was that the same questions I had once had,  are still circulating in my mind. And in search of these answers I have suddenly realized that I’m back where I had left of seven years ago…absolutely nowhere!

In Season Four Episode 13, not only was Carrie friends with an old fling, but she was also back in a relationship with a man who had a million and one questions himself. Charlotte encountered that sometimes a cardboard baby will send anyone into an emotional roller-coaster ride, while Miranda found herself in a maternal disarray. Samantha managed to find the perfect (Dick) Richard, after sleeping with every man in the island of Manhattan, that I can’t help but question; this series isn’t really that far from the truth, now is it?

Women love shoes, and fashion. They love their corporate jobs, and expensive drapes. All the while having the same question:

when it comes to relationships, I couldn’t help but wonder, what are we fighting for?

As I went on to watch the relationship mess unfold right before my eyes (that might portrays some woman’s life out there somewhere) I found an answer for my needs that night, which is that I have manage to fall utterly and completely in love with Sade all over again.  And right now that’s the only answer I really need.

That’s the thing about needs, sometimes when you get them met, you don’t need them anymore.

Florence + The Machine

I was under the impression that everyone had heard of Florence + the Machine by now, well with the single Heavy in your Arms featured in the Eclipse soundtrack and all.  But I am finding that more and more people really don’t know who this woman with the magical voice is.  So allow me to introduce to you the music that has been blasting me back in to serenity.  The Janis Joplin of the Millenium.  This is Florence + The Machine.
