Music for Life, Rythm of Spirit

 

Hmm… To be honest, my mood must be unstable or my brain is in complexity if I post something with this kind of outline *Jiyahhhhh, what kind of terms?! We can call it pretending cool. Hehehhh…* While everyone else are in year end euphoria, preparing to take a leave for traveling somewhere, visiting their hometown or anything that they can do to enjoy this periode -massive vacation time-, I’m still at my desk in stagnancy. HuuuuWahhh, tomorrow is a quite long weekend and I haven’t confirmed any plan to kill my time yet. Actually, I really want to back to my hometown. But for one and some reason, I have to discourage it. Yahhh, shame on me then..

Eitzz, but those are not the things that I want to talk about in this post actually. For now I really want to share some kind of inspirational song. Well, actually music is still disputed in Islamic fiqh based on preventive and the way of life consideration. Some of Da’i interpret Al-Qur’an and Al-Hadits points differently. But I do believe that everythings that come out positively in a good intention won’t be ignored in my religion. Beside that, Islam always loves magnificence, no exception in art, as long as those can lead us in a good manner and no contrary with any of Islamic points. So I think, as long as I can maintain my positive intention and manner, it will be acceptable. Wallahu ‘alam Bissawab..

Hmm… however, be selective in choosing the kind of music is such important thing. Thank’s Ya Rabb, because I have a good sense of music, more over I listen to the melody mostly than the lyrics. Exploration of the song itself is the second step, after the rythm can catch up with my taste first. No boundaries of genre, no boundaries of origin.

But since I’ve realized that song is effective enough as a media in learning process, I start to pay attention to the lyrics too. I can maintain my foreign linguistic interest through the song. And sometimes when I get bored or in a bad mood condition, music can help effectively. There are a lot of positive inspiration spreads in those tons number of songs, althought there’s nothing that can be as best as the magic effect of Al-Qur’an words of course. In this terms, I just want to emphasized that some thing can be positive or negative depend on the way we treat it. Life is about choices, and The Almighty Allah SWT has endue human with amazing logic capability to filter it.

After all, I want to share the recently listened song in my playlist. Nice meaning of lyrics, and of course nice rythm… ^^

 

When you take a breath
But you can’t hold it in
When you try to live
But you don’t know where to begin

When there’s no hope left
No place you can go
Well, just look inside your heart
Close your eyes and you’ll know

It’s euphoria
Out of the blue, into the light
Let it shine down all over you, yeah
You gotta give to love to get love

In euphoria
Under the moon, take in the night
Let each day start yourself anew, yeah
You gotta give love to get love

Like a piece of glass
That’s washed in from the sea
You can’t taste the good
unless your willing to bleed

So just take a chance
You’re ready to fly
Feel what it is to be alive

It’s euphoria
Out of the blue, into the light
Let it shine down all over you, yeah
You gotta give to love to get love

In euphoria
Under the moon, take in the night
Let each day start yourself anew, yeah
You gotta give love to get love

In euphoria
You gotta give love to get love
In euphoria
You gotta give love to get love
In euphoria

Life can bring you down
Then turn you around
Well, just take it from me
And you will see, you will see

That time will tell us when
To start again, start over again
Whoa, time will tell us when
To start again, start over again

Life can bring you up
And steal your luck
Well, just take it from me
And you will see, you will see

That time will tell us when
To start again, start over again
Whoa, time will tell us when
To start again, start over again

Time
Time, yeah
Time

After all you’ve done
You thought there’d be someone
Who’d give you everything you want
After all this time
You think they’d throw you a line
To let you know it’s gonna be alright

It’s gonna be alright

‘Cause time will tell us when
To start again, start over again
Whoa, time will tell us when
To start again, start over again
