I heard this song last night and I am loving it! It’s gotten me into such a great power mood to throw a load of clothes in the washing machine (I am ALWAYS doing laundry. It just seems to be some kind of destiny thing I have going on.) AND head down to the gym whilst the machine runs through its little cycle. And then I’ll do a tidy up and get some work done.
THAT is a good song when it makes you REALLY WANT TO do stuff so I thought I would share. This baby is going on my playlist for when I need a boost. It’s going to be on repeat today.
In anticipation of tonight’s Mardi Gras parade and finding out what the anthem will be this year, here is an anthem of another sort that I adore.
Ego. With a capital E.
To my Ego, my Pride and my Hubris. I hope you like this song. I release you happily. Thanks for everything, you can go now, and take my Fear with you.
Without you, I am free now to create.
(Note: This used to be a link to an awesome remix on Soundcloud, but since then that link has changed. Until I find it again here is the original version which is still awesome.)
My favourite lines:
I held you in high regard, you were an answer from God.
When I used to love youuuuuuuuuuuu. There was nothing that I wouldn’t do.
You’re all take and no give as the expression goes.
But I’m tired of living this life. It’s getting harder to justify. I realise I just don’t love youuuuuuuuuuuuuu. Not like I used to.
The numbers just don’t quite add up.
I can’t afford you.
You’re just in the way. You don’t help me, you harm me. What’s the value of holding onto you and putting you first? Zero. Nil. Nada.
The most upbeat breakup anthem I ever loved. And shouldn’t these type of tunes always be anthems? We’re picking freedom from a toxic love, and that’s no kind of love at all.
Maybe, it’s me, maybe i bore you No no, it’s my fault, cause i can’t afford u Maybe baby, Puffy, Jay z Would all be better for you Cause all I can do is love you
Baby when I used to love you (There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do) I went through the fire for you, Did anything you asked me to But I’m tired of living this lie It’s getting harder to justify I realized that I just don’t love you Not like I used to
HaLa ala la HAla ala la
Maybe, I should rob somebody So we could, live like Whitney and Bobby It’s probably my fault, my bad, my loss But you are, above cost Cause all I could do was love you
Baby when I used to love you, There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do I went through the fire for you, Did anything you asked me to. But I’m tired of living this lie. It’s getting harder to justify, I realized that I just don’t love you Not like I used to.
Hala hala hala Hala hola hola
Do you remember when I used to love you (I used to love you) Baby no, not any more, love you (but I don’t love you) Ooohhhh, I love you (I used to love you) And you’re gonna miss me now
Baby when I used to love you There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do, I went through the fire for you, But I’m not gonna play the fool No I can’t live this lie, and I can’t justify, And I can’t make up my life Cause I don’t love you Not like I used to do Not like I used to do Not like I used to do
Hola holla holla Holla holla holla
(I used to love you) (I used to love you) (I used to love you)
I bet you miss me now Cause I don’t love you
When I let go and release what is no longer serving me, I make space for something better. Choose Love. What’s your fave anthem? And what are you releasing?
