OneRepublic – Oh My My

Let me just start out with saying I’m a huge OneRepublic fan and was lucky enough to catch them live last time they toured… Love this band. 

So… No art inspiration last night after getting little sleep with the fun of nursing… All mombies need caffeine so I figured what better way to cope with my kiddos yelling at eachother during the morning rush other than  some Starbucks and the second cd currently in my car. 

This is their 4th album and it’s a lil dif but a great listen all the same. I think my fav track is ‘kids’…  It’s fun and peppy and makes me think of being young and stress free.  Simple times at times.

Then my other two fav tracks on repeat are ‘born’ and ‘choke’… I could listen to the whole album over and over again, I enjoyed it so much.

I don’t know if they recorded any of it in Asia but that’s what came to mind for me. When I listened to parts of ‘born’ the images that I thought of involved Japanese cherry trees and Asian pears… I know it’s odd lol… I just felt like it’d be a song that I would listen to if I were in South Korea for a week or even Japan.

When I listen to ‘choke’ it makes me think of a love that is no more… I can’t go back to it, even if I wanted to. Regret. But in all that I’m still doing okay. Those are the emotions I feel listening to this song. I’ve kissed a few frogs over the years while looking for my prince. Not all of them were frogs from the start though, if that makes sense.

I don’t think this cd will leave my car except to burn a copy so that the original can stay safe on my bookcase. 

If I get time and ample energy, I’m thinking I’d sketch something with cherry blossom trees maybe amidst a background wash of  blue… Oh the possibilities:)
