The Script Superheroes! Released Today!!!

Exclamation marks necessary!!! The Script finally released their new song, Superheroes, the first song from No Sound Without Silence. No Sound Without Silence was announced on Friday in a live google chat. Their fourth album will be released on the 15th of September 2014 in the UK (on the 12th of September in Ireland and a US release date has yet to be announced), and I’m sure that all of The Script Family are eagerly anticipating the new work! Superheroes is about the people who rise from adversity, beating the odds – the real superheroes of this world. The chorus is just amazing, The Script have to get to no. 1 with this! The boys have told us to think of No Sound Without Silence as a sequel to their self-titled debut album, The Script. This is the best material to come from Script so far!

Lyrics:

All the life, she has seen
All the meaner side of me
They took away the prophet’s dream
For a profit on the street
Now she’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

All his life, he’s been told
He’ll be nothing when he’s old
All the kicks and all the blows
He will never let it show
Cause he’s stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

All the hurt, all the lies
All the tears that they cry
When the moment is just right
You’ll see fire in their eyes
Cause they’re stronger than you know
A heart of steel starts to grow

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power
Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

She’s got a lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He’s a got a beast in his belly
That’s so hard to control
Cause they’ve taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light them up, stand back, watch them explode

She’s got a lions in her heart
A fire in her soul
He’s a got a beast in his belly
That’s so hard to control
Cause they’ve taken too much hits
Taking blow by blow
Now light them up, stand back, watch them explode

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been working every day and night
That’s how a superhero learns to fly
(Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power)

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Oh yeah….

Every day, every hour
Turn the pain into power

Ooh yeah
Woah

When you’ve been fighting for it all your life
You’ve been struggling to make things right
That’s how a superhero learns to fly

PS. please understand that I’m just reposting this for song of the week :D

I’ve Been Drinking

That’s not a song lyric, that’s a fact. When I was ten, I took the Confirmation Pledge – a promise to God that I would not drink or take drugs until I turned 18. Last night I broke that. I was at a birthday party and I was with two friends, E and M, my own age and a girl, Mo, who is 17 who I used to be friends with. Mo was having a gin and tonic and E had been given a glass of red wine by one of my relatives. E only had a sip and didn’t like it. So then Mo offered her a sip of her gin and tonic, “um, that’s nice,” remarked E. Then Mo offered me a sip and I took it without a second thought.

Seeing that my Confirmation pledge was broken, I had a vodka and coke later that night and a gin and coke earlier. I feel kind of bad, if I was an Atheist I wouldn’t, but I made a promise to God that the ten year old me couldn’t imagine breaking. I broke my promise. I’m sorry God.

SONG OF THE WEEK MKTO Classic Video & Lyrics

Classic brings back vivid memories of driving around Barcelona on the bus, every few minutes we would burst out singing MKTO. Malcom Kelley and Tony Oller used to play best friends on Nickelodeon’s Gigantic, now they make music together as MKTO. Classic really is a classic song.

 

Lyrics:
Hey! Where’s the drums?

Oh whoa-oh-oh-oh

Let’s go!

[Tony:]
Ooh girl you’re shining
Like a 5th avenue diamond
And they don’t make you like they used to
You’re never going out of style

Ooh pretty baby
This world might’ve gone crazy
The way you save me
Who can blame me
When I just wanna make you smile?

[Hook:]
I wanna thrill you like Michael
I wanna kiss you like Prince
Let’s get it on like Marvin Gaye
Like Hathaway
Write a song for you like this

[Chorus:]
You’re over my head
I’m out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
One of a kind, living in a world gone plastic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you,
Baby you’re so classic

Four dozen of roses
Anything for you to notice
All the way to serenade you
Doing it Sinatra style

Ima pick you up in a Cadillac
Like a gentleman bringin’ glamour back
Keep it reel to reel in the way I feel
I could walk you down the aisle

[Hook:]
I wanna thrill you like Michael
I wanna kiss you like Prince
Let’s get it on like Marvin Gaye
Like Hathaway
Write a song for you like this

[Chorus:]
You’re over my head
I’m out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
It’s love on rewind,
Everything is so throwback-ish (I kinda like it, like it)
Out of my league
Old school chic
Like a movie star
From the silver screen
You’re one of a kind living in a world gone plastic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic

[Malcolm:]
Baby you’re class and baby you’re sick
I never met a girl like you ever til we met
A star in the 40s, centrefold in the 50s
Got me tripping out like the sixties
Hippies Queen of the discotheque
A 70s dream and an 80s best
Hepburn, Beyoncé, Marilyn, Massive
Girl you’re timeless, just so classic

[Chorus:]
You’re over my head I’m out of my mind
Thinking I was born in the wrong time
It’s love on rewind,
Everything is so throwback-ish (I kinda like it, like it)
Out of my league
Old school chic
Like a movie star
From the silver screen
You’re one of a kind living in a world gone plastic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic
Baby you’re so classic

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a book review, mainly because I haven’t found a book worth finishing in a while, but today I’m going to review The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.

I loved The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon and I finished it in one day! It’s a nice length and has plenty of diagrams to help explain things and break up writing. It’s a story of deceit, murder and being brave, although not in the way that you might expect.

It’s based on a 15 year old boy who has Asperger’s Syndrome and owns a pet rat called Toby. He lives with his dad, his mum died.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time is a murder mystery novel like no other. The detective, and narrator, is Christopher Boone. Christopher is fifteen and has Asperger’s Syndrome. He knows a very great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He hates the colours yellow and brown and being touched. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour’s dog murdered he sets out on a terrifying journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

Overall, a brilliant read which I highly recommend!

Being Lazy

I’m not doing much, just lounging in comfy clothes and eating homemade toffee popcorn (I’ll post a recipe, swear). I watched the World Cup Final last night, and of course Germany won! I’m a bit annoyed that neither BBC or ITV would show the closing ceremony and just waffled instead. Although, if it was anything like the opening ceremony I wouldn’t be able to watch it – the sound was horrendous, you couldn’t hear any of the singers.

I got back on track with regard to writing, I managed to get a few paragraphs done last night and I’ve been editing earlier chapters. My phone stopped working briefly which hindered the process but it’s working again! I have a Nokia Windows Phone so I can use Microsoft Word on it and then save my work to SkyDrive which means I can also access it from my laptop. I love my Nokia Lumia, some people do complain about it on the internet but you are more likely to complain than compliment something. It’s a very simple but effective phone, which is why I love it so much. They are so much better than iPhones and BlackBerrys: they don’t break easily, they don’t cost a fortune, they don’t freeze (ok, well mine did once which was why it stopped working but it was easily fixed!).

How did this post turn into a phone review?

Strong Opinions Make Popular Posts

So last night I posted about the picture of Oscar Knox being burnt on a bonfire, and it has been my most popular post to date. May I just clarify, I didn’t see this myself I just heard about it and there is no proof. One rumour is that it was put on the fire but taken down by others, another is that it was just made up on twitter (although people who make up a story like that are just as bad). In one day that post has had over 100 views, that’s a lot for this humble blog. Another post that was really popular was my one about Christianity and gay rights.

It’s nice to know that being opinionated is tolerated and accepted on the internet. I’m often given grief for my opinions, and it’s not like I have shocking or cruel opinions. Thank you for listening to me without being rude.

Horrible People Everywhere

I may not celebrate the twelfth of July or bonfire night on the eleventh but I respect people’s right to have a good time, as long as they respect others. So imagine how I felt when I heard a rumour that a picture of Oscar Knox was burnt on a bonfire in Antrim.

Oscar Knox was a little boy who died of cancer two months ago. He thought bravely and just because he died doesn’t mean that he lost the battle. Why was his picture burned on a fire? Because he was Catholic. Or why was the story made up? Because some person was seeking attention.

Oscar Knox was innocent, he was probably too young to understand what sectarianism meant. What type of person would burn a picture of a little boy on a bonfire? Or what type of person would make up a story like that? For those who think it might just have been a mark of respect, keep in mind that statues of the Virgin Mary (stolen from Catholic churches), pictures of the pope and tricolours are often burnt on these bonfires as a mark of disrespect.

I’m sure that most people would join me in condemning the people who so publicly disrespected a little boy who died of cancer, but those people who put that picture there and watched it burn, or those people who made up such a horrible lie, should be ashamed of themselves and should apologise to the poor, grieving parents of Oscar Knox. As well, this should be investigated by the police as a hate crime.
