In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful
Honestly, if you feel music is bad for you, then just skip this entire blog post. I understand. There are many schools of thought about music and Islam and I believe that it doesn't say music is haram in the Quran (please correct me if I am wrong). Also music has a big effect on me and only I know what is inside myself. I'm not bumping and grinding in a club or running around with blades in my hands, this is just my way of relaxing in my own little world after a stressful day. Everyone has their own thoughts and mind.
So please, no hating. Thanks!
Lowkey - One World ...it's always a favourite. No words necessary. He says it all.
Remember to check out Lowkey's new album "Soundtrack to the struggle"!
Al Green - Let's stay together. It has to be the best part of Pulp Fiction, during the bruce willis scene. It's just one smooth track and I am in love atm
Coldplay - Paradise. I am so gutted that I couldn't get tickets for their tour in December! I don't know what was up with ticketmaster but I couldn't get through to the pre-sale tickets or the general sale. I guess it was meant to be...well that's what i'm trying to tell myself anyway...my favourite coldplay songs will be in a future post for those who may not have heard much about them (tut tut! ;)
Train - drops of jupiter...it has to be one of those songs that everyone knows but doesn't realise it! : )
Nikka Costa - Everybody got their something... v.sassy! I found it through watching the film ''All about Steve'' with Sandra Bullock. If you haven't heard of her, don't be put off - try something new. Change can be good ^_^
Eric Clapton - Layla...it's funny because I liked the name 'layla' and was going to choose it as my Muslim name, after I reverted to Islam. Hub mentioned something which I can't quite remember now but he basically meant that the name was associated with something bad either here or in Jordan. Why did I want it at first? It's soft on the tongue to say. It's 2 syllables...and I like this song, duh! Has anyone seen ''Big Daddy'' where Buddy meets Layla and tells her "hey i like your song"? I thought that was cute...but I chose 'Yara' and found it a whole lot better as it suited me more alhamdulilah : )
