15 Elton John Quotes About Music & Some Of His Most Famous Song Lyrics About Love

The Rocket Man’s best sayings.

The flashy and flamboyant Elton John is one of the most successful solo artists to grace the Earth. His mass success saw him sell over 300 million records, produce more than fifty Top 40 hits, and have 27 top 10 singles, including nine number one songs. He collaborated with lyricist Bernie Taupin to create songs that blended styles of rock and pop.

Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight in March of 1947, Elton grew up in a semi-conservative household. His parents’ affinity for music proved to be a good environment for developing his talent. At age three, Elton had taught himself how to play the piano, his instrument of choice.

John’s ascension in music came in the early 70s. Number one songs became a regularity for the singer/songwriter. His live shows garnered attention as he would wear lavish, over-the-top outfits and his iconic glasses. Of these outfits, he said “I wasn’t a sex symbol like Bowie, Marc Bolan or Freddie Mercury, so I dressed more on the humorous side, because if I was going to be stuck at the piano for two hours, I was going to make people look at me.”

Taking a break from music later that decade saw Elton announce that he was bisexual. This was not well received at the time, and the singer was taunted for his sexuality. He later came out as gay, and became an icon for the LGBTQ community.

The 80s and 90s saw Elton become an advocate for AIDS awareness. An issue which hit close to him, as he acknowledged he could have contracted the disease and lost friends to it.

Elton John’s accolades and awards are seemingly endless. He has won multiple Grammy and Brit awards along with a Tony and an Academy award. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. Four years later, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

An astounding career for an astounding man. Elton John and lyricist collaborated to make some iconic songs. Here are some of the best Elton John quotes and song lyrics from some of his most famously known music:

1. Music heals.

Music has healing power. It has the ability to take people out of themselves for a few hours.” — Elton John

2. Feeling pain.

Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won’t heal? Your eyes have

8 (Pretty Much) Perfect Quotes From Songs That Teach Us How To Love Hard In Relationships

relationship advice quotes from love songs - 8 (Pretty Much) Perfect Quotes From Songs That Teach Us How To Love Hard In Relationships

Music can be a great couples counselor.

Music just has a way of moving people.

Whether to motivate, console or inspire, there is something about song lyrics that can really make a person think differently.

And when it comes to the best love songs about relationships, there is no shortage of romantic love quotes to be found in the emotional material department.

Most artists have at least one song about love. Some may be more famous for singing about their exes and how moving on was beneficial to their newfound strength.

Some may sing about lost love and grieve over the pain that comes with that.

And others sing about the fiery passion you feel when true love is at the highest of heights.

For most of us, the majority of relationship songs are at least somewhat relatable, especially when you’re in that stage of being right in the process of falling in love while you are listening to them.

When you’re not in the presence of the person you love, the lyrics from love songs have a way of bringing those butterflies back to your stomach. And when things aren’t going as well as you’d like, life lessons abound in romantic music.

In fact, what music teaches us about love, life and relationships is often profound.

So from sultry to practical, these are our picks for the 8 best quotes from the lyrics of love songs that offer relationship advice we should all be keeping on loop in our playlists.

1. “Say” by John Mayer

Take all of your wasted honor
Every little past frustration
Take all of your so-called problems,
Better put ’em in quotations

Say what you need to say …
Even if your hands are shaking
And your faith is broken
Even as the eyes are closing
Do it with a heart wide open …

These lyrics offer the epitome of sage advice for couples.

You may find it difficult to say what’s on your mind and in your heart. At times, you may even hold onto everything until it crushes you.

Simply say what you mean and mean what you say.

But say what you mean with tact, because words, once uttered, can’t be unheard.

2. “Breakeven” by The Script

Her best days will be some of my worst
She finally met a man that’s gonna put her first
While I’m wide awake she’s no

11 Linkin Park Songs That Take On A Whole New Meaning After Chester Bennington’s Suicide

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

He shared so much raw beauty with those of us who needed it most.

The loss of Linkin Park lead singer Chester Bennington to suicide on July 20, 2017, left a deep whole in the hearts of many — not simply because he is “yet another” famous rock star in the long list of famous rock stars who died younger than they should have (he was just 41 years old at the time), but because his music spoke to us in such uniquely direct terms about the pain he struggled with throughout his far too brief life.

Bennington, like his music, was real and raw — about life, about addiction, about his craft, and yes, about the crippling hold of depression.

I don’t know if it’s a Gen X thing, a Xennial thing, or just an adult human trying to make it through this life thing, but as magnificent as Bennington was as an artist, the lyrics of the songs he composed have a magical quality enhanced by virtue of just how brutally real they are.

In a 2009 interview with Spin, he said, “This is just who I am, this is what I write about, what I do, and most of my work has been a reflection of what I’ve been going through in one way or another.”

I’d be willing to bet that at times more numerous than we can imagine over the past several decades, far more than one person found themselves saved in a moment of soul-crushing desperation when they played their favorite Linkin Park songs, took in the strength and security of Bennington’s literal and lyrical voice, and decided to stay here and “MakeChesterProud.

The depth of meaning in his words is all the more obvious now, of course.

Take a moment to look for yourself and find the messages within these excerpts from 11 of the best Linkin Park songs about depression, suicidal thoughts, addiction and even sexual abuse.

1. “Heavy” from One More Light (2017)

According to the lyrics page on Genius, this song “centers around the emotional weight of fixating on oneself… Chester Bennington said in an interview with 102.7 KIIS FM that ‘Heavy’ is a song of enlightenment, where a person takes a step back and realizes that a great deal of emotional strain is self-inflicted.”

The band shared that the lyrics were written based on their discussions amongst themselves about …

18 Best Songs That Perfectly Describe What Falling Head-Over-Heels In Love Feels Like

songlyricsaboutlove 0 - 18 Best Songs That Perfectly Describe What Falling Head-Over-Heels In Love Feels Like

Songs often hold the answers that we don’t have.

Music has been around for as long as life itself. Throughout the years talented individuals have been providing us the soundtracks for all of our biggest moments. From falling head-over-heels in love to weddings to graduations to birthdays, nothing makes a moment perfect quite like a good song.

But beyond soundtracks, sometimes music fills a bigger role. It can comfort us in our time of need, motivate us to work hard or even help us figure out how we feel. Music can be the emotional guidebook that we weren’t ever given.

When we look for answers in music there’s really no telling what we’ll find. Maybe you find that perfect song that makes you think “this is about me!” Or maybe while looking for new music, you find what you think is the weirdest song ever.

Probably the most common theme in songs is love. I mean, it’s the feeling that’s always in the air right? You can search for love songs on Google and get thousands of results. But just because you find one doesn’t mean it will give you an answer.

There are so many different kinds of love. Is the song about love for a person? Love for a dog? How about a love of food? It can be hard to tell sometimes.

Falling in love is an emotional rollercoaster. There are times where it seems clear as day, and other times when you are just so absolutely confused. You might start asking yourself, “what is love? Do I really know?” If you asked 100 people that question, you’d probably get 100 different answers. It’s not really clear cut, but luckily there’s always music and song lyrics about love to point you in the right direction.

It’s true that you may find just as many different answers, but you can think of it as a love search bar. Want to know what heartbreak feels like? Or how about love at first sight?

No matter the wondering, it’s nearly a guarantee that there’s a song about it. So take a look at our collection of the best love songs and emotional song lyrics about love that will hit you right in the feels.

1. What Is Love by Haddaway

To be honest, this song doesn’t really answer the question. It’s mostly just Haddaway repeating this same lyric over and …

20 Best Frank Ocean Songs With Raw, Genuine Lyrics For When Life Gets You Down

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Music for when you’re sad, anxious, lonely, contemplative, drunk, hungover, happy and nostalgic.

Anyone who knows me knows I love Frank Ocean. I have all his albums, know almost every word to each of his songs, flew to Los Angeles to see him live (I cried my eyes out the entire show) and have a shirt with his beautiful face on it.

But my devotion to him goes much further than simply liking and listening to his music. It’s much more transcendental than that. His music touches me in so many ways and each lyrically rich verse and melodic tune is significant for me in different ways and reminds me of certain stages in my life.

Frank Ocean’s first studio album, channel ORANGE, came out in the summer of 2012 when I was beginning my Junior year of college. When I listen to the album now, I’m instantly transported back to a time when my roommates and I would blast Frank Ocean’s songs in our apartment all day or when we would go to the beach and play his music through our portable speakers. That album got me through long, sleepless nights of homework and cramming for exams.

When I studied abroad in Spain, I would play his album whenever I was feeling homesick and missed my friends. It brought me so much comfort to know they were at home singing along to the same songs I was.

His highly anticipated second album, Blond, was released in the summer of 2016. It came out at a time when I was starting a new chapter in my life — a new house, new job and new friends. When I listen to that album, I think of my summer romance and the countless times we would drive around in his car, listening and singing along to Frank Ocean.

When I’m sad, anxious, lonely, contemplative, drunk, hungover, happy, stoned, aloof or nostalgic, I turn on Frank Ocean, and he helps put my mind at ease.

Despite his obvious musical talents, which have won him two Grammys and seven nominations, Frank Ocean just has an authentic aurora about him that captivates me, along with so many others.

Ocean is not a celebrity. He is an artist. He stays out of the spotlight as much as possible and uses his God-given talents to speak his truth, create and share with the public. His music …

Songs and music often become a soundtrack to our lives. It’s important to choose occasion songs appropriately, because studies show they’ll be associated with the memories you create for the rest of your life. Here is SheKnows’ ultimate New Year’s Eve playlist that will have you dancing and laughing until midnight and well into the new year.

1

“Red”
Taylor Swift

Red Taylor Swift

This year wouldn’t even be right if we didn’t include Taylor Swift. The pop-country star has delivered some of the hottest tunes ever — not to mention completely inspirational for us girls. We pick her hit single “Red,” which is all about losing in love without regrets — an attitude we should all take with us into the new year.

2

“What Makes You Beautiful”
One Direction

We all like to feel beautiful ringing in the new year, and the British heartthrobs of One Direction give us a power tune to say goodbye to 2012 while nonchalantly celebrating our beauty.

Will.i.am and Britney Spears

4

“Gangnam Style”
Psy

Gangnam Style by Psy

Because it wouldn’t be a homage to 2012 without “Gangnam Style.” Our dance moves were revolutionized with this one, so let’s pay some respect as we say our goodbyes. Because after all, maybe we’ll never hear it again in 2013.

5

“Lights”
Ellie Goulding

Lights Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding’s hauntingly beautiful voice took over the radio waves this year, and we have a feeling we’ll be hearing more tracks from this fabulous Brit in 2013. One of our favorite songs from the songstress is “Lights” — to match the brilliant lights in Times Square.

6

“Diamonds”
Rihanna

Diamonds by Rihanna

Speaking of Times Square, that huge Swarovski-studded ball that drops is a little bit like a diamond in the sky. This powerful ballad from the equally powerful Rihanna is not only empowering, but will make a statement in the last moments of the year.

“We are Young”
Fun.

We are young by Fun

“We Are Young” and Fun. Nothing more need be said. You’ll never be younger than you are in this moment, so have some fun and ring in the year celebrating youth and the beautiful life ahead.

15 Best Childish Gambino Song Lyrics That Basically Give Us Life

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Daddy!

I became aware of Donald Glover when I watched the Dan Harmon show, Community. In already strong cast including Joel McHale, Chevy Chase, and Alison Brie, he managed to do something that would be next to impossible for even a seasoned actor: he stood out from the crowd.

I assumed there had to be more to this man than his comedic timing, and after a bit of a deep dive, I quickly learned that I was right. Frankly, to know Donald Glover is to love him. Glover is a triple threat — he writes, he acts, and he sings. Wait, did I say triple? Because, yeah, he does more than that.

If you’re already a fan of his then you know about his FX show Atlanta, which he’s directed and produced. In addition to, you know, that little part where he also created the entire show. The man has talent oozing out of his pores, and even if you aren’t a fan of what he does on the small screen, it’s hard to deny the captivating quality of Childish Gambino lyrics.


If I was still in junior high, chances are I’d be inking Childish Gambino (his handle on all Hip Hop projects) lyrics all over my journal, and in gel pen no less. From political issues, to matters of the heart, and to everything in between, Childish Gambino speaks to experiences so specific, that they, in turn, become universal.

His words work their way into your brain, and once they’re in there, they aren’t going anywhere. If you aren’t sure you agree, that opinion is going to change when you check out these 15 stellar Childish Gambino song lyrics and quotes.

1. “Les,” Camp

We could pretend if you want to, like

We in love and started datin’ at your art school

‘Cause, either way, we both lyin’ more than half to the time

Nobody nails wistful longing and chilling irony the way Gambino does. He sets a scene and demolishes it, along with your heart.

2. “Zombies,” Awaken My Love

All I see is zombies

Walking all around us

You can hear them

You can hear them breathing

Breathing down your spine

Zombies aren’t just supernatural creatures, they are all around us, they just look different than we expected, and that’s captured beautifully here.

3. “Heartbeat,” Camp

I miss the sex when you kiss whenever you

25 Lana Del Rey Quotes & Song Lyrics Everyone Who’s Ever Had Their Heart Broken Can Relate To

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

She understands heartbreak.

Lana Del Rey has an old soul and powerful lyric-writing skills. She’s a lot more mainstream these days, but I would still consider her as a type of alternative music.

Lana is known for her somber songs with deep lyrics guaranteed to make anyone feel something. She’s so skilled at turning her hurricane of thoughts, whether happy or dark, into beautiful works of musical art.

I’ve been a huge Lana Del Rey fan since 2013 and when I first discovered her, I couldn’t believe that one person could have such a soothing voice! Lana’s voice is angelic and her music has a very vintage feel to it. She describes feelings in such interesting ways that I’ve never thought about.


She’s the perfect artist to play when you’re driving around on a rainy day or just having a relaxing, quiet evening at home. There’s something about her music that is so soothing to listen to; maybe it’s because of the soft melodies or the fact that her lyrics are so relatable. Many of her songs make me feel like she understands exactly how I feel and turned it into a song.

Lana Del Rey is a huge difference from the upbeat pop music I usually listen to, but she’s up there on the list of my all-time favorite artists. She’s truly a unique talent in a music world that’s so full of the same boring formula in a lot of songs you hear on the radio.

Lana Del Rey’s songs feel like poems with music because they are crafted so beautifully. She’s written songs about things like being in love and heart break, but she’s also written songs about her own crazy experiences in life.


We all go through some crazy experiences and Lana Del Rey’s music is there to tell you that there can be so much beauty among the chaos.   

Here are our picks of the 25 best Lana Del Rey quotes and heartbreaking song lyrics that are totally relatable to you and your life.


1. When you can’t stop thinking about that one guy.

“And there’s no remedy for memory. Your face is like a melody, it won’t leave my head.” — Dark Paradise 


2. When you get lost in his eyes.

“Baby, heaven is in your eyes.” — National Anthem 


3. When you’re into a bad boy.

‘You’re no good for me, but baby

25 Best R&B Songs To Play For A Romantic (& Super Sexy!) Date Night In

rbsongsdatenight - 25 Best R&amp;B Songs To Play For A Romantic (&amp; Super Sexy!) Date Night In

There’s nothing like good music to set the MOOD.

Date nights allow couples to rekindle their romance, especially since their busy schedules can sometimes limit the amount of time they spend with each other.

Some of my favorite date nights were spent at home.

There is nothing I enjoy more than having a good time with a person that I like in comfy clothes. There are no added expectations, no added pressures and no added fears. I can be myself without worrying about whether or not outside people are watching and judging me. That is what I call freedom.

A date nights in are pretty awesome. They give you and your partner a chance to spend uninterrupted time together while also saving money. You can engage in fun and intellectual conversation all while playing cute and interactive games or turning up the volume of your favorite songs in the comfort of your own home.


As the night goes on and the conversation starts to die down, the perfect combination of songs can help keep the romantic mood alive. 

Music has a way of describing exactly how we feel when we don’t seem to have the right words. The perfect beat with the perfect voice is unbeatable. It is magical, even. R&B songs specifically have a way of expressing how we feel about our significant other in just the right way. Though they can sometimes speak of pain, a good amount of R&B songs describe stories of love, happiness and triumph. You and your lover won’t be able to help yourselves as you nestle closer to each other and take time to truly listen to the words.


These 25 R&B artists will make your date night even more special as the artists’ soothing voices seep through the speaker and remind you how special love can truly be.


1. Usher — Something Special

“Baby I think we’ve got something special

girl you and me together will take over the world

You know I love you

I need your soul

So happy I just want to let everybody know”


2. Beyonce — 1+1

“Make love to me when my days look low

Pull me in close and don’t let me go

Make love to me, so when the worlds at war

Let our love heal us all

Help me let down my guard”


3. Alicia Keys — If I Ain’t Got You

“Some people want it all

But I don’t want nothing at all

If it

25 Best Quotes & Moving Song Lyrics By Legendary Iconoclast, David Bowie

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Inspiration and life lessons from the man himself.

David Bowie was a prolific song writer and performer, actor, artist, and intellectual. He was one of the world’s most influential and top selling artists who is widely regarded as the chameleon of rock, due to his innovation due to his ability to break artistic barriers and tendency to jump from genre to genre through his music.

David Bowie’s legacy extends across nearly half a century, inspiring multiple generations. During the long duration of his career he produced 27 studio albums and over 100 singles. He also starred in 27 films.

Born as David Robert Jones on January 8, 1947 in Brixton, London, England, UK, he showed an interest in music at a very early age. He learned several instruments and formed several bands as well as an experimental arts lab.

Bowie even joined an avant-garde theater and mime group and flirted with Tibetan Buddhism, almost becoming a monk in resident.

Propelled by hopes of stardom, he changed his name to “David Bowie” at age 18. He first earned his first big break with the release of “Space Oddity” which was fortuitously released in tandem with the televised Apollo 11 space launch and reached the top five charts in the U.K.

Bowie personally identified himself more as a writer and actor than as a musician. This unique blend of theatrical performance and musicianship would come through in a lot of his albums as he would jump from persona to persona throughout his career, providing varietal themes and music styles that he developed and performed onstage.

After his death, Kory Grow of Rolling Stone Magazine described Bowie as an “ever unpredictable” and “mercurial artist and fashion icon [who] wore many guises throughout his life.”
