Not Just Words

September 2, 2011

Wandering through the wood of words, I was left wondering…

I don’t remember how, but I came across a wordlist on the internet and some of the words on it really struck me. It felt as if, like in Family Fortunes, 100 members of the public were picked at random and then asked what matters the most to them in life. In reality, it’s a wordlist documenting the words we use and ranked in order of use. But you can see why it got me thinking. 

Free… Live… Love… Peace…

Surely these four words sum up our longing:

To be free (read Mumford & Sons – Sigh No More)

To live (read Ffye Dangerfield – Any Direction)

To be loved (read Mona – The Art of Love)

To know peace (read Liam Bailey – Peace of Mind)

I’ve looked at some of these life-defining concepts in music reviews which can be read by clicking on the links in brackets.
