MidNight Gems Vol.7 - Undiscovered, Underrated and Forgotten Songs - "All About the Lyrics & the Light"



For those of you that are new to my MidNight Gems series. Welcome to this nightly trip on which we will uncover & recover some beautiful songs.

For tonight´s trip I planned a sweet voiced lyrical journey...let´s see if I can stick to the plan for once.

When I found this song I just could not stop playing it, this is mystical music magic at it´s best....like a Siren´s call.

1. Magdalena Wolk - No Sunshine Girl

I'm singing at a funeral tomorrow
For a kid a year older than me
And I've been talking to his dad, it makes me so sad
When I think too much about it I can't breathe

I do not wanna bring everybody down, but my sweet lord how can I not share this with you. I truly felt choked after those lines.

2. Phoebe Bridgers - Funeral

Let´s get out of this immense sad madness and push the dark skies away slowly moving into the light.

3. Nick Cave and Warren Ellis - "Push the Sky Away"

If you are a RHCP fan (Nick is not) this might be worth your while.

Now that we pushed away a bit of that darkness and gloom, let´s step into the light.

4. In This Moment - Into The Light

My sweet lord, that is one epic underrated voice. Sorry friends, I can´t help it, I will be pulling you back into the paralyzing darkness of endless winter.

5. Jamie Bower - Paralysed (Live From The Alter)

Can I get away with adding one more winter song, I think it suits the style of this trip so well.....?
Yes I ve done some Tori and Nick before, but both are part of my personal artist top 10.....

6. Tori Amos - Winter

Okay enough is enough let´s get out of this emotional roller-coaster...Life is not always about swimming against the tide.

7. Milow - Against the Tide

Sometimes you we can make it easier on yourself, if we would just follow the river of life.

8. Triggerfinger - I Follow Rivers

Just flowing down the that endless river, beholding the relativity of life as we drift by....
Letting go will set us free.

9. Hans Zimmer Ft. Czarina Russel - Now We Are Free

What the fluff are midnight gems?

Somewhere lost in time, trying to escape out of the rabbit hole back into the rat race there is a vacuum..... that´s the place where midnight gems are found.

My Midnight Gems will try to uncover & recover those beautiful songs that nobody ever noticed, or might have been forgotten.

Who the fluff am I?

Being a former DJ playing about everything and having a uncompleted study of radio journalism I have been wanting to do this for years....Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.

Hope you enjoyed this slightly confronting wave of amazing music and you still feel like joining me on the next trip as vol 9. of Midnight Gems is coming soon.
