Music Monday #4 - Rise Above

Music is a huge part of my life, and so even though Ramblings of a Daydreamer is technically a book blog, I wanted to dedicate Mondays to music.
If you'd like to join me, grab the graphic and let's talk music on Mondays! Talk about anything music related you want -spotlight a band or singer, a specific song, album, video, soundtrack, a concert you went to, old music, new music, obscure music, whatever you want. Tell us what song is inspiring you this week, or what you've listened to while reading or writing. Make a soundtrack for a favourite book, or tell us a song you associate with a certain character. Share your post in the linky below and then be sure to visit other blogs!

Songs on Repeat This Week:
Rise Above - Reeve Carney with Bono and The Edge
One and Only - Adele
Bad - U2
Chasing the Sun - The Wanted
As the World Falls Down - David Bowie
Crazy Love - Michael Bublé
Yeti - Bad Lip Reading of Coldplay (it's the most ridiculous thing ever that I would love this song, but I do...don't judge! I discovered Bad Lip Reading a couple weeks ago when they did this hilarious parody of the painfulness that is Twilight, and I checked out their other videos and found this one and I love the song even though it's kind of just has a great beat and harmony, even though the lyrics are ludicrous. Plus the first few times I watched the video I laughed myself silly - these people have way too much time on their hands but they're also insanely talented)

The song of the week for this week is Rise Above by Reeve Carney with Bono and The Edge. This song is from the Amazing Spiderman (broadway show that Bono and Edge wrote the music for). I just love this song, and I have a feeling I'm going to be listening to it a lot when I finally start writing book #4.

"In a time of treason
Is there time for trust?
Where there’s no them
Only us
Is there time for reason?
Has your heart had enough
Is it time to let go
And rise above?

And you say rise above
Open your eyes to love
And you say rise above

~Rise Above - Reeve Carney with Bono and The Edge~ 

If you know me at all, you'll know that I'm obsessed with U2. They're my favourite band, I work them into a conversation whenever possible, and since I can't in good conscience talk music without talking about them, I decided to add a feature at the end of every Music Monday post with a U2 lyric.

"If I could, through myself
Set your spirit free
I'd lead your heart away
See you break, break away
Into the light
 And to the day"

~Bad - U2~

What songs are on your mind this week?


  1. That was a nice song. :) I can totally see you listening to it while writing, it's the perfect song! I may have to check out the Bad Lip Reading of Coldplay. :P

  2. Sorry I didn't post this week. I slept in! And then I needed to finally get this pre-beta proof read done. (Just finished it now, actually.) I should really pre-do a few of these since I'm featuring characters.

    Anyway, I'm not sure I've heard that Adele song you listed. My favorite is Daydreamer.

    The lyrics for the song you chose are interesting. I had no idea there was anything related to Spider Man on broadway.

    Hope you have a great day!


Thanks for visiting Ramblings of a Daydreamer! I love hearing what you have to say, and I appreciate every single comment. I hope to see you here again soon! ♥
