#MusicMonday – Music is the cure…

Welcome to this week’s edition of #MusicMonday when I share a track of my choosing. I do this is conjunction with the poetic Drew Weldon over at The Tattooed Book Geek.

There is a line in this week’s selection for me rings true …. I can lose myself in music. The right track can bring me out of a dark mood (or fuel it), get me into the partying mood on a night out and in the past it’s helped my broken heart. More recently a choice track can put me in the “don’t f*** with me” attitude I’ve (maybe) needed to get me through the day at the fun factory of work and music has been the celebration at the end of a tough week … Enjoy….

I can see you stalking like a predator, I’ve been here before
Temptation calls like Adam to the apple but I will not be caught
Cause I can read those velvet eyes and all I see is lies

No more poison killing my emotion
I will not be frozen, dancing is my remedy, remedy, oh
Stop, stop praying cause I’m not not playing
I’m not frozen, dancing is my remedy, remedy, oh

Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
I’ve got a remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh
Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
Here is my remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh

Spin me faster like a kaleidoscope, all I’ve got’s the floor
Yeah, you can try but I’ve found the antidote, music is the cure
So you can try to paralyze but I know best this time

No more poison killing my emotion
I will not be frozen, dancing is my remedy, remedy, oh
Stop, stop praying cause I’m not not playing
I’m not frozen, dancing is my remedy, remedy, oh

Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
I’ve got a remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh
Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
Here is my remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh

And when the music fades away I know I’ll be okay
Contagious rhythms in my brain, let it play

No more poison killing my emotion
I will not be frozen, dancing is my remedy, remedy, oh
Stop, stop praying cause I’m not not playing
I’m not frozen, dancing is my remedy, remedy, oh

Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
I’ve got a remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh
Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
Here is my remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh

Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
I’ve got a remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh
Move while you’re watching me, dance with the enemy
Here is my remedy oh, uh, oh, uh, oh
