I’m trying something new. It’s called one-liners. I’m just going to post songs that are so incredible, just one line of the lyrics will make one want to listen to the song. I’m gonna also post random art for scenary purposes.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    a few suggestions:

    “I want some slashes to go with those long eyelashes.” (Recoil – breathe control)

    (almost everything from Nicole blackman’s pen is really intense, try her contribution to recoil’s “liquid” or the golden palomino’s “dead inside” for the best lyrics in english you’ll ever hear)

    “Did you go bad?” (Radiohead – Fog)

    “Wake up without thinking. You’re the one that I desire” (Beck – Hollow Log)

    “I’ve been too honest with myself I should have lied like everybody else” (Manic street preachers – yes)

    (Im not a huge fan of the music from manic street preachers itself but the whole lyrics to the holy bible album are some of the most acid things I’ve ever heard in a rock album, this song deals with prostitution. )

    They never say to come home (Songs: Ohia – Blue Factory Flame)

    Well ,yes , they’re sort of dark and gloomy but I love the way they come out in the song.
