Ben Howard, Only Love
"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
"I believe that if, at the end of it all, according to our abilities, we have done something to make others a little happier, and something to make ourselves a little happier, that is about the best we can do. To make others less happy is a crime. To make ourselves unhappy is where all crime starts. We must try to contribute joy to the world. That is true no matter what our problems, our health, our circumstances. We must try. I didn’t always know this, and am happy I lived long enough to find it out."

Ellie Goulding, My Blood
A year ago, I dragged a friend to see Ellie Goulding at a little local theater. When we arrived, my friend commented, “It looks like a Charlotte Russe store threw up.” I didn’t know anyone else who listened to her, so I had no idea what her fan base was. Heh. Anyway, for the three people who occasionally read this tumblr, it’s no surprise that I like overwrought music in a minor key.
