Music: Take That

As a child I was never much of a Take That fan but when they came back all mature and smooth (minus the curtains, lol) I was transformed into a bona fide fan.

Seriously, I love them.

Now, I am blessed enough that I have a varied set of friends and am not constrained to 'black music' which is an annoying self-inflicted and idiotic mindset, but I'll save those feelings for another post. And since I'm kinna hurt and about my relationships; or lack thereof. A particular two songs are calling out to me...Patience, because I need certain people to exercise some and then Rule The World which has such a sweet message.

So enjoy.

Excerpt of Patience lyrics...
"Just have a little patience
I'm still hurting from a love I lost
I'm feeling your frustration
Any minute all the pain will stop.

Just hold me close inside your arms tonight
Don't be too hard on my emotions.

'Cause I
Need time
My heart is numb, has no feeling
So while I'm still healing
Just try and have a little patience...."

Excerpt of Rule The World lyrics...
"You light the skies, up above me
A star, so bright, you blind me, yeah
Don’t close your eyes
Don’t fade away, don’t fade away-


Yeah you and me we can ride on a star
If you stay with me girl
We can rule the world-
Yeah you and me we can light up the sky
If you stay by my side
We can rule the world-

If walls break down, I will comfort you
If angels cry, oh I’ll be there for you
You've saved my soul
Don’t leave me now, don’t leave me now ..."

I was JUST listening to 'Rule the World' before I read this. New-school Take That just edges old-school Take That methinks (apart from 'A Million Love Songs because that's a jam and a half).

Lets not forget the jam that is 'It only takes a minute'! Yeah the 'Patience' lyrics strike a chord with me as well :-)

Ok I must admit to liking some old school Take That, I love Back For Good. Gary Barlow, can't knock the man's ballad writing skills!
