Music of the Week: On This Winter’s Night by Lady Antebellum

So, it’s already December and I think it will be best to start the week with what signifies it. So, for the next few weeks, the theme, of course, will be Christmas. And to start if off, we have On This Winter’s Night by the ever great Lady Antebellum! I’ve been a fan of them since I first heard Need You Now in 2011 but I admit that I didn’t or haven’t tried to hear any songs from them. It’s just that I know the musics I’d like to listen to and I don’t prefer one band or musician over the others because my mood changes and I like to listen to songs I can relate to. Yeah, I know we all are! So it’s no big deal if you don’t like this music or the band. Just being you is cool. XOXO – aLLy

Lyrics

This winter’s night
Stars shine like silver bells
This winter’s night
The mistletoe kiss and tell
Snowflakes fall like frosting
And I sit on the street
Strangers look like neighbors
With every smile that you meet

But here in my arms I’ll keep you warm
And hold you tight
On this winter’s night
(We’ll look back on the year)
On this winter’s night
(We’ll count our blessings)
On this Winter’s night
We will remember

This winter’s night
Icicle lights will trim the tree
This winter’s night
Wrapped a present or two from you and me
Tuck our children into bed
And dream the night away
Til’ the sun dawns in the mornin
With the joy of Christmas day

But here in my arms I’ll keep you warm
And hold you tight
On this winter’s night
(We’ll look back on the year)
On this winter’s night
(We’ll count our blessings)
On this Winter’s night
We will remember

The wisemen heard the angels sing
And Him like soft and robe
The king became a child a long long time ago
And the child became a king
So the whole wide world will know
What christmas really is

As for those who haven’t seen this movie, here’s a tiny excerpt from Google (because I suck at giving summary of any story):

A prophecy traps a kingdom in eternal winter, so Anna must team up with Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow Queen and put an end to the icy spell. Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.
I LOVE this movie! I don’t know how many times I’ve watched this (sometimes with kids) since I was able to download a copy. The soundtrack is so awesome, as well. I can’t get enough of this movie. It is really something else and the good thing about it is that no one can really pinpoint why this movie really is very successful. I guess this is the epitome of everything from Disney or it could be something that everybody has missed after the reign of supernaturals like vampires, werewolves, succubus, homunculus… name it. You know that we had lived on these fantasy movies for a while due to flawless special effects and forgot the Disney for a while.
It is really a very refreshing movie for 2013 and a good one to end it. In the beginning of 2014 it began to buzz around the whole world and brings out lightheartedness in everyone. It brought back the idea of finding your “one true love” and that special “kiss” to cure the heroine’s illness.
I think the awesome matters about this movie are:
  1. The heroines are not cursed, totally, or maybe just one of them.
  2. It broke the stereotypical major rule: true love is not always curable by a kiss from a prince.
  3. There is no jealous stepmother plotting the next plan to finally kill her adopted child.
  4. The setting is very warm then cold yet warm still. Olaf is a proof of that.
  5. And lastly, who could ever reject the awesomeness of the songs in this movie?! Almost everything is unique and speaks of life and the characters’ struggles within the movie.

If you haven’t watched it yet, I strongly urge you to do so right now because you are missing so much!

 

Cheers!
