My favourite songs and lyrics from Pretty Woman The Musical :)

On the 27th of February I went to see Pretty Woman the musical with my Mum and I absolutely loved it!! I have seen the film a few times before but it’s not one of my favourite but I really enjoyed the show! It was really funny and kept most if not all of the main moments from the film 😊 The last few times I have been to see a musical I have written a blog post about some of my favourite songs and lyrics so I thought I would do the same for Pretty Woman 😊 funnily enough one of my favourite characters was the narrator/concierge!!

My favourite songs:

  • Welcome to Hollywood
  • Anywhere but here
  • On a night like tonight
  • This is my life
  • Never give up on a dream
  • You and I
  • I Can’t go back
  • Long Way Home
  • Together Forever

Some of my favourite lyrics:

  • It’s like a map to your life, you’ll be lost until you’ve caught one- Welcome to Hollywood
  • You’ll hear the city’s heartbeat in every square of concrete, come follow me now, welcome to Hollywood- Welcome to Hollywood
  • Hopes and dreams are what this town is made of, so give it a shot you got nothing to be afraid of-Welcome to Hollywood
  • I’ve got to make some changes and take control, I need room to move, I want to feel the wind in my hair- Anywhere but here
  • So come along, I’ll meet you there, I can take you anywhere, cause anything’s possible….. welcome to the Beverly Wiltshire hotel- Something about her
  • On a night like tonight, just remember you’re right where you’re meant to be, in a dazzling dress I’m sure you’ll impress, This I guarantee- On a night like tonight
  • If you really wanna know me, my hearts here on my sleeve, I’m so tired of lettin everybody else but me define a woman’s world- This is my life
  • You still got some cards on the table, I swear, as long as you’re able to draw a breath, just invest- Never give up on a dream
  • In the magic of the moment, there’s no place I’d rather be, I see the wonder of the world through your eyes- You and I
  • I’m not quite there yet, I’m somewhere in between, I hear you talking, how I deserve the best, A voice inside my head keeps saying: don’t settle for less- I can’t go back
  • She rescues him right back- Together forever

Red (Taylors Version)

Red (Taylors Version)

If you guys have been following me for a while then you probably already know that I am most definitely a Swiftie and so have been very excited for all of her re-recorded albums 🙂 I absolutely LOVED her re-recorded Fearless album so have been so excited to see what she does with this album for ages 🙂 I have been loving seeing all of the tweets and also hearing the songs from the Vault!! I thought that I would write down some of my favourite songs and lyrics from this new re-recorded album 🙂 I have already written two posts which include some of my favourite songs and lyrics from the original Red album which can be found here and here 🙂

Along with my favourite songs from the original album these are a few more that I have been loving from Taylors version of Red 🙂

Re-recordings From The Vault

  • State of Grace

  • I Knew You Were Trouble 2.Nothing New
  • All Too Well (TV version and 10 minute version) 3. Babe

  • Stay Stay Stay 6. The Very First Night
  • Holy Ground
  • Begin Again
  • The Moment I Knew
  • Girl At Home
  • Everything Has Changed

Some of my favourite lyrics:

  • Time won’t fly, it’s like I’m paralyzed by it, I’d like to be my old self again, But I’m still trying to find it- All Too Well
  • Losing him was blue, like I’d never known, Missing him was dark gray, all alone, Forgetting him was like trying to know, Somebody you never met, But loving him was red- Red
  • And you call me up again just to break me like a promise, So casually cruel in the name of being honest- All Too Well
  • And I heard you moved on, From whispers on the street, A new notch in your belt, Is all I’ll ever be- IKYWT
  • And I was never good at telling jokes, but the punch line goes, “I’ll get older, but your lovers stay my age”- All Too Well
  • Criticize the way you fly, When you’re soaring through the sky, Shoot you down and then they sigh, And say, “She looks like she’s been through it”- Nothing New
  • How can a person know everything at eighteen, But nothing at twenty-two?-Nothing New
  • Took a deep breath in the mirror, He didn’t like it when I wore high heels, But I do, Turn the lock and put my headphones on, He always said he didn’t get this song, But I do, I do- Begin Again
  • You understand perfectly, You’re the kind of man who makes me sad, While she waits up, You chase down the newest thing and take for granted what you have- Girl At Home
  • And it was like slow motion, Standing there in my party dress, In red lipstick, With no one to impress- The Moment I knew
  • Yeah, we’re happy, free, confused and lonely at the same time, It’s miserable and magical, oh yeah- 22
  • Walked out this morning, I don’t believe what I saw, Hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore, Seems I’m not alone at being alone, Hundred billion castaways, looking for a home- Message in a Bottle
  • I’m really gonna miss you picking fights, And me falling for it, screaming that I’m right, And you would hide away and find your peace of mind, With some indie record that’s much cooler than mine- We Are Never Getting Back Together
  • I bet you think about me in your house, With your organic shoes and your million-dollar couch, I bet you think about me when you say, “Oh my god, she’s insane, she wrote a song about me”- I Bet You Think About Me

Let me know in the comments your favourite re-recorded song from Red and also your favourite song From the Vault 🙂

  • Let’s just say, I loathe it all! Every little trait, however small, Makes my very flesh begin to crawl- What is this Feeling
  • Life’s more painless….. For the brainless……Why think too hard?……When it’s so soothing…….Dancing through life- Dancing through Life

  • Every so often we long to steal…….To the land of what-might-have-been…….But that doesn’t soften the ache we feel…… When reality sets back in- I’m Not That Girl
  • Was I really seeking good…..Or just seeking attention?……..Is that all good deeds are, When looked at with an ice-cold eye?- No Good Deed
  • Let all Oz be agreed, I’m wicked through and through…….Since I can not succeed, Fiyero, saving you…….I promise no good deed, Will I attempt to do again- No Good Deed
  • There are wonders like I’ve never seen……It’s all grand…….And it’s all greenI think we’ve found the place where we belong!- One Short Day

My favourite lyrics from The Prom :)

My favourite lyrics from The Prom :)

While re-reading all of my old musical theatre lyrics posts I realised that none of them included lyrics from Beetlejuice or The Prom which are now two of my favourite musicals so I thought that I would write out some of my favourite lyrics from the Prom this week and then in a few weeks time I will write about Beetlejuice 🙂

  1. I just wanna dance with you, let the whole world melt away and dance with you- Dance with you
  2. Improve all of your strong points, And hide things that you lack, Cause mom’s convinced if you’re perfect, Your father will might come back- Alyssa Greene
  3. I can guess your whole agenda, You be Elphie, I’m Glinda, It’s makeover time so why not just give in- Tonight Belongs to you
  4. One thing’s universal, Life’s no dress rehearsal, So why not make some waves before it’s through- Tonight Belongs to you
  5. So hear my plea, Or here’s your next dilemma, How do you silence a woman who’s known for her belt?- Its not about me
  6. Try journaling, Or start a blog, Just end this inner monologue, Seethe, if you must, But just breathe- Just Breathe
  7. Not to oversimplify, But the scripture does imply, That your mom will have to die, How’s tomorrow if she’s not got any plans?- Love Thy Neighbour
  8. Make people see how the world could one day be, It might come true if we take a chance, But ’til that day comes, I say cue the drums And take to the floor That’s what the floor’s for- Its time to Dance
  9. But I promise with some time, That my aptitude will climb, And you’ll leave your doubts, And disbeliefs behind!- The Ladys Improving
  10. There’s not one subject that I could pass, Before you walked into my Spanish class, Was my heart pounding? I won’t say no, ‘Cause life without you was no bueno- You Happened

Top 10 Demi Lovato Song Lyrics :)

Top 10 Demi Lovato Song Lyrics :)

In honour of Demi releasing her 7th Studio album next month I thought that I would list some of my favourite Demi Lovato lyrics from her previous songs and albums 🙂 I’m so excited for Demis new era as she seems to be in a good place currently and I have always been a big fan of her music and mental health advocacy throughout the years 🙂 I have written a post listing my favourite songs of hers so far which can be found here.

  1. ‘Whats wrong with being confident??’- Confident
  2. Now I’m out here looking like revenge, Feelin’ like a 10, the best I ever been, And yeah, I know how bad it must hurt, To see me like this, but it gets worse- Sorry Not Sorry
  3. I’m my own worst critic, Talk a whole lot of shit, But I’m a ten out of ten, Even when I forget- I Love Me
  4. You can take everything I have, You can break everything I am, Like I’m made of glass, Like I’m made of paper, Go on and try to tear me down, I will be rising from the ground- Skyscraper
  5. Now I’ve got thicker skin, I’m a warrior, I’m stronger than I’ve ever been , And my armor, is made of steel, you can’t get in, I’m a warrior,  And you can never hurt me again- Warrior
  6. I need a voice to echo, I need a light to take me home , Kinda need a hero, is it you?, I never see the forest for the trees , I could really use your melody- Nightingale
  7. Baby when they look up at the sky, we’ll be shooting stars just passing by- Neon Lights
  8. I’m losing myself, trying to compete With everyone else Instead of just being me- Believe in Me
  9. It feels like someone’s stolen all the light I ever had. Like the world disappeared and I’m laying right here while the silence is piercing and it hurts to breathe- Still have me
  10. You try to smile it away, some things you can’t disguise- Give your heart a break

Let me know in the comments if you listen to Demis music and if you do what your favourite song and lyric is 🙂

I am a big Taylor Swift fan and have written three different posts about some of my favourite Taylor Swift songs and some of my favourite lyrics of hers and then wrote a post all about folklore when that came out as it was such an autumn/quarantine vibe 🙂 Since writing my post about Folklore Taylor has decided to bless us with a sister album to Folklore which is absolutely amazing so I thought I would list my favourite songs and lyrics from the album 🙂

Favourite songs:

  1. Champagne Problems
  2. Gold Rush
  3. Tolerate It
  4. No Body, No Crime
  5. Long Story Short

However I’m sure this list will change as I listen to the album more 🙂

My Favourite lyrics from Evermore:

  1. I wait by the door like I’m just a kid, Use my best colours for your portrait, Lay the table with the fancy shit, And watch you tolerate it- Tolerate It
  2. “This dorm was once a madhouse” I made a joke, “Well, it’s made for me”- Champagne Problems
  3. Good thing my daddy made me get a boat and licence when I was fifteen, And I’ve cleaned enough houses to cover up a scene, Good thing Este’s gonna swear she was with me- No Body, No Crime
  4. “She would’ve made such a lovely bride What a shame she’s fucked in the head,” they said But you’ll find the real thing instead She’ll patch up your tapestry that I shred- Champagne Problems
  5. Rough on the surface, but you cut through like a knife- Willow
  6. What must it be like to grow up that beautiful?- Gold Rush
  7. I made you my temple, my mural, my sky, Now I’m begging for footnotes in the story of your life, Drawing hearts in the byline- Tolerate It
  8. From the dress I wore at midnight, leave it all behind.- Happiness
  9. Ooh, you’rе a queen sellin’ dreams, sellin’ makeup and magazines- Dorothea
  10. If the shoe fits, walk in it ’til your high heels break- Long Story Short
