Maike Rosa Vogel on being a hippie

· von inicat · ohne Kommentare ·

"Ich bin ein Hippie und ich wollte immer einer sein." - Maike Rosa Vogel

In her song "Ich bin ein Hippie", Maike talks about being a hippie. The term 'hippie' has often been used with a negative connotation to describe others as being deluded or naive. Maike shows that being a 'hippie' can give a different perspective on one's life in regard to competitive thinking, the compulsion to work hard and the importance of money.

The Lone John Harps: The meaning behind his songs

· von inicat · ohne Kommentare ·

The Lone John Harps, also known as Mathew, revealed the meaning behind his songs to us. We are always very happy to see people who simply try to live as if they are already free and start trying to do what they think they need to do in their lives but neveretheless reflect on their own actions. Mathew, for example, tries to do what he loves to do: playing music. He decided to quit his job in order to play music as much as he can and he lived through the ups and downs that come with such a decision. This is what he explains for example in his song Won't change my fucking mind.

► Play "Home Grown" on Inicat

The Lone John Harps (Mathew) – the meaning behind his songs on „Home-Grown":

1. Song for a newborn:

Originally written for my beautiful niece, this song, and its message of hope, is a musical greeting to every new soul entering this world of ours and theirs.

2. Liverpool:

This song is about the mixed feelings of being stranded in a foreign city, sleeping rough, being miserably cold and lonely, yet incredibly free.

3. Misspending our youth:

From my stays in Liverpool, my stint in Oxford, time in London and adventures in Bristol I have made a handful of friends that I trust implicitly and care for deeply. From those restless times of traveling and meeting up, I have kept countless moments of bliss, inspiration and aspiration for more.

4. Beautiful Friend (A fine balance):

It is often difficult to tell between love and friendship and both are probably intertwined and dependent on each other. Though I've always refused to write a proper love song, I've nonetheless done so unwittingly when writing about friends and family. This one goes a little further but is still that tiny particle shy of a classic love tune, which I have so far refused to write.

5. Won't change my fucking mind:

Though I had spent years writing, recording and playing music, it was only late on that I finally decided to go all-in, quit my job, forfeit all other opportunities and do nothing else than music pretty much 24/7. Obviously there was a lot of doubt involved, me questioning my credibility and the sanity of that decision. Though it still nags me occasionally, I've pretty much accepted my origin, social class and artistic choices now. It does not really matter where one comes from but more where one is going, and this song is about people who want to make you believe you have to be a certain way to have a right to speak.
