Other Than Beauty (OTB) Post - SMASH

So, once in a while I will be publishing OTB posts to sort of break away from the beauty bit.

Today's OTB post is about the current musical TV show - Smash! I watched the latest episode last night and immediately fell in love with an original song from the show - The Secondhand White Baby Grand. Beautiful melody. Beautiful lyrics. Simply wonderful. 

And I'd like to share this song with you... And also here's a picture of a white baby grand. Stunning! :)

My mother bought it secondhand from a silent movie star
It was out of tune but still I learned to play
And with each note we both would smile forgetting who we are
And all the pain would simply fly away

Something secondhand and broken still can make a pretty sound
Even if it doesn't have a place to live
Oh, the words were left unspoken 
When my momma came around
But that secondhand white baby grand 
Still had something beautiful to give

Through missing keys and broken strings the music was our own
Until the day we said our last goodbyes
The baby grand was sent away
A child all alone
To pray somebody else would realize

That something secondhand and broken still can make a pretty sound
Even if it doesn't have a place to live
Oh. the words are still unspoken 
Now that momma's not around
But that secondhand white baby grand 
Still has something beautiful to give

For many years the music had to roam
Until we found a way to find a home
So now I wake up every day and see her standing there
Just waiting for a partner to compose
And I wish my mother still could hear
That sound beyond compare
I'll play her song till everybody knows

That something secondhand and broken still can make a pretty sound
Don't we all deserve a family room to live
Oh. the words can't stay unspoken 
Until everyone has found
That secondhand white baby grand  
that still has something beautiful to give

I still have something beautiful to give...

Tag : Would You Rather...

1. Would you rather go out with messy hair and nice make-up or nice hair and no make-up?
Nice hair and no make-up. How can one leave the house without at least brushing your hair? C'mon. Personal grooming. No comb also can use fingers. 

2. Would you rather shave your eyebrows or have your eyelashes fall out?
Shaved eyebrows! At least I can draw them on until they grow back on me. 

3. Would you rather be forced to shop at only MAC or Sephora for the rest of your life?
Sephora! So much variety. MAC is just overrated.

4. Would you rather wear lipgloss/lipliner look or 80′s perm?
I'd do the lipgloss/lipliner look. No perm for me! Hair is already ruined.

5. Would you rather leave the house with an obvious foundation line or overdone blush?
Wow! Haha! Erm... Overdone blush. Just cause I'm fair and people might think that I need more color.

6. Would you rather wear MC Hammer pants or biker shorts in public?
I had to Google what MC Hammer pants are... Haha! And yes, I'd wear that in public. No biker shorts! No no no!

7. Would you rather have a bad orange-y spray tan or really weird tan lines that can’t be covered?
Weird tan lines. I already had that when I was younger like my legs would have the sock-line around the ankle, my wrist would have the watch-line around it... No biggy.

8. Would you rather have a bad haircut or bad hair color?
Erm... Bad haircut. A bad hair color is just too obvious. 

9. Would you rather have YouTube or Twitter taken away forever?
Twitter. Too much stalking. YouTube is better.

10. Would you rather give up using makeup brushes or mascara?
Oooo. This might surprise many but I'd give up my mascara! I need my makeup brushes. Really. :)
