You got done In the middle of the city It’s no fun Getting shot in the head when you look so pretty No sense There’s no rhyme or good reason In my defence If you kick up a stink they call it treason I’m losing sleep over this… Have we gone too far? There’s a hole in my back yard Have we crossed the line? There’s plastic in my head Have we gone too far? There’s a fracking line between us Enough is enough! Enough is enough! It’s no crime Blowing up the ocean I’m high On the bottle I’m drinking and my fucked-up thinking How long Until the walls cave in So spoilt We’re vampires of energy I’m losing sleep over this… Have we gone too far? There’s a hole in my back yard Have we crossed the line? There’s plastic in my head Have we gone too far? There’s a fracking line between us Enough is enough! Enough is enough!

Be Somebody 03:52
I was praying for some magic When everything was tragic Losing love was systematic Now I'm emphatically an addict Somehow You took away my power Now I've got a taste that's sour And my mouth wants to devour Every moment every hour Listen to me Burn it down We can move mountains Burn it down And run I can shake it like a Rolling Stone You can shake it like old King Kong I can shake it till I can't go on We just wanna be somebody We can shake it like a Rolling Stone We can shake it like old King Kong We can shake it till we can't go on We just wanna be somebody They said you couldn't do it When you fell they called you stupid Failing meant you got rebooted Now every mission's undisputed Yeah yeah yeah I can shake it like a Rolling Stone You can shake it like old King Kong I can shake it till I can't go on We just wanna be somebody We can shake it like a Rolling Stone We can shake it like old King Kong We can shake it till we can't go on We just wanna be somebody

Action pictures taken true You kissed me under the moon Looks like something peeking through And we were made brand new Over the rainbow we fly And all the little birdies Watch as the world passes by Not a pretty sight When you look in the mirror And try to figure it out When the best that you’ve got Isn’t quite good enough But we’ll get there somehow When we’re blue and under the weather Blue and under the weather Blue and under the weather We’re gonna get a little umbrella Winning losing toss the dice Horses tethered no running wild Over the rainbow we fly And all the little birdies Watch as the world passes by Not a pretty sight When you look in the mirror And try to figure it out When the best that you’ve got Isn’t quite good enough But we’ll get there somehow When we’re blue and under the weather Blue and under the weather Blue and under the weather We’re gonna get a little umbrella

Sax You Out 04:09
There’s a pathway through the storm I’ll be with you when you’re gone If you think you’re all alone I’ll be there right by your side We’ve been around this crazy world Hangin’ upside down Waiting for the flag to unfurl We came here to get high You came for something better We’re reaching for the sky I’m gonna sax you out You came here to get high We’re reaching for the sky I’ll give you something better Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out There’s a doorway to the stars I am everything you are If you think you can’t go on…get up I’m on your side We’ve been around this crazy world Hangin’ upside down Waiting for the flag to unfurl We came here to get high You came for something better We’re reaching for the sky I’m gonna sax you out You came here to get high We’re reaching for the sky I’ll give you something better Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out Gonna sax you out

Break 03:46
I suppose we came here Like sheep among the wolves Taking chances with our hearts Believing…believing Before the gold There was something else we understood Now we just keep buying And stand here bleeding Close your eyes count to ten Close your eyes count to ten Close your eyes count to ten Ah ah ah So break my heart I’ll pick the pieces up and learn to love Break my wings I’ll glue the feathers on and learn to fly again Break my bones You can’t break my spirit I’m moving on moving on Break my heart I’m jumping off jumping off Every time I look in the mirror I feel stupid I feel stupid I feel naked I feel naked I’m alone I’m alone I’m alone Yeah Every time I look in the mirror I feel stupid I feel crazy I feel naked I feel I’m alone I’m alone I’m alone I think we came here To be someone Shine like a black star Looking for love…

Are you burning The bridges of your past Are you tearing up the pages Of a book you never wrote Was it fiction or fact Are you frozen On the borderline of sad regret Are you strong enough to take it When the wall is far too high Well its not over yet We can rule the world You want to rule the world Heaven knows we come here Like soldiers beating drums They will never stop us We are rivers rolling on and on Tie a little beacon around the tree Every heart is marching to be free Are you searching For truth under the burning bush Are you drowning in your sorrow When the love you had has flown And its not coming back We can rule the world We want to rule the world Heaven knows we come here Like soldiers beating drums They will never stop us We are rivers rolling on and on Tie a little beacon around the tree Every heart is marching to be free

Turning like a rapid locomotion I’m burning like a grid inside a grid We’re changing and there’s a hell of a commotion I can’t fake it Got psychotropical emotion Can’t stop Belly up Wrist watch Oh my god Mish mash Get a life Good cop Reprimand Ocean Had enough Hot boy light me up No show Pack my bags Everything I ever had I’m letting it go ‘Cause I can’t look back I’m letting it go ‘Cause I care too much I’m letting it go I can’t look back I’m letting it go ‘Cause I feel stuck stuck stuck Feeling like a sentimental shadow I’m stealing like a thief as if love was a new tomorrow Can’t stop Belly up Wrist watch Oh my god Mish mash Get a life Good cop Reprimand Ocean Had enough Hot boy light me up No show Pack my bags Everything I ever had I’m letting it go ‘Cause I can’t look back I’m letting it go ‘Cause I care too much I’m letting it go I can’t look back I’m letting it go ‘Cause I feel stuck stuck stuck

A Miracle 03:18
Brave is how we felt That day Looking in the rain Hope in silence Could this be the one That moment Praying for a miracle Praying for a miracle Praying for a miracle to come… Maybe this time Maybe this time The hourglass will last a little longer Maybe this time Maybe this time We’ll be strong Your breath is warm On my shoulder Come on take me home Praying for a miracle Praying for a miracle Praying for a miracle to come… Maybe this time Maybe this time The hourglass will last a little longer Maybe this time Maybe this time We’ll be strong Praying for a miracle Praying for a miracle Praying for a miracle to come…

Build You Up 04:10
I heard a song on the radio There's a cold wind blowing Through my digital home Colours are swirling inside my computer This cyber space is a bubble Oh Oh Oh Gonna build you up Gonna build you up When you're hurting and the night is cold and lonely Gonna build you up Gonna build you up There's an angel on your shoulder Let me get to you I heard a sound in the hall of fame Where the walls are silent And love comes down like rain Your hands are gifted inside my device But our broken lips mechanical Ay Ay Ay Gonna build you up Gonna build you up When you're hurting and the night is cold and lonely Gonna build you up Gonna build you up There's an angel on your shoulder Let me get to you I'm gonna huff and I'm gonna puff I'm gonna blow your dirty house down...

about

"I had something to say...and I said it...lyrically and with tenor sax!" - Aria

Baby Likes To Play It is an album that celebrates playing tenor saxophone within a contemporary pop context. Aria has written songs that reflect her views on different issues such as environmental challenges as with the tongue-in-cheek composition 'Enough Is Enough', and a light-hearted cure for depression in 'Blue (Under the Weather)', adding a sprinkle of flute to the mix.

She touches on the #me too movement with a song about a rape victim's road to recovery in the confronting track 'Break'. In contrast, the upbeat and fun tune 'Be Somebody' explores that underlying human need to feel important. Another subject touched on is the art of learning to let go when things feel stuck, in the quirky uptempo 'Letting It Go'.

After the emotionally charged, successful Thai cave rescue took place in 2018, Aria was so moved that she wrote the heart-felt song 'A Miracle' from the perspective of those in the cave. An underlying thread throughout the album is the fact Aria loves playing tenor saxophone and does so in most of the tracks. She wrote the mainly instrumental number 'Baby Likes To Play It' and the groovy 'Sax You Out' purely to have some down right saxy fun!

Aria Stone is a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist playing tenor saxophone, flute and blues harmonica. She records, produces and creates original music that crosses genres and is developed in an intuitive way. Feed your head...and enjoy!
