"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!

Track Name: Enough Is Enough
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 defense
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!
Track Name: Be Somebody
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
Track Name: Blue (Under the Weather)
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
Track Name: Sax You Out
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
Track Name: Break
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…
Track Name: Rule the World
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
Track Name: Letting It Go
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
Track Name: A Miracle
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…
Track Name: Build You Up
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...
