Music Mondays… 30 day song Challenge Day 08…

28 Feb

Surprised I Made it This Far? I am!


A Song That You Know All The Words to…

Well there are so many of these, I generally learn all the words to every song I like pretty quickly…. Lyrics just come naturally to me (I used to write songs! but that’s for a future post…). I’m not really sure what I should pick… I guess it should be just another song I like enough to sing along to…. That narrows it down to just about EVERYTHING

Except Barbra Streisand, but it’s not exactly hard to get the lyrics to that song!! What’s it again? Barbra Streisand? Oh and Oooohh NEVER forget the OOOOOOH!!!

Anyway my current favourite song!!!!

Warning for those with photosensitive epilepsy… flashing lights… Oh god I love it!!

All of the Lights – Kanye West

So Day 1: Favourite Song.

DISCLAIMER: I find it quite impossible to pick favourites. I realised this recently while on a date and “getting to know each other” a lot of the questions are what’s  your favourite….? Needless to say I’m quite indecisive so you might have some multiple song posts coming up over the next 30 days.

So I don’t know if this is my favourite song but I’d definitely give it top 10 maybe even top 5 of all time for me! It’s also been in my life a bit recently reminding me  how much i like it!!

Rocky took a lover – Bell x1.

Music Mondays… Week 2 (Why am I a failure)

7 Feb

Well I’m terribly uncommitted to this this week! Just a bit tired and lazy after a weekend of over indulgence.

I don’t plan to fail, I fail to plan! that line was drilled in to me through 5 years of secondary school in this stupid study skills class we had.

I got to the point on friday night where I was so drunk and felt so guilty that I had done  no exercise for the week AND was eating Eddie Rockets!! I stood in the middle of thew restaurant, 4a.m. and I began doing press ups!!

When asked what I was doing by my friends I replied “What do you expect me to do just stand here and do nothing!!” (Made complete sense to me!).

To the music…

Just one song on my mind this week and it was brought about by the second night of partying this week! It was a party for my friend Dara! She’s going away to live in London and have a real job!!

We had an absolutely amazing night! (Well I did anyway).

During the night I got control of the music because her iPod died. Out comes the iPhone to the rescue!

I had the perfect song… Extremely apt, emotional it started a trend of group singing and dancing for the rest of the night! I was very happy with myself*…

The song was….

Here

I also played this (cause I just can’t get enough of it! I realised halfway through it however that it may have been quite an insensitive choice!)


Laterz!!

*I was also very fearful of being in control of the music I worry about pleasing my audience! (P.s. Friend I am over it!!)

Music Mondays…

31 Jan

So welcome to my first post of my revamped renewed blogging enthusiasm period of my life!

The thing is, I’m very motivated and feeling very creative but it’s like I’ve so much to say it’s all kinda bottlenecking and I can’t get anything out! Believe me I’ve lots and of ideas it’s just getting them down that’s a problem for me…

I’ve decided to add a regular feature on the blog. If only to keep me to some sort of post schedule!

I’m calling it Music Mondays and I haven’t really full thought it through yet, hopefully I will develop it over the coming weeks.

It’s about, yes you’ve guessed it, MUSIC… my favourite thing in life! I always have something new I’m listening to and have an oppinion on something… So hopefully some of the things, I think will be of interest to some readers…

For this week I will Just leave you with the music I’m currently listening to, Albums I’ve gotten recently, and my pick of the week…

Hopefully next week I’ll have developed this further!

Recent Albums Added to my Collection:

Adele – 21


T.I. – No Mercy


Nicki Minaj – Pink Friday


Bruno Mars – Doo-Wops & Hooligans


Keri Hilson – No Boys Allowed

and it’s not a recent addition but it’s my go to album for easy listening at the moment:

Ok that’s a complete Music Overload! I just didn’t want to leave anything out!! (Which I did, I had to hold myself back Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy <— it deserves a post all its own, seriously ART)

My Pick of the week… Well it’s gonna be 2 Picks this week and they’re gonna be BIG:

If you’re gonna listen to ANYTHING this week listen to ADELE – 21. It’s brilliant from start to finish and you can see from my playlist above that I’ve picked my top songs so far… don’t let that influence you tho’ because there are some other seriously good songs on there and I know I’ll have others to rave about pretty soon!

My other Pick as mentioned above is Rihanna’s – LOUD! Every song is a hit… Rihanna herself said she just wanted to make an album that her fans could listen to start to finish and love every song! I believe she achieved just that! I’ve been listening since November and there’s no sign of me getting sick of it! As i said it’s my go to album for easy fun listening… there’s no skipping necessary on this album! From the upbeat and fun “S&M”, “Only Girl” and “What’s My Name” to the Emotional “California King Bed”, “Man Down” and “Love the Way you Lie, Part II” it’s a musical rollercoaster which I like to have a go on most days!

Let me know what you think? Musical suggestions are ALWAYS welcome, I’ve quite an ecclectic taste! (I like to think so anyway). I have on occasion been told my taste in music is terrible but that’s mainly by “Racists” (Emma). Sorry private jokes aren’t really welcome on public blogs (I’m very passionate about music and have on occasion been known to get very annoyed when people dismiss the music without actually giving it a proper listen! <– AH! Stop ranting!)
