Day 15 – A Song That Describes You

I reckon there are striking similarities to me in this song…

Mardy Bum – Arctic Monkeys

Day 16 – A Song That You Used to Love But Now Hate

Like I said hate is a strong word… but a aong I loved and got sick of too quick… hmmm….

Well I actually still like this song… I suppose it just reminds me of a time in my life I’m now over…

Tribute – Tenacious D



Day 17 – A Song That You Hear Often on The Radio

S & M – Rihanna

Day 18 – A Song That You Wish You Heard on The Radio

I live this song… bit of controversy over it but it’s just a bit of fun… nothing too serious…

Just the way you are (Drunk at the bar) – Brian McFadden


Day 19 – A Song From Your Favorite Album

Favourites favourites favourites…. I don’t have a favourite album I don’t think… There’re loads of albums I can just go to and love every song… Ah I dunno…

Street Lights – Kanye West


Day 20 – A Song That You Listen to When You’re Angry

Loads of these… what to pick…

I am Not A Robot – Marina and the Diamonds


Music Mondays… 30 day song Challenge Day 08…

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

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:

Rihanna – Loud

Currently on my playlist:

1. Hello – Martin Solveig & Dragonette

2. Price Tag – Jessie J Feat. B.O.B.

3. Rolling in the deep – Adele

4. Rumour has it – Adele

5. Someone like you – Adele

6. Somewhere in Brooklyn – Bruno Mars

11. Won’t be Long – Keri Hilson & Timbaland

12. One Night Stand – Keri Hilson Feat. Chris Brown

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!)

Run Away Fast as You Can…

THIS

Is absolutely amazing… It was filmed in Prague over the period of four days in the Summer of 2010

I don’t claim to know much about art but I think this is it. I just think it was an all round great production and I was completely sucked into it for the entire 35 minutes. I was left wanting more and that’s always a good sign.

Selita Ebanks the Phoenix in the film is also pretty amazing

Now I just can’t wait for his next album which is due November 22nd

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

It looks promising with plenty of greats featuring on it! “All of the lights” for me is the track to watch even just from the breif appearance in the runaway film.

I was never really into Kanye until 808s & Heartbreak but I just think he’s gotten so much better as time has gone on… or maybe I just never gave him enough of a chance to begin with I’ve got his back catalogue from  my best friend who’s obsessed with him so I’ll give them a proper listen and see how I feel.

I’m really looking forward to november. A great month for music a lot of my favourite artists releasing their new albums!! Happy music days ahead!

Kanye West…Funny Guy…

2yvjno7

It’s funny how things happen, I never liked Kanye west, kinda liked his music (the popular stuff) never liked him, he seemed like an absolute tool… Even now! hearing some of the stuff he comes out with makes me just stare blankly in disbelief… My personal favourite being the “I want less fans” fiasco… Somebody who says that doesn’t deserve the Millions fans he has…

Anyway It all started with Love Lockdown, It was like nothing I had ever heard before… I fell in love with the song… It was fresh, new, innovative. I thought, “One off” It wouldn’t be the start of a trend like…

So then i was on a chart music buzz and the day Kanye’s New Album was released i decided sure why not €9.99, iTunes, Bargain…

So came  808’S & HEARTBREAK

I Listened and was hooked, It was like a completely different person a new artist I’d just discovered, breaking the boundaries of music, blurring the Lines…

I found myself at one point last November thinking, only Kanye understands me….

I was Just listening to the album today on my way home and realising that’s some seriously good music… Every Song on the album is Brilliant (I love those albums). There’s something about the Lyrics that make me feel like I’m looking into Kanye’s actual soul at some points (a little melodramatic i know)

At some points in the album it’s like he’s actually going INSANE

e.g. Robocop…

“Oh you kidding me,
You must be joking,
Or you are smoking
Oh, oh, you kidding me,
Oh you kidding me, ha ha, that was a good one,
Your first good one in a while
Your first good on in a while
You need to stop it now,
You need to stop it now,
Ooh you need to stop it now

I identify with the album even more now in my current state of heartbreak, but i just wanted to share with you the Amazingness! of this album and the beginning of my opinion turnaround of K-West…(It’s not over not over not over not over yet)

This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
