MUSIC MONDAY | 12.17.2012

Happy Monday!  These are my five favorites on my playlist this week.

*The order is alphabetical by artist and is not a favorites countdown.

1.) JOKER - Purple City
My friend Paul introduced me to Joker...my new dubstep obsession.  This song sounds so amazeballs in Paul's subwoofed car and playing it on my Mac doesn't do this song any justice.  Please turn up the bass to hear the song in its full glory.

2.) KANYE WEST - Clique feat. Big Sean & Jay-Z
Songs like this make me wish I was a dancer...I would go so hard on this track.  1:28 is my favorite part in this video.
And why not another...

3.) MODESTEP - Another Day
I've been non-stop repeating this song during my runs.  I love songs that make me run for miles!  And the video is...interesting haha.

TAYLOR SWIFT - I Knew You Were Trouble
Her album RED is amazing, and my little ears instantly loved all up on this song.  It's so majorly bubbly and edgy.  Love it!

WAYNE WONDER - Caught Up
Anybody remember Wanye Wonder?!  'No Letting Go' is one of my all time favorite songs, and I was so happy about this year's new album.  It's not my favorite compilation, but it's pretty good.

MUSIC MONDAY | 12.10.2012

Time for another MM!  Here are the 5 songs I've had on repeat.  As usual, the order is alphabetical by artist and is not a favorites countdown.

1.) CALVIN HARRIS - Sweet Nothing feat. Florence Welch
I just love anything Florence does.  She's freaking amazeballs.

2.) DANITY KANE - Ooh Ahh 
I wanted DK to make a video for this soOo badly!  I was obsessed with this song back in 2006 and am clearly still a little cray-cray over it.

3.) ED SHEERAN - Lego House
He's a ginger.  He sings.  Obviously an instant fave.  Give his CD + a listen--folky-pop at its finest.

4.) KIMBRA - Cameo Lover
This video is an oldie but goodie.  I just love the candy-colored pops in this video.  Kimbra, surprisingly, didn't blow up like I thought she would after being featured on Gotye's 'Somebody That I Used To Know'.  She's one of my all time faves who totally deserves more attention.  Not only does she have an amazing voice, she also has a fabulous sense of style and is always wearing the best ensembles.  GIRL CRUSHING HARD!


5.) WILL.I.AM - Scream & Shout feat. Britney Spears
This may not be a timeless classic, but it's catchy and ALL the fun.  Don't tell me you won't be jammin' to this at the bar/club, because you will be...whether you like it or not.  Oh, and Brit looks fab!

MUSIC MONDAY | 12.3.2012

Hello my loves!  So I haven't posted a MUSIC MONDAY entry for a couple of weeks now and that's due to MIXPOD.com suddenly shutting down.


I guess MIXPOD decided to turned themselves into an app.  You can find it in the app store by typing in 'music playlist' or 'mixpod'.  The app seems pretty user-friendly and still allows me to make playlists, but I miss the ease and convenience of the online website.  Thus, I won't be using MIXPOD for my MUSIC MONDAYposts anymore.

I will still be posting my top 5 songs of the week though, and it will look similar to the format I have below.  The order is alphabetical by artist and is not a favorites countdown.

1.) 2PAC - Keep Ya Head Up
Revisited one of my favorite 2Pac songs...

2.) HUNTER HAYES - Wanted
I heard this on a country radio station a while ago and kept forgetting to look it up.  I finally remembered to do so and was happy to see such cute boy singing this!  Adorable song :)

3.) MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS - Thrift Store feat. Wanz
I love Macklemore...some good usage of the saxophone in this song!  The first time I heard anything by Macklemore, I thought it was WALLPAPER. , but was glad to know there was another artist making music like this.  I find songs like this to be comedic and upbeat...a recipe for feel good jams!


4.) NICKI MINAJ - Freedom
I was drawn to the lyrical content of this song, and I think the video is beautifully shot!

5.) PHILLIP PHILLIPS - Home
I was obsessed with him on American Idol (soOo happy he won), and I'm still obsessed.  I know this song has been out for a while, but I'm posting it now, because it's still a favorite.  I finally got a chance to listen to his whole album, and I need to purchase a hard copy of it ASAP!  Excellent album.  And he's super dreamy.
