[MUSIC MONDAY] 4.22.2012

Good day my loves!  I cannot stop listening to these songs!  Have a happy and safe week, everyone!

1.) CALVIN HARRIS - I Need Your Love (feat. Ellie Goulding)
They NEED to date!

2.) DAFT PUNK - Get Lucky (feat. Pharrell Williams & Nile Rodgers)
I raved about this last week.  This feels so good.  2:20 :)
MY FULL POST ABOUT DAFT PUNK's UPCOMING ALBUM:

3.) LIL WAYNE - Rich As F*ck (feat. 2 Chainz)
Not my favorite song by Weezy, but I think the lyrics are funny.  And I appreciate the energy they're bringing.

4.) TAYLOR SWIFT - 22
Catchy. Bubbly. Young. Fresh. Love.

5.) WILL.I.AM - #thatPOWER (feat. Justin Bieber)
So will.i.am is constantly accused of stealing using music without permission and though I understand the severity of that issue...people need to chill the eff out.  He's still putting his own modernized twist on the tracks.  Metallica...Led Zeppelin...and countless of other artists have done it.

MUSIC MONDAY - 4.8.2013

Hey loveys!  After an obsessive two weeks of only Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, and Ariana Grande on my playlist, I could satiatingly say that I was ready for some new tunes.  I've been listening to a bunch of old favorites and also, a few new ditties.  The songs listed below are the five that I've been putting on repeat the most.  Enjoy!

1.) 2AM CLUB - Too Fucked Up To Call
Retro-taste.  Love it.

2.) ANE BRUN - Oh Love
So...I hope my future husband will let us have this possibly be our 'first dance' song at our wedding.  haha just saying.

3.) CHRIS BROWN - Fine China
Annnd...this is why he's still relevant.

4.) KITO & REIJA LEE - Sweet Talk
A few months ago, I heard a Trinidad James song called 'Females Welcomed' which featured Reija.  I really liked Reija's feature, and it didn't occur to me that her part could be a song all on its own until I heard it again featured on Victoria's Secret's Summer 2013 commercial.  I cannot wait to see Kito and Reija Lee's official video premiere for this song!

5.) SKY FERREIRA - Everything Is Embarrassing
I find her breathtaking.  Easily one of my favorite artists.  She'll be performing at Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival this year and I can't wait!!!

Please share your favorites with me!!  I'd love to hear what you're jamming out to :)

MUSIC MONDAY - 4.1.2013

My obsession with Mariah Carey was re-unleashed this past week.

The first album I ever purchased with my own, hard earned dollars was 'Butterfly'.  The songs were probably a bit mature for my 10-year-old ears, but I loved it anyway.  I knew every word to every song, and I think it's crazy that my mind still manages to retain all those lyrics.

Anyways, I was YouTube-ing Mariah Carey videos and came across a thumbnail of Ariana Grande's cover of 'Emotions'.  I recalled highly approving Ariana's cover of Adele's 'Rolling In The Deep', so I made the obvious move and clicked on the thumbnail.  Needless to say, I was blown away.

This little YouTube cyber adventure unexpectedly tapped into the part of my brain labeled MC, and I've just been non-stop listening to Mariah Carey and Ariana Grande all week.  And yes, I know...this totally exemplifies my girly girlness.

1.) MARIAH CAREY - Honey
This is the song that made me want the whole 'Butterfly' album.  The hip-hop/R&B collaboration felt genius to me, and it was such a deviation from what she had done musically in the past.

2.) MARIAH CAREY - Heartbreaker
Another example of great hip-hop/R&B pairings.

3.) MARIAH CAREY - Emotions
Instant happies.  It makes me fall in love with falling in love.

4.) ARIANA GRANDE - Emotions (cover)
I've listened to many covers of this song on YouTube and this is, by far, the best cover I've heard.  I'm always skeptical when people tackle an MC track, so I was greatly impressed by Ariana's efforts.  Ariana's whistle register is ridiculous!  It's definitely on par with Mariah's.

5.) ARIANA GRANDE - The Way feat. Mac Miller
That kiss!  I died a little.  Anyways, this song definitely has a Mariah feel to it.  'The Way' samples Big Pun's 'Still Not A Player (But I Crush A lot)' which gave this song a youthful, flirty freshness -- soOo Mariah!
