Sometimes you just need to get in the car and drive, drive, drive!
And other times, more than likely, you’re just stuck in traffic and need something to clear your mind after a stressful day and that is why I created this playlist on Spotify.
It’s a selective playlist that only features 13 songs at this moment but will increase as I hear more that I find fitting. I have a random taste in music that range from pop to rock to country to Spanish-language jams but this one has light tempo songs with the likes of A Rocket to the Moon, Jack’s Mannequin, Train and more.
So on this Music Monday I figured I could share this for anyone willing to listen. Feel free to give me more suggestions and maybe I’ll add them!
Tonight’s “Music Monday” selection comes from The Maine and their new single “Miles Away” that was released last week.
The fun, up-beat jam has a killer chorus that makes you bob your head up and down and throw your arms up in the air. All throughout I catch myself tapping my foot and thanks to the lyric video above I can sing along.
“I didn’t ever want to come down, from that West Coast rush and summer high, and easy, peaceful sense of time, (I feel so alive).”
It already reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts and “Maps” and “Animals” are heating up the airwaves. But let’s get back to the video.
Behati Prinsloo, wife of Adam Levine, stars as the innocent prey of stalkerish Levine. He is UB-sessed, does the usual following, picture taking, admiring, imagines being with her and then things get super freaky!
This weekend I literally got blown away by how amazing, inspiring and beautiful “Begin Again” was. The new indie film starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Adam Levine was nothing less than perfection.
Seriously though, not many people I told knew about this movie but I highly recommend it. It made all the emotions I could feel come out and it told such a beautiful life story about growing up, going after your dreams, change and what would you do if it all happened to you and you had to choose, fame, money, career and/or love.
That wasn’t even the half of it though. What made me go bonkers and bananas for it was the music. The pure, raw, emotional music and lyrics that came out of Keira Knightley was luminous and outstanding. She is a gem! Every single song she sang was incredibly put together and I commend the writers and musicians that worked on this soundtrack because I am totally buying it.
Now this song, “Like A Fool,” was one of my favorites, no joke in the movie it almost made me cry…ok it might have. But just listen to it and let me know what you think.
Killing it doesn’t even begin to describe what Bruno Mars did at the 48th Super Bowl Halftime Show.
While many were thinking it was never going to measure up to last year’s Beyoncé show, they were right. But, in all honesty Bruno Mars did a spectacular job and it was classic and beautiful. No raunchy, no twerking, just plain, good ‘ol fashion music with a little soul.
I mean did you see his sweet dance moves and snazzy gold blazer? His voice speaks volumes and his melodies transcend any booty shakin beat. This was an outstanding performance, suitable for anyone and everyone. The Red Hot Chili Peppers added a rock vibe but we know it was Bruni’s show and I must say I enjoyed every minute of it.
Re-watch or watch his performance for the first time and just sit back and relax.
Why not celebrate Daft Punk’s great victory from last night’s Grammy’s with the song that started their comeback!
“Get Lucky” came out about 9 months ago and this baby was booming on all the airwaves. This hit song and album, “Random Access Memories” earned them 4 Grammys with the honor of having Album of the Year.
Now for a throwback Music Monday, I bring you “Holler” by The Spice Girls.
I recently found my SP greatest hits cd and jammed out to it this weekend. It made me start watching old Spice Girls videos and now I have to share one that I loved!
“Holler” was released in 2000 from their third studio album, Forever. This was a more mature and R&B feel than their classic pop hits. Geri Halliwell had left the spice girls two years prior to the release of this song and was greatly missed.
