Crushin on Chris Brown

Yes, he once beat Rihanna up. Yes, in this song, he calls women “hos” and says he ain’t dating a “broke nigga bitch”
But I so LOVE this song. Sue me. Great melody. check. great dancing. check. cool factor. check check check. can you blame me for having a huge crush on a talented hot man!
watch it, enjoy it, and stop thinking about the rest. Music is music. Chris Brown sings Loyal, and you are gonne dance for sure!

Song of the day: In your House

Jagged Little Pill is one of the best albums ever produced. Alanis not only woos with her singing, but her song writing.
Take this song for instance. She sings about going to a lover’s house and going through his things. we have all been there. It’s lovely.

I burned your incense
I ran a bath
I noticed a letter that sat on your desk
It said “Hello love, I love you so love, meet me at midnight”
And no, it wasn’t my writing
I’d better go soon
It wasn’t my writing

JT Obsession

just

I am obsessed with JT right about now. I just love him, adore him, crave him — it’s all a bit exciting. I never thought i would feel this way about any musician but Michael Jackson. I have been only and only listening to the 20/20 experience ever since i heard it. And am still not tired of it. Then when i saw this video where JT works the black and white combination work so well, i feel in love even more. Take Back the Night seems to be a tribute to Michael in any case — the soft disco vibe, the trumpet bit, the cool subtle dance moves. Oh JT, i know you love Michael too. So here are two songs — Take Back the Night and one of my favourite Michael numbers ever — Black or white — am keeping with the theme. 🙂 have a great monday

Mad About You: Love songs from movies

one_fine_day_xl_01--film-A

A good soundtrack has often been responsible for me loving a movie. When i woke up with a song from 13 on 30 stuck in my head, i had to share the song with you. It’s Belinda Carlisle singing Mad About You. It’s dreamy, happy and about that feeling we know as “falling in love”. It also did grow on me after a few listens, so maybe give it more than just one hearing.

The 13 on 30 has Madonna’s Crazy for You as well which is one of the sexiest songs i have ever heard. That and Paula Abdul’s Rush Rush, which is not really from a movie, but has Keanu Reeves in it and shot in cinematic style.

As for a sweet over song, there is nothing better than One Fine Day from One Fine Day. I loved Michelle and George in this movie and this song, well, this song is a classic.

There is also another sexy song from the movie Practical Magic called Is This Real, by Lisa Hall. you will thank me for introducing you to this gem

Playlist On Repeat

Sometimes when you are busy or just in that weird state of mind, music is such a healer. It makes you lose yourself and de-stress — in my case it takes me to a different place where all that i want happens the way i want it. And there are no repercussions at all. No wonder i always need to have my iPod on so that i can live my ideal life. 🙂 these last few days i have been busy with a bit of travelling and have had Justin Timberlake and One Direction give me company. I have heard Justin’s album 20/20 experience so many times now that it’s burning up my iPod. It’s so different from what he has done before — i especially love the extended versions of all the songs — they have a chill house music vibe, along with a r&b hip hop feel all the while keeping it super melodious as the songs all have a central melody that hooks you and reels you in. Everyone Must listen to this album. It’s freaking awesome.

Sample this song called Tunnel Vision. This is just one song, but all the songs on this album are worth it.

and then there is the sweet One Direction, which does the romantic stuff so well. They make me feel young and i thank them for that.

here is a song i work up with stuck in my head. It’s called Come On Come On

many posts coming up. ciao

The boy band is back

Like we 90s chicks had Boyzone and Backstreet Boys, the girls of 2013 have One Direction (and Harry Styles). I have been seeing them everywhere and hearing them even more so. And yesterday as i got their album and heard it all out (knowing pretty well i am 15 years older than their target audience), i found myself really enjoying all that i heard. They are cute, have peppy numbers that talk about their girl issues (ya right, as if they have those), and their videos are endearing — much like Boyzone’s videos in the 90s. I really like this number, Kiss Me, and though i am so old, i love Harry Styles too — who else can have that haircut! i also found this documentary about them, and like Justin Bieber, these boys also work freaking hard to be where they are. I don’t care of this is too mainstream, or too pop, or too boyband, it makes a Monday morning look bright.
