Music Obsessions – Christmas Special 2019

Music Obsessions (19)

Welcome to this year’s Christmas Special for Music Obsessions! We will be getting right down to business as we take a look at some Christmas song covers that I’ve found were pretty decent over the past month or so.

I’m going to not go and talk too much about any of these choices and just let you all listen to it and enjoy! Today’s a day to celebrate and probably not a lot of you are sitting by the computer or looking at the phone anyways. I just wanted to share some Christmas music and take it easy!

Silent Night – Boyce Avenue

Dueling Pianos Jingle Bells – Jon McLaughlin

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Voiceplay

Oh  Holy Night – Claire & Dave Crosby

You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch – Pentatonix

That’s it for this Music Obsession Christmas Special!
Merry Christmas everyone!!

Music Obsessions [June 2017]

Another month has gone by and its been a rather fun music month over here. Maybe not quite as much as the last month since there were some great finds. However, May was pretty awesome as well. Hopping into June, we have some good music sitting around.

Let’s check it out!

Partners 拍檔 – Claire Kuo (Refresh Man Opening Theme)

Refresh Man is a Taiwanese series that I’m absolutely in love with. I was going to do the TV binge but I actually ended up starting to watch it again…so that is going to happen probably after the second viewing although I’m watching it rather leisurely. It showed me to Aaron Yan who I realized was an actor & part of a boy band that I caught on to about ten years when he first started and really liked but kind of fell of my radar when I took a break from Taiwanese series and music.

KO One – Tank (KO One Opening Theme)

The TV series that started out Aaron Yan and the boy band that he was part of, Fahrenheit, was KO One. Its this quirky fun series that I loved. It combines a lot of fantasy RPG/combat gaming things with a fun awkward humor that worked for me. I loved his character in it. I couldn’t believe that watching Refresh Man would be such a nostalgic trip back. Now, I have a few Fahrenheit tunes in my list as well as the KO One and the sequel’s theme as well. Although this wasn’t sang by Fahrenheit, Tank is a really great singer. His songs are always very powerful and a lot of fun. I’m hunting down one that I can’t remember the name of but I loved a lot. Hopefully, I’ll figure it out eventually.

Troublemaker ft Flo Rida – Olly Murs

An absolute odd bag this month. I heard this song on the radio and remembered that I used to like it. Its super catchy and even though I’m not a Flo Rida fan, I still like this song quite a bit. Its a lot of fun.

Something Just Like This – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay (Cover by VoicePlay feat. J None)

Not exactly sure what the original sounds like but I love VoicePlay. They have a great vocal balance in their group. They pull off some great acapella tunes.

There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back – Shawn Mendes (English + Spanish cover by Leroy Sanchez)

I like the Shawn Mendes original version. In fact, its been the first song in a while that I found through the radio. Shawn Mendes has been an young singer that has surprised me quite a bit in his songs and the music he makes. However, I have a soft spot for Spanish, the language in general is one that I love a lot. I still hope to get back to improving it. Either way, Leroy Sanchez is one of my new Youtube discoveries. He has a pretty good voice and his last few covers has been rather impressive. This one has been playing a lot.

That’s it for this Music Obsessions round-up!
What songs have you been listening to a lot lately?

Music Obsessions [February 2017]

It’s time for some music obsessions again!

Usually February is all about love songs. Actually, I think last year I already didn’t do that as much. Haha! There’s been really very little music that I’ve been listening to a lot. Here are some of the choices plus I added a non-music video in the end that I’ve enjoyed lately on Jackie Chan and his 40 years of JC Stunt Team. Its a good watch!

Here we go!

THE WEEKND – Party Monster/Drake- Fake Love (Beatbox Cover) by KRNFX & Leroy Sanchez

Just saying that I’m not a fan of Drake but this mashup is pretty good. Plus, KRNFX has some mad beatbox skills. I just sad

Crumblin’ – Noah Maffitt and Jessica Freedman

Did I tell you that one of my fave movies is In Our Eyes? Well, this song is in it. I know its been around for a while but I just love it! And if you haven’t seen In Our Eyes, go check it out!

Revive Me – Ayin & AAfrAA feat KARRA

I’ve been on a pretty low findings for electronic music in general, let alone progressive house selection. However, this one has really matched up to my tastes and has been whats been keeping me going in this past week as things were a little out of control.

I Want It That Way – Backstreet Boys – Max, Alyson Stoner, KHS Cover

Definitely more of a N’Sync girl but I do appreciate Backstreet Boys music. This is one of those songs that I used to sing stupidly in my room whenever it was on the radio.

You’ve Got a Friend in Me (Cover) – Claire and Dave

I found this darling daughter and dad version of You’ve Got a Friend in Me when they went on Ellen Show. It is so cute. This 4 year old is so adorable.

And as I usually do lately, a little extra which I liked quite a bit on a Chinese show for Jackie Chan as a surprise by his JC Stunt Team celebrating the 40 years together from the 7 generations. There’s subtitles and its a Facebook video. Hopefully it’ll work.

Jackie Chan has had his bit of bad publicity in Hong Kong paparazzi but I never follow it much. However, all those years in the business and all those great movies and stunts makes him an icon for what he does. I personally love a ton of movies that he has done and the bond you see over so many years with his JC Stunt Team is pretty awesome. Hope this worked and you could enjoy it as well.

That wraps up this month’s Music Obsessions!

Music Obsessions [December 2016]

We’re taking it easy on the writing this week! What better than to move up a few days the Music Obsessions post on a relaxing Friday (maybe not so much until after work but still…)

December is usually a fantastic Christmas music post! This year, its feeling a little scarce but that’s okay, since I went all random in November. I’ll do a Christmas special Music Obsessions later on in mid-December and just let this one be actual music I’ve been listening to on repeat every single day!

Can I Get A Witness – SonReal

Dangerously – Charlie Puth

Home – Gnash (ft. Johnny Yukon)

Starboy – The Weeknd (Beatbox Cover) -KRNFX

Twenty One Pilots Mashup – Acapella ft. VoicePlay

There you go! Now I’m going to go listen to those songs again!

Happy Friday!
