My Recent Music Obsessions!

Music has been one of the many ways I’ve been keeping sane aside from the Pinterest therapy that I posted about yesterday!

Its been a while since I’ve posted about my music obsessions. This week, I’ve been really in that phase where I’ve been listening on repeat and/or watching some Youtube vids!

I just feel like this has been way overdue, don’t you?

Ready to get musical with me? Lets go!

First up, we have the single from OneRepublic called Love Runs Out.

I haven’t been a huge fan of OneRepublic until I heard Counting Stars.  Not that I thought they had bad songs because they are all very catchy but they just get on my nerves after a while.  Try turning on the radio and hearing Apologize every single time.  That really does kill any song.  Either way, this song is awesome: nice beat, cool lyrics.  I just can’t help but get all energized! 🙂 No matter how tired I am, I’ll get up and start dancing in my silly way. But  my only audience is my cat so it doesn’t matter 😉

By the way, how cool is that piano? I love it!

Next, we have the very awesome Alex Goot who I love and has a new album Wake Up Call coming out.  I’m so excited! I have it pre-ordered so its just a matter of waiting for it to be released and getting it in the mail.  Maybe he’ll have another tour..who knows? He’s posted up two songs from the album and they have been so fun.  Here’s the headline one since its the same name as the album.

I’m not so much a fan of the video but Alex is really talented and I find him just so amazing.  I like a lot of his music and he rarely has any misses.  Plus, he plays like a ton of instruments and he can pretty much cover a song all by himself.  I hope one day to at least be able to add on guitar and drums to my list of talents.  But I’ve also learned that getting older and learning anything takes so much more time and patience.

After that is a cover by Tiffany Alvord and Alex G of Problem by Ariana Grande. I’m not very familiar with the original but this one is so cute. And they make it kind of friendship and its pretty cool that way.

This one is newer so its a growing obsession 😉 I’m noticing a pattern.  Everything is just so happy to listen to!

Finally, I know you probably don’t have time for a million songs so this one is the most meaningful one, I think.  I saw these two young boys on Ellen Show and then went to search out the actual performance on Britain’s Got Talent. They are called Bars & Melody and the message is awesome, not to mention they are both very talented.

It has a whole bunch of talking in the beginning which is pretty funny with the judges but if you want to just hear their performance, it actually starts at 2:35.

Wasn’t it impressive? Talent comes in all ages, right? Thats the perfect example that some kids are great because he’s so young but he knows how to change something negative and let it out in a positive creative way and finding a way to help himself.  Bullying is an issue thats been brought up very frequently in the last few years (I find) and to hear it from someone young and actually going through it makes this song very genuine. It kind of brought tears to my eyes.

Those are my current music obsessions! I’m still very much in love with Chromeo’s Jealous (I Ain’t With It) but I already shared that HERE! I’ve been thinking that these Pinterest therapy and music obsessions post deserve their own spot on the menu.  I’ll have to figure that out 😉

What are your current music obsessions? 

This Week: Music Obsessions!

I think I’m going to make this a regular segment soon! 🙂 I’m not sure how many of you enjoy it but I love sharing the music that I love!

I’ve been doing it every 2 months or so and well, these days, I’ve taken a break on TV and even slowed down a little with movies (a bit) so what do I turn to? Music!

Lets start with one that I had posted before.  This is the official video of Love Don’t Die from The Fray.

I’ve been crazy obsessed with this song.  Like, at least 8 times a day.  The video is pretty awesome with Candice Accola from Vampire Diaries and a pretty cool bar brawl.

Next up, its a little Christmas spirit with Kurt Schneider, Max Schneider and Macy Kate with their cover of Jingle Bell Rock.

I always love the whole tech videos and this year its with Samsung phones.  I never delve deep in how to make phones do all these cool things but apparently, it can do that. 🙂

I’ve been going out less for a lot of many reasons but one of them being that I need to save up money for my future. So, in the instances that I do open my tablet and dive in the Video Hub, I always land on Step Up 3D and thats when I realized that I probably should put this song on my faves in Youtube.

I love Step Up 3D because of Moose and the high energy dances.  Always picks up my mood 🙂

This next one by Daniel Powter called Cupid may have been out for a year but I only heard it on the radio this week. The lyrics are super cute and just so romantic.

Sometimes, its nice to just get all romantice and lovey-dovey.  Wait! Forget it, I’m always like that 😉

Last one is from the awesome EEG Music Hong Kong that put out a bunch (like 20+) videos of my ultimate favorite singer-actor, Nicholas Tse‘s past and present music throughout all the years! I’m going to pull out all of his albums and rip it onto my computer I think 🙂 Here’s one thats high energy and quite cool called 400 GIG!

Nicholas is total awesomeness! Thats from earlier in his career but as his music progresses and he starts doing a lot more of the production work himself, it starts getting a whole lot more original and good in its own way.  Love it!

Music and everything is fun but I’ve been hooked on watching The Ellen Show snippets on YouTube and this week, this one made me laugh so hard!

I laugh now but my Candy Crush obsession is growing as well….Plus, I never knew that Adam Levine was funny. Made my day!

I’ll be back with my personal post a bit later!

Have a good Sunday morning! 🙂
