Music Obsessions!

Its been a pretty intense week at work.  Its also made me wonder about a few life things.  I was going to do a more thoughtful post but its Friday and I made it through the week alive.  Not sure how the rest of year will be but one step at a time.

This week, I’ve already  used up my Pinterest therapy thing.  That worked like 2 days before I just realized the stress at work is affecting my energy to even work on NaNoWriMo and I’m falling even more behind.  My own sweet escape is music.  I’m on YouTube playing my Favorites all the time.

Its been over 2 months since I’ve had a music obsessions go up and these days, I’ve been humming a few songs in my head and listening to them a lot.

I just wanted to share it a little so that we could have a little relaxing time to welcome the weekend!

Most of the music is relatively new so lets start with a group I’m revisiting these days and we’ll continue from there.

LADY ANTEBELLUM – I RUN TO YOU

I run my life, Or is it running me. Run from my past, I run too fast.  Or too slow it seems,  When lies become the truth. That’s when I run to you.

KURIOS- CLOUDS

Now for a little magical soundtrack from Cirque du Soleil KURIOS. I’ve been waiting for the soundtrack to be released since I saw it in May.  The music is absolutely captivating.  The  KURIOS soundtrack is being released on December 10th.  I already asked for that as a Christmas gift..haha! Thats how much I want it 🙂

AGAINST THE CURRENT – GRAVITY

The song that hasn’t excited my brain for the past week.  I saw Against the Current with other independent artists last year (or the year before..need to check).  This song is pretty cool.  A good beat and the lead singer has a great voice.

A-TRAK & TOMMY TRASH- TUNA MELT

I have my phases with electronic music.  Thanks to a Molson Canadian thing on YouTube talking about the Altered States Montreal with Chromeo and A-Trak that I checked out who A-Trak’s music.  The music is fantastic and the video is absolutely awesome.  I can’t imagine how long it took to put that together.

COLBIE CAILLAT-TRY

I’ve been less into music all heartbreak and stuff like that in the last few years, especially when the radio is flooded with songs about sex and heartbreak.  Nowadays, I like songs that break away from that and become something inspirational, just like this one.  Colbie Caillat’s songs are almost all really happy to listen to.

You don’t have to try so hard. You don’t have to give it all away. You just have to get up, get up, get up, get up. You don’t have to change a single thing

GOLDEN- STAY BEAUTIFUL

Lovely lyrics, awesome voice and such a sweet song 🙂 Exactly as what I wrote when I tweeted it. Okay, I’m still a hopeless romantic…I admit it.

Here you go! A little bit of everything 🙂

Have an awesome weekend, my lovelies!

I’ll be back tomorrow with my Photography 101 entry that I didn’t do today.

Oh right! Music Obsessions has its own place on the menu up there under Everyday Randomness.  I’ll be organizing the posts back to their new places on the menu this weekend.

My Music Obsessions: Christmas Songs! :)

You had to have seen this one coming, right? I was going to do it on Christmas Eve but I figured maybe you all need some increase of holiday spirit! I was lacking it up to earlier tonight.  I think it has to do with a fantastic Friday night but I`ll talk about that tomorrow 🙂

Have your radio stations started playing 24/7 Christmas music? It started today on the fabulous music and it was great companion when I was baking for my first batch of cookies.  That will be up soon! It reminded me of a lot of music and I figured I’d do this today!

Obviously, I just picked up versions of the recent ones I’ve heard but essentially, I like them with other artists as well as the original.

O HOLY NIGHT by Michael Henry and Justin Robinett

SILENT NIGHT by Green River Ordinance

BABY, ITS COLD OUTSIDE by Lady Antebellum

*Note: if you’d like to hear our version last year just for fun, you can check it out HERE!

THIS CHRISTMAS acapella by Justin Chen and Paul Kim

EVERYDAY IS CHRISTMAS by Straight no Chaser feat Colbie Caillat

SANTA BABY by Megan Nicole

FOR CHRISTMAS TIME by Suzie McNeil

RUN RUDOLPH RUN by CeeLo Green

ROCKIN AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE by Raffy

MERRY CHRISTMAS HAPPY HOLIDAYS by N’Sync

Here you go! Its not a complete list at all but just off the top of my head, these came to mind especially since a lot of Youtube independent artists have done a fantastic job.  I’ve shared a few other videos before so I’m trying to not repeat and well, N’Sync is just awesome so I put them last.  It always puts me into a good mood to hear it 🙂

ENJOY! 🙂

Which is your favorite Christmas song? Modern? Classic? Whatever you’d like! :)Share it with me and let me add on even more to my Christmas playlist!
