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!!

Christmas 2018: Music Obsessions Special

Christmas is just around the corner! I promised you all a Christmas Special. After searching up a little bit of some new covers of songs, these have been my faves! Hope you enjoy it!

Rockin’ Around the Christmas – Pentatonix

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen – Peter Hollens feat. The Hound + The Fox

Where Are You, Christmas? – Pentatonix

This Christmas – VoicePlay

And for a little random fun…

I’m keeping things short and sweet for this post. Its all about Christmas and holidays and the joy from it all!

What Christmas songs have you been listening to?

Music Obsessions [May 2016]

This month’s Music Obsessions is a group of really all genres of music! The last few weeks have been full of really fun music finds and it was a no-brainer to put together! It was a massive headache to put in what order though.  Every single one of them have been cycling around my head and the replay tendencies are super high! Promise me that you’ll try to get through all of them before lingering on the first one for a long time 😉

Let’s talk more music! Are you ready to check it out? 🙂

If I Ever Fall in Love – Pentatonix feat Jason Derulo

This one is the cream of the crop.  Pentatonix always does a great job on their songs but this one is collaborated with Jason Derulo and it is amazing and awesome! I have no words to say how much I love this and just often I play it over and over and over again. I just can’t stop…

But, I have to move on with this and go on to the next song!

Uncontainable – Set It Off

Stepping it up with the newest Set It Off music! Still a really fun song to listen to! I just love the style of their music.

Fearless – Matt Nash x Carta

Call me clueless but I was reading up some info on these two artists and man, I did not know that Carta is a Chinese DJ/Producer from Shanghai.  This is a joint effort Matt Nash but man, the beats are awesome in this one! I always play this when I need to get charged up to write up posts.  It hasn’t failed once this past month.  Obviously, sometimes I just get up and bust some stupid moves in my office but hey, its all in the heart of enjoying the music! Definitely looking out for more of both of their work!

Andas en Mi Cabeza – Chino y Nacho feat Daddy Yankee

We’re dialing it down just a little in intensity into a more lighthearted fun time.  Extra points to this song for not only being a great song but the video is so romantic and cute.  I swear it hit me pretty hard and I started getting all misty.  Its nice to know the romantic in me is still around.  Sometimes, I feel like I’ve lost it. 😉

Better Place – Rachel Platten

And finally to calm things down to something sweet, its the lyric video of Rachel Platten’s Better Place.   The lyrics are adorable! Love it! 🙂

The Hardest Thing -Tyler Ward

The newest selection in this Music Obsessions was just released yesterday.  I fell in love with the song RIGHT AWAY! Tyler Ward is such an great artist.  His voice and his songs are awesome! 🙂 This one has to be one of my favorite.

That’s it for this month’s Music Obsessions! 🙂
Which one do you like? What have you been listening to a lot? 

Music Obsessions: Christmas Special 2015

Christmas music floods our stores and radios and even our homes.  I know it does.  If I went to my in-laws right now, 24/7 (I exaggerate, maybe like 18/7) Christmas music.  That’s how much they love Christmas.  We love it equally, minus the hardcore music playing. Still, Youtube always has some nice covers and mash-ups and here are a few that I’ve liked a lot in the last few weeks 🙂

Joy to the World-Pentatonix

All I Want For Christmas (in minor key)-Kurt Hugo Schneider ft. Chase Holfelder

This one’s a little different.  My husband isn’t a fan but I think it has a nice eerie twist to it.  It could be that I just saw Krampus and heard it that night.  It had a good atmosphere going on.

Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) – Straight No Chaser

 The More You Give (The More You’ll Have) – Michael Buble

Mary Did You Know? – Peter Hollens

What do you think of these song? Its quite a bit of change with a lot of a cappella covers.  I always like to add in Michael Buble.  Its been a while since I’ve heard his smooth voice.  As for Kurt Hugo Schneider’s covers, he’s done two of these minor key ones and they are a little weird at first but it does grow on me.  A very unique take on the music.

That’s it for Music Obsessions. I’m planning to keep them with 5 song selections from now on.  Its a reasonable amount and won’t be overburdening 😉

What Christmas songs do you like to listen to? 

Music Obsessions!

Its been a while (about 2 months) since I’ve done a Music Obsessions segments!

I just haven’t had much time to go about YouTube other than the random gaming video or whatnot.   Music just hasn’t been all that great also I’ve kind of take a little break.  But its time to do one of these.  After all, NaNoWriMo is among us now and music is my escape or wait, my passage into that world of inspiration.

Plus, I need some easy posts for fillers…let’s just keep this at least partially honest 😉

Songs are repeat in my Youtube playlist right now! Its as always a mixed bag.

Break Up In a Small Town – Sam Hunt

I really like Sam Hunt.  Take Your Time is a beautiful song.  And his style and songs are really great.  This one is very good also. Maybe not as good as his first hit but I just love his voice 🙂

Sing – Pentatonix

Pentatonix is pretty much amazing. They started out as an a capella singing group.  This is their original song and I believe they just released their original album along with having make a documentary on their journey to where they are now.  Its on Netflix in Canada.  I’m not sure if I’ll watch it but I do love their work.

Intoxicated (Original Radio Edit)-Martin Solveig & GTA 

I found this while skimming through the radio station for some Top 40 music for the wedding ceremony. I didn’t end up using this, I think but its got a sick beat.  I love it so much!

No One’s Here to Sleep – Naughty Boy feat. Dan Smith Bastille

All I have to say: How to Get Away with Murder! That’s where I heard this. This song matched with whatever scene it matched with was so great.  This show is something different. The cast is fantastic and the premise had captivated when it started. I just wonder how long this can keep going.  Anyways, captivating song 🙂

Konsey – J.Perry feat. TonyMix

This is my fave Zumba song.  Like, we have this routine that is super high energy.  Its my favorite that I actually know it really well, so I can push really hard when this plays.  Now its on my Youtube playlist and I play it when I need to bring up the energy level! Its pure awesomeness! 🙂

 Hey Jude (in Minor Key) – Tyler Ward & Kurt Hugo Schneider

 Beatles fan anyone? I am! But I’m equally a fan of Tyler Ward and KHS.  They did a fun little cover while singing this song in the minor key. I really like it in the weirdest way. Its a good different. Not sure it’ll work for everyone though. Do you like it?

That’s it for this month’s Music Obsessions!
I’ll be back next month with the Christmas special.
Stay awesome! 🙂

Music (and Youtube) Obsessions: Music and Comedy edition

I’m going to need a new name for this segment soon.  Sure, I still use Youtube to listen to music but I don’t as much as I used to.  Between movies and blogging and everything else in between, my other part of life is watching gaming videos on Youtube and watching Youtubers with their little shenanigans that entertain me a lot.  So, I just couldn’t not share it.  Last time, I shared The Whisper Challenge which was a ton of fun. We’ll switch it up a little this time and intertwine funny vids (that I had a good laugh) and music that I keep replaying! How does that sound?

Just a note: The music will vary in genre and style.  We have some country, some latin, a cover and electronic.  As for funny clips, its mostly from two challenges over at the guys who did the first Whisper Challenge.  Its rather silly but I like it a lot.  If you didn’t like the first one, then don’t bother with it.  While I also added in videos from my favorite Hong Kong comedian since I found some videos with English subs and they are done pretty well so hopefully you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

Let’s give that a go and have some fun! 🙂

Take Your Time- Sam Hunt

I might have posted up Sam Hunt’s performance on The Ellen Show months ago but I really like this video.

It’s All About Perspective! – Dayo Wong [Stand-up Comedy]

La Mordidita – Ricky Martin feat. Yotuel

If you didn’t know, the place where I do Zumba classes had this Flash Mob thing at a shopping mall.  Unfortunately, I had plans already so I couldn’t join but I finally found the song for the routine that I love the best because of it.  Didn’t know it was Ricky Martin but its super fun.  I can’t help but do the routine when it goes on. This is officially stuck in my head!

The Whisper Challenge #2 – Markiplier, Wade (LordMinion777), Matthias & Jesse

Cheerleader – Pentatonix (cover)

I’m not a huge fan of the original of this one but Pentatonix does a great acapella version of it.  They are truly amazing!

Employees and Employers – Dayo Wong [Stand-up Comedy]

Tomorrow is Today -Jack Howes ft. J-HYPE

Finish My Sentence Challenge -Markiplier, Wade (LordMinion777), Matthias & Jesse

There’s not much else to say! Hopefully you enjoyed it, either liked the music.  I tried to keep it upbeat for the most part.  Or maybe you enjoyed the comedy and had a good laugh.  I’m sorry if it didn’t but comedy is subjective.  I always say it but I still wanted to share! 😉

Happy Friday, my lovelies! Have an awesome weekend!! 🙂

What song has been stuck in your head?

Music Obsessions: Christmas

Good morning (or afternoon or evening, depending where you are), my lovelies!

It’s Saturday! Christmas is in a few days! Before I get to the million things to do for Christmas, there is really no better time to start checking out/sharing Christmas songs (if you haven’t already, because the radios have been since December 1st).

My YouTube subscriptions are piling up with a ton of Christmas music from various artists over the last week. Lets share a few that I’ve been pretty impressed with!

Text me Merry Christmas – Straight No Chaser ft. Kristen Bell

Straight No Chaser is so fun to listen to and this song is just cute and fun and totally awesome! 🙂 It always makes me break out in song (and dance) and everything so happy, light and fluffy!

Baby It’s Christmas – Travis-Atreo Graham ft. Colton Haynes

The song itself is warm and soothing. Travis-Atreo Graham has a very nice voice but c’mon Colton Haynes is a handsome guy (Arrow fans know that) and he can sing.  His smile at 2:16 just makes me want to snuggle up next to the fire also.

You and Christmas – Rusty Clanton and Tessa Violet

Rusy and Tessa are two artists that have amazing chemistry when they work together in these cute collabs.  I remember back in Valentine’s when they made another one of these and it is just sweet and adorable.

Where are You Christmas – Faith Hill (Nick Pitera cover)

 

Suffice to say that I like this song a lot (especially since I did a piano cover of this song last Christmas) and since I’m sure Faith Hill doesn’t need me to post her music, I decided to post this very good cover by Nick Pitera.  This guy has this incredible vocal range and he never stops to amaze me with what he can do.  Liking this one a lot!

Let it Snow – Justin Robinett 

Something a little more classic Christmas music and Justin Robinett is totally fantastic.  He doesn’t have as many covers but I love his voice.  I always love what he puts out and with a new solo around the corner, I’m definitely pre-ordering it.

Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy – Pentatonix

Now to classic music but in acapella version by Pentatonix.  This year’s most recent and one of the best discoveries is this group.  They are really amazing and who knew it would sound so exceptionally fantastic to do Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy like this.

There you go! Enjoy!

*If you are doing last minute shopping this weekend, best of luck of that! You might want to listen to a lot of happy music before going 😉

**AND, remember to drop by next week, I’ll be having a little poll on Monday for 2015 stuff.  I would love to have a little help! 🙂

HAVE AN AWESOME WEEKEND!!
