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? 

Steve’s Music Mix: The Good Will Out

Another week went by so fast and aside from workload overflowing, at least there’s always Steve’s Music Mix to make my day.  Looking at how his player was treating him in a fairly decent way, I wonder if mine would do the same.

In case you would like to join in, here’s how to do it:

Each week I will post 3 new questions so…

(1) Go to the music player of your choice and put it on shuffle
(2) Say the questions aloud and press play
(3) Use the song title as your answers

 Title your post “Steve’s Music Mix – …” and link back to this week’s page.

Post your response in the comment section of that week’s page. – Steve Says…

Let’s pull out the MP3 or iPod, whichever you own and see what answers it comes up with, shall we?

I’m so bad at…?

–> Kiss Me Slowly – Parachute

I don’t know how to interpret this.  I think my MP3 is saying that I’m a bad slow kisser.  I don’t think I’ve had complaints yet but then that would just be rude, right?

I’m so good at…?

–> Lady Marmalade – Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya & Pink

Seriously? No comments, ok? I think its a bit mixed up between good and bad.   Oh, oh, or it means that I’m so good at singing the Moulin Rouge soundtrack.  Well, I do like it a lot 🙂

I want to be good at…?

–>Paramore – Still Into You (Tiffany Alvord Cover)

Huh? Excuse me? I give up…I’m don’t need to “want” to be still into my boyfriend.  I already am.  Or..if it means that I want to be good at making covers.  That I do very much want to do and I’m working on those skills bit by bit.

My MP3 has been a tad mixed up.  It could be because that its running out of juice and after that last song, just ran out of batteries completely.  Maybe you’d like your MP3 to give you some of these answers and join into this fun 🙂

Head on over to see Steve’s answers and check out how other participants did HERE!
