Another Tunesday is here again. They do roll around quickly don't they?!
Today's pick comes in the form of the chill-yet-somehow-confusingly-upbeat 'Hideaway.' Over the past month and a half or so, the band Chasing Grace has been in relatively heavy rotation*, especially during the four all-nighters I've pulled in as many weeks. Going to be a bit cheeky here and say that this is one of those instances where I prefer the cover to the original (except for the dancing, they make the running man look boss). What do you think?
*Check out my playlist on the Bits and Bobs page to see what else I've been listening to!
Something I did long before having to pick one or two Tunesday posts each week, is hearing a song somewhere -playing in a shop, as the background music in a scene of a movie or show, blasting from someone's car radio - and trying to remember or write down a few lines of the song for a later time when I could search them and find out its name. Having only recently acquired the Shazam app (which takes away a bit of the enjoyment - instant gratification generation and all that), I am still very much in the habit of doing this. You can guess where this is going yes? That's how today's pick was discovered, setting the scene of some show (I forget which now) I was watching a few days ago.
This song hits me right where it hurts because as it stands I likely won't be able to go home for at least another year, at which time it will be three years since I've been for a visit. This is upsetting to me, but not for the [first] reason you may think. It's not because I miss my family, we've seen each other recently-ish. It's not because I miss my bed or couch - though our couch is pretty comfy. It's not because I miss the food, that ranks a very close second on the list. It's because I'm having beach withdrawal. :/
In its defence, England is making a pretty good go of it weather-wise this summer.
Until next time...
Because I love you, but also because I missed last week, you get a two-fer today!
Because I'm super tired, it's a lazy two-fer, i.e. two versions of the same song.
Horror of horrors today folks, I am in the library! O_o This is a huge deal for me. Not sure how productive I'm being as it's this entry that's getting written as opposed to any soon-due essays, but hey!
Hope you're having a great Tunesday wherever you are! (:
Being a bit cheeky today with the song pick. Similarly to the first Tunesday of the year, today's pick is actually a whole bunch (not sure what that is in metric) of songs! Ed Sheeran is set to release a new album in a few weeks, and recently played a live show in Dublin, Ireland performing both old and new songs of his.
His voice ≈ #swoon. His music is such easy listening, it's definitely helping make bareable the thousands of words I should be writing today. I fully recommend going back to the beginning of the video and listening to the entire video, "Little Bird" is just the song that caught my ear's fancy today.
So yeah, 'tis it! Enjoy! (:
Tunesday again, and today's pick is a sick remix of Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop." From the name of the channel alone - Cats Go Boom - you know it will be good.
I liked the original version as well as this accapella cover with Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, so an electro remix was likely to go down pretty well. Who doesn't love a good beat drop right?
This should add a little fun to your day, but if it doesn't, have no fear, you can try again with OrangeMouth's Tunesday post!
Until next time...
Happy Tunesday people!
I shall break down for you what happens in today's video. These guys, both individually and jointly SLAY this song. The end. Merry Christmas.
DISCLAIMER: I'm not down with theft.
"But M-J," you say, "it's only love songs tonight!"
Still not cool... though ridiculously catchy.
Hola people! Hope you've enjoyed a great Easter weekend, and hopefully today's video will help make going back to work/school today even the tiniest squish easier.
Quick breakdown. Popcaan: Jamaican dancehall artist. Lucas DiPasquale: Not Popcaan. DiPasquale however is all kinds of smooth with his mashup of some of Popcaan's songs. From the moment he starts singing, you're sat there looking kind of like "O_o." Basically the hashtag #nailedit 100% applies here.
Would say "Enjoy," but that's pretty much automatic I think!
Until next time...
Those aren't the words... Tunesday 15th April, 2014: Sesame Street Theme Song - Jimmy Fallon, Sesame Street, & The Roots
"To where the air is cleeeeean," are definitely not the right lyrics to the Sesame Street theme song, but are also definitely the words I belted out this morning while watching today's Tunesday choice. Going to go with my having lived in China for a year as the cause for that slip-up.
Now you may have been thinking that this is a strange pick for a Tunesday post, but that would also indicate that you don't know me, so thanks for checking out the website! In all honesty, this was not the song I had originally intended to go with -that was Mali Music's "Beautiful," however it ties in so well with what we do over at OrangeMouth, that I conceded it to that blog for its Tunesday post. Check it out here.
Sesame Street was easily one of my favourite shows growing up. I would get upset if we got home from school too late to watch it for probably a little longer than is acceptable (so last week). Now that I'm [claiming to be] a grown-up, the days of watching Sesame Street are far behind me... I've subscribed to their Youtube channel. It is a perfect mixture of clips you grew up on, and skits and shorts from now. Make sure you have copious amounts of free time before you check out their channel!
As for Jimmy Fallon! Love this dude! He's been awesome since SNL, but has really come into his own since being on late night. The Tonight Show has been taken to an entirely new level of hilarity. Hmmmm, starting to sound proper old now, gonna stop while I'm behind.
TLDR: Subscribe to the Sesame Street and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon Youtube channels. #SOworthit
The combination of Jimmy Fallon, The Roots, and Sesame Street is a day making game changer, enjoy! (:
Until next time...
