Currently: On Repeat

Sometimes I hear a song that I just can’t get enough of and I listen to it ALL. THE. TIME. until I get sick of it. Not unlike when I stumble upon a new food and eat it every day for two weeks. Hmmm I’m noticing a trend. What does this say about me?!

Anyway, right now I have three songs on repeat. The one thing they have in common—well, after Juicy J and Ne-Yo—is that they make me want to dance. So turn up your volume and get down with your bad self! It is Saturday after all.

“She Knows” Ne-Yo ft. Juicy J

“Time of our Lives” Pitbull & Ne-Yo 

“I Don’t Mind” Usher ft. Juicy J

You will be saying “monay monay monay” for the rest of the day.


Currently: Spotify

It’s December and baby it’s cold outside. The good news is that this means Christmas music is now more than perfectly acceptable. While I love the Nutcracker Suite and my favorite Nat King Cole that play in my i-tunes, sometimes those just don’t cut it. For me, it’s really not Christmastime until I’ve listened to the Charlie Brown Christmas CD. On repeat. There’s something about the jazzy sounds and the childhood memories it brings out that make is so darn good. It’s just happy music.

But the problem was I didn’t have it. Nor was I willing to dish out money for it. What. A. Dilemma.

But wait – what’s that fabulous new program sucking in everyone and their dog? Spotify? Yes. Despite the continuous Spotify newsfeed that splatters my Facebook homepage, I decided to give it a shot.

I’m quite glad I did. I’ve been listening to nothing but CBC since I downloaded it. I ALSO figured out how to remove those Spotify notifications from my Facebook. That way I don’t annoy people with all my musical selections, or get embarrassed when I listen to certain songs… (I’m drawing a blank right now. But I know they exist. The sentiment remains.)

Spotify is awesome and it’s free. It’s better than Pandora because you can PICK the songs you want to listen to, although it still interrupts you with commercials every now and then. If you want an endless music library at your fingertips, I highly suggest it.

The minute I heard this song I knew I loved it. It’s become one of those turn-it-up, belt-it-out staples. It never fails to bring a smile to my face.

When I went to YouTube in hopes of finding the music video I was so disappointed to discover B hadn’t made one yet. So NEEDLESS TO SAY, I was ecstatic when I found out the video was up. Just ask my roommate.

I was rather underwhelmed at first, but the more I watch it the more it grows on me. Example: Watch the costume changes and the key changes coincide. Pretty fun, huh?

Oh, and did I mention that I’m going to learn the choreography so I can really pretend to be Beyoncé? Yup.

Regardless. Love it, love her. Can’t wait for super baby B-Z.

First, I was completely unaware Beastie Boys had new music out. Clearly, I am not cool enough to keep up with these things. Second, their video for “Make Some Noise” was nominated for VMA Video of the Year. Sweet. This video is great. I don’t care if you don’t like the Beatie Boys, it’s totally worth watching. Cameos by Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell, Ted Danson and more. Can’t tell me it’s not pretty awesome.
