I’m just going to jump right into this. I’ve worked my way through the decades of music with Jen. Here we are, 2013. At 36 years old, I have named most of my life’s playlist in the previous post. This post is going back to the basics and just some feel good, dance songs that make me smile.
This become the summer song for my best friend and I. Catchy tune. Good looking men. Sexy women. Lyrics self explained. Robin Thicke ft. T.I. and Pharrell, what rhymes with hug me? ‘Blurred Lines’.
Moving along. Ahem. Adele’s voice is to die for and amazingly enough my 11 year old can sing ‘Rolling in the Deep’ and sound like Adele. If I can ever catch her off guard long enough to record her, I would love for people to hear her. Though as a mother, I do not push singing on her. Nobody needs a Southwest Virginia ‘Ms. Honey Bee’ or whatever that kid’s name is whose mother is out of control as well as the child.
I have to say, I truly believe Justin Timberlake brought sexy back. Paired up with Madonna, even more sexier. Grab a boy, grab a girl…………They’ve only got ‘4 Minutes’ to save the world. These two beautiful creatures mixed with Timbaland’s coolness, this song and video couldn’t go wrong.
With Robin Thicke looking for a good girl with the help of T.I. and Pharrell, Adele thinking her and her lover could have had it all, and Justin and Madonna saving the world with Timbaland, I found throughout all of this, that Fall Out Boy was prowling around. A confession perhaps with ‘My Songs Know What You Did In The Dark’. The video features 2 Chainz, however, 2 Chainz doesn’t actually say/sing/rap anything.
Now with all of these cool songs, I have to add one that holds a special place in my heart. I am a Pink fan all the way. This song is powerful and it brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. ‘Dear Mr. President’ is a song filled with questions that will never be answered.
A lot of songs touch my heart. I have special memories every time I listen to Pink sing ‘Who Knew’. Chills whenever I hear ‘Can’t Ya See’ by Marshall Tucker Band. Elton John’s ‘I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues’ causes me to mist up. Brantley Gilbert’s Georgia voice singing ‘You Promised’ is enough to make me cry. I am, however, adding one more special song. This song from the very first time I heard it, reminded me of my grandmother. I requested the song to be played at her funeral in 2000. Dolly Parton’s ‘Eagle When She Flies’, sums up how much strength and gentleness my granny held.
That sums up all my decades of music and playlist. This has been so much fun. Thank you to Jen!! So, this is a blog hop. Link up and share the songs you love.
