My Lips are Sealed
Call me a hopeless romantic, well… that’s probably what I am, but for today’s post, I was inspired by none other than those crazy emotions we have for someone we care about. Yes, you know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. Those initial feelings that get your blood pumping, your heart racing (yah house music does that to me too) 🙂 , and of course your mind thinking and thinking… and thinking. But most importantly – these emotions we so freely feel, but so cautiously hide. WHY? For fear of rejection, fear of the unknown, fear of ultimately getting hurt. This post is dedicated to those that can’t share how they feel, to those that need to step up and speak out, and to those who should take the risk of being vulnerable so that they can move forward without having regrets. This post includes a list of songs, lyrics, and images!
You’re my inspiration
Got a special way to get me to believe
Got a special way with me
Filled with admiration
I capture every word you say
Just to get me through the day
While this situation
Has made you fall apart
That you are slowly, slowly breaking
And I don’t know what hit us
But I know it’s my turn
To show you how strong I am
FLASH BROTHERS – More Than You Know (Da Fresh Remix) or Original if you prefer a slower/chillout version
you’re strong and that’s your weakness
but no weakness shall cause grief forever!
nor strength shall be your destiny
your destiny is to come by itself
so let things play according to the rules
of your life
V-SAG FEAT. ALEXANDRA MCKAY- Feather (DJ Tarkan Intro Mix)
BT & ANDREW BAYER – The Emergency (Marcus Schossow Remix)
STEVE ALLEN, SEAN GODSALL ft. MOLLY – Holding on (Stefano Azati Remix)
You’ve got me caught in a place
Panic for a minute
Got my brain in a daze
I wish you weren’t in it
There are so many ways
To lose your attention
You can break everything
But so I can take anything

David Guetta Review: Love is Gone?
My Saturday night was definitely eventful! As I was “Guetta’ing” excited to see the one and only David Guetta, I ended up briefly wearing my originally designed F*ck Me I’m Famous shirt – that is, until I realized I look pretty silly in neon green! Saturday was my 3rd time seeing a DJ at the Hollywood Palladium – and again, I will have to say it is one of my favorite venues mainly because 1) I wasn’t trampled by a sea of ravers 2) I had an amazing view of the DJ from the upper balcony & had enough room to dance!
I was lucky enough to hear the opening set by the Manufactured Superstars who are amazing DJs and also the founders of our beloved Beatport. The duo from Denver wowed the crowd from the start – honestly, I could have listened to them all night, but we will get to that later. If you would like more info. on them head to their main WEBSITE. Insomniac Events was kind enough to post their opening set on Soundcloud, click HERE to listen to and download the set (you can thank me later).
Now to the most important person of the night…. Mr. David Guetta himself. Call me biased, but seeing as this was the 4th time (don’t judge me) hearing David Guetta spin live – I had extremely high expectations for this event….ESPECIALLY after his recent immersion into mainstream music. (Hmm…perhaps that’s the problem here?). While he played the crowd’s favorites and also surprised us with a little collaborative performance with Will.I.Am., overall he did not WOW me. What I really remember most were those hard-hitting electro songs that he played…yes the ones that no one knew… and the ones that only satisfied those in let’s say – “another state of mind.”
Overall, I am still a big fan and supporter of his, but I can’t hide my disappoint from this weekend’s past performance. I did enjoy those special moments when he played his recent hits and everyone went crazy. His passion and enthusiasm for his music and fans is definitely evident in how he works the crowd while he talks to them during his performances. I’ll just have to keep thinking of those days when not everyone knew his name and his music was actually a little bit more creative… the days of “Love Don’t Let Me Go,” “The World is Mine, ” & “Stay” will forever be in my mind!

Electro Shock Therapy
What happens when you get electro shock therapy while listening to house music?
Ok ouch… this is what REALLY happens……….

The most talked about emotion in the history of mankind. It can be romantic, friendly, tragic, life changing, heart-stopping~heart-wrenching, complex (I could go on for days)…. and of course, most importantly, – it’s something that exists in the majority of our music. I searched LOVE in my iTunes just for fun – you don’t even want to know how many songs came up. So, for no particular reason, this is a post all about LOVE and songs of LOVE, some old and new. Without getting too sappy, here is a list of songs that doesn’t JUST include house music. (Don’t be too shocked) 🙂
