It’s Tuesday and it is POURING rain in LA. After some consideration, I decided not to go the gloomy route and post a depressing slow song for today. Instead, I am going to try and uplift my mood with an upbeat song I just recently discovered! By Italians Morris Corti & Eugenio Lamedica I Rock, I Sweat, I Dance Original Mix YouTube has a groovy flair to it that will definitely get you moving. Paired with piano and electro beats, this song speaks to those of us that truly get into the music when we are dancing!
If you like the song, lucky for you, there are lots of remixes! Try the Marcel Remix Marcel Remix YouTube, the Original Corti and LaMedica Remix Corti & LaMedica Remix YouTube, or the Tote DJ Remix (a little more electro).
Don’t stop Dancing 🙂 Even if it’s raining!
As I was going through my long list of daily blogs, I came across a song by one of my new favorite artists: La Roux. I’m sure many of you have heard of La Roux (hopefully) and agree that this electro pop duo’s songs and lyrics can truly speak to you. La Roux’s “In For the Kill” (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Remix) has a steady pulse-like rhythm (the remix name suggests a club vibe- which it’s not) that allows you to concentrate on singer Elly Jackson’s smooth vocals.
This post may be a little longer than the others because I wanted to discuss the lyrics of this song. Here are some of the lyrics:
We can fight our desires
But when we start making fires
We get ever so hot
Whether we like it or not
They say we can love who we trust
But what is love without lust?
Two hearts with accurate devotions
And what are feelings without emotions?
I’m going in for the kill
I’m doing it for a thrill
Oh I’m hoping you’ll understand
And not let go of my hand
I hang my hopes out on the line
Will they be ready for you in time
If you leave them out too long
They’ll be withered by this song
Full stops and exclamation marks
My words stumble before I start
How far can you send emotions?
Can this bridge cross the ocean?
This song had me thinking about relationships (yet again) and about a person exposing his or her emotions to someone else. As love is a risky endeavor and can often be one sided, the vulnerability and lack of reciprocation we feel when expressing ourselves could potentially injure our hearts. We always have the option though: reveal our genuine emotions without fear of rejection or keep these feelings to ourselves. Regardless of what we choose to do, we will either be going in for the kill to try and get what we want or in for the killing, as what or shall I say who we want, may not want us in return.
Here’s the YouTube Link to the song: La Roux – In For the Kill (Skream’s Let’s Get Ravey Mix)
I think it’s time that we have come to the sad realization that Summer is officially over. Luckily, those of us living in LA have been able to enjoy 80 degree weather for the past couple of weeks, but now – fall is in the air! As the weather cools and we pull out our sweaters & boots, drink our hot cocoa, and prepare for Halloween, I thought the song I chose for today was perfectly appropriate for this new fall mood.
John Dahlback released “Autumn” (Original Mix) John Dahlback Autumn on YouTube a little while back, but it is still one of my favorites. It’s one of those songs that can uplift you, even if the weather may bring you down. (I’m a little attached to summer). If you like what you hear, try John Dahlback – Scared of Autumn (Mebbo’s Mash), which is a bootleg version!
Being the California girl I am & thinking 60 degrees is chilly, I will end by saying – STAY WARM!
Ok – so this one is MOSTLY for the ladies: Any lady trying to get a man’s attention that is.
This song is off Basment Jaxx‘s new cd Scars (2009) and the song is called What’s A Girl Gotta Do. This is a jazzy upbeat song with soulful, blues vocals from Paloma Faith. Basement Jaxx-What’s A Girl Gotta Do (Youtube) If you like her voice (and are feeling a little brave), check out her slow cover of David Guetta’s new song “Sexy Bitch.” Paloma Faith – Sexy Bitch Cover (Youtube)!
So… I pop open my computer this morning and the first song I see is Nic Chagall feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn (This Moment). The lyrics get me thinking (about my personal life- of course). I’m sure most of us have had some type of relationship that has ended, but has left us with unforgettable memories. Sometimes these memories connect us with this person, even if we can never re-establish the old relationship we once had with them. Regardless, these moments of love and happiness will forever be in our hearts and can ALWAYS bring a smile to our faces 🙂
And it’s a bitter end to a story so sweet
Like a long lost friend
That’s never found a way back to me
And I can’t deny these memories
Got me all locked up inside
And you hold the key
All that I need is this moment
To send me away with a smile on my face
I tried to leave but I turn back
On my heart remains a trace
All that I seek is this moment
All day in my mind I recreate
If there was a way to get back
This feeling of chase..of chase
All that I need is this moment
