Happy Monday Folks. I hope that all of you had pleasant long weekends. Now enough with the pleasantries...let's shuffle!
Every Little Step by Bobby Brown - The best part of this song is that it serves as a reminder that there was once a time when Bobby Brown was cool. True it was long ago and never likely to have a revival but that is not the point. For a moment in time we were singing and bobbing our heads along to this catchy tune without getting laughed at. Truth is that this is a fun little song to jam to which is why you still catch people listening to it today. It is a peppy love song for the guy trying to get the girl. I don't seek this song out but I always enjoy hearing it. Best Line: "No matter what your friends try to tell you, we were meant to fall in love."
Together by The Kin - So a couple of months ago I had no clue who in the hell The Kin was and now I absolutely love them. They opened up for my beloved Joshua Radin in NYC and it took all of about 45 seconds of them being on stage for me to fall in love with them. If you have no clue who they are do yourself a favor and YouTube them. They are cute and talented which is awesome. So here is your typical song about about staying together even after all the pain. It reminds me that the grass is not always greener on the other side. Nothing fancy but enjoyable. Check it out! And yeah...that is me with one of the brothers from The Kin. Don't ask me which one because I have no clue. Best Line: "Its all gonna be the same when you get there."
Always Be My Baby by Mariah Carey - I think that this was the last song by Mariah before she went crazy. It was sweet and not slutty and I loved it. I miss the sweet and sober Mariah of my youth....but that is not the point. Remember how cute the video for this song was? The two kids away at camp and how in love with the girl the little boy was? It was adorable. The song itself is pretty adorable. I'll admit...I still like to sing it today. It is a confident little love song which is why it works. There is not much too it. Lyrically nor vocally is it one of Mariah's best songs but that is okay. Not every song can be a Hero. It is kind of like sangria. It doesn't pack a heavy punch but it is always enjoyable. Best Line: "Boy don't you know you can't escape me, oh darling cuz you'll always be my baby."
Set Fire to the Third Bar by Snow Patrol - OK so this song is FUCKING AWESOME. I hate that haven't listened to it as much as I want to and am doing everything that I can to fix that without overplaying it. I kid you not, I listen to it at least three times a day. I would listen to it more by I feel bad for Pat who can hear everything in my cube. Anyone who has been to a movie in the past three months has heard this song because it is used in the trailer for Dear John. If that didn't hook you I don't know if I can help you but I am trying. Just listen to it once in its entirety and tell me it is one of the sexiest and most awesome songs EVER. I dare you. Best Line: "I pray that something picks me up and sets me down in your warm arms."
Good Girl Gone by MIKA - Again I submit to you that I am truly grateful for the awesomeness that is MIKA. How in the world did I ever get out of a bad mood without him? I swear to you that you cannot be in a bad mood when listening to MIKA. His peppy beats mixed with his ass shaking beats always result in an outstanding song. This song is my favorite off his latest album. I think that I tend to personalize this song a little bit which would account for my near obsession with the song. This is another song that I listen to at least once a day. If you do one thing to better yourself this week, make it downloading a MIKA song. Best Line: "Needs somebody to notice but the goodness gets her down."
Good Night Peeps! Luv, Millie
