Yourself or Someone Like You

I'm bringing back one of my favorite segments of my blog "Music I Love!" This is where I talk about music, past and present, and highlight why I think something is great, or  so bad, it's really good. Today, while surfing Spotify, looking for a great album to just put on and listen to ALL the way through while I work on a spreadsheet, I stumbled upon one of my old favorites, Matchbox 20's "Yourself or Someone Like You." This is one of those things that are relationship and friendship deal breakers with me. If you can't really acknowledge that this album is AMAZING from beginning to end, I start questioning our compatibility to be friend. For me, that's a lot, because I'm open to a lot of opinions, but this is one of those that tell me what kind of person you are. Lucky for me, A loves this album just as much as I do. Swoon! Score! But, seriously, it's AMAZING, and really the only great body of work from Matchbox 20. Sure, later albums had a smattering of hits that you … [Read more...]

The Top 10 Songs of 2012

Every December, I do this post! It's a great way for me to recap my year through what I best remember, and that is the music. This is some ADULT business. Much of what I listen to is for adults, or adult oriented, way NSFW, or just dirty. You've been WARNED. Don't come up on this post thinking it's your standard 'ol best of post. It's not. ;) The music I listen to is not by the book. Okay, now that this disclaimer is over... This year, I have diverted a bit from the standard "music" and I am also including You Tube videos that ROCKED the house as a nice little extra. I feel like, all in all, the music top 40 spewed at us was so so, so I ventured a little bit off the grid this year for this top 10. So, sit back, grab some coffee, vodka and wine, slot about 1/2 hour, and go on the most amazing journey known as 2012.... These are the songs and vids that are how I will remember 2012. 10. will.i.am and Britney Spears - Scream and Shout There is little to NOT like about this … [Read more...]

Shimmer – I <3 Music

Ah, this is one of the BEST songs of the 90s. If you don't like it, I'm not sure I can like you...It's one of those songs. It's definitely worth of my I <3 Music series I try to do... [tube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jNEucwqME_4[/tube] She calls me from the cold Just when I was low, feeling short of stable And all that she intends And all she keeps inside, isn't on the label She says she's ashamed And she can take me for a while And can I be a friend, we'll forget the past But maybe I'm not able And I break at the bend We're here and now, but will we ever be again 'Cause I have found All that shimmers in this world is sure to fade Away again She dreams a champagne dream Strawberry surprise, pink linen and white paper Lavender and cream Fields of butterfliess, reality escapes her She says that love is for fools that fall behind And I'm somewhere in between I never really know A killer from a savior 'Til I break at the bend We're here and now, but will we … [Read more...]

Say Somethin’

Every now and I again I come across a song that makes me stop everything I'm doing, and I sing and snap my fingers. This is one of those songs for me. The video is SO sexy. I remember first seeing it actually when I was in Paris back in 2006. LOVE this song. http://vimeo.com/7939992   … [Read more...]

Time won’t give me time…

I heard this gem on the radio and then knew I had to put in in my vault of all time favorite songs. Then I realized it came out in 1982, 30 years ago, and I immediately felt crazy old. http://youtu.be/vppCLgA4Hdk   … [Read more...]
