Music Tuesdays: U + Me = Us

These posts are getting later and later at night….Struggles.

ANYWAYS, I’m a little tired of the music that’s on the radio. It really is all starting to sound the same. Like I’m obsessed with the dance tracks and all, but I need something new in my life. Or, maybe I just need some good ol’ bubblegum Pop. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Below are some of my favorite Pop songs of yesteryear, and I have had ย them all on constant repeat since Sunday. Hollers!

2gether – “U + Me = Us (Calculus)”

I remember when I had the biggest crush on Chad. HA! I don’t even think 2gether was a real group…Regardless, the breakdown in this song goes hard! If only calculus was really that simple…

BB Mak’s “Back Here”ย 

British boy bands! I really do love this song.

Britney Spears’ “Crazy”ย 

I can’t believe this came out over a decade ago. That means I’m old and Britney Spears is ancient….haha Okay, maybe not really, but that would explain why her dancing abilities have flown out the window…

Jordan Knight’s “Give It To You”

I didn’t know what this song was really about until I got much older. lol I’m glad that Jordan Knight got his life back together though with New Kids. Remember when he was on VH1’s Surreal Life? Those were rough times.

Music Tuesdays: I’m Starry Eyed

For the past few weeks, I have been doing nothing, but listening to UK artist Ellie Goulding.

I first heard Goulding’s song “Starry Eyed” while listening to mashups on fratmusic.com. Now, I am in love with this girl’s music. So, instead of writing a book about Ellie Goulding, I’m just going to share a few videos with you all.

Ellie Goulding’s “Starry Eyed”ย 

Although Starry Eyed technically came out last year, a U.S. version of the song/video was released last week. I guess it’s time for Goulding to enter the U.S. market. I hope she does well! Watch the U.S. version of the video below.

Which one do you prefer – the UK or US version? I personally like the UK version. It always makes me want to dance!

If Starry-Eyed isn’t your cup of tea, there is always the single “Lights” to fall in love with. Check out “Lights” below!

I LOVE listening to “Lights” at work. It gets me through my monotonous days…

With that said, Ellie Goulding is very versatile as an artist. Her cover of Elton John’s “Your Song” is simply beautiful. It’s a hard song to sing, and I think that she does an excellent job. She truly makes “Your Song” her own. Listen to Ellie’s version below!

What do you think?

Personally, I’m really feeling the artists coming out of the UK. They tend to have very unique voices and sounds. It makes me smile. If you’re getting as into Ellie Goulding as I am, then you definitely need to check out her other videos on YouTube. She does some mean acoustic versions of her songs. ย I can’t believe I just found out about her….But, I guess that’s how the world works. You can’t know about every singer all the time. They’re too many! Nonetheless, I’m glad I discovered her. Awesomeness! ๐Ÿ™‚

Music Tuesdays: Can We Call This Music?

Apparently, the trending topic of the day has been thirteen year old Rebecca Black. For those of you, who are in your own little worlds, and don’t know who this youngster is, Rebecca is the singer of the ANNOYINGLY catchy song “Friday.” The song is literally the worst song I have possibly ever heard. Not only are the lyrics terrible, but Rebecca’s voice is unfortunately not the most pleasant to listen to either.

Now, some people are saying that talking badly about a thirteen year old girl’s music is unacceptable. However, I argue that the more bloggers like me talk about Rebecca, the more popular the little sunspot becomes. And, the more popular she is, the more popular her music will become. Don’t get me wrong though. I’m definitely NOT trying to promote this one. lol With that said, props to Rebecca for getting her song on iTunes and for having over 30 million views on YouTube.

Why can’t I come up with something horrendously viral? Why??? lol

If you haven’t heard “Friday,” then click on this link and watch the vid —>Rebecca Black – Friday

Unbearable, yet catchy, right? lol

Emily Osment

Usually, I’m all for the sugar-coated bubble gum wrapped music, but this is a bit much even for me…With that said, there is always a Pop song catching my ear. This week it’s Emily Osment’s “Lovesick.” Watch below!

Here’s the link just in case —-> Emily Osment – Lovesick

Although the video is a few months old, this song is currently my ish! Some of you may recognize Emily from Hannah Montana. I think she has done a good job getting away from the Disney movement. Her video is unique and fits perfectly with the song. I’m loving the lights too. Even if you’re not into the song, you can’t deny the lights! lmao Get it Emily! ๐Ÿ˜‰

p.s. People talked about how Emily was a flop when this song came out, but I like it. Oh, well. It’s not for everyone.
