I am NOT a morning person by any stretch of the imagination. Brain feels fried and groggy, body has aches like a 90 year old who did stunt devil’s work for decades, face looks like it’s been hit with a mallet….yeah I know, drop dead sexy visual, right? So what’s a girl to do who has a job that starts before noon?
MUSIC! Music is my saving grace, able to alter any mood with its melodious harmonies and crooning voices. The invention of the iPod is probably the greatest one in recent history (besides the internet of course, couldn’t talk to you peeps without that, right?) and allows thousands of songs to be conveniently available at the spin of a tiny dial.
My question for you is: What are three songs that instantly perk you up, get you on your way, and turn AAAAHHHH GRRRR into MMMM. Let’s hear it!
I’ll start. My 3 instant mood perk me up songs are:
1. PYT – Michael Jackson = I love this song so much I’m having it as a part of my license plate…what? I AM a P(retty) Y(oung) T(hang) so it fits!
2. Blame it on the Boogie – Jackson 5 = this song just gets me going! it’s so upbeat and I love the end. Video is cute too, just all around fun.
3. 5 Star Chick – Yo Gotti, Gucci Mane, Nicki Minaj = Had to get my bit of ghetto driving music in here 😀
Well those are mine! What are your 3 get up and get em songs?
*edit: We have a new home! www.socialitedreams.com
I went to see the Princess and the Frog with my best friend and must say that I was very pleased! The drawing and imagery was BEAUTIFUL, just gorgeous. There’s a light path part of the movie that is just so well done, the lightening bug parade so to speak. Just beautiful.
Storyline wise, I liked the hard working Tiana and her bubbly loud mouth blonde best friend, Charlotte. Tiana is working hard, with no time for anything else at all, in order to buy a building to build a restaurant. Throughout the story, she needs to learn that she should enjoy life a bit more too. Prince Naveen has arrived, but he needs to learn some responsibility and acts like a typical rich frat boy stereotype. He’s gorgeous, but his arrogant selfish ways weren’t too cute! He has to go on a character building journey as well.
I liked the songs, but none stood out that made me sing out of the theater like “A Whole New World”, “Part of Your World” or “Hakuna Matata”. The jazzy upbeat tunes are pleasing to the ear definitely, but as for iconic? Not thinking so, but I’ll hear them again before I judge too greatly. The sidekicks/secondary characters are also fun. I HATED the lightening bug in the previews and stuff, but during the movie he was one of my favorites and a great ally. The gator was also fun and just wanted to be accepted, lovely character. The bad guys were quite scary, I mean whoa. The shadow demons were quite terrifying, especially in the end. if i were a young child i’d be having some nightmares, honestly!
Overall I give it an A- I’ll add it to my collection as a favorite, wish that it had a stand out song to it though (or like Aladdin, Little Mermaid, and Lion King: MOST of the songs are stand out songs in those movies, lol)
Welcome to the Disney Princess’ Clique, Tiana. You’ll fit in fine! Beautiful, strong, good character, definite role model 🙂
I’ve been rocking out to the album “One of the Boys” by the coyishly cool Katy Perry.
I’m really feeling her fun style, and find myself in songs like “If You Can Afford Me”, which boasts such lyrics as:
If you want me, it takes more than a wink,
And more than a drink and more than you think.
If you want me you’re gonna have to break the bank, tonight.
Cuz some don’t have the patience, some call me high-maintenance
But you pay the bill, cuz, that’s the deal.
If you want me, then stop begging I don’t put out for charity
If you want me there’s no discount price tonight
Come on, those lyrics are AWESOME, and would have been my theme song in South Beach Miami if she’d come out 4 years ago. Then there are the more love songs of “Mannequin” where she wants the guy to feel how she feels and stop being so uptight and cold to her, and the great song “I Think I’m Ready” where she feels the need to grow up and get out of “friend” territory with the bad boys and into being appreciated and loved by a good man. I really really like that song.
I’m used to opening my own doors and splitting the checks
He introduced me, was always just a friend
I bought a new dress, he never noticed
Always falling for these bad boys, such a challenge
You were such a surprise
An unexpected gift
Told myself I don’t deserve you
And this is just a phase
Could I get used to being loved the right way?
I wanna argue, but there is nothing to say
Okay, I can’t write a post about Katy Perry and not mention everyone’s favorite song, “I Kissed a Girl”. That song is pretty badass, I like the beat and sound so much. May even get ring tone status 😉 And look at her, if i were in an experimental phase, I’d kiss her too!
also, the song “Thinking of You” has been on repeat and a ringtone for me. The video is truly spectacular and underrated in my opinion. The clothing, the men, the sad storyline, the acting….lord, it’s a breathtaking video that even makes me cry. A 2 hr romantic drama tragedy condensed into 4 minutes…LOVE IT
