Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go

[tweetmeme source=”socialitedreams” only_single=false]

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?

And that’s MISS ROSS to You

*edit: We have a new home!  www.socialitedreams.com

What comes to mind when I think of the amazing Diana Ross is Icon, Diva, sassy, beautiful, and the embodiment of the word GLAMOROUS.

This magnanimous woman has had a career that spans 5 decades and includes musical success, both with The Supremes and as a solo artist, along with a movie career that gave her memorable roles and an Oscar nomination.  I’ve always thought of her first when Motown and glamor come to mind, but it wasn’t until my boo Michael Jackson died (they’d been such close friends and I felt that I wanted to know more about her) that I actually started researching into her career and life, thus leading me to read her biography: Diana Ross by J. Randy Taraborrelli When I say Miss Ross has LIVED, that’d be an understatement!  I HIGHLY recommend the book, it showcases her drive and hunger for success, gives a poignant look into the woman.

Why am I even mentioning any of this?  BECAUSE I’M FREAKING EXCITED, that’s why! 😛  Guess who’s going to see the diva in action?  The superstar will be on her “More Today Than Yesterday: The Greatest Hits Tour” performing in select cities and I am so thrilled to be going to check her out on September 14th in New York.

Now the hunt is on for a totally fun, glamorous, chic outfit that will be worthy of even being in the same ZIP CODE as Miss Ross.  And let’s not forget the MAKEUP that will have to be on point 😀  I need your help, what are some of your favorite online shops (or Chicago boutiques for any fellow Chicagoans)  for sparkly glam apparel?  Give me some ideas!  *Smooches*

I’d Have Kissed Her

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
