Stormy Weather

The weather outside is frightful…

No, that’s not the video for tonight, but wind and rain is pretty bad outside so what better than staying cozy inside and listen/watch Natalie Cole and Tony Bennett sing about Stormy Weather?

Hope the weather where you are is better, but the video is still worth watching πŸ™‚

Ruling the world?

Sorry, but that’s not for me.

I have to say that I feel like I should find something else to blog about besides the latest music video I have run across. I just find it interesting that while participating in NaBloPoMo I managed to post every day without using music video at all (I think – I’m not going to check πŸ™‚ ).Β So I thought I would check the Daily Prompt for today.

If there was something I was going to change, I think I would try and reintroduce “compromise” in the world of politics. I personally think that nowadays it has become more of a “us vs them” kind of adversarial relationship where our idea is the only one that works and theirs is just rubbish. What happened to everyone working towards what is best for the constituency? Or as I like to say: “Why can’t everyone just get along?”

Goodnight all!

Preconceived notions

I don’t know why, but for some reason I never thought I would like One Direction. I had not heard their music, so I really had nothing to base that notion on. As it seems to be happening more and more lately, it is by actually hearing the music playing in the gym while I am walking on the treadmill that I find out about new music.

This is how I found out about this next song. And lo and behold, it is One Direction singing… I have not heard many of their songs but I sure like two of them. Story of my Life is the other one so far.

I guess I’ll be listening to more One Direction to find out if there are more songs of theirs that I like.

I’d like to buy a clue

So I just watched Youtube’s Rewind 2015 and I had no idea what any of those people and memes were. I like to say that I try to stay up to date with popular music since my musical taste is pretty eclectic, but although I had heard the songs, I had no idea who most of the artists were, in particular Wiz Khalifa, Charlie Puth. Wow, I guess I should have watched Furious 7. And I guess it’s too late to learn to do the “Nae Nae” 😐

Turns out that the song those two artists above performed for Furious 7 was the top trending videoΒ of the year… So you get to hear it once again.

I’m not lying

because my lips aren’t moving πŸ™‚

Yeah, a cheap pun based on one of the songs from Meghan Trainor.

All that so I can use one of her video’s in today’s blog post πŸ™‚

Hey, I really like the song, and it doesn’t hurt that I like John Legend as well, check out his All Of Me video if you’re not familiar with him.

Still with music

My daughter borrowed our minivan a while ago and left her car for us to use while she had ours. When I used it, an album played and I thought it was really good. The album name was Love StuffΒ (the link is to Google Music – it may still be on sale for $0.99) by Elle King. I think pretty much every song on the album is good and I thought I would share one of them with you. Now I’m not going to go with the obvious, “Ex’s and Oh’s” but rather with “Ain’t gonna drown“. Hope you enjoy.

You probably watched this already

I had some grandiose idea that I would find unknown music and expose it to my vast (dream on πŸ™‚ ) audience. Then I finally found out that just because a video on Youtube as a lot of views doesn’t mean that everyone knows about it. This video is an example of that. I had no idea who Ed Sheeran was until I found out that heΒ was singing this song. And then I watched other Ed Sheeran videos and I can’t believe I was unaware of his existence before now. I shudder to think how many other artists I am missing out on.

Anyway, maybe watching this video will also make you aware of Ed Sheeran; and if you know about him already you will enjoy listening to him again…


PS: Well I didn’t know that “you probably watched this” meant that I had already included this video in my blog a month ago. Awesome… enjoy the Encore presentation πŸ™‚
