Monday Must Haves - Ear Worms

Happy Monday everyone! Since I'm pretty sure you don't want to listen to me talk about the My Little Pony soundtrack or Cardi B, I enlisted the help of the beautiful, amazing, and talented Randee Armstrong! Have I mentioned she's a babe? Seriously. Randee is the manager extrarordinare over at The Skinny (who recently re-opened in Southgate Mall!) Randee always seems to have the best taste in music! Thanks Randee! 

---------------------------------------------------

Being it’s January and I’m feeling those winter blues I’m going to recommend songs that hopefully have a little more pep then they make you want to stay in bed all day. But also! Given the woman’s marches that took place this weekend I’m going to make this an all female theme as well, because they kick ass. 

 

So let’s start with my number 1, Slacks by St. South, it’s easy and it’s breezy and it’s got the perfect beat to get your feet off the bed and onto the floor.

Number 2 is a song called Low Tide by Drama Duo, her voice is super smooth and easy to listen to, it’s a morning drive to work go to.

Number 3 is a song i just discovered yesterday actually, this is a good mid morning sip your coffee and sing along while trying not to spill coffee on your white blouse (Randee move). Bellyache by Billie Eilish.

My number 4 is a bit more of a take a breather in the back if you find yourself annoyed by coworkers, customers or perhaps even those closest to you ;) Take a seat and some deep breaths while you listen to Perfect Grace by Kwamie Liv.

https://open.spotify.com/track/7Id0xQ8V4RqL2CpZ0iEJPk?si=xKbYlv1HR5aP19uHCtisRQ

Number 5! I’m only giving you 5 songs so i should try to make this one good... let’s see, this can be your drive home from work, because that’s always exciting and this allows you just enough beat to dance in your seat without putting other drivers in harms-way. Touch by Shura. She also gives me Solange vibes... and i love Solange.

https://open.spotify.com/track/2ylVfK4pVfeSV4zxieyT2B?si=NO7SLTJ6QPej4XMlgsp-_g

Actually you’re getting 6! Because this song is all about being a women and has lots to do with what went on this weekend!

Woman by Rosie Lowe!

Monday Must-Haves: Ear Worms

When I'm driving along in my amazing rocking' van, usually I'm stuck listening to whatever movie Clara likes. But sometimes, I get to listen to my own jams. I've been a subscriber to Apple Music for almost a year now and I love it. I love being able to ask Siri what song is playing and then downloading it to my phone. My current musical ear worms are below. Click the links to check out a snippet from any of the songs on Apple Music.

I love love love love Calvin Harris. I have so many of his albums. They always are the perfect mix of pop and dance. This whole album rocks my world, but I especially love Feels feat Katy Perry and Pharrell. It's so happy and dance-y. I'm sure you've heard it on the radio but I always find myself dancing and humming along.

The best part about Apple Music is that you find so many other artists. I was listening to John Mayer and I found this album. It's so good. The whole album has an awesome singer/songwriter/folk vibe to it. I love it for when I wake up in the morning before the kiddo and enjoy a nice quiet cup of coffee. Check out Forever Young is Getting Old for a jaunty whistle-y tune for your morning pick-me-up.

Alright, I will admit that I'm a big fan of hip hop and rap music (Hello Kendrick Lamar's HUMBLE!). Sometimes you just need a little rap music to get you through your day or your workout. This song is from 2014, but I love me a little Nicki Minaj and this song checks a lot of boxes for me. 

Good beat: Check

Nicki Minaj: Check

Good for cardio: Check

Joanne.jpg

No list of music I like would be complete without Lady Gaga. Her latest album Joanne was played on repeat when it dropped. Then I moved on, then I saw her in concert when she was here in early August and well, it's come back. My personal fave is Perfect Illusion. I love the song, I love the video, I just straight up love Gaga. 

Boss Ass Bitch.jpg

I LOVE THIS SONG! It's actually my ring tone. There's nothing like a song reminding you how bad ass you can be. "I'm a boss ass bitch". Put this song as your alarm and you're guaranteed to kick the crap outta your day. Just a heads up though, if your kid is old enough to sing along...this might be a song you use headphones with. 

Well, hopefully you discovered a few new tunes here! Let me know if you want to know more of what I'm listening to. Even if it's just the movies my kid is watching in the back seat of the van.
