Song Of The Month – June 2017 – Pass Out by Tinie Tempah

LINK TO THE VIDEO This song reminds me of like four years worth of going out. It took a long time before DJs stopped playing this one.It’s one of those songs that everyone of a certain age knows all the words too. And when I say a certain age, I’m not talking old even. If it came on when I was out now (on the extremely rare occasion I go out), this is STILL my jam! I know I’m talking about this like it’s an ancient classic but I swear when I get old and frail and am stuck in…

Song Of The Month – May 2017 – It Takes More by Miss Dynamite

LINK TO THE VIDEO When I’m singing along to this song, the hands are going, the lip gets curled, the neck gets a little loose. What can I say, it’s a classic. The album this came off is pretty decent, my mum bought it, she was a bit of a CD junkie however, I am not going to say anything negative about that because it meant that I had access to music I couldn’t afford to get myself. Yes, there was a time when your first port of call to hear something wasn’t the internet. It is old now and…

Song Of The Month – April 2017 – Gust Of Wind by Pharrell Williams

LINK TO THE VIDEO I love this song so much. I think it got a bit overshadowed by Happy and Get Lucky but honestly, I think it’s better. I have a habit, when I love a song, to play it on repeat. For hours at a time and this is one of those songs for me. I actually based a whole chapter of one of my stories around this song I like it so much. But if you don’t know this song, you should be ashamed of yourself! Or listen and get to know it… Follow me on YouTube to…

Song Of The Month – March 2017 – Video by India.Arie

LINK TO THE VIDEO I remember when this song came out and it was so different to everything else I was hearing. It was a positive message that, as an insecure teenager, I needed to hear. I just wish that once I put down my hairbrush microphone and left my bedroom I would have been able to put her lessons into practice. It’s only taken me until now to really understand what she means and that it’s ok to just be yourself! It’s hard, but it’s ok. Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes,…

Song Of The Month – February 2017 – Whip My Hair by Willow Smith

LINK TO THE VIDEO When it comes to thinking about classic songs that will go down in history, this ain’t one! But at this time of pretty much complete baldness, it is motivation. Because one day I will be able to whip my hair or have enough hair to add extensions to my own hair to whip. But until that day, I will just nod my head to this little ditty. Follow me on YouTube to watch the whole playlist. So here it goes, press play, listen and love it. Let’s keep growing! xx Lee xx Comments welcome below. Hey,…

Song Of The Month – January 2017 – Alive by Sia

LINK TO THE VIDEO Not even Donald Trump’s face at the beginning of this video can dampen how much I love this version. This would be another one I inflicted on the kids, “you will like this…eventually!” And they do. They now dutifully sing along which makes me happy. I can’t say that I’ve been through this kind of turmoil in my life but the fact that people have and they survive is inspirational and motivational. This version in particular gave me goosebumps the first time I heard it, I think that is the power of the gospel choir transforming…

Song Of The Month – December 2016 – Light It Up (feat. Nyla & Fuse ODG) by Major Lazer

LINK TO THE VIDEO Moving into December, it is the season to be jolly and all that malarkey but I’m not one to sit and listen to Christmas music (unless it’s the 8 Days Of Christmas by Destiny’s Child, specifically Opera of the Bells). The song of the month needs to make you forget that it’s cold outside, make you feel the summer sun and this does that for me. If only I had hair to whip to this! It literally never gets old and if you were to get a little bored, there are like 5 versions of this…

November 2016 – Phenomenal Woman by Laura Mvula

LINK TO THE VIDEO My first song of the month! Definitely, the first of many, many more… I love music. I love dancing around my living room, singing at the top of my lungs with my kids, I love when music just makes you feel good, makes you want to sing louder, make you wish it was your song. Well this song does that for me. Also the fact that Laura Mvula is proudly sporting a bald head makes me more confident that I have nothing to be embarrassed or worried about. She looks amazing but more importantly sounds amazing.…
