Song Of The Month – October 2018 – The Way I Am By Eminem

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQvteoFiMlg[/youtube] Do you remember that time when Eminem was literally the most important person in whole entire world of music? I even bought Angry Blonde which was a book about his songs, the lyrics, the inspirations. I loved him but I had friends that were obsessed with him. The way these young whipper snappers are obsessed with One Direction, Fifth…

That Blog Life

Was The Social Media Break Worth It?

I said a Temporary Goodbye to this blog on the 20th July 2018 while I went on my first big family holiday with my kids (which ticked off a place on my travel bucket list) and had a much-needed social media break. The hope was that I would rejuvenate myself while being scared of FOMO and potentially losing some of…

Song Of The Month – September 2018 – Crawling By Linkin Park

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd9OhYroLN0[/youtube] Last year, the lead singer of Linkin Park died and I had an immense feeling of grief, especially for his children, I realised that I hadn’t listened to one of my all time favourite albums, Hybrid Theory, for years. It got me through those awkward teenage years, gave me a feeling of belonging to something. The album will never…

Song Of The Month – August 2018 – I Write Sins Not Tragedies By Panic! At The Disco

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vc6vs-l5dkc[/youtube] This a complete throwback of me from a different time. I remember I went through a phase of mild emo-ness. I loved it. I had a friend at school that used to write song lyrics down on paper and pass them to me in class. For ages, I thought she was some sort of philosophical poetical marvel! Turns out…

Song Of The Month – July 2018 – Ready For Love By India.Arie

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxkMlS2nuU8[/youtube] I think this is the 3rd time that India Arie has popped up in my Song of the Month playlist. What can I say but she’s amazing! Songs like this make me wish I never gave up the guitar but it hurt my fingers though! Anyway, this song gives me goosebumps, it’s so sincere and beautiful. If you’ve never…

Song Of The Month – June 2018 – Should’ve Been Us By Tori Kelly

  [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aE2drlA8vf8[/youtube] With a voice like hers, I’m not sure why she isn’t bigger! But perhaps the market is too crowded or people just haven’t given her a chance but honestly, Tori Kelly is so amazing and that hair!! Had to mention the hair, of course! I love this song and did from the second I first heard it but…

Song Of The Month – May 2018 – On & On By Erykah Badu

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CPCs7vVz6s[/youtube] I’m just over half way through my headwrapping photo project on Instagram and it’s time for my Song of The Month.  So when it came to a musical artist that inspired me and also I could picture their crowns wrapped in  beautiful fabric, who else other than Erykah Badu. I know these days she is known for flaunting her…

Song Of The Month – April 2018 – 2U By David Guetta and Justin Bieber

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqcjBLMaWCg[/youtube] I am loathed to add Justin Bieber to my definitive list of songs I love because I am a grown ass woman but goddammit, he makes fairly good music (now) especially when he collabs with dance DJs. It’s just a winning formula for the guy, it was a toss up between this or “Where R U Now” with Skrillex…

Song Of The Month – March 2018 – Stay by Zedd & Alessia Cara

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h–P8HzYZ74[/youtube] I have to say there is something a little different about Zedd’s take on dance music. From collabs with Hayley Williams to Foxes, it’s clear that he focuses on the song and not just the beat. Which is why this collab works so well! I love Alessia Cara’s voice and I played a few of her songs to the…

Song Of The Month – February 2018 – Breathe Life By Jack Garratt

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqtvrsNLFMs[/youtube] I can’t even describe this sound. This is music like I’ve never heard. I have many a list of products to try, places to go and albums to buy (because some people haven’t yet come round to the idea of Spotify!) and this artist, Jack Garrett, is on the list of albums for sure. I will admit, if you…

Song Of The Month – January 2018 – Get On The Bus By Destiny’s Child

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TOpuUWbrvg[/youtube] I can’t remember a time when Destiny’s Child or Beyoncé weren’t a part of my life. Well I can, there was a brief period where the Spice Girls where the greatest girl group of all time. I know TLC were around but I’m from the UK so at their peak, you couldn’t breathe without something Spice Girls being shoved in…

Song Of The Month – December 2017 – Are You That Somebody? by Aaliyah

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjDM0Fz5ccU[/youtube] The beat of this song is soooo strong. I feel, apart from the string vests in the video, this sound and look would hold up today, no question. Aaliyah is one of those artists, because she passed away, whose greatest potential was never met. Yes she was pretty big but her last album was about to blow up in…

Song Of The Month – October 2017 – Trick Me By Kelis

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zI339U6GS9s[/youtube] Considering this is primarily a hair blog I suppose that I would be remiss if I didn’t have Kelis somewhere on here. I’ve liked all of her albums and this is one of my favourite songs of hers after “Get Along With You”, “Caught Out There”, “Mafia”, “4th of July”…

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

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymKLymvwD2U[/youtube] 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…

Song Of The Month – January 2017 – Alive by Sia

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6cQ4PeD3lM[/youtube] 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…

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

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2LpOUwca94[/youtube] 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…

November 2016 – Phenomenal Woman by Laura Mvula

[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7—iGdDIBQ[/youtube] 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…
