My Favorite Love Songs…

Posted in happyness, Love, music, playlist, rant, sadface, The Holidays on 02/14/2011 by asante

Yes folks, it’s that time of year again. When everyone you know is either cuddling up to the one they love or really like, or cursing this ill-begotten red and pink holiday.

Valentine’s day :)

I’ve spent the majority being mildly (ok more than mildly…) bitter at the entire concept of this day, but with a glass of wine in my system, I’m ready to be a bit more civil. I’ll admit, my first single V-Day in 4 years was awfully strange. You know how you don’t notice certain things in others until you don’t have them? Yeah well it seemed like EVERYONE was getting flowers or obnoxious balloons or surprise gifts. Like, everywhere. *vomit*.

I think the low point of this day was when an aging hobo asked me to be his Valentine. Talk about rock bottom. lol. #singlelife.

Anyways, back to the point, where was I?…. Right, love songs. Most days of the year, I’m perfectly optimistic about the concept of love, and I am a big fan of great love songs. So below (after the cut) are some of my favorites, and if you’re late on the boat and haven’t put together a playlist for your special someone or other, hope this helps. Celebrate the Love :)

….or if you’re still bitter, holler at my good friend Modi for his Singles Awareness Day Mixtape #3, which is a great ode to those of us without someone to snuggle with tonight. (Or check him out anyways, he’s mad talented!)

Anyways, Happy Valentine’s Day, folks. I’m off for a much deserved bubble bath. And to refill my glass. lol.

despite my slightly gloomy mood, as always…

Short pointless post. Stumbled across this and the concept alone blew my mind. Nirvana x J*Davey. #YesPlease.

Great original, epic cover. I love J*Davey!

Listen and enjoy :)

Another year gone by…

Another turning point;
a fork stuck in the road.

Time grabs you by the wrist;
directs you where to go.

So make the best of this test
and don’t ask why.

It’s not a question,
but a lesson learned in time.

It’s something unpredictable
but in the end it’s right.
I hope you had the time of your life.

–Green Day

2010 has come and gone.

May the upcoming year bring you bigger and better things than the one before it.

[in 5…….. 4…….. 3…….. 2…….. 1……..]

 

happy new year!

Wintertime = Cuffing Season

Posted in happyness, music, playlist, randomness, The Holidays, Uncategorized on 11/13/2010 by asante

Hey blogfriends!

It’s officially “Cuffing Season” folks. lol. Getchu a piece!!!

It’s that time of year when everybody wants a boo-piece to keep them warm through these chilly winter months (and probably to buy them something nice come ChristmaHannuKwanzaaKah). Can’t hate. Do I have one? Not so much, at the moment. lol. But, for those of you that do, I’m here to help facilitate your boo-loving moments.

Y’all who read regularly or who know me well are fully aware that I LOVE music. It gets me through life, and in a lot of ways it’s just EVERYTHING to me, lol. Music is a great way to set the mood with you and your seasonal boo-slice. So here’s my playlist of songs that will make you want to cuddle juuuuust a little bit closer this winter. All aboard for a list of  lazy, soulful, and sultry tunes. Hope y’all like it, and feel free to suggest any great songs I may have missed!

I’m officially on the bandwagon. Willow Smith is  just so frickin’ adorable. Congrats to her on a fly song and a rocking video. I need braids in my life… ASAP. lol

“I whip it real hard….I whip it real hard……”

i love my hair!

One time for Sesame Street.

Seriously. I’m a fan from wayyyyy back, (Gawrsh has it really been 20 years since I was their target demographic?! O_O) so I’m glad that PBS is still putting out quality learning-ness for the kiddies to this day. (Get the heck on, Barney.  *side-eye* lol)

They did a clip featuring a monster with natural hair! (well, curly. but close enough lol). I thought this was the cutest thing ever, and I hope they keep this clip around in the future for my one-day napped-out babies to watch too lol.

Song of the Day…

Posted in beautiful, happyness, inspired, Life, Me, music, quotes, randomness on 10/12/2010 by asante

I love this song. Lovelovelovelove. It’s one of those songs that gets my day going, puts me in a good mood, and if i wasn’t in a cubicle, it would probably get me singing at the top of my lungs lol. If humans had the power to have soundtracks to their lives, I would want this song to play every time I entered a room lol.

I need something to get me hyped today, and this song is just the ticket. Good morning y’all, enjoy :)

I wanna thank you for every time you tried,
To get the best of me inside,
How many times I compromised
I don’t do this for the glory,
Or for what people might say.
I’m gonna do this my own way,
Starting today…

There’s nothing that you can tell me,
I’ll show you I was born ready…

And I say AY YO,
Rise up, lemme see your head high
And if you’re with it put your hands up in the sky,
La da di di da da di di da da da
Ay yo ay yo ay yo AY YO,
And I’m gon’ rock it to the fullest in this life,
So I’ma give all I got before I die,
La da di di da da di di da da da…
Ay yo ay yo ay yo…

Every woman has a purpose,
Nothing happens by chance.
This is your life here in your hands,
You gotta fight to take the stand
And I know you might not see it,
But the high can fall so fast,
When you’re in first don’t forget the last,
You gotta give it all you have…

Oh life can be unforgiving,
I’m fighting to keep on living…

And I say AY YO,
Rise up lemme see your head high,
And if you’re with it put your hands up in the sky,
La da di di da da di di da da da
Ay yo ay yo ay yo AY YO
And I’m gon’ rock it to the fullest in this life,
So I’m a give all I got before I die,
La da di di da da di di da da da…
Ay yo ay yo ay yo…

If you have a light,
Then hold it up and let it shine,
Would you make the choice to meet your destiny,
Or let this lifetime pass you by?
Only you can make it,
What’s yours is yours no one can take it,
If you have a dream,
Something you believe,
It’s time to set it free…

And I say AY YO,
Rise up lemme see your head high,
And if you’re with it put your hands up in the sky,
La da di di da da di di da da da,
Ay yo ay yo ay yo AY YO
And I’m gon’ rock it to the fullest in this life,
So I’m a give all I got before I die,
La da di di da da di di da da da …
Ay yo ay yo ay yo…
