Music Monday – Woodkid

I saw my sister and her dance class perform at Worcester Festival last week which was great! We got to see a lot of other performances, but the song my sister’s group performed to really stuck in my head. I’ve since downloaded it and can’t stop playing it.

What was it I hear you ask? Well…

Run Boy Run by Woodkid (This fellow below…)


Now don’t tell me after listening to the song, that you don’t want to get up and do something productive? I know the video is a bit odd, but the song itself is great! The music has a fab beat that certainly gets my blood pumping and keeps me motivated. I also like some of the words, especially  “Tomorrow is another day”, cus it is. And no matter how many times we fall down or fail each day, we have the opportunity to start fresh the next day, as long as we get up and keep moving.

What have you been listening to recently?

We’d love to know so share your recommendations in the comments below!


Music Monday – Burlesque

I turned on my iTunes last night for the first time in a long time, and after a couple of songs it shuffled onto a couple of songs from the film Burlesque. Soooo, I thought they would make a great post for Music Monday…

Burlesque - Christina Aguilera and Cher

Of course we have a great song from Cher when we first enter the club…

The first song when they get to see who Christina can really sing…

A cheeky number from Aggie…

And of course the two great showstoppers: Express….

And Show Me How You Burlesque…

Burlesque - Christina Aguilera

Have you seen the film, or heard any of the songs before?

Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Currently on my playlist…

Every Kingdom

I have been listening to this album on repeat every now and again since I was first introduced to it by an old friend! I find it soothing, and it helps me to concentrate when I am working.

Find all the songs here…

Might help you if you need to knuckle down and get some work done!?

Throwback Thursday – Taylor Swift – Love Story

I constantly have my huge iTunes playlist on shuffle and I don’t usually here the same songs very often. But earlier this week it played a song that I haven’t heard in a long time.

And I thought it was time for another Throwback Thursday post.

So, here is the song…

It is probably the first Taylor Swift song I ever heard, and I have kinda been in love with her music ever since!

You can find more of Taylor’s music on YouTube here.

Annie – Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile

I have been feeling a bit blue today (something to do with the crappy weather that has just moved into my area).

Do you know what has perked me up this evening though?

This song…

It’s an up-to-date version of the song from Annie performed by Sia.

I can’t wait to go and see the film (but might have to wait till it comes out on dvd).

Have a quick listen (it’ll only take a couple minutes I promise 🙂 ) and I am sure it will bring a smile to your face too!
