Mariah’s Babies…

Okay, so awhile back, I wrote about how Mariah got so hot based on her parents pictures… See here.

Now, we have the new babies of Mariah and Nick to look forward to seeing. Will Morrocan Scott and Monroe Cannon be cute?

Time will tell…

For now, this is what they looked like in her belly.

WHOA!

Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song


This is a perfect follow up to Grenade from the “Doo Wops and Hooligans” album. However, I still think that Marry You would have been released had it not been featured on GLEE. Who needs to release their own single, when a show like GLEE can promote something without even trying.

In any case, Bruno Mars (aka Peter Hernandez), doesn’t take himself very seriously in this one-shot video for The Lazy Song.

Watch and laugh your way through this perfect summer song. In fact, “today I don’t feel like doing anything…” either.

The Lighter Exchange – Beneath the Endlessness

The following is a reply given to a friend after she asked me to give a listen to the release: “Beneath the Endlessness” by The Lighter Exchange

The Lighter Exchange

So first off, I really love the CD. I think there is a lot of promise if they can swim through the muck on the radio right now. The politics and whatnot are not the most desirable, but I’m sure you have some local connections at least for local play.

I also saw that Long Way Down and Lady Luck are in an independent film in the Florida Film Festival. There are many songs on this album that could have a chance with TV and movie placement.

I have listened to the CD a bazillion times since  it was given to me since I wanted to be as helpful as possible. As I listened, thoughts continued to change based on pieces of different songs.

My favorites are:

  1. Hello My Friend (3:34)
  2. Stuck in My Head (3:37)
  3. Morning Comes (3:24)
  4. Paper Planes (5:35)

Those selections are based on what I think might click on a fan basis. Hello My Friend is upbeat enough to catch attention and the lead singer starts almost immediately (could be hard for radio since there is no room to talk over). Then, I love Stuck in My Head. It has a mid tempo/ballad feel. Those types, I feel, are a nice follow up to a catchy pop/rock track. Morning Comes brings more of the up tempo rock feel as a ballad follow up. However the 27 second introduction might be too long for internet plays, but okay for radio since they can talk over it.

Then I love Paper Planes which is totally sentimental and enjoyable. Not sure how that falls into anything, but I really think its a nice ending to the album. Probably way too long for radio play though. The others seem to fit in the mold.

I saw some clips on Youtube from the HOB show. The studio versions are a bit better of some of the tracks, but I think the more they are played, the stronger the vocals get.

Those are my 52 cents.  Check it out.

My heart is so jet-lagged…

Over the years, I have really grown to love Natasha Bedingfield. Sometimes she screams a bit too much, however, there is something about her that makes me melt a little and forgive her for the screaming and occasional bad notes.

I cannot help but love this song, as trite and cheesy as it may be. What do you think?

Turn on the Waterworks

There aren’t too many times when someone’s live performance can bring tears to your eyes. This is especially true when it is a type of music you don’t normally listen to.

Check out Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill sing “How Great Thou Art” and let me know what you think. For me, if you don’t have some wet eyes at the end…check your pulse…

come back Veronicas!

I’m loving the new song “Love the Fall” by Michel Paynter and the Veronicas. Michael is apparently working on trying to finally release his debut album. If this is the first official single, I’m buying. Maybe the Veronicas need something new…just sayin’

What do you think?

Self imposed perfection…

I pulled out the Jagged Little Pill album the other day and as I was listening I realized how much track number three resonated with me. I think I have a self imposed version of the song going on in my life.
