It’s another way to honor George Michael.

Hope you enjoy it!

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

Here’s another one.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one too!

André Léon Marie Nicolas Rieu (born 1 October 1949) is a Dutch violinist and conductor best known for creating the waltz-playing Johann Strauss Orchestra.

Together they have turned classical and waltz music into a worldwide concert touring act, as successful as some of the biggest global pop and rock music acts.

For his work, Rieu has been awarded such honours as the Order of the Netherlands Lion by the Netherlands, the Knight of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by France, and the Honorary Medal by his native Province of Limburg.

To start the day …. “Lady Gaga Carpool Karaoke …. with James Corden …. “!!

LADY GAGA

I love James Corden’s carpool karaoke!

This is one of the best ones.

Lady Gaga … what a gal!

Here’s the full skit.

Lady Gaga’s Carpool Karaoke Might be The Late Late Show’s Best Yet

We all know Gaga can belt—but she and Corden really had a blast

Lady Gaga and James?

No disappointment at all -in fact, thanks to her energetic banter with Corden, her ever-fabulous belting, and Corden’s decision to mimic some of her most notorious outfits, Gaga’s Carpool Karaoke segment might be the best one yet.

Gaga also crashed the Late Late Show stage on Tuesday night, October 25, briefly hijacking Corden’s monologue before the host came out on stage – in a stage of partial undress.

The two eventually reconciled, and Gaga joined the band for the remainder of the show.

goldswirlgag13goldswirl

Truthfully, Corden seems like the type of guy who can shoot the breeze with just about anyone – but he and Gaga seemed to really vibe, teasing one another, gabbing about Gaga’s upcoming Super Bowl performance, and briefly improvising their way through an O-Town cover.

At one point, Gaga even took the wheel.

In between, of course, they squeezed in a few Gaga favorites old and new, including “Perfect Illusion,” “Bad Romance,” “The Edge of Glory,” “Born This Way,” “Poker Face,” and “Million Reasons.”

But the true highlight of the session might be when Corden took Gaga on a trip down fashion memory lane, bringing back some of her most notorious outfits – yes, including the meat dress.

Based on her reaction, it seems Gaga has soured on perishable attire.

Thoughts for today, #185 … “Grateful for Love & Kindness”!!


Today

~~June 25, 2015~~ 

LOVE AND KINDNESS

Love & kindness have a way
of brightening up the darkest day
And when your soft words I hear
you chase away my inner fear

When you whisper my name
I can feel you hold me tight
And when I have a bad day
you still do make it right

Angelika’s Songs …. “Pentatonix: Daft Punk”!!

Pentatonix Covers Daft Punk Hits in Stunning A Cappella Medley

Pentatonix, the a cappella group that recently brought us a beautiful rendering of Beyonce’s greatest hits, has set its sights on the French electronic duo Daft Punk.

In a little over four minutes, Pentatonix’ new medley covers an impressive array of Daft Punk hits, including “Get Lucky,” Celebrate,” “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and “One More Time.”

BLine

Angelika, is my oldest grand-daughter, you may have seen her here a few times. She just turned 10 years old this month.

She loves music, as much as I do. She’s been keeping me up to date with some of the new songs that are coming out. She knows the songs but doesn’t know the performer most of the time. I’ve trying to teach her it’s important to also know who is singing. Very frequently, we use the “Shazam” app to identify the singer/band.

Last night, we were looking at a YouTube video by Pentatonix that she had found on her own. Her music teacher at school showed the class another one of their videos. And we went searching!

As we were browsing and trolling through YouTube, we found this one. Both of us were enthralled by the presentation, the colors, the talent.

It’s awesome to share music with Angelika.

Angelika’s Songs …. “Master of Tides”: Lindsey Stirling!!


LS

~~November 23, 2014~~

Angelika, is my oldest grand-daughter, you may have seen her here a few times. She is 9 years old.

She loves music, as much as I do. She’s been keeping me up to date with some of the new songs that are coming out. She knows the songs but doesn’t know the performer most of the time. I’ve trying to teach her it’s important to also know who is singing. Very frequently, we use the “Shazam” app to identify the singer/band.

Last night we were looking at two music posts where I used videos by Lindsey Stirling: “Dragon Age: Inquisition” and “Assassin’s Creed”. She surprised me by asking: “have you seen another one by Lindsey called “Master of Tides“?

I hadn’t. We looked it up together and here I’m presenting it to you.

(This girl has quite a way of teaching me!)

AngWarmMusKeys

For her new music video, Master of Tides, Lindsey Stirling wanted to do something different. The director of the video, Mike Greene, set up a spontaneous live performance and recorded the footage as Stirling’s new music video.

Those who were present in the Americana Mall Square in Glendale, CA witnessed the video and had no idea before the performance that something like this was going to take place.

Move

Stirling combined many ideas for the creation of this video. She had a pirate themed performance with a fountain show, pyro guns, and background dancers that were dressed to look like pirates and sirens. Suzanne Bernel, Cirque Berzerk Director and Stylist remarked about the costumes and the problems the dancers had, saying,

The biggest challenge in the spontaneous performance was designing these beautiful elaborate costumes, some that had some weight and some structure to them and then having to have them be covered up. And the make up too, is how do you have someone in elaborate, Poseidon/sea siren makeup and having to cover that up to where they just look like a shopper at the mall.

Some of the challenges that the crew faced were dancing and performing stunts on a wet surface, incorporating new moves into the routine that Stirling had never done before, and designing costumes and make up that could be disguised easily to fit in with the crowd.

MT1

Stirling concluded the performance by mentioning

The reason I’ve always wanted to do a spontaneous performance is because you get to surprise people; you get to make people, hopefully, make people smile that weren’t expecting this. And I’m looking forward to hopefully, you know, making a memorable night for someone tonight.

MusKeys

British pop singer Jessie J has been on cruise control in her attempt at world domination, but now she’s set to extend the popularity she receives back home in the U.K. and bring the craze over to the States.

The 26-year-old has already unleashed her debut album Who You Are — powered by her hits, “Nobody’s Perfect,” “Price Tag,” “Domino,” and “Who You Are” — and her sophomore project Alive, which was restricted to a U.K.-only release in 2013.

Now, with Diplo, Max Martin, The-Dream, 2 Chainz, and more in her corner, Jessie is shooting for chart-topping success with her third studio album Sweet Talker.

JJ3

One of J’s biggest hits off Sweet Talker that placed her at No. 3 on Billboard’s Hot 100 is her explosive hit “Bang Bang” featuring Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The trifecta’s collaboration was made possible by mega-producer Max Martin, who reached out to Jessie to see if she was interested in lending her vocals for the potential new single.

Sam7

“Stay with Me” is a song by British singer-songwriter Sam Smith from his debut studio album In the Lonely Hour (2014). It was released in the United Kingdom as a digital download on 18 May 2014. The song was written by Smith and Jimmy Napier. “Stay with Me” is a pop ballad that details the protagonist pleading with his one-night stand not to leave him.

The song has become Smith’s most successful single to date, peaking at number one in the United Kingdom, becoming his third chart-topper there (second as a solo artist), as well as in Canada and New Zealand. In the United States, it peaked at number two for two weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart becoming his first top ten hit in the country. It has also reached Top 10 status in over twelve countries worldwide, becoming his most successful single to date.

Sam12

Samuel Frederick “Sam” Smith (born 19 May 1992) is an English singer-songwriter. He rose to fame in October 2012 when he was featured on Disclosure’s breakthrough single “Latch”, which peaked at number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. His subsequent feature — on Naughty Boy’s “La La La”— earned him his first number 1 single in May 2013.

In December 2013, he was nominated for the 2014 BRIT Critics’ Choice Award and the BBC’s Sound of 2014 poll, both of which he won. He released his debut studio album, In the Lonely Hour, in May 2014 on Capitol Records. The lead single, “Lay Me Down”, was released prior to “La La La”.

MusicB

The second single was “Money on My Mind”. The album’s third single “Stay with Me” was an international success, peaking atop both the UK Singles chart and the U.S. Billboard Pop Songs chart (along with the Adult Contemporary, Adult Pop Songs and Radio Songs charts); it also reached number 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Stay With Me Lyrics

Guess it’s true
I’m not good
At a one night stand
But I still need love
Cos I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave
Will you hold my hand

Oh won’t you
Stay with me
Cos you’re
All I need
This aint love
It’s clear to see
But darling
Stay with me

Why am I so emotional?
No it’s not a good look
Gain some self control
Deep down I know this never works
But you can lay with me
So it doesn’t hurt

Oh won’t you
Stay with me
Cos you’re
All I need
This aint love
It’s clear to see
But darling
Stay with me

Oh won’t you
Stay with me
Cos you’re
All I need
This aint love
It’s clear to see
But darling
Stay with me

Meghan Trainor sings about not being a size 2. And about magazines not being real with all their Photoshop. Come on now, make it stop! And this is such a great message! Show the world you can be whatever you want to be, in each and every size.

And I love this text:

“Yeah, my momma she told me don’t worry about your size
She says, boys they like a little more booty to hold at night”

Just don’t worry … accept yourself!

Embrace your body… that’s my message to you all!
