This is Angelika, 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.
I created this series: Angelika’s Songs to post here the new songs that she teaches me about.
Angelika went on a trip early this week. I spoke with her last night and she’s still listening for songs to educate me about. She gave me two new titles.
Will tell you about this one now.
Timber … Pitbull ft. Ke$ha
“Timber” is a song by American rapper Pitbull featuring American recording artist Kesha. The song was released on October 7, 2013, as the lead single from Pitbull’s extended play (EP) Meltdown. The song was produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and Sermstyle, with additional production by Nick Seeley. The song interpolates “San Francisco Bay” (1979), by Danish harmonica player Lee Oskar of the band War), which was written by Lee Oskar, Keri Oskar, and Greg Errico.
The song peaked at number one on the Billboard Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks, and has also topped the charts in many other countries, including Canada, where it has stood at number one for eight consecutive weeks, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Denmark.
~~Background and composition~~
Kesha had previously featured Pitbull on remixes of her songs “Tik Tok” and “Crazy Kids“. In an interview in December 2013, Pitbull said that Rihanna was originally meant to be the featured artist on “Timber“, but she had already been asked to be the featured artist on Shakira‘s “Can’t Remember to Forget You” and did not have time to record “Timber“.
“Timber” is a dance-pop song that lasts three minutes and twenty four seconds. It contains country and folk influences. According to the sheet music music published at musicnotes.com, the song is set in common time with moderately fast tempo of 132 beats per minute.
The song is written in the key of G# minor and follows a chord sequence of G#m-B-F#-E. Kesha’s vocals span from G#3 to D#5.

If you notice, when Pitbull dives underwater, you can see this sculpture.
~~Mexico’s underwater museum~~
It’s not just flurries of brightly coloured fish that you’ll spot whilst swimming the warm, turquoise waters off the coast of Cancun.
Just a short kick of the flippers away from Mexico‘s famous diving spot, Manchones Reef, you’ll find a collection of over 400 underwater statues that comprise one of the world’s most unusual museums, the Cancun Underwater Museum.
The waters off the coast of Cancun are some of the best in the world. Jason Decaires Taylor, the artist behind the project, designed the sculptures from ph neutral clay in order to stimulate the growth of coral reef and marine life.
