Muse is my Muse

I caught the Muse concert on the Audience channel over the weekend and it really brought out my craving for them.  I have been nonstop listening to them ever since.  Here are some of my favorites!  Let me know what you think!

90s throwback

I was in the car this morning driving to work listening to Lithium, and it hits me.  I really miss having the 90s grunge music around.  They were playing some of my favorites this morning. I was so jamming out to it all.  Below I have shared some of what I was listening to.  I love this station.  I know that Sirius XM isn’t cheap, but the music is totally worth it!

Give them a listen.  Tell me what your favorite 90s jam is!

The Weigh Down

I love this song.  It’s a little hardcore and has really kept me motivated through my fitness journey.  It’s really catchy and has the perfect title for what I am currently doing.  This band has opened my eyes to the true world of heavy metal music.  I love it so.  Give it a listen and let me know what you think?

Fire and Gold

Bea Miller.  I find her music very uplifting and inspiring.  And since I know we all need a little inspiration, I thought I would share with you some of her music.  She is a beautifully talented singer!  Give it a listen and let me know what you think!  What music inspires you?

Polaroid

Two weeks ago I downloaded the new Imagine Dragons album, Smoke and Mirrors.  I have not stopped listening to this song in particular.  The album its self is just as good as the first (I listened to that for 6 mos. straight), but this one song just stands out to me.  Give it a listen.  It’s really catchy!

What are your thoughts?  Drop me  a comment!

Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts

Many of you know Scott as apart of the Stone Temple Pilots.  He has gone solo with a new group and I am obsessed with this album.  I cannot stop listening to it!  The Album is called Blaster and came out March 31.  I have decided to include the entire album this time, because its really really good!  Give it a shot and let me know what you think!

Good Vs. Evil

Today in my Writing class we were asked to write about two contrasting things, whatever they may be.  I did a terrible job with it so I decided to theme my Turn it Up Tuesday post this week with the same idea. What better to compare than good and evil its self right?  I have decided to play a song about good and a song about evil and one about both good and evil.

First up is the Good side..  This is Stiff Little Fingers.  A little history on this song.  Stiff Little Fingers are from Belfast, and were in the peak of their career in the late ’70s, when the Troubles were boiling hard and young men were expected to take to the streets for either the Catholic Republicans or Protestant Unionists, and maybe kill a few of the other side while they were at it. Jake Burns and the band said no, and showed that being good sometimes means being selfish. In this case, it meant refusing to kill or be killed at anyone’s orders.

The evil side of things?  Deep Purple, who needs no introduction.  This is Evil Louie

Swan Lake

Today I am taking it back to my high school years.  I am talking about my dancing and the music that comes with being a Ballet Dancer.  In my sophomore year of school, I switched dance school’s and was awakened to the read world of dance.  Of ballet and pointe and being a professional dancer.  That year we performed Swan Lake as our Big Ballet Performance.  Now I was a baby swan in the performance, I only had a five minute dance number, but it was magical all the same.  This is my favorite thing that Tchaikovsky did.  Swan Lake was my life following this performance.  So Below I am sharing with you my favorite piece from the ballet.  It is both challenging in dance and music, and is such a beautiful piece.  Please Enjoy!

The New Translation

Okay so remember when I was out that entire week from being sick?  Remember I said that I went through my music library in search of better things for my iPod? Well I came across this little gem of a CD and immediately knew I needed to listen to it.  You can find them on iTunes, just search the band’s name.

This is a group of boys that I grew up with.  I don’t think the band is together anymore because we all grew up and had to get adult jobs, but nonetheless they were huge where I am from. Kind of like Story of the Year which I am sure most of you have heard of, they are also from the stl area.  any way I digress.  They were an amazing band and they really had a great thing going!  I can remember going to many of their concerts.  They are just great.  So when I came across my copy of their album shift, I immediately put it on my iPod and put the CD in my car.  I have not stopped listening to it since.  Seriously.  Not that I didn’t already know their songs by heart, but I love it.  With the weather being as nice as it has been, it’s been a roll down the windows and crank up the volume mode with this one.  So below is two of their songs and a little meet the band video I found while searching for their songs.  Please enjoy!  Let me know what you thing about them!
