MusicPlaylister: Rainy Days

After the horror fest of this weekend, I’m ready to curl up on my couch with some new tracks and recover from the sugar rush—especially in this rainy winter weather. If you’re still enjoying blue skies, I’ve got mad jealousy! 

Missy Elliot – “I Can’t Stand The Rain”
 
 
 
Missaaaaaay! I love this woman more than is probably healthy, and it cannot be denied: her tunes are fresher than a new loaf of bread. This old school Missy track is what got me on the Elliot train in the first place, and I’ve never looked back. Lulettes, she is supa dupa fly. 


Bill Withers – “Ain’t No Sunshine”
 
 
Bill Withers’ smooth vocals and delivery make this song a must have for your car, your ipod, or mix cd for that special someone in your life—trust me on this one, folks. Plus, check out his sweet turtleneck!  Amazing.
 


Rupert Holmes – “Escape (The Pina Colada Song)”
 
If you don’t like this song, you’re nuts! Cute lyrics and a catchy as hell melody make for a delightful storytelling song—and, c’mon: everyone likes pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. Everyone. 

 

MusicPlaylister: Time for a Little POP?

I’m no snob about pop music. After all, what do you sing at the top of your lungs with all your buddies? A pop song, that’s what. Here are my favorite singalongs on the charts right now:

Neon Trees – “Animal”

I love the scratchy vocals and the tempo of this song. Neon Trees has been climbing the charts with this winner and I say good for them! This is a great track from an overall snappy album that has been a big hit on my stereo lately.


Adele – “Make You Feel My Love”

Oh my goodness, this song is beautiful. Adele’s rich, sultry voice is perfectly matched to the vulnerability in these lyrics and video. Currently at #20 on the UK charts, this slow, gorgeous song is sure to win a special place in your heart.

The Wanted – “All Time Low”

OMG hot boy band! Ignore their stiff, wannabe male model poses and all around cheesy video and just concentrate on their dreamy (and varied!) facial structures, hairstyles, and outfits—all while bobbing your head along to this kick ass dance jam! I love this song for it’s catchy hook of a melody and the British accents that peek into their singing voices. Adorable!
