Music Monday?

Not only is this week’s Music Monday video not┬ábeing posted on Monday but it is also not a video….

Well friends, here is the project I have been working on. I am so new to this music mixing thing it’s not even funny. I had so much fun though. So much so that I went out and bought a new laptop. The one I used for this project was on its last leg for sure. I used a free downloadable program. I started with the instrumental of “Centuries” by Fall Out Boy and added whatever I thought sounded interesting. Boy do I have a lot to learn. I don’t listen to this track myself much because I spend the whole time criticizing my work. There are many mistakes in this one but hopefully there will come a day when I can look back at this project and chuckle at how much I had to learn and how far I have come.

Hey, we all have to start somewhere right?????

I know this song is everywhere and it probably getting totally over played on the radio but I just can’t get enough of it! This might be my favorite cover of this song so far! I wonder if I can get PC to sport that hat? I wouldn’t mind that at all…

I have this crazy fascination with the dancing elderly. How cute is that? I love to see that music remains in the soul even if your body can’t move like it used to. It reminds me that we are not that different from one another. Age, physical abilities, race, religion…none of that matters. Music can unite all of us. If only everyone saw it that way..

Music Monday Birthday!

I am a few hours late with this post but I still have to post it. I loved this man and do to this day. What better day to post a music video from JBJ than on his birthday?

This song means a lot to me. My classmates and I (in the 6th grade) sang this song together on the last day of school. We had had a very stressful couple of years and we were now moving on to middle school. It was emotional because we lost a very dear friend the year before and I don’t know about them, but I still hadn’t recovered. I still struggle with her death. She was my very best friend and an amazing spirit. She suffered from Spina Bifida but it was a complication from her MD that took her life.

This was the first death I had ever experienced. I was 11 years old when she passed (12 yrs old the day of her funeral). Yeah, that birthday sucked! Anyhow, my home life was chaos and I looked to her for strength. For hope. For a smile. And she delivered, every time. And she didn’t even know it! I wasn’t sure what I would do without her.

So I did what I always did when I needed to escape reality, I turned to music. Bon Jovi was played often. Ok, often is an understatement really. I was addicted. Between me and my cousin, we had every album he had released. We were the ultimate “directioners” back in the day. Today’s teens have no idea how to be a #1 fan! Hehe. Because of artists like Bon Jovi, I learned at a very young age Music is what feelings sound like!

So today I say Happy Birthday John Francis Bongiovi Jr and thank you for all your support throughout the years!

If it wasn’t Music Monday I would have written about Dr. Seuss. Today he would have been 111 years old. Happy Birthday Theodor Seuss Geisel and thank you for proving how powerful imagination can be. “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive that is youer than you”…

I’m taking a break from posting mash-ups. Not an easy task for me because I have a great selection of them. But….

Introducing… Boyce Avenue.

If you haven’t heard these guys, you must check them out. This is one of their originals. It’s called “On my way”.

This album is amazing! They started out doing covers on youtube. That is where my sister and I found them. Alejandro, the lead singer, did a cover of “Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis. I was hooked after seeing that video. I have seen them live several times and also had the chance to meet all 3 of them. That was back in the day, when tickets to their concerts were like 20 bucks and they were performing in venues that only held 50 people or so. They are very nice guys as well as talented. I saw them on America’s Got Talent. Not as contestants but they were the musicians on stage for the contestants.

I will probably post more of their songs/covers at some point.

I have another doctor’s appt tomorrow so I will save my health update for later on this week.

Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking out loud” and Sam Smith’s “Not the only one”

I have been obsessed with “mash-ups” for as long as I can remember. So it is an understatement to say I am so excited that others have not only caught on but decided to share these with the world! This version is genius! It makes me forget all of my struggles and makes my heart smile! I have a hard time not tearing up while listening to it.

I wish I had the guts to set up a mic and do this myself. Some day I will.

On a side note, I emailed our real estate agent late last night to share another property with him. I asked if he could set up a tour of the home for us today. Let’s see if he is “too busy” this time. I know it’s short notice but isn’t that what he gets paid for? If we don’t see the house first, how can we put the first offer in? If this turns out like the last one I may have to find another agent. So, even though this house is not as spectacular as the last one was (in the photos), I’m crossing my fingers. Maybe it will be more amazing in person than in the pics. The last one was. As a matter of fact, the last home made me wonder why agents don’t find beginner photographers to take the pictures they post on these sites. Some of the photos are just horrible! It looks like someone just used an old cell phone. It would be so helpful if they spent a little more time on quality photos. I scroll right past the homes that don’t have pictures or as soon as I come across a blurry one. Why would you post a blurry picture of the house you want to sell?? Anyhow, fingers are crossed!

So I realized that last week I posted the wrong video. Although it turned out to be a pretty good video itself, it was not the one I was trying to share. Here is the video I intended to post. It fits right in with my “mash-up” theme.

This is a great video showcasing some amazing talent! It is not easy to hear an instrumental and be able to sing several different songs with it, I know, I’ve tried. I’m spending a lot of time with the program I mentioned before. I think I am getting the hang of it now. There is still a whole lot for me to learn but I am almost finished with my first project. It still needs a ton of touch ups before i let anyone but PC hear it. Hopefully I will be able to share it soon.

Still no word from the doctor about her opinion of my test results. I guess i will give her a call in the morning.
