Music Meanderings

I wouldn't consider myself a music person, but I do go through phases where I prefer to have music playing while I work. I'm going through a music phase at the moment (and remember going through one around this time last year too...) and have been loving the playlist on this tumblr, Bohemian Spirit.

Do you go through music phases? What are you listening to lately?

Only Girl (In The World)

Morning!!

Today's musical inspiration comes from Rihanna's Only Girl. I'd heard this song before, but only downloaded it this weekend, and it's been on constant repeat ever since! A little girly, a little bad-ass, and a lot of awesome beats!


I want you to love me, like I'm a hot ride
Be thinkin' of me, doin' what you like
So boy forget about the world cause it's gon' be me and you tonight
I'm gonna make your beg for it, then imma make you swallow your pride


Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world
Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love
Like I'm the only one who knows your heart
Only girl in the world...


Like I'm the only one that's in command
Cause I'm the only one who understands how to make you feel like a man, yeah
Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world
Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love
Like I'm the only one who knows your heart
Only one...


Want you to take it like a thief in the night
Hold me like a pillow, make me feel right
Baby I'll tell you all my secrets that I'm keepin', you can come inside
And when you enter, you ain't leavin', be my prisoner for the night, oh


Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world
Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love
Like I'm the only one who knows your heart
Only girl in the world...


Like I'm the only one that's in command
Cause I'm the only one who understands how to make you feel like a man, yeah
Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world
Like I'm the only one that you'll ever love
Like I'm the only one who knows your heart  
Only one...


Take me for a ride, ride
Oh baby, take me high, high
Let me take you by surprise
Oh make it last all night, night
Take me for a ride, ride
Oh baby, take me high, high
Let me take you by surprise
Make it last all night


Want you to make me feel like I'm the only girl in the world.

A little bad-ass-ery is always necessary on a Monday :)

Hope you all have a fab day!!

Firework

You know those people? Those people that you've always known, but one day you realize life wouldn't be the same without them? Those people that make you smile at the most random times because you remembered something that they did or said? Those people that you can trust with things that most people never know? Those good people?

I had one of those realizations a couple days ago.

So today's post is dedicated to those awesome people. The good ones.

Thanks for the song Katy Perry.


Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
Like a house of cards, one blow from caving in?
Do you know that there's still a chance for you
'Cause there's a spark in you?


You just gotta ignite the light and let it shine
Just own the night like the 4th of July


'Cause baby, you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh 
As you shoot across the sky


Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down


You don't have to feel like a waste of space
You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow


'Cause baby you're a firework
Come on, show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go, oh
As you shoot across the sky


Baby, you're a firework
Come on, let your colors burst
Make 'em go, oh
You're gonna leave 'em falling down


Boom, boom, boom
Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon
It's always been inside of you, you, you
And now it's time to let it through


'Cause baby you're a firework

 Hope you all have a lovely Monday :)

We Belong Together

Quick note, sorry for the later post today. Last night and this morning were a little hectic and I wasn't able to prepare a post ahead of time because I wanted to do it on the Oscars, which didn't really work out anyways...

I was going to make today's post a sort of Oscar dress re-cap with pretty rooms, but after seeing the dresses, I wasn't feeling as inspired. It's not that they were all horrible, but nothing really stood out to me, with the exception of Cate Blanchett's. And whether you loved or hated it, you have to admit that her dress was a work of art.

But it's hard to a dress post with only one dress, so instead, I thought I'd do my usual Music Monday and give it an Oscar twist :)

Toy Story was the movie of my childhood. So I may be a little biased, but I absolutely adore them! You've Got A Friend In Me is like, so amazing, and We Belong Together from the newest movie is just as awesome. And it won an Academy Award, so you know, it's official then haha

So here's a little bit from the song, and some pretty pictures that I thought were fitting :)


When we're together,
Clear skies are clear, oh.


And I'll share them, till where I'm less depressed.
And it's sincerely, from the bottom of my heart,
 

I just can't take it when we're apart. 


We belong together,
We belong together.
Yes, we do,
You'll be mine, forever.

(I'm a sucker for cute animal photos, so I couldn't resist putting one it!)


Hope you all have a had a lovely day!

Rolling In The Deep

Morning all!! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend! Mine was spent with my fam-jam here at home doing not much of anything :) (Finally saw Inception...and I'm still confused haha Might have to rewatch it...)

Happy Family Day to my friends here in Canada! And I believe it's President's Day for my friends in the US :) Yay for long weekends!! Is it a holiday anywhere else?

Today's music feature is Adele's Rolling In The Deep from her new album 21. I believe it has already launched in the UK, and will be released tomorrow here in North America. Someone Like You is also just as amazing! I've heard her music before, but lately these songs are just constantly stuck in my head!


There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark
Finally, I can see you crystal clear.


Go ahead and sell me out and I'll lay your ship there.
See how I leave, with every piece of you
Don't underestimate the things that I will do.
There's a fire starting in my heart,
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bringing me out the dark


The scars of your love, remind me of us.
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling... 


We could have had it all... (you're gonna wish you, never had met me)...
Rolling in the Deep (Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
Your had my heart... (you're gonna wish you)... and soul in your hand (Never had met me)
And you played it... (Tears are gonna fall)... To the beat (Rolling in the deep)
 

Baby I have no story to be told,
But I've heard one of you and I'm gonna make your head burn.
Think of me in the depths of your despair.
Making a home down there, it reminds you of the home we shared.
 

The scars of your love, remind me of us.
They keep me thinking that we almost had it all
The scars of your love, they leave me breathless
I can't help feeling...
 
We could have had it all... (you're gonna wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the Deep...(Tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
Your had my heart... (you're gonna wish you)... and soul in your hand (Never had met me)
And you played it... (Tears are gonna fall)... To the beat (Rolling in the deep)
 

Could have had it all
Rolling in the deep.
You had my heart inside of your hand,
But you played it to the beat.
 

Throw your soul through every open door (Whoa)
Count your blessings to find what you look for (Whoa-uh)
Turn my sorrow into treasured gold (Whoa)
You pay me back in kind and reap just what you sow.
 

(You're gonna wish you... Never had met me)
We could have had it all (Tears are gonna fall... Rolling in the deep)
We could have had it all yeah ( you're gonna wish you... never had met me)
It all. (Tears are gonna fall)
It all
It all (Rolling in the deep)
 

We could have had it all ( you're wish you never had met me)
Rolling in the deep (tears are gonna fall, rolling in the deep)
You had my heart... ( you're gonna wish you)... and soul in your hand (Never had met me)
But you played it
You played it.
You played it.
You played it to the beat.


I've got an exciting new series starting tomorrow so be sure to come check it out! I'm kind of super excited about it haha I've had SO much fun putting it together!

Hope you all have a lovely week!

Fire In Your New Shoes

This song has been on almost constant repeat on my iTunes for the last few days, so I thought it was appropriate to do a Music Monday post on it :)


I like that outfit the zippers pinchin
But if you want it any tighter we can cinch it
Dress up in leather wear every color
I'm going roco-co with sequins in the summer


So come twirl your dresses around
Lift your cotton socks on
And turn your cameras on now for the fun


While I light a fire in your new shoes
If you should smile and look so surprised
While I light a fire in your new shoes
Let's hope that your soles don't burn to the floor


I light the fire
I light the fire


Buttons are busted we're decorated
We make an ornament with gold and silver plating
So what's the latest we raise a fever
We're just all red inside that's all to see here


Yeah we're red inside we're all red inside
And the leg bones connected to the one in the thigh
We're red inside we're all red inside
And the leg bones connected to the one in the thigh
 

So come o-o-o
Twirl your dresses around und-und-und
Lift your cotton socks sock-sock-sock-sock
Turn your cameras o-o-o-o-o

While I light a fire in your new shoes
If you should smile and look so surprised
While I light a fire in your new shoes
Let's hope that your soles don't burn to the floor
 

While I light a fire
I light a fire


Happy Monday!

xo,
B

Symphonic

I've always liked the idea of Music Monday's, but I'm not a huge music buff; most of my music comes from friends or tv shows. But I thought that picking pieces based on a song would be right up my alley :)

Todays's song is Symphonic by Emm Gryner. I first heard it, probably 5-ish years ago, and it's been in my music library ever since. Sorry for the photo-montage video; the only videos I could find on Youtube were all like this.


You're running through the underground,
hiding your real first name
I always said, you were the real star,
you move like a hurricane
Through the pain

London Underground
 You said, don't forget about me, don't forget about me
Like I'd ever forget about you
How could I just change my mind?
When all the sun shines down on you
Everyone's a lie, but you're so true
You're symphonic, you're the light of the moon
How could I forget you?

Cousins
There's a whisper in the limo, thousands of miles away
But, there are no lies in your blue eyes, only a summer day
Oh, a sweet summer day

Remember When
Where all the sun shines down on you
Everyone's a lie, but you're so true
You're symphonic, you're the light of the moon
How could I forget you?

Wolf Moon
 You're a star, a dream that never ends
Fireworks around the bend
An angel on the river Thames
You must know you're all the lights on new years eve
Quiet on the raging sea
How could I forget you?
How could I forget you?

You said, don't forget about me,

Don't forget about me

Remember Me

Wishing you all a happy Monday!
