On Repeat: Divide

Ever since the day this album dropped I have listened to it in full at least once a day. (usually more… #notevensorry).

A friend told me the album should just be renamed ” your future wedding songs”

and I couldn’t agree more.

If you haven’t heard it yet- sit back and get ready to be gut punched in the feels. (No joke- just wait until you get to Save Myself. )

But for real- how do I get my very own Ed Sheeran?

Most Played Song:

it is a tie between “Dive” and “Perfect”

Anyone else obsessed with Divide?

I’m pretty sure we need to build an ark…

I’ve been MIA the last week, mostly due to spending the week packing, the weekend moving, and then Sunday at urgent care making sure I didn’t have strep throat. (Not to worry, it wasn’t strep)

And now it is  another work week

And it has been raining for what seems like forever

But it is still hot and humid (Alabama weather is weird)

But that is all okay, Because Pretty Little Liars comes back on today.

and in honor of PLL and my obsession with Lucy Hale I have had her new album on repeat all weekend.

I don’t what it, but this song makes me smile every time I hear it.

 

Turn it DOWN Tuesday: This doesn’t make me Happy.

Every few months there is at least one song on the radio that I cannot wait for its death.

Right now that song for me is “Happy” by Pharrell.

I don’t know what it is about this song, but I can’t stand it.

It in no way makes me happy (it actually just induces rage. Seriously it is a terrible song, why is it played EVERYWHERE?!)

Yet, I feel like the loner on this hatred.

But I really hope what ever Pharrell comes up with next is way better than this.

Turn It Up Tuesday: I don’t even know…

Who are these kids?

Where did they come from?

This video doesn’t make sense

Why does this sound like something from 2002?

Why am I still listening to this?

Is it wrong to think the lead singer is cute? ***

How do I already know all the words?

Crap.. I’m hooked. 

***The answer- yes it is  wrong..

Turn it up Tuesday: Everything is a learning experience

I have been an MIA blogger this past week (personal issues and what not)

Sorry ❤

I’ve been a whole bunch of emotions, but I guess that is what happens.

But now it is over, done with and it is time to move on.

And get back to things that are happy and fun.

and less stupid.

But in the words of my best friend “Treat everything like a learning experience”

oh and to listen to a lot of Kelly Clarkson!

Karaoke Queen

At some point in my life, karaoke has become a go to for every emotion.

Got Dumped??

Let’s go to karaoke and sing angry chick music

Promotion?!

Let’s go celebrate at karaoke

Engaged?!?

We have to go to karaoke to and sing love songs

Random Thursday night?!

LET’S SING ALL THE SONGS

During this time of karaoke craziness I have learned there are two kind of  karaoke people. Those who take karaoke WAY too seriously and those who give no fucks and just want to have fun.

 Yet even with those two extremes,  personally I believe that every die heart karaoke queen (or king) has the same basic pattern when choosing the perfect karaoke songs.

We all have:

Our “Never fail go to song/artist”:

No matter how “bad” a singer you are, we all have that one song or artist that we can feel pretty comfortable doing as a karaoke song. For me that is Pat Benatar. It is a scientifically proven fact that if it is a karaoke night I will start the night with one of her songs. Why.. because I like to think I live in the 80’s and because she has a similar vocal range.

Our “Audience Favorites”:

After 3 years of doing karaoke at a sports bar I have learned that this can change weekly. Depending on the age of the crowd that is there.(or if you are at a sports bar it can depend on if the home team won or lost). But of course there are some never fail songs.. ” Don’t stop believing” ,  Any Boy Band or Pop star from the 90’s, or ” Pour Some Sugar on Me.”  have always proven to be instant crowd favorites.

Basically anything that at least 80 percent of the people in the bar can sing along with is usually a good starting point.

I like to go with “I think were alone now” or if I am with Miss Jaime “Wanted Dead or Alive”

Our “Random Group Sing Along”:

Every group of girls who goes to karaoke has this song. It is the one song that you don’t really  sing as much as you can just say all the words. (or if you have had enough to drink you- just yell the chorus because it is the only part you know) But it doesn’t matter because you are just here to have fun.

(this is usually not a song choice that the “I take karaoke way to seriously” people usually have fun with)

And lastly:

 Our “I don’t even care I’m drunk and I’m going to sing it no matter what you say” songs:

These are the songs you’ll hear at about an hour an a half before closing time. No matter what you tell yourself, you sound terrible.  Worst part is, deep down you know you sound terrible. But  you sing these songs no matter what. And everyone else is also drunk so really there isn’t anyone who is going to stop you.

When my liquid courage kicks in I like to convince myself that I can be both Aretha Franklin and Katy Perry.(not at the same time, though I’m probably sure I have tried)

 I can not be either of them.. ever. Not matter what Jack Daniels says

 When those words come out of my mouth you know it is time to take the sign up pen away from me and hand me a water.

Turn It Up Tuesday: You can take the girl out of the city….

I don’t  like to dwell on tragic events in the past. But I do know the importance of remembering. And that is what I plan to do.

With that said…

..it feels perfectly acceptable to have this song on repeat today. (and everyday really. I mean come this song is great) Along with spending the day listening to RadioBDC.
