This is my entry for “A” for the A to Z Challenge. ABBA is an all-time favorite of mine! In case you have been hiding under a rock, or you’re too young to know, and your parents didn’t bother to teach you the great classic stuff, ABBA is (or was) a Swedish is a Swedish…… Continue reading “A” is for ABBA
Really, Miss Swift… Look what you made me do! #lwymmd I started writing about one perfectly but subtly amazing day, supposedly with three music videos that contributed to its “perfectness”, yet this post, on the power that is Taylor Swift, will most probably be published even before ‘One Perfect Day’. I write this not to…… Continue reading Look what you made me do #LWYMMD
I guess this is dedicated to hubby, kids, family, friends and loved ones. Yeah, you are (all) my flashlights. It is a sweet life, after all… even when it’s an effort to see. …when in the dark! https://youtu.be/DzwkcbTQ7ZE Flashlight by Jessie J When tomorrow comes I’ll be on my own Feeling frightened of The things…… Continue reading You get me through the night
I am posting my “get-happy” song for today because I need it and it helps. I hope it’s contagious. Enjoy! 🙂 https://youtu.be/BD_vt-pXs5Q And here’s a bonus one because it’s a good reminder that your true colors bring the joy… I think. https://youtu.be/Bp9qOlKB0F4 Justin is just super talented! Anna, too.
This post isn’t about Mikey Bustos although it may seem like it. I am sharing a few of his videos about what it means to be Filipino. I am not very good at being one at all. Mikey is a famous Canadian-born (and bred) Filipino YouTuber. However, from what I read on Wiki, there’s more…… Continue reading What it means to be Filipino
I’ve been listening to Katharine McPhee since last week. The songs remind me of a certain juncture in my life not so long ago. I had mentioned here that I was doing some research in preparation for a piece that I want to write. This piece involves that almost-gentleman for whom I wrote a tribute.…… Continue reading Better Off Alone
After almost an eternity – not! – I heard Boyzone on the radio. Oh, I listen to Jacaranda FM, Gauteng Province’s “Afrikaans station”, as far as I’m concerned. (The DJs still speak Afrikaans). They play the hits of the “80s, 90s, and now”. The song was “You Needed Me”. While hubby had never heard of…… Continue reading More cheesy than cool
By: Kenny Rogers https://youtu.be/S4WvK442P6U A real classic for me. 🙂 Please excuse me; I couldn’t find an official Kenny Rogers music video with this song. I’m not that old but this song was – as the youth says these days – “relationship goal”!
“I’ve been standing at the edge of the water ‘Long as I can remember, never really knowing why I wish I could be the perfect daughter But I come back to the water, no matter how hard I try Every turn I take, every trail I track Every path I make, every road leads back…… Continue reading How Far I’ll Go
It’s catchy! And, it’s Katy. Even with “Boom, boom, boom | Even brighter than the moon, moon, moon…” and “Make ’em go, “Aah, aah, aah” | As you shoot across the sky-y-y…” the lyrics are definitely so much better and have more substance than that song about work. Peace! “Do you ever feel already buried…… Continue reading Shoot across the sky
