In honor of the film version of Rock of Ages coming out in theaters this past weekend, I thought I’d pull a rock ballad that we could rock out to. If you’ve been feeling alone and down, let this one pick you back up, because you can really only appreciate this one on your own.
For a lot of rock and a little fun, please enjoy “Here I Go Again” by Whitesnake. Laugh out loud at the ridiculous glam rock hair and if you can’t help yourself from swinging your hair along with the music too, don’t be afraid.
(And what does dancing on top of cars have to do with anything? We’re still trying to figure that one out.)
More music from the Queen B. What can we say, Beyonce just gets us.
The emotions that we go through as women can be so hard to put into words sometimes. It’s like something clicks when you listen to “If I Were a Boy” and the story in the video for really helps bring it home when Beyonce plays a little role reversal. “Yes, that’s exactly what’s been going through my mind, Beyonce, thank you!”
When you feel like no one else gets what you’re going through right now, give this song a listen (take a look at the view count) and remember you’re not alone.
Beyonce – If I Were a Boy
What other songs from Beyonce have helped you through tough times?
When JoJo released “Leave (Get Out)” in the early 2000′s it quickly rose to the top of the charts. If that wasn’t impressive enough, at age 13, this song made her the youngest solo artist to have a number-one single in the United States. 13 years old! Can you believe it?
If you ask us, she tells it pretty well for a 13-year-old, not to mention she’s got a killer voice.
Sing it, girl! You know just what we need to move on.
Happy Memorial Day, bombshells!
I hope that you were able to enjoy some R&R this holiday weekend. If you happen to still be looking for an adventure to enjoy on this Music Monday, we can send you on a little adventure with Of Monsters and Men.
Ready to take a journey at sea and conquer some odd looking monsters? Here we go! Take a look at “Little Talks” from Of Monsters and Men.
What else have you done this weekend?
Never has such a powerful song been aided by really cool banjo riffs. Seriously, who would have thought that we’d be jamming out a banjo like this?
We can’t be clear about exactly what the situation is in Little Lion Man. It seems to speak to us about coping with a mistake or other significant moment in life and maybe it’s a breakup…maybe it’s not.
In an interview the lead singer, Marcus Mumford, wouldn’t tell the full story but he did have this to say about the song:
“It was a situation in my life I wasn’t very happy with or proud of… and sometimes when you can’t describe a feeling with your own words, it’s almost easier to express in a song.”
How awesome for us to get to listen this, especially if right now the right words to express what you’re going through just aren’t coming. I hope that, whatever you find in this song, it’s cathartic for you.
Do you know just how awesome you all are? Seriously. In case you needed a reminder, today’s Music Monday is brought to you by one of the fantastically awesome people in the Pink Kisses community: Shereen. She shared with us her own personal playlist that she’s using to move past her break-up and for kicking ass in the adventures she has ahead.
Here’s our pick for this week: Dixie Chicks – Not Ready to Make Nice. Because let’s face it, you’re probably still mad as hell and that’s okay right now.
If this song is exactly what you needed right now, be sure to thank your girl, Shereen. Thanks, doll!
Once upon a time there was an all-female trio, called TLC, who graced the airwaves with songs to empower all women, especially in their relationships.
Girls, you should never settle for less than you deserve. T-Boz, Left Eye and Chilli all knew the same thing, so they put it all in a little song for us called, “No Scrubs.”
When you’re done rocking out and continue to move on, remember: “Just say NO…to scrubs.”
Keri Hilson, Kanye and Ne-Yo. Three R&B superstars who really know how to make a hit on their own teamed together to remind us of something so simple:
Sometimes loves comes around and it knocks you down,
Just get back up when it knocks you down
And you know what? You’re not alone. We’ve felt the same pain after heartbreak and we’re all here as living proof that you do get back up again.
We’re taking you back to 1989, when Paula Abdul was all hot moves and lyrics. Damn, we wish we could dance like she did.
Maybe you can master the moves to her song,Cold Hearted. Okay, maybe get a kick out of trying in front of the mirror instead.
If you’re not inspired to get up and dance, she at least speaks for everyone when she says, “You deserve somebody better, girl.” Remember that.
Love love love the voices of Tegan and Sara. They’re an edgy, badass duo…and yes, they happen to be identical twins. When they sing Walking With a Ghost, it has a pretty simple statement:
No matter which way you go
No matter which way you stay
You’re out of my mind, out of my mind
Out of my mind, out of my mind
