Music Monday: Jenna

So I almost did not post today because I posted yesterday and I normally do not post on Sundays. But I really wanted to do a Music Monday. My second issue was I did not want to post Christmas music this week. The Christmas playlist is coming next week! So instead I wanted to introduce you to a new singer who is close to me. I do not want to tell you my thoughts on this singer because I feel I am bias since I personally know this person. I would rather you discover your own opinion about her and hope that if you like her you will share videos and vines with your friends and help her out.

I would like you to meet Jenna. She is my best friends sister and has recently started to put her name out their with a few YouTube videos and vines and also a few open mike nights here in Colorado. I have a few of my favorite YouTube and Vine videos down below that I hope you will view.  😀

Music Monday: Holly Jolly Christmas

Instead of making a spotify playlist filled with Christmas songs I decided to shake things up. Here is Jennifer Lawrence on David Letterman. Yes this is a interview but the last minute of the interview David and Jennifer break out in song. Even though Jennifer doesn’t like to sing I thought she did a wonderful job not only singing the Hanging Tree in Mockingjay and a small Christmas song with David, but also the Meadow song in the first hunger games movie.

Music Monday: The Hanging Tree

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Over Thanksgiving break I went and saw Mockingjay for the second time and like the first time The Hanging Tree has been stuck in my head. I have officially learned all the words to this song. And even though Jennifer Lawrence doesn’t like to sing I think she did a wonderful job with this song. So for you today on my spotify playlist I have the Jennifer Lawrence version of The Hanging Tree. You’re welcome!

 

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run,
So we’d both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of hope,
Side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run,
So we’d both be free.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
They strung up a man
They say who murdered three.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Are you, are you
Coming to the tree
Where dead man called out
For his love to flee.
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met at midnight
In the hanging tree.

Music Mondays: Bands to be Thankful for.

Thanksgiving is this week and so for this music monday I have made a playlist for a few bands that have impacted my life in a manger way.

In the comments send a link of a playlist or a youtube video of your favorite bands that you are thankful for. Music has shaped and changed my life. It has been there for me when I needed someone to listen to, when I needed someone to have the same feelings that I have. I am thankful that this life has so many great bands that not only to help me, but to help others as well.

This is Gospel – Panic! At the Disco
Car Radio-Twenty One Pilots
Centuries – Fall Out Boy
Flaws – Bastille

Music Monday: Super Smash Ruby Mockingjay

This week there is a LOT going on. And to be honest it was like everyone who was releasing something awesome came together and deiced to have it al released on the same day. Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U is being released at midnight on Friday the 21st. Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire are being released at midnight on Friday the 21st. And if you are a fan of the Hunger Games you may know that Mockingjay part 1 comes out at midnight on Friday the 21st.

For me this sucks so bad. So what am I going to do?

Because I live in Colorado and there was a theater shooting a year and a half ago many theaters show new releases earlier than midnight. Though I do love the midnight release, my BFF and I decided to go to the 8 p.m release of Mokingjay part 1 on Thursday the 20th. When we get out of the movie we are going to GameStop to pick up our Pokémon games at midnight.

So for this music Monday to get you pumped for these awesome releases I have three music videos to share with you, one for each release. I hope you enjoy them!

Super Smash Bros

Pokemon

Mockingjay

Music Mondays: Meet Honey

I am introducing to the world my character Honey this NaNoWriMo if you did not know. And as I started to write on day 1 I made him a playlist to help me get through the first 1,600 or so words. I think music is very important in our time because it’s everywhere. And Honey expresses himself through music. So for this Music Monday I have made a spotify playlist of songs from Honey. I also like promised for most of these Music Mondays have a small time band that I feel needs more fans because they are awesome.

Meet Feralux, our small time band for this week. Hailing from my hometown of Colorado, Feralux is a new band that made themselves known last year during Channel 93.3’s Home Town for the Holidays. Though they did not win Home Town for e Holidays last year they defiantly won my heart. If you want to check them out here is a link to their Facebook page.

Happy NaNoWriMo to all!

Take Me To Church – Hozier

Riptide – Vance Joy

DollHouse – Melarle Martinez

Bang Bang – Jessie J, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj

Above the Stars – Feralux
