Music Monday (38): Kendrick Lamar, SZA, & Jorja Smith; a.k.a. This Is About Black Panther; I Have No Regrets

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 

Breana: I thought I had this post all planned out. I'd already decided on which songs I would talk about, but then, the Black Panther movie soundtrack happened and I was done for. Oh well. I have no regrets. But, can we just talk about how awesome All the Stars by Kendrick Lamar and SZA is? Not only that, but the music video is visually stunning...



There are so many good songs from the album. It's hard to choose just two to talk about. My second pick is I Am by Jorja Smith. It's lit.



I have to admit, this is one of my favorite movie soundtracks, and I highly recommend listening to the whole album. It's worth it...

Breana: Lately, I’ve been in a mood where all I want to listen to is older music. As such, my first pick is Physical by Olivia Newton-John. The one I’m talking about today is her live performance at the Sydney Opera House. It’s a gorgeous version of the song; although, if you haven’t heard the original then I recommend giving it a listen too.



My second pick is No Scrubs by TLC. I cannot accurately describe how much I love this song. Also, the esthetic of the music video is still one of my all-time favorites.



Of course, I’ve been listening to more than just the above mentioned songs including music by Samantha Fox, Pretty Poison, and SOS Band, among many others. What are you listening to this week?

Music Monday (36): Miguel, Kehlani, Les Friction, and Shirley Bassey

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 

Breana: I haven’t participated in Music Monday since December of last year. So, I figured that now was a good time to get back into the other weekly meme we participate in here on Our Thoughts Precisely. My first pick is Waves by Miguel. I haven’t listened to his music in a while. But while listening to google music, his song, Waves, came on, and instantly my thoughts were: “I love this song and it’s time to listen to it on repeat.”


My second pick is In My Feelings by Kehlani. Her album, Sweet Sexy Savage, was one of my favorites from 2017. So much so that I went out and bought the Target edition of the CD with the extra songs. Yeah. Anyway, In My Feelings is one of my favorite songs by Kehlani; although, I recommend giving the entire album a listen, because it’s so good.

Adri: My picks for Music Monday are both remakes of songs that I like. They are Kashmir by Les Friction –originally performed by Led Zeppelin, and Slave to the Rhythm by Shirley Bassey –originally sung by Grace Jones.

Music Monday (34): Holiday Music Part 2

Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 
Breana: Continuing with last week’s theme, I have another new favorite holiday song to talk about this week. I listen to a lot of Sia’s music, and just like Lindsey Stirling, she released a holiday album just in time for December: Everyday is Christmas. I like the whole album. So, it was difficult to pick just one song to focus on today. But, my pick this week is Candy Cane Lane. Listen, I like candy cane, which is part of the reason why I like this song. I mean, beside the fact that it’s just a good song. If you haven’t listened to it yet, I definitely recommend doing that now.



____________________________________________________________________________

Adri: This week, my pick is This Christmas by Mary Jane Blige.

Music Monday (33): Holiday Music Part 1

Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 
Breana: This is one post I always look forward to writing. And this year is no different, except for the fact that there have been a lot of holiday albums released just in time for December. My pick this week is Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy by Lindsey Stirling. I was already a fan of Stirling’s music before she released her holiday album, Warmer in the Winter. Needless to say, I’ve been enjoying it. One of my favorites from the album is Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy, which also has a gorgeous music video.

 
____________________________________________________________________________
Adri: For this Music Monday, I’m choosing  Christmas C ’mon also by Lindsey Stirling; featuring vocals from Becky G, this song appears on the same album. I think I like this song because she preformed it on Dancing with the Stars on the outside stage, albeit, I attended the inside portion… but hey, we got to see the finale performances. Honestly, on a side note, I found her freestyle performance on the first night of the finale exciting. After the finale, we got her CD ASAP.

Music Monday (32): Purity Ring

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 
Breana: It’s been some time since I lasted participated in Music Monday, but I honestly haven’t had any new songs to share. However, this past week, I’ve been listened to Google Play Music again and have discovered some new music by a familiar artist that I want to share.

I haven’t listened to Purity Ring (the band) since their 2012 album, Shrines, which is one of my favorites in the electronic (electropop/synthpop) genre. I’m actually a little surprised that I missed the release of their second album, Another Eternity, back in 2015. Suffice it to say, I’ve been listening to Another Eternity all weekend. I really love the sound of the album and it does remind me a little of Grimes’s Art Angel album, but it’s still unique. A couple of songs in particular are my favorite. My first pick is Begin Again. I love everything about this song, and the beat sounds particularly fantastic with headphones on.


My second pick is Repetition, which is the song I heard while listening to Google Play Music. Without Repetition I might have continued to overlook Another Eternity altogether.

Have you discovered any new music this week?

Music Monday (31): Banks, Gorillaz, and Ameriie

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 
Breana: I haven’t participated in Music Monday in a while, because I honestly wasn’t listening to anything new. Well, during my absence, I’ve listened to everything from youtube channels that make songs based off video games—like NateWantsToBattle and JT Machinima—to Banks’s sophomore album, The Altar. For today, I’m going to just stick to Banks, specifically, The Altar. It’s not a new album since it came out back in 2016. It’s taken me till now to listen to the entire album, and I just have to say that I love it!

27 Hours is my first pick. Arguably, it’s my favorite song from the album. I love the sound of it. The beginning is good, but once the beat drops I’m just like “Yes.”


My second pick is Poltergeist. I also love this song for its sound. It just fits with the vibes given off by the rest of the album. I’m not going to lie. I’m a total fan of it.

Adri: For this Music Monday, I’m choosing two song that kept me up, literally. Towards the end of last week I delved into a sewing project that required attention to details. Consequently, I decided to stay up later than usual, so I needed songs that didn’t cause a snooze fest. Now, of course I listened to a lot of music, but these are two songs that I kept coming back to. These songs are Strobelite by Gorillaz feat. Peven Everett and Gotta Work by Ameriie.



On a side note, although the last video was posted in July, Ameriie has her own Youtube channel which consist of videos about books and beauty.

Music Monday (30): Black Eyed Peas, Disclosure and Lion Babe

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 

Breana: Lately, I’ve gone back and listened to a lot of favorite songs that I haven’t thought of in years. The last time I participated in Music Monday, I talked about Rock Angelz. Well, from there, I’ve gone back to Monkey Business by Black Eyed Peas, Lincoln Park, Christina Agulara, and even Gwen Stefani. Anyway, I’m here to talk about The Black Eyed Peas. Back in 2005 Monkey Business was my go-to music. No playlist, just the album. It’s hard to believe that Monkey Business has been out for twelve years already. My first pick is Disco Club. To this day, Disco club still has one of the catchiest beats I’ve ever heard. There’s something kind of groovy about this song. I love it.


 My second pick is Don’t Lie. After all these years, Don't Lie is still one of my favorite songs from the Monkey Business Album.

Adri:I have a small confession. There are moments in time that I don’t listen to music, at least not like that. When start listening to music again, the first thing I put in the search bar is my pick for Music Mondays: Hourglass by Disclosure featuring Lion Babe. Not only do I love this song but when I found it, I also found a new artist.

Music Monday (29) Throwback To Way Back When

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 

Breana: It has been a couple of weeks since we last participated in Music Monday. However, today is a bit of a throwback to the early 2000s, since my picks this week actually come from an album I haven’t listened to in more than five years: Bratz Rock Angelz. Does anyone else remember Bratz? I used to have a lot of the dolls and still have the Rock Angelz game for the Gameboy Advance SP. Anyway, over the weekend I remembered that I once had a CD, but I’ve moved several times and can’t recall where it is. Anyway, listening to this album again takes me right back to my childhood. Seriously, it really does. I used to listen to Rock Angelz all the time. I kind of wish that I never lost the CD, but it is what it is. The most surprising thing is how much I still like the entire album. It’s on iTunes and I’ve seriously considered buying it again.

My first pick is It Could Be Yours. Oh man, after all theses years I still love this song.


And my second pick is Who I Am. I can’t even begin to count how many times I've listened to this song. I used to listen to it on repeat because its one of my favorites from the album. Even though its been so long, Who I Am hasn't lost its charm. 



Adri: I love this album too. I had a different one than Breana. Sadly, I won't mention what happened to the one I had, but just know that it's gooonnnneee. I don't have much to say about these tracks, but when I heard Breana listening to them again I had a mega flashback too.

Music Monday (28) Halsey

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 
Breana:  A couple of weeks back, I mentioned that Halsey’s new album came out, and since then I’ve been pretty much listening to Hopeless Fountain Kingdom on repeat. I really love the look and sound of this album. So, I don’t have any new artist to talk about today, only a couple more of my favorite songs from Hopeless Fountain Kingdom. 

My first pick this week is Now or Never. Oh man, I love this song. There’s something about it that just speaks to me. Then again, I feel that way about the entire album so my opinion about the song is clearly biased.

 

My second pick is Bad at Love. I won’t waste time by explaining what I like about this song. All I have to say is: give it a listen.

Music Monday (27) Forever in Your Mind & TLC

   Rules:
  • Music Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren Stoolfire at Always Me that asks you to share one or two songs that you've recently enjoyed. For the rules, visit the page HERE 
Today, we are so excited to take part in Music Monday. We went to a couple of live shows last week and heard a couple of new songs that left us with a lasting impression.

For our first pick today, we're sharing Smooth by Forever in Your Mind.  Actually, we hadn't heard of this band before we went to a taping of Netflix’s new show Alexa & Katie, which stars Emory Kelly who is a part of the band. Emory Kelly and Ricky Garcia were there and sang impromptu. All we can say is the video doesn’t do it justice! They are also in the running for a Teen Choice Award, and needless to say, they will definitely get our votes!



Our second pick is Way Back by TLC. On Thursday, we went to the TLC Outdoor Mini-Concert at Jimmy Kimmel Live. They sang Way Back with Snoop Dogg, No Scrubs, Waterfalls, and It’s Sunny –with the first and latter songs being from their new album TLC—the latest addition to our CD collection.







*Breana will be handling comments*
We would love to hear your thoughts about these songs. What are you listening to this week?

   Rules:

Breana: I’ve been listening to a lot of film soundtracks lately—I blame all the movies I’ve been watching. **cough-cough Wonder Woman…cough** Of course, I’ve gone back and listened to Daft Punk’s Tron Legacy Album, and Pacific Rim’s entire OST. Anyway, my first pick this week is Derezzed by Daft Punk. This is one of my favorite songs from the Tron Legacy soundtrack.


I also started listening to Nero again because I was looking for music that had a Tron Legacy-ish vibe. And I found what I was looking for. Honestly, I can’t believe I forgot how much I liked Nero’s music. So, my second pick is Promises.
