Music March! Late 90s Week Finale.

Hello everyone,

I’ve done it again, I missed the last two days of Music March, but here I am today to share with you the final two 90’s music videos.

The two 90s songs I chose are “Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears and “I Want It That Way” by Backstreet Boys. I chose these two songs because they got me into listening to the late 90s teen pop era. I have the greatest memories watching these music videos on MTV, back when MTV actually played music videos.

Britney Spears – Baby One More Time

This song was the beginning of Britney Spears’s career, I remember I was so obsessed with this song. The song was released on October 23, 1998, through Jive Records and it became an instant hit. It reached number one in every country it charted in, including the United Kingdom, where it earned double-platinum certification from the British Phonographic Industry and became the country’s best-selling song of 1999.

The Backstreet Boys – I Want It That Way

It was released on April 12, 1999, as the lead single from their third studio album, Millennium. It was written by Max Martin and Andreas Carlsson, while Martin and Kristian Lundin produced it. This song was called the pop ballad of the year and it reached the number-one spot in more than 25 countries, including Austria, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

I hope you guys enjoyed these two songs, and thank you so much for keeping up with my Music March schedule. Again, my apologies for falling behind schedule! April will not have a theme, regular posts will return this week.

Thank you for visiting my blog and see you soon!

Music March! Kpop Week|Mamamoo – Paint Me.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Kpop Week!

Today I will be introducing MAMAMOO and their song “Paint” from their sixth mini album.

MAMAMOO debuted in 2014 and according to critics it was considered on the best Kpop debuts of 2014. The group consists of four members, Solar, Moonbyun, Wheein, and Hwasa.

I like to refer to MAMAMOO as a vocal power house, to me these girls have the best vocals in the Kpop industry or the best girl group with powerful vocals. “Paint Me” is a passionate pop ballad, the piano instrumentals and their vocals are enough to make this song complete. In the music video the girls are wearing four colors which are to represent the colors and stages of a relationship. White represents the uneventful period before meeting, yellow reflects the happiness that came with love, red refers to the passion, and blue stands in for the tears that arrived during hardships.

This is a beautiful and soulful song, and I think we need that more in Kpop.

Let me know what you think about the song in the comments section.

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!

Music March! Indie Week

Hello everyone,

It looks like I let my responsibilities in my personal life take over, therefore, that is why I haven’t posted anything from Thursday to today. My apologies, that’s why today I will post the Indie songs I’ve chosen for Thursday to Sunday in today’s post.

Rest assured this won’t happen next week with my Kpop countdown!

Now let’s begin.

Thursday

Young Mister is a US-based singer and songwriter accompanied by a band of talented musicians from across the southeast United States. He travels from coast to coast to build a fanbase. This song has a fresh sound with strong and expressive vocals.

Friday 

Tom Speight is a London-based singer and songwriter, there isn’t too much information regarding him and his work. However, he seems to go on tour a lot and always works hard to release new music. This is an upbeat, and happy song about running away with a lover and having an adventure.

Saturday

Wildermiss is an indie rock band based out of Denver, CO. Emma Cole (Vocals/Keys) joins past Red Fox Run members Josh Hester, Seth Beamer, and Caleb Thoemke to create music that has a retro upbeat energy.

Sunday

According to this musician’s website, this is what is stated in the bio section:

SYML is the moodier solo venture of Barcelona frontman and Seattle native Brian Fennell. As SYML, Fennell is more textural and sensory than Barcelona’s piano rock, framing his quiet, introspective songwriting in low-key synth-augmented soundscapes with austere piano parts and spectral vocals.

I hope you enjoyed these songs and my apologies for falling behind the posting schedule, this won’t happen next week. Also, next week is Kpop week, so Kpop lovers stay tuned for this.

See you soon!

Music March! Soundtrack Week |The Lion King! Pride Rock.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to the last post of Soundtrack Week!

Today I will be sharing one of my favorite tracks, from my all time favorite Disney movie, The Lion King.

Music March (1)

The Lion King soundtrack is a masterpiece and it many songs from the album won Academy Awards. One of my personal favorite track is Price Rock, the scene where Simba reclaims the throne that was stolen from him. This scene is so powerful, an equally powerful track is necessary. This is composed by Hans Zimmer, can you tell he is one of my favorite composers?

That is a wrap to Soundtrack Week, let me know in the comments section which was your favorite song I shared this week.

Stay tuned for Indie Week, starting tomorrow!

See you soon!

Music March! Soundtrack Week | Hunger Games – Safe & Sound

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Music March!

Today we are going back to 2012 to the Hunger Games. The Hunger Games soundtrack was amazing and I still have many of the songs on my playlist. One of my favourite songs from the first film was Safe and Sound, by Taylor Swift ft. The Civil Wars.

This is a beautiful soulful ballad, perfect main track for this amazing dystopian franchise.

Let me know what you think about this song 🙂

See you soon!

Music March! Soundtrack Week | Romeo and Juliet (1996) – Young Hearts Run.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Music March!

Today for Soundtrack Week, I’ll be sharing a song from the 1996 rendition of the movie Romeo and Juliet. The song that makes me smile and makes me want to go to my own masquerade ball is “Young Hearts Don’t Run”.

A modern twist to a classic love story is up my alley. The soundtrack is musically intriguing, both the instrumental score and the songs with lyrics. This song in particular is from the masquerade scene in the movie. It is a disco genre and the song was originally performed by Candi Staton in 1976.

Years later, Kim Mazelle covered this song for the triple platinum selling soundtrack of the movie.

This upbeat tune will make you want to get and dance. I hope you like it and please look forward to my new post tomorrow!

See you soon!

Foodie February! My Favourite Breakfast Meals.

Hello everyone,

Welcome back to Foodie February! Today is the last post for this monthly segment and I decided to share with you some of my favorite breakfast meals.

Let’s get started!

1. Avocado Pudding

This is one of my favorite breakfast creations and to make this it is very easy. All you need is one large avocado, two tablespoons of cocoa powder, half of a banana, honey and little bit of milk. All of these ingredients need to be put in a blender and pour in milk is essential because it helps blend all of the ingredients faster. When everything is blended, it will have a pudding consistency. It is a healthier and better alternative to actual chocolate pudding! You put some toppings such as berries, coconut flakes and etc.

2. Waffles and Jam

This is fairly simple but on a day when I want to feel fancier, I like to have gluten free waffles with jam. This is so delicious and sweet!

3. Cereal.

Cereal is quick and easy for those days when you are in a rush. I have a few kinds of cereal I love and I tend to pick an organic cereal. This one here is a vegan cocoa cereal from Costco and it’s divine.

4. Bulgarian style pancakes

These are the best pancakes anyone could ever taste. These are Bulgarian style pancakes, they are very thin and they are stuffed with feta cheese or jam. This breakfast is more gourmet for days when I want to feel fancy or have a special day.

5. Yogurt granola bowls

This is my all-time favorite breakfast choice! I use organic probiotic yogurt with bananas, strawberries, and blueberries. I like to use raspberries or blackberries, I put one table spoon of chia seed powder to make it extra healthy.

6. Scrambled Eggs and Avocado

This is my choice for a savory breakfast, I love scrambled eggs with avocado and sometimes I’ll add gluten-free toast or crackers. I also add some fruit to add a little bit of sweetness to my meal.

7. Smoothies

When I’m not too hungry but I still need to nourish my body, I make smoothies. I have types of smoothies that I like to make. The first one is with almond milk, one banana, strawberries, blueberries and chia seed powder. The second smoothies I like to make it with spinach, one banana, and chia seed powder. It so healthy for you and a great way to detox your body if you ate junk food from the day before.

Thank you so much for reading and keeping up with this segment! I’ll have more food-related posts for you soon.

Now I would like to announce the next monthly segment…Music March!!! That’s right I’ll be posting music-related posts only and each week will have a theme. I will announce the themes by Friday, so please stay tuned.

See you soon!
