Music Monday: Snow on the Beach by Taylor Swift Official Lyric Video It's actually Sunday as I write this first Music Monday in a long time. Outside the snow falls gently, remaining white on my car but turning the pavement wet. It's not the right conditions to remain on the ground, but winter is coming and I have a puffer coat from Torrid … Continue reading Music Monday: Snow on the Beach by Taylor Swift

Music Monday: Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)

Tik Tok is a time suck. However, it's a fun time suck, but a time suck nonetheless. From time to time, the micro-vlogging platform comes with some gems like the various challenges popping up all over the place. In this case, Taylor Swift's classic song Wildest Dreams off her 1989 album. On Tik Tok, there's … Continue reading Music Monday: Wildest Dreams (Taylor’s Version)

Music Monday: ABBA

Note: From now on I am linking to videos instead of embedding them. I am not taking any chances with copyright. ABBA has a Tik Tok. The short-video, social media platform comes on and off my phone. The cat videos lure me in and one night while making myself put away the phone to … Continue reading Music Monday: ABBA

Music Monday: Sæglópur by Sigur Ros I got the heck out of dodge. By dodge, I mean 'Winnipeg' for a short gateaway. Technicially, I needed to stay home for 14 days to make the vaccine gain full immunity. In the end, I wanted to get out and have some time away from my condo, away from the city, and return … Continue reading Music Monday: Sæglópur by Sigur Ros

#MusicMonday: The Parting Glass as Sung By Hozier The opening verses of 'The Parting Glass' has played at the end of 'Waking Ned Devine' and during a rare quiet scene in 'The Walking Dead.' I have, perhaps, three versions of this tune of Spotify off the top of my head, maybe more. A dive into its origins uncovered scottish origins and more … Continue reading #MusicMonday: The Parting Glass as Sung By Hozier

#MusicMonday: Vivaldi-The Four Season, 1 Spring Recomposed by Max Richter Et Al

Better late than never but this Music Monday selection serves as a prelude to a post written for this week.

#MusicMonday: Epiphany by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross I decided to continue with a theme from one earlier post and highlight one of the many beautiful musical tracks from Pixar's latest movie 'Soul.' While portions of it had me going 'uh?' this movie took big risks to talk about a big theme: What is the meaning of our own lives? It's visually … Continue reading #MusicMonday: Epiphany by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross

Music Monday: Faith by Stevie Wonder, Featuring Ariana Grande

For those in need of a push as National Novel Writing Month counts down its final days, from the soundtrack to the upcoming film Sing, the one, the only, Stevie Wonder. (Oh, and Ariana Grande for those in the know. I am officially out that age bracket.)  

Music Monday: Homenaje Al Beny Castellano (Que Bueno Baila Usted) by Gente de Zona I already shared tracks from the Chef soundtrack but finally appreciated the hip-shaking artistry of Genta de Zona. (Translated as 'People from the neighbourhood' from Spanish. My Portuguese got as far as 'genta', a word shared by both romance languages.) This Cuban group collaborated with Enrique Iglesias and Marc Anthony for hits in the Americas. … Continue reading Music Monday: Homenaje Al Beny Castellano (Que Bueno Baila Usted) by Gente de Zona

Music Monday: Raging Fire By Philip Phillips

Yes, he won American Idol. I sat in a Second Cup, scribbling away on my journal, and this song comes on. It has this infectious beat, like I want to go out and conquer the world. Instead I conquered my bathroom.
