By now everyone with a radio knows about Jason Derulo. Not only do those DJs play his songs more often than Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance." (Read: Every. Other. Minute.), but homeboy really loves to sing his own name. Like, a lot.
All the artists this week make me happy. Even when the songs are sad, I'm happy. And I think that's a sign of a truly great artist; they can sing about the saddest things in love and still put a smile on my face. And sometimes you just need music to comfort you and make you feel good. Like during midterms after spending 6 straight hours at the library and you're only a third of the way through your reading.
I feel like I'm having a major flashback this week. Like Wayne and Garth are running by me in my bedroom waving their hands in the air screaming "Do do do do. Do do do do." And then everything gets all jumbled and I'm ten years younger and wearing something completely ridiculous.
This week we've got a hot band (that you can officially tell your friends you've "been listening to since blah, blah, BLAH"), a great service that's all about you, and another awesome site that will change your life.Get ready to brag to your friends, ladies, because you are in. the. know.
My sister is getting married and I've had weddings on the brain, so this week I'm dedicating this review to her and doin' the something old, something new, and something blue routine. It doesn't just apply to brides, you know. I didn't borrow any of my music this week (I'm not good at giving back), so I had to leave that one out.
You know, boys aren't the only ones who get to rock every week. In fact, this week no boys rocked at all; it was all about the ladies. I was excited to see three very special lady musicians coming out with new albums this week. They are all women I really like and respect and am genuinely excited to hear what they've got.
And this week I learn how easy it is to write about music I’m crazy obsessed with. I was so beyond-words excited about the new releases this week that I basically wanted to tell you about every song, transcribe all the lyrics, and somehow hum the tunes onto the computer screen so that you’d get the full effect. But I tried to restrain myself a little bit.
