Track of the Week!

Track of the Week!

I really should’ve done this ages ago but I’m doing it now because he’s on my mind…

A dear friend of mine was killed in a car accident a few months ago. He was only 27. It was tragic. These events are always tragic. I don’t want to dwell on his death since I believe I’ve processed the worst of it and the thoughts I have of him are only happy now.

Anyway, this is a track that he made (he was a budding trance music producer). I only found this song after his passing and it’s absolutely beautiful. It totally encompasses his spirit. I see his smiling face clearly when I listen to it and it makes me smile.

Thanks for always, and I mean always, making me smile Aidy-boy.

Track of the Week!

Gonna make this quick because we have to go shopping and stuff.

This one is in honour of my girls. My friend and I are reminiscing about our clubbing days and this one was one of our faves and yes, there was a dance 🙂

The intro is awfully long so skip forward to 2:00

Enjoy it!!

Track of the Week!

Sooo, getting back on track with this blog thing. I believe Fridays are when I show you a piece of musical ear sex that makes me happy :).

So obviously on the heels of their new album release this week’s track is by Daft Punk. If you don’t know who daft punk is… I don’t know, man… Google them aaand.. you’re welcome :).

I loooove the new album, so much so that I couldn’t choose a track from it to pimp. So I’ve decided to go with my all time favourite Daft Punk song.

This one takes reminds me of home. The lyrics are somewhat sad but the lyrics aren’t why I love this. This song represents, for me, friendship, togetherness, happiness and love. I feel like even though the lyrics are sad the ultimate theme is love.

Love is so awesome. So here you go.
Something About Us by Daft Punk…
As always… play on loud…

Track of the Week!

so i heard this one on monday and i have listening to it all week and i’m still in love with it. i only found out about stimming on monday as well. the name looked familiar and i looked in my spotify playlist and realized i was already in love with two of his other tracks.

if you love sexy deep house or deep lounge (or whatever) you will love martin stimming. check him out on soundcloud. he’s so good.

look i’m not house music aficionado but i know what makes my heart dance and this does just that.

Window Shopping by Stimming

enjoy!!! and always play on loud!

i love fridays!!!

when driving home during the week i usually turn the radio off so i can be alone with my thoughts… okay, that’s a lie. it’s just that the music of today makes me want to rip my ears off.

but not on fridays!! friday is when i plug in my phone and turn the volume up and fall in love with house music all over again. it really is the best way to drive home… of course, the pit stop to buy beer helps a lot as well but that’s neither here nor there.

and with that i welcome you to my first weekly segment. i dont have a name for it yet cos not much that pertains to music goes nicely with the word friday… i am open to suggestions. each week i’ll show you a song that i fell in love with that week and i’ll try to say a few words about the week and the song if i’m not too tipsy :)…

so today, please enjoy
Take Me To My Love by Ralf GUM feat. Monique Bingham

this music video was shot in Johannesburg and it makes me feel like i’m back home.

ralf gum is a german house music dj and producer and has currently moved to south africa which his website quotes as “…the world’s current hot-bed for Soulful House Music…” (copying and pasting and re-reading that made me really happy)

monique bingham brings a soulfulness to this track that makes me feel warm inside.

i love it… i just love it…

Dreams Do Come True

yesterday was a 3 chocolate kinda day. i shamefully ate a twix, caramello bar and a three muskateers bar… in the space of an hour. pms has been getting worse since I took myself off birth control. yes, I have been known to be a tad dramatic, but dagnabbit I wanted chocolate okay.

when i got home i climbed into bed next my husband who was concentrating on something on the computer. i began whining about how tough my day was and how much the world hates me. i can’t keep my fish alive. i was so tired. i still had to cook dinner and the kitchen was (and still is) gross. i was cramping and bloated and i hated myself for skipping the gym this morning. wah wah wah.

my angel said he’d hook dinner up (heat up left overs) and suggested i go lay on the couch and catch up on all the chelsea lately i missed last week. what a saint. i felt bad for a split second when i remembered he’s been battling with a severely herniated disc in his lower back and hasn’t been able to walk properly for over a month. the couch was really comfy though and the blankets, so toasty.

tit bit number 2… i love chelsea handler. i wish we were friends. in my head i believe we are friends. she always seems to brighten my day and last night was no different. in the midst of their hilarious banter on the round table, chelsea read a headline that, if it comes into being, will be the single greatest thing to happen to my tummy since cheese.


now i know it isn’t here yet but in times like these i simply have to quote joey tribiani … “if you want something bad enough and your heart is pure, wondrous things can happen!”
