Track of the week

Writing that other post reminded me about what I used to blog about and this was one of my favourite type of posts. I’m going to try to bring it back. It breaks the monotony in life somewhat.

So, as you may or may not know. I love to dance and I love dance music so most of my weekly tracks are designed to get me off my chair or, if I’m working, bop along like a weirdo.

This is a newy that should be on mainstream radio. I first heard it when hubby and I were on our way up to our RE appointment to find out how our embryos were doing. I love it because aside for having a put-me-in-a-good-mood beat, the lyrics rang true since ivf is expensive and they’re singing about going to the club even though the rent was late. And at the end Pitbull gave a lovely pick-me-up message at the end of it. Can’t believe I’m about to quote Pitbull haha.

Enjoy and Happy Friday!!

This for anybody going through tough times
Believe me, been there, done that
But everyday above ground is a great day, remember that
– Pitbull

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…
