Bruno Just Wants to Party.

As much as I dig melancholy and deep lyrics, there are times I just want to listen to fun music – music that keeps my mind preoccupied from the other voices in my head I hear on the daily. Music that stays in my ears like infected earworms that leave me smiling. Congratulations Bruno Mars, you have been selected to uplift my spirits. And you do so magnificently.

The new album, 24K Magic, is a dance extravaganza of entertainment. It’s pretty clear that he was influenced by 80s and 90s music because the whole album is just a throwback to that era. I’m not complaining about it at all. I believe Bruno wants the world to just relax, have fun, dance, and not think about their problems. That’s kind of what he’s been all about anyway, but this third album really drives the idea home. From the title track, to “Chunky” to “Callin’ All My Lovelies” to my particular favorite, “Finesse” he keeps the party moving. My only complaint is that there are only 9 songs. He left me wanting more. My guess? Since the album is a tribute to old school 80s synths, and 90s drumbeats, maybe he also wanted to stay true to how albums were made back in the day 8 or 9 songs, and that was it. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s a short album, but it still packs a punch nonetheless.

What I love about Bruno is that he has tremendously big bravado in such a small stature. And he’s so darn likable. That smile, the way he carries himself, how he pines for the ladies it goes a long way to garner attention. One thing is for sure, he’s like the Tazmanian Devil. Once he leaves, you always know he was around because his voice and spirit stay with you for the rest of the day. He makes it his mission to make sure everyone has a good time because life is just too short not to and I appreciate that in a man. Even his love songs are pretty entertaining and I’m not a fan of love songs. He is a complete charmer and I’m thankful that in a world of music crap we have Bruno to celebrate life. And this is coming from a resident Eeyore. So if you want to have a good time, throw a party, twerk yourself into oblivion, put on 24 K Magic. You won’t be disappointed.

Singles Is As Singles Do..

I thought I’d share a few singles with you. I’m a little late on the game with some of them, but man, they’re pretty kick ass for my ears.


Little Mix – Wings

I had never heard of Little Mix until two months ago but this song is just pop greatness. The four little ladies can sing. And their harmonies are great. Despite one that looks like Sooki, the voice trumps it lol. And I like the meaning behind the song, to keep on working hard and don’t let the naysayers put you down. And they love their mamas. Can’t hate on a band that loves their mamas! Way to go ladies. I hope they go far. I even like the band name. There is a cosmic slop of backgrounds involved in them all. So yeah, gooey pop wonderfulness.


Disclosure – Latch Feat. Sam Smith

My friend Marc got me into this band with another one of their singles. They have an album named Settle that will be dropped soon. But since I have connections, I have it and man is it faaaaaabulousss!! The dance, beat and melody in this song are just excellent. It is my go to song when I want to shake it. Great vocals, works well with the beat. Check them out please. So so amazing. And addictive. Sam Smith sounds a LOT like Sam Sparro but I am not disappointed at all. This vid is..wowsers.



I love what I’m hearing from this band. It’s a mix of Gold Fields, Garbage, and Paramore. I think if all three of them had a kid CHVRCHES would be the offspring. It’s synth heavy, drum heavy, and works perfectly with the vocals. I found out  Iain Cooke, who is part of the Unwinding Hours, a band I enjoy, is part of this band. Can’t go wrong. Check them out.


Just felt like sharing. Enjoy and pass it on.

Throwback Thursday: Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam.

Hello my dears.

So once again, it’s Thursday. New Thursday, new throwback. Today it’s Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam’s “I Wonder If I Take You Home.”

I LOOOOOOOVED this song. I loved this band. Don’t let the pink fool you. Lisa, you were brave for wearing this much pink but you know what, you rock it. I still don’t know what a Cult Jam is.. Can you spread it on bread? Can you spread it on bagels? Whatever the case, it sounded great. And the drums..oh the drums to this song are SO SO LOUD. She might look like a pink marshmellow puff, but it’s all good. It’s all good Lisa. We miss you. You want you to come back. They don’t make voices like hers anymore. And I also chose it because how many of us ladies tried to get our makeup right to match hers? C’mon. I know you know I’m right.

Love the hangover hair too. I also tried to copy that. But thank the baby buddha those pics will NEVER be seen. Don’t even try it people.

And seriously…what the hell is a Full Force?

So so so good. So watch and enjoy.

See you next Thursday.
