Another Music Moves Me Monday. Monday aren't generally my favorite day of the week. Ok, who am I kidding? I'm not a fan of Mondays at all. But thanks to Stacy Uncorked and Xmas Dolly and their friends, I get to put my music stuff out there for someone’s listening pleasure besides my own. And that makes ME very happy! A happy me is a good me. Trust me!
This week’s theme is “freebie” which works for me because it leads into part of my post for tomorrow where I will be writing about my favorite chick right before I run out to Target. It will make more sense tomorrow, I promise.
I’m a huge Lady Gaga fan. Sure, I think she’s wacky. I don’t “get” some of her outfits but I’m just going with what must be her artistic expression. Being a “live and let live” kind of person, I’m very cool with wacky people.
So this is my favorite Gaga song. Until today, I hadn’t seen the video. It’s kinda HOT especially the beginning. When you listen to the song, just by itself (meaning no video as a distraction; close your eyes), you can hear the pureness of her voice. It’s not a fussy, techno jazzed up version like most of her other stuff.
I am also a Katy Perry fan, sort of. Again, I appreciate her creativity, mostly, but not her gimmicky productions. This song is sweet and sad and my favorite of hers.
This may make me unpopular with some but I'm really no longer much a Madonna fan. Too much is too much with her. I’m not sure if it was the overexposure of her life for way too long but I have always loved this song. For some reason, years ago (13 years, maybe), I used to run to this song. I played it at the very end of a running workout and it motivated me. Not sure what that says or why a mellow song would inspire me to hit the pavement extra hard for 5 more minutes but it did! Weird, I know!
Happy Music Monday!
