On the Go: Shake It Out by the Cast of Glee

Leave a comment

Last week, I mentioned Florence + the Machine’s Shake It Off. Well, last season, the cast of Glee sang a version of the song that was really great. The scene is always very poignant and adds a whole other level to the meaning of the words as they sing them.

Of course, the original is even better but, I wanted to show you how awesome musicals are!

For the original song (Because you really should hear it twice):

On the Go: Stay by Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko

4 Comments

I will be honest, I know Rihanna isn’t the best singer out there, she’s not even a particularly good singer. But, her album, Unapologetic is amazing. Say what you will but the collection of music on that album is just hit after hit. This new single of her’s: Stay ft. Mikky Ekko speaks to my soul in a way a song hasn’t since Florence + the Machine‘s Shake It Off.

Here are some of my favorites (in no particular order):

  1. Love Song (feat. Future)
  2. Diamonds
  3. Pour it up

So, to start off the 2013 season of my reviews, Happy Valentine’s Day!

On the Go: Jon B and Jagged Edge

Went to see Jon B and Jagged Edge last Thursday with Dee. It was so crowded and hot at the park I was ready to leave before the music even started. Summer stage is ridiculous up in Harlem.

I will say this, though, Jagged Edge just got way cooler since I found out they wrote Nice & Slow. You know, the song by Usher everyone was having babies to? Yup, way cooler!

On the Go: The Roots at the Edison Ballroom

Leave a comment

The last couple of days I’ve been hanging out with my good friend, Dee. She managed to get me into the Roots concert at the Edison Ballroom. This is how the other half and the lucky few apparently live. Amazing buffet and open bar, while you get serenaded by an awesome band.

Obviously, Dee has been holding out on me and I am in the wrong industry.

The event is sponsored by Tremor Video. And boy do they know how to treat a girl right!

Must go enjoy my concert!

On the Go: Death to the Storm – Joe Henry

Leave a comment

I downloaded a bunch of free music when iTunes was giving promotional music on Facebook back in 2009. I listened to a few and then promptly forgot they existed. Well, now that I have a new iPod, my entire playlist is currently on shuffle. And thank the powers that be, because I happened to stumble upon this little beauty right here! It’s very jazzy and smooth. Looking forward to finding more gems on my iPod.

On the Go: Anberlin and Switchfoot Concert

Leave a comment

A couple of months ago, I went to see Anberlin and Switchfoot at the Best Buy Theater. Needless to say, it was amazing!

I’ve written about Anberlin before, but this post is mainly about Switchfoot. They are by no means a new band, in fact, they’ve been around for years. I knew about two of their songs, but I was blown away by their performance. They truly know how to entertain a crowd and they sound absolutely stunning!

Their current album, Vice Verses is a well crafted work of art! I’m not big on buying whole albums, mostly because I never like enough songs to justify paying for the entire thing – but I preview the album and I found myself clicking buy song after song until it made more sense to pay for the entire album than each individual song.

Some of my favorite songs are:

  1. The War Inside (track 3)
  2. Restless (track 4)
  3. Dark Horses (track 8 )
  4. Vice Verses (track 11)
  5. Where I Belong (track 12)
  6. Needle and Haystack Life (track 13)
  7. Always (track 20)
  8. Red Eyes (track 24)

You can now understand why I had to buy the album, I could keep adding songs to this list, but then I might as well just include the complete track list. Go to iTunes or amazon and have a preview of the songs. You won’t be disappointed. Promise!

On the Go: Rumour Has It/Someone Like You by the Glee Cast

Leave a comment

I recently blogged about Adele and that she is awesomeness personified. Well, my favorite musical television show did a mash-up of two of her songs and it was so dope!

Santana (Naya Rivera) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) sang this mash-up with the Troubletones, and they KILLED it. I mean after making it their (well, you know…), they murdered it, skinned it, and ate it for dinner. Yes, people – it was that good!

I’m going to stop talking now and just let you play the video.
