Modern Mixtape Challenge! nicolejb

In response to @InPlainSight’s challenge, I have picked my top 5 songs on my Modern Mixtape. And man was it hard! I have a variety of music interests and song that I love so it was hard to only pick that many. And to pick songs for a potential cutie? Even harder.
I picked a variety of songs that both represent my musical interests as well as the feels you feel when you like like someone.

1. I Can Do Better Than That

Ok, so hear my out with this song. I love musicals. Like LOVE musicals. Because they tell a story. In this song the story it's her singing about her past and how she can do better (hence the weird title). The second part is about how the dude IS better for her. Anyway, I just really love this musical and this song. Here’s a clip from the movie adaptation.
"I want you and you and nothing but you. Miles and piles of you.”

2. Smooth Sailin'

This one is a dancing one. Leon Bridges is one of my new favorite artists.
"Let me be your cargo." He can be my cargo anytime ;)

3. Cold Coffee

Ed Sheehan is the bomb. This song is the bomb. I love the image of drinking coffee together in the morning and talking. It’s so simple and perfect.

4. Love You Long Time

Some of you might not know this, but I was in an acappella group in college. So I love this sort’ve music. This song is particularly fun.

5. Make you Feel My Love

I’d end it with a kicker. This song never ceases to make me cry. I sang it for a good friend of mine’s wedding, and it was beautiful. Here’s the Queen singing it live.
Alrighty. It’s your turn now peeps. What's on your modern mixtape?

The Ultimate Awesomesauce Playlist
Apparently, today is International Day of Awesomeness. Which warrants a Awesome Day Playlist to celebrate of course! These are a variety of songs that make me feel awesome and badass. I split each by genre so you can pick the ultimate for whatever type of music you like. I hope it makes your day just as awesome as you are ;) Young Fathers - Typhoon Genre: Indie Kinda a sad beginning to this song, but the beat picks up. I promise you will be singing, "Young people get o-o-old every day" and whistling in the background. Because everyone knows that a song with whistling in the background is bound to be awesome. King of the World - First Aid Kit Genre: Folk My friend introduced me to First Aid Kit a few years ago. She knew how much I loved folk music, but also female harmonies (singer problems). So obviously I love them. This is one of my favorites from their album in 2012, it's got awesomeness written all in it. Beat It - Fall Out Boy Genre: Rock Let's face it Michael Jackson was awesome, and his music is STILL awesome. Well, this song is his but even more AWESOME (that's a lot of awesome... let me tell you!) Because it's a rock n' roll version. Featuring everyones favorite badass band, Fall Out Boy. Keep Livin - Jean Grae Genre: Hip-Hop There are so many fabulous women rap/hip-hop artists out there. And Jean Grae is one awesome example. This song is an oldie, but a goodie. So if you like hip-hop, it's bound to make you feel awesome. Cheerleader - Pentatonix Genre: Pop/Vocal You might probably know the original song from listening to the radio, but this version is probably my favorite. It's good knowing you have someone your side right? Well take on today feeling awesome knowing you have cheerleaders on your side :) What song would you add to this playlist?
15 Extremely Sad Quotes About Love And Pain
Everyone faces a bad time at some point in their life. We all hold on and let go sometimes. The sad part of our life can give us the best lesson forever. Here are 15 extremely sad quotes about love and pain. Sometimes even tears can’t express that much pain, as much a smile is hiding. “Our greatest joy and our greatest pain come in our relationships with others.” –Stephen R. Covey It is sad not to love, but it is much sadder not to be able to love. –Miguel de Unamuno “Some people are going to leave, but that’s not the end of your story. That’s the end of their part in your story.” ―Faraaz Kazi “It’s amazing how someone can break your heart and you can still love them with all the little pieces.” –Ella Harper There is one pain, I often feel, which you will never know. It’s caused by the absence of you. –Ashleigh Brilliant Her every memory strikes like cold air and freeze me at that moment The truth is that they come to you when you are not ready, and leaves when you need them most. I am prisoned between ” how it is” and “how it is supposed to be” and it is painful. Trust is like an eraser, it gets smaller and smaller after every mistake. - Anonymous If two people are meant to be together, they will eventually find their way back into each other's arms... no matter what. - Anonymous You will never find the right person if you never let go of the wrong one. - Elizabeth Hollomon When someone lies to you, it's because they don't respect you enough, to be honest, and they think you are too stupid to know the difference. - Anonymous . Be strong now because things will get better. It might be stormy now, but it can't rain forever. - Anonymous Don't tell me I've changed, when in reality, I just stopped dealing with you. - Carson Kolhoff You fall in love with the most unexpected person at the most unexpected time. - Anonymous Forget all the reasons why it won't work, and believe the one reason why it will. - Ziad K. Abdelnour You can't go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending. - C.S. Lewis You still make me smile, even if you're the reason why I'm sad. - Zakiya And Majid What brings us to tears, will lead us to grace. Our pain is never wasted. - Bob Goff What do you think about these sad quotes and which one do you relate the most?
Disney Princesses Singing In Their Native Languages
English is not the native tongue of Disney Princesses. Everyone has grown up with Disney Princesses because they are the most innocent form of childhood entertainment. With the fantastic movies comes even better songs which make them so appealing. Your infatuation with them carries on into adulthood and before you know it, you're sitting in your living room watching the movies singing along with your own children. Crazy right? Well, here's the thing, English is the default language, not the native one. All Disney Princesses have come from other countries other than Pocahontas who was a Native American in North America (present day USA). It brings up a really interesting change because when you watch the Disney movies in their native languages, it has an entirely new meaning because it's authentically and historically correct. Disney Americanizes our movies through using English and we forget that languages play a huge role in presenting emotions, interactions, conversations, and without a doubt, our singing. One of the biggest trends on the internet is hearing a Disney Princess sing her hit song with her own native finesse instead of a defaulted English one. Enjoy and really take notice on the differences in emphasis and fluidity of the lyrics. Because of changed language, the songs also have different lyrics to fit the melody which slightly alters the song even if it has a similar universal meaning. Disney is genius. What do you think?
5 Reasons You Should Listen to Pentatonix Right NOW
Pentatonix is an all-vocal a cappella group that is pretty much the best ever. Not only do their YouTube videos get millions of views, but they are actually getting clout in the music industry. As an all-vocal group, that’s a pretty tough feat. Here are some reasons why should be obsessed with them right NOW: 1. They are arguably the best all-voice band ever. Straight No Chaser is good, and I mean Home Free had some hits...but they aren’t Pentatonix. They are currently touring with Kelly Clarkson, sold out their own shows around the world, and presented an award at the Grammys. They even released a documentary about their world tour. They are pretty hot right now. 2. They are just a bunch of choir nerds. They are self-described total choir nerds and music nerds in band that met in high school in Arlington, Texas. The group came together and competed in the third season of NBC's “The Sing-Off” in 2011. Winning a record deal. From there they kept trying new and innovative music, and their popularity only increased. 3. They love their fans. The group is known for staying after their shows and meeting their fans. The invite fans on stage, and sometimes they even go to local bars to grab beers with their concert-goers. Story time! I once saw them in at the airport, but couldn’t get through the crowds to say “hi!” I tweeted at them and they immediately tweeted back, wishing me the best. How great are they?! 4. They are adorably weird. Especially Mitch & Scott who’s bromance has manifested itself into Superfruit (a pretty awesome YouTube channel) and Scomiche (their couple name that was then made into a Tumblr). They’ve been best friends for a while so it’s pretty fabulous to see them as their real selves. 5. They are reshaping the all-voice music industry. ...and making a cappella cool again. Not only doing covers, but even writing their own original music, and making weird and funky mashups. As an a cappella nerd, it makes me happy to see such a talented group lead the community of aca-nerds. Props to Pentatonix. @supershowolarmy can probably vouch for me on all of these.
