Music Monday: All I Need

10 Jan

Happy Monday, Stylers! This song has been steadily climbing my play count ranks since Eliesa hooked me up with it a few weeks ago. It’s objectively fantastic.  The song “Let it Rock” was my absolute favorite for my entire freshman year, and this sample is awesome. If you want to get it, make sure you buy it on iTunes so you get the version that Kevin Rudolf actually sings on. Enjoy!

Music Monday: Soundtrack to My Life

27 Dec

This album has been on repeat for me the past week or two. Something about Joshua Radin’s songs makes me feel like they were written about my life. The New Year is rapidly approaching, so I’ve been giving some serious thought to what my resolutions should be {yes, I’m one of those who LOVES making New Years Resolutions}. “We Are Only Getting Better” makes me feel like my life is a movie, and this is the song playing in the background. The video is not great, so here are the lyrics. Enjoy!

Say, we’ll run away, when things get better, better than today
Blind leading blind, never knowing, what we find 

Where are we going, who are we now?
Let’s decide.

This time you’ve got to make up your mind,
This life you’re living.

This time you’ve got to make up your mind,
This life’s worth living.

Get up, we’ve got a way’s to go

We are only getting better
Where we were, that doesn’t matter

Lately, everything is hazy, but I know what’s true
Lately, everyone seems crazy, but I believe in you

Stay posted for our New Years Fashion Resolutions!

Music Monday: It’s not date rape if it’s Eggnog and Mistletoe…

20 Dec

This is my favorite non-hymn Christmas song. I love this. Especially the Zooey version – she’s my favorite. I replicated her hair (the dark with bangs) because I wanted to be her. But that’s neither here nor there. This is a great song. If anyone would like to sing a duet of this with me that’s my only Christmas wish.

Merry Christmas BYUStylers!!!! Have a great break!

The Rain(y) Music Monday

6 Dec

In honor of our overcast day (secretly my favorite weather), I picked one of my all time favorite songs. When I feel like my “Mr. Right Now” playlist is dull or lacking something, I almost always turn to this song. It’s upbeat, fun and colorful.

And all I ever want is to be that “kind of girl that makes you feel better; it don’t matter how you used to feel.”

Music Monday: Just What the Doctor Ordered

29 Nov

This song was the soundtrack of my November/December/January last year. So it’s a bit old. But so good. I really like the way he combines clever lyrics, dance and hip hop beats, and a nice dash of techno. I can’t get enough of him. {Also try Embers, Writer’s Block, Triple Tone Eyes and Mourning Morning.}

This is “Doctor Doctor” by Just Jack.

Oh My Stars

15 Nov

Two weeks ago today my boyfriend called me and said we were going to see Andrew Belle play at Velour. I had no idea who he was, but I’m always game for some new sound. Turns out, I love him. He’s been my constant soundtrack ever since. It’s the perfect fall music. It complements the colorful leaves, chill winds, and misty mornings. His music is amazing. Whether you want the crushing heartbreak of “Make It Without You” or the longing love of “The Ladder,” the chill sound of Andrew Belle is for you. (Follow @andrewbelle on Twitter. Worth it.)

My favorite? Oh My Stars. My heart melts every time.

The Beautiful Girls

9 Nov

This band is a recent find for me. They are a little-known band from Australia, and their particular brand of rock is just my style.

I can’t stop listening to “I Thought About You” but I couldn’t find a cool video for it. This is my second favorite, “In Love.” Enjoy. 🙂

There’s No Sound Like Home

1 Nov

In honor of the Neon Trees concert tomorrow in Salt Lake (yes, my baby sister got me tickets and I am GOING!), this Music Monday is a favorite Neon Trees song. I know, I know. You’ve all heard Animal. If you haven’t…. please click here and get out from under that rock that is your home.

Here’s 1983. This music video is awesome, and just premiered on Oct. 19! Enjoy!

Music Monday – Perky and Fresh

25 Oct

Today’s Music Monday song is “Make It, Take It” by Amanda Blank. This song came out last year, and I can’t even remember where I found it, but it’s awesome. It’s consistently on my most played. Enjoy!

Music Monday – Loud and Fast

18 Oct

This is my first weekly Music Monday post! I’ve been geeking out about this. I basically begged Katie for the privilege of Music Monday posts. I love music and I love when people share music. Music Monday is an opportunity for me to tell you guys what I’ve been listening to and for you guys to tell me what YOU are listening to.

Lately, I can’t stop listening to the Fratellis. They are Scottish and AWESOME. They are great for working out, walking around on campus, and motivating yourself to do homework. “Baby Fratelli” and “Chelsea Dagger” have been featured on NBC’s fall show promos, and those are great. But…

Today’s song is “Mistress Mabel.”

Enjoy!
