Just the other day I was somewhat sad that the holidays were over. But then I realized that we still have New Years. So I decided that celebrating in style was the only way to go. Unfortunately my plans are consisting of having dinner with my parents and watching Dr. Who. But a girl can dream right… (also to give you a taste of the some the music I hope to blog about in 2012)
So here is my plan for the night:
Have a party with me, myself, and I listening to:
Pop culture Mashup- Madeon
Home- Girls love shoes
Anything from the Wombats:
and so much more!
Happy New Years! :p
So Seeing as Christmas is only in 48 hours I thought I would make a montage of my favorite things I love about the holidays I hope you guys like it and if I don’t post as soon as I want to I hope all of you have a great Christmas!
Tiny Christmas Tree- Guster
Best thing about the winter time is the lights:
Coca cola Artic Party:
Hilfiger Christmas Party(you know it’s a party):
3) Gift Guides;
Tonight’s post is a little random and somewhat overdue. As I was watching the various Christmas commercials/terrible jingles H&M’s Girl’s on Films came on. For the past few months I have been obsessing over that song! I finally told myself that I really needed the 20 second song on my ipod. But then the plot thickens… I learned that it was a remake (I should’ve known).
The original song was recorded by Duran Duran in the 80′s. I usually bash remakes trying to encourage people to support the original artists. But I’m having a really hard time convincing my self which version of Girls on film is better. I like Duran Duran’s version because it they made their own sound. On the other hand, the newer version is just as catchy. It has a sleek sound that could make anyone feel like a supermodel. So I think I’ll leave this one up to you guys. Here are both versions. Hopefully you guys can comment on which you prefer:
Girls on film-Duran Duran
Girls on film- H&M version
Right now I’m going through this I-love-British-bands-and-solo-guitar-players kind of mood. To add my calming/lazy attitude I was listening to another great guitar player. Her name is Annie Williams. I would definitely put her under some kind of acoustic pop. Though little is known of her, this singer/songwriter has been traveling between traveling and recording in Nashville. What is known from her is that she was born in Missouri.
If any of you guys are fans of Warpaint then you might like this singer. She has the smoky edge in her voice and a soothing guitar. In her song Roll on Hills is a perfect example of this. Another great song is Used to. I hope you guys are enjoying your holidays! Here’s some more music to make to even better!

Hold my hand- Annie Williams
After reading Nylon’s Beatles/60 inspired issue I decided to look up some of the musicians that had been interviewed. Among them was a British singer/songwriter Misty Miller happened to be among them. Living in south west London, she has been writing songs since she was 8. Even more unique is she has learned the ukele. At the age of 17 she released her fist album in 2011 featuring songs she wrote when she was 15!
Last night I posted her song Wild Thing. As stupid as it sounds, I was quite struck by that song. I was just amazed about the sound of the ukele and the truthful lyrics. I also happened to enjoy the traffic sounds in the back . Misty’s voice is truly memorizing and worth the listen. I think that she is just amazing and hope you guys enjoy her music to.
