So today’s Music Monday is dedicated to Lana Del Rey. I’ve been listening to her music all day since the weather has been dreary and she has awkwardly depressing music so they go hand in hand.
The song for today is “Summertime Sadness.” It’s partially because it’s a good song and the other part is because the summer means I’m closer to having to go out into the real world which basically means the end of my youth. But on the bright side it means I won’t have any homework! The music video features Lana being dramatic, as usual, and jumping off a cliff but somehow surviving. I don’t really understand it but I love it anyway.
After a 7-year music break, Justin Timberlake is finally releasing his third studio album tomorrow and I’m pretty excited. I wasn’t always a fan of Justin but when “Sexyback” came out, I was hooked. His first single “Suit and Tie,” although it took time to grow on me, is great! It makes me feel classy when I listen to it and I like to sing and dance along to it in the car. I can’t dance as well as him but I’m getting there!
Justin has been all over SNL, Jimmy Fallon, and other shows to promote the album, which has gotten me really excited. He even performed a new song each day last week on Jimmy Fallon. And after listening to the full album on iTunes yesterday, I can’t wait to buy it! It’s a lot of R&B and Pop sounds, which I love. There are also rumors that he’s making a volume two to this album as well so I can’t wait!

In honor of seeing Oz The Great and Powerful on Saturday I decided to dedicate today’s Music Monday to Mariah Carey‘s song for the movie, “Almost Home.” It’s a very understated song, which I like about it, yet it still shows off her vocal ability. I also chose it because I’m home for Spring Break so I thought the title was slightly fitting.
As I stated in my previous blog post, I loved the movie! The music video features clips from the movie between clips of Mariah singing with a very powerful wind machine, I might add. The song isn’t in the movie but is the very last song played in the credits, which is disappointing since it’s a great song!

Yesterday, one of my very generous residents made pancakes for the unit! I never had chocolate chip pancakes before nor had I eaten pancakes in years so I was extremely excited to be able to eat some. Needless to say, I had two and they were delicious. And, unfortunately, I ate them extremely quickly because I had to rush to church and I got a stomach ache because of it. They were so good that I think I’ll visit IHOP sometime soon to celebrate my newfound love!
Making the pancakes!
This made me decide to make today’s music monday dedicated to Rihanna and her song “Birthday Cake.” No, my birthday isn’t any time soon but it had the work “cake” in the title so I thought it was fitting. This is one of my favorite songs and let’s just say that I sing this song at the top of my lungs when I’m alone in the car.

So I was really hoping the world would end on Friday and really hoped the Mayans were right but sadly they were incorrect. I only wanted the world to end just so I could brag that I went through the apocalypse in the afterlife but I guess I won’t get to do that just yet!
Inspired by the (not so) end of the world, this week’s Music Monday choice is “Till The World Ends” by Britney Spears. The video takes place in a sewer system during the apocalypse on Dec 21 and is basically an underground nightclub. Hey, if there’s nothing else left in the world, why not dance!? That’s basically the whole plot of the video so enjoy!
Even though the world didn’t end, at least I can say I survived the apocalypse!
