Music Monday: Arctic Monkeys

As all my friends know, I’m extremely picky over my music choices. I even only have 5 artists on my iPod! One of them being the Arctic Monkeys. I only discovered them last year despite them being formed in 2002. Needless to say, as soon as I heard them, I loved it!

Their latest album, called AM, is my favorite of their albums. It’s very hip hop influenced, which I like, and is also really dark, which I also enjoy since it makes me feel edgy. Yes, I’m easily influenced into liking things if they make me feel edgy…. Don’t judge me!

They recently covered “Hold On, We’re Going Home” by Drake and I really enjoyed it. I thought they pulled it off well considering the song is a different genre but also put their own spin on it.

Music Monday: Eminem

Last week Eminem‘s new album came out and, although I haven’t been able to listen to the whole thing, I have heard a couple songs from it and I really like them! His first single “Berzerk” is one of my favorite songs of 2013 just by how all over the place it is and reminds me of the Beastie Boys.

His new song “Monster” with Rihanna is also one of my new favorites. It’s nothing like their previous song “Love The Way You Lie” and hopefully it won’t get overplayed as much as LTWYL was as well. It awkwardly sounds like it could be a Flo Rida song but hey, at least it’s catchy! Hopefully the video for it is good!

Music Monday: NWTS

Of course I had to bring back my weekly music monday posts! Today’s Music Monday is dedicated to Drake. All my friends know that I’m a huge Drake fan and he’s one of the few artists on my iPod. Plus, he’s one of my favorite artists to dance to in my room by myself. Sure that’s an embarrassing confession but whatever!

The reason why I chose Drake was because his new album “Nothing Was The Same” comes out tomorrow. I listened to it online last week and I love it and can’t wait to buy it when it comes out at midnight! No, I’m not waiting at the store, I’m just buying it on iTunes. I made sure I had enough money in my bank account to buy it so I should be all clear when it comes out.

My favorite song from the album is “All Me” but there are other good songs on the album too. His first single “Started From The Bottom” is great as well. I highly recommend checking it out!

Spanish Rap

Although my Spanish group thought we were being creative in reciting our vocabulary words to the tune of a rap by Nicki Minaj, turns out the other two groups did the same thing! They didn’t use Nicki Minaj but they still rapped. It was fun though! My group was CLEARLY the best. Not only did we have great costumes, our theme was aliens vs. nerds, but we also memorized it. I think our professor was impressed.

In my British Literature class, we have to write a sonnet and I’m not used to writing poetry so it will definitely be a challenge.Who knows, maybe I’ll be a natural! This is the first class I’ve actually liked British Literature in. We cover more poetry than the typical Shakespeare as in high school english which is a definite plus.

That’s all for today! Feel free to leave a comment and thanks for visiting! You can see my Twitter here.
