Music Monday: Grammy Edition

Last night I watched the Grammys, which I hardly ever do. A lot of the artists I listen to are never on the Grammys, so I never really seen any point, but last night I thought why not. I mostly watched the Grammys because I didn’t feel like crying through the Bachelor Sean and Catherine’s wedding. Yes, I’m that person.

There were 3 amazing performances in my opinion. I think two of them are pretty obvious.

#1. Beyonce ft Jay Z – Drunk in Love
My Beyonce obsession just recently started. I don’t know why but I never really felt the whole Beyonce craze thing, but her new album I just can’t. It is so good, and then her performance on the Grammys just killed it. I don’t know why they put her as the first performer because then after that I almost felt like the show was over.

#2. Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons
THIS WAS SO AMAZING. SERIOUSLY AMAZING. I saw both Kendrick and Imagine Dragons this past summer and they were so good individually that when I heard they were collaborating I was so happy. If you didn’t know I have a thing for rap so Kendrick was a given, and then after seeing Imagine Dragons in concert they totally changed my opinion on them. If you have the chance of seeing these two live you have to do it!

#3. Daft Punk ft Pharrell and Stevie Wonder
It doesn’t get much better than this. Even if you aren’t fans of Daft Punk who doesn’t love Stevie Wonder? There’s not much to say for this one besides you’re going to want to get up and dance to this.

There were obviously other performances that were awesome too. John Legend’s performance broke my heart because of how sweet it was. I really liked Kacey Musgrave however where they placed her performance was unfortunate!

What did you think about last night’s performances?

Fiesta Friday!

It’s Friday and I couldn’t be happier, and to get you pumped for the weekend, which for Butler students is the last weekend for shenanigans before we all have mental breakdowns for finals, I am going to provide you my latest top 5 songs that I can’t stop listening to! As usual some are old, some are new!

#1. Need Your Heart – Adventure Club ft Kia
If you are into dubstep this song is probably for you. Kia in the background and the beat are such an awesome combo. I love listening to this song when I’m running!

#2. Chugjug – Family of the Year
This song has been featured in Advil commercials, but I love the way this song is super upbeat and very laid back. It just makes me want to move my feet side to side. It’s a really good song to just have your windows down and driving down a hilly road on a fall day.

#3. The Recipe – Kendrick Lamar ft Dr. Dre
Although the beat is simple in this song it’s perfect, because the singer in the background sounds so eerie that it works out perfect. I couldn’t find an edited version to put on here, but if you would like to listen to this just simply You Tube it!

#4. Disparate Youth – Santigold
Santigold always has really awesome and cool beats going on in her songs. Plus the way she sounds is not like many other artists out there. The only other artist comparison out there to her would M.I.A who is also amazing!

#5. Raphael – CocoRosie
The song starts out sounding like it’s on a vinyl, which is really cool. I like this song because the singers voice is really interesting and has this raspyness to it as well as this old sound to it. It’s a little weird, but I like it.

There’s my latest five. No worries there will be a next five soon enough when I found more songs that I can’t help but listen to!
