Recently, at the most random of times, 90s songs have been getting stuck in my head. Just snippets of the song mind you, and then I’m left scrambling, trying to remember other parts of the song, the name of the song, who sings it etc. etc.
Today, it’s Westlife. Remember them? I think they were a one hit wonder, but what a wonder they were. And can we talk about that key change?!
Throwback Thursday friends - press play & reminisce with me.
Alicia Keys - Not Even The King
I’m sitting in front of my computer screen, with this on repeat, hyperventilating ever.so.slightly, holding on to her every word.
This video starts and finishes about as fast as my most recent trip to New York.
Also - the music is smashin’ is it not?
One Direction Transformed of the Day: All that One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” needed was a little love. Naturally, The Piano Guys don’t disappoint.
This is too good not to share.
Watch this, then WATCH OUT: this will go viral before you know it.
DC’s newest home venue iClhalk swung open its doors for the first time a month ago and welcomed local Maryland band kindlewood to the stage.
It was a surreal, intimate evening as beautiful souls congregated under the twinkling lights, having travelled as far north as Connecticut, as far west as Fairfax VA and everywhere in between.
kindlewood is a strikingly simplistic trio, made up of high school sweethearts Galen & Kelci Smith and dear friend, Jamison Lyman. They emerged onto the musical terrain in November 2010 with their debut EP, I Don’t Believe in Ghosts, and have only continued to grow with the release of their full-length album, Desiderium, in May of 2011.
Each song that Saturday night was led by Kelci’s soft yet rich voice and from the moment she opened her mouth to sing, you opened yours as well…in awe. The night began with Mon Ami, an invitation that regardless of whether we’d known each other for weeks, months, years or even just a few hours,
we are all friends.
Their third song of the night, Wilderness, swept you off your feet, and even in the hussle and bussle of the District, kindlewood’s crisp harmonies combined with a magnificent, yet subtle, accordion hum left you feeling, or rather truly believing, a peak outside the window would reveal a beautiful mountain range and the morning break they so eloquently sang of.
Reverie was definitely the crowd favourite with Kelci’s ukelele playing was elegantly effortless and the audience members were encouraged to clap and sing along; it was an enchanting musical experience that you never wanted to end.
Because what could be better than fancy floating picture frames, artists whose names you didn’t know then and still don’t recognize now & of course, baby Aaron Carter?
Thank you Throwback Thursday!
Not only are we friends, we also work together…kind of. He lives in New York, me in DC, but we both do the same thing as City Coordinators in our respective cities.
Anyway, long story short, he just started a new blog for all the happenings of IC in NYC, which you should check out & follow; it’s like a lifestyle blog, but with purpose & trust me - you won’t be disappointed.
Today’s track is off his latest mix and has been playing on repeat in my iTunes for sometime now.
And why not? it’s Friday! And Happiness belongs me! (and you too!)
this is that “out on your back porch on a beautiful night hanging with friends” track.
this track and concert deserve your undivided attention (the latter, especially if you live in SD)
