That Song That You Can't Get Out of Your Head: "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye feat. Kimbra

There's always that one particular song that randomly pops up in your head. Sometimes these songs don't appeal to you when you first hear then, but gradually you find yourself humming it, and eventually full on belting out the lyrics to no one in particular.

I'd like to share my song of the month thus far and it's "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye feat. Kimbra. The originality of the video is what got me once I heard it a little over two weeks ago and the catchy relatable lyrics stick with you well after the song is over, so without much more of my babbling, check out the video.

Rest In Peace Whitney Houston

It seems like this year is starting off with the loss of the music industry's greatest and most talented singers that there have ever been. Today, we lost the wonderful and multi-talented Whitney Houston. CNN reports that
The entertainer, whose incredible talent was discovered at an early age, was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m. (6:55 p.m. ET) at the Beverly Hilton hotel despite resuscitation efforts, a police spokesman said. Beverly Hills Police Lt. Mark Rosen said there were "no obvious signs of criminal intent" and that the cause of her death is being investigated. 
It saddens me to say that the next generation will be missing out on another great. First Etta James and now Whitney Houston. The music world has been dealt another blow equivalent to the loss of Michael Jackson. I send the family my condolences.

I leave you on this note with a video from one of Whitney's last singles and one of my favorite songs by her, ever.

Legendary Singer, Etta James, Passes Away at Age 73

It's a sad day for the music world, as we suffer a loss of one of the greatest voices of all time. Today Etta James was pronounced dead after complications with leukemia. CNN confirms this by saying that: 
"She died from complications from leukemia with her husband, Artis Mills, and her sons by her side, De Leon (her manager) said.She was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, and also suffered from dementia and hepatitis C. James died at a hospital in Riverside, California. She would have turned 74 Wednesday." (source: CNN)
As a fan of her music and her work ethic, I was quite surprised to hear about her death this morning. She always came off, throughout her career and life, as such a spit fire, that did things her way and didn't give a rat's butt about what other people thought about it. She was a determined and admired woman in the music industry and she will be forever missed. 

Rest in peace darling, your family is in my prayers.

Happy New Year!

Guess who's back? I know, I know I've been gone for quite sometime, but vlogging is my new love (I tried to make up for not blogging, by posting a a video or two on here) and not to mention I was finishing up my first semester of graduate school. It's so much more interesting than undergrad, but nevertheless I'm surviving. Part of my New Years plans (I hate resolutions) is to get back to blogging more consistently and overall just making a schedule so that everything fits in for me. School, vlogging, blogging, work, social life, etc.

Hopefully things go according plan. I hope you all enjoyed your Holiday Season and that you had an awesome and safe New Year.

New Music Monday: "Love On Top" Official Video

Once again, Beyoncé brings us another banger of a video. This woman's work ethic continues to astound me, even more so now that she'll be a mother in a few months. The simplistic layout of this video really showcases her performance ability and shows us once again why she is the queen or should I say king, as she likes to refer to herself . .. of R&B.

Like it, love it, let me know.
Later taters!

New Video: "Countdown" by Beyonce

Needless to say that any video coming from Beyonce is much anticipated, well today marked the release of the official video for Beyonce's "Countdown" video. To say that it's amazing is an understatement, the quirky and fun video obviously has had a lot of thought put into it and Beyonce delivers as usual, baby bump in tow and all.

Take a peak:
