Perspectives of a Lady, Gentleman & Dane

To start with, I am not a huge fan of this song, I have tried listening to it many times hoping it will become as catchy as “Call Me Maybe” but I just cant get into it. So why post it? The video is hilarious, who would ever imagine Tom Hanks starring in a music video (and then have Justin Bieber cameo randomly). Have you watched it yet?

Once you watch the music video, I would strongly recommend the parody below, it is a great laugh too. I hope everyone is starting their week off in a silly mood, hopefully this week will fly by 🙂

How was your weekend? We have been scrambling around trying to get ready for all the fun this holiday season and its coming up on us so quickly. I love this time of the year, not for the cold, but because everyone seems a little happier, everything is a little more decorated and brightly lit and I get to spend more evenings in bed with lots of hot chocolate. I also like all the online sites filled with gift guides, thoughts on what the holidays mean to individuals and I secretly enjoy those top 40 lists of everything 2014 at the end of the year.

Even though I am not a huge fan of pop, I do love DJ Earworms end of the year mash ups because they give a little reminder of some of the music that came out over the last year and the memories of listening to those songs as well. Example: “All about that bass” is a song that Brian and I always laugh about because he hears it at least once every time at the gym and it is driving him crazy, while I love that song and still have not heard it played at the gym even once.

So even if you are not into Pop I hope you enjoy this little reminiscence and have a little dance party in your head to start Monday off properly, and if you want to reminisce a little more go back one more year and listen to his mashup of 2013!

This amazing band is from Toronto. I first heard this song in the movie Like Crazy and since then I have been a huge fan and love everything they make. When Brian and I first started dating we had a bit of a clash on our music style, but funny enough, we both have heard about the Stars before and both really enjoy listening to them even though neither of us usually like this style of music. This song and music video is from their album Five Ghosts (and also an awesome vinyl collection). However the band has also just recently come out with a new album No One is Lost, which is equally amazing.

For a small band they have produced a good amount of music videos and I find theirs to be refreshing since they don’t focus on the band them self and are rarely in the videos. Instead they use their music and display a story, which is more of what I imagine in my head when I am listening to music, and enjoy watching too.

What do you think? Isn’t this song so sad and sweet?
