Easy Fridays 006: Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart

Groove Is in the Heart

Ooh . . . la-la . . . la-la . . .

It’s Valentine’s Day today and somehow, this song has been playing inside my head long before I started making this post.

Yes, despite me being a rocker at heart, there’s a piece of me that liked groovin’ with a bit of pop. Aannnndddd . . . Dee-Lite‘s been on my playlist for years — my go-to jam when I just want to let loose.

So, shake that tush and do your funky moves (at least in the privacy of your home as I do) with Dee-Lite’s Groove Is In The Heart.

‘Til next Friday, y’all!

Easy Fridays 005: Allison Road by Gin Blossoms

So when I was thinking of what song to usher in the weekend this time around, Allison Road was one of the firsts that came to mind.

Allison Road is the first song that made me fall in love with Gin Blossoms.  It’s also one of the first songs I learned how to play on my guitar way back when cellphones are bigger than wireless home phones and the internet is not that big of a deal yet.

It calms me down and it makes me a bit lethargic. After several hectic weekends, I think it’s time to hang up the dancing shoes and just stay at home — in bed — and relax.

‘Til next week!

It’s Friday once again and it’s time for some groove to unwind and put on those funky moves on the dance floor (or your living room) because we need to dance inside our homes from time to time. It’s fun and there’s no cover charge.

***I’m shaking the stress off while channeling my inner Barbarella.***

As the title of this post suggest, it’s Jay Kay and one of my favorite jam music — Cosmic Girl.

Here you go . . .

Till next week!

Easy Fridays 003: The Temper Trap’s Sweet Disposition

It’s Friday once again . . . and I’ve got something that even my most pop-ish friend loved. It’s none other than The Temper Trap’s Sweet Disposition.

After being introduced to this Aussie band in the movie 500 Days of Summer, I’ve immediately glued my eardrums to them. The Temper Trap has released a lot of amazing songs including Love Lost and Fader, but the one that made me fall in love is this song.

So, here it goes . . .

Till next week, folks!

Easy Fridays 002: The Cure’s Friday I’m In Love

Whew! Finally, it’s the last day of the workweek and I’m gearing towards a sort of busy weekend. Like what they said: There’s no rest for the wicked . . . and I AM the wickedest of them all. 

Anyway, vacillating between two songs to start-off the weekend was a dilemma that was solved as quickly as it presented itself.

There’s no better song to start the weekend than The Cure’s Friday I’m In Love — the ultimate soundtrack to the weekend.

So, without further ado, I bring you Robert Smith and his iconic guy liner-ed eyes and the rest of The Cure in one of my favorite The Cure songs.

Till next week!
