Lenny on Hunger Games

I am far too excited about this movie! In this clip, Ellen asks Lenny about The Hunger Games.

Cher Lloyd, You Rock!

After seeing this post over at The Music Oracle, I HAD to look this girl up. She’s freaking AMAZING. I loved the songs he posted of hers, but seeing her first audition for the X-Factor made me love HER. I watched a few more of her performances. Some, I didn’t love. Others, I REALLY liked and was impressed by. To me, she’s some sort of Katy Perry – Amy Winehouse – Lily Allen – Nicki Minaj  – Amy (from Karmin) concoction that I really like. That’s a lot of names/people, I know, but it. is. no. lie. Check out her audition:

Awesome, right?!

I have more music to share with you tomorrow. Right now, I have to get a bit more work done, and drink more water. Must. Hydrate. Before. Run. Did I mention that I’ve done two runs so far? Not bad at all. I actually feel great after I run. I had a little moment last night that I won’t completely rehash. I’m just going to say that a comment was made that I really didn’t appreciate it. It was pretty disheartening, hurtful, and discouraging. For a moment, I felt like throwing in the towel. Then, I decided that NO ONE and NOTHING would steal my joy. If I want to do something, I WILL do it. It doesn’t matter who laughs, or thinks I’m stupid, or says I look funny. People are allowed to say and think what they want. They just aren’t allowed to stop me from DOING what I want. *I* have the power! So THERE! 🙂

Hope you’re having a great week. If you haven’t had a really great deep-belly laugh for the week, please call up your most hilarious friend and talk about nothing. That should do it.

A Favourite Song: After Tonight

This is one of those songs that is so honest and pure and true. You feel it. When he gets to the chorus, it’s like every word tugs at your heart a little more than the one before it. You can see it playing out. Like she’s been hoping and praying and wishing on stars… And he’s promising her that if she’d just give herself to him, he’d take her away, beyond the stars she’s been wishing on… And she’d never have a wish to make again. *sighs* Listen to it…

Did you feel it?

I also really like Be Back Soon.

Melanie’s Audition: Listen

Crazy, crazy, crazy.

Do you ever wonder about the talent that’s hidden in the people you walk by on the street? In the mall? The cashier at your neighbourhood grocery store?

Feel Good Friday

FEEL GOOD FRIDAY!

Look in the mirror. Smile. Acknowledge the beauty that is in you. Shining through. Be happy.

It`s your life
Thing may not always go right, for you
In those times
Just leave it behind, Cause
Sometimes you gotta play the game
Just to survive
Without losing yourself
It`s a fight, it`s true
It takes time
Don`t have all the answers
No matter how hard it gets
Hold on to what`s inside

Don`t never let nobody bring you down girl
Don`t never let nobody tear your world apart
Look in the mirrow and see who you are
Beautiful U R

In the dark (in the dark, in the dark)
The paint chips have waited your heart
So deep
Can`t you see (can’t you see)
See the light in the distance
Open up your eye, look, look to the sky
And believe (and believe, and believe, and believe)
There`s much more to life when you free
That`s the key
And in time (and in time)
You will find all the answers
Don`t have to loose your pride
Wondering what`s inside

Don`t never let nobody bring you down girl
Don`t never let nobody tear your world apart
Look in the mirrow and see who you are
Beautiful U R

Don`t never let nobody bring you down girl
Don`t never let nobody tear your world apart
Look in the mirrow and see who you are
Beautiful U R

Don`t care what they say anymore
(Don’t care what they say anymore)
There`s no time to be insecure
(There’s no time to be insecure)
I leave it all at the door

She stearing at him in the face
(She stearing at him in the face)
She`s taking it day by day
(She’s taking it day by day)
I`m finally on my way

Don`t never let nobody bring you down girl
Don`t never let nobody tear your world apart
Look in the mirrow and see who you are
Beautiful U R

Don`t never let nobody bring you down girl
Don`t never let nobody tear your world apart
Look in the mirrow and see who you are
Beautiful U R
Beautiful U R
Beautidul U R
Beautiful U R.

I feel it, it’s coming

Chorus:

Rain, feel it on my finger tips
Hear it on my window pane
Your love’s coming down like
Rain, wash away my sorrow
Take away my pain
Your love’s coming down like rain

When your lips are burning mine
And you take the time to tell me how you feel
When you listen to my words
And I know you’ve heard, I know it’s real
Rain is what this thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I’m not
I’m gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your

(chorus)

When you looked into my eyes
And you said goodbye could you see my tears
When I turned the other way
Did you hear me say
I’d wait for all the dark clouds bursting in a perfect sky
You promised me when you said goodbye
That you’d return when the storm was done
And now I’ll wait for the light, I’ll wait for the sun
Till I feel your

(chorus)

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say, never go away

Waiting is the hardest thing
[It’s strange I feel like I’ve known you before]
I tell myself that if I believe in you
[And I want to understand you]
In the dream of you
[More and more]
With all my heart and all my soul
[When I’m with you]
That by sheer force of will
[I feel like a magical child]
I will raise you from the ground
[Everything strange]
And without a sound you’ll appear
[Everything wild]
And surrender to me, to love

Rain is what the thunder brings
For the first time I can hear my heart sing
Call me a fool but I know I’m not
I’m gonna stand out here on the mountain top
Till I feel your

Rain, I feel it, it’s coming
Your love’s coming down like
(repeat)

(chorus)

Rain, I feel it, it’s coming
Your love’s coming down like
(repeat)

Rain
