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.

Naturally 7

Day 25 – The reason you believe you’re still alive today.

GRACE. That’s all I can really say on that. Grace. And mercy.

I’m glad this came up. Seems like the perfect time to introduce one of my FAVOURITE bands. They are AWESOME. We all know about acapella. We’ve seen and heard it done a million times. Yes, it can be great. It can be brilliant. But WAIT. There is something MUCH GREATER.

VOCAL PLAY.

This group. Is. AMAZING. They do VOCAL PLAY. Don’t know what that is? Believe me when I tell you that your life is about to get waaayyy better. And your mind may be blown. Actually, I’m pretty sure it will be. And I’m smart. So you’dbetter wear a helmet before you go any further.

The group is called Naturally 7. 7 guys. 7 very good looking guys, by the way. *whistles* They sing with no musical instruments like drums, bass, guitars, pianos, etc. But there IS music. And the instruments are their voices. YES. They MAKE THE SOUNDS OF OTHER INSTRUMENTS. WITH THEIR VOICES. I know you don’t believe. So I’m going to give it to you on a platter. Right now. Taste and see. Well… Watch and listen. Whatever.

My FAVOURITE of the songs they sing is Say You Love Me. This one doesn’t showcase all that they can do, but it’s my favourite, so it has to be the first (with vocal play).

I should have also mentioned by this point that this is a gospel group. The guys are all Christians. None of their music is secular.

This is where your mind will be blown. Please. Take a moment to click (to fasten) the little strappy thing under your chin. I don’t want brain matter splattering everywhere.

Yeah. That’s real. No faking. I saw them in concert TWICE. I kept looking for the hidden stuff. Nothing. It’s all them. I promise you.

Check this out. They really saaaaang this popular song, Broken Wings.

This is another of my favourites. It really shows what they can do. Remind yourself as you listen to this that everything you hear is made up of the voices of 7 guys. That’s it.

Sometimes, they kinda stick to acapella. Like in this song:

Still amazing, right? Yeah, I know. I wish I could take credit for it.

Now, I have to highlight the skills of my personal favourites, because I’m biased like that.

Yeaaaah! Happy Sunday!

Friday Favourites

A few of my favourite things:

(Warning: This list is food-heavy)

Fruit on the go: Gala Apples. But they have to be cut up. I have issues with eating around bones/seeds.

Fruit at home: Mangooooo! I like it peeled and cut up into bite sized pieces.

Salad at home: The ones Babe makes. Lettuce, tomato, cucumber, peppers, and whatever fruit we have with a mix of dressings.

Salad at a restaurant: GREEK, but only if they do it right. If not, I go for the Caesar. And I like my caesar salad TOSSED. Lol. Because I’m the princess, they do it that way for me at my godfather and dad’s restaurant.

Weather: When I’m out, I like the sun shining, and pleasant breeze, no humidity. At home, I like it cool, and some rain doesn’t hurt the night either. (This is when I’m in the Bahamas.)

Season: In Bahamas, Winter. It’s not a real winter, but it’s the only time the weather is nice, to me. Unless I’m able to beach. Then I’m okay with Spring. Summer is just too hot. Not pleasant at all, for me. In Canada, Autumn. Sooo beautiful. And the weather is a nice in-between little sandwich.

Things to do at home: When Babe is there, cook and eat together, watch a movie or tv show, cuddle, and go to sleep. When Babe isn’t there, clean like mad, catch up on things that require use of the computer, call Babe and fall asleep on the phone.

Drink with lunch: Coke. Except when it’s Sunday, and we’re having lunch at Ma’s. Then I want her iced tea.

TV Show: Chopped (Food Network)

Channel: Food Network. USA and TNT come close. I like Law & Order, NCIS, etc.

Food: I like food too much to really say what my absolute favourite food item is. I can say, thought, that I looove STARCH. Pasta, potatoes, rice, bread. That’s the stuff right there!

Vegetable: Broccoli and asparagus

Canned meat: Close one, between tuna and corned beef, but I’m going to have to go with tuna. I use corned beef for one particular dish (which Babe and I LOOOVE), but we use tuna for a few different things. I’ll post the recipe for the corned beef dish soon, in case anyone wants to give it a try.

Night-time beverage: Tea. I’m very particular. I like Lipton (Yellow Label) with 2 3/4 sugar and cream (never creamer or milk) to make it about my complexion. Mmm!

Night-time snack: Popcorn and chocolate ice cream. Together. This is something Babe got me into. Salty and sweet.

Day-time snack: Apples, Kirkland Fruit & Nut mix, Welch’s Fruit Snacks.

Dairy product: Though I haven’t bought any for a while, probably yogurt. Yoplait.

Breakfast: Grits and tuna, or veggie + mushroom omelette with turkey bacon and grilled cheese sandwich.
