Alright friends, Monday is upon us which means we need to start the week off right! And, what better way to do so, than to rock out to some of our favorite tunes -- via a well rounded playlist! So this week, I want to share with you which musical pleasures are currently keeping my spirits up & feet-a-tappin'! I have included some newbies as well as some oldie-but-goodies that I think you're totally gonna dig.
Wanna hear em? Alright, see below to check out my 'top 10' picks of the week (in no particular order), plus embedded vids so you can listen!
Bruno Mars - 'It Will Rain'
In celebration of Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 hitting theatres this week, it's a fact that Bruno Mars' newest single (featured in the movie, of course) remains on repeat! Including some of our favorite vampires, check out the amazing music vid below!
Rihanna - 'You Da One'
Releasing her album, Talk That Talk on November 21st - Rihanna continues to impress me with each single she puts out. And, after listening to a leaked version of it last week. I'm obsessed. This song in particular is my new vice, check it!
Jack's Manneiquin - 'My Racing Thoughts'
From Something Corporate to JM, I will always remain a true Andrew McMahon fan! He released People and Things, just last month - which is amazing! (by the way.) And, although it's difficult to pick just one favorite off the album, this one's definitely a highlight!
Tom Petty - 'Learning To Fly'
Tom Petty always seems to make it on my playlist one way or another. His classic tunes lift my spirits and make me smile! This week, 'Learning To Fly' is the single that makes the cut!
(Oh, how my father would be proud!)
2AM Club - 'Reach Down Deep'
2AM Club is indeed a Hollywire favorite! Over the past couple of years we've kept up with the talented six-some, and are always excited when they put out new stuff.
Check out their newest tune below. It. Totally. Rocks!
Mary J. Blige ft Drake - 'Mr. Wrong'
How can a song that features two of hip-hops best, not make it on this week's playlist? Enough said. Take a listen, yo!
The Fray- 'Heartbeat'
The Fray's piano driven, unique pop rock sound are what make them one of my ultimate favorites! While I'm more than eager for these talented fellas to hit the road for their next tour, for now I bask in their newest song. I present new music by The Fray. Eat your heart out.
Paramore - 'Hello Cold War'
Hayley Williams is as talented as they come. With lyrics that read, "It’s not the way you plan it, it’s how you make it happen." The little lady always inspires me!
Notorious B.I.G - 'Juicy'
A classic. I randomly listened to this song yesterday, and it brought me back to my good ol' college days (sigh). And that's why I chose to add it to this week's playlist.
Before you listen below, I just have one thing to say: "Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, When I was dead broke, man I couldn't picture this!"
Outasight - 'Tonight is the Night'
A feel good song I've been digging lately. Check it out. Good vibes, yea?
