Hello Everyone! It’s so nice to see you again, I hope you like my new blog design, I did it all myself and I’m pretty proud of it! I also have a new blog button, the old one works still, but if you want to switch things up a bit, go ahead and grab it!
Speaking of being proud of something….
Every week our mix tape has a theme, and this week our theme is Guilty Pleasures: Songs or Bands you hate to admit you love, offered to us by Sarah The Sadder But Wiser Girl.
This mix is way too easy for me to make, I mean really, I have never hidden the fact that I love The Bee Gees, George Michael, The Carpenters, ABBA and basically every cheesy 70’s song out there.
So wait. Maybe this will be harder than I thought. If I’m not afraid to admit it, then…. well, I’ll dig a little deeper for you folks. You’re welcome.
A Guilty Pleasures Playlist
Gold – Britt Nicole It was actually a Facebook post that introduced me to this song. It has an amazing message, all girls should listen to it on repeat until they can’t stand it anymore but the message is ingrained in their brain.
You Belong With Me – Taylor Swift Because, she has an amazing voice and a gift for catchy tunes, and yes, there are more than one Taylor songs on my iPod. Also, I love this video.
What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction Thank you Just Dance 4 for this one. I know the dance by heart, and it’s always my first choice when we head to the basement for a dance party.
Even the Nights Are Better – Air Supply I’m sorry, but if you were a teenager in the 80’s I think you’d be lying if you said that a little Air Supply didn’t make you wax nostalgic. For me it’s in a good way, so they still have a place on my iPod.
Don’t Turn Around – Ace of Base Yes I have their Greatest Hits, yes I had to listen to all of them to decide which to put on the list. BTW my sister hates Ace of Base, there’s not a lot of things that annoy her, so this is that ace up my sleeve.
When I Get You Alone – Glee Cast. Guess what? If it wasn’t for Glee I probably wouldn’t know ANY pop songs at all. I didn’t even know this song was Robin Thicke until this year, but I’ve been listening to it for 3 years as part of my playlist of Glee’s Greatest Hits (my choice, not theirs). Also, since we are spilling the beans, I have downloaded more Glee songs than any other artist. (Of course I owned over 1000 CD’s pre-iPod that I uploaded). And this is an AMAZING version. Give it a listen, you won’t be sorry.
So now it’s your turn to spill the beans. Come on, don’t be shy! We’re all friends here, it’s like a sleepover party, we’re playing truth or dare, and you get truth.
These are the rules. Five songs (do your best to stick to it, I really do listen to every mix and I don’t want you to wait). Stick to the theme (as best you can). Try and check out at least two of the other players or more! (everyone wants to share their tunes with you).
Create a mix, not a “hey look at all the cool songs I know” we’re not snobs, if you were our best bud and you were gonna make us a tape, what would it be? And share this party so more people will play next week!
Do me a favor, if you’re a veteran, try to visit at least one person you’ve never visited before.
