All I Want For Christmas – Chatroulette Version
Yeah, I know what you guys wanted.
The Monster – Eminem ft. Rihanna
Why is Eminem so popular? Well he puts his all into his work and he has such a way with words,
cause all I wanted to do’s be
The Bruce Lee of loose leaf
Eminem always makes interesting videos and this newest is no different. We get to relive some of his past videos alongside the monster within. Rihanna is a sexy therapist and rocks dark lipstick while singing one of the most popular hooks of this year. The imagery is pretty dark, but all in all a simple visual metaphor for a great song. Enjoy!

I. Crawl – Childish Gambino
I. Crawl – Childish Gambino
I have been listening to Childish Gambino‘s new album for the last week (on&off). I am surprised that Crawl is not his first single, it has a great beat and energy to it, but his first and second singles 3005 and Sweatpants are also fine choices.
The artist looks familiar you say? Well, many may already know him for his comedic side as he is best known as the actor Donald Glover. Still no bells? He plays Troy on Community! While watching his performance on Jimmy Kimmel I was fascinated by how different he was on stage. He still has that presence that keeps you watching him, but his demeanor is more focused and you can feel his passion for the music.
If you read my music posts, you know by now that I am addicted to words and the referential lyrics in this track really tickle me.
And I’m only looking back if I’m looking at her booty
(At her Boooty)
Yeah. I murder some, I murder one
Explain it all, Ferguson
Check it out!

Timber – Pitbull feat. Ke$ha
hahahaha, I am so tickled by this song. I just find it hilarious. It is a catchy tune and Ke$ha brings her own brand of dance talk rap to the track making this a perfect Tuesday-ramp-up-for-the-week song.
No Seriously, the chorus is “It’s going down, I’m yelling timber / You better move, you better dance…” Everyone in the video is dressed in slutty-country-couture, well not Pitbull, but he does square dance on a white sand beach. “Swing your partner round and round / End of the night, it’s going down” I think that counts? Its only Tuesday, we all need a good laugh. Oh, and no, I do not apologize for getting this song stuck in your head. If I must suffer then I am taking you down with me.

Bastille – Pompeii
It’s Monday… “How am I gonna be an optimist about this?”, but I have a nice energy boost to get us through this. Sip your coffee and take a quick break to watch a video and psych yourself up to dealing what this crazy week shall bring.
This guy is suffering some sort of insomnia-tic episode and he wanders the streets in the wee hours to discover that everyone around him has undergone a change where their eyes are blacked out. He fights this change, but does he eventually succumb? Watch and find out.

Friday I’m In Love – The Cure
Remember the Cure? Oh yeah you do! The eyeliner, the crazy hair and the most amazing Friday song in history! Sorry Danny, Rebecca Black is not going to make my list. I love this song and it is cheezy, but c’mon aren’t you enjoying the video? It is so dated and ridiculous paired with such a great melody. It is a winning combo and so fitting for the first Friday in December. Enjoy!

Wake Me Up – Avicii
In my quest for daily music videos I found this gem. Wake Me Up – Avicii has been all over the radio and has become a fast favorite for me. This song is high energy and when listened to in moderation can be just the right pick-me-up. It is Thursday and that means we need a push of energy to get to the weekend!
The video is fun and conveys a simple message of finding your place in the world. I have included the lyrics after the jump. Enjoy!
P.S. Anyone else annoyed at how much product placement is in this video? Read More…
Demons – Imagine Dragons
“No matter what we breed / We still are made of greed” – “Demons” by Imagine Dragons
Are you sensing a theme this week? I am trying to find some mellow tunes with uplifting themes. I feel like this week is about repairing the damage done to humanity by the start of the Holiday Shopping / Black Friday craziness. Damn people, its just a TV. Pop in your earbuds and chill out. I am here to help.
I have mentioned in previous posts that I love this album. Demons is one of the latest singles from this album and it is even holding its own on the top singles for iTunes. It has a message that seems to resonate with people and it makes for a great listen. Let me know what you think of the message in the comments section I would love to discuss. 😉
Dirty Paws – Of Monsters and Men
I love this song because of how uplifting it is. I am counting down to Christmas and this song has slipped onto my Christmas radar due to its inclusion in the trailer for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I really enjoyed this song when it was on the radio and it helped me to unwind from crazy work days. The song has a melody that is wonderful on its own, but the lyrics are a light, cute story which just chronicles forest battles. Point of this is… this is a sweet uplifting song and yeah…check it out.
This song is a huge part of why I am so excited for the new Ben Stiller movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It is not often that a soundtrack can sell me on a movie, but I feel like this movie will have a soundtrack on par with Zach Braff’s Garden State soundtrack. Enjoy the lyric video for this uplifting song.

Sweater Weather – The Neighbourhood
I am sure if you’ve been listening to the radio lately you have heard Sweater Weather. It has a mellow beat that manages to be upbeat… think The Postal Service’s version of Such Great Heights. The video for this song is basically the visual for the lyrics, which i really enjoy once in a while. It is a date shot in black and white which compliments and highlights the fun lyrics of this breakout song from The Neighbourhood. I am really enjoying the album and thought you all would too.
