Shani Asks You Sundays – Travel Plans

I am currently in the process of hammering out the final details of my next 2 trips (France in April, Brazil for the World Cup in June), so I was wondering what your travel plans were!

What’s your next trip you have planned? Or, where would you like it to be?

I have a guide to international beauty shopping brewing in my head, so stay tuned for that before I go away. 😉

Music Monday #25 – “On leur a fait croire” by Alex Nevsky

I had written about how much I’ve loved Alex Nevksy’s latest album. Because of the language barrier, I obviously don’t get the nuances of the lyrics, so sometimes I listen without noticing. But just last week, this one stuck out to me. Hard.

“We’ve made them believe in love.” I know this song is dark, but sounds happy. And I like that.

Music Monday #24 – “Completely Not Me” by Jenny Lewis

Yes, I watch Girls. And, yes, I learn about music from it. Don’t judge me.

Especially because this is great.

Music Monday #21 – “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette

I sang this song at karaoke on Saturday night, and was reminded what an incredible, amazing, cathartic song it is to sing along to at the top of your lungs.

Happy Monday, everyone.

Music Monday #19 – “Punching in a Dream” by Naked and Famous

Affilier Acheté

The Naked and Famous may have a new album out, but it’s still Passive Me, Aggressive You that so often comes up on my mp3 player. This one in particular gets stuck in my head all the time.

It’s a good anthem for a Monday.

Music Monday #18 – “I Follow Rivers” by Lykke Li

I just saw Blue Is the Warmest Color yesterday, and this song stuck in my head from Adèle’s birthday party, so it’s what’s on my mind today.

What are you listening to today?

And have you seen the movie? I have some thoughts after the cut for spoilers.

Music Monday #17 – “Hounds of Love” by The Futureheads

Just the other day I was explaining to someone why I sometimes like the Glee version of songs better than the original. I’m a sucker for harmonies, and the way Glee arranges them really get to me.

Same with today’s song. I know it’s nearly sacrilege to say that you don’t love something that Kate Bush has done, and maybe it’s because I heard this version of the song before hers (yes, I have big gaps in my musical education), but to me this version is not just a cover, it’s a reimagining. It breathes so much life into the song. It makes it unforgettable. (Really, I dare you to get it out of your head.)

So, without further ado, The Futureheads covering “Hounds of Love.”

They’re one of my favorite bands, and one of the most fun bands to see (and travel to see) in concert. It’s been way, way, WAY too long since they were out here, though!

Do you ever like covers better than the originals? What are you listening to today?
