Born This Way now with a Teenage Daughter so i’ll Shake It Off and drink Red Red Wine while i Stand By You

Hope y’all had a nice Easter weekend – it’s crazy how Easter seems to be as big as Christmas in the loot the kids get (I’m very guilty for contributing to the excess). I toned it down this year, though, and the kids didn’t seem to mind, so score!

Meanwhile it’s Monday, and Monday of course means music! Our talented Spotlight Dancer Patrick Weseland of Adventures in Weseland, selected this week’s theme – 5 songs (or the amount you want) about you! Yes, songs about you… that describe you! Let’s have some fun!

Let’s start off with a song that has been described as a “magical message”, and also a notable departure from this artist’s previous works. It’s also the perfect ‘beginning’ song for songs that describe me. You’ll see.

LadyGaga

What better place to start than at the beginning, right? Here’s with ”:

Next up is another song that hits close to home. The song was inspired by this artist’s oldest daughter and the teenage growing pains she was going through. Obviously, now that Princess Nagger is officially a teen, you see why it hits close to home.

The artist was quoted as saying:

“It’s interesting to me that there haven’t been other songs written about it, because almost everybody goes through it. I have an awesome relationship with my 16-year-old daughter, but about a year and a half ago, I started noticing a shift. It stopped being all about me and it was more about her friends. Which it should be. It’s perfectly normal. But as the person who was the center of the universe to this child, you go, ‘Oh. Well, this is a journey.'”

All three of artist’s children appear in the song’s . The proud mom was surprised “how natural they were.”

“I don’t think we could have casted actors who could have done any better. It was a lot to put on them – we didn’t have a rehearsal. They kinda just got thrown into it. Delaney especially has a flair for comedic acting. It really surprised me in that I had never seen her do that before. I loved sharing the experience with them. We’ll always have that.”

MartinaMcBride

Give a listen to Martina McBride with ”:

Next up is a song that fits perfectly, from the teenage angst going on under my roof right now, to the not-so-mythical “Seattle Freeze” I’ve been experiencing from some family members and former friends. It totally fits!

TaylorSwift

Next up is a song that fits me perfectly, considering I love making wine. I’ll be getting my “She-Shed” all ready this summer for room to do that in our new house, I’m chomping at the bit to get things going full grape again. 

UB40

Here’s the timeless with “Red Red Wine”:

And finally, a song that is the epitome of me for those that choose me as their friend – I’m fiercely loyal, one who is on my friends’ side no matter what, ready to war with them and take on whatever obstacle life presents. Always a fighter and faithful sidekick through thick and thin. In other words, I’ll always .

Here’s the gorgeous  with “Stand By You”:

That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday!

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.
