Whatever It Takes gonna Strip That Down and Sway because there’s No Freedom

Monday is here, and we have one  more day of sunny weather before quite a few days of rain this week, so I’m working on getting my fall decorations all decked out – a little behind this year, but who’s counting, eh?

Meanwhile, it’s Monday, which means that it’s time for some music! This week is a freebie, so grab your favorite tune(s) and come dance along, won’t you?

Let’s start with a song I shared a couple of weeks ago, but I love it, and they just released the official . You’re welcome.

Enjoy with”:

Next up, with this sexy urban jam, this artist became the final member of One Direction to release solo material – he co-wrote the song with Ed Sheeran.

The collaboration was sparked by an unexpected call from Sheeran in the late summer of 2016. The artist was quoted as saying:

“I was in a gym in LA, and I got a call that said ‘You have to get to London now.’ And we had literally just gotten to L.A., so we U-turned straight back to London — which of course you do for Mr. Ed Sheeran, because I’d do anything for the man. We went in, sat around and discussed a bunch of things about life, and [the song] basically just came together.”

If you listen carefully, you’ll catch the apparent One Direction dis during the pre-chorus:

You know, I used to be in 1D (now I’m out, free) / People want me for one thing (that’s not me) / I’m not changing, the way, that I (used to be) / I just wanna have fun (and get rowdy)

Things that make you go hmmmmmm… He insists he isn’t turning on the band, and was quoted later as saying:

“I never wanted it to be taken in a negative light. First of all I thought a hiatus was some sort of religious thing, so when they said hiatus I thought we were all going to turn into monks or something.”

“But I actually think the hiatus works out best for everyone because we all get to explore our music. But we will get back together at a certain point.”

Fun Fact: Ed Sheeran also contributes uncredited vocals. That’s him singing, girl.”

Without further ado, here’s with “Strip That Down”:

Next up is the lead single of this artist’s sophomore album. Critics responded positively to her new direction, describing her as “one with a groovy, soulful, passionate single that fits on the radio like the cool new kid in high school. Vocally she climbs the ladder, but never shows off.”

Last, but certainly not least, this artist kicked off her week-long fun on the Tonight Show the day after the horrific Las Vegas shootings. In honor of the victims of the tragic shooting, she and performed this very special duet.

Give a listen to and Adam Sandler with “No Freedom”:

That’s a wrap for this week – see you on the dance floor.

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.

  1. Stacy,

    Imagine Dragon really gets me movin’! All of your other “freebie” picks are new-to-me, which was great to listen to and get my body groovin’ this morning. Thanks for sharing the dance floor with me today, my friend. BTW, you came to mind the other day while in Home Depot and I saw a display of T-Rex hatchlings. I knew you’d like these given your dinosaur fetish. 🙂 TTFN!

  2. Funny, we both had a song called “Sway” in our lists, but they were different. For another blonde country singer (seems like there are so many), she was quite good. Good choices!

  3. Who dah thought Miley Cyrus and Adam Sandler? Beautiful song I must say and luvin the tune SWAY too… I listened to that one twice… I must’ve been livin’ under a rock again because I haven’t heard any of these tunes! Girlfriend you’ve ROCKED the house once again!!! Great tunes! Have a rockin’ week girlfriend and thanks for the boogie woogie!!! HUGS!

  4. No Freedom – what a duet, and I’m happy to see Miley Cyrus continue to gain maturity and grow as the talented artist she is. I continue to also grow in my enjoyment of Imagine Dragons. Thank you for these musical experiences.
