These Mondays seem to arrive faster and faster as of late. I’m assuming that it’s because the weather has been increasingly nice – the weekends fly by much faster when that happens.
Since we already have to face Monday, let’s dance the day away, shall we? This week’s theme is a freebie, so grab a favorite tune and join in the fun!
It’s no secret that Alanis Morissette is one of my long-time favorite artists. She was recently on The Late Late Show With James Corden, and they redid “Ironic” with more ‘modern day’ lyrics. I know you’ll get a kick out of it like I did!
Here’s Alanis Morissette and James Corbin with the updated “Ironic”:
Next up is an island-tinged track that evokes laid-back Caribbean vibes. The artist was recently quoted as saying:
“The kind of reggae-type stuff is kind of polarizing. Some people either love it or hate it, but to me, Bob Marley’s my favorite artist of all time, and if you can capture that kind of feeling that’s in some of those songs.”
Get ready to be whisked away to the islands via Zac Brown Band with “Castaway”:
Next up is a heartfelt piano-led ballad that was written by this former Wanted star as his first solo UK Top 10 hit. The popularity of the song was boosted by a live performance on The X Factor back in November.
Get ready for some major goosebumps from the cutie Nathan Sykes with “Over And Over Again”:
Next up is a song I stumbled across when looking for songs that fit the criteria of last week’s theme, but since it’s a more recent song, it didn’t quite fit in the parameters of the theme. But I had to share it, just because.
This song plays at the end credits of The Smurfs 2 movie. The artist had her own two sons in mind when she agreed to record the tune.
Give a listen to Britney Spears with “Ooh La La”:
And last but not least, a bonus video I stumbled across yesterday when looking up the previous Britney tune information. This is extremely well done, a megamix mashup of Britney Spears‘ top hits – it’s kinda mesmerizing if you ask me.
The Country Club Martini Crew released this just a couple of days ago in anticipation for some big news from Britney that’s dropping today. We’ll see what all the hubbub is about.
Enjoy the “Britney Spears Country Club Martini Crew Megamix”:
That’s a wrap for this week – have a great Monday!
