Taking you WAY back to the 80’s! I remember skating my backside off to this song while dreaming that someone would pick me to dance in the movie, Breakin’ Two – Electric Boogaloo.

This is the original song, by the original artist, George Kranz.

Unless you have yet to see the movie, Despicable Me 2, I don’t think this song needs any introduction at all. It makes me just want to jump around and smile and twirl and laugh until I pass out! So if you’re in a sour mood, or if your day sucks, take a look. I dare you *teehee*.

So click here to enjoy Happy by Pharrell Williams or use the video embedded below. Enjoy!

The week has flown by and it’s already Tuesday! A bit slow getting my music up, but I think you’ll enjoy this pick.

As most of you know, I write a series called the Vampire Council of Ethics. One of my favorite villains in vampiredom is the character, Akasha, played by Aliyah alongside Stewart Townsend. In tribute to one of the bands who made the music for Queen of the Damned so freaking awesome my picK this week is: Cold by Static-X, whose lead singer passed away this weekend.

Enjoy and get your rock-and-roll on while you watch Queen of the Damned again. It never gets old!

Was watching YouTube while laid up with a icky cold over the weekend. I absolutely love Yanis Marshall so I had to watch a few of his vids. He’s an amazing choreographer. And as a feminist, I think that anyone should be able to dance in heels if they want to, minus labels or judgment. When Yanis was asked, “Why do you dance in heels?” His answer was, “Well, why not? My mother has forty pairs of heels so I learned to dance in them. It’s hard, and sometimes you fall on your *bleep*.” Enjoy. The man has some serious moves! YanisMarshall

I’ve included the video here, but if it doesn’t appear for you, click this link of Yanis Marshall dancing to Ride by Ciara to view the video.

I’m in an interesting mood today. Feeling somewhat cranky and romantic at the same time. Now how one does that is still beyond me *smile*, but it’s no less true. And since I’m feeling all romantic-y (I know it’s not a word, but you get me) I’ve watched a few romantic-y movies this weekend. So here’s my Music Monday pick. Recognize it?

I’ve embedded the video from YouTube, but if it doesn’t display, please use this link:

It’s Monday!

And today I have a real oldie-but-goodie song on my mind. This morning I was talking with someone and they asked how I was doing. My response was, “I’m fine. I’m…giddy!” Picture in your mind, Inara Sera from Firefly/Serenity snapping at Captain Tight Pants (Mal Reynolds) at the beginning of the movie, Serenity…and you have ME!

Yep, that’s my mood – snarky and sarcastic with a genuine smile :)

Happy Monday!

I got this idea from fellow author and all-around cool chic, Selena Illyria to post what music is on my mind.

I’m a Lord of the Rings nutball, but this song has been on my mind like crazy. I mean, almost down to the gut level of my consciousness. I’m not sure why. It could be because of all the current “crazy” going on in the world today or…I’m just really not sure. Ever have that feeling that something is coming, but you’re just not sure what? It could be good, bad or otherwise, but you know it’s SOMETHING. Hmmm…

I’ve embedded the video on my blog, but if it’s not showing, here’s a link:
