Monday’s Music Mantra ~ Jan 25, 2016

Mondays Music Mantra tunes videoes


Hope everyone is having a fabulous Monday!  I for one had a bit of a rocky start to my morning but I am moving right along now and taking a little time to breathe and listen to some music.

First up is a band that has been around for awhile now.  This particular song dates back to 2009…a year that changed my life forever.

Dinosaur Jr. ~ Feel The Pain

Now I love R.E.M but I happened to catch the rendition of this song by this band on the radio the other day and loved it.  So decided to check out some more of their songs and I am hooked.

Lacuna Coil ~ Losing My Religion  It didn’t have the coding for the video available so just click the link and it will take you to the video.  I promise it won’t disappoint.

This next song came on during my workout this morning and put a little pep in my step.  Sometimes there’s just certain songs that get the endorphins rattled up.  This is one for me.  Plus I happen to love Lady Gaga’s oddness.  It’s put her on the map.  Have you seen her in the most recent season of American Horror Story?

Lady Gaga featuring Beyonce ~ Telephone

Last on my list today is a song that I do believe was the first song my hubby ever said reminded him of me when he would listen to it.  I heard it today and it brought back good memories and a smile.

3 Doors Down ~ I Need You

Have a music mind blowing Monday everyone!




~Monday’s Music Mantra~

monday music mantraMonday’s don’t always have to suck.  At least not while there is still music to listen to that is.  I am sure that some of you are back to work today after having some time off for Christmas so I am here to brighten your day with a little music choices of what I have been listening to this week.

First up is a group I have been listening to since sometime in my 20’s but had kind of forgotten about until one day I caught this song being played on the radio.  This is Sneaker Pimps “6 Underground”

This song will always make me think of my mini monster B because every time it comes on a certain commercial he jumps up and starts singing it.  This is Rachel Platten “Fight Song”

This is a band I hadn’t heard of.  I happened to be driving home from the city one day when this song came on and I really liked it.  This is Coldrain “Gone”.

I just really like this song.  This is Asking Alexandria “I Won’t Give In”

Yes I know the radio totally outplayed this song but have you heard the story behind the song?  If not, click here.  This is Nothing More “Jenny”.

What’s your favorite song these days?





Monday’s~ Music Mantra November 30,2015~

I have such a love ❤️ for music that I have decided to devote my Mondays to a list of some of what I have been playing on repeat for that week.  And poof!  Monday’s Music Mantra is born.

You can always tell what kind of mood I am in or what is going on in my head by what I am listening to.

Whether I am working out, cleaning the house, taking a bath, or just wanting to get in touch with my emotions…there’s always music to fulfill those moments.

Adelle “Hello” I actually stumbled upon one morning while I was working out.  I listen to Pandora when I work out and so it plays songs randomly.  The first time I heard this song I was hooked.

Gwen Stefani “I Used To Love You” has been on my list for awhile now.  If you haven’t heard it then you must be living under a rock.  I also wrote a recent post about my thoughts on her recent divorce and cheating husband.

Hellyeah “Moth” This is a great song to run on the treadmill to.  It also makes me think of myself and how I sometimes let my mind be drawn into things that I know aren’t the real me thinking that way.

Five Finger Death Punch “Wrong Side Of Heaven” This song has been a favorite of mine for a long time but I had never watched the video.  It’s powerful.  Especially after such recent events of tragedy and what will never be laid to rest.  While we are all sitting around our holiday tables and enjoying the time with our loved ones…don’t forget those who have lost their lives and loved ones due to hatred, religion, politics, and greed.  And for the veterans who are still here and trying to live with the calamity of where they have been and what they have been through.

3 Doors Down “Let Me Be Myself”  I have been a fan of these guys for years.  I have listened to this particular song a lot lately just because I have been working hard at working on myself.

Happy Monday!
