Tune-In Tuesday: Unconditionally

Happy Tuesday! The American Music Awards were this past Sunday night, and Katy Perry had the honor of opening the show with her new single, Unconditionally. The set, the dancers, the lyrics, her voice … all of it was fantastically top notch. LOVE Kady, and every time I see her perform, she gives me hope and leaves me looking forward to what she’ll do next. And this video? Amazing. 😉 Enjoy!     Related posts: Tune-In Tuesday: Titanium Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Demons by Imagine Dragons

Welcome back to Tune-In Tuesday! I’m just now realizing how long it’s been since I’ve posted. *head desk* When the muse hits and demands you edit, edit, edit one project and write, write, write another project, you listen. And sometimes when we listen and obey we get so caught up in that work that everything else falls through the cracks. Agree? Cool. Now onto today’s music. 😉 I’ve been loving on the band Imagine Dragons lately. As in, I’m listening […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind

We’re taking it back this week on Tune-In Tuesday to an old favorite by Boston: Peace of Mind. The good thing about writing playlists is you can have such a variety of music–from Boston to Thirty Seconds to Mars, from The Beatles to Muse, from Madonna to Evanescence. I, for one, really enjoy the good vibes and inability to sit still when bands such as Boston, AC/DC, and Foreigner come on the radio. Enjoy! What about you? Are there any […]

Tune-In Tuesday: Titanium

Welcome back to another Tune-In Tuesday installment! Who doesn’t love a song about strength? About facing down the world and telling ’em that no matter how many insults they fire at you, breaking is not an option. 🙂 Today’s song conveys just that–“Titanium” by David Guetta, featuring Sia. Enjoy!     Happy Listening and Writing! Related posts: Tune-In Tuesday: Peace of Mind Tune-In Tuesday: Demons by Imagine Dragons Tune-In Tuesday: Unconditionally Tune-In Tuesday: Magic by Coldplay

Tune-In Tuesday: I’m Not Alright

I’ve been a Shinedown kick lately, so today’s song comes to us from … you guessed it, Shinedown. 😀 This song is from their latest album, Amaryllis — which I highly recommend for immediate purchase and download. Have a listen of “I’m Not Alright”: Still not convinced that this album is worth immediate download? Listen to more tracks from the album over on Grooveshark. 🙂 *Tune-In Tuesday is a weekly post for musical sharing. Whatever song’s keeping you sane or […]

Writerly Wednesday: Lesson Learned from ‘Across the Universe’…and a Playlist Plotting Contest

Welcome to the first of two contests that I’m holding this month. Both contests are based off the lessons that can be extracted from two particular movies. Today’s movie: Across the Universe Plot per IMBD: “The music of the Beatles and the Vietnam War form the backdrop for the romance between an upper-class American girl and a poor Liverpudlian artist.” First we’ll start with a quick introduction: Hi, my name is Melinda Collins and I am a perfectionist with OCD […]
