PHOTOSHOPPED: Colbie Caillat Music Video “Try”

Colbie Caillat’s new music video for her song Try is very interesting!  Elle Magazine interviewed her about it.  I wish Elle would take note themselves and reduce the demand for photoshopped images!  They photoshop everything but chubby bloggers attending their events.

If you’d like to purchase the new album you can do so here:

Gypsy Heart (Side A) – EP – Colbie Caillat

Music: Jason Castro – Safe House

 

This post is about a song by Jason Castro entitled Safe House.  He wrote this song after learning more about the fight against sex trafficking.  This issue is really embedded on my heart as I just returned from India to help girls that were forced into sex slavery.  This issue is so extreme and there is so much more work to do, but I can tell you that God is at work.  This song was shared with me (and others) by one of my teammates who went with me to India.  It really paints a picture of what happens in the lives of these young women and girls.

The version above is a video shared on YouTube but you can also listen to a professional recording of the song on SoundCloud.  This song is one of many new songs Jason has produced on his new album, Only a Mountain (Deluxe Version) – Jason Castro.  You can purchase the album and song on iTunes.

Christian Version – Wake Me Up – AVICII

Avicii - Wake Me Up - Video - Screenshot - featured on womanlywoman.comI was listening to Pandora, when I came up with the idea that I should write a Christian version of my favorite song.

My altered lyrics are in italics:

“I woke Up”

Feeling my way through the darkness
Guided by a beating heart
I can’t tell where the journey will end
But I know where to start

They tell me I’m too young to understand
They say I’m caught up in a dream
Well life will pass me by if I don’t open up my eyes
Then Jesus Christ helped me see

[2x]
I woke up and love won me over
Now I’m wiser and I’m a lover
All this time I was finding Christ
And I didn’t know I was lost

I tried carrying the weight of the world
But I only have two hands
Hope I get the chance to travel the world
But God gave me my plans

Now I’ll stay forever with Christ
Now he’s opened my eyes
Life’s a game made for everyone
And love is the prize

[2x]
I woke up and love won me over
Now I’m wiser and I’m a lover
All this time I was finding Christ
And I didn’t know I was lost

Didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost
I didn’t know I was lost

Here’s the lyric video to the original song:

Money in the Bank

Just got back from Affiliate Summit in Vegas where I developed relationships so I can make this blog profitable. I have to pay for my mission trip to India and that dress I bought at the Monte Carlo while waiting for my flight. So when I got back, I started chatting with some of my biz contacts. One of them is Stephen from Dedicated Media. His company sponsored the conference and because of them I’ll be able to post some awesome stuff from some seriously awesome brands to add value to the life of my readers.

During our Skype conversation, Stephen inspired me to share this video with ya’ll:

Whole Foods Parking Lot

This video is my favorite internet video of all time. In fact, I’ve already blogged about it. But I don’t care. It needs to be shared again.

I used to be a regular at Whole Foods because I worked at Bed, Bath and Beyond and would go there for my break. Every single thing mentioned in this song is absolutely true. I’ve also noticed it to be true at Trader Joe’s, just with lower prices and TJ brand stuff.

Here is my favorite video of all time:

I know you love it, too, so…

Music Topping the Charts #MM

Music Monday on WomanlyWoman.com #MM #MusicMondayI really enjoy finding music for Music Monday on Twitter (#MM) but I never seem to want to make the actual post on Monday. Sometimes I schedule them to post but for this one, I’m posting it early because I’m excited about this music. My favorite video of all I posted is the last one, so be sure to make it all the way to the bottom of this post! You’ll appreciate it.

Everyone has heard of the Billboard music charts, so that is the first list I checked.  Here are a few songs I liked from that list:


Download on iTunes:
Wake Me Up – Single – Avicii


Download on iTunes:
Native – OneRepublic


Download on iTunes:
The Heist – Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Another list I check on occasion is CMJ.  They keep track of the College Music charts.  Having been a Disc Jockey in college, we used to have to keep track of the songs we played and then a report was made to the CMJ and the music we liked and played the most was factored into what made the charts.  Many of the songs we played from independent artists and up and coming musicians were later then discovered by radio stations all over the world.  So if you want to know what is going to happen next in music, you check these charts.

These are albums that made their list and I selected a video to show you:

Modern Vampires of the City – Vampire Weekend


Fade – Yo La Tengo

#HowTo do The Wobble

Let's go! Cyclones! via womanlywoman

Let’s go! Cyclones! via womanlywoman

The other day I went to the Cincinnati Cyclones game and and they played this song.  I heard the song when it first came out on one of my Pandora stations.  I think the song itself is hilarious.

Anyhow, at the game tons of people seemed to know the dance so I became curious.  Then while writing a blog post for my other blog about what people Googled this year, I came across the song again as one of the most googled dance moves.

So I decided that I need to know how to do this dance and I am going to share it with you.
