Music Monday: Christmas In My Heart – Loving Caliber ft. Mia Pfirrman

Happy Monday! Currently I’m heading into my last week of summer break and that means I’m beginning to panic over school. But I hope to keep up blogging consistently…though last week proved to be difficult. I have a bit of a writer’s block so if you don’t see poems or other posts it’s because of that.

Anyway, for this Music Monday I wanted to share a bit of holiday spirit in July. I was walking through Hallmark the other day and they were playing Christmas music, putting me in this holiday mood. (A little secret though, Christmas isn’t my favorite holiday, Halloween is ๐ŸŽƒ )

As always, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. Join in by sharing one of your favorite songs and its lyrics!

Happy Monday and winter holidays in July! ๐ŸŽ„

โœจ๐ŸŽ„ Song & Lyrics ๐ŸŽโœจ

(Intro)
Hold up I am on my way
I'm in motion
Letโ€™s go to the ocean
Yeah, let's go outside

(Verse)
We can hang out on the beach without freezing
Yeah isn't that amazing?
In Christmas times

(Chorus)
Weโ€™ll be chillin' and having a good good time
Doesn't matter if the snow is fallin'
All the windows, and the rain is pourin'
It will always be Christmas in my heart
But this year I
Wanna hang out with my friends and family
Making angels in the sand you and me
Doesn't matter, it is Christmas in my heart

(Verse)
And I can promise Santa's coming to visit
No he wouldn't miss this
In Christmas times
Ohh
(Bridge)
Oh and, sunset it is just getting better on a blanket with a skylight painted in blue
Ooh, thatโ€™s what we do

(Chorus)
Weโ€™ll be chillin' and having a good good time
Doesnโ€™t matter if the snow is fallin'
All the windows, and the rain is pourin'
It will always be Christmas in my heart
But this year I
Wanna hang out with my friends and family
Making angels in the sand you and me
Doesn't matter, it is Christmas in my heart

(Bridge)
Here we go!
Alright
(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance)
Now this Christmas, weโ€™re gonna dance
(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance)
Okay?
Come on!
(Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance)
We're gonna dance, dance, and have a good time
Gonna dance, dance, all night long
We're gonna dance, dance, and have a good time
I think Santa's gonna come and join us in this song
Ooh yeah!

(Chorus)
Doesn't matter if the snow is fallin'
(Snow is fallin')
All the windows, and the rain is pouring'
(Pourin'!)
It will always be Christmas in my heart
But this year I
Wanna hang out with my friends and family
Making angels in the sand you and me
(You and me! Yeah!)
Doesn't matter it is Christmas in my heart

Until we meet again…I hope you have a lovely day โค

Music Memories Monday: Leave It All to Shine – iCarly & Victorious Cast

Heyo peeps!! Today’s Music Monday is going to be a bit different, I’m going to be sharing a song that’s attached to a memory. I was inspired by the “more than a memory” prompt from the Me and Music tag and decided I’m going to kind of do that for every other Music Monday until I run out of memories lol.

Normal Music Mondays are hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today’s song is *drumroll* Leave It All to Shine…which I mean you should know by reading the title but the drumroll was fun to type lol.

I know there’s been a lot of problems behind both of these shows, but who didn’t watch one or the other at some point in their life? I didn’t even have cable as a child (or now) and I some how watched a few episodes of each show. Also the reboot of iCarly, I haven’t been able to watch it, but I know people were excited.

The specific memory I have attached to this song occurred sometime during the summer when I was still in elementary school. My cousins and I were at my grandma’s house and I convinced them to perform this song with me. We grabbed hairbrushes for our microphones, spent a good amount of time learning the lyrics by heart, and then adding a choreography. It was a lot of fun! I remember trying really hard to convince them to do it with me, but I only ended up dragging one of them to do it, my other cousin just held the camera and controlled the music. At the end of the day we had a recording of us and performed it live for our grandma and parents. I wonder if they still remember that lol.


โœจ๐ŸŽค The Lyrics ๐Ÿ“นโœจ

[Verse 1: Miranda, Victoria, Miranda & Jennette]
I know you see
Somehow the world will change for me
And be so wonderful
Here I am once again
Feeling lost but now and then
Live life, breathe air
I know somehow we're gonna get there
And feel so wonderful

[Pre-Chorus: Victoria with Elizabeth, Miranda with Jennette, Nathan & Jerry, Miranda]
When you figure out how
You're lost in the moment, you disappear
It's all for real
I'm tellin' you just how I feel

[Chorus: Victoria with Ariana & Elizabeth, Miranda with Matt & Avan, Victoria with Nathan & Jerry, Victoria & Miranda with Leon, Daniella & Jennette]
You don't have to be afraid to put your dreams in action
You're never gonna fade you'll be the main attraction
Wake up the members of my nation
It's your time to be
Not a fantasy (Not a fantasy)
Just remember me (Just remember me)
When it turns out right (When it turns out right)

[Chorus: Miranda with Nathan, Noah & Jerry, Victoria with Leon, Daniella & Jennette, Miranda with Leon & Ariana, Victoria with Elizabeth, Victoria, Miranda]
'Cause there's no chance unless you take one
And the time to see
Now if you live your imagination (Yeah, yeah)
Tomorrow you'll be everybody's fascination
See the brighter side of every situation
In my victory (In my victory)
Just remember me
(Just remember me)

[Chorus: Victoria, Miranda with Leon & Ariana, Victoria, Miranda, Elizabeth & Jennette, Miranda & Victoria]
When I make it shine
Leave it all to me (Leave it all to me)
Leave it all to me
When I make it shine
Leave it all to me
When you're living your imagination
Leave it all to me
When I make it shine

[Post-Chorus: Miranda with Jennette, Nathan, Noah & Jerry
Leon with Elizabeth, Ariana & Daniella]
Leave it
Make it
Leave it
Make it
Leave it
Make it
Leave it

[Outro: Victoria, Miranda]
When I make it shine
Just leave it all to me

Written By: Dr. Luke,ย Backhouse Mikeย &ย Dan Schneider

Until we meet again…have fun and stay safe!

P.S. I hope it’s obvious but the song isn’t mine, just the memory attached to it.

Fun Friday: Me and Music Tag

Heyo peeps! Happy ๐ŸŸ day!

Today, I decided to do the Me and Music tag. I first saw this tag from Riddhi @ Whispering Stories and thought it looked fun. A thanks to her for leaving a nomination open for anyone to do.

Without further ado let’s begin!!

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

The Rules

  • Link back to the original (Sophie @ Me and Ink) so she can see your answers and listen to the tunes.
  • For every prompt you choose to do, name 1-5 songs (you can use Sophieโ€™s graphics)
  • Have fun and play your music LOUD!

You will notice that I have used Sophie’s graphics, they were just too cute not to.

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

Apologizes in advance for if I repeat songs that I’ve already recommended before…they were probably just too good not to associate the prompt with them.

Cool Down – Kolohe Kai // “We’re living in Hawaii with Aloha and pride, yeah”

He Mele No Lilo – Mark Kealiสปi Hoสปomalu

Bamboo – Kimie Miner // “Oh love it’s true the storms will come but we’ll make it through”

Freckles and Constellations – Dodie // “All those cute conversations” // “I’m star struck, for you” // “Never had a moment that was quite like this”

Hopelessly – Reinaeiry // “I’m a hopeless romantic” // “Great poets are made of
Unrequited love.”

All My Love – SEVENTEEN // “Hello my joy” // “I’ll become your umbrella in the rain”

I don’t know why but I really struggled with this prompt. Maybe I don’t dance around to music as often as I thought I do? Idk…

Super Trouper – ABBA // “Feeling like a number one”

I love ABBA and I can not stress that enough. I also adore all the different recordings of the classic songs from A*Teens and the Mamma Mia cast. Not only must I dance but I must sing along.

The Coast of Galiรงia – Celtic Woman

This song is an instrumental/orchestra piece so there are no lyrics but it’s so fun to twirl around to. I first listened to this song while reading a dancing scene from a fanfic and I fell in love with it. If you read fanfics from the Harry Potter fandom I totally recommend it, it’s called, “What the Room Requires.”

Better When I’m Dancin’ – Meghan Trainor // “Just move those left feet” // “Prove to them you’ve got the moves” // “We knew that you could do it”

Elephant Love Medley – Moulin Rouge

I must admit that I’ve never made it through one sitting of Moulin Rouge. But, this song was on my parent’s wedding video and I absolutely love it.

Don’t Lose Your Head – Six the Musical // “I didn’t really mean it but rumours spiral”

I adore this whole musical, the songs are so fun to sing. This historical inspiration behind it is tragic but it’s still a fun album to listen to.

Good Enough – A Week Away // “Not exactly what the kids these days are calling cool” // “Don’t let them tell you you’re not good enough” // “You just gotta be you, don’t break yourself apart”

I found myself really surprised when I realized how many songs on this soundtrack I actually liked. Normally I’m not very into religious/Christian songs, but this soundtrack was very subtle. My two other favorite songs from this movie were “Let’s Go Make a Memory” and “Best Thing Ever.”

Anybody Have a Map? – Dear Evan Hansen // “Another stumble as I’m reaching for the right thing to say”

I love the entire album but I relate to this song a lot. I know it’s about parenting but just being in high school is confusing. It’d be great to have a map lol.

People I Don’t Like – UPSAHL // “Yeah, I don’t really wanna be here like, ah-ah-ah-ah” // “So let’s pretend we like each other”

This song got me through the majority of my sophomore year group projects. I don’t necessarily love group projects…really I hate them, but sometimes they are just unavoidable. I found peace in this song when I really felt done with my group members.

Awesome God/God Only Knows – A Week Away // “All the memories, they somehow never leave you” // “God only knows how it’s killing you”

We Still (Be With U) – ASTRO // “I’ll protect you, an unchanging confession” // “I will pick you up, don’t be alone”

I adore ASTRO, they’re one of my favorite groups. Normally I would say You & Me is my comfort song from them but since I believe I mentioned it before I decided to pick one of their other songs.

Stay Beautiful – Jamie // “Donโ€™tโ€…let these haters come by” // “You better hold your head high”

There are two versions of this song I like the first version a lot, but the Jamie ver. is also very good.

Halfway Around The World – A*Teens // “Halfway around the world. That won’t stop me from loving you.”

Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride – Mark Kealiสปi Hoสปomalu // “There’s no place I’d rather be, then on my surfboard out at sea”

Let me be clear that I do not know how to surf lol. I also don’t exactly like going to the beach…but this song was on the radio constantly when I was in elementary. My class even did our May day dance to it one year.

Count on Me – Bruno Mars // “You’ll always have my shoulder when you cry”

I used to listen to a LOT of Bruno Mars when my mom and I were in the car. Mostly because we had the album this song came from on CD but we also liked the songs.

What Makes You Beautiful – One Direction // “You’re insecure, don’t know what for”

I was never really a big fan of One Direction, don’t get me wrong their songs are really good, but I wasn’t one of those people with posters of them hanging on my walls. I just remember listening to this song a lot in the car, it was also the song picked for my summer fun’s end of summer dance program.

Into the I-Land – IU // “Let’s do our best, let’s just try”

I love IU’s version but I also really like the Final Version from the I-Land Applicants.

Dear Me – Taeyeon // “I trust myself” // “See how Iโ€™ve endured through the long darkness”

Left & Right – SEVENTEEN // “Keep your eyes wide open and your chin up” // “Letโ€™s go together with no worries”

Kiss Me – Sixpence None The Richer // “Oh, kiss me, beneath the milky twilight” // “Strike up the band and make the fireflies dance”

Leaving on a Jet Plane – John Denvers // “Kiss me and smile for me” // “Hold me like you’ll never let me go”

I like most versions of this song but I’m particularly fond of The Macarons Project cover of it.

Fly Me to the Moon – Frank Sinatra // “Let me play among the stars” // “In other words, hold my hand”

Head Over Heels – The Go-Go’s // “It looked so easy. But you know looks sometimes deceive” // “Looks like the whole world’s out of sync”

I adore older music, and I have so many more favorite songs but I held myself back.

I Hear a Symphony – Cody Fry // “Perfection is so quick to bore”

Remember – WINNER // “Thereโ€™s no good in ending us” // “We carrying nothing but a goring burden” // “So I put โ€œSORRYโ€ ten times for sure”

Us, Again – SEVENTEEN // “Oneโ€…day, weโ€™re gonnaโ€…have a lot of waves” // “We sing together again, until that day”

So, these songs probably won’t make everyone cry but for me I start tearing up every time. It’s probably my fault that I associate the first song with crying because when I first listened to it I was watching a sad(ish) animatic. The other two are just well I guess I’m afraid of good things ending. It’s hard to imagine your favorite band/group/friendships breaking up, and these songs really strike those cords for me. Seventeen also has a song, “Smile Flower,” that made me cry when I first listened to it and read the lyrics too.

7up – Boy in Space // “I promise I will love you even with my broken heart” // “I don’t really mind ’cause I love you” // “And I was writing poetry about you everyday”

Good 4 u – Olivia Rodrigo // “You look happy and healthy, not me” // “You’re doing great out there without me, baby” // “Like a damn sociopath”

Retro Love – BOYHOOD // “Because you are just you without any ‘Why'”

picking flowers – kayden // “What happened to all the dreams that we had?” // “When it was easy to be grateful”

I didn’t really pay much attention to these songs’ lyrics before this…now they seem so sad. But they’re so catchy and will remain on repeat for a while to come.

For some reason this was the last prompt I filled out. It’s not that I don’t have favorite lyrics, it’s just that I like so many songs lyrics (if that’s not obvious from the lyrics I pulled in the previous prompts lol).

Simple – Woozi (from SEVENTEEN) // “Happiness is only a word” // “In this exit-less, maze-like world” // “I hope we can all smile when the night is over”

A Good Song Never Dies – Saint Motel // “The first time it made you cry, the first time you felt alive”

Shop Of Wonders – Reinaeiry // “Am I loved in a photograph?” // “Don’t need money / To spend my time with you” // “You’ll be my song / I’ll be your melody”

dancing in the kitchen – Zachary Knowles // “I just wanna dance with you” // “Let’s get dressed up for no occasion” // “We’ll stay up talking ’til it’s light out”

I’ve decided to skip this prompt because I’ve never really kept up with what songs are on the charts…like I might like a popular song but I won’t know if it’s on the Billboard’s Hot 100.

Come and Get It – Selena Gomez

I must say that this is not my favorite song. It is however very strongly ingrained into my memory after spending a good portion of my summer listening to it. I forget how old I was but my friends at summer fun decided they wanted to dance to this song for the talent show. I was not apart of the routine. However, in order to practice with music they requested to borrow our leader’s phone. I got to be the responsible one, trusted with the phone, and so I was stuck listening to this song pressing pause and play when needed.

Keep Your Head Up – Andy Grammar // “This is just a journey, drop your worries” // “Skeptics mess with the confidence in my eyes” // “Only rainbows after rain”

The entirety of 5th grade wrapped up in one song. My 5th grade teacher had this thing with her classes where we picked a class song, this was our’s. We learned the lyrics, sang along, and played it in the background of our class parties. 5th grade drama seems so silly now. I miss it.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow – Israel “IZ” Kamakawiwoสปole // “Where trouble melts like lemon drops”

This particular memory comes from middle school, and while my time in middle school was full of regret and embarrassment I’ve come to cherish my memories. I forget what grade we were in, 7th or 8th, one of those two. My homeroom/advisory were just hanging out before lunch time, and one of my classmates started playing the song and singing (he always carried around his ukulele). I don’t know what it was, maybe something was in the air lol, but everyone else joined along with him. We weren’t all the best singers but it was good fun and I’ll look back on that moment fondly. I used to find my homeroom annoying at best, but now I miss them. They were a constant that high school no longer offers.

Paper Rings – Taylor Swift // “I like shiny things, but I’d marry you with paper rings”

Can I Have This Dance – High School Musical // “Now won’t you promise me
that you’ll never forget.”
// “Don’t be afraid, afraid to fall.
You know I’ll catch you through it all.”

Honestly I can’t help but sing to any and all High School Musical songs. ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ˜‚

Pretty U – SEVENTEEN // “When I see you, itโ€™s breathtaking” // “I want to pick and gather all
the pretty words for you”
// “I am counting flower petals all day long”

Monster – Shawn Mendes & Justin Bieber // “I was fifteen when the world put me on a pedestal” // “I came in with good intentions, then I let it go”

Cabinet Man – Lemon Demon // “You can’t win me, I can’t be beat” // “I only want to have fun”

I never really paid attention to the lyrics in this song…or really any Lemon Demon song, they were just there to drown out my thoughts. But dang these lyrics are really good.

Dead Girl Walking (Reprise) – Heathers the Musical // “It’s one more dance and then farewell” // “I wish grown-ups understood!”

I must say I don’t normally get attached to full albums so I struggled with this prompt, I’m more of a single song obsession girl lol.

Semicolon – SEVENTEEN // “It’s okay to think about it more” // “This feeling of wanting to know more” // “My love only amounts to this”

I love all of SEVENTEEN’s albums, I found it really hard to pick just one. Some of my favorites from this album are, “Do Ri Me,” “AH! Love,” and “All My Love.” I also really love their Love & Letter Repackage album.

Woodland – The Paper Kites // “We’re all just searching for something” // “And we’ll hate what we’ve lost but we’ll love what we find” // “Success is a song of the heart, not a song of your head”

This was the first album I’m ever listened to from The Paper Kites, but I absolutely love it. I often listen to it while doing homework.

Snap Shoot – SEVENTEEN // “Our laughter in the picture is all” // “”Snap shoot, I want to capture that smile”

Seventeen never fails to make me smile. I love the candidness of this music video and the fact that it was directed by Mingyu just made it so much more special.

All Night – ASTRO // “So ridiculous, here I am waiting for your call tonight” // “Gonna stay up all night telling you what I couldnโ€™t before” // “Iโ€™ll never get tired of your voice”

This music video is just everything. I think it was Astro’s first dip into a more elegant style and it’s just so etherial, the flowers, the outfits. It was just so different from everything I knew them to usually be and it was amazing. Don’t get me wrong, I love their more boyish and playful music videos, but this one is just on a different level.

The Way You Felt: The Story – Alec Benjamin // “Oh I fell for your charm I was so infatuated” // “Is your heart just preconditioned for brevity”

This was such an interesting music video to watch. The way he included the story with subtitles just made it so much more personal.

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

๐ŸŽง Spotify Playlist ๐ŸŽถ

Unfortunately “Freckles and Constellations” isn’t on Spotify but here’s the Youtube link! As I was adding the songs I also realized “Us, Again” isn’t either so here’s the link. I added on Downpour from I.O.I and Smile Flower in it’s place on the playlist.

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

I had loads of fun doing this tag, though it did take me what felt like forever to find songs, and I was definitely using it to procrastinate on some very important homework :T

If you didn’t notice, I was heavily inspired by the colored text in Sophie’s post, and so I thought I’d try it out. The colors were a lot of fun to incorporate, and it was a new concept to me (before this I didn’t know how to make certain lines different colors). I probably won’t use colored text very often after this but I want to try use it sometimes!

I hope you guys had fun reading this post, maybe you even learned something about me from these songs. I don’t really have anyone to nominate…so I’ll just leave it open for anyone to do!

Until we meet again….have a wonderful weekend & ๐ŸŸ day, don’t procrastinate, and stay safe!

Monday Music: _inside – JUNNY(์ฃผ๋‹ˆ)

Heyo peeps! I’d like to say Happy Monday, but I don’t view Mondays very positively :/ But I hope you guys are having a great Monday :))

Anyway, you know the drill, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today, I’d like to share _inside by JUNNY(์ฃผ๋‹ˆ). It’s a fairly new favorite of mine but I think that lyrics are pretty relatable. I found this song through the videos youtube has recommended to me. I first listened and feel in love with this song through JUNNY’s live vocals.

However, I’ve recently watched the animated music video and I thought it was pretty cool too. It has a scene from one of my favorite dramas, “Run On.” I totally recommend it lol, it also has a song from JUNNY playing in the background.

English Translation

Get it from the back
I know you like it like that

A missed call while I was asleep
With tired eyes, I check who itโ€™s from
Not a single call that Iโ€™m happy to see
There's nothing really good for me
Maybe I'll go back to sleep

There are certain days
Oh no Once or twice
We have those days where we donโ€™t wanna do a single thing
I realized today's the day
My very own ocean 
Where no one can find me

Cuz Imma stay inside
Itโ€™s my own paradise
Diving into my bedsheets
Itโ€™s too dangerous outside these walls
A calming mood light rather than the burning sunlight
My own ceiling shines brighter than the blue sky
(La di dat da da da da)

Got my k-dramas on all day
Think Iโ€™m falling for Shin Sae Kyeong (oh no)
I think Iโ€™m running on again
oops that's my own privacy
Im tryna set up the mood
Bring up my memo
And begin to write another predictable love song
Nothin better than that
Iโ€™m straight girl, Iโ€™m just statin the facts, yeah

There are certain days
oh no Once or twice
We have those days where we donโ€™t wanna do a single thing
I realized today's the day
My very own ocean 
Where no one can find me

Cuz Imma stay inside
Itโ€™s my own paradise
Diving into my bedsheets
Itโ€™s too dangerous outside these walls
A calming mood light rather than the burning sunlight
My own ceiling shines brighter than the blue sky
(La di dat da da da da
As my screen turns off and I see the reflection of myself in the black screen,

I realize youโ€™re the one Iโ€™m missing
In the story of my movie, weโ€™re one
Something isnโ€™t right
Girl, I think I need you by my side

so come and stay inside
To our paradise
Diving into my bedsheets
Its too dangerous outside these walls
A calming mood light rather than the burning sun light
My own ceiling shines brighter than the blue sky
(La di dat da da da da)

Imma stay inside
My own paradise
And we gon be alright yeah
(La da da da da da)
Imma stay inside
My own paradise
And we gonโ€™ stay inside today, yeah

Fun Friday: GIF-Y love tag

Hi! Happy Friday, the end of another week…my actual first week of summer without summer school, though I still have AP summer work :/

Anyway, today I’ve decided to do the GIF-Y love tag. I first saw this tag on Annie’s blog at evening tea musings and I thought it looked like a lot of fun (considering I use GIFs a LOT when I text lol)! Annie used different prompts from the original ones but I’m going to do a few of the original prompts, a couple of Annie’s, and some I changed to match my use of GIFs.

Rules

  • Mention the creators Tiction and Nehal.
  • Thank the person who tagged you and leave a link to their blog.
  • Use the tag #gif-y-love and choose a GIF you love for each of the provided prompts.
  • Tag at least 5 people.

โœจ The GIFs โœจ

Bored

Angry

The Pillow is my weapon of choice lol

Fangirling

Being Judgemental

Stu(dying)

Frustrated

Annoyed

There is a difference between annoyed and angry pillow throwing, one is done with a forced smile.

Hugs

Comforting

Bonus:

Crying

Nominees

I’m just going to keep the nominations open for anyone to do…

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

I had loads of fun with this tag! I actually ended up changing quite a few of the prompts to match what I mostly use GIFs for but I still used a couple of the original prompts. I encourage you to do this tag if you haven’t already!!

Until we meet again…

Music Monday: Like 1999 – Valley

HEYO PEEPS! I have energy today lol, Monday has not drained me yet. This is the first week where I have no summer school but it is also one week closer to going back to school…not a fun thought.

Anyway, Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. All you have to do is share one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

This week, I decided to share “Like 1999” from Valley. I really like all of Valley’s songs, they’re all bops, but I think this one kind of connected to the poem I’m posting this week. I hope you guys enjoy it!

๐ŸŽธโœจ Like 1999 – Valley โœจ๐Ÿ“น

[Verse 1]
Woke up, it's 2021
I wanna get texts, but I never wanna text back
Fuck man, I'm 2020 done
Another paycheck and I blew it, but I'm still sad

[Pre-Chorus]
We talk all of the time
But it still feels like I'm just a voice on the line, so

[Chorus]
If you wanna come over, watch Friends and then get high
Use my phone as a coaster, we'll travel back in time
Lights on the ceiling, we're more than a feeling
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999

[Verse 2]
Woke up, had a dream about you
We were parked in a Pontiac, making out, no internet
Ten things I hate about you, honestly nothing

[Pre-Chorus]
We talk all of the time and I love it
So what are you doing tonight?

[Chorus]
If you wanna come over, watch Friends and then get high
Use my phone as a coaster, we'll travel back in time
Lights on the ceiling, we're more than a feeling
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999-9-9-9 (One sec')

[Bridge]
Do you mind if I'm nostalgic? Let's go back before 2000
Back before our love was so distracted
I wish that Y2K had happened, we would stay forever classic
You and I would both be trapped in, in 1999

[Pre-Chorus]
We talk all of the time and I love it
So what are you doing tonight?

[Chorus]
If you wanna come over, watch Friends and then get high
Use my phone as a coaster, we'll travel back in time
Lights on the ceiling, we're more than a feeling
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999
If you wanna come over, act like it's 1999

Until we meet again…have fun but stay safe!

Fun Friday: Youtube Playlists I’ve Enjoyed ๐ŸŽถ

Heyo peeps! Welcoming to another Fun Friday, Happy ๐ŸŸ day! I really want french fries lol. Anyway, today I’ve decided to share some youtube playlists that I love. I really like looking for new music and playlists that match my feelings at different moments in time. Themed playlists are lovely things that I admire the creators for, I’d love to be able to match songs to feelings as well as they do. I’ve categorized the playlists into different themes and then further into to different events. I hope you enjoy them or find a new favorite song

โœจThe Playlistsโœจ


๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ Dance Dance ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿฝ

Dancing ๐Ÿ•บ๐Ÿฝ

For the times you just feel like jumping on your bed or flailing (’cause I don’t dance I just flail my arms around lol) around the room.

Twirling ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ

Some may say that “twirling” is the same as dancing or flailing around, but I beg to differ. Twirling is done in a long preferably poofy skirt and moderate heels or no shoes at all in the middle of the night, with or without a partner.


โœจ W/ or W/o Friends, Chilling โœจ

Hanging Out ๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ“น

Songs to sing to goofily and laugh or just play in the background living that main character life.

Late Nights ๐ŸŒƒ

Lying in the dark at a sleepover talking about nothing and everything at once. Dreams, fears, and feelings. Late nights are for secrets and giggling.

Doing Nothing ๐ŸŒง

Staring at the ceiling just breathing in life. There’s nothing to do and productivity is a thing of the past. Cold tiles, wooden floors, or carpet, it doesn’t matter. C’est la vie.


๐ŸŽป Academics โœ๏ธ

Trying to Study While the Sun is Still Up ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ““๐Ÿ“–๐ŸŒ…

Trying to be a productive, A+ student who doesn’t stay up ’til the crack of dawn. Rather we wake up at dawn and do our homework at a reasonable time, after school while the sun is still shining and the world is awake. The ideal study schedule where a decent amount of sleep is the norm.

Late Night Studying ๐Ÿ“๐Ÿ““๐Ÿ“–๐ŸŒƒ

When you’ve given up on being a student who studies when the sun is still up. Procrastination has caught you in it’s snares, now it’s the middle of the night and your final project is due in the morning. Or maybe a burst of creativity has enthralled you and you must follow it. Either way the world is sleeping, the stars are bright, and sounds are quiet.

Drowning Out Thoughts ๐Ÿ”Š๐ŸŽง

When all seems to be falling apart, the paper is blank and your thoughts seem too loud. Nothing is working and all hope seems lost. Sometimes you just need that silence that comes from blasting music.


โœจ Other โœจ

Playlist I really wanted to recommend ๐Ÿ’–

I’ve listened to this playlist for everything above. Dancing, vibing, studying, and drowning my thoughts, a playlist for all and any occasions.

I hope you enjoyed!

Until we meet again…have all my love and listen to some good music! โค

~hiddengirl75

P.S. I hope it’s obvious but none of these playlists or songs are mine, I just wanted to share them with you guys.

Music Monday: Retro Love – BOYHOOD

Heyo peeps!! Welcome back to the second Music Monday on my blog! >_<

Music Monday is hosted by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s basically sharing one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today, I’m going to share Retro Love by BOYHOOD. It’s a k-pop/k-indie song that I’ve recently been in love with. It has a very retro vibe, the music video is also really cute. I hope you enjoy it!

โœจ Retro Love – BOYHOOD โœจ ๐Ÿ“น

English Translation

Just like that, just like that
The day before yesterday, you looked at me just like that
Making me lonely, lonely
Because you are just you without any 'Why'
 
I must have been a little tipsy last night
I'm sorry no matter what you say
Even though the sky is blue
I have to go take a walk alone
 
It seems like you only see me as a friend
Live however you want to live
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Since it's all over, baby, come take a look
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
It's probably still a cold winter outside
Are you okay?
 
It's probably still a cold winter
 
A blue, a blue
A new blue pretentious look of yours
You make me, you make me
Confused again
I've got no clue, just beat everything up
 
I got a nervous
I'll Retro Love you
Even though the sky is black
I feel like I have to sleep alone
 
Even in dreams you and I are still only friends
Live however you want to live
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Since it's all over, baby, come take a look
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
It's probably still a cold winter outside
Are you okay?
 
It's probably still a cold winter
 
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Since it's all over, baby, come take a look
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
Rock and Rock and Roll baby
It's probably still a cold winter outside
Are you okay?
 
It's probably still a cold winter.

Fun Friday: Two Podcasts I Love!

Heyo peeps!! Is it odd to see me posting three times in a week? It was kind of weird for me but let’s both get used to it because I hope to establish this as my weekly posting schedule. One of my goals for this year is to post more and that’s what I intend to do! So without further ado let me introduce you guys to Fun Friday, my Friday post theme.

Along with Music Monday and my Wednesday poetry posts, I hope to keep up Fun Friday. When I was in middle school, my advisory (homeroom) held Fun Fridays where we would play games or do something fun. Rather than playing games I have decided to dedicate Fridays to posts that are more personal to me (like my poems aren’t already pieces of my heart and brain lol). These posts will range from things I love, my fears, or just fun discussions.

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

Today, for my first Fun Friday post I decided to begin with something light and easy, podcasts! I’ve recently gotten really into podcasts. I used to think that I wouldn’t have the attention span to pay attention to a 30 minute podcast with no visuals but I’ve found that they are great to listen to while getting ready in the morning or while doing chores.

Two podcasts that I’ve found myself listening to often are “SciShow Tangents” and “I Love It!” I haven’t caught up to the most recent episodes yet but they are both really interesting!

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

SciShow Tangents

“SciShow Tangents” is a fun way to learn intriguing science facts and is hosted by Hank Green, Ceri Riley, Stefan Chin, and Sam Schultz. They amaze and educate through a series of different friendly competitions based around a theme. There’s quick talking, tangents, and tons of odd facts.

I have to admit I at first only looked at it because Hank Green was one of the hosts but I quickly became intrigued by the odd themes and facts. I now hope to be able to spout out random facts and get some confused looks. Heh, don’t mind me just trying to start conversations. ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ˜‚

Can be found @

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

I Love It!

“I Love It!” is hosted by Matthew Gaydos and it invites people to talk about the things they love. The topics range from the Scripps National Spelling Bee (that’s the first episode) to Star Wars.

I really love this podcast because I enjoy listening to people talk about what they love. It really inspires me; many of the interests I have is because someone expressed such a strong passion for it that it hooked my attention too. I haven’t pursued very many of the interests for prolonged periods of time but it’s always interesting to hear about the different subjects that people can talk about for hours.

Can be found @

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

While both can be found on different websites, I listen to them on Spotify. If you end up looking into on of them or both, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. >~<

Until we meet again…comment below what your favorite podcast is and enjoy some time catching up or re-listening to it.

Music Monday: Happy World Music Day!

Heyo peeps!! Happy World Music Day or Fรชte de la Musique!! Also welcome to my first Music Monday post! Wow, two things in one post, how exciting lol.

So…let’s start with what Music Monday is. Music Monday was started by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek. It’s basically sharing one of your favorite song and it’s lyrics every Monday, and it’s open to anyone to do!

Today’s Music Monday is a bit special though as it is also World Music Day, originally known as Fรชte de la Musique. It takes place every June 21st and began in France, but has now spread across the world! It encourages people to share their favorite music and play music in public places.

I was inspired and also educated by Pavithra’s post for it, before today I had no idea there was a world music day. It’s kind of funny though, my timezone is a bit behind a lot of other people’s so as I’m writing this it isn’t June 21st yet and when I post this on my June 21st it might be over for a lot of people. Anyway, before I got slightly off track, I was saying this post was a special Music Monday, that’s because I’m sharing a whole playlist and not just one song!

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

โœจ My Playlist โœจ

English:

  • At My Worst – Pink Sweat$
  • Hopelessly – Reinaeiry
  • Grace Kelly – MIKA

Kpop:

  • Wish for You – Kang In Soo and Lee Sang
  • Never Loved This Way Before – CHEEZE
    • This song is used in one of my favorite webtoons, Odd Girl Out (it’s so cute, wholesome, and relatable)
  • After School – Weekly

French:

  • On Ne Vit Qu’Une Fois – Sidoine
  • The Wall Between Us (Ce mur qui nous sรฉpare) – Lou & Lenni-Kim
  • Prรจs des รฉtoiles – Mickaรซl Pouvin Ft. Jรฉrรดme Clerville

Most of these songs are from my On Repeat playlist on Spotify! I update it quite frequently, feel free to check it out.

~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~โ˜†~

I often find my favorite songs by just letting Spotify play or by listening to youtube playlists that people make. Finding songs is one of my favorite past times ^-^

Recently though I’ve been play the Wish You’s OSTs on repeat. I recently watched the drama, it’s listed as a movie though on Netflix I believe. It was really good, very wholesome and I loved the music. Highly recommend watching it or listening to the songs!

Until we meet again…share your favorite songs with someone and dance around, it’s fun I promise!

Happy World Music Day! ๐ŸŽถ
