So I love Pandora... as with any music enthusiast it's gotta be your top choice while your cooking or in the car. I think it's one of those amazing inventions like Instagram! Every now and then, I catch myself "loving" on an album and again, hitting in on repeat for days or even weeks.
Right now, it's Kelly Clarkson. She is one of those artists, where I think you cannot go wrong if you buy her whole album. But it did take me a while to purchase the whole album. Thanks to Pandora, I heard a few tracks that are not on the radio and said, "I need this album!"
Kelly will always make me dig deep to find my alter-ego, "The Singer, The Dancer, The Performer.. (in shining lights) Ro-na-lyn" But as with each new season of American Idol, I can hear Randy Jackson shaking his head, and saying, "That would be a "no". So, I'll just stick to the wife, mom of three, photographer route.
But when you're in the mood to sing it out... to "feel" your music, her latest album will do exactly that.
"Stronger" - my first single purchase from her album. Still brings me back to running through those tough hills in AK.
"Dark Side" - was my 2nd purchase (but didn't buy her album just yet).
"And remind me who I really am... Please remind me who I really am.."
The chorus itself wasn't the seller for me, it was just those 2 lines. For a while.. "lost" was a word that best described me. Living in a dark corner of my life, things all around me seemed irretrievable. I was trying to make sense of things, that weren't meant to make any at all. But through darkness, hubby constantly reminded me who I really am.
"Don't Be A Girl About It" & "Einstein" - just some fun songs that make me chuckle.
I didn't get it the first time
Don't think I've been so blind
And I may not be Einstein but I know
Dumb plus dumb equals you
Along with Kelly, you'll find my secret stash of Taylor Swift. How could you not sing along to "I Knew You Were Trouble"... (trouble, trouble, trouble..)
And of course, Pink. Her latest "Try" is on repeat.
Where there is desire
There is gonna be a flame
Where there is a flame
Someone's bound to get burned
But just because it burns
Doesn't mean you're gonna die
You've gotta get up and try, and try, and try
That song was played in one of the "Biggest Loser" episodes and it's my go to song, when I'm feeling tired and worn out during a run.
