This week for Music Mondays, I picked Hall of Fame by The Script. I love this song because it reminds me that I can be and do anything I set myself out to do. It also reminds me that I was born with greatest. born to shine. It is such an uplifting and motivational song.
“When your, standing in the hall of fame And the world’s gonna know your name ‘Cause you burn with the brightest flame And the world’s gonna know your name And you’ll be on the walls of the hall of fame”
Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January of 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together.
The rules are simple: Each Tuesday, Jana assigns a new topic. Create your own Top Ten list that fits that topic – putting your unique spin on it if you want.Everyone is welcome to join but please link back to The Artsy Reader Girl in your own Top Ten Tuesday post.
This week’s topic is Non-Bookish Hobbies. This post is to help us get to know each other. The list of hobbies should not be books or reading related.
Watching movies and TV shows
Listening to music
Playing games on my phone
Hanging out with family and friends
Making scrapbooks, and other art projects (painting, colouring, etc.)
Studying astrology and Tarot cards
I would love to read all about your hobbies in the comments. 🙂
Hey, it’s another edition of Music Mondays. What I love about this song is that it talks about how that even though you may not have everything you have always wanted, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a good life. It’s all about rising up above it, and going after the things you want in life. It encourages us to leave the bad things in our past, and not let the bad times bring us down. Instead we should focus on the good things in our life.
“We put the good in the good in the good life (The good life) We put the good in the good in the good life (I said the good life) We put the bad in the past, now we alright (We alright)”
-G-Eazy ft. Kehlani, Good Life
*Trigger Warning* Mentions drinking alcohol in the song
I really like this song and its reminder of that we shouldn’t take life too seriously. I enjoy listening to Taylor Swift. I feel like she has good music, and good messages.
This song she is encouraging us to not care nor focus on what our “haters” are saying about us. We should learn to not care about what people say about us, especially when they are talking bad about us.
“‘Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate Baby, I’m just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake I shake it off, I shake it off”
Today’s song of the week is #ThatPower by Will.i.am and Justin Bieber. It used to be one of my favourite songs. It samples lyrics from electronic duo Daft Punk‘s Better, Faster, Stronger.
To me, this song is about keeping your motivation and always moving forward. And that no what happens, you can achieve your goals. And not caring about what your haters may say or think about you in the process.
“I stay on that hustle, I flex that little muscle Hate to bust your bubble I’m on that other level I’ma take it higher and high and high and higher I stay in fly attire Keeping burning like that fire”
Tom Parker of the band, The Wanted, has disclosed that he has been diagnosed with a terminal brain tumour. I am absolutely devastated for him and his family. I love The Wanted. For those who may not know, but they are a British-Irish boy band.
I feel really sad for Tom Parker and his family since he is only 32 years old. His wife is pregnant with their second child.
I remember that my best friend and I used to listen to The Wanted and have a mini dance party listening to them. It was a lot of fun. But to summarize things, life got complicated and we ended up going in different directions without one another. We do on the occasion still keep in touch. Although not as much as we used to, and that’s okay. I still feel very blessed to be friends with this amazing person. We live in different cities, and things are different now, but I hope that our paths can cross again, soon. May this song help everyone realize that life is too short, to be anything but happy. I hope this song encourages us to take chances, like go to talk to that friend you have been meaning to message, quit that job, and try something new. Life is too short to be ordinary, go out there, and be extraordinary!
I will always love this song. I feel for Tom Parker and his family. I’ll keep him my thoughts and hope that he is strong enough to accomplish all that he wishes to. This song will remind me to not take life so seriously, but to enjoy everything and everyone. Never take anything or anyone for granted, because you never know when you will see someone again. All we ever have is this present moment. Another thing that this song teaches me is that everyone can enter your life, and can only stay there for a season. And when they leave, your universe is never the same again. Learn to enjoy the little things in life.
“The sun goes down The stars come out And all that counts Is here and now My universe will never be the same I’m glad you came”
It’s another addition of Music Monday! In case you didn’t know that I’m a huge fan of Avril Lavigne.
This song is about how all of our essential workers are working towards combating Covid-19. I remember she was asking for people to submit their warriors for her video. It is a really inspiring song and video.
I appreciate everyone who is working hard through all of this.
“‘Cause we are warriors, we’ll fight for our lives Like soldiers all through the night And we won’t give up, we will survive, we are warriors And we’re stronger, that’s why we’re alive We will conquer, time after time We’ll never falter, we will survive, we are warriors”
Even on my worst days, I love this song because it reminds me to always make the best out of every situation. It reminds me that I can have a good life, if I allow myself to remain positive about things.
“Oh, this has gotta be the good life This has gotta be the good life This could really be a good life, good life Say oh, got this feeling that you can’t fight Like this city is on fire tonight This could really be a good life A good, good life”
