WHO NEEDS BATMAN WHEN I HAVE ROBYN

Every once in a while my mind is blown by some amazing artist. Then I obsess with that artist’s music for a week or so and then move on. I’ve been obsessing with a particular one now for two weeks. This is not healthy.

Back in the 90s Robyn was known for her sweet pop Show Me Love which every teener from that era seemed to enjoy as background music in his/her head whilst looking at his/her crush. I know I did…and I wasn’t even a teener yet back then. Yes, I was born maharot.

Now her reinvention to this electro-techno-pop diva is simply astounding. I love her. I adore her. I worship the paint-stricken walls where she did her cobrastyle (whatever that is…), the dark corners where she danced alone, the weird boxes where she bopped her head and booty, and the animated geometric shapes that beat with her heart. I want to hang with her. I’m even beginning to have my very own criminal intents with her.

The reason why I love her so much besides her groovy videos? Her lyrics are the emo-est in the world, but her beats are the most heart-pounding. Every song crushes and then resurrects your heart with every word and every beat over and over again. Then you begin to understand why she has platinum blonde hair…its because she is simply amazing.

So friends if ever you see me one of these days with a platinum blonde bob do, please don’t be surprised. A little Robyn told me to do it.

In the meantime, Imma be doing my own style ala bom-diddi-bom di-dang di-dang diggi-diggi.

Follow the forever alone dance steps:

MUSIC MENAGE A TROIS

I am a fan of good music.

And by GOOD I mean something that will blow my mind and make me die.

I wasn’t blessed with any musical talent whatsoever. I can’t play any musical instrument (yes, not even the triangle), I can’t sing to save my life (I don’t even try to sing in the shower for fear of gulping water), and I sucked at reading notes back in school. But I know music that I like when I hear it.

Blame Glee for my current fixation on acapella (a cappella, a capella, whatever) numbers, and the amazing Internet speed for Youtube discoveries. I have been mesmerized by these two Youtube sensations for some time now, but their recent numbers were so AMAZING I just have to share them by all means possible (FB, Twitter and word of mouth are all checked…)

Meet Mike Tompkins with his plethora of vocal sounds including…synths…yes people, synths. (I first heard him through his Teenage Dream vid)

And Sam Tsui who’s latest vid is a menage a trois of musical mash up genius, I would do anything to meet him and hear him sing live. (First heard him doing Glee numbers)

If there are talented people who deserve to have music careers, these two definitely deserve to be signed up. What I would give to have a voice box as great as theirs…
