Santa Baby – Eartha Kitt

It’s Friday! Working from home today, but basically my Christmas holiday starts in a couple of hours! To celebrate that, let’s get at least one Christmas song in. I’m not a fan of Christmas songs, in fact, I can hardly stand 98% of them. But this one piece is my all time favorite, the original ‘Santa Baby’ by Eartha Kitt. That lady got some sultry voice. I got an album of hers and it’s one of my favorite albums. They just don’t make music like that anymore. So enjoy, get into some Christmas spirit. I for one can’t wait for the year 2018 to begin. I have lots of big plans and goals and one of them is be very active on this little blog. I’ve been shit at updating this autumn, I know, but that’s all about to change! For now, happy Friday! 🙂

She Used To Be Mine – Sara Bareilles

Friday finally, after a tiring week. I was just tired, physically and mentally. But I kinda promised myself not to hide from my own feelings, whether they be good or bad, so I turned to my pile of Sara Bareilles CDs. Her music can be intense, her best songs are those in which you can find yourself. “She Used To Be Mine” is one of them. I remember when I first heard it, I cried like a baby because she was singing about me. First time I heard the song, I resonated with the following part of the lyrics the most:

She’s imperfect, but she tries
She is good, but she lies
She is hard on herself
She is broken and won’t ask for help
She is messy, but she’s kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie
She is gone, but she used to be mine

But then when I listened to it today again, I heard the latter part of the song louder:

Who’ll be reckless, just enough
Who’ll get hurt, but who learns how to toughen up
When she’s bruised and gets used by a man who can’t love
And then she’ll get stuck
And be scared of the life that’s inside her
Growing stronger each day ’til it finally reminds her
To fight just a little, to bring back the fire in her eyes
That’s been gone, but used to be mine

I never believed that time heals, it only dulls the pain by the day. Painful memories never go away, you just have to make new ones, good ones, happy ones, to pile on top. Happy Friday.

Look What You Made Me Do – Taylor Swift

You know it! Of course I gotta support Tay-Tay. To be honest, I’m really enjoying this girl on girl drama between Katy Perry and TSwift. While I really used to like Katy, her ‘Swish Swish’ is really lazy. But since her releasing that, I’ve been holding my breath for TSwift’s punch back, cos come on, of course Tay-Tay is going to retaliate. I know I know, girls gotta support girls etc etc. But fighting by making music, that’s not that bad as a ‘weapon’, right? Especially, with a song this fun. It’s textbook Taylor Swift, which got a way to wriggle inside your head and make you like it the more you listen. Tay-Tay definitely wins this round. Happy Friday peeps.
