Tagged - Seven Songs for Spring

I was tagged by Sharon Rose and Nay'chelle to list the seven songs I'm really feeling right now.

The rules:
“List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.”

Ok, so here are my song choices for Spring/Summer:

Do It by Nelly Furtado (2008)
I miss the old Nelly from her "I'm like a Bird" days and I'm starting to tire of Timbaland's generic pop beats, but I really like this song. It's a cool, fun song and Nelly's voice sounds really good here .

I Know by Jay-Z ft. Pharrell (2008)
Great hip-hop song, the Neptunes really did an excellent job on the production. I love the song and I also really love the video starring Ms. Zoe Kravitz.

Inside and Out by Feist (2005)
Fantastic remake of the original Bee Gees 1979 hit 'Love you inside and out'. Feist has smooth and beautiful vocals that suits this song perfectly.

Wow by Kylie Minogue (2008)
I've been a fan of Kylie Minogue's music since her album 'Fever' in 2001 and this song is no different. Her songs always make me want to get up and dance (or sit and sing really loudly)!

American Boy by Estelle ft. Kanye West (2008)
Fabulously funky song to sing and dance along to. Estelle is a fantastic singer and Kanye is as cool as ever on this track.

Les Fleurs by 4Hero featuring Carina Andersson (2001)
I first heard this song on a Bailey's commercial called “Zero Gravity Bar” back in 2004 and I just couldn't get it out of my head. It was originally done by Minnie Riperton in 1971 and 4Hero did the cover in 2001. This is a really beautiful and uplifting song, perfect for any season!

Hide Away by Tessanne Chin (?)
This is one of the best reggae/rock fusions I've ever heard and the singer's voice is so beautiful and powerful!

I'm now going to tag Be Stylin', I <333>, The Ongoing Project, The Wandering Alchemist, Searching the Inner Me..., Closet Bug, Meet the Freak.

Obviously there are no obligations to do this tag if you've done it before or you just don't want to :)

Great choices you've made :)
I really feel like listen to these songs all summer.
I also miss the old Nelly Furtado (she's Portuguese, you know).
Thank you so much darling for thinking of me, I'll do it asap.

Well, since my post (The one after yiqin) it's a bit confused I would place here my answers to you:

1-I love your posts, I admire all the work you put in them so they can be helpful and enlightening. I also really like your comments, you leave the loveliest words and as well the fact you like vivid colours ;)
2-Bearded fig tree ;) That inspired the name the island’s Portuguese christening of Los Barbados.
3-All the effort you put in all your posts and how direct you are when you comment on other peoples blogs,
4-The funny picture of the girl with chocolate cake in your 100th post ;) and the post with which I felt very touched, when you posted my picture.
5-Do you speak Bajan? It’s very difficult?
6-Your picture in the post about pops of colour. You look so happy and pretty, with your great smile and the splash of colour!!!!

Diana said...

Hi, thanks for thinking of me, I love your blog, I might have told you that already, but I love it. I need to post pics of myself, but I haven't I don't really have anyone that will take them for me. Anyway, the seven songs I'm listening to right now are:
1. Coldplay "Viva La Vida," I really like the song because it's very spiritual.
2. Brass Menazeri "Opa Cupa," because it sounds like big bands and The Indigo Belly Dance has very beautiful choreography for this song.
3. Daddy Yankee "Pose," well I just love him.
4. Usher "Love In This Club," he is a great entertainer and I'm a huge fan.
5. Mana "Si No Te Hubieras Ido," I love their music I've been a fan for years.
6. Rebelde Anything from them.
7. Richie Valens "Oh Donna," I love his music, huge fan.

Laurel said...

Kylie = uhhhmazing. I love her. What a great post of songs, you have great taste and have definitely found a few new things to check out!

Gotta love being tall, but man - clothing is a pain, right!? UGH. We're both picky, too, so it makes it tougher.

Thanks for sticking with me through this, Danz-y baby! Can't wait to see what happens!!


Nay'Chelle said...

Great fresh music! I just got the American Gangster album and I love that song.

Blonde hair, Blue jeans said...

Danz said...

Thanks everyone for your comments :D

I agree Ida, these tags are fun and really informative, I learn so much about my fellow bloggers through these!

No problem Sharon!

I know Cammila! Tessanne is extremely talented!

Thanks so much diana!! I wish I had someone to take pics for me too :( thanks for doing the tag, I love Coldplay and Usher! Cool choices :)

Haha fashion herald, I'll send it over right away!

Thanks Laurel luv :) Kylie is awesome! Yeah it is hard to find clothes that fit and suit my taste, especially here in Barbados! The stores hardly have anything I like, a lot of my best clothing items I either ordered or thrifted! You're welcome sweetie, I 'm excited for you too!

hey nay'chelle, when I first heard that song, I was playing it over and over! It's addictive, just like the lyrics say.

you're welcome and thanks fashion chalet!

Times of Glory said...

The selection is gorgeous! I love the song tracks! How cool! I love DO IT. Her voice is great! Danz, I'm like you... miss "I'm like a bird" days... She had that innocently beautiful feelings...

enc said...

I can learn a lot from these music choices.

Diana said...

Hi Danz

I don't think I followed the tag correctly sorry, I'm still trying to figure out blogger : (


lucy said...

Love your music selection. I'm going to revisit this post and listen to every song!!

I too love these tags. Reading other peoples blogs in general is a great source of inspiration. How often do we ever really get to know someone's musical likes, their thoughts on fashions, or their relation to the world. Even reading friends blogs, i feel i get to know them in a way i otherwise never would.
