Because it’s Wednesday & We All Need Hump Day Inspiration

YouTube Preview Image

This morning as I was driving into work this song by Baz Luhrmann came on the radio. I haven’t heard it since high school and it instantly brought a smile to my tired face.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen, here’s a little background: In 1997, columnist Mary Schmich wrote an essay for the Chicago Tribune giving much-needed life advice to youths. The advice from this famous essay serve as the lyrics to Luhrmann’s song.

Take an extra five minutes out of your day to listen to this song. It’s some of the best life advice I’ve ever heard. Of course, never take anything for granted. I hope this gets you through the rest of your workweek.

Happy Hump Day, everyone!

A Recent Obsession – Icona Pop

Ever since I saw the Girls episode “Bad Friend” in which Hannah will do anything to get interesting material for her new freelance job, I was knew this song would be stuck in my head for a while. Take a listen below to “I Love It” by Icona Pop, a Swedish synthpop duo.

For those of you who watch Girls, you know exactly what scene I’m referring to, and if you don’t watch Girls, well, you should. Hannah and Elijah go crazy at a rave at nightclub Greenhouse where they end up dancing and screaming to the song “I Love It.” This song is just so much fun and I think it’s definitely going to make its mark.

Brittany McDonald’s “Notice Me” Sends a Powerful Message to All

Songwriter

Growing up in Orange County, Brittany McDonald knew she had a passion for music before she could even talk. Taking inspiration from Gwen Stefani’s confidence and stance on societal views of women, Brittany realized her true mission was to change the way people think through her songs.

Graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in psychology, Brittany packed her bags and headed to Nashville, TN. Her first few songs gained a lot of attention from music industry big shots calling her music too opinionated and edgy to fit in with other country music produced by females. On that note, moving back to Southern California, Brittany poured her soul into her newest single Notice Me.

Notice Me grabbed the attention of Ariana Huffington, who personally gave Brittany her own blog on the Huffington Post. We sat down with Brittany to ask her questions as to what motivated her to write a song with such a powerful message, especially for the society we live in today. (more…)
