My daughters have been home (on and off) for the past 4 weeks and that means 2 things:
- There's always chart music playing somewhere in the house.
- I have caught up on all the latest tracks I may have missed during the previous 3 months.
Here are the latest 3 tracks:
Pitbull - Timber ft. Ke$ha - This one's been in the charts for a long time and I can only begin to imagine how hectic Pitbull's days are. How many artists has he collaborated with over the years exactly? Does he wake up every morning and think only, 'Heck, who's video am I appearing in today?' I still love this, even though it was released back in December in the UK. Look out for some incredible line dancing and the adorable swimming pigs.
Enrique Iglesias- I'm A Freak ft. yep, you guessed it, Pitbull. To be honest, I wasn't convinced I liked this first time around - but it's definitely grown on me. Enrique turns forty next year, which doesn't make me old enough to be his mother, despite what my daughters might think. Warning - this video features a lot of scantily-clad females and only one scantily-clad male that, erm, sadly isn't Enrique. Look out for Enrique in glasses - cute.
Pharrell - Happy. I still love this song, even though it's been available to download since last year and we had a sneak preview during summer 2013, as it's the soundtrack from Despicable Me 2. It's impossible to listen to, without feeling 110% better than you did at the start. And why do I have an overwhelming urge to recreate the video featuring clips of my daughters dancing? You can only begin to imagine their response when I was crazy enough to suggest it.
I would like to thank Sophia and Olivia, for not downloading some of their more alternative music choices onto my playlist this time around. Although, I usually develop a taste for whatever they've downloaded eventually. I've even taken to Macklemore's Thrift Shop ft Ryan Lewis. Having heard this on the radio yesterday, I've decided that it's so bad, it's actually good! Sadly, there wasn't a clean version of the video to download on the blog.
I can't help thinking that there should be clubs for mums who just want to dance and have no one judge their moves. When I shared this thought with my daughters, they told me that was what housework was for! Ever feel like Cinderella?
Until next time...
