oh t-pain…

This week’s MMJotW is dedicated to my BFF, who I know has a strong love for this song. This week’s jam is “Low” by Flo-Rida, featuring T-Pain. This is a very special event for the Melinda Mae blog since I will never ever feature another T-Pain song on the MMJotW, so BFF, I hope you appreciate this.

Every time I hear this song, I am always reminded of my BFF and his classy dance moves to this song. And when most people hear the line “Apple bottoms jeans…”, they can likely finish the rest of the hook and then it happens… the song is in your brain for the rest of the day. Damn those boots with the fur! Enjoy this ultimate club jam from 2008 and hope you sing it a few times throughout the day.

MMJotW: The Civil Wars “Tip of My Tongue”

I love the way that The Civil Wars sound. Their sound is very smooth and soothing and the blend of their voices is beautiful. They remind me a lot of of Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova of the Swell Season and the movie, “Once”. I feel like they could be perfectly cast for the musical, “Once,” since their sound and voices are so similar to that of the original actors especially this song, “To Whom It May Concern.” Some of their music has also been featured on the TV show, “Nashville”.  The Civil Wars’ album “Barton Hollow” has a lot of really amazing and underrated songs so please listen if you like this song.

I was excited to potentially catch them live but unfortunately, they decided to break apart this past November and cancelled all of their tour dates. =(  Hopefully they will get back together and continue to make music. There is something very genuine and touching about their music. You’ll have to hear for yourself…”Tip of My Tongue.”

MMJotW: & It Was You

The cold weather is still hanging around but the good news is that the days are longer now. With the weather and a bad case of the Mondays providing a damper on today, I decided to pick a song for you all to dance and groove to. This week’s MMJotW is How To Dress Well’s “& It Was You.” Here is the official video, which I would not recommend watching. The song is much better enjoyed with eyes closed, body swaying and fingers snapping. Enjoy!
