MMJotW: The Lighthouse and The Whaler – Pioneers

I love how fun and free this song sounds. Makes me feel like I’m running around in an open field right at dusk. Not what you picture when you hear this song? ha  

This is the first song that I have heard from The Lighthouse and The Whaler, but it has hooked me. Unfortunately, I just missed them by one week when they were performing at my favorite music hall in NYC. Hopefully they will come back again soon.  Enjoy the song!

Umm…speaking of whales, check out Blackfish if you haven’t already! Here’s the full trailer!  I have officially become obsessed with orcas after this movie:

MMJotW: Cool

Image

I saw Anthony Hamilton perform at the Fox Theatre in Oakland a couple years ago and I was impressed by his performance and live vocals. His voice is so smooth and relaxing with strong roots in gospel. Listening to him sing (especially in this song) makes me want to lay down in the grass and feel the cool breeze pass over me. How does it make you feel?

MMJoTW: Bruno Mars “Gorilla”

ImageThanks to my good friend, JC, from the bay, I was lucky to see Bruno Mars on his Moonshine Jungle Tour at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.  I was quite impressed with how  fabulous Bruno Mars was live and since this was my first time seeing him live, I had no expectations. I actually knew more of his songs than I thought I would and he put on a spectacular show with not one, but six hypemen behind him. They, including Bruno Mars, all wore flashy red suits with leopard print tank tops and gold chains.  The show was full of energy, pyrotechnics, shots of tropical birds, glitter and animal sounds.

I was definitely enjoying the show, but Bruno took it to another level when he was performing “Our First Time” from his Doo-Wops & Hooligans album and remixed it with some 90s classics like Ginuwine’s “Pony”, GhostTown DJs’ “My Boo”, Soul for Real’s “Candy Rain” and Aaliyah’s “Rock The Boat”. All of these songs have either been featured on MMJotW or should be soon! All of my fave jams!

Like most concerts, Bruno returned for an encore and played “Locked out of Heaven” and “Gorilla”. “Gorilla” was highlighted with green lighting, flames, an animated film of palm trees and a spotlight on Bruno. It’s quite a powerful and sexy song. Check it out!
