Music Monday: ‘Show Me What I’m Looking For’

Hey Milieunairs,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Music Monday –

This weeks flavour: Pop Rock

Artist: Carolina Liar

Album: Coming To Terms

Song: Show Me What I’m Looking For

Rationale: I discovered Carolina Liar through the television series ‘90210’. You know, the reboot of yesteryears ‘Beverly Hills: 90210’? I would describe Carolina Liar’s style as follows: Two cups of Keane, mixed with a Cup of One Republic, a half a cup of The Fray, a teaspoon of Coldplay, with just a pinch of Muse (mixed thoroughly). Best when served fresh from the oven of teenage angst, misunderstanding and emotion. If you enjoy listening to any of the aforementioned artists then you will enjoy Carolina Liar.

I chose the song Show Me What I’m Looking For, because I believe that everyone will, at some point, ask for guidance. Throughout our lives we are given many choices. Each choice leads to eventual answers. Those answers result in a multitude of possibilities. The various possibilities are what allow us to learn through living. The question is, which lessons do we want to make a part of our lives? The answer? Well, each journey is unique and most often comprised entirely of our own creation. Simply put, the ‘choice is yours’. However, I have learnt that the choices we fear most, the ones which possibly harbour the most eventful outcomes, are often the ones which offer the greatest level of experience, fulfilment and understanding. Subsequently, the only piece of advice I can give is this: do not be afraid to take a risk every now and again. Even if you fail, you will gained experience, experience which may continue to shape your future… for the better!

Music Monday: ‘Fuck You’

Hey Milieunairs,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Music Monday –

This weeks flavour: Pop

Artist: Lily Allen

Album: It’s not me, it’s you

Song: Fuck You

Rationale: Of all the phrases to be blogging about, can you believe that the one song I choose from Lily Allen’s new album would contain the acronym for “Fornicating Under Consent of the King”? Those who personally know me can attest to the fact that I simply do not use the ‘eff’ word (even now while thinking the word I say ‘eff’). In fact, I barely swear – with the exception of the words ‘bitch’ and ‘shit’, which I use sparingly. Personally, I am not a great fan of colloquialism and believe that obscenely vulgar language, used in excess and no matter how deliciously descriptive, is just a new means of raping the English tongue. However, in this very rare case, I have made an exception. Lily Allen’s song “Fuck You” is brilliant! It has such a catchy tune and is a song specifically written for those who belong to minority groups (none of which I am a part of, being a straight white male and all) and who embrace a liberal stance to life. Consequently, I came across this video, called ‘The Big Fat Gay Collab’ (the video’s image placeholder is so sexually suggestive… I am not sure if I will be able to eat ice-cream the same way again…), while searching for Lily’s ‘eff you’ song on YouTube. Lily Allen’s new album is a pop fiesta filled with witty lyrics and tactlessness. If you like Lily’s music, you will love this album!

Music Monday: ‘You Found Me’

Hey Milieu-nites,

It is Music Monday and thus time for another Vivaciously Varietal Vibe!

Music Monday –

This weeks flavour: Pop Rock

Artist: The Fray

Album: The Fray

Song: You Found Me

Rationale: It is the Fray! Need I say more? Well, okay. The singer does look a bit like Shrek but he does have a great voice. I suppose ‘beauty’ can run deep, or, depending on how much alcohol you have consumed, it can lie in the eye of the ‘beer-holder’. On a serious note, the songs are still as depressing thought provoking as before and are fantastic to listen to. Simply put, if you have enjoyed listening to The Fray’s previous work then you will enjoy the new album in its entirety.
