“So Call Me, Maybe?” Jepsen has it all wrong

June 7, 2012


"So call me, maybe?" No, B*tch. If I give you my number, it's because you need to call me. I had to get real for a second, because that's exactly how I felt when the lyrics finally made sense to me. Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call me Maybe" is definitely one of those Top 40 songs you hear every hour if you're listening to the radio. I like the song, it's happy-go-lucky, and yeah I know the words. That's how I figured out this girl had it all wrong! ... Also, Link to related article on "Call Me Maybe Business Card Used to Pick Up Women" -Emilia

Heart Beat: “Titanium” David Guetta feat. Sia

May 23, 2012


I love working out to electronic house music... and one of my favorite DJs is none other than David Guetta. This track not only has a great beat, but the lyrics are empowering. I love anything that amps you up and gets the courage flowing! When you're working out and you think your out of fuel this song is a definite "Power Song" on the play list. Like the song says, "You shoot me down but I won't fall...I am titanium." This is the song to sing to when anyone or everyone (or even you) are against you... blast it proud and loud because you are titanium!
