Friday Five: Favorite Music Right Now

This is definitely not an exhaustive list – if it was Britney Spears and boy bands would be featured heavily. That being said, this is what I’m listening to right now.

1. Kelly Rowland feat. Big Sean– Lay it on Me

So much fun! Peppy, catchy, and danceable (while I'm in the car). Plus I love Big Sean. Anyone who can't possibly have more than a 28 inch waist and refers to himself as "Big" is good people in my books. Kelly Rowland is bringing it. Beyonce who? I kid! Love you Bey! Honorable mention to the Motivation remix as well.

2. Adele – Set Fire to the Rain

This is my favorite song from her album 21. I love that she can also really sing, and doesn't rely on being so gimmicky like Lady Gaga, who is also a great singer, but she always gets lost behind her "art" and makes people who would otherwise like her, want to punch her.

3. Rascal Flatts feat. Natasha Bedingfield – Easy

I know. I like country music. Please don't hold it against me. I'm a lover of almost all types of music, and my curse is that I couldn't carry a tune in a bucket. This song though - it's so good. Rascal Flatts always has good, depressing love/break up songs. I can see why Taylor Swift was drawn to country music - the drama! PS - sorry about the commercial before the video. On the plus side - yay Team Jacob!

4. The Killers - When We Were Young

So I know this is an old song, but I love The Killers. Brandon Flowers has a reputation for being kind of a douche, but I think they are awesome. We saw them in concert once and for such a tiny man - seriously, he can't be more than 5'5, he was so charismatic. Loved him. Love the song.

5. Anything by Eminem.
It’s true. I love him. I always have and always will. I think if he died, I’d actually be sad. Come on, you feel it too, don’t you? Let me remind you.

So, do you think I have horrible taste in music? What are you listening to right now?


  1. I LOVE Adele! We played so much of her music at our wedding :)

    And! "When we were young" is totally one of my favorite songs to sing on Rockband.... And I often have "Somebody told me" stuck in my head.... even though that wasn't on your list.

  2. My list would be similar, except 2pac would be added and i'd add another tiny man to the group - keith urban.
    adele scares me. she always seems so annoyed when she sings. she has an amazing voice, but would it kill her to crack a smile, why the stoneface!
