Posting nowadays has become a once in a while occurrence. Unfortunately I have moved into my college’s hostel which is making it extremely difficult to blog thanks to all the internet restrictions. Don’t worry though, I shall find a way to blog more often, and be back on track soon enough. This is going to be short post, but once my exams are done, my posts will get longer, promise!
On another note I can’t get enough of MIA’s ‘Bad Girls’. The song and the video are both so striking and addictive, all in all extremely deserving of the two VMA’s she took home this year for Best Direction and Best Cinematography. I mean you have cars drifting and doing stunts on two wheels and a horse galloping through the desert… How can all this NOT be sexy?
The song really makes you want to move, so I would suggest listening to its Middle Eastern beats during a particularly heavy work out- at the club. My friends and I went crazy one night waving our hair around and jumping around in a delirious manner, and even though our lives are sad at the moment due to our hostel curfew, we still find solace in MIA’s music.
Here’s the video for ‘Bad Girls’:
While scouring YouTube for new music, I came across a little firecracker called Gin Wigmore. She sounds like a mix of Duffy and Amy Winehouse, and frankly I could not be happier. The song I heard is called ‘Man Like That’ and its full of energy and jazz, the music video portraying scenes out of the 1920’s. Wigmore is dressed like a flapper and does these insane dance moves that just make you want to stand and move along with her.
YouTube is seriously one of the best ways to discover new artists and music. Just try spending an hour clicking on the videos suggested on the side of the video you’re watching, pick an artist you’ve never heard of before and explore. I really owe YouTube a big thanks for helping me discover Lana Del Rey back when Video Games had just 20,000 views and now I can’t imagine life without Lana. So go ahead, take a chance and surf through YouTube. IF, of course, you can stomach the 8374923492 ads they show before the videos. ; )
