Jill Scott – Hate On Me

When I listen to this song I feel strong, gutsy and bold.  For all the times someone was mean to me, overlooked me, looked down on  me, this song says stand up, be proud, and don’t let the haters get you down.

I also love her voice, her style, her natural hair, and that she’s a proud and unapologetic big girl!

You go girl!

Taylor Swift’s Red

 

 

I asked for Swift’s Red in my office Secret Santa exchange and got it!  I listened to it all weekend instead of Christmas music.  I enjoyed it.  She reminds me of Jewel a bit.  I love that she writes her own songs.  My husband said, “Maybe she should consider a songwriter.”  :)

Here’s one of my faves, We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together:

God didn’t make little green apples

 

My Dad used to sing this song to me.  It still makes me smile.

***

And I wake up in the mornin’
With my hair down in my eyes and she says “Hi”
And I stumble to the breakfast table
While the kids are goin’ off to school…goodbye
And she reaches out ‘n’ takes my hand
And squeezes it ‘n’ says “How ya feelin’, hon?”
And I look across at smilin’ lips
That warm my heart and see my mornin’ sun

And if that’s not lovin’ me
Then all I’ve got to say
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And there’s no such thing as Doctor Seuss
Or Disneyland, and Mother Goose, no nursery rhyme
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t rain in Indianapolis in the summertime
And when my self is feelin’ low
I think about her face aglow and ease my mind

Sometimes I call her up at home knowin’ she’s busy
And ask her if she could get away and meet me
And maybe we could grab a bite to eat
And she drops what she’s doin’ and she hurries down to meet me
And I’m always late
But she sits waitin’ patiently and smiles when she first sees me
’cause she’s made that way

And if that ain’t lovin’ me
Then all I’ve got to say
God didn’t make little green apples
And it don’t snow in Minneapolis when the winter comes
And there’s no such thing as make-believe
Puppy dogs, autumn leaves ‘n’ BB guns

My favorite things

This was one of my son’s favorite songs.  I love it too.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad
