I watched Moana for the first time a couple of months ago, and I absolutely loved it. Most of the songs stuck with me, but this one possibly the most. Every time I say “you’re welcome” to someone, I tend to hum the song. I can’t help myself, it’s so catchy!
When I went home for Easter I heard my three year old niece singing it, which was adorable. She doesn’t know English, so she was just making noises that sounded similar to the words. Cutest ever.
Without further ado; You’re Welcome from the Moana movie, sung by Dwayne Johnson.
You’ve probably already come across this, but I’m not a big Youtube viewer so I miss most things until a friend or brother show it to me. I found this one quite funny, maybe because I also think that “Shake It Off” is a very catchy song. Seeing the real actors towards the end is possibly the best part. That and “fake” Dean doing the Eye of the Tiger moves.
Let’s do a Monday Movie! Though this is more the song than the movie. I don’t know why, I just really like this one. Have a playlist that I run through when at the PC, and this is one of the newest additions.
I love this video. I’m not entirely sure why. Maybe because the little girl is such an amazing dancer, with her facial expressions and everything. Or maybe because it’s so sad towards the end. In any case, I really like it (and the song).
I’ve recently discovered the Pentatonix, an a Capella group with a lot of YouTube videos. They apparently won the third season of the Sing Off in the US. In any case, I think they’re amazing. I love how a Capella can sound like there are instruments and everything.
There are so many fun movies on YouTube, I just feel that I have to share some! This one is from the very talented Lindsey Stirling, who’s great on the violin. She makes a lot of covers, but this is a song she’s written herself, and she has help from Lzzy Hale on vocals. It’s a very catchy song!
Yep! That’s right. I’m writing this from my new apartment 🙂
It’s still full of boxes of course – I really need to try and get around to unpacking some 🙂
Bailey is settling in – but he’s not yet used to being in an apartment and still reacts to most noises outside the door *lol* He also has a new habit of climbing up into the windows and looking outside (how does a dog climb, you ask? very well, I must say.. my couch is right in front of the living room window )
I’m addicted to a song from the Swedish band Lillasyster – Umbrella. It is so much better than Rihanna’s version (which was never my type of music anyway!)
Today it is exactly six weeks until Christmas. Which really means that Christmas is quite soon… This knowledge fills me with childlike glee and makes me positively giddy. Quite sad one might think, but personally I’m just glad that one can still be happy for such small things.
I went to IKEA today with my sister and they had all of their beautiful Christmas decorations out for sale. I’ve decided that this year I simply MUST have a little Christmas tree. I can get lots of nice decorations at IKEA and it’ll all be going up on December 1st and stay until New Year’s! What can I say? I love Christmas and I want to be in the spirit of it as soon as I can.
The other day I went into town to look for a winter coat. I met with less success there than at IKEA. For some reason I couldn’t find a single one that I contemplated buying for more than about five seconds (which is what it took me to get a little closer for a good look). The one that I actually thought was ok my sister said was too similar to hers, so I couldn’t possibly buy that one. (Hmm…?)
I’ve reserved tickets to see Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire on opening night. (Which is 23 November, about a week later than the rest of the world… I’m very upset!) I must admit, I’m a huge Harry Potter fan. I buy the books the moment they’re out and I watch the movies as soon as I possibly can. If that makes me into an outgrown child, then so be it. (Besides, Jason Isaacs as Lucius Malfoy is very, very … um, very… sexy.)
I’ve bought the first five seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer on DVD. (It’s a guilty pleasure of mine…) and just started watching them. Very sad the whole Buffy-Angel thing, but I just have to say that Spike is yummy-yummy. (He just arrived in Sunnydale, insane-Drusilla and all.) Oh, and Xander is cute.
Been buying some CDs as well. (I don’t know what’s gotten into me…)
1. Nickelback – All the Right Reasons
2. Robbie Williams – Greatest Hits
3. Green Day – American Idiot
4. The Corpse Bride (Soundtrack)
5. Pride & Prejudice (Soundtrack)
Status of Synopsis: Still not started. *sigh* I have absolutely no inspiration. Maybe I should just dig a large hole and jump in.
