Katy Perry – Teenage Dream (Official Lyrics Video)
I apologize for the music posts but there are way too many catchy songs going around the internet. It’s a good day!
You make me feel like I’m livin’ a teenage dream, the way you turn me on… I can’t sleep… let’s run away and don’t ever look back, don’t ever look back. My heart stops when you look at me, just one touch… Now baby I believe this is real so take a chance and don’t ever look back, don’t ever look back.
Katy Perry has a new single called Teenage Dream. She’s in her twenties but her lyrics sound like they were written by a fifteen year old but I like it.
Have you heard Robyn’s latest track, Hang With Me? It’s gonna be out in September. I can’t wait to see the official video. I’m a BIG Robyn fan. There’s always a very human connection with her songs (case in point: Dancing On My Own, among others). ANYWAY…
Here’s the acoustic version. TRULY AMAZING!!!
Let’s sing altogether now…
Just don’t fall recklessly, headlessly in love with me cause it’s gonna be… all heartbreak, blissfully painful and insanity if we agree.
When you see me drift astray outta touch and outta place… will you tell me to my face? Then I guess you can hang with me.
And if you do me right, I’m gonna do right by you… and if you keep it tight, I’m gonna confide in you. I know what’s on your mind, there will be time for that too if you hang with me… hang with me.
Marina & The Diamonds – I Am Not A Robot (Starsmith 24 Carat Remix)
Here’s a not-so-oldie but totally goodie track. You’ve probably heard “I Am Not a Robot” before but this is my favourite remix. I think it’s the same version Prabal Gurung used to open his Fall 2010 runway show.
You’ve been acting awful tough lately. Smoking a lot of cigarettes lately. But inside, you’re just a little baby. It’s okay to say you’ve got a weak spot, you don’t always have to be on top. Better to be hated than loved, loved, loved for what you’re not.
You’ve been hanging with the unloved kids who you never really liked and you never trusted. But you are so magnetic, you pick up all the pins… never committing to anything. You don’t pick up the phone when it ring, ring, rings. Don’t be so pathetic, just open up and sing.
You know, I still feel terrible because I was supposed to see her perform in Brooklyn a few weeks ago but the friend I was gonna go there with backed out in the end. I didn’t wanna go there by myself so I ended up not going. Boo! Hiss!
I hope to see her next time.

What a very sad day. I don’t like receiving news like this so early in the morning. Another iconic British figure bites the dust. The amazing Malcolm McLaren passed away yesterday in Switzerland. He was 64.
Malcolm McLaren, an impresario, recording artist and fashion designer who as manager of the Sex Pistols played a decisive role in creating the British punk movement, died on Thursday in Switzerland. He was 64.
The cause was mesothelioma, a cancer of the linings around organs, said Young Kim, his companion of many years. She said he had been under treatment at a Swiss hospital. The couple had a home in Paris. — NY Times
While most will remember him as the Sex Pistol’s former manager or Vivienne Westwood’s ex-husband, I’ll forever remember him as an amazing artist. I always play his (very emotional, mind you) songs every time I need a jolt of inspiration. He’s one of the reasons why I love Paris so much.
Listen to La Main Parisienne or else I’m terminating our friendship STAT!
From Madame Butterfly to Deep in Vogue, as a tribute, let me share to you some of my other favourite tracks.
