09:43 pm: Music: Summer faves
Hello LJ-world (provided there are still someone left here - not that I should talk!)

This is basically me dropping by to wish everyone a nice summer! :o)
And while I was at it, I figured I might as well do a wee list, my top five fave songs at the moment. And if you know a little something about me, you will know that this list may or may not be a little bit... original. Yes, I was being diplomatic. Here we go:

1) Mika - We are golden




Came across Mika´s "Grace Kelly" (which I still love) when in Lanzarote in February, and I just really like his music, as well as his style. He´s so crazy and quirky!

2) Gayla Peevy - I want a hippopotamus for Christmas



I just... have no idea how this song got stuck in my head. I know, I know! All I know is that I was happily singing along to "Scales and arpeggios" from The Aristocats, and suddenly I was on this video. I blame those naughty kittens!

3) Taylor Swift - I knew you were trouble



Mhmm. She likes Taylor. My fave song is "22" but I´ve been playing this the most lately.

4) Gina G - Fresh!



This is an oldie (mid-90s I think) but it was played during an aerobics class once, and since then I´ve been hooked on it. Always puts me in a summer mood!

5) Madcon - Kjører på



Now, Madcon is just made of awesome, I mean seriously. So in spite of having international success, they really deserve a lot of respect for going on and making an all-Norwegian album.
Love this song - in spite of them having to throw a Swede into it as well... ;o) ;o)



Anyone got any summer tunes they wanna share...?

I *love* Mika. Grace Kelly is one of my favourite songs ever, it's just so catchy.

I heard that Hippopotamus song for the first time when we were in the States. The Christmas radio channel used it play it every year. It's so random! *lol*

I guess my go-to Summer music would have to be Abba. I think I listen to them more than anyone else in the Summer months.

I also love this infectiously upbeat song ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3RjCiq1ICY


And recently I've been obsessed with this song ---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zvCBSSwgtg4 which I think is kinda perfect for singing along to while you're having a BBQ in the garden. :P

Ooo, another Mika fan?! Nice! I just love "Grace Kelly" too, and I´m currently downloading most of the songs from the "Life in cartoon motion" album off iTunes. Really like "Lollipop" and "Popular song" too.

Ah of course... ABBA is classic :o)

Sadly I can´t access the first link, it´s apparently blocked in Norway, but the last song I´ve heard yes! Reminds me a little of the "Life is life" song from aaaages ago.

I can´t believe I´ve not found Mika before, right now I´m actually obsessed with "Touching you" XXX

That link works, aaaah a Cola song! :o) I know I´ve heard snippets of that one yes. That´s a lovely song! Probably great for working out.
