AWESOME!- The Glee Cast cover ‘We Are Young’

‘We Are Young’ is a very awesome song, by a band called ‘Fun’, featuring the very special Janelle Monae. I’m sure they’d be awesome as well, but its been a bit difficult finding more free ‘Fun’ mp3s. I’ve loved this song for months now, and I imagine that if I were drunk, at a ‘Fun’ concert, I would actually weep as I sing along. Haha. Its not that deep (still, I’d cry), but its an awesome song. It makes me shiver, its that special.

Well, well, well, FUN is an alternative band signed to Fueled By Ramen. Be sure to check out their Youtube page (Fueled by Ramen), they have quite a number of great bands under their label. If rock and alternative music is your thing, that is.  Or if you’re inquisitive, or if you just want to sample something new. It wouldn’t hurt, by all means check it out. Good good stuff 🙂

The Glee cast performed ‘We Are Young’ on their most recent episode which aired on the 6th of December (two days ago). Its going to take a while for me to get that, but I just saw the video on Youtube (Thank God for Google and for Youtube!) and it was so beautiful; if I was a little less hood than this, I would tear up a little. It gave me the shivers as well. FUN isn’t a really popular band, and I am positive that most people who are more ‘mainstream’ would look for them, and love them after they see or hear the cover. Yayy FUN! 🙂

Good Good Music: Amy Winehouse- Hidden Treasures.

I did not put up this post to invite any dense comments about Amy’s troubles. If you got off your judgmental short-sighted high horse, you’d probably appreciate that Amy made beautiful music- honest, original, soulful, and true.

The third album from the awfully talented Amy Winehouse is out today, Lioness: Hidden Treasures.

This 12-track record has been put together by two of Amy’s long-time friends and musical partners Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson. It features previously unreleased music- Amy’s renditions of some classics, as well as new compilations by Amy, and the original versions of ‘Valerie’ and ‘Tears Dry’, both beautiful hits from her Back to Black album.

On Friday, I managed to find ‘Like Smoke’ (Nas is featured on this one), ‘Between the Cheats’, ‘Half-Time’ and her lovely reggae rendition of ‘Our Day Will Come’, and I’ve been so excited, I cannot wait to hear the rest of this album.

For the full tracklist, you could go directly to her site, here: http://www.amywinehouse.com/2011/10/lioness-hidden-treasures-announcement/

You could also watch the video for ‘Our Day Will Come’, you’re welcome.

 

Rest in Peace, Amy.

 

Love, Peace and Happiness to all
