Music Monday – Iggy Azalea

It’s been quite some time since I’ve featured anything for Music Monday. Quite frankly, I just haven’t been all that inspired – until now! If you’ve been following me on any sort of social media lately, you’ve probably heard me mention Iggy Azalea. Since stumbling upon her “Clueless”-inspired music video for “Fancy” a week or…


Music Monday – Lana Del Rey

I’ve been a Lana Del Rey fan for a while now, and loved her debut album Born To Die. I was pleased as punch to find out that she was providing a song for Baz Luhrmann’s new “The Great Gatsby” film. I am a ridiculously huge Baz fan – the Moulin Rouge soundtrack remains one…


Music Monday – She & Him (WITH FULL ALBUM PREVIEW)

The first track off of She & Him’s much anticipated new album, “Volume 3” doesn’t disappoint on any level – it’s bubbly, fresh and true to the group’s folky core. “Never Wanted Your Love” is led once again by Zooey Deschanel’s soulful vocals, and M. Ward’s fantastic musical arranging, and it makes me feel like…


Music Monday – New Kids On the Block

I honestly didn’t think there would be a day where I featured NKOTB on my blog – I mean maybe if I had this blog back in 1988, when I was 5 and screaming “Hangin’ Tough” from my bedroom it would have been another story (blogs at that age would be amusing to read now)…


Music Monday – TNGHT

Short and sweet Music Monday today… This week’s Music Monday takes a turn for the DANCE. I first heard this song in a commercial for Adidas (ever notice how they utilize some amazing music in their commercials?!) and I immediately started dancing to it. While sitting down. I couldn’t help myself. By the time I…


Music Monday – Anna Kendrick

Okay, so I was bad last week and didn’t post a Music Monday. Didn’t have much to share in terms of music, I suppose. But I stumbled upon this track last Friday, and I immediately knew what my next Music Monday post would be about. As most of my friends know, I’m a Pitch Perfect-aholic,…


“Muse”-ic Monday: Muse

Okay, I have to admit, I was thisclose to featuring Macklemore & Ryan Lewis this week again for my Music Monday. However, considering it’s only been two weeks since I featured them, I figured it was probably time to give someone else the spotlight. (But hey, fair warning, he could be showing up again soon…


Playlist of the Moment

I still stand by the power of an awesome playlist. Even though I am habitually attached to my iPad, iPhone, and iPod, I still burn CDs for my car. There is just nothing like burning a nice set of songs together to commemorate a certain place in your life, any place at all in fact….


Music Monday: ZZ Ward

I can always count on my friends to recommend some great music. This weekend when meeting up with my BFF Nicole for lunch, she gave me a disc from the new-to-me-artist ZZ Ward. I was immediately impressed with the entire album, and knew it would be a great fit for an upcoming Music Monday post!…


Music Monday: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

I decided to start a “Music Monday” post theme here on LifeAficionada, in which I plan on sharing with you new and interesting music that I well… feel like sharing, really. Some will be good. Some may be bad. But they will all be songs you can find on my iPod. Unless you’ve been hiding…
