Music Monday 161 :: Alice Smith's "New Religion: (Live)

Music Monday 161 :: Alice Smith's "New Religion" (LIVE)

After my recent purchase of an iPad Mini, my music library did not transfer smoothly to the new device. It's a bit cumbersome to add your own non-iTunes music to Apple devices - one of my biggest pet peeves about the company.

I say all that to say, one track that somehow weathered the storm is Alice Smith's "New Religion." Her rich and nuanced voice is ultimately relaxing. It's hard to believe that it's been, what, six years since this track was first released.

Check her out on Instagram too.

Here's a live version of "New Religion."  Or check out the original version. Enjoy.

Music Monday 160 :: Liv Warfield's "Why Do You Lie" from "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"

I saw this performance a few week's ago: fascinating and fabulous.

Liv Warfield has got it. It being: the voice. The persona. The band. The backup singers. This ... is the complete package.

Love this!

For a Quick Aerobic Workout, Try This

For a quick aerobic workout, this this short vid on YouTube.



It's just enough to get warmed up. Even on a lazy day, it might get you motivated to do a bit more. You know, to get you pass that sluggish feeling.



I know that the title says 10 Minute Fitness Routines - Fat Burning Basic Aerobics, but this one is just over 6 minutes. Even more reason to give it a try.



Here's what I like about it:

  • As mentioned, it's brief.
  • The music is not too high energy, but not the yoga pace either.
  • The instructor is not annoying.
  • The moves are easy to do.
So what's stopping you now? Let's do this!

Music Monday 159 :: Imagine Dragons & Kendrick Lamar Perform “Radioactive” Remix on SNL

Music Monday 159 :: Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar's "Radioactive" Remix on SNL

This video is the business: brass and passionate. The track alone is great. For this live performance on Saturday Night Live (SNL), they go ham and it's awesome.

Music Monday 158 :: Sara Bareilles "Brave"

Music Monday 158 :: Sara Bareilles "Brave"

Musically, this song is just okay. I do, however, like Sara Bareilles' voice. I also like the theme of the track. But what I like more than anything are the dancers in the video. Awesome.
