I was listening to ANOTHER cover song/remix of a song I love, but did not enjoy it again. I was with my mum at the time. We started talking about how few songs there are, that we enjoy, that are covers or remixes. So I thought that I would post my Top 5 of what I consider to be the “best”. Mainly because I don’t have many, lol.
In no particular order…
Couldn’t have a list about covers and remixes without this one, I like it more than the original:
“Got My Mind Set on You” was the last song by a Beatle to top the Billboard Hot 100, but the song itself wasn’t actually written by a Beatle. It was written by Rudy Clark in 1962, and it was James Ray’s jazzy version that Harrison encountered during a (pre-Beatlemania) visit to the US in 1963. More than two decades later, an off-the-cuff remark from “Dream Weaver” singer Gary Wright about “Got My Mind Set on You” recalled the older song to Harrison.
I am DETERMINED this Pride to write only positive posts when I write about the LGBTQIA. You all know how horrible it’s been lately. I don’t need to continually remind you, haha
I will be putting them under my Category of Blog Challenges. Because the world is being horrible to the LGBTQIA community. It feels like a challenge, to get through all the mud and the horribleness and find positive things. Because there really are!
What better way than to start with my favourite Drag Queen, who is my non-family favourite Drag Queen, haha
Alaska Thunderfuck – ROY G BIV BBT (Official Music Video)
I have decided to create a playlist on my iPod of songs that are “me”. I am posting a couple of the video’s here. They’re all songs that mean something to me, even if I can’t place my finger on it. I am actually shocked that I haven’t done one before. I decided to do it after my partner heard me playing “My Immortal” by Evanescence and he asked “When was my emo stage”, and you know what? I don’t think I had one. I was a angry teenager, but never emo. I had pretty much nothing to be happy about during my teens. Nothing to do with emotions. I just had nothing to be happy about. I guess I’ve never anyone to find my list, but after speaking with my therapist, I am now okay that I was a angry teenager. I didn’t do drugs or sleep around, I’d cry and yell a lot, because NO ONE listened. Some of these things may seem like about romance, but not necessarily. Rihanna’s “Take a Bow” for example, is for ex-friends that have pretended to be my friend.
You should all follow Katy! ❤ She is such a wonder to the trans community, and I always love her eye make up, haha. And NOW, she has more subscribers than Glinner! Whose a straight cis man, who harasses women, lesbian and straight, if you are a trans ally. He also created “The I.T. Crowd” and I think some others. He has been banned from nearly every single social media platform.
So, please subscribed to Katy’s YouTube ❤ She is a beautiful person, and takes a lot of heat from TERFs and GCS, including other trans people, who suck up to TERFs and GCs. She does a LOT of videos about what she puts up with, and gets on a daily basis, based in the UK. It’s a lot! But she handles it SO well!
Don’t you just love it when you stumble across a really fantastic YouTube channel?! Alex Meyers has to be up there. What his channel basically is, broken down. He re-watches mainly old classic tv shows or really popular mainstream current shows and movies. Mostly his titles are “Movie/Show name insert…Doesn’t make any sense”. And he usually right. Even saying that so he still really enjoys, pretty much, everything he watches. His point of view of though, is usually pretty spot on.
