Wickless Wednesday: Current Favorite Songs!

I'm not addicted to only wax, yaknow. I am also addicted to music.
Every once in a while, I like to post what I'm jammin' out to, old and new!
What songs are taking you through the early part of summer? Let me know in the comments! :)
I am OBSESSED with "All of the Stars" by Ed Sheeran. This song is from the soundtrack to "The Fault in Our Stars" and it fits the movie perfectly. It has so much emotion, especially if you've read the book or seen the movie. You never know what the stars are telling you!
This is the lyrics video for "Stay" by Rihanna feat. Mikky Ekko. Love this song. Again, another with lots of emotion behind it. Rihanna has had her troubles, so part of me thinks this song is about all of that. Well, we can all identify with the message behind this song...right? Anyways, I am not really a Rihanna fan, but this song is just splendid and haunting, too. You can hear the pain in her voice while singing it. least to me it sounds that way!
Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes" is from the soundtrack for "Dirty Dancing" and has been stuck in my head for a month and a half. The scene in the movie where this song is featured has one of the best ad-libbed scenes in movies. Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey didn't get along on set, and when he was tickling her arm during a dancing training session, she kept laughing and giggling, thus pissing Swayze off enough to get annoyed. The faces he makes are 100% authentic because he really was getting mad, and this wasn't in the script. I love this movie so much, it's insane.
So, we reviewed "Jersey Boys" on our movie blog a couple of weeks ago. It was good, at least the music was. I got my hands on the soundtrack and I'm so glad I did. The song "Cry For Me" by Erich Bergen is just AMAZING! Really! He has such a soulful voice that it makes this song great. I hope he finds success after this movie because he was my favorite part of it. I Tweeted about this song and my dancing around to it, and Erich favorited the Tweet! I had a minor fangirl episode. ;)
Finally, we have another song from a movie! We recently saw "Begin Again," and though I am not a fan of Keira Knightley, the movie was really, really good! The song "Lost Stars"by Adam Levine and Keira Knightley (yes, she sings all her songs in the movie!!) was immediately stuck in my head upon viewing the trailer, and it's still stuck in my head even now. Strange, but Adam Levine is the movie, that's not a typo. When the two sing this song together, it's all sorts of magical. I love the lyrics, I love the tone, it's fantastic all around.

Again, what songs have you been rockin' lately? Let me know, I'm always looking for more music! :)


  1. Keira Knightley...... *puke* ...... I can't stand her.

    I'm revisiting my obsession with that great disco classic Keep It Comin' Love, by KC & the Sunshine Band! WOOOOOT!!!!!!! I love the video.

    In current music I'm loving Come With Me Now, by Kongos.


    1. Same here about Keira, bleh! Really didn't mind her in this, though.

      LOVE KC & the Sunshine Band, though, good pick! Also, that Kongos song is really good, that reminds me I need to download it. Thanks for giving me your suggestions!

    2. I want to get the theme song from the show Salem but the versions I've found are not the same. It's a Marilyn Manson song. Doh! lol
