BreakupA post at Abdullah’s p0ach inspired me to write this post. I saw some “steps to get over her/him” in a magazine, and I thought I’d share the main points, with giving my own take to it, ready? here goes:

1- Keep a clean house/room: Well, this step would not necessarily apply here in Kuwait because people in relationships do not live together, unless married and that’s a whole other topic. So I’d say the first step it take everything that reminds you of her/him out of your place. Gifts, clothes, movies…etc. BUT do that only if you’re the type of person who gets nostalgic easily, who’s always reminiscing. If her/his stuff being around doesn’t affect you much, then more power to you.

2- Hide your mobile: Are you the type of person whose day revolves around a phone call? yes? ok here’s what to do, throw your phone, or keep it with one of your trusted friends, if you keep your phone by your side, you’ll always be waiting, and checking, did it ring? will she/he call? a message? an email? a facebook notification..etc. that thinking will only lower your productivity and bring you down. Think of it this way, keep in your mind that they won’t call, won’t text, won’t do anything associated with contacting you, and live your day on those basis. If they called, you’d know, and take it as a “bonus”. If not, you knew that they wouldn’t and won’t be shocked as to why they didn’t contact you, HOW DARE THEY not contact you? you’ll see.

beyonce6.jpgThere is no doubt that Beyoncé is THE best performer of our time, the only one who mastered the dance-and-sing combination perfectly. Anyways, this week I have been listening to a lot of her songs, whether solo or with DC. Here’s my Beyoncé playlist (for now):

Ring The Alarm
Her “fiercest” song, and the most anger-fueled one. It remains one of her best singles to date.

Why Don’t You Love Me
I have blogged about this song for oh-so-many times, and I still think more people should be aware of its amazingness. LISTEN TO IT.

Suga Mama
Damn, that was so good, I wanna buy him a short-set“, I’ve loved it when B’Day came out, and it still has its magic!

Hip Hop Star
Pure playas, pure playas“, I wish Beyoncé would release a quality album like her first one, but oh well.

Freakum Dress
This is a silly song, but it’s a silly song I love.

oh and add to that list “Nasty Girl“.



List: Summerheat, vol.1

thai-beach-1024x768.jpgI love this “list” thing, here is the first of the “Summerheat” lists/compilations. Enjoy it and give me your feedback:

BASEMENTPlug It In (Feat. JC Chasez) – Basement Jaxx [Download]
Basement Jaxx always spice up the summer, they’re essential in every summer-oriented playlist.

KelisBlindfold Me (Feat. Na$) – Kelis [Download]
Do you know this song? If you don’t then download it ASAP, it’s one of the best songs released in 2006, absolute FIRE.

MaydayWhen I Grow Up (Pussycat Dolls Cover) – Mayday Parade [Download]
The original song stormed the charts in the summer of 2008, I like this cover, it’s very original.

BrittFaster Kill Pussycat (Hip Hop Remix) – Brittany Murphy [Download]
Paul Oakenfield produced it, it more of a “Feat. Brittany Murphy”, this remix is very very summery and the song itself, if you don’t know it, is a firecracker.

ChrisTime (Feat. Chris Willis) – David Guetta [Download]
The intro sounds a lot like a RadOne/Lady Gaga production, the song itself is perfect for the summer, so.. grab it.

FantasyG Is For Girl (A-Z) – Ciara [Download]
Playful, smart, and an absolute energy-booster.

CMBe Ok (Feat. Will.I.Am) – Chrisette Michele [Download]
Found on her debut album “I Am”, a very summery track, a very clean, feel-good song. Perfect for mornings.



List: Live/Acoustic, vol.1

Here is a new list that I’m sure most of you will like and appreciate, hopefully. There goes:

GavinCop Stop (Live) – Gavin DeGraw [Download]
This has already been a favorite of mine when I first heard his album, and hearing it live makes it even better. Don’t miss on downloading it!

SiALentil (Live) – SiA [Download]
No matter what I say about this lady, it will still be paltry. She’s one of my all-time favorite artists.

NBPut Your Arms Around Me (Live) – Natasha Bedingfield [Download]
This is a very cute song, I love Natasha’s live performances. Her voice is not the best, but her emotions do get through.

SaraLove Song (Live) – Sara Bareilles [Download]
I like this better than the original one.

RSLive With Me (Feat. Christina Aguilera) (Live) – Rolling Stones [Download]
Fast forward to the 2:54 mark, her voice is immense.

ReginaLove Profusion (Live Madonna Cover) – Regina Spektor [Download]
I have always loved this song, Regina adds little fun to the song, I like this performance.

AWYou Know I’m No Good (Live) – Amy Winehouse [Download]
Who doesn’t love this song? One of Amy’s best.

List: Oldies

oldHere’s a compiled list of my favorite old classics, enjoy the olden golden day flashback.

bessieAfter You’re Gone – Bessie Smith [Download]
Of all the pioneer female singers, Bessie’s my favorite, something about her voice, and style of singing just compels me to concentrate while listening to her, I stopped playing her song while typing this because it was too distracting.

ettaSomething’s Got A Hold On Me – Etta James [Download]
There many other better Etta songs to post, but I chose this one specifically for that reason, it’s not as known as her other songs, but it’s as good. Take a listen!

elvisHard Headed Woman – Elvis Presley [Download]
My favorite Elvis song.

dionneAnyone Who Had A Heart – Dionne Warwick [Download]
This wouldn’t sound out of place on a Quentin Tarantino soundtrack, it’s a classic!

billieAs Time Goes By – Billie Holiday [Download]
You must remember this, a kiss is still a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh, the fundamental things apply, as time goes by“. There has been many renditions of this song, but my favorite has got to be Lady Day’s.

arethaDr. Feelgood (Love Is A Serious Business) – Aretha Franklin [Download]
Who doesn’t love this? The last breakdown (2:05) floored me when I first heard it.
