Keeping it Simple

Idol-try

21 Mar

Gosh, darnit, I love my Idols! I’m really silly that way. You’ll have to indulge me. I apologise in advance!

Of course, my boy didn’t disappoint:

Oh, that voice. Oh, those lyrics. Oh, I love my boys!

But, hells bells. These girls are friggin AWESOME!

okay, I’ve said my bit.

These 3 rock my socks! (geddit? three… idolatry… idol-try… I’ll wait while you catch up….)

I do amuse myself!!

(oh, and my ovaries did a little jiggle when one of my old boys made a guest appearance. I’m still a cook-sista!!)

I am a sucker!

21 Mar

He, he… it’s Americal Idols again. And y’all know I love that show.

Although I love the girls this year (for a change), there are a few guys (of course) who rock my world.

Man, I love my boys… 🙂

Especially Mr. Lee DeWyze. Lips of an Angel. Man, I loved this performance. Of course, before the show was out, this was already in my itunes.

Last week, he did Fireflies (a song which has been in my itunes since July last year, long before it hit the charts)

I don’t think he’s hit his straps yet, and I hope he is around for a little longer… 🙂

I can’t wait to see what he does tonight. This boy is headed for big things…

I just love my boys!!

Wild at Heart

20 Mar

Much to my despair, I am enjoying the odd country song these days.

**sigh** what have I become??

My favourite tune of the moment? “Wild at Heart” by Gloriana.

I pump it up and it just makes me feel so darn good. So full of optimism. So full of faith.  

Wild At Heart Lyrics

… I ain’t here to do anything half-way
Don’t give a damn what anyone might say
I just wanna free fall for a while

That rebel moon is shinin’
Those stars burn like diamonds
Hell bent on chasin’ down that crazy spark
I’ll follow you where you’re leading
To the first sweet taste of freedom
You got me runnin’ baby,
Wild at heart

O-oh, that’s alright
I’ve got forever on the tip of my tongue…

My vision of the future is starting to crystallise. And it fills me with faith and hope and optimism.

I want to follow that crazy spark. I want to free fall for a while. That rebel moon is shining… I’ve got that sweet taste of freedom and I’m running… Wild at heart!
