I hope you all enjoyed another Spunky Week on this rock orbiting around the sun we call home!
This week's track is Raise Your Glass by P!nk. A classic pop hit from 2010 that sizzles and pops perfectly alongside the variety we have conjured up along the way with this list.
I love this song because it is a fight song and a call to arms for weirdos, freaks, and extravagant people...
Hey guys! Welcome back -
This week's track i'd like to dedicate to my mom. She introduced me to Huey Lewis & The News by playing it many times over the cassette player in the family's 1995 Chevy Lumina. This track not only has me nostalgic, but it also makes me smile and dig deeper into the mounds of great music form the 80's era of Rock N' Roll...
Welcome Back, Today's track is conveniently a love duet by DJDS featuring artists Khalid and Empress Of. I Like this track, its simple, but holds a powerful message. It paints a story perfectly for the listener to imagine two lovers passionately devoted to each other.
First and foremost I apologize for my small absence the past few weeks. All systems are go and we are back to submitting weekly tracks until further notice! This week's track is one of my favorite pump up songs. "Feels Great" Featuring Fetty Wap & CVBC really gives off nothing but positive vibrations and smiles for me as I reminisce on what it means to enjoy every moment.
'What would you do if you could walk on water?'
Hey guys, I hope another week has found you in a harmonious place. I've come to a sudden realization - the world is constantly force feeding us negative events, commentary, war, destruction, racism, and sometimes even deception. We never focus on the positive - we are too busy fixating on the negative.
I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and the turning of a stone into the new year! I appreciate you all so much, and am thrilled to play a small role in your routine as you tune into the Sizzle Bacon Playlist!
Welcome Back! Approaching the Holiday Season at breakneck speed here in the states has everyone rushed, stressing, and "adulting" something severely. I honestly can not think of a single track more important to be showcased this week than Walk The Moon's "Anna Sun".
This week's track is by one of my all-time favorite artists - Bruno Mars. Guys, I can't tell you how badly I've needed this track this week. I just came back from a mini vacation in the city of Los Angeles. The seventy degree weather and sunny skies almost tricked me into thinking it was May back here in the Midwest.
Sometimes life throws sand in your eyes, shoves you to the ground, and puts the whole weight of the world on top of you. In these moments you have a choice. You can stay down and let life zoom past you, or, you can lick your wounds and regain your balance by striding one foot in front of the other towards the goal line.
I must admit, It is getting increasingly hard to select tracks for this playlist. I am constantly absorbing the music around me and have found one major conundrum. There is just too much music that gets me excited and would fit perfectly in the sizzle bacon list. I find myself counting down the days to share day every week!
Another week is in the highlight reel as we drive on into whatever journey lay in front of us. This band is one of my all-time favorites because of their willingness and ability to stand in the face of oppression and authority and politely raise their middle fingers. Formed in 1982, Chumbawamba has undergone numerous stylistic changes, drawing an audience from various listeners and groups. One thing remained consistent for this British band, and that was their moral compass...
Another beautiful week of life, Sharing music never ceases to be anything less than the maraschino cherry atop this delicacy I get to experience alongside you all. It is my absolute honor to introduce to you this week's featured track: "Nothing In Your Life" by Nat Torn. At first, the funky rift immediately catches your ear and has you rhythmically bopping. Then, like a snake charmer, once Nat Torn's vocals hit, the listener has no choice but to succumb to a powerful and gripping Indie trance. Don't panic, your body and mind will once again rejoin, but only after completing this 5 minute journey of a lifetime.
Life is the single most daunting task we will ever go about doing. It's easy to fall into pessimistic cliches and believe in the snowball effect or the saying that when it rains it pours. The realistic fact of life is sometimes waking up just isn't easy. It has this crazy way of knocking you down, and when you're most vulnerable, kicking you harder. I would be lying if I told you there was a sure-fire bomb-proof way to combat this internal dilemma boiling over from time to time within everyone...
Look around your world, are you in a situation you'd rather not be in? Take a deep breath, reflect, and dive into that thing you've always wanted to do or call that person you've always wanted to take out. Life is too short to stand at the edge of the cliff of your hopes and dreams and not take that chance to jump...
This specific song isn't your typical happy-go-lucky pick me up title but it captures a story that is close to home for me, so i feel compelled to share it. This song tells a story of an individual far from home reminiscing about his family. It follows his ups and downs and how he is overcoming his situation...
No matter where in the world you woke up today. You've been blessed. You may have taken a step out of your building onto a busy London street to wave a taxi to work. Maybe you awoke before the sunrise to tend livestock on a beautiful Irish pasture overlooking the ocean. We've all been given a gift.
In a creative sense, the lifespan of a lightning strike has two very clear cycles. In the midst of a lightning storm you will see the birth of the strike. A sometimes trance inducing light show of immense and awe inspiring proportion...
Hey You! That's right, you…. No don’t look over your shoulder, I'm speaking to you! When was the last time you did something you always wanted to do, but were scared because you felt alone in your quest? Today, Yesterday, Last Year?
I gotta….. I gottta…. I gotta.. I gotta pocket got a pocket full of sunshine. I’m sure some of you guys remember how Emma Stone in “Easy A” absolutely drove the audience hysterical by her solo number dancing and singing along to a singing card playing this song. Natasha Bedingfield gave a gift to her audience by giving life to this song.
The title of this piece says it all. The American Authors really hit the nail on the head with this positively charged track that is the soul essence of this playlist’s conception. "Today is gonna be the best day of my life" is so holy to this playlist's commandments that it would be a sin to not include it within the foundation of its creation!
