pants off dance off

Big day, ears, big day.  50 Shades of Grey soundtrack is available in iTunes (and Spotify…and probably by now, Youtube).  It’s out just in time for the 14th for all of you (Valentine) horndogs and (movie) super fans.  Say what you will about the book (and eventually about the film), but how can you not dig this compilation of songs with a roster that features Annie Lennox (who wowed us all at the Grammys on Sunday), The Weeknd (who oozes sex), rookie and cool girl Jessie Ware, Ellie, B, Sia, Stones, Awol, Frank Sinatra (wut.)?  Yes, I just listed practically all of the artists, but hey, you’ll understand why when you play this playlist through February.  What’s good JT?

Laters, baby,

Elastic Heart

I know j already posted about this song here, but it’s so good I need to make sure all of you listened to it when she told you to.  The sheer brilliance behind this song is not fair.  Between the combination of amazing artists and beautiful lyrics, it’s by far my favorite song on this soundtrack.  I’ve always been a huge fan of Sia and her hauntingly beautiful sound, which this song captures so perfectly.  Her unique and powerful vocals along with The Weeknd’s Abel Tesfaye create this elegant, yet painful song.  Let’s not forget about the epic beat by Diplo…who I’m also mildly obsessed with.

Moral of the story here?  This song is unfairly good.  Like it’s SO good, it’s not fair to anyone else making music these days.  It’s.  Just.  Not.  Fair.  a

He’s Back.

Okay, to be honest, I was a little scared when Eminem released his first single off his new album “Bezerk”–I was NOT  fan. I am more of a fan of Eminem from his “Recovery” days and not so much his “Slim Shady” days–call me crazy. However, his second single “The Monster” featuring Rihanna gave me hope. Marshall Mathers 2 was released on November 5 with 21 tracks including collaborations with Kendrick Lamar, Nate Ruess, Sia, and Skylar Grey. Of course the album has come with controversy but Eminem rarely apologizes for who he is. I’m still working my way through the album but I recommend you do the same. c.

catch this fiya

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (the movie) comes out in November.  Thank goodness there are more teasers for the musics than for the movie.  I didn’t think I could be more obsessed with The Hunger Games, but, unashamedly, I am.  (c, this better crack you!  Start reading, missy!)

  1. “Atlas” – Coldplay
  2. “Silhouettes” – Of Monsters and Men
  3. “Elastic Heart” – Sia (ft. The Weeknd & Diplo)
  4. “Lean” – The National
  5. “We Remain” – Christina Aguilera
  6. “Devil May Cry” – The Weeknd
  7. “Who We Are” – Imagine Dragons
  8. “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” – Lorde
  9. “Gale Song” – The Lumineers
  10. “Mirror” – Ellie Goulding

I Am Supposed To Be At A Gatsby Party

So I am going to give you all fair warning:  I am obsessed with “The Great Gatsby.”  It is one of my most favorite books of all time.

Here’s your next warning: I’m almost completely convinced I was born into the wrong time era.  I’m pretty sure I was supposed to be IN this time period, the 1920s, with Gatsby at all his swanky parties and wearing unbelievable jewelry.  It’s bordering on unhealthy.

I’m also planning on going to the movie in costume.  Say I won’t.

NOW.  Let’s just discuss the absolute EPIC-NESS of this soundtrack.  First and foremost, Jay-Z produced the ever loving life out of it and the lineup of artists on it will make you so excited you can’t even see straight.

Second: the majority of these artists have appeared somewhere, sometime on PB&Jams.  Did j, c and i essentially  predict one of the best soundtracks of all time to one of the soon to be best movies of all time?  Probably.  All in a day’s work, people.

Third: I don’t want to say I told you so, but I told you so. What did I tell you?  THAT I AM SUPPOSED TO BE AT A SWANKY PARTY WEARING SOME SICK DRESS AND FILTHY AMOUNTS OF DIAMONDS AND PEARLS EVERYWHERE.

I digress.

This sneak peak of the soundtrack will get you all sorts of happy and put you exactly where you need to be: at a damn good swanky-ass “roaring twenties” party.  This soundtrack takes you all the way back to this time period while channeling the modern party scene of today.  How do they do it?  It’s goddamn magic.  And Jay-Z.

Some favorites?  Emeli Sandé, Jack White, xx and Sia.

Check it out and get excited, peeps.  What will I be doing to prepare?  So glad you asked!  I’ll be sipping on Bourbon, wearing flapper dresses, practicing my dancing and classy flirtation with men.  Who am I kidding, I’ll read the book again and cry because I’m nostalgic for a time period.  Lord help me, somebody has toa

P.S. I realize I haven’t even touched on the casting for this film.  That is all saved for another post when I can catch my breath over this soundtrack.
