Musical Monday: 5x Bodyparts

Head, shoulders, knees and toes.
Hoofd schouders, knie en teen.
Tête, épaules, genoux et pieds.

The Dutch version used to be one of my favorite being a small child. Probably because of the dance. I can very vividly remember doing this song over and over again on one of our holidays.
I was reminded of the use of bodyparts because of the whole Anaconda-scandal. Let's see which bodyparts make good music.

Manhattan Rhytm Kings - Happy Feet

No list is complete without a little jazz. Happy Feet is a song from the movie with the same name. Though that one is a very white version and doesn't swing nearly as good as this Manhattan Rhytm Kings version. The song is on the soundtrack of the Aviator, thus proving again, the one selecting the music for that movie is a genius. Why wiggle your butt, if you can move your happy feet?

Shakira ft. Wycleff Jean - Hips Don't Lie

Being Latina, Shakira surely knows how to move her hips, as she is very keen to demonstrate in this video. The song is sometimes a bit hard to understand, but basically the two are saying; body talks, but in a more sexy way. Yes, when you know how to dance, you're one step ahead of all the rest of the girls trying to get a man.

Meagan Trainor - Lips are movin'

If your lips are movin', you're lyin' is the very nice message of this song, that reminds me very much of Trainors first single, All about that bass which is about her whole body and also not the nicest thing anyone ever sang about. Buy hey, we'll forgive her, because both of these songs are so catchy, I very often wake up with them stuck in my head. 

Kylie Minogue - In My Arms

I have a confession to make. I very much enjoy the music of Kylie Minogue. And very handy for this list, Kylie sings a lot about bodyparts. Can't get you out of my head, In your eyes, 2 Hearts, Hand on your heart, Put your hands up and this one, In my arms. The video is very Kylie futuristic, modern and colorful. 

Kormac - Wash My Hands

Kormac makes amazing music. He is one of the best known electro-swing artists in the world. This song isn't much about the lyrics, but this list is rather bogus anyways, so just enjoy this happy little piece of devine music.

Musical Monday: Awesome songs for awesome people I

Thinking what to blog about every monday has become a little difficult. So I thought I'd just choose a song most times, instead of a group of an artist, because there are a lot I could call my favorite, but not that much. For this first edition the newest song by Stromae that I both love for the song, the video and the message behind it (I assume the translation is correct). Let's wake up people and love birds, not tweets. 

Stromae - Carmen

Home Sweet Home: Verhuizen

Je hebt het misschien al gemerkt op deze zeer stille blog: we hebben het druk. Binnenkort gaan we namelijk verhuizen. Ons fijne stekkie in Maastricht zullen we verhuizen voor een overheerlijk stekkie in Hulsberg, midden in het Zuid-Limburgse land. Een deel van boerderij van zo'n 250 jaar oud, Veel te doen dus, en ook veel verassingen. Ik hoop dus dat je geduld hebt, want uiteindelijk zal er een hoop zijn om te laten zien en om te vertellen.
You may have noticed by the silence of this blog, that we're very busy. Soon we will be moving. We'll be leaving our nice place in Maastricht for a super lovely place in Hulsberg, in the midst of the countryside of South-Limburg. It's part of a farmhouse that's about 250 years old. A lot needs to be done and we find a lot of 'surprises'. So I hope you'll be patient, because there will be a lot to show and tell in the end.
