Friday Fun: Songtime
Happy Friday, friends! We made it through another week. Granted, this was technically a short week for me, but I maintain that “short” weeks often feel much longer than a regular week (because life just likes to me a dbag like that, haha) so it’s still a victory to make it to the end. I don’t really have a whole lot for you today, so I thought I’d just have fun with today. Longtime followers of this blog may know that I occasionally like to make a fool of myself on the interwebs by putting my very poor guitar skills to use and singing covers of songs.
You might also know that last week I impulse purchased a ukulele, which was pretty much the best decision I’ve made in a long time. It’s super fun, and has me wanting to continue with the aforementioned self-foolery. So, I recorded another song, and for those of you who are truly bored and/or have headphones at work, feel free to take a listen! I’ve still only actually owned this uke for a week, so don’t judge my skillz (or lack thereof) too harshly.
I’ve also re-posted the other songs I’ve recorded so you can see how far I’ve come in both quality of songstressing and hair length, hahahaha. They’re posted in reverse chronological order… with a special bonus at the end from my senior year of high school, when I sang at my graduation with the a cappella trio I was in. And yes, I attended a private school in Canada for my senior year of high school. Matthew Perry went there too. Not at the same time. OKAY!
Stay, Stay, Stay by Taylor Swift
The Happy Song by Kate Micucci
The A Team by Ed Sheeran
If I Die Young by The Band Perry
Say Goodbye by Ben Powell (Yep, THAT Ben Powell. My brother wrote the song for his own high school graduation in 2001, and then we repurposed it a cappella style in 2005. )
I’m kind of thinking that I want to make this a semi-regular thing, assuming that I continue to get better/less lazy at it. If you guys aren’t interested in me continuing to post this sort of sillyness here on the blog, just let me know, but I’ll probably do it for myself anyway. So, that being said, if you have any specific song requests or recommendations, I’m going to start keeping a list!
Again, happy friday all! And don’t forget that there’s still time to enter the Pure Protein giveaway — the winner will be drawn on Monday!
