I be jammin man!

Haha, didn't you know I'm Jamaican?  The other day Meme from Makeup and Meme posted some music that she was listening to hype her up.  I listen to music when I shower and when I do my hair and makeup and I had thought about sharing with you some of my favorite music to listen to and Meme's post helped me to move that decision a little faster haha.

So here's some of the music I like to listen to while I get ready (some do have swear words in them, not a lot, but some)!

"Video" by India.Arie
I love this song because it's such a great, positive song about loving yourself the way you are.  

"Hey Mama" by the Black Eyed Peas
I love the energy of this song.  It makes me want to move haha.

"Massive Attack" by Nicki Minaj
I love the beat of this song.  The video is a little bizarre with the contortionist guys, but I still like it!

"Mmmbop" by Hanson
Yup, you read it right.  Haha I still like this song and I'm not ashamed to admit it!  Well, maybe I am a little ashamed but I still like it haha.

"Womanizer Remix" Britney Spears ft. Busta Rhymes and TI
I don't know how this song survived without Busta on it.  For real, even if you don't like what he's saying, you have to bob your head to the beat!  And I just like TI.

"Like a Boy" Ciara
I like this song but the video makes it so much better.  Chick can dance.

"Upgrade U" Beyonce ft. Jay Z
Haha again, I like this song more because of the video.  When Beyonce dresses up as Jay and mouths the words... genius.  Pure genius.  And Beyonce is hot, a little dramatic, but it's ok.

"Hope" Twista ft. Faith Evans
I love this song.  I could listen to it all day.

And last but not least, maybe there's something wrong with me but I love the songs where the woman singing is getting revenge on the man who cheated on her haha
"Before he Cheats" Carrie Underwood
"Him 'Em Up Style" Blu Cantrell

Haha I think that's enough.  What are your favorite songs to listen to??  Do you like fast songs?  Slow songs? Inspirational songs?  Hardcore rock?  Hymns?  I have a great appreciation for all music but when I'm getting ready for my day I really like songs with a fast beat or a positive message unless I'm grumpy haha.


  1. omg!!!! I luv every single one of these songs too.. also luv songs about where woman gets revenge!! I luv to listen to music when I do almost anything..especially getting ready in the morning and doing my makeup
