Favorite albums of 2011...

 2011 is almost over can you believe it?! Strangely I havent bought that many albums this year. But here are my 3 favs...

Evanescence "Self-titled"

It's really hard to top The Open Door. But this is an amazing album! It's a good step forward for the groups newer sound. It is harder than anything they have ever done, which isnt a bad thing! Def more of an edge, but it still sounds like Evanescence. Amy's vocals are strong and powerful on this album. And the slow songs are hauting and gorgeous! You def HAVE to get the deluxe version as it has some extra songs. Which in my opinion are just as good as the rest of the album. It's hard for me to pick my fav songs/songs to check out, cause the whole album is awesome. But I'd have to say...End of the Dream, Lost in Paradise, My heart is Broken, Made of Stone, New way to Bleed, Serect Door, The Change, Sick, Swimming Home

Adele "21

If you haven't heard this album yet you are missing out. Immediately go out and buy it! I promise you won't be sorry. She has one of most raw, beautiful, pure, soulful, amaizng voices you will ever hear on this album. Every single song is amazing! As the album plays, her voice puts you in a trance. No need to skip songs, the album flows together very well. There is absolutely no negative things to say about this album. I'm mostly a rocker chick and my fav bands are my world, but this album has to be one of the best albums of this decade! As for my fav songs/songs to check out there are no favorite or best songs. But if you had to twist my arm I would say Turning Tables, Set fire to the Rain, and Someone like You, are my top favs. But you MUST check out the whole album! (Check out her live versions. AMAZING!)

Lady Gaga "Born This Way" (I hate the album cover so I put a better pic of her lol)-

The Fame Monster album is still my favorite. But this album has some great songs on it! I'm not going to lie though, it took me a while to like this album. But the more and more I listened I got hooked! Gaga is one of most unique talented people to come around in a long time. I love her crazy zaney nature and am amazed on how much she loves her fans. She really has a beautiful amazing powerful voice. To me it's very theatrical. Some people dont give her a chance so they miss how talented she is! My fav songs/songs to check out- You and I, ScheiBe, Bloody Mary, Government Hooker, Judas, Bad Kids, Marry the Night, and of course Born this Way 


What were your favorite albums of 2011?

Evanescence performance at Nobel Peace Prize Concert

Ohmigosh this game me the CHILLS! First they do one of my fav songs, it's called Lost in Paradise, It's so beautiful! And it SO describes how I've been feeling lately. I'll put the lyrics under the vid.
Then they do Bring Me To Life, I know you probably know the lyrics already so I wont post those. Enjoy this wonderful performance!

"Lost in Paradise"

 I've been believing in something so distant
As if I was human
And I've been denying this feeling of hopelessness
In me, in me

All the promises I made
Just to let you down
You believed in me, but I'm broken

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting
We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

As much as I'd like the past not to exist
It still does
And as much as I'd like to feel like I belong here
I'm just as scared as you

I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting
We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Run away, run away
One day we won't feel this pain anymore

Take it all away
Shadows of you
Cause they won't let me go

Until I have nothing left
And all I feel is this cruel wanting

We've been falling for all this time
And now I'm lost in paradise

Alone, and lost in paradise

Evanesence's "Secret Door" (my new song obsession!)

I am OBSESSED with this song right now! In a word...stunning! It takes you on a journey. I throw my Gaga beats headphones on (best headphones EVER!), as the song takes me to another world. The instrumental arrangement mixed with Amy's amazing voice is one of the most beautiful things I have ever heard. It's haunting and enchanting. This video will show you the lyrics as the song plays. I will also post the lyrics below. Give it a listen, its even better with headphones on. Better yet go out and buy the album to get the best quality of the song, you wont regret it!

Turn out the lights
Feed the fire till my soul breaks free
My heart is high as the waves above me
Don't need to understand
Too lost to lose
Don't fight my tears, cuz they feel so good
And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door

Look past the end
It's a dream, as it's always been
All life lives on if we've ever loved it

And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door
These lyrics are not mine! They belong to Evanescence
What do you think of the song?

Betsey Johnson Shoes

I am in LOVE with these shoes! I just love the ruffles and the heel has rhinestones on them! *dies* Plus I love Betsey Johnson (even though I cant afford her stuff.)Unfortuantely they are too expensive. And they have a 5 inch heel, I dont know if I could even handle wearing them. If I could try them on first maybe, but it would be online so you never know what they are really going to feel like. Plus thier a whopping $140. I could buy a lot of MAC cosmetics with that lol.

Arnt they beautiful?!

Britney Spears turns 30

Britney Spears, my guilty pleasure! Her music to me is just fun and youthful. Sometimes you need that fun escape in music. Love her or hate her, everyone knows who she is, and will always be a pop icon.

MTV fans deemed "Slave for you" to be her best music video.
As I do love it, its a super SEXY video. But I think Toxic is her best.....

What Britney video is your favorite? Tell me in comments

Corey Taylor singing "XM@S song"

For all you Grinches out there this is for you...

Victoria Secret Show

Did everyone catch the Victoria's Secret Show last night? I'm sure you did haha. Well I think women are beautiful and love looking at them like everyone else in the world. I love that they have muscle and curves and arnt just stick figures. There were some skinny ones though. There was one in paticular that was on the too skinny side. I could see her hip bones sticking out, eeek. There were some beautiful costumes on there!

My fav VS model in the show was Candice Swanepoel. I think shes stunning and actaully has curves!

      And of course Adriana Lima was there. This was my fav outfit of the night...

But its purple and black (my fav colors!) and anyone that knows me know my style so it makes sense that its my fav. I love the necklace piece!
Did you watch the show? What did ya think?

Corey Taylor "Snuff"

I saw Corey Taylor (singer of Stonesour and Slipknot) earlier this month. It was such an awesome show! He told some fun and funny stories about the music biz and other things. Read some experts from his new book. And did some acoustic songs, I'll be posting the videos here for you! I recorded this on my digital camera so its not amazing quality, but think its pretty damn good for a regular digital camera imo.  Enjoy!

This is him singing Slipknots "Snuff." I'm sure your thinking an acoustic Slipknot song? lol Well this song is definately different than thier usual hard rock sound. It's an amazing song. And Corey's soaring vocals are haunting and emotional. Sorry about my singing and moving around. It's my fav Slipknot song so I got excited. Plus I had a few drinks in me LOL. Tell me what ya think in comments.
