Music: Enjoy The Beat…

Spread the love

“Without music, life would be a mistake.” Friedrich Nietzsche

Music: Enjoy The Beat... Pharrell, Katy Perry and Beyonce

Music: Enjoy The Beat… Pharrell, Katy Perry and Beyonce and more

Pharrell Williams – Happy (Official Music Video)

Katy Perry – Dark Horse (feat. Juicy J) (Official) ft. Juicy J

Beyoncé – Drunk in Love (Explicit) ft. JAY Z

I’ve always fancied myself a music lover and wanna be entertainer. At one point in my life, I loved taking charge at parties and rocking the tunes… Music is truly a pure form of joy that each of us can interpret anyway we wish. I’d like to share a few songs I like and hopefully you can add yours in the comments. What type of music do I like? My taste is pretty far reaching. It has to speak to me first… So enjoy a sampling of songs I love… I put Pharrell first because HAPPY is exactly what music makes me feel. Come back later for more!

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.” Victor Hugo

Fela Kuti-Water no get enemy (H2O Africa official video)

Best African Music Mix – 2014

Hot Afrobeats mix 2013/2014: Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana Azonto, Togo, Skelewu African Music and more

I enjoy African music too and because there are a number of festivals this year, I thought I should add a couple of my favorites to this list. I love Fela’s music very much and he was always in the forefront of African music. The other two videos offer you a nice selection of music from the continent. If you’ve ever wanted to sample some music from long standing African Divas, I’d recommend these two posts of mine: Sweet Sensations I: African Divas Sing… and Sweet Sensations II: African Divas Sing… So enjoy the tunes and check back for more later.

“Music is everybody’s possession. It’s only publishers who think that people own it.” John Lennon

Justin Timberlake – Mirrors

A Great Big World & Christina Aguilera – Say Something

I had to add a few more that make me stop whatever I’m doing and enjoy the beat… What kind of music do you like? Do Share as I’m always looking for new tunes. TY!
This post was inspired by a prompt from WP Daily Post: We Got the Beat
Have you ever played in a band? Tell us all about that experience of making music with friends. If you’ve never been in a band, imagine you’re forming a band with some good friends. What instrument do you play in the band and why? What sort of music will you play?  Photographers, artists, poets: show us PERFORMANCE.

Positive Motivation Tip: Music makes the world go round and no matter where we come from, we can move to the beat of music… Let the beat go on!

    I love so many different genres. I really love acoustic, singer songwriters. They are definitely my favorite artists.

    I love music, especially if it has a good beat. And if it has a good beat, I have to start dancing.
