Hi Steph and everybody in BitterSuite Land I hope that you had a really good Christmas with your family unless you had to scale it back to a few family members gathering around the Christmas table for their Christmas dinner as well as celebrating the New Year apart as well which can be so annoying if your family are so far apart that you have to use the video calling system to talk to them on the line instead and for me.
I had a really quiet Christmas with my family before the corona virus kicked in like a mule and it took my beloved daddy away from me and his beloved wife of 52 years of marriage together which is nothing to compare to other marriages that ended up in divorce which is no fun for anyone indeed.
So I have some advice to tell you what to do with your love ones if there are your mother, father, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces, grandpas, and grandmas, who are so far away is to hold onto them tightly as you can and also tell them that you love them very much and don’t let this damn corona virus win in the end because losing someone so precious to you would hurt too much for days on end that you have to put on a really brave face to hide all that emotions that you are pouring out so much.
So here am I your virtual DJ welcoming you back to the next instalment Michelle Musical Lock Down Blog which I’m providing another fabulous playlist for you to dance to or just listen to that will make you feel a lot better after listening to a very mellow song with or without the person that you really love wholeheartedly indeed so I better get started with my musical playlist for the blog, so here goes another musical selection from your virtual DJ, so I’m starting with:
No.1: Signed Sealed Delivered by Blue featuring Angie Stone with the legendary Stevie Wonder providing some really slick and very smooth vocal styles to this legendary track from the album called Guilty which has Stevie playing his harmonica on this track which has some really slick and very silky r and b sound provided by this three way collaboration which I really like so much together which makes it sound so summery indeed so Stevie lay some really slick funky sounds on me please.
No.2: I’m Back for More by Bobby Womack featuring LuLu, which has a really smooth and swanky r and b vibe to it which makes it sound so picture perfect indeed so enjoy this really lovely song because I really like the collaboration between both singers which gives this song so much class to it wholeheartedly.
No.3: Footsteps Following Me the extended version by Frances Nero which is a really fabulous song with some really jazzy sections to it some really funklicious piano rifts running right through the song so please enjoy the very silky vocal skills of her voice which will definitely mesmerise you in a heartbeat because I prefer the extended version to 7 inch version which fades out too quickly while you are enjoying the song so much so that’s why I prefer the 12 inch version because you can hear so much more of the song while you are listening to it so enjoy.
No.4: Just give me a Reason by Pink featuring Nate Ruess from the album called The Truth about Love, which is a very beautiful song with Pink and Nate’s silky voices combining as one on this beautiful love song and I really do love this beautiful collaboration together which sound so really beautiful to hear their voices entwine on this track.
No.5: Love song for a Vampire by Annie Lennox, which is a very beautiful and very haunting love song with Annie’s haunting vocal styles and harmonies which are so beautiful to hear throughout the song which will have you in a trance with this style of vocal singing which I really do love this song because of its haunting capacity so please enjoy this song.
No.6: If this ain’t love by Groovejet featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor from the album called Kitchen Disco the greatest hits, which is so groovy indeed with Sophie’s vocals which are really smooth and very groovy to listen to her voice which is so distinctive that you can’t miss it indeed when she starts singing which is so damn cool indeed.
No.7: Keep coming Back by Richard Marx from the album called Rush street, which is one of my very favourite tracks on the album so far with Luther Vandross’s silky vocal style which is so smooth and very dreamy with Richard’s rasping huskiness to his voice which makes the song so dramatic indeed because I really love singing along with it because I really can reach the high notes didn’t you know that I can sing the high notes on this iconic song.
No.8: Chained to the Rhythm by Katy Perry featuring Skip Marley from the album called Witness, which is quite a really wicked song to listen to the Jamaican vibes of Skip Marley’s vocal style on this song while Katy provides the vocal drama to this song which sound so summery indeed, so roll on to the summertime with a really cold and refreshing drink in your hand while getting fanned by your partner who you love so much indeed so enjoy the song folks.
No.9: Cheap Frills by Sia featuring Sean Paul from the album called This Is Acting, and I know that I chose it before and that was without the vocal skills of Sean Paul giving it some licks with his smooth Jamaican vibe while counter acting Sia’s Australian vocal style on this track which sounds so good which I really do like very much indeed because of their collaboration which is so good to hear their voices blending in on this track.
No.10: Hyperactive by Thomas Dolby, which is a tongue and cheek song which will have you singing along in a very Hyperactive way which is so funny and sometimes in your face as a wind up song to get you going because Thomas knows how to get everybody up and dancing to this track in a heartbeat if you sing like an skeleton in that video too so enjoy it everybody.
No.11: Sweet but a Psycho by Ava Max, which is a very soulful song with Ava’s sweet and silky vocal style giving this song so much gusto which is so good to hear a song about love in a very different way.
No.12: I Scare Myself by Thomas Dolby, which is a very soulful song which will definitely mesmerise your soul while his soulful melodies and harmonies wash over you while you are still listening to the track which will send you to sleep in a heartbeat.
No.13: Wish that I could let you love me by Rita Ora from the album called Phoenix which is a very funklicious song to listen to when you are madly in love with someone so special to you that they will capture your heart.
No.14: Your Song by Rita Ora from the album called Phoenix which is a very uplifting song about falling in love with that person that you had your heart set on for absolute ages and this song is so cool with Rita’s smooth vocal style giving this song so much stylish vocals.
No.15: Stick with You by The Pussycat Dolls from the album called PCD which is a very laid back track which I really do love very much indeed and especially when Nicole Scherzinger sings the lead vocals of this very beautiful love song with plenty of gusto from the other singers who are supporting her when she sings this song that I really do love so much indeed so enjoy folks.
No.16: The Entertainer by Alesha Dixon from the album called The Entertainer, which is so wicked that reminds you that there is a circus in town with Acrobats and tightrope walkers and any other circus acts doing their thing while you are watching them perform and Alesha’s singing voice is so pure that you can hear every note that she sing really clearly indeed.
No.17: Let’s face the Music and Dance by Natking Cole was first release in 1964 and then re-released again in 1994 and it is one of my very favourite songs of all time because of the brass section accompanying the string section and the organ part gives it so much gusto which sounds so absolutely wicked to hear something so classical indeed because I always loved this song so much because of the orchestral arrangement which sounds so really good to me so enjoy the song folks.
No.18: can’t go on by Nik Kershaw from the album called Oxymoron which sounds so summery and very sweet to hear something really different from Nik who wrote this song which has a hint of reggae which sounds so really good when his daughter Izzy plays clarinet on this song and also provides the backing vocals to it which sounds really brilliant.
No.19: Can’t Get it Back by Misteeq from the album called Eye Candy which is an absolutely wicked song that has so much characater to it when you watch the video with the judge and the jury are rocking along to this track and the video is absolutely hilarious to watch when the judge’s wig comes flying off while he is boogieing on down along to this song which I absolute love when the 3 Mis-teeq girls are in the dock pleading their case about a cheating lover who did them wrong in the first place, so you better check out this awesome video and enjoy folks.
No.20: Horny by Mousse T featuring Hot and Juicy which is so funkliciously good that you can dance to it and I don’t really mind what version that you play as long as people can get up and have a right good boogie to this beat which I really love so much indeed so enjoy this track everybody because I’m going to enjoy it too.
No. 21: Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler which was a world wide smash hit in 1983 from the album called Natural force which is a very beautiful song with really strong lyric base when you hear the other verse to it instead of hearing just one verse and a chorus twice over so that’s why I really prefer this extended version instead of that shorten version of this song, so please enjoy Bonnie’s totally husky and rasping vocals to this track which is totally filled with so much emotion.
No.22: What is Love by Howard Jones from the album called Human’s Lib which is one of my very favourite song from Howard because I really do like the panpipe section in this song which gives it so much structure while Howard is playing the keyboards on this iconic track which has so much going on.
No.23: Body on Me by Rita Ora featuring Chris Brown which is a very fabulous r and b song and I also like their collaboration with their voices blending entwine which makes the song sound so dramatically good to listen while you are chilling out with the one person that you love wholeheartedly indeed and this song is so dramatical when you hear it played on the radio or on a music channel somewhere on the television too so enjoy folks.
No.24: Flava by Peter Andre from the album called Natural which is a really funklicious track that will definitely get you up and dancing to this funky track which has some really funky r and b vibes running right through this song which has a really summery vibe that you will make you think of some hot summer sunshine on the beach drinking a really cold and refreshing drink with someone that you love who is very special to you.
No.25: I See You by Leona Lewis from the motion picture called Avatar which was released in the cinema in 2009 and this song came on at the end of the movie and I really do love this song so much because of Leona’s powerful voice which give this song so much gusto when she sings it so emotionally which will mesmerise you in a heartbeat because its so emotional to hear this song.
No.26: Room in your Heart by Living in a Box, which is a very powerful ballad with Richard Derbyshire’s rasping husky vocals giving it so much gusto to the song which I really like so much when I hear the opening bars of the song and then it kicks in so dramatically with the harmonies mixing in with Richard Derbyshire’s husky vocals which gives it so much emotion to the song that it will have mesmerised in a trance.
No.27: Left to my own Devices the extended Operatic version by The Pet Shop Boys from the album called Retrospective, which I really love the operatic version of this song so much and thanks to my very dear old friend Sian for recommending this song to me because I really do love the string arrangement on this song accompanying the brass section keyboard and some really funky drum beat that gives it that dramatical feel to the song with Neil Tennant’s silky vocals dripping all over this track with speak sing style which is so stylish because it is one of my very favourite songs from the pet shop boys.
No.28: Holiday by Madonna from the album called Madonna, which is a very funklicious track which will get you up and dancing along to this iconic tune which was released in 1983 but this song is one of Madonna’s finest works of all time.
No.29: Smooth Operator by Sade from the album called Diamond Life which is one of my very favourite song especially when she starts speaking the opening lines of the song before she properly sings the song with some wicked sax rift throughout the song which gives it so much dramatic feel to the song with her very silky voice which melts like velvet when she starts singing this iconic song which will have you mesmerised in a trance so enjoy the song everybody.
