This is one of my very favorites – I’m not cool enough to be on TikTok, but I’ve had friends send me the amazing chanteuse Nati Dreddd – this here is one of the best. It combines the things I love – a drunken Scotsman, a kilt, saucy fun….and it sounds like a sea shanty. Love. ♥️
While perusing the gospel of Twitter this evening, I came across this post from Canadian media personality (and man I love) George Stroumboulopoulos:
The comments underneath are absolutely friggin’ DELIGHTFUL, and the crew that has posted have given me a track listing for the soundtrack of my day for tomorrow. Woohoo! Some of the gems that were mentioned include ‘Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen (cousin-by-marriage, coincidentally – fun fact!), ‘Wind Beneath My Wings’ by Bette Midler (posted by a big dude that looks like he eats metal for lunch), and way toooo many votes for ‘MmmmBop’ (which is a banger of a song, it has to be said). What would you pick for your off-brand guilty pleasure?
Since I don’t believe in guilty pleasures, I will totes own the shit songs that I love – I’m looking at you, Nickelback ‘Rockstar’, ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ (One Direction), and Celine Dion’s ‘That’s the Way It Is’ (somewhere in this world there exists video of me singing this at a karaoke night – that’s the reason I haven’t made much of an effort to become famous: I don’t want the video to see the light of day)…three tunes that I cannot help but sing along to – such perfect tunes. ARGH!
