bwt, what does darling sound like?

Guys! I tweetered this the other day and lurved the responses so much I gotta blog it. Know how one of the best ways people tell other people about theirselves is through they're blog music? Even though my playlist is awesome and says alot about me and my hip taste, some of my e-besties are all, its time to change the song's.

Suggestions pleeeze!

Keep in mind, I like awesome.

Hmmm.... Something by Archie or the Cookster? What about Miley's latest single, "Party in the USA?" (nodding your head--swinging your arms--shaking your hips *in a totally modest way*)

Francis Family said...

Party in the USA!! Miley Cyrus is the bomb!

Kari said...

Nothing is hawter than hYmNs :)

The Rudy Family said...

The new Black Eyed Peas is really good. Any thing from there I would recommend.
Brandie

Julie de Azevedo said...

Anything Julie de Azevedo {Window to His Love, Pray For Rain, EFY stuff} will totally remind JJTW of his awesome mission!!! EVERYBODY listens to her/me on their mish cuz I'm one the few chicks under 50 who write/sing spirtchul music that some mission prezs will allow.

Crescent Les said...

More Colbie Caillat. And David Archuleta. And don't feel like you have to give up on Taylor Swift just because we all hate it! Those three artists are pretty much my little sister's entire listening repertoire, and you should listen to her.

A Good Husband said...

I rlly miss the Backstreet Boyz. How about "Quit Playing Games with My Heart?"

L.Jo said...

You should totally do a retro theme and have your prom song and other special songs from high school. It'll be like a TAMN scrapbook for our ears!!!

Either that or all Taylor/Miley, all the time.

WhiteEyebrows said...

Your music is sooooo last year. I thought TAMN was MUCH more hip than this.

Jennie said...

I think you should do either an all IDOL playlist (only Kelly, Carrie, Jordin, David, etc.) OR an all LDS artist playlist (David Archuleta, Brooke White, Julianne Hough, the Killers, JPL, Christina Aguilera (her grandma was LDS), Jewel (raised LDS) -- you know LDS by association...

Jillian said...

I like L.Jo's idea. A little 2000s flash-back would be fun.

Carol said...

What about the Tab Choir. I mean, don't you want this blog to reflect your spirtuality and such.

The B said...

Yay for GLEE!!! I second Party in the USA!

Bekah said...

how about some Death Cab for Cutie since they're on the New Moon soundtrack and that's SO awesome?

OR prove your excitement for New Moon to come out in 40 something days (no one is counting) and play a kick back to the Twi Soundtrack... Bella's Lullaby?

Beckie Perry said...

I just thought of Popular from Wicked!!! What could be more appropriate?

Emily said...

halo by beyonce...nuff said

Mishqueen said...

I'm TOTALLY sure a WAY COOL and RYCHUS woman like you has a GOL DARN good spirichal feel for the songs that have been SUPER overplayed lately! It doesn't make them annoying or cliche--NO NO; the more you listen to COOL songs, the COOLER you are!! You should even ADMIT humbly that you were listening to it before it was cool (that makes people think you MADE it cool!).

I already totully want to BE you!

Charly said...

Hot 'n' Cold by Katy Perry.
Somewhere Over the Rainbow/What a Wonderful World
Will I wait for you from Saturday's Warrior
Every Time we Touch by Cascada
anything by OneRepublic

Charly said...

Holy moly you run in the big leagues, girl. With a personal plug from Julie de A., how can you say no???

Who's next, Sally de FoRd?! BAH!

Matt and Jennae Porter said...

I'm not from Zion but to me nothing says "I'm from Zion" more than having Jericho Road on your playlist!!!

Ashley Welling said...

Why do you want to put music on the blog?? It is sooo annoying! If my sound is turned on and I go to a site with music....I always turn my sound off.

However...putting music on here is sooo you! Here are some suggestions:
1. I Gotta Feeling--Black Eyed Peas
2. Down--Jay Sean ftr. Lil Wayne
3. Party In the USA--Miley Cyrus
4. You Belong With Me--Taylor Swift

Kyle and Alli said...

I second any picks from recent Glee episodes. They are all the rage in the blog world, haven't you heard?

Aynna banahna said...

I'm not sure you could handle real awesome. So, sorry, I have no suggestions for you :)

American Fork said...

Owl City - Fireflies
Miley - Party in the USA

corinnie said...

I would go with John Mayor, Archie, and Colbie

Haylee Abney said...

Your new music is ok, (good thing you have a Glee song on there, LOL!) BUT. What us Mia Maids listen to right now is all top-10 hip hop that is all dirty yet clean. (just like how there are modest bikini's). Hope that helps you become a little more hip, but don't worry you're sooo hip already:]

PS "darling" is pronounced like DAR-lingg. Make sure you really exaggerate the "g" at the end, so it's almost like you're saying "dar-link", but not really!!!

The Mostess said...

NKOTB or die.

Jeannie said...

If you put yawny hymns on your playlist that means I can only visit your blog on Sundays.

And that wouldn't be good at ALL.

Jessica said...

I think you should give a shout out to LDS artists and play some Donny Osmond and The Killers. Maybe some Hilary Weeks too.

Tricia said...

RUH ROH. i'm looking at your playlist.....and uh, call me crazy, but have you pulled JJWT's cell phone records lately? OR maybe you already HAVE!! :X

Maybe you should add Pink's latest: Please, Don't Leave Me.

Brian and chelsea said...

You meant to put the word "to" in between the words people and tell in the second sentence. I'm thinking that was perhaps a truly unintentional convention error, not just one done to mock the simple-minded and/or grammatically lazy.

song expert said...

I can't believe your songs are not ALL halloween themed? Did you for get to change your wreath and put up cobwebs and fake an real pumkins an mini pumkins all over the place inevery corner too?!!! It seems like your not trying. Are you depressed? Your sign is awesome though.

song expert said...

also I can't believe you haven't had "my lipgloss is poppin my lipgloss is cool" song. seriously, cause that is what the song says over and over again.

Emily said...

Hullo?! WICKED!

carissa said...

omgosh... blog music is WAYYY annoying. I think my music is more awesome than everybody so I have to turn theirs off when I go to their blogs or it TOTALLY ruins my meticulous itunes playlist.

Jenilyn said...

Since SOOOO many ppl visit your blog daily it would be a good idea to switch it up so you can show ALL aspects and sides of your hip-ness and taste for la musica. either way....do it to it!

Jenn said...

Have you checked out the Glee cast soundtracks on i-tunes? Their Journey cover of Don't Stop Believin' is awesome. Oh, and don't worry about changing all of the songs. I keep adding to our playlist and just put them on shuffle. That way people aren't hearing the same songs each time they see the blog.

Love reading your blog!

teresa said...

One word. MIKA.

clan of the cave hair said...

I have marinated on this all night and I have it!

Darling totally sounds like that big fat Hawaiian dude singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow".

Its the DEFINITION of darling.

sarahgurl said...

Finally you asked my opinion!!! anything by Jack Johnson--he's a way hot surfer you know!

GladysIcanbee said...

TIme to let your light, er, voice shine and record your own music for your blog.

Little Lovables said...

why not ike punked out church hymns?

nothing more (sac)relegious than god turned pop

Katie Kerr Wrede said...

Rihanna, Britney, Beyonce and Kelly Clarkson--totally rockin'!

Ariel said...

Thriller is a way awesome way to celebrate Halloween and memorialize Michael.

dharvey said...

Love you, but the music is really awful. Miley and Britney are bubble-gum c**p for 15 year olds. Either turn off the music entirely, or find something more sophisticated. You're not a teenybopper anymore. XOXO -- D.

labibi said...

The Mollies!

www.myspace.com/themolliesmusic

I'm pretty sure they even have a spooky song....

dharvey said...

Oops! It just occurred to me that the music is part of the satire; therefore the music is supposed to be as banal, inane, and provincial as possible. Okay, then. Rev up Kelly and Miley. And Archie. Sooooo adorable!!! Totally !!! XOXO - D.

Mrs. Clark said...

Hey, I liked the Taylor Swift, maybe because the only place I heard it was on TAMN's blog!

Melissa said...

Super freak. SHe's super freaky... She's a super freak!

Molly in the Jello Belt said...

You should put on the twinsies favorite Primary songs!

Frog Prince Las Vegas said...

Ummmm....that "Big Fat Hawaiian Dude" is Israel Kamakawiwo'ole AKA Brother Iz.

Brooke said...

There is a real, actual CD out there called "Janice Kapp Perry's Celtic Variations." I dare you to find it. Puts most other inspirational fluffrock to shame.

Catherine Agnes said...

I love that you misspelled an abbreviation.

By way the, eh?

Sunny said...

I'm rilly surprised not to see Peter Breinholt or Ryan Shupe. Hello? Did you never go to EFY or any outdoor concert in Utah in the last fifteen years?

Jensen said...

I actually wanted to comment on your poll TAMN. I know that in Zion the more kiddies you have, the more righteous you are, but you should definitely be done having kids by thirty. Thirty is enough kids, tops. :)

Team Carroll said...

Luv the Glee addition!

Lines Family said...

You know. It is getting closer to Christmas. We need to get in the mood. I think you should do some Christmas tunes.

Renny said...

You make me ashamed that I have a playlist on my blog. Also, ashamed that I sometimes blog why I chose to post that song that week.
I'm officially a loser. :(

Can I please take comfort in the fact that I'm NOT a Mormon MOMMY blogger, and in fact am a sinner because I graduated from BYU sans husband and am now in law school, on the EAST COAST?

Redemption... please?

Brooke said...

Did you mean "btw" or am I missing another acronym?

debbie said...

Gotta have THRILLER for Oct. then anything you have ever sung to on the radio, recorded in a real recording studio, sung by you. They have these great recording studios in Orem that all my friends go to when someone says they did a good job at the last fireside...

Megz said...

So glad you axed! I was getting a little vomitous everytime I heard the same Taylor song whenever I checked in.
I'm all about righteous hip hop. Let me know if you find any!

Sadie said...

Hate to say it Eternal lil Sis, I TURN OFF my speakers when check out your bloggy. *fown type smile*

everyone knows that all young(ish) LDS women are always looking for that next big thing before their neighbors find it just so they can already be "in-the-know" when it finally becomes mainstream, whether it be music, fashion, food, crafts, etc. it reinforces their superiority. you need indie and "underground" artists, ones that aren't quite mainstream yet, but will be soon. or even better, never go mainstream, officially making you a music connoisseur who appreciates true musical talent, not the rubbish churned out for the mindless masses.

lykke li, uh huh her, little boots, santigold, the ting tings, mgmt, kerli, feist, olivia broadfield, sofi bonde, passion pit, kate havnevik and sia are worth looking into to name a few.

Carolyn said...

I love your survey about being done having kids by thirty tops. I wish I had a dime for every LDS woman I've heard say this. I'm 30 and not done, so I guess I'm in the "gross" category. I am curious about what those people really think is gross about having kids after 30.

Sarra said...

beyonce's single ladies. definitely. to remind the other guys in your life that they missed out on a golden opportunity when they didn't want to fork over serious moolah to buy exclusive rights to TAMN with a kick-a diamond.

Lizzie Fizzie said...

OMG TAMN, since i'm ur bestie thats livin the hip life going 2 college take my advice! Play the new stuff that's like just barely out!-Fallin 4 You by Colbie C. . Selena Gomez stuff, cuz she's so funny. Some old goodies like Jesse McCartney's song w/ Ludacris. And of course my gurl Miley. :)

Julia said...

Vickism9, I love how you include MGMT, Santigold, and Feist among "non-mainstream" artists. It's so cute.

It reminds me of an interview I read where some actress said she loved this "little band called The Postal Service, which not many people have heard of." Um, sweetie, everyone has heard of them.

TAMN would never love anything non-mainstream. Weird!

Lisa B. said...

Jonas brothers, or any other band that the guys wear girl pants. I mean that's HOT!!

Sarah said...

Aah, take it off shuffle, please! I want to be able to pick the song I listen to. Thanks!!

vickism9 said...

julia-
thank you for pointing out something i'm already very aware of. i do know that those groups are quite well-known by most, but since her blog is a satire directed mostly at LDS women in UTAH, i've found that many in that state have yet to be exposed to even the more well-known of the list i provided. for instance, when "the ting tings" were barely beginning to get airtime on the radio stations in utah (maybe around 5-6 months ago) their US- released single had already reached played-out status on the coasts and other areas of the country, obviously not to mention the UK. it all just depends on the specific group that is being discussed, and in this case it's women in the US state of utah.

i'm surprised by how long the knowledge of certain artists remains dormant with large groups of people, even though their music has been around for sometimes years already, being featured in films, television series, and commercials, as is the case with mgmt or kerli, as well as most of the other artists i listed.

your comment is completely correct, but then again, so is mine. it just depends on the angle. there was no need to patronize me.

Natalie said...

Defiantly Jonas Brother's and Mika. (not the Mika one that swares.) But Taylor Swiff is good too.

Becky said...

my list
modern nature by sondre lerche
I am the luckiest by ben folds
time after time by cyndi lauper
satellite heart from new moon st
hero from top gun st
that song from the lagoon commercial
the way I am by ingrid michaelson

Ryan said...

I totally agree with Julie De Azevedo. She is like the hottest super-spirichual singer and basicly every elder on the mish was in love with her. I know JJWT was torally crushin on her in Brasil/Chile/Arhentina/Mehico. "Pray for Rain" totally takes me back to the mission, but it also takes me forward to the fall cuz it totally rains in the fall, and my wife can where her knew rain boots that I bot her for our 2 week anniversry yesterday cuz we're sooo in love. She is super excited about them. But also, pretty much every preggo blogger knows that "Better Together" is like the most romantic thing. Every blog has this song if the couple is really in love. My wife has it on her new baby blog, and we don't find out for like forever if she is even preggo yet.

Miss Frazzled said...

How awesome that Julie De Azevedo is commenting on your blog? She's a total celebrity!

LZ said...

Did you decide already? Because you TOTALLY need some NEW FRESH HIP music on their like your YA's like n helps motivate you during those bad workout moments when you're trying to force yourself through the 19th mile of your 20-mile run, or the second consecutive yoga/pilates/cardio-weight training sessions! Sounds like you rilly need the Black Eyed Peas!! But not there yucky, frowny naughty songs, but the good, inspirational, I'm-better-than-you in a motivated way! Like "Boom Boom Pow" (LOVE when she says "I'm so 3008, your so 2000 and LATE!") or "I Got A Feeling" like what was on Oprah.
