I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I’m back! Welcome to Mood and Music Monday, everyone!
Mood and Music Monday is a weekly meme I’ve started, wherein I’ll post a song and talk about how it relates to my day/week, as well as a few other things. (And, in case anyone’s wondering, this meme has no relation to Lauren’s [from Always Me] “Music Mondays.”) Feel free to participate and to leave a link to your posts down in the comments!
Here’s the update for this week.
SONG(S) OF THE WEEK
What are you listening to? I’ve been listening to a lot of songs from musicals lately, especially Moulin Rouge!. (EWAN MCGREGOR SINGS, GUYS.) I love how they’ve taken well-known songs and completely transformed them, both in sound and in meaning. The combination of the orchestra and the vocals makes my heart soar. “Your Song,” “Elephant Love Medley,” and “One Day I’ll Fly Away” are some of my other favorites. (“El Tango de Roxanne” is pretty great, too. [And SO INTENSE, GOSHDARNIT. It leaves me breathless every time.])
What are you reading? After finishing The Truth About Forever, I started Eclipse, but I’ve almost hit the 300 pagemark, and I’m too bored to read further right now. So, instead, I started The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner, which I’m actually really enjoying. Hopefully I’ll be able to finish Eclipse eventually.
What are you drinking? Water and KeVita. No surprises there. 🙂
Any goals for this week? To survive finals week, haha. After this week, I’m out of school for the summer! Woohoo!
That’s all for today. I have some exciting news to share with you this Wednesday (finally!), so expect a post then.
How about you?
