Music Monday; No.1s part 2


Okay so I know its not technically Monday anymore but lets just go along with it. Please .So yesterday I posted my first installment of this weeks number 1s it was from BBC Radio1's chart and the winner was Maroon 5 feat Wiz Khalifa with  Payphone. So most of our readers are from America, Woo, so I decided to honor this and take part 2's number 1 from one of the biggest charts, Billboard Hot 100.

On its 17th week on the charts, this weeks number one comes from the gorgeous Carly Rae Jepsen, of course its the catchy 'Call Me Maybe'. Now I have actually reviewed this song already in a music Monday Post which you can check out here: Music Monday; Call Me Maybe. And if you still haven't heard it here it is:

So because I have already reviewed it I'm just going to post some great covers and a couple parodies that are probably even catchier than the actual song.

So my first cover is from GMD3, I know I included them in yesterdays post but their covers are just so damn good, and well to cut a long story short, they are smoking!

My second cover is by Megan Nicole, this is such a beautiful version and I adore what she is wearing in this video. She also sounds quite a bit like Carly Rae Jepsen.

My final one is by Tiffany Alvord, again this is another beautiful cover and she is such a wonderful guitarist.

Okay so I think most of my readers know by now I love Cimorelli, I also love Matty B, hes so adorable and this is one of my favourite songs, you probably cant even imagine my reaction when I found out they were making a parody version together, well actually you probably can, lets just say it was a cross between a little girl finding £1 on the floor and a dying fly. Okay back to the song, I always seem to have it in my head, and whenever Call Me Maybe comes on I seem to sing this version instead. So heres Matty B Raps and Cimorelli's parody Don't Call Me Baby

And as you may, or may not know this song became so popular after teen stars, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale and more did a little video to it, little meaning over 43,614,914 views, so I will leave you with that and hopefully post the last installment tomorrow

Music Monday; No.1s part 1


I can't believe how long it has been since I last did a music Monday, I've been super busy. And I won't be able to do one next week either because I'm going on a residential with school, were not allowed to take any technology, which means no music for a WHOLE week, I think I might die! Because of this I thought i would do a super-duper-amazing music post with the number 1's from 3 of the biggest music charts this week. I'm gonna try to do this over 3 days (it may be 4) with a different chart each day.

BBC Radio 1

Okay first up is from BBC Radio 1, this is the chart show I like to listen to, I don't really know why but it might have something to do with the fact I've listened to it since like forever.

Anyway this week they crowned Maroon 5 feat Wiz Khalifa number 1 with Payphone. I loved their huge hit feat. Christina Aguilera, Moves like Jagger, but Payphone is defiantly my favourite, I hate rapping and I'm not that keen on Wiz Khalifa but for some reason I'm not actually bothered about it and actually find myself rapping along. Here's the official lyric video, if you haven't heard it already I'm sure you will be dancing along within the first few seconds:


There has also been so many amazing covers on YouTube so here's some of my favourites

1. First up Cimorelli, I love these girls and this cover and also there is some very factual information about the girls and some crazy bloopers at the end so make sure you watch it 'til the end. You should also vote for them at the Teen Choice Awards!

2. Next is GMD3, their cover is just as amazing and I also love these boys (now you get the fangirl bit), I was even lucky enough to meet them at Soccer Six last month which was well one of the best days of my life, anyway heres their cover.

3. Meg and Liz, these girls have been growing on me recently ever since I heard their cover actually so yeah have a little looksie (or a big one if your awkward like that)

4. And finally this one is for Ellie, who I do the vlog with. She loves Luminites and I must say their cover is pretty good, well actually very good, here you go:

So that about sums it up, hopefully I will post my next installment as such tomorrow
