Jessie J ft. B.o.B. – Price Tag

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 11:41 am by LynxLee

First off, Natasha Bedingfield? Nope! It’s Jessie J. Yeah, I know.. I was surprised too.

When I first heard this song, I was like.. Cool song from Natasha Bedingfield. Her songs sound like this.. Next thing you know, it’s Jessie J. Oh okay.. So I made a quick search on her.. (don’t be confused with another singer “Jessy J”.. what’s with all the glamour names anyway?)

Speaking of name changing.. Holly Brook, the one who sang the background for the song “Where’d You Go” with Fort Minor.. she changed her name to Skylar Grey. I mean, what’s going on here? Good Girl Gone Bad? Total opposite kinda names. Holly Brook sounds so sweet and nice.. Skylar Grey sounds.. well.. like futuristic.. X-Men stuff. She also sang the background for Eminem & Dr. Dre’s performance at the Grammy’s.

UPDATE on Skylar Grey’s name changing. It’s because she likes Grey Sky. She wanted to be called “Grey”. Her manager then added “Skylar” and there you go. More details here.

Hmm.. how did I get off tracked anyway..? Anyway, Jessie J Bio Below..

Jessie J’s Wikipedia Bio

Jessica Ellen Cornish (born 27 March 1988), better known by her stage name Jessie J, is an English singer and songwriter. She first saw fame when she began writing tracks for Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. In February 2011, she won the prestigious Critic’s Choice award at The BRIT Awards in 2011. She also wrote the song “Party in the U.S.A.” for Miley Cyrus.

Anyway, did I mention I have a good respect for B.o.B.? Did you guys checked his performance at the Grammy’s? He did a great Acapella style of “Nothing on You”. I’ll save that for the next post..

For now, Jessie J. Ain’t about the money, money, money..

A little advert here for the Album on Amazon..


Jessie J – Who You Are – 2011

It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.
Ain’t about the (uh) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Ain’t about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Intro:
Ok
Coconut Man
Moonheads
and P
You ready.

Verse 1:
Seems like everybody’s got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the sale comes first,
And the truth comes second,
Just stop for a minute and
Smile
Why is everybody so serious?
Acting so damn mysterious
Got your shades on your eyes
And your heels so high
That you can’t even have a good
Time.

Pre-chorus:
Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right
Can you feel that? (yeah)
We’re playing with love tonight…

Chorus:
It’s not about the money, money, money
We don’t need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.
Ain’t about the (uh) Cha-Ching Cha-Ching.
Ain’t about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

Verse 2.
(Listen, Okay.)
We need to take it back in time,
When music made us all UNITE!
And it wasn’t low blows and video hoes,
Am I the only one gettin… tired?
Why is everybody so obsessed?
Money can’t buy us happiness.
Can we all slow down, enjoy right now?
Guarantee we’ll be feelin
Alright.

Pre-chorus

Chorus

Bridge:
Lala-Lala-Lalala ay!
Lala-Lala-Lalala ay!
Lala-Lala-Lalala ay!
Price Tag!

Lala-Lala-Lalala ay!
Lala-Lala-Lalala ay!
Lala-Lala-Lalala ay!
Price Tag!

Chorus

Break it Down

Money, money, money
World dance
Forget about the price tag (yeah)

Ain’t about the uh Cha-ching, cha-ching

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

Please don’t be in love with someone else
Please don’t have somebody waiting on you


Adam Young from Owl City’s Version


Taylor Swift’s Song

Your eyes whispered “have we met?”
Across the room your silhouette starts to make it’s way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks like passing notes in secrecy
And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

Your eyes whispered “have we met?”
Across the room your silhouette starts to make it’s way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks like passing notes in secrecy
And it was enchanting to meet you
All I can say is I was enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

The lingering question kept me up
2am, who do you love?
I wonder till I’m wide awake
Now I’m pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
I’d open up and you would say,
It was enchanted to meet you
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go

I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

This is me praying that this was the very first page
Not where the story line ends
My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again
These are the words I held back as I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you
Please don’t be in love with someone else
Please don’t have somebody waiting on you
Please don’t be in love with someone else
Please don’t have somebody waiting on you

This night is sparkling, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, blushing all the way home
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless, don’t you let it go
I’m wonderstruck, dancing around all alone
I’ll spend forever wondering if you knew
I was enchanted to meet you

Please don’t be in love with someone else
Please don’t have somebody waiting on you

Nelly Furtado – Night Is Young

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , at 10:52 am by LynxLee

I heard this track on hitz.fm about a week ago and it kinda got stuck in my head. The track’s lyrics is as good as getting all you want and need and full of freedom.

I know it’s some sort of a disco/trance song, but take some time to listen to it once, twice. You’ll get what I mean.

Besides, you can’t go wrong with Nelly Furtado. She’s got good music all these while.

Have a listen. Cheers!

“Best of Nelly Furtado” Album
