Musical Interlude: Youtube Cover Song Face Off

Have you ever wished you could be a judge on one of the reality talent shows out there? Here’s your opportunity!

Personally, I’d have a very hard time choosing only one.  I usually like many of the competitors and I’d hate to ruin someones long sought after dream.

I recently found’s  “Youtube cover song face off” and spent hours some time trying to decide who to vote for.  It’s not that easy.

Each week, Mashable picks a popular song, finds 10 covers of it and asks you to vote for your favourite. This weeks choice – “Moves Like Jagger” from Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera

I’m really curious to see who you would vote for.  Here are a few to give you an idea:

Stephen Carmichael

Arlene Zelina & Jervy Hou

Katy McAllister & Tyler Ward

Kollaboration New York

To watch all of the 10 videos and choose your favourite cover of  “Moves Like Jagger” visit and vote.  Then come back and let us know who you chose.  Me? I’m still mulling it over…it’s tough!

…and it goes like this…take me by the tongue…and I’ll know you…I got the mooo hoo hooves like Jagger…


“Calling All Angels”

There has been a lot of turmoil in our world lately, but it’s still important to stop what you’re doing and take a break from your daily grind. Whether you call a friend, sip on a warm cup of herbal tea, take the dog for a walk or paint, it’s a great way to get inspired to keep going. I like to stop and listen to music, I call it my “Musical Interlude”. ( like stopping to smell the roses but with your ears!) Press pause for a moment and listen to the words of the song “Calling All Angels” by Train .

I think we all need to put a call into our ‘Angels’ to help those in need right now.

Don’t forget to tune into Global for the 44 th Annual Variety Show of Hearts Telethon starting @ 7 pm Jan 30th, it’s for a great cause with lots of great inspiration!

Now crank it and enjoy this Musical Interlude with me ~

I just found this description of this song, it’s just PERFECT, here it is:

‘That in the time of great confusion, loss, and disorientation, one does not call for redemption, but asks for a sign of inspiration, for the courage to not surrender to despair. It’s a tome about hope against the odds, acknowledging vulnerability, and accepting responsibility to remain focused and critical enough to win one’s own redemption in everyday life, in order to become a better human being’.
