Music Monday: The BEAUTIFUL Tuesday Edition

You didn't think I forgot about you, did you?

Well, I can see how you would. I've been rather absent in these parts lately, but I have good reasons. It's called life (and I'm enjoying it).

Please, rest assured I did not forget. Mondays can be a little rough (what with my 4.30 AM start time) and by the time I got home, searched for a clip (which could not be found) and napped Tuesday was here!

For my Canadian friends it was Juno night! This is the Canadian music award show, and it was pretty spectacular this year - way better than the Oscars! My favourite performance of the night was Down With Webster. I was hoping to find a good quality clip to share, but alas, I resurfaced from the interweb saddened and soiled (and without the clip I wanted).

To be honest, after the disaster that is Rebecca Black's "Friday" I needed something to scour the FUN FUN FUN from my brain.

I needed something big.

After my original idea was canned, I found a new repository of worms for you to renew your faith in music. It worked like a charm. I am no longer singing along to a song against my will. My sanity has been saved and the youthful blunder of Miss Black has been bagged.

What is this dark horse I speak of? Shake your money maker to Salt-'N-Pepa's I Am The Body Beautiful:

The song can be found on the To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar soundtrack. If you haven't seen this movie, you need to. Immediately. Preferably when you have a big bottle of wine or some other form of giddy-inducing consumable (I hear chocolate cake can work well, if you need some ideas). This is the only flick you that will ever feature Patrick Swayze and Wesley Snipes in drag.

Need I say more?

Did you watch the Juno's? Have you seen Rebecca Black's YouTube sensation, "Friday"? How about To Wong Foo?

It's okay if we don't agree. It is even okay if you disagree and bop around to the ballad of Miss Black. Just know that every time you bop and hop and bring the house down a fairy loses her wings.

Blowing over Black,



  1. Ummmm I LOVE To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar!!!! Haha, it's such a funny/cute movie!

  2. That makes me happy! I am always amazed at how many people have never heard of the flick!

    Have a fabulous Monday! =]
