1000 Songs In A Year

After reading this post on Hope & Sugar about Life List goals you can do by yourself:

I was inspired by No 17, which is to listen to 1000 new songs. So I decided to listen to 1000 new songs in a year and blog about it on here. :)

I started on Monday (24th March). I'm counting music videos on TV and YouTube, as well as songs I hear on Spotify or elsewhere. And they don't have to be new releases; they just have to be new to me.

Here are the songs I've listened to so far: 

1. Ken Hirai- Hitomi wo tojite
2. Brooke Hyland (Dance Moms)- Mean to Me
3. BANKS- Brain
4. Girl's Day- Female President
5. Girl's Day- Expectation
6. Apink- NoNoNo
7. Girls' Generation- Galaxy Supernova
8. EXO-M- Mama (Chinese version)*
9. EXO-K- Mama (Korean version)*
10. Super Junior- Sexy, Free & Single

I went on a K-pop kick! lol.

* EXO are a Korean/Chinese boyband with 12 members who are also divided into 2 subgroups, EXO-K and EXO-M. Two of their members (Kai and Lu Han) are part of the supergroup Younique Unit. I'll do a post on EXO soon. :) Eunhuyk from Super Junior and Henry from the subgroup Super Junior-M are also Younique Unit members.

Do you have any suggestions for me? What is your favourite song? My favourite types of music are pop, R'n'B, rap, Hindi, J-pop and K-pop and I also like dance, Turkish and gothic/symphonic metal. I'm open to other genres as well, lol.


  1. Hey, this is awesome!! Currently m doing the same with movies, music is up next on my list :)

  2. Thanks! That's cool that you're doing a movies one and then music. Look forward to reading about it. :)

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
