Back in 2009, I wrote a half a dozen Christmas parody carols. With limited tools at the time, I could only leave the lyrics and let the viewers do their best to try them. With an iPhone now that allows me to record digitally easily, I figured I’d give one a go.
My other Christmas carol parody lyrics are here:
Maybe in the coming days I’ll record some more for the heck of it. :)
Let’s see how many subscribers I’ll lose over these, lol
This fall, I started to learn swing dancing, Lindy Hop more specifically. I am absolutely loving it, but not just for the dancing. The music is also absolutely phenomenal. I knew of some of the songs played before, but I’ve also not heard many, so I am also engaged in finding good music I had never heard. It was during one of these sessions to build my Swing play list on Spotify that I found this awesome gem called the Oriental Swing that’s a little racist, but totally acceptable to me (an Asian) considering it was done in 1938. :-)
These posts are for music I first heard in 2014 which I love and want to share. This one is just super! Great story, great groove, great tune to sing to. I don’t know why it’s not more popular and frequently played! Great video, too!
I just LOVE it! I can even shadow box dance to it, lol!
There are other videos with just the music, and not video and audio clips of Ali but not as fun, in my opinion. That’s the stuff that inspired this song!

This second entry in 2014 for songs I heard for the first time that I like a lot is Sha La La (Makes Me Happy) by Al Green.
Why do I like it? Just the groove it has, I would say. Appropriate with it being a 70s song from 1974. And that’s about it, to be honest. But it was groovy enough for me to add it to my list. :-)
I hope you like it, too!
