This week on New Tune Tuesday I am featuring a country song about doing your own thing and not caring about other people’s judgements. I really think this song needs to be heard by all. This is one of those songs people should take to heart and apply to their every day activities. I know I’m quick to say that and unfortunately most of the time I don’t take my own advice. This song really opened my eyes up to being myself and to work on building my self confidence and I hope it helps someone out there too.

Today’s song is not an upbeat bass-filled musical number that I usually play. This is one of those songs I belt out over and over again just to warm up my voice and strengthen my singing. I love the lyrics. They remind me that yes, I am only human and I can’t be everything for everyone else.
“Cause I’m only human
And I bleed when I fall down
I’m only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
Cause I’m only human”

Today’s New Tune Tuesday is a remix from Caked Up that I found on SoundCloud. If you don’t know what SoundCloud is then go look it up right now, it will change your life. I have a thing for good remixes and mashups and I have found SO MANY great songs from SoundCloud. Add to the fact that making an account is free, you can download the app and listen to all the same music on your phone for free, and you can make playlists to organize the songs you like the most. It’s just fantastic! (No, nobody is paying me to say all this haha.)
Anyway, back to the song. My husband introduced this one to me and I just can’t stop listening. The beat is incredible. This of course lead me to investigate Caked Up on SoundCloud and I was pleasantly surprised to find more remixes that I love. I even liked the one with Wrecking Ball which surprised me the most considering I can’t stand the original song. I’m so excited I can listen to this right on my phone from the app and it will definitely be a song I blast LOUDLY with the windows down during my road trip to MD next month as well as playing this at pre-gaming evenings with my friends back up at school 😉 !

Today I’m going to start New Tune Tuesdays where I will feature a new-to-me song and write a little bit about it.
Today’s song is “Our Song” by Matchbox Twenty.
My mom introduced this song to me and I can’t stop listening. It’s catchy, meaningful, and the lyrics are great. I have listened to this too many times to mention and I was reminded by my husband that this is not a new song. I don’t know how I managed to miss this one until now. Either way, I’m glad it has been brought into my music library and I’m going to do that sad thing people do and listen to it on repeat until I’m sick of it… Hopefully that doesn’t happen 🙂
