Kylie Minogue for Good Housekeeping’s April 2013 issue
Side note: I did not know she had her own bed linen collection.
More important side note: GET RID OF THAT TERRIBLE FOOTER NOW
“And when good things are good, I want to share them. I don’t want to be alone.”
It is taking all of my strength not to belt this song out right now and wake up all of my roommates.

My taste in music has never been one in which I am content to dwell on one particular genre or artist for too long. I feel like every single day I’m constantly seeking out new music to listen to. I put new songs on my iPod and pull them a day later for a new batch. Maybe two or three from the old batch stay after I’m done. Every now and then I’ll find an artist who can hold my attention for a week or so. The ones that do it beyond a week are generally a part of my favorite musicians group but that is a very, very slim selection and one that has been cultivated for many years (but still changes). Whatever I’m listening to now, I don’t take seriously. If I like it, I like it. It’s for enjoyment purposes. I won’t sit around and pine away on the deeper meaning or anything. I’m 24, not 89.
Here’s what I’m jamming on lately:
It’s not easy for a pop star to sound better live and still deliver on the entertainment factor but Kylie is one of those very few who just sounds great no matter what. If ever I had to go see a pop artist live, it would be her. In fact the next time she goes on tour, I’m getting tickets to see her (and hopefully by then I will know someone who likes her too and wants to go with me and will also want to get super dressed up, dance and sing along, and sneak in a flask of Malibu Rum). I like and know the lyrics to almost all of Kylie’s songs. The Aphrodite/Les Folies album is different from her Live in New York one because the energy and the crowd in NY was insane. People were losing their shit over her, as it was her first concert in the Big Apple. The London crowd is much more contained. Still enthusiastic, but quieter. It is very hard for me to pick out a favorite song from this album, but right now I really dig her live version of “Illusion” as illuminated in the opening header there.
This is a way older song that my dad really likes. His musical influence has rubbed off on me over the years. I like his music more than my mother’s taste which tends to veer more towards Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and The Doors. Like me, my dad listens to everything from Gregorian chants to ’80s pop to Broadway musicals to hard rock. This song sounds like a sidewalk cracking to me from the way it takes you by surprise at the refrain. I like that kind of sound quite a bit in music I listen to.
If I had to make a top five list of my favorite musicians/music groups (had to), Massive Attack would be in that pile. This song reminds me of Moby’s work from his 18 and Play albums. This song makes me feeling like spinning around in a room in a fancy dress and having my reflection be illuminated on very glass surface.
Back in the high school day, I used to wake up early in the morning and watch music videos before going to class. I woke up at 5:30 usually so I could get in a solid 90 minutes before school. One of the videos I remember really enjoying was this one. It usually got the most play on VH1, as much of John Legend’s work tends to. This is a smooth jam right here. We can only hope to all have a dude with the pipes of Legend’s serenade us at some point or another.
Shit. This is what my brain sounds like. I had always wondered if I would find that sort of sound and here it is. Very dreamy and hypnotic with a faint Morrissey sample in the background (even though apparently it is a sample from an old French movie, I’m not buying it. I know my Morrissey when I hear him).
Amazing, they don’t sound so whiny! I credit RiRi for this- this is the first Coldplay song I have ever enjoyed and she does a wonderful job in it. In my head, the music video for this song is so opulent and sweeping with Rihanna and Chris Martin dressed in various clothing styles from countries overseas, trying to find each other on camels and on double decker buses and while riding elephants and being on airplanes and gondolas. It’s pretty ostentatious in my head, I can tell you that much. Which I find is befitting for both their personas.
I will sing this song to my future boyfriend and hopefully, he will laugh at it and sing me back as equally a ridiculous tune too. Look up the lyrics. That there is going to be one lucky fellow.
Away in a musical bubble,

I adore this woman like no other.
