“Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen | 32 bar cut

Consider this my official bid for the Presidency #Patrick2020

“Alone In the Universe” from Seussical | 16 bar cut

I love Ariana Grande's new album but tbh sometimes I feel odd jamming out to "7 Rings" cause I don't feel a song about having money is very applicable to my life. SO I made a version that feels more aligned to the experience of being a young adult living in New York City.

A year ago, I wouldn’t have considered myself a huge Avril Lavigne fan. That’s not to say I didn’t admire her work and couldn’t do the choreography “Girlfriend” music video, but I wouldn’t have said I listened to her daily, or even weekly. That changed with this song. I mean, wow. She really did that. She had a near death experience with Lyme disease and turned that experience and those emotions into an amazing piece of art. I feel her strength and vulnerability when I hear this song or sing it. I admire the crap out of her for that.

 
 
 
 

Ariana Grande has had one of the hardest years of her life so far (in my opinion) and had to do it all in the public eye with everyone throwing their own opinions and think pieces at her. Despite this, she’s still gone and released tongue-in-cheek, fun pop songs like this as singles while keeping the more somber tracks for her b-sides. I think this is a testament to her commitment to focusing on the lighter aspects of life while not ignoring the darkness. Plus this song is all that plays in my head at the gym when I see my Gym Husbands (aka men who go to my gym who I’ve decided I will marry).
