“I’ve got the gift of one-liners and you’ve got the curse of curves.”

I adore this song! I was familiar with Cute Is What We Aim For, but when I found this particular tune via Pandora, I became an actual fan. Not only is the music very catchy and right in line with the genres I most love, but the lyrics are pretty sweet, too. I recommend checking it out and maybe take a moment to let me know what you think!

It’s been a hot minute since the last Tuneage Tuesday, but I’m back with yet another round for you lovelies.

So what gift do I bear? “Love Foolosophy” by Jamiroquai. We all remember tunes like “Virtual Insanity” and even “Canned Heat,” but this one is a bit less known. I adore it just the same though, and I hope you do, too.

Tuneage Tuesday — “Slam Dunk Da Funk”

It was the mid-to-late ’90s and there was *NSync (my personal favorite), Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, LFO, and countless other boy bands just trying to make a name for themselves.

Including 5ive.

I can remember sitting in my overly-pink bedroom pre-2000, watching the Disney channel nearly every opportunity available just to see 5ive’s latest music video or even their concert performance with B*Witched. I never said I was a very cool pre-teen …

… And I’m clearly not that awesome as an adult either because several of their songs – such “When the Lights Go Out” and It’s the Things You Do” – are most definitely on my IPod. I will certainly might even download a few more tunes from 2006/07 when these boys apparently reunited.

Tuneage Tuesday — “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”

We all know The Beatles … and the majority of us either love them or hate them. I fall into the former category with an IPod overrun by “The Fab Four.”

Little introduction into this week’s Tuneage Tuesday is likely needed, but I figured I’d add a slightly less-familiar tune for those of you whose love for The Beatles doesn’t run quite as deep as my own.

(Sorry I posted twice in one day! Rest assured it’ll likely never happen again.)

Tuneage Tuesday — “Carry Out”

So why am I choosing a song this week that’s on the radio, getting crazy airplay, and featuring two quite-popular artists? Because I am determined to marry the JRT. Because my now ten-year love for Justin Timberlake still makes me smile and giggle like a 12-year-old when he sings lyrics like “Do you like it well done ’cause I do it well” and “Imma touch you in all the right areas.” And Timbaland isn’t half-shabby as an entertainer either.

Don’t judge! We all have weaknesses and Mr. Timberlake is mine. If you want proof, I’ll send you a link to my defunct *NSYNC Web site a photo of the refrigerator magnet I have of him that still lives in my kitchen*.

* Don’t tell my boyfriend that. He’s yet to notice that I relocated it into our new home together. =P

Tuneage Tuesday – “Alive With The Glory of Love”

Honestly, I can’t believe I waited this far into my “Tuneage Tuesday” series to bring forth the awesomeness known as Say Anything. After all, I practically risked life and limb for these guys a few years ago … and by that I mean my 5’1″ self was nearly trampled in the mosh pit at Bamboozle in 2007 because I absolutely insisted on getting as close to the stage as possible, especially for this particular song.

You might already know these guys from a song they released called, “Wow, I Can Get Sexual Too,” but that hit doesn’t truly capture how amazing this band is. Actually, if you ask me, “Sexual” was more of a “let’s get on the radio” gimmick than anything else, but that’s besides the point. Check out the tune below and let me know what you think. These guys are seriously one of my favorites. Definitely in the top 5.

The song is often called an “intense and oddly uplifting rocker about a relationship torn by the Holocaust” and is somewhat based on the lead singer’s own grandparents who survived through that horrific time in history. I hope you already listened to the song before reading this – doubtful though – because I’d hate to sway the way in which you heard the lyrics, but I thought this tidbit was both pretty deep and damn interesting.

Tuneage Tuesday — “Uprising”

After a brief hiatus last week — and a hiatus in general thanks to my ridiculously crazy life at the moment — I’m back with another tune to tickle your eardrums (that was lame). And optimistically, this is me delving back into the blogosphere for real this time, rather than teasing you folks with my empty promises, ha.

So what do we have lined up this Tuesday? Well, seeing as my readers aren’t ones for soft and melodic – which I swiftly learned two weeks ago – I’m bringing you some Muse today. They aren’t exactly an unknown band, as some others have been, but my current obsession with this song made it almost necessary to post. I have been a Muse fan for quite a few years now, so this song just highlights one of many I love. Let me know your thoughts!
