Hey Muzik Speakerz!

March 2016 has been another great month and saw us turn 1 year old!

We did an interview with Lucy Spraggan and a review of her show, when she performed in Brighton and did a series of special birthday playlists for each themed day; #MellowMonday#Two4Tunesday#WildCardWednesday#ThrowbackThursday and #FeelGoodFriday.

We’ve had a blast and been so proud to have hit the milestone of our first birthday and coming up next month, should be more interviews and reviews (in particular, Patent Pending…again! But this time, in person; which guarantees to be a massive laugh!) as well as our usual posts to bring you music for each of our themed days.

We hope that you have enjoyed this month’s songs and you can find both the Spotify and YouTube playlists below!

As always, please keep sharing our posts and remember to share your song choices with us by commenting on our posts or talking to us on Twitter and Facebook.

#FeelGoodFriday: Kelly Clarkson – ‘Piece By Piece’ & ‘Piece By Piece (Idol Version)’

‘Piece By Piece’ is the title track to Kelly Clarkson‘s seventh studio album and it’s a beautifully written song.

The song is a narrative to her father, who abandoned her family as a child, however is opposed by the love her husband shows her and her daughter (and expected son). It might be an odd choice for #FeelGoodFriday, but the song has a happy ending and that’s what I’m focusing on.

The song gathered even more attention when Clarkson performed a stripped-back rendition of the song on the fifteenth (and final) season of American Idol. The p erformance saw Clarkson break down at the emotion behind the song (combined with her pregnancy emotions) – it’s a raw performance.

I’ve included the original video for the song as well as the American Idol performance, as both are great!

What do you think of the song? Does her live performance bring tears to your eyes? Please share the link to this post on your media accounts!

Have a great Easter weekend everyone!

#FeelGoodFriday: Kelly Clarkson – ‘Heartbeat Song’

Kelly Clarkson Banner

I love this song!

Pop at it’s best; catchy, upbeat, feel-good, not to mention Kelly Clarkson’s epic vocal abilities. Sure, this may be cheesy, but I can’t get enough of it, the bridge through to the chorus is euphoric and as for the breakdown at the end of the song, well, amazing!

Whatever you may think of her (Katie Hopkins, Chris Wallace and Mike Gallagher!) this woman can sing!!!

Have you got that Friday feeling yet? What’s making you ‘Feel-Good’ today? Share your song to help brighten our day 🙂
