So this week is all about Canada! Back when we were talking about Australia, I mentioned that I had a list of where different countries and their music stood on like a top five list. Canada is the reason why I created the list in the first place! I was listening to so much that I realized how large it was getting the more I started to add on both my iPod and Spotify playlists!
Since I’ve had Canada on this rota for the last two years, I’ve had to really dig through my archives to see who I can talk about this year. I’m really surprised that Avril Lavigne was not on listed until now. There are still quite a few bands and singers that have not been talked about yet! Anyways, I’ve been an Avril Lavigne fan since 2002 while I was having my back surgeries. My roommate and I were seriously obsessed with her! I’ve always looked forward to new music from her even if people think she’s changed her sound too much. I still love her!
The next two are two that I don’t really listen to like a lot on a daily basis, but still I thought I’d include them on this post. First is Lights. I think the fact she changed her name to “Lights” so she could use that as her name (after it was already in usage by somebody else) it was legal for her to use it professionally afterwards. My friend Mandy has tried to get me to listen to her before with no such luck. It wasn’t until she released her album “Little Machines” that I started to notice she was everywhere! She’s featured in other EDM songs with Borgeous and Seven Lions. She’s not bad! The last is somebody that my sister just loves, Drake. Rap music is a genre that I don’t really listen to a lot, but I’ve realized that I have a couple rappers featured in these posts this year!
Do you know any more Canadian music? Let me know!
Sorry for not posting this yesterday but this wouldn’t load for me so now it will. Yesterday was Sunday, it started off at 8 o’clock two hours before the time my mom said we were going to get up, but I slept a total of 11 hours that night and I couldn’t force myself to sleep anymore. My mom and sister got up a little white afterwards and we didn’t get ready until 10. On the agenda that day was Walmart and maybe nana’s.
Well we went to nana’s first. Emily drove us there, wheelchair on the lift and all. She’s getting pretty good despite what she thinks really. We got there, my nana and I had nothing to really talk about besides how things went yesterday and if my outfit was cute or not. I wore my brown and blue, plaid shirt with my black pants that have buttons at the sleeves. I love those pants! Anyway, we told her about yesterday.
We had lunch there. Well everybody but me had lunch. Mom fed me beforehand and when she went to Subway she got me a Double Chocolate cookie. Actually Emily, Papaw, and I all got cookies. Nana didn’t want one and mom forgot about herself. By this time my mom and Emily took my regular wheelchair back to the house because we already established that we weren’t going to Walmart until next weekend. Here was the reason why. Mom and Emily were going to get their nails done at the Walmart. Well mom went through her checkbook and figured out that she didn’t have enough money for it. So Emily was going to work this week to pay for her nails. After mom’s only smoke break (which has got to be a record) she ended up changing her mind.
We took my nana’s push wheelchair. It sat in the back seat with me. Emily drove once again, but it was her first trip out of town driving. She did good too. We got to Walmart and I knew I wanted to look at three different places. Books. Posters. iTunes card. I already have 3 books in my room right now. Two are Library and one is mine. I haven’t even started on the one Library book I did want to read. They need to go back because I’m not in a reading frame of mind. We went over by the posters and saw this beautiful Footloose poster, and I almost took it. Then we kept looking. Emily found a Hangover II, Lil Wayne, and Drake posters. She ended up getting the Drake poster. I found two different Transformers posters. One of just Bumblebee and other was Autobots. I got that one instead. We grabbed my iTunes card at the check out line.
