Most of the time, when I'm looking through music, I like music that is either upbeat or makes you feel good. This has both!

Wanna know something freaky, the girl singing in this (Victoria Justice) literally has not aged a day since this came out. If I was straight, she'd be my wife....yup.....

Here's an example of the Universe trying to tell you that you need healing in an area of your life:

Someone who struggles with showing emotion. This person, in their lifetime, will constantly struggle with this, and that is because, they choose to ignore or disregard the fact that they have trouble showing emotion. Most people will ignore this issue, and will continue to fracture themselves. And this goes with pretty much any problem that happens in your life that is recurring. Don't pass up an opportunity to make you "whole" again.

My grandfather and I have a lot of music in common, as is evidenced by my love for the below song.



And my, how greatly do I relate to the lyrics! Gladys Horton might as well be singing the words I feel in my heart!

In an 80s synth-pop kind of mood apparently.

I know! Too weird! But I like Victoria's better. Did you know when "Victorious" was being made that they wanted to make sure that Victoria's voice always stood out above the rest. Which is funny cause, they have scenes of other cast members having a song to themselves, like Ariana and Liz had a scene where they did a duet. I dunno, super weird.

Apparently after a long time away I'm just straight-up falling in absolute love with this musical all over again. Genuinely think it's replaced Les Misérables as my favourite stage musical by now.

I LOVE THIS MUSIC VIDEO!!!!

Reason? Look at the interesting depiction of popularity. When you think of popularity, what comes to mind? When I think of popularity, I think of perfect bone structure, perfect body, charisma, etc... So, when I saw this music video the first time, I liked Mika's depiction of how popularity is flipped in this music video. Cause, in my personal opinion, Mika and Ariana are 2 very beautiful looking people. I mean Mika's like Michealangelo's lost inspiration, and Ariana's just beautiful period!

So, in saying that, what's interesting is the people who don't look so pleasant are the "popular kids." So, this depiction of popularity is flipped, the good-looking ones are looked down upon while the uglier versions are better. I wonder how the world would really be if this was how things were.

Regardless I really like the music video in this one. The music isn't bad, Mika made this song his own and good for him. I still think Kristen Chenoweth sang it best, but that's because she's a classically trained coloratura Soprano, so that explains that!

Here's an example of the Universe trying to tell you that you need healing in an area of your life:

This person, in their lifetime, will constantly struggle with this, and that is because, they choose to ignore or disregard the fact that they have trouble showing emotion.
