Like my motto; You Gotta Live Fabulously.
There are so many ways to make you feel fabulous and one of them is finding the perfect song. Be honest with me, when you listen to a really good song that talks about confidence and sass, you got that inner Beyonce coming out. So, these are the songs that I like and warning; some of them are annoying ( but I still love ’em)…. and some contain a few colourful words 🙂 If you catch my drift.
I chose them – personally, based on the lyrics, the catchy tunes and the feeling of fabulous surging out the moment I listen to them.
- I Am Me (ayam mee) by Dato’ Seri Vida
It’s going viral right now and like 9.9/10 Malaysians have already listened to it. Some hate it and some love it – I’m in the latter category. I like how confident she is despite the lyrics were simply thrown in like a confetti – a pretty pink confetti. Come on, I’m a Queen? Who doesn’t want to be a queen? Living la Vida? You better live like a diva. I am me? You bet I am me and nobody’s going to change me ’cause I love me!
Also, she knows what it takes to present herself to the world. If you want people to know you; have confidence and show yourself!
- Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato
This song’s hot on the radio with its perfect bass that’ll make your body move along while waving your hands up in the air. I just love the bass thumps during the chorus and I sing along like I’m one of Demi’s backup singers (which I am absolutely not). Demi even mentioned that this song is for her haters. If the world is against you for being who you are, show ’em this – sorry not sorry.
- Formation and Run The World by Beyonce (Queen B)
Let’s start with Formation – the beat is uniquely done right. The song doesn’t need that over the top vocal – just some nice lyrics to keep you slayin’. The song originally stresses on the African American women in US to unite. To further understand what’s behind the curtains, I recommend you guys read this article by Chris Riotta
As for Run The World, it screams Girl Power! This song always get me motivated – if I want to run the world, then I better get my sh*t done! You and your squad would get pumped up if you’re going to go on a fight…for justice and goodness. Bad vibes, go away.
Childhood? Yeap. This song is so old back in the early 2000 however the bossy vibe is still bold. The heavy beat can’t help me feeling like I need to walk on a runway while flipping my hair to my haters. I don’t need to explain much – just listen to it and go walk on a runway.
- Talk by Salvatore Ganacci
I’m pretty sure nobody’s heard this song before – it was never on the radio or publicly advertised. I found it on this Youtube account called xKito Music (you better check it out). She upload songs from indie DJs/singers like Unlike Pluto, Whethan, RUNAGROUND, and PLVTINUM.
This song got some sick beats and a strong attitude exerted by the way the singer ‘talk’.
I don’t like the way you talk to me,
Saying you can talk to me however you like,
I know that ain’t right.
Preach, girl. Nobody has the right to say bad things about you. If they do, grab a mirror and show it to them. Cermin diri, please.
- Bonus: THE CRUSH SONG by Twaimz/issa
This song’s a joke. It’s a parody (or a cover) of Gwen Stefani’s Hollaback Girl. He changed the lyrics about him falls in love with his crush but at the end, he got rejected. Although that’s not the point – the point is, at the end of the song, he ended up having himself as his new crush. Narcissism? I think not. It’s about loving yourself. You go love yourself, honey.
Reason number one – I’m super hot
Reason number two – you’re super not
Reason number three – I’m all I got and all I got is someone hot
To my dear friend, if you’re reading that part – hope that stuck in your head >:)
Warning: This song’s got some sassy words going on. Parental advised 😀
Well, here are the songs that help me feel a little bit more confident once in awhile. I don’t expect others to have the same power songs like mine. What I want is that you find songs that make you feel empowered and have more trust in yourself. Don’t let others keep you down because if you do, when will you ever see yourself get back up?
