BEDM Challenge: Day 29 All My Guilty Pleasures

Today's blog post was so easy that it felt criminal! No racking my brain and debating how to word something just so, just music. I loved it. Today's prompt:

"Five songs or pieces of music that speak to you or bring back memories."

Bingo. Bango. 
I knew exactly what to do.

If you haven't already heard the beautiful musical stylings of Megan Tonjes then allow me to introduce you to this incredibly talented and beautiful woman. I have been pretty much going on and on nonstop about her to my friends (sorry, Katie!) and family because recently her new music has been so fitting to my mood.

What I'm going to share for the sake of the blog challenge is not Megan's original, but a mashup that she did a couple of years ago. I can't tell you the amount of times that I had this particular mashup going on a loop while I powered through my last year at college. There was something about the light-hearted pop songs that were a welcome break from all of the reading and writing that I was doing at the time. I will never know what I was thinking when I decided to write not one, but two theses. Worst decision EVER! 

Anyways, Megan's voice was so AMAZING and her talent so great that she was able to take some ordinary pop songs that usually went unnoticed by me unless I was with friends dancing or singing off-key in my car by my lonesome. Every single one of the songs in Megan's mashup are undeniably some of my guilty pleasures, and some are not so guilty. :)

Megans amazing mashup is of the following pop songs:

"In My Head" by Jason Derulo
"Fireflies" by Owl City
"Tik Tok" by Kesha
"Genie in a Bottle" by Christina Aguilera
"Bad Romance" by Lady Gaga
"Save Tonight" by Eagle Eye Cherry
"Your Love is My Drug" by Kesha
"Baby" by Justin Bieber 

Since there are so many songs in this single mashup I think I can satisfactorily check the 5 songs or more box for this blog challenge. :)

Here is the In My Head Mashup! 

Also, if you are looking for new beautiful music then make sure to check out Megan's original music! Megan has released some really great stuff lately and so if you are new to her music then you are in for a treat! I have to share my current favorites of her new music with you all before I end this blog post.



I could go on and on about Megan Tonjes and why I love her and how talented she is, but I think you can see for yourself once you hear her sincere music. Don't forget to show Megan some love if you enjoy her music and I hope you end up loving her as much as I do!
