This song won’t “giddy on out” of my head

The Little Write Gal’s new favorite song is “Giddy on Up” by Laura Bell Bundy. I have to say the tune is quite addictive. We can’t stop singing it. If you haven’t heard it yet, check out the official music video here.

Enjoy!

David Garrett – my new favorite musician

David Garrett

I was glad I turned on Good Morning America this morning because I got to watch violinist David Garrett perform Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal.”  David recently set a record to become the The World’s Fastest Violinist, a feat to be documented in 2010’s Guinness Book of World Records.  To break the record, he played “Flight of the Bumblebee” in a dizzying 66 seconds, that’s 13 notes per second.  David graduated at the Julliard School in New York City and put himself through school by working as a model.  He has been called the “David Beckam of classical music” and with these good looks I can see why.

If you missed today’s GMA performance, you can watch it here.

Win the Wizards of Waverly Place CD (CLOSED)

wizardsofwaverlyplace

Last week Walt Disney Records released the Wizards of Waverly Place soundtrack featuring songs from and inspired by this hit Disney Channel TV series.  If you have kids in the house who watch the Disney Channel, I am sure they know all about this series which stars Selena Gomez. It is one of the Little Write Gal’s favorites. If you haven’t seen it before, the show follows the Russos, a New York family that includes Alex (Selena Gomez), her brothers and parents. The three kids are wizards, able to perform amazing feats of magic, though they aren’t supposed to do so without parental permission. Of course, that usually doesn’t stop Alex.

The Wizards of Waverly Place album features new songs and interpretations of classic tracks from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s, each one about magic. The CD includes several new songs performed by series star Selena Gomez, including “Disappear,” the rock ballad “Magical,” and the show’s theme song “Everything is Not as it Seems.” The CD features exclusive behind-the-scenes interviews with Selena, plus her all-new music video.  Also included on the CD is “Hannah Montana” co-star Mitchel Musso with a version of “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic” by the Police; the all-girl rock band KSM performing the 1968 Top 10 smash from Steppenwolf, “Magic Carpet Ride;” Meaghan Martin covering Olivia Newton-John’s #1 1980 hit “Magic;” “You Can Do Magic” by Drew Seeley; and Aly & AJ’s version of the Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Do You Believe in Magic.”

“Magic” by Selena Gomez, “Magic Carpet Ride” from KSM, and “Magic” by Honor Society will be featured in Wizards of Waverly Place The Movie, an adventure comedy complete with more than 350 special effects, premiering Friday, August 28 (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) as part of the Disney Channel Original Movie franchise.

Mitchel Musso CD Giveaway (CLOSED)

mitchellmussoIf you have any Hannah Montana fans in your house, then they are bound to know about Mitchel Musso who plays Oliver on the hit Disney show.  Musso just came out with his self-titled CD, Mitchel Musso, from Walt Disney Records.  The album features three songs co-written by Musso, plus a collaboration with his brother Mason from Metro Station. The CD unlocks an exclusive stream of “Let’s Make This Last 4 Ever” performed on Hannah Montana and includes a fold-out poster.  The Little Write Gal loves this CD and she plays it all the time.  As a Mom, I love it because the lyrics are very age appropriate and I do not have to worry about objectionable language as I do with some other pop artists.  You can watch the video for the debut single “Hey” here:
