Weekly Music Video

I'm posting the Weekly Music Video a day early because it's Christmas tomorrow. Can't believe it's Christmas Eve already!

Today's video is Christmas themed; it's White Light by Japanese singer Namie Amuro. It was Namie's first Christmas love song and was released as a double A-side along with Violet Sauce in 2005. (I have to post Violet Sauce sometime; it's one of my favourite Namie songs!). White Light also appeared on her best of album BEST FICTION (2008).


Merry Christmas! :)

Update 15/4.15: I can never seem to find the original version of Violet Sauce on YouTube! Maybe it's been banned for copyright reasons. Namie's record label is Avex and they don't tend to post full music videos of many songs, a lot of them are short versions and I think they're quite strict about copyright. Never mind, if Avex upload Violet Sauce in the future I can post it on here.

Todd is head coach along with Sheryl Knight, a former Ladybird herself. Todd has also coached the Floyd Central Dazzlers. The team have won 15 national championships so far.

As with the other dance reality shows, there's a lot of drama! Marissa Hall is close to Todd and describes him as like a father to her. She is considered one if the best dancers and her close relationship with Todd rubs some people up the wrong way, particularly Michelle Carpenter. Rose Crombie is one of Marissa's main rivals but according to the Decidr article about the team (see below) they're close. Gabrielle Iannone struggles sometimes with the choreograp…

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Turkish and Arabic Songs

Since my belly dance classes recently started again after a break over the summer and I'm also going to the belly dance event South Coast Shimmy tonight. I thought I'd post a round-up of Turkish and Arabic songs, plus a couple of songs I haven't mentioned before. :)
