Weekly Music Video

Sorry the video is late this week, I couldn't get online yesterday. :)

Today it's Bury Me Alive by We Are The Fallen. They are an American/Irish gothic rock band made up of vocalist Carly Smithson (an American Idol contestant), guitarists Ben Moody, and John Le Compt and drummer Rocky Gray (all former Evanescence members) and bassist Marty O'Brien (from Disturbed and Static-X). Ben left Evanescence in 2003 and went on to form We Are The Fallen. The band's name is said to be an allusion to Evanescence's debut album Fallen and the group has been criticised for being similar to Evanescence.

We Are The Fallen debuted in 2009 and have released one album, Tear The World Down (2010) and two singles, Bury Me Alive and Tear The World Down. (Bury Me Alive was originally released as a free download in 2009 and then re-released as a re-mastered version the following year). The band was dropped by their record label Universal Republic in 2011 but are still together and recording music. They also have individual projects.

I'd been planning to post this video for a while but thought it was appropriate to post it today since it's Hallowe'en! I thought that it was the actress Jaime Pressly is in the video but I don't think it is. I remember that she was in Marilyn Manson's Tainted Love years ago.

 Happy Hallowe'en! :)

So Sharp: Dance Squad

So Sharp: Dance Squad is an American reality TV series about the University of Louisville Ladybird Dance Team run by Todd Sharp. It's set in Louisville, Kentucky. As you'll know if you follow this blog, I'm a fan of dance reality shows such as Dance Moms and Bring It! So I was interested when So Sharp started in the UK a few weeks ago.

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. :)
