Staying Alive Songs

I thought today I would post a couple of videos from the 1983 film Staying Alive (sequel to Saturday Night Fever). It's a good film (I actually prefer it to Saturday Night Fever) and the soundtrack is good too.

First up here is Finding Out The Hard Way sung by Cynthia Rhodes, who played Jackie, the girlfriend of John Travolta's character Tony Manero, in the film. As well as being a dancer, Jackie sang in a band with Carl (played bu Frank Stallone, brother of Sylvester).






And here is I Hope We Never Change and Waking Up. Waking Up is a duet sung by Jackie and Carl. I like I Hope We Never Change (at least what I've heard of it because it isn't the full song) but it wasn't included on the soundtrack and I don't know if the full song was ever available anywhere.





Cynthia Rhodes was a good actress, dancer and singer, known mainly for Staying Alive, Dirty Dancing and Flashdance. She stopped acting in the 90s because she wanted to be a full time mum.

Frank Stallone has had a long, successful career as an actor, singer/songwriter and musician. He wrote 9 songs for Staying Alive, including these featured and Far From Over and was nominated for both a Golden Globe and a Grammy.


Hope you enjoy the videos. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant

Earlier this month I did a post on the new series of Teen Mom UK. At the end of of the post I mentioned that a new show had started in America called Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant. It's now due to start in the UK next week, so here's more about the programme. :)

Teen Mom: Young and Pregnant is the latest in the Teen Mom franchise which started with the 2009 series 16 and Pregnant. It follows 5 girls- Ashely, Brianna, Kayla, Lexi and Jade. Their ages vary from 17 to 21.


Lexi Tatman

The clip of Lexi was the first one I saw. She's 17 and  a cheerleader from Colorado. Her baby son's father is Kyler Lopez and she split-up with him before finding out she was pregnant. When you see Lexi cheerleading while pregnant it reminds me of Farrah Abraham (from Teen Mom OG) in her 16 and Pregnant episode!

Here are Lexi's social media links:

This week's video is Love Lies by  Khalid featuring Normani (from American girl group Fifth Harmony). Khalid (full name Khalid Donnell Robinson) is an American singer who started out by posting music to Soundcloud and then featured on Alina Baraz's single Electric in early 2016. He released his debut single Location in July 2016, which is one of his biggest hits to date. His debut album American Teen came out in March 2017.

Khalid's other singles include Young, Dumb & Broke. Love Lies and OTW with rappers/singers Ty Dolla $ign and 6LACK.

Love Lies was released on Valentine's Day (14th Feb) and is from soundtrack of  the American film Love, Simon. I've only seen the video in the last month though). It's the first single Normani has released outside of Fifth Harmony, who are currently on hiatus.

Top 10 True Movies

I like watching films based on true stories. I used to watch them occasionally as a child and teen but I started watching them more after the True Movies channels (True Movies 1 and True Movies 2) launched on Sky 11 years ago. It seems weird that it's been so long, lol. I usually watch the films on those channels (or True Entertainment) but I also sometimes watch them on Lifetime or other channels. (I think a lot of these are Lifetime original movies but we didn't get the Lifetime channel in the UK until late 2013).

I thought that today I'd share my Top 10 True Movies. :)


Trigger warning:

Most of the films are based on crimes (often murder or abuse) and I realise these are difficult subjects, so read with caution if you're sensitive to these type of films.
