Now Playing: Eighth Edition

Hey fabulous followers! Here’s this week’s #HellOnHeels: Now Playing. Be sure to tweet me your favorites @HellOnHeelsGirl. Have you gotten your #HellOnHeels koozie yet? Grab one here. Enjoy!

1. “Tip It On Back” by Dierks Bentley 

Relax with a drink and your friends to this fabulous country hit by Dierks. Music Video

2. “Kiss My Head” by Passafire

I present an alterna-rock mellow jam to you. This song got me into the group Passafire, and hopefully you like it too! YouTube

3. “My Body” by Young the Giant

Continuing on the alterna-rock train, this song has been a recurring playlist favorite for months now. It’s great to rock out to in the car for a dance party of one (my favorite) and such a boost for your spirit. “But I won’t quit, ’cause I want MORE.” Music Video

4. “Lolita” by Lana Del Rey

I feel like the baddest, sexiest, bitch when I listen to this song. Give me some red lipstick and red heels and I’m good to go. Vimeo (Side note: Lana created a homemade video demo? Check it out here.)

5. “Marshmallow World” by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to bust out the mistletoe and holly for Christmas! These two are my FAVORITE male singers of all time (I’m Italian and a huge sucker for the classics, what did you expect?!) so I found it only appropriate that the first Christmas song to make the Now Playing list be sung by them. This song is upbeat with essential pop standard charm. It’s classic, timeless and happy. A must add to any Christmas playlist. Also, watch the original video of them performing it live on TV here. They just make it look so easy and fun!

Now Playing: Seventh Edition

Hey fabulous followers! Here’s the seventh edition of #HellOnHeels: Now Playing. Share your favorites with me on twitter: @HellOnHeelsGirl. Enjoy!

1. “Dancing on My Own” by Robyn

The ULTIMATE dance party of one anthem. We’ve all been in this position before. Instead of dwelling on it, just head to the center of the dance floor and rock out. [Shout out to my favorite, Miss @socialprgirl] Music Video

2. “Lady Marmalade” by Christina Aguilera, Lil’ Kim, Mya and Pink featuring Missy Elliot

The ULTIMATE girl anthem. Throwback to when Christina rocked the shit out of a corset (unlike the AMAs the other night, ehh. But I still love her.) Music Video

3. “Silhouettes” by Avicii

DANCE PARTY. Music Video

4. “Chivas (Live Acoustic)” by Kelly Clarkson

It’s easy to write Kelly Clarkson off as a pop songstress. Chivas, one of her lesser known songs, demonstrates that this girl can SING. And, sometimes, we all get so fed up with the dating/relationship game, we just need a time out. “So much for true love, I’ll take the Chivas instead.” YouTube

5. “Someone Else Calling You Baby” by Luke Bryan

In honor of Luke Bryan’s AMA win for Best Male Country Artist (woo!), this is the final song on Now Playing today. This upbeat country song off the “Doin’ My Thing” album from 2009 is a great jam for anyone who just wants their ex to wonder. YouTube

Now Playing: Sixth Edition

Which one is your favorite? Let me know on Twitter: @HellOnHeelsGirl. Enjoy, my darling followers!

1. ” Sweet Nothing” by Calvin Harris featuring Florence Welch

The vocals and the beat on this track contrast in the best way possible. I love when these two collaborate. If you haven’t been already, you’ll be rocking out to this. Music Video

2. “Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)” by Gary Allan

The latest single from country singer Gary Allan does not disappoint. Sometimes, we all need to take comfort in the fact that eventually, this too will pass. Lyric Video

3. “Stripper” by The Sohodolls

This sultry, funky song has just the perfect amount of come-hither-ness for a night of fun. It puts me in the perfect mood, and it was featured on one of my favorite tv shows, Gossip Girl! When this song comes on, I am instantly transformed into a burlesque dancer in a smoky, dark club. Who doesn’t love a little escape to the wild side?! (wink, wink) Original Music Video

4. “Kick Out the Epic Motherf*&ker” by Dada Life

Rage on, kids. Dance party your hearts out. Music Video

5. “Springsteen” by Eric Church

In honor of Eric Church’s huge win for ALBUM OF THE YEAR, I present to you arguably my favorite song off the CHIEF album. Shocking, I know. I feel like it was only a matter of time until this song made the Hell On Heels: Now Playing list. Normally, if an album has four or five hits, it’s considered a success. This album has that and so much more. In my opinion, every song on it offers something dynamic and different; it’s a wonderful experience for the listener. Eric Church is a lyrical genius with intoxicating word play. The entire album is pure perfection and this savory song about melodies and memories is no exception. Music Video

Now Playing: Fifth Edition

Hey fabulous followers! Enjoy this week’s Now Playing :)

1. “Better Dig Two” by The Band Perry

This is the latest single from one of my favorite country bands and it was just released today! Needless to say, I’m already a fan. YouTube

2. “Wheels Rollin’” by Jason Aldean

Off Jason’s newest album, this song is a must have for the “road trip” playlist. YouTube

3. “Call Me Maybe (Cover)” by MacKenzie Bourg

Heard this phenomenal cover on “The Voice” last night and fell in love. It’s a fresh take on the poppy song that’s just so damn catchy! The Voice via YouTube

4. “Drinking from the Bottle” by Calvin Harris featuring Tinie Tempah

So, Calvin Harris just released his “18 Months” album today. I haven’t listened to the cd in it’s entirety yet, but I like what I hear so far. Put this on your “dance party” “pregame” and “pour hour” playlists IMMEDIATELY. YouTube

5. “Dimming Sky” by Passafire

This alternative/reggae song is fantastic and always puts me in a good mood. Post-hurricane Sandy, we need a good pick up! YouTube

Now Playing: Fourth Edition

Happy Tuesday my darling followers! Enjoy this week’s post :)

1. “Front Porch Thing” by Little Big Town

I’m still mourning the loss of summer, and this tune seems to be the perfect reminder of it! This song just makes me want to sit outside, turn the volume up and chill with a glass of wine (or two or ten.) #CountryMusicMonth YouTube with Lyrics

2. “Rie Y Llora” by Celia Cruz

LATIN BEATSSS. This has been a long time favorite of mine for its fun, feisty and upbeat vibe. Azucar! (My musical stylings are very diverse, can’t say I didn’t warn ya!) Music Video

3. “No One Will Ever Love You” by Connie Britton and Charles Esten

From the new ABC show Nashville. It’s the right amount of sap and sentiment necessary for a country love song. You Tube

4. “Better in a Black Dress” by Katie Armiger

Because there’s no better feeling than the perfect LBD (and sassy heels to go with it!) But that’s besides the point, it’s a great song for moving on. Music Video

5. “Spectrum (Say My Name)” (Calvin Harris Remix) by Florence + The Machine

Love the Calvin Harris and Florence combo. Recently rolled down all my windows and blasted this song driving around the city. Definitely not sorry about it. You Tube with Lyrics

6. “Lotta Boot Left to Fill” by Eric Church

Eric is one of my favorite country artists, recently I’ve been listening to his older stuff. This week I’ve been on a kick with some of his older stuff, particularly this song. YouTube with Lyrics

7. “Heads Will Roll” (A-Trak Remix) by Yeah Yeah Yeahs

LET THE DANCE PARTY OF ONE COMMENCE. YouTube

Now Playing: Third Edition

Hey fabulous followers! This is the most random assortment of songs, from different years, singers, styles and genres. But, I adore them all the same. Enjoy!

1. “Black Tears” by Jason Aldean

Jason Aldean decided to be super generous and release his new album “Night Train” the day before my birthday! Yes, in case you were wondering, my birthday is tomorrow, so happy early birthday to me :) Still have to really fully listen to the whole album, but this song IMMEDIATELY jumped out at me. It’s been on repeat since about 10:00 AM today. If he doesn’t release this as a single, I’ll be utterly shocked. It’s about a stripper, and it’s dynamite. YouTube

2. “Dance With Me” by Debelah Morgan

As part of my birthday, I’m sharing with you one of my all time favorite songs. This latin/soul/r&b/dance/tango infusion song is set to the same music as “Hernando’s Hideaway”, but with a modern twist and different lyrics. Told you I like all different types of music! Music Video

3. “50 Ways to Say Goodbye” by Train

Okay, I’m just going to come out and say this, I can’t believe that a Train song made this list. One day I found myself channel surfing the XM radio stations and stopped at this song, without seeing who the artist was. It got excited because an element of the music is reminiscent of Phantom of the Opera. I like musicals, it’s whatever. WARNING: this song is stupidly catchy! Music Video

4. “The Only Way I Know” by Jason Aldean featuring Luke Bryan and Eric Church

Three of my FAVORITE country male singers COLLABO STYLE?! Clearly, it’s destined to make this list. YouTube

5. “Bounce” by Calvin Harris featuring Kelis

This techno/dance song was all over the pre-game mix this past weekend. Drink every time they say bounce. Music Video

6. “Keep On” by Eric Church

I’m obsessed with Eric Church, everyone knows this. And, since it’s my birthday tomorrow, I’m sharing another one of my favorites with you! The cutting, witty lyrics are just a prime example of why Eric is the most nominated artist for the CMA Awards this year. Music Video

7. “The Quest” by Bryn Christopher

Slower, alterna-rock and pensive. It’s a reflective song with a punching, hard-hitting cut to it. Interpret as you will. Music Video

Which one of the above is your favorite? Tweet it at me!
