Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Literary Father Figures

First off, sorry for basically ditching this blog for a month! I got very busy in May as school was ending, and then proceeded to run out of ideas of what to blog about when I did have time to blog again. But I’m back! And with a new addition to my blog: Top 5 Wednesdays! I’ve seen this all over the blogosphere, and I’ve really wanted to do it, so I finally am! So this was created by gingerreadslainey and hosted by Thoughts on Tomes. To join or learn more about T5W, go to the Goodreads group here. The theme for this week is: favorite literary fathers or father figures.

1. Rubeus Hagrid 

Throughout the Harry Potter series, Harry has a few different father figures, but Hagrid is the one that never wants anything from Harry. Hagrid just wants him to be happy, and for that reason, he’s one of the best father figures I can think of.

2. Hans Hubermann

In The Book Thief, Liesel Meminger has an amazing foster father, Hans, who is able to make her feel comfortable and safe from the moment she gets to his house, and helps her feel calm, even when air raids are occurring. He cares for her so deeply and understands her so well, which makes him a very good father to her. Additionally, he is witty, funny, and musical which makes him a very fun character to read about.

3. Atticus Finch 

To be fair, I haven’t read Go Set A Watchman, and it seems like Atticus becomes a less positive or good person, but judging from To Kill A Mockingbird, he was a good father. Although he was too old to play with Scout or Jem much, he helped them learn important lessons from a young age, and cared about them a lot. This makes him a good father in my book, and one of my favorites.

4. Cinna 

For Katniss, in the first two Hunger Games books, I think Cinna really acted like a father to her, and helped her through hard times. He helped her rebel and feel safe in a time that was very difficult for her. He was such a kind person, and a strong one too. I loved his conversations with Katniss, and the fashionable yet rebellious outfits he made for her.

5. Arthur Weasley 

Arthur worked so hard for his family and cared so much about all of his children, even those that weren’t his own.*cough* Harry *cough*. This goes to show what an amazing father figure he was. I really loved hearing his attempts to use Muggle devices as well, and his constant wonderment at Muggle life.

The Bohemian Rhapsody Book Tag

I’m back with another tag! Again, I wasn’t tagged to do this, and again I saw it on Cátia @ The Girl Who Read Too Much‘s blog, and needed to do it. I love “Bohemian Rhapsody” and the questions are great, so I decided, why not?


1. Mama, just killed a man – a fictional character’s death that really upset you? 

If you have managed to avoid reading the Harry Potter series, then SPOILER ALERT!!!! Other wise, continue reading. There were a lot of deaths in this series I got really sad about, but one in particular was Snape. He was a complex character, and he did some bad things, but ultimately, he died for someone else’s selfish need for power. That scene was so sad to me, especially when Snape told Harry to take the tears so he could fully understand the past. It just shows how much he loved Lily, because he was protecting Harry until his last words by helping him.

2. Carry on, carry on – pick a book that was hard to keep reading, but was worth it in the end? 

I really liked Pride and Prejudice, however, I got really busy while reading it, and given that it’s not a super easy or fast read, this one was a little hard to finish. But it was definitely worth it in the end!

3. Sends shivers down my spine – pick a book with a beautiful spine/cover

18140047

I love the beautiful colors on this cover and I think it matches the book really well. (By the way, if you like books that talk a lot about music or other kinds of media, this is a great book for you!)

4. Goodbye everybody, I’ve got to go – a book that you couldn’t finish? 

Dracula. There were parts of that book I really liked, but other parts that really bored me, and in the end, I didn’t finish it. It also took me forever to read, so I just got bored of it because of that.

5. Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening – which book did you find very, very frightening? 

I don’t read very many scary books, but I read Oblivion by Sasha Dawn a few years ago, and it really scared me. It deals with murder and physical abuse, and so at points it got scary. I remember not sleeping very well the night I had finished it. Although, to be fair, I get scared pretty easily.

6. Bismillah, no! We will not let you go – which book/series do you wish there had been more of?

Pretty Little Liars! Just kidding. There are enough already, I would say that for sure. I know this is a basic answer, but more Harry Potter. Are you ready for an even more basic answer? A Marauders’ Spin-Off series. I know everyone says that, but it’s for a reason! It would be awesome! I want to get to know more about their world, because it seems so fun and all of those characters are amazing. Plus, I would be able to see some characters like Snape that I already know except younger.

7. Mamma Mia, Mamma Mia – which book/series should be made into a musical? 

Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira, because it already talks about music so much, it would be fun to see them perform it live. Plus, the story line is really interesting, so I think it would make a good play.

8. The head-banging bit – which book made you facepalm? 

The Waiting Tree by Lindsay Moynihan felt underdeveloped in parts and all over the place, so probably that book. There were way too many plots happening and ugh!! It was very facepalm inducing.

giphy1
This was me reading this book

9. Oh baby, can’t do this to me baby – pick a moment from a book where you felt like the author was being mean to you?

There were a lot of moments during Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (or just the series in general), where I felt like J. K. Rowling was being mean to me, but Fred’s death felt particularly mean. The Weasley twins always made the hard parts funny, but with one of them gone, it’s just not the same.

10. Nothing really matters to me – which character(s) did you not care about?

I don’t know if this counts, because I just didn’t like the book in general, but I didn’t care about any of the characters in Matched by Ally Condie. They didn’t interest me, and felt generic. To be fair, I don’t think I got even halfway done with it, so if it got better, I wouldn’t know.

A Guide to Surviving Fictional Character Deaths

As you could probably figure out, there will be lots of spoilers in this post, but if you hadn’t guessed…***SPOILER ALERT***

I love books, movies and TV shows (good ones anyway), but usually, at some point, something bad happens to a character. That happened this last Sunday to one of (if not my) favorite characters on Once Upon A Time. (SPOILER!!) And this time, we know there is no saving Hook, it seems. There are a lot of specifics, but basically, they figured out that even the Underworld had no way to save him. (He gets saved in the next episode actually, but I have yet to see it. Either way, it was still hard to deal with when it happened, so just go with it). And I deal with this kind of heartbreak on a relatively frequent basis.

tumblr_lzxfwdsm8g1qanxyso1_r1_250

A character I really cared about dies, and it’s really hard! Ughhh. I think there are a few kinds of character deaths, and different ways to deal with them all. Below I will help you, and we will survive this pain. Our fangirl and fanboy hearts will survive. Somehow.

A character you really loved a lot: Like Captain Hook, maybe there is a character you really love that added a lot to your movie/book/TV show. For example, Hook added humor, sarcasm, sassiness, romance and character development to the show. He was one of the best characters, and had a very good story line. But another character like this for me is Fred Weasley (SPOILER!!) or Rudy from The Book Thief (SPOILER!!).

Ways to get over this kind of death:

  • Let yourself cry (I cried about Hook while taking off my makeup, for example. Maybe not then, though. It makes the eye makeup remover sting. I’m telling you this so you don’t have to experience what I did. It hurts really bad). But really sob. Let yourself be sad. There’s no point in denying the pain you feel.
  • Talk to people about how great the character was so you can properly grieve
  • Do not under any circumstances you ever re-read or watch the part where said character died. Do you want to cry more???
large
I shouldn’t have used this. This scene was too sad, and now I’m thinking about it. Ughhhh NO!
  • Try not to think about it, and when you do, think of the good times. Like when Emma and Hook were together and kissed for the first time, or when Hook had sassy arguments with Regina 🙂

cdv5zh
See? This makes me happy 🙂

giphy
This comeback thooooooo
A character you had mixed feelings about – I think this might be the hardest character to deal with because your emotions are more complex. You are kind of glad, but you also cared about them.

vqmm_f-maxage-0

The best example of this for me is Snape. He was good! But so bad, too! Ugggggh.

Ways to get over this kind of death:

  • Think of all the bad things they did so you don’t feel sad
  • When you’re ready, think of all the good things they did
  • Cry. Cry more.
tumblr_inline_msxvlwe6vb1qz4rgp
Cry until you look like this gif of Leonardo Dicaprio
  • Eat ice cream/other sweets while watching/reading more of the book/show so you can deal with the pain
  • Again, do not re-read/re-watch the part where said character died. Too many feels to handle.

A character you hated – This is the fun one! There’s nothing to get over, you just get to celebrate! For me, this was Dolores Umbridge. I mean, Voldemort too, but especially that pink bitch. She deserved what she got.

Ways to get over this kind of death:

  • Plan a party. Have your friends over, eat some good food, and celebrate! They died! You’re favorite characters are safe!
  • Sing!
  • Dance!
  • Go back to watching/reading your show/book while smiling like a crazy person.

Burn, Re-Write, Re-Read Tag

I didn’t get tagged to do this tag, but I saw it on The Girl Who Read Too Much‘s blog, and it looked so fun, I just had to do it! (You can see her post here).


Rules:

  1. Randomly choose 3 books you’ve read. (Use the ‘random’ option on your Goodreads “read” shelf.*)
  2. For each group of three books, decide which book you’d burn, rewrite, or reread.
  3. Repeat until you complete three rounds (or five!).

Round 1:

Burn: Vicious, for sure. Although I read all 16 books (16!!!), I never thought they were well written. I had fun with them, but I could live without one of the books existing. Plus, there is the first arc of the series, so if I ever wanted to re-read some of the books after burning this, I could just read those.

Re-Write: This is the hard part! I don’t want to re-write either of these books! I guess, ultimately, I would re-write The Princess Bride. I can’t actually think of anything I would change, but I don’t want to re-write any of Like Water for Chocolate.

Re-Read: I read Like Water for Chocolate at what many would probably consider too young of an age. But you can blame that on my mother! She’s the one that told me to read it. I would chose to re-read this book, because when I read it, I think parts of the book went way over my head, and I think I would understand the book better now.

Round 2:

Burn: I know last round was hard, but this round is much harder. I like all of these books for very different reasons, and I don’t want to get rid of any of them! If I had to chose (which is the whole point of this tag!), I would burn Charlotte’s Web. This is because I don’t really remember many differences in the book and movie, so I would be okay with getting rid of the book. I hate that answer! But I would never probably re-read it, so I guess I would be okay with it being gone?! Not really, but this is hard!

Re-write: I really liked Go Ask Alice for the most part, but the epilogue was pretty lame, so I would re-write that. It felt like it was written for a commercial about why not to do drugs. The epilogue had little with the character, and was just a bunch of drug statistics. I would make the ending more satisfactory.

Re-read: I would re-read Stargirl, because I remember loving this book so much when I was in 5th or 6th grade, and I don’t remember really anything about it anymore. I think it would be fun to revisit and remember why I liked it so much.

Round 3:

Burn: I would have to burn a Percy Jackson book?! Nooooooo! This one landed under the burn category for no particular reason. I would never re-write it, because I love it the way it is, but I also don’t see myself wanting to re-read it. (Or at least not as much as The Bad Beginning). So I have to burn it! At least I still have all of the other Percy Jackson books to read! 🙂

Re-Write: I would re-write The Golden Compass, because I liked the story and for a lot of the book, I was very invested in the characters and plot. However, there were a lot of parts that moved too slow for me, so I would re-write parts to make them more exciting.

Re-Read: I would re-read The Bad Beginning, because I have such fond memories of reading this as a kid with my mom. This book is such a fun read, so I can see myself picking it up when I need a easy and adventurous book.

Round 4:

Burn: I would burn Mockingjay. The writing wasn’t as good as in the first two, and I felt like Katniss changed too much. There were parts I liked, but over all, it wasn’t as good as The Hunger Games or Catching Fire. I would rather just burn Mockingjay and re-read the first two.

Re-write: I would re-write The Perks of Being A Wallflower. There is nothing I can think of changing, I just feel that if I dared to change anything in Pippi Longstocking, younger me would be enraged and saddened that I don’t think it’s absolutely perfect.

Re-read: I would re-read Pippi Longstocking, because it’s always so fun to re-read books you read as a kid. I enjoyed reading this so much when I was younger, and I would love to dive into Pippi’s world again.

Round 5:

Burn: I guess I would burn Anything But Typical? I remember liking this book a lot, but this is the option I got stuck with. 😦

Re-write: I would re-write Of Mice and Men, because saying you would hypothetically burn a classic is as bad as actually doing it in some people’s minds, and I would be scared of how mad some people would be at me. Plus, I didn’t hate it, certainly not enough to burn it. But I also don’t really want to re-read it, because I don’t like it enough to do that. Additionally, I did not like the ending. At all. I liked this book for the most part, so I think I would really just change the ending.

Re-read: I would re-read Coraline, because it’s perfect when I want a creepy book. I think the concept is so weird and interesting, so I would love to re-read it, especially around Halloween.

And anyone else who wants to do it! This tag is so fun, so I highly suggest doing it 🙂

Once Upon A Time Recap: Our Decay

I know it’s the middle of the season, but I love Once Upon A Time, so I’m going to start recapping episodes, hopefully every week (although that is a little unlikely). Anyway, let the fangirling commence!


First of all… **SPOILER ALERT!!!** I hope that was enough of a warning for people to notice!

So last episode, we ended with finding out that Hades had some sort of relationship with Zelena in the past. (I couldn’t find a way to do a short, thorough recap, since so much always happens each episode).


In this episode, Our Decay, I cried, (or almost did) three times, so it was an emotional episode. (But it almost always is…) The episode starts with Zelena in Oz, looking at a clip of her mother Cora leaving her on the ground as a baby and saying she was giving her her “best chance.” The Scarecrow, from the The Wicked Wizard of Oz is then called to Zelena, who needs his brain to make a potion to go back in time, something that is extremely dangerous, and has never been achieved. Just as she goes to pull out is brain, Dorothy arrives to save the day! The Scarecrow gets to keep his brain!

642145

This moment also involved one of the best lines of the episode, said by Dorothy: “Well, witch, I’m back!”

Next, we have Hades, up to no good. But honestly, what else is new? He forces Rumple to make a portal that will go to Storybrooke, saying that if Rumple does what he wants, he will tear up the contract, and him and Belle can keep their baby. If not, they will still have to give their child to Hades. He is in search of another baby at the moment however: Zelena’s. In Storybrooke, Zelena has come looking for her baby, disguised as Mother Superior, and when the real Mother Superior comes in, all goes to hell. They get in a big fight, but then a portal opens up, which unknown to them, is the one Rumple was forced to open in the Underworld. To save the baby from Zelena, Belle, who has the baby in her arms, jumps into the portal, and Zelena follows.

Still on the subject of babies, Snow starts to get worried about having left baby Neal in Storybrooke for so long, as is David. While in the Underbrooke Diner, they are told by The Blind Witch that there is a “haunting booth,” where the dead can speak to the living. They exchange some of David’s breath (it’s a big sell in the black market apparently?!) and go to send a message to Neal.

While this is happening, the rest of the crew (Regina, Robin, Henry, Emma and Hook) try to figure out how to defeat Hades, after Liam ruined their last attempt by destroying the book pages about the god of the Underworld. Then Zelena runs onto the scene, looking distraught. She states that her baby is in trouble, after disappointing Regina at the fact that she’s not dead, just visiting. Ya know, just a chill vaycay.

Back in the past, we see Hades make a deal with Zelena to help her make her potion.

o4vupo5
Literally Hades and Zelena at the end of this scene

Hades says he understands how Zelena feels, because his brother, Zeus, is the god of the sky, and got everything. He forced Hades to to rule the Underworld, even stopping his heart, preventing him from living in the real world and leaving the Underworld behind. He reveals that the only way to restart his heart is true love’s kiss. Yes. That again.

ql1n5_s-200x150

Hades wants to help her get revenge, because he wants the same thing. He plans to go back in time and force Zeus to rule the Underworld, so that he can run the world.

Then Robin the Badass Father to the rescue!

tumblr_inline_nzlhnclyqr1s7ije9_500

After hearing his daughter is in trouble, Robin grabs his bow and arrow and goes out to save the day with his girlfriend and his baby mama. That may seem weird, but family ties are complicated on Once Upon A Time.

Here comes a section that broke my heart: Belle finding Rumple in Underbrooke, then finding out he made some huge mistakes…again. Therefore, it’s only a happy reunion for a minute. It’s kind of hard to be a happy couple when one person is so kind, caring and forgiving, and the other one is extremely selfish. Even though Rumple truly loves her, his love for power is equal, if not stronger. He tells her about the contract, which is a good step and also that she’s pregnant. The part that really ripped my heart in two was when Belle’s face changed from happiness to anger and confusion about the fact that he basically sold away their child. She also puts the pieces together, and realizes he is yet again the Dark One. And remember how he became the Dark One again?

death-sword

Yeah. Letting heroes die for his power. He’s such a great person. Not. To make matters with Belle worse, he tells he she never fell in love with the man behind the beast, because there isn’t Rumple without the Dark One. He tells her that she will just have to accept him as both. I wish I could have a husband like him! He’s such a great person and really seems to care for Belle and think about how this affects her. I want her to just leave, but then again they have these adorable moments that make me ship them again and ugh!

tumblr_inline_mljlofqdyb1qz4rgp
So this is basically me…

Heading back into the past, Hades and Zelena enchant Dorothy’s bike in order to find her and the Scarecrow. But not before Hades teaches Zelena what a bike is and they have a really cute moment riding around and laughing. I ship it!

tumblr_m5di6uvfpa1r5u4pu

I know Hades can be so manipulative, but just wait until the end of this post, because you’ll see why I trust him more.

The scene flips to present day, and Robin, Zelena and Regina find the baby! Yay! Belle still had her, so she was safe the whole time. Although he is frightened to, Robin hands his daughter to Zelena, because she says she wanted to feed her. Turns out, she wanted to feed her…and never giver her back. She discovers her magic works again, and sends them out of the way, running away from them with her daughter. They always trust her, and she always betrays their trust. However, she has never looked out for anyone but herself, really, so I’m not surprised. Well her, and now her daughter. A few moments later, Zelena realizes she hurt her baby with her somewhat unpredictable magic (the Underworld makes it that way, since she shouldn’t be able to perform any at all); she gets very sad and begins to cry. This also caused me to get choked up, because she cares so much, and you can tell she feels so awful about it. Character development! Zelena cares for someone else! But I still want her to stay evil, don’t get me wrong.

In the past, Hades and Zelena then arrive at Dorothy’s house and Zelena rips out the Scarecrow’s brain, but surprisingly, doesn’t kill Dorothy. All because she wants everyone to know Dorothy couldn’t defeat her. Oh Zelena, you are so good at being evil.

Now comes the saddest part of the episode. I think. Maybe. The end killed me too, but this just…I couldn’t take it. Regina, Belle and Robin find Zelena, who is hiding in a house with her child. After they yell for a little while to come out she does, with tears in her eyes. She says her baby isn’t safe with her, and begs them to keep her daughter safe. She starts crying hard, not knowing if she will ever see her daughter again. Now do you get why I cried?! It turns out the whole reason she thought her daughter wasn’t safe is because she thinks Hades wants to use her child for the spell to go back in time. (For the spell, you need something that represents innocence).

On a happier note, (that still made me cry a little bit), David and Snow find out from Henry, who wrote it down, because he’s the author, that Neal heard their voices. Neal heard them sing him to sleep through the mobile that hangs above his bed (the unicorn one), which I thought was so cute and made me very happy. And of course, this moment didn’t pass without a inspirational and somewhat cheesy speech about getting home and defeating Hades by Snow. Oh the Charming’s and their super hopeful speeches.

Yup…nothing cheesy about that…

Back in the past, Hades makes a dinner for Zelena and talks about his love for her. He says he no longer wants revenge, he just wants to be with her, and in order to do that he needs her to kiss him, because he believes it will be true love’s kiss. He thinks this because while they were having their oh-so-cute moment on the bike, he felt a flutter in his heart. Zelena almost kisses him, but then thinks he might be manipulating her into freeing him and stealing her potion. He assures her all he wants is to live with her, but eventually leaves, saying she will regret her answer. Wow, Hades and Rumple. Two men that really know how to woo women.

3732441_o

We then see Hades and Zelena in the present, where Hades explains the portal was to get her baby away from the heroes, and that he made the Underworld look like Storybrooke all for her, and that he is still in love with her. She rejects him again, saying she needs to go get her baby as her daughter is no longer in danger. But she has to do it alone. Hades again says he’ll be waiting for her, and that he is still in love with her. I got emotional here, too. Big surprise. I feel like he really does love her, because he was getting emotional and seemed like he really cared for her. However, he is very manipulative.

15 of the Saddest Lyrics I Know

First of all, I want to quickly apologize for how long it’s been since I last posted. I’ve been pretty busy with school and Driver’s Ed, but now I have more free time and it’s spring break! Finally! Anyway, onto the post!


I listen to a lot of music, much of which is really sad. But some of those really sad songs are really beautifully written, so I thought I would share them with you. I’m all apologies in advance if you cry *ba boom chhh*

tumblr_mixvfls98u1r6ly6ao1_400
At least Kurt thinks I’m funny

(If you didn’t get it, All Apologies is a song on the 1993 album by Nirvana, In Utero.) Anyways, on to the crying.

There are going to be four quotes in a row from Troye Sivan, because he likes tearing my heart apart, apparently…

“So what are you waiting for?
‘Cause someone could love you more
I’m just a lost boy, lost boy.”- LOST BOY by Troye Sivan

“Yeah, we knew from the beginning
That this wasn’t never ending
Shouldn’t stay too long
‘Cause we’re both too young
To give into forever.”- LOST BOY by Troye Sivan

Yes. Both of those extremely sad lyrics came from one song. It’s so good, but so sad. 

“‘Distance makes the heart grow fonder’
Said by someone stronger than me.”- DKLA by Troye Sivan

“I don’t mind that I know that you’re wrong
I don’t mind that you think you’re right
All I want is a fight to fight
Anything but quiet.”- THE QUIET by Troye Sivan

jno5ng7jxmjm0
My heart hurts

But we must continue!

“Broken pieces, break into me
So imperfectly what you should be
Lay here, it’s safe here, I’ll let you be broken open
Hide here, confide here so we can be broken open.”- Broken Open by Adam Lambert

This one is a little more inspirational, but still super sad. The whole song is about falling to pieces. If that’s not sad, I don’t know what is.

“Think I got myself in trouble
So I fill the bath with bubbles
Then I’ll put the towels all away
Should’ve never said the word ‘love’
Threw a toaster in the bathtub
I’m sick of all the games I have to play.”- Soap by Melanie Martinez

Here’s another Melanie lyric, this time about rape, capturing the idea in a very chilling way.

“Eenie meenie miny mo
Catch a lady by her toes
If she screams, don’t let her go.”- Tag You’re It by Melanie Martinez

Back to the subject of relationships, here’s another one…

“Wish I could just find a way
To have all your memories erased
‘Cause constantly they’re haunting me.”- Can’t Let You Go by Adam Lambert

“I wish I was like you
Easily amused.”- All Apologies by Nirvana

And more Nirvana…this one is a bit more bittersweet, but still pulls on your heartstrings.

“She loves him more than he will ever know
He loves her more than he will ever show.”- Swap Meet by Nirvana

“Radio – radio
I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights.”- Radio Ga Ga by Queen

More Queen…

“Mama, ooo (anyway the wind blows)
I don’t want to die
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all.”- Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen

This next one deals with war in such an interesting way. It’s another Troye Sivan lyric.

“Let’s go have fun, you and me in the old Jeep
Ride around town with our rifles on the front seat
Fun, you and me in the Middle East
Shooting at rocks, bullets cocked in the midday sun
You and me in the old Jeep
Ride around town with our rifles on the front seat
Fun, you and me in the Middle East
Shooting at rocks, bullets cocked in the midday sun.”- Fun by Troye Sivan

Any song dealing with death is sad, but this one stabs me in my heart. The artist knew he was going to die when he wrote it, and knowing that makes the whole song so much sadder.

“Well I’ll never get my chance
Be ready to live and it’ll be ripped right out of my hands.”- Clouds by Zack Sobiech

This one is not necessarily about death, but I listened to it after someone I knew died, so I associate it with that, and it’s a very sad song any way you look at it.

“But you are not alone
I am here with you
Though we’re far apart
You’re always in my heart.”- You Are Not Alone by Michael Jackson

Ugghhhh…ouch my heart. I don’t know why I do this to myself! But the songs are so beautiful, so I guess I understand why. I made a playlist with all of these songs on it, so go listen to it hereClouds is not included on the playlist because it’s not on Spotify, so sorry for that, but I have the link to listen to it on YouTube here.

Mash-Up Mini Series, Song #12

I was busy yesterday, and completely forgot to write the last post of this series, so sorry for that! Anyway, the last mash-up in this series is older than some of the more recent ones I’ve posted. This is a mix of “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen and “Come Together” by The Beatles.

This is “Fat Bottomed Girls Come Together” by bassebilly. I hope you like it 🙂

Hear the rest of the series:

Mash-Up Mini Series, Song #11

We’re getting close to the end! This is the second to last song in this series, and again, it’s a little more somber. This song is called “Another Lonely Night” by Adam Lambert (yes, again), and “Castle” by Halsey.

This mash-up is “Another Lonely Castle (Mixed Mashup)” by Logan Mashups. I hope you like it 🙂

Listen to the rest of the mash-ups here:

Mash-Up Mini Series, Song #10

I’m starting to realize this title is a little stupid. 12 songs is kind of a lot. Oh well. I’m not changing the name of this series now.

This one I first heard a few years ago. I have a live performance of this by Bruno Mars, but on account of the fact that he didn’t come up with this, I also linked one that wasn’t a live performance. I wouldn’t have thought of these songs going together, but it works really well. The mash-up is: “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson and “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana.

This was uploaded by DI4VOLO, I hope you like it! Now on to the live performance…

This video was uploaded by Purple Wire, so thank you! This performance is so good 🙂 I hope you like it as much as I do.

Mash-Up Mini Series, Song #9

What a surprise! It’s Troye Sivan and Melanie Martinez again! I don’t obsess over any musicians, not at all. Especially not anyone included in this series. (I’m pretty sarcastic, if you haven’t noticed yet). This one is a mash-up of “Fun” by Troye Sivan and “Soap” by Melanie Martinez.

This is “Fun/Soap Mashup” by chrispy_mashups 2. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
