I wanna celebrate and live my life

Taio Cruz Quotes

"My mum used to play all the soul classics", he grins, "all the usual interview names like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, but in my case it's true. I remember me singing 'Sexual Healing' to myself when I was about five or six, and my mum telling me I was probably a bit too young for that song".

I've got lots of songs with African vocal samples and weird drum patterns on.

All Over The World ELO

Xanadau a movie with the legendary Gene Kelly, Andy Gibb and Olivia Newton John thrown in for good measure plus the sensational ELO soundtrack.Jeff Lynne is a music legend.

Got a message on the radio, but where it came from I don't really know
And I heard these voices calling all over the world 
All over the world, everybody got the word
Everybody everywhere is gonna feel tonight

Taylor Swift
   Taylor Swift 


Your about to be seduced by her newest single, "Mine," from her upcoming album. 
  Speak Now out October 25.

You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter
You are the best thing that's ever been mine.

Mine reached 1 on the iTunes All-genre Singles Chart and 1 on the iTunes Country Singles Chart within 6 hours of its release, and sold in excess of 297,000 downloads.

In Australia, Mine was the #1 most added track to Australian radio last week and debuted in the Top 10 on the ARIA singles chart.

Taylor's quotes on the song

"Mine" is about a boy from her past. "I was reflecting back on a boy I liked at a certain time," she told Rolling Stone magazine about the story behind the song. "The song is about what it would be like if I actually let my guard down." 

    It's a song that's about my tendency to run from love," Swift said. "Every really direct example of love I've had in front of me has ended in goodbye and in breakups and things like that, so I've developed this pattern of running away when it comes time to fall in love and stay in a relationship and this song is about finding an exception to that and finding the person that makes you believe in love and realize that it can work out."

   Taylor took home four trophies from the Teen Choice Awards – for Choice Female Country Artist, Choice Country Album, Choice Country Song and Choice Breakout Actress. Taylor is also is currently nominated for a 2010 MTV VMA Award for Best Female Video

Put your hands up, take it too the floor,
You already give me the green light baby,
Put your glass up, pour a little more
 you already give me the green light 


David Bowie

With your long blonde hair
and your eyes of blue
The only thing I ever got from you
was sorrow
