official opinions: Costumes for the musically-inclined

Who wouldn’t want to wear this?

Every year I have trouble deciding what I want to be for Halloween.  You’d think after 27 years of celebrating the same holiday on the same date I’d think ahead, but it’s like I’m surprised every time.  If you’re like me, then you probably don’t have a costume planned yet either- well, never fear. The Stitely staffers (and a few friends) put their heads together and came up with a fantastic list of music-related costume ideas. Enjoy!

Katy PerryClick here for directions on how to make this costume.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart– Don’t forget to practice the “Amadeus” laugh.

Michael Jackson– This costume is always a “Thriller.” (Sorry, had to do it.)

“Devil in a Blue Dress”– Step 1: Wear blue dress. Step 2: Add devil horns & tail.

“We are Devo”

Devo– All you need is a flower pot and a “whip.”

Bob Dylan– Click here to get a how-to and links to important accessories.

The White Stripes– Super simple couples costume- just wear black, red and white.  Add a black wig and drumsticks.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne– Another fun couples costume.

The original tiny dancer

Elton John– Don’t forget the shades.

Janis Joplin or Jimi HendrixEasiest costumes in the world!  Bust out your fav bell-bottom jeans or go to a thrift store, pair with a psychedelic shirt, and put a headband or bandana around your head.  Don’t forget to accessorize: for Janis bring out a whiskey bottle and for Jimi use a real or inflatable guitar.

A Mariachi Band– Grab 4 friends and a sombrero.

iPod– Now THIS takes talent!

official opinions: Asia’s Top 10 Songs of 2011

Hey guys! My name is Asia Elsner and I am the new Marketing and Multimedia Intern at Stitely. You’ll learn much more about me next week but I wanted to introduce myself by sharing my top songs of this past year. Even though it’s 2012, these 2011 hits are still on repeat on my iPod!

 

#10 –  No Church in the Wild

Artist: Jay-Z and Kanye West feat. Frank Ocean

Album: Watch the Throne

This song is just killer. I start it before my workout and it gets me so pumped!

 
 
 
 

#9 – Skyscraper

Artist: Demi Lovato

Album: Unbroken

After Lovato was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and spent some time in rehab, the former Disney pop star came back with this amazing song showing everyone how she’s stronger than ever.

 

#8 – Pumped Up Kicks

Artist: Foster the People

Album: Torches

Though recorded in 2009, Foster the People got initial attention when this song appeared in an episode of the popular TV series Entourage. It went on to reach #1 on Billboard’s Top US Alternative Songs in 2011.

 
 

#7 – We Found Love

Artist: Rihanna

Album: Talk That Talk

Rihanna is simply unstoppable! This song is the lead single coming off of her latest album, Talk That Talk. Her previous album, Loud, featured number one hits like, “S&M,” “Cheers (Drink to That)” and  “Only Girl (in the World)” (All of which almost made the list!)

 

#6 – Paradise

Artist: Coldplay

Album: Mylo Xyloto

I am so impressed with Coldplay’s newest CD, Mylo Xyloto. Lead singer Chris Martin’s vocals are hauntingly captivating and give this new song that classic Coldplay charm. Also, the video features Martin in an elephant suit trying to find his way home to his herd of elephant band members. So there’s that.

 

#5 – Rumour Has It/Someone Like You

Artist: Glee Cast

Original Artist: Adele

Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 7

Simply put, Adele + Glee = MUSICAL GENIUS.

 

#4 – The One That Got Away

Artist: Katy Perry

Album: Teenage Dream

It’s a rare thing when a Katy Perry song gives me chills but when it happens, it is so good. The video tells an amazing story in a short five minutes about a lost love. Get the Kleenex ready.

 

#3 – Midnight City

Artist: M83

Album: Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming

This is my favorite song to put on when I am about to go out for the night. And as with many other songs during 2011, there is a great sax solo at the end!

 

#2 – Why I Love You

Artist: Jay-Z and Kanye West feat. Mr. Hudson

Album: Watch the Throne

This is the only album to have two songs on my Top 10 list and it is well deserved! Much of the song samples the song, “I ❤ You So” by Cassius, one of my other favorite songs.

 

#1 – Who You Are

Artist: Jessie J

Album: Who You Are

Jessie J has a beautiful way of telling stories through song, making her my favorite artist of 2011. Her unique vocals carry a power that, in my opinion, no other artist can compare with.  This song stands out because of its positive message and its ability to showcase Jessie J as the amazing vocalist she is. She has the quirk of Lady Gaga with the musical talent of Adele.

“It’s okay to not be okay…tears don’t mean you’re losing, everybody’s bruising, just be true to who you are” – Lyrics from Who You Are
