Lennon & Maisy = Music

OMG! I Love these girls... In the whole, If music be the food of love, play on, kinda way. So much so, that I actually typed "OMG". Lennon the, the oldest, has a smokey smooth voice and Maisy's harmonies are on point, their talent is far beyond their years. Alright that's enough from me, check out the videos below. Oh by the way, they're only 12 & 8 years old. 

Lennon & Maisy Stella - Call Your Girlfriend ~ COVER 

Maisy Stella - Secret ~ COVER

I can't tell you how many times I've watched their videos, let's just say that I actually had Call Your Girlfriend on repeat at work... And then played it several more times at home and now as I type this I'm listening to it again. 

From those one hundred or so times I noticed that the video quality is always good and the recording equipment looks pretty solid too. And in one video, dayamn, you see a huge selection of albums on shelves. I figured these weren't just some cute little girls riding a YouTube wave, so, off to the internets I went. I found that they are daughters to Country/Pop duo Brad & MaryLynne Stella (The Stellas). Now that's a family business. I wish these girls and their family the best, I'm sure we'll all hear from them soon, I just hope their music is in line with their covers and the industry doesn't try to make them some silly pop act. We need music on the radio again, there is entirely too much nonsensical talentless noise spewing from speaker these days.

Three more down. #36, #72, #89.

#36 Get paid more or get a new job.

Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! It’s about time! My pockets will be slightly heavier every month.

#72 Play the lottery.

Pretty self explanatory, and horribly unexciting. If I was a big winner this would be a better post.

#89 Transition to Apple (iCal, Notes, Reminders, etc) exclusively.

While I don’t think much of Siri, I do appreciate the ability of having everything I need in one central place. That place being, my Apple products, it’s extremely convenient to have my schedule, pictures, music and notes with me at all times, so I’ve made an effort to add and include everything on my phone and computer.

Time to add $15 to the pot. [See: The List #31].
