Music Monday #5

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog! I'm Genni and today I'll be participating in my second Music Monday post! Music Monday is hosted by  Lauren @ Always Me.  

Here are the rules:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you've been enjoying lately.  It doesn't have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites - just something you'd like to share with others.  If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).

This past weekend I saw Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again in theathers, and really liked it! Of course, after the movie I had so many ABBA songs in my head. These were the two that were on repeat, and are two of ABBA's biggest hits. I saw the first movie, Mamma Mia, when I was 9 years old, and fell in love with it! I was obsessed with the movie soundtrack, and have seen the film countless of times. I'm ecstatic that it got a sequel, and with such highly produced musical numbers!

Both of these were sung in the first movie as well! For Mamma Mia, Lily James sings instead of Meryl Streep, who sang in the first movie. Lily plays the same character as Meryl, but right after she graduates college in 1979.

 The whole cast chimes in for Super Trouper, and it was so fun seeing them all dance and sing! 

Besides Mamma Mia songs, I have another song that I want to share! God is a Woman by Ariana Grande has been on repeat in my head!

This song is just so catchy, and it's amazing to dance to! Plus, I'm all about the feminist message! I'm not an uber-fan of Ariana Grande, but I do generally enjoy her singles. Her newest music has been more of my taste in comparison to some of her earlier work!

And those are the songs stuck in my head this weekend! There are a couple others, but I'll be talking about them next Monday. :) 

Have you listened to these songs? Do you like them, or are they not your taste? 

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading (and listening)!

  1. I had no idea they were even doing a new Mama Mia until it was already out... Thanks for sharing you favorites with me and linking up. :)

    1. Really? I kept on getting ads on ads for it, haha!

  2. Mamma Mia was so fun! And I love Abba. Great picks!

    1. I'm right there with you Greg! Thanks for visiting. :)

  3. You know the crazy thing? I just bought the Mamma Mia Here We Go Again CD in my local thrift store. The store is closing down and they were having an even bigger sale so CDs were $1.50 apiece. I saw that one and got it for my friend who is a huge ABBA fan. I am not too familiar with Mamma Mia but I'm sure she'll love this CD and the movie. I just got so excited when I saw the CD! 😍😁

    Have a wonderful day, Genni. =)

    1. What a wonderful surprise for your friend! I wasn't too familiar with ABBA until the first movie. To be honest, I only know their hits, but their songs are fun to sing and dance along to! I definitely recommend Super Trouper, Mamma Mia, Lay All Your Love on Me...there are a lot of good ones! :D

      Have a wonderful day as well Alyssa!
