This week I'm spotlighting Justin Timberlake.  I've practically grown up on Mr. Timberlake beginning with his days in 'NSYNC through his present day career.  While he's not exactly a go-to artist for me, I can't help but enjoy his music (and hearing how much it's changed over the years while growing with him) - plus his live performances.  The two songs below are some of my recent favorites.

"The Name Game" by Shirley Ellis (1964) - This is one of my favorite novelty songs!  It's just so much fun!  Mine would be Lauren, Lauren, Bo-Bauren/ Banana fana fo-fauren/ Fee fye mo-mauren/ Lauren!



"The Name Game" by The American Horror Story Cast (January 2, 2013) - Have I ever mentioned how much I like American Horror Story (I've watched the first three seasons, so far)?  The song as performed by Sister Jude using the names of the patients during the tenth episode of season two (Asylum) as a result of the hallucination.  This is easily one of my favorite scenes from the season!  I love how the color palette brightens up - for a moment Briarcliff doesn't look quite as scary.

  1. I love when they did The Name Game in AHS!! That was my favorite part of that season. Other than that I didn't really care for Asylum really. :/ Great Music Monday!!

    1. Thanks for linking up, Erin! I really liked how it began versus how it ended up.

  2. What's your favorite AHS season? I think I was partial to the first season as a whole (which makes you love Tate, but then makes you horrified when you discover all that he's done), but I loved the overall design, setting, and concept of Coven. I was and am still obsessed with New Orleans and feminist history (which includes witchcraft) so Coven's premise really spoke to me.

    1. I agree with you - Murder House has been my favorite of the three seasons that I've seen so far with Coven in second place, and Asylum coming in last place. Overall, my favorite actor throughout has been Evan Peters, especially as Tate!
