There is nothing I love more than good coffee, great music, and a heavy dosage of nonstop laughter.It’s usually nice when I can have one of those delights on it’s own, but getting all three together is a blast! Now of course I might not always have a latte in my hand, but it’s still great when comedy and great music come together. I’m not even a big dance enthusiast, but I do love dancing, laughing, and just having a great time getting lost in the music. I’d rather be dancing and laughing with a group of friends, rather than watching a dance performance; that just isn’t my thing.
But I do enjoy when someone can combine dance with comedy and have a great time. So, have you guys heard of Nathan Barnatt? Perhaps I’m the only person out there who hasn’t seen this guy dancing on YouTube (I highly doubt that), but his videos are hilarious! He has an entire serious of comedic sketches where he dances to some great songs, including Madeon’s “Pop Culture” mashup and Yelle’s “Que Veux Tu.” His dancing isn’t the best in the world, but his vibrant energy is amazing! It makes you just want to get up and dance along with him.
He is actually a comedian and actor, but he has had great viral success with his comedic sketches. This guy is so funny, well in my opinion. I’m not too hard to please when it comes to laughter, except when it comes to Tyler Perry films. I just don’t find them funny, but that is a story for another day! So, yeah, Nathan Barnatt…he is funny! I just love how odd and awkward he looks while dancing. Not to mention, the faces he makes are epic!
Check out his music videos for “Pop Culture” and “Que Veux Tu,” and be sure to visit his YouTube for more sketch comedy. It’s dancing, comedy, and great music all in one spot; I love it!

While I was working out the other day, I heard this song on the Music Choice Dance/Electronica channel. I was working up a major sweat and had my eyes close while knocking out the last 5 minutes of my time on the bike. I was so exhausted, but this song came on and it caught my attention.
I finished my work out and got off the bike, then danced around my room like a happy little girl (I do that a lot, just dancing around my room and singing…it’s fun!).The song is sung entirely in French and it has been awhile since I took French for two years in high school. The song is called “Que Veux Tu” and it’s by French band Yelle, which is the name of the sassy lead female singer. Que veux tu translates into “what do you want” and the song is pretty much talking about admitting your in love, but the guy at first is too blind to see it. Read the translated lyrics at this link http://lyricstranslate.com/en/que-veux-tu-what-do-you-want.html and check out the video!
I love listening to music that’s in a different language. I remember hearing O-Zone “Dragostea Din Tei” when I was in high school and this Greek kid introduced me to their music. Then T.I. sampled it for “Live Your Life”, but I had already heard the song when I was younger. Even if you don’t know the lyrics or understand it, you can still enjoy the music.
This isn’t French, but it’s another one of my favorite songs in Hindi language. The beat is dope and I watched the movie on Netflix Rab Ne Banadi Jodi. The song is called “Haule Haule”.
