Harvey’s Top 14 of 2014!!!

image

Hello Bubblies!

I’m back with my top 14 favorite songs for 2014 and also what will be on my NYE playlist in days to come. You don’t even have to tell me, I already know that you were jamming out to my #2 song like I have been all year whether you want to admit it or not! Sadly, It’s time for my #1 song out of my top 14 songs of the entire year of 2014!

This next band has never ever ceased to amaze me. Everytime they come out with something they come hard but something about this song had me at “hello.” This song is definitely going down in my book of classics. It carries a blues about it that I personally connect with. I may even perform an acoustic version of this at my next show. SO no more blabbering on here’s my #1 song of 2014 “Counting Stars” by One Republic…Watch below…

Make sure you add this song to your own NYE playlist and any other lists you see fit!

If you enjoyed following my top 14 of 2014 you can re-live it and then some by going on Spotify and searching “Harvey’s 2014 Mixtape” and on that playlist you will find all 14 of the songs I shared with you over the past few days and also a lot of other songs I’ve been jamming out to throughout the year that didn’t make the list unfortunately but are equally as awesome…

Also don’t forget to check out my new single “Regualar Bitch ft. Spade” which is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and Google Play!!!

Have an amazing New Year’s Eve Bubblies, party like a rockstar, but don’t drink and drive!!!

Love Always,

-Harvey Champagne

Hello Bubblies!

I’m back with my top 14 favorite songs for 2014 and also what will be on my NYE playlist in days to come. I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s songs as much as I have throughout this year! Today, It’s time for the #2 song out of my top 14 songs of 2014!

Anyone who knows me knows that when I love a song to this extent you can’t tell me nothing, I could be putting out a forest fire and when songs like this come on I am giving that song 100% of my undivided attention, dancing and singing all over the place where ever I may be. Also, I’ve been known to just blurt out songs like this at the most random moments just because it popped into my head, usually making everyone who hangs around me over it before I am lol…so my #2 of the year is none other than the infectious “BANG BANG” BY JESSIE J FT. ARIANA GRANDE AND NICKI MINAJ!!!! Visual below…

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Okay Okay Okay!!

Make sure you add this song to your own NYE playlist. I’ll be returning tomorrow with NUMBER ONE SONG out of my top 14 songs of 2014! Til then…

Hello Bubblies!

I’m back with my top 14 favorite songs for 2014 and also what will be on my NYE playlist in days to come. If you didn’t already know yesterday’s five I hope you surely got a chance to check them out! Today, however, we are down to the #4 and #3 spots…

This song should be one on everyone’s top 14 or at least one or any tracks from his album. This man has swept everyone’s heart, mind and soul up and away to a special musical place that makes you feel like he’s only sharing it with you…or at least that’s how I felt ha ha ha! This man’s voice is raw, powerful and full of emotion and his lyrics are simply spectacular. There’s not a bad thing I can say about this artist, really…My #4 song is, “I’ve Told You Now” by the incomparable Sam Smith…check out his live performance below…

Y’all see what I mean?!

Anyways, this next song is one I hold very dear to my heart, well, because I wrote it. That’s not the only reason this song made my top 14 though. This indie artist and myself decided to collaborate as songwriters on a song and the result of that was me writing out these super emotional lyrics that I felt so deeply to that I couldn’t find the melody for. When I gave this artist the words she received them and poured the melodies and sounds right out of her heart in such a way that I felt couldn’t be any more perfect. From her atypical vocal arrangements and rhythms to her soulful and sultry voice, my #3 song is “Empty Heart” by Joy Conz…Check out the audio below…

Make sure you check out these songs and add them to your own NYE playlist. I’ll be returning tomorrow with my #2 song out of my top 14 songs of 2014! Til next time…

Hello Bubblies!

I’m back with my top 14 favorite songs for 2014 and also what will be on my NYE playlist in days to come. If you didn’t already know yesterday’s five I hope you got a chance to check them out!

It’s no surprise that one of my most favorite things to do is sing. This next group of songs you would have found me singing along to anywhere from the shower to next to the jukebox at my local bar and everywhere in between. It’s actually been a while since we heard soul and music that we can feel and sing along to, and this year we got blessed with a lot of great music. However, this year marked a “well-worth-the-wait” return for each of these five artists…

#9.) “Regular Bitch ft. Spade”- Harvey Champagne
#8.) “Still Into You”- Paramore
#7.) “Only 1″- Ariana Grande
#6.) “Chandelier”- Sia

And last for today but never least…

#5.) “Therapy”- Mary J. Blige

Make sure you check out these songs and add them to your own NYE playlist. I’ll be returning tomorrow with the next two of my top 14 songs of 2014!

Shout Out A “Regular Bitch” Sunday!!!

Hello Bubblies!!!

Y’all know what day it is, it’s time for our FINAL…

SHOUT OUT A REGULAR BITCH SUNDAY!!!

So without further ado, this week’s story comes to us from Mr. Harvey Champagne himself!!!

Dear Nostalgia,

There are so many words I can utilize to start but I’m going to keep this as quick as I possibly can. For starters, we have always had a very open and honest friendship/relationship. What I don’t understand is how you could have any insecurities surrounding me in the first place AND how so many years later you could still be holding on to some random ass baggage that you never cared to address at the time of our first cycle. Regardless, I got a good handful of exactly what about me you were holding a grudge against and back then I thought it was despicably ridiculous and it’s even more ridiculous now. Speaking of now, you should count your blessings. You should thank Jesus that I forgot how crazy you were the first time we stopped talking because had I remembered there wouldn’t have been any of those good times, jokes and laughs, or nostalgic moments. You wouldn’t have gotten the chance to show off your “new” life like you’re some rich, privileged person above everyone else. Although, you know that I know that you’re simply the same chick that used to throw that ass around for dollars from the 50 million men you had rolled around your wrist. I blamed you for the drama the first time but this time I couldn’t blame nobody but myself. I let you back in and gave you the benefit of the doubt. I was the dummy this time and that’s okay. I actually applaud you though because you are the ONLY person that has ever fooled me twice. You got me so good that I had to sit down and write a song about it. I have always been super supportive and non-judgmental with you but now all that has flown out the window. So with that said, you will never exist to me again and if you are wondering if this song is about you? It is…

Goodbye,

Harvey Champagne.

Welp, there you have it Bubblies!!! Make sure you keep an eye on us cause we’ll be revealing the release date for “Regular Bitch”-Featuring Spade very very soon!

Y’all know what day it is, it’s time for…

SHOUT OUT A REGULAR BITCH SUNDAY!!!

So without further ado, this week’s story comes to us from (S.T.) in Chi-Town, IL!!!

I’m going to get a little deep. A regular bitch to me is someone who is ignorant to reality. Someone who is narcissistic and not in a prideful way but in a desperate way. Someone who thinks their looks and material things can mask the fact that they are empty inside and have no real personality. Someone who lies, not with bad intent, but to be “accepted” by others. Someone who is sad and miserable and can never be happy because they don’t have the first clue to who they are so how the hell can they find happiness for themselves. Someone who skims by in life with merely a presence but have nothing to really offer. Someone who, no matter how much you guide them, can’t grasp the idea of a real friendship/relationship. That to me is a regular bitch and after having my share of experiences I only choose to be surrounded by the extraordinary, amazing, irregular people because anything less and I’ll go insane. Caution: The Regular Bitch.

DANG!!! You are like a Regular Bitch Guru Master, cause you took it to a whole new level…spiritually!

Stay tuned the following Sunday for the next entry on…

A Regular Bitch is a phony, fake, fraud and a sham. A Bitch who is unjustifiably self-declared as a more fabulous and classy person than everyone else, but is merely nothing more than a basic or common bitch…

Y’all know what day it is, it’s time for…

SHOUT OUT A REGULAR BITCH SUNDAY!!!

So without further ado, this week’s story comes to us from (G.P.) in Kansas City, MO!!!

I looked up Regular Bitch in the Webster’s dictionary and found a picture of my good girlfriend (NAME.REMOVED)!, and the first definition was in regards to how she loves to give every couple on the planet relationship/marriage advice like she’s an “expert” or “counselor or something. First of all, she has worked in retail her whole life. Second of all, she is too single to be alive and has been most of her life. And last of all, every man in KC she makes eye contact with she immediately runs to Craigslist on their missed connections page to see if they are looking for her and they are usually…NOT!!! Come on guys who does that ever? She does, that’s who.

HAHAHAHA! She better STOP!!! That is all…

Stay tuned the following Sunday for the next entry on…

SHOUT OUT A REGULAR BITCH SUNDAY!!!
