Pumped Up Kicks - Foster The People

Robert's got a quick hand
He'll look around the room
He won't tell you his plan
He's got a rolled cigarette hanging out his mouth
He's a cowboy kid
Yeah, he found a six-shooter gun
In his dad's closet hidden in a box of fun things
And I don't even know what
But he's coming for you, yeah, he's coming for you

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run, outrun my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet
x1

Daddy works a long day
He be coming home late, yeah, he's coming home late
And he's bringing me a surprise
Because dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice
I've waited for a long time
Yeah, the slight of my hand is now a quick pull trigger
I reason with my cigarette
And say your hair's on fire
You must have lost your wits, yeah

All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run, outrun…

Tonight,Tonight - Hot Chelle Rae

It’s been a really really messed up week
Seven days of torture, seven days of bitter
And my girlfriend went and cheated on me
She’s a California dime but it’s time for me to quit her

La la la, whatever, la la la, it doesn’t matter, la la la, oh well, la la la

We’re going at it tonight tonight
There’s a party on the rooftop top of the world
Tonight tonight and were dancing on the edge of the Hollywood sign
I don’t know if I’ll make it but watch how good I’ll fake it
Its all right, all right, tonight, tonight

I woke up with a strange tattoo
Not sure how I got it, not a dollar in my pocket
And it kinda looks just like you
Mixed with Zach Galifianakis

La la la, whatever, la la la, it doesn’t matter, la la la, oh well, la la la

We’re going at it tonight tonight
There’s a party on the rooftop top of the world
Tonight tonight and were dancing on the edge of the Hollywood sign
I don’t know if I’ll make it but watch how good I’ll fake it
Its all right, all right, tonight, tonight

Do I Need a Partner for Dancing?

Image
There are different kinds of exercises that you can do. According to Ken Richards, who happens to be a professional dancer and spokesperson for US Dance, which is the US governing body of DanceSport (a competitive ballroom dancing), it is hard to find an exercise that helps you more than dancing as far as health and wellness is concerned. Shadow Dancing is possible and you can enjoy it at your home. There are some special elements of dancing. Good examples of these are lead and follow, which call for a partner.

However, there are some things that you accomplish on your own. You can get started training all by yourself. You can learn how to hear the beat and phrasing. You can learn the musicality and music identification or even the dance identification. And it will not be much of a problem if you wish to find step patterns or syncopations. Finding choreography is easier these days and your friends can give you the kind of ideas you need for dancing along. In minimal time, you can move …

Optimizing your search engine results brings more visitors to your site by making your website more prominent in the search engine results. By following these simple tips, you can optimize your search engine results and bring more attention to your website.

Content on your website should pinpoint your target audience. A website that finds bingo locations for senior citizens should be designed for senior citizens to use, for example. Do not deviate much from your target audience, or you may lose them.

Katy Perry - Firework (lyrics and Video)

Firework - Katy Perry

Do you ever feel like a plastic bag
Drifting through the wind
Wanting to start again

 Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
 Like a house of cards
 One blow from caving in

 Do you ever feel already buried deep
 Six feet under scream
 But no one seems to hear a thing

 Do you know that there's still a chance for you
Cause there's a spark in you

 You just gotta ignite the light
And let it shine
 Just own the night
 Like the fourth of July

 Cause baby you're a firework
Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
 As you shoot across the sky-y-y

 Baby you're a firework
Come on let your colors burst
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
You're gonna leave 'em fallin' down-own-own

 You don't have to feel like a waste of space
 You're original, cannot be replaced
If you only knew what the future holds
After a hurricane comes a rainbow

 Maybe you're reason why all the doors are closed
 So you could open one that leads you…

Journey into the Valley of the Kings

Image
The Valley of the Kings has always been a hidden treasure in Egypt, perhaps because this is how they were designed. The tombs of the royalty in Egypt were hidden from the public eye to protect them from grave robbers over the years. However, with modern discovery the tombs have become a major tourist attraction.

There are over 60 tombs within the Valley, which branch off and travel into the depths of the cliffs. Most of the tombs are open to the public, however some are not opened, and others are often close down for restoration and generally maintained every few years to keep them in a safe state. The tombs were built into a maze to deter those who tried to steal from them. They have been raided several times over the years, and have also endured the wear and tear of the elements, as well as tourism.

By far the most famous and popular tomb is that of King Tutankhamen. While it is worth a stop by, you will not find the majestic buria…
