Okay, guilty pleasure admission time. I’m a pretty big fan and regular watcher of the show “Shake it Up” on Disney channel. Like, I DVR it. Cause Rocky and CeCe are HILARIOUS :-D
So anyway, Shake it Up is also the name of the “show within a show” that Rocky and CeCe dance on. Every episode there’s like a dancer or dance group and they dance to music that was extremely catchy (in the Disney pop kinda way) but that I couldn’t find.
How was this possible? I mean, the songs seemed pretty well produced and such - like more than just throwaway filler for an episode. But I couldn’t find them anywhere! I even found song titles and artists in the credits and it got me thinking…why go through all that trouble recording a song (with some recognizable names…well recognizable to ME), titling it and just throwing it away as a 30-second snippet on a show within a show?
I should have known Disney thinks deeper than that :-) Enter Shake it Up: Break it Down! The soundtrack to Shake it Up featuring (you guessed it) a ton of the songs featured in previous episodes.
Dance/pop that’s contemporary yet family-friendly? Yes, please :-D
Favorite songs: “We Still Here”, “Our Generation”, “Dance for Life”, “Bling Bling”
Dear Ms. Victoria Justice,
If you happen to stumble upon this, please don’t get mad :-) I just thought it would be fun to parody your song, “Freak the Freak Out”, which is, by the way, so awesome! Ridiculously catchy and constantly stuck in my head.
But I digress…I do hope you hear this one day :-) Don’t worry, the lyrics are clean (well, the words “Puke my guts out” and “wee” are in there…but those aren’t too bad right?). I can’t actually sing this song…but I liked the words I made up :-D It’s all about eating way too much :-D
So on a lark I bought this album after previewing a few of their songs. I haven’t actually watched their show on Nick - but this is definitely my new favorite album :-)
I haven’t actually bought a full album in about a year or two. So that’s a big step for me. Tracks to check out: Worldwide, Count on Me (feat. Jordin Sparks), Oh Yeah
