Tunes & Tales: Christina Aguilera

Today's featured album is a major throwback for me. And when I say major, I mean that I was probably in the fifth or sixth grade when I first heard of Christina Aguilera and fell hard for her debut album. What in the world made me think of this album? Well, when Rachel & I embarked on a road trip to see Kelly in Cape Cod, we started adding a few older tunes to our road trip playlist. And Come On Over (All I Want Is You) was one of those songs! Once I started listening to her stuff again, I just knew I had to highlight this album in particular to start with.

VIBE: old school 90s pop
WHY: I just really liked Christina Aguilera back in the day.
TRY: Come On Over is the obvious choice, but I also really like What A Girl Wants.

Genie in a Bottle / The Forbidden Wish
If you wanna be with me
Baby, there's a price to pay
I'm a genie in a bottle
You gotta rub me the right way
If you wanna be with me
I can make your wish come true
You gotta make a big impression (Oh yeah)
Gotta like what you do

What A Girl Wants / Last Will and Testament
Like a rock you waited so patiently 
While I got it together 
While I figured it out, yeah yeah
I only looked but I never touched 
'Cause in my heart was a picture of us 
Holdin' hands, makin' plans and it's lucky for me you understand

I Turn To You / Open Road Summer
When I'm lost in the rain,
In your eyes I know I'll find the light
To light my way.
And when I'm scared,
And losing ground,
When my world is going crazy,
You can turn it all around.
And when I'm down you're there
- pushing me to the top.
You're always there,
giving me all you've got.
For a shield from the storm,
For a friend, for a love
to keep me safe and warm
I turn to you.

So Emotional / Onyx
You take me high or low, you know 
I'm never sure which way you're gonna go 
You're such a mystery to me 
But baby hot or cold, you got a hold 
Of my imagination 
I think you know what I mean 
You make me feel so emotional

Come On Over (All I Want Is You) / The Score
I want you to know you could be the one for me (Yes, you could)
You've got all I'm looking for
You've got personality
I know, you know, I'm gonna give you more
But boy, you know, I never felt this way before
So, boy, won't you come? Won't you come
And open the door? Listen to me.
All I want is you (Come over here, baby)
All I want is you (You make me go crazy)

Reflection / Every Last Word
Look at me 
You may think you see 
Who I really am 
But you'll never know me 
Every day 
It's as if I play a part 
Now I see 
If I wear a mask 
I can fool the world 
But I cannot fool my heart 
Who is that girl I see 
Staring straight back at me? 
When will my reflection show 
Who I am inside?

Love for All Seasons / The Bronze Horseman
I'll be there for you
Keepin you warm 
Through the storm
I'll guide you
Stand by you until the stars
Fall from the sky
When you call me
I never hesitate 
Makin you wait for my love
Never lie love
It's something that I just can't deny
I'll read your each and every feelin
When you need me to
So now I gotta let you know
This love's for you

Somebody's Somebody / Isla and the Happily Ever After
I want a love to call my own 
I want someone that I can hold 
Want someone wanting me 
Wanna feel how it feels to be 
Somebody's somebody

When You Put Your Hands on Me / A Court of Mist and Fury
I just know 
When you put your hands on me 
I feel sexy 
And my body turns to gold 
I just know 
When you put your hands on me 
I feel ready 
And I lose my self-control 
When you put your hands on me

Blessed / Wait For You
When I think how life used to be, 
Always walking in my shadows. 
Then I look at what you've given me,
I feel like dancing on my tip-toes. 
I must say everyday I wake
And realize you're by my side; 
I know I'm truly... 
Blessed for everything you've given me
Blessed for all the tenderness you show

Love Will Find A Way / Infinite
No one ever said that
Love was gonna be easy 
Gotta take the ups and downs
The in-betweens 
If you take this journey
Gotta give yourself completely 
Never let nobody ever step on our dreams

Obvious / Shuffle, Repeat
Can you hear it in my voice?
Was it something I let slip?
Does the whole world know?
Isn't it obvious? 
I'm the one who's in control 
Now Im acting like a fool 
Do my feelings show? 
Is my face aglow? 
Isn't it obvious?
