Music Monday: Allison Iraheta’s “Holiday”

Women rock. We all know this, and after last week’s offering of “Bitch,” I wanted to keep something with a really great beat, and a woman with rocking vocals.

Enter Allison Iraheta. She was a contestant on Season 8 of American Idol who sadly finished fourth (behind one of the WORST contestants I’d ever heard on that show), but her powerhouse vocals and fuchsia pink hair won me over (especially since she was a TEENAGER when she competed), so when her solo album was released, I downloaded it immediately.

One of my favorites songs from this album is actually a cover from Dilana, and I was hoping that Iraheta would also have an actual video to go along with her cover, but no luck. Regardless, it’s a rocking, fun song, and it’s no wonder Iraheta’s producers had her cover it: both women have similar rocking growls to their voices.

But Iraheta’s version is the one I met and fell in love with, so without further adieu, I give you “Holiday.”

Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!

Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
