H is for HIMYM songs


Obviously, I still have the How I Met Your Mother hangover. So for this A-Z Blogging Challenge entry, I’ll just share my top 5 HIMYM songs. 🙂

Note: The following songs are HIMYM originals. I would post another entry containing songs that were used in the show. Soon.

5. Two Beavers Are Better Than One – Robin Sparkles and Jessica Glitter

Season 6, Episode 9. The gang stumbles upon Robin’s old show “Space Teens,” where she is co-stars with her then-best friend Glitter. In the end, they reunite at a Canadian bar and sing this song after many years.

4. Classic Schmosby Remix -Ted Mosby

Season 7, Episode 1. Ted’s high school best friend Punchy makes this auto-tuned video from Ted’s messed-up best man speech. It’s pretty mean, but I like it.

3.  Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit – Barney Stinson

Season 5, Episode 12. Barney is torn between getting it on with a bartender or preserving his massive collection of suits. The whole thing results to an all-out street performance.

2. You Just Got Slapped – Marshall Eriksen ft. Barney Stinson

(Ugh, can’t find the exact scene for this. Boo)

Season 3, Episode 9. Marshall tags Thanksgiving as “Slapsgiving” for Barney, and puts up a “slap countdown.” Lily postpones Slapsgiving, but at the last few seconds of the countdown, she brings it back and Barney receives the ultimate slap of his life… which brings us to this song.

1. Let’s Go To The Mall – Robin Sparkles

Season 2, Episode 9. Robin hates malls. The gang discovers the reason why: she was a teenage pop star in Canada, with a minor hit that she had to sing in malls ALL THE TIME.

So there you have it. This is just my personal top 5. Do you have yours? Share it with me! 🙂

E is for Endings



“Everything has to come to an end, sometime.” 

― L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz

Endings. Why do they even exist?

They say endings are bittersweet. An end signifies a complete stop, yet it also symbolizes a new beginning. It’s weird how endings are good and bad at the same time. But, being the melodramatic people that we are, we tend to look at endings as as something that shouldn’t have happened in the first place.

Like How I Met Your Mother’s season– and show– finale.

This A-Z Blogging Challenge entry is not just about one of my super favorite shows’ ending, though. It’s about ALL the endings in the world. It’s just that HIMYM’s last episode is still piercing my heart. </3

Everything has its own ending, but as much as I want to move on from the whole “HIMYM-is-gone-long-live-Mosby-and-Scherbatsky” thing, I don’t want HIMYM to end. I know I can watch and rewatch it on my laptop, but it’s never gonna be the same.

Plus, I didn’t like the ending. I’m a solid Ted-Robin fan, but them getting back together doesn’t make sense anymore. Not after nine seasons of change and chaos. I appreciate the fact that the creators stuck to their original plan, but a better ending would’ve been better.

For me, it’s better if they didn’t “kill Tracy, but still let Robin and Barney be themselves– divorced and independent, that is. But that’s just me. I heard there’s gonna be an alternate ending on DVD, so I hope that makes up for the one we already saw.

I’m sad because it wasn’t the kind of ending we expected, but personally, I’m sadder because it’s gone. No more HIMYM season 10 to get excited for. No more Ted, Robin, Barney, Marshall and Lily hanging out at MacLaren’s. No more “Hey Beautiful” song. Oh well. An ending’s an ending. We have to move on.

And oh, I was wrong. This entry is just about the HIMYM finale.

Happy blogging (and watching)!
