One of the daily routines is going through a good number of news sources for the SkyscraperCity Flipboard Magazine. Twitter is one of them (#skyscraper) and even though there is a lot of trash being shared, occasionally you’ll find something unexpected or even interesting. Then there is also the category of topics that get shared all the time or have nothing to do with what I’m looking for. And that’s what we’ll be focussing on today. Here is the top 5.
#5. the song Skyscraper by OK go
Music is always big on social media, so this one is no exception. The video clip of Chicago group called OK Go features a montage of dance moves through a series of colorful urban backdrops. Not bad, really, but where is the skyscrapers?
#4. Connecticut Gov: If We Don’t Take Guns More People Will Commit Suicide
I have no idea why this guy keeps popping up in the skyscraper feeds, but apparently some system thinks it’s relevant to skyscrapers.
#3. Floating Skyscrapers
Floating Skyscrapers is a 2013 Polish drama film (Polish title: Płynące Wieżowce) which follows the story of a guy named Kuba, an aspiring professional swimmer who falls in love with another man to the disapproval of his mother and to the surprise of his girlfriend, who tries to hold on to him and their relationship. It’s the first Polish production that primarily deals with the topic of same-sex relationships. Why the movie has ‘skyscrapers’ in the title is everyone’s guess.
#2. Images that have been retweeted thousands of times already
This one is actually relevant but has been shared so many times it becomes annoying. Please no more old school stunts, Dubai fog, Madrid super moons and selfies taken on top of spires. We get it already.
#1. The song Skyscraper by Demi Lovato
There is one thing worse than a song containing the word skyscraper in the title, and that is a song containing the word skyscraper in the title, sung by teen star Demi Lovato. The song, simply called skyscraper, peaked at #10 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and had got its own extensive Wikipedia page. It’s a ballad about, you know, staying strong and believing in yourself and whatnot.
If tweets by teenage fans were bad enough, things started to take a turn for the worse when Katy Perry tweeted how much she liked the song.
The new song Skyscraper by @ddlovato is pure perfection. Her voice is one of the BEST undiscovered beauties. Can't wait for the full record.
