Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where I hope that all of the Fall sweets you link up will make Mother Nature stand up a take a listen to my pleas. It’s going to be 97 next Saturday here, people. Sigh.

I have a confession to make. Well, two confessions.

One, I’m addicted to gum. Like, I’d chew it all day if I could. I see it as an eating deterrent. 😉

Two, I love music…but I am not a music person, if you know what I mean. I love listening to the radio…but never think to turn it on in my house. I have no idea who sings the songs I love…just that they sing them well. So, if you happen to say to me, “I love that new Pink song! Don’t you??” I’ll nod and say yes even though I have no clue what you’re talking about, because I love Pink, so I’ve probably heard and love her new song too.

When Trident contacted me about their See What Unfolds Live campaign, where I would get some free gum and one of my readers would get free gum too, I was stoked.

And then I read about the music part. Which scared me a little.

You see, Trident has a new product, Trident Layers, which combine layers of flavor all into one stick of gum. Peach & Mango, Cherry & Lime, or Strawberry & Citrus (the one I’m totally stoked about).

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to chew away.

Trident is getting you in the mood for the collaboration of flavors by talking about some of the greatest music collaborations of all time, starting with Steve Aoki vs. Duran Duran singing “Hungry Like a Wolf”.

{Full disclosure? I had to view the video before I remembered how much I loved this song. See? I have issues. The Real Housewives have rotted my brain.}

I started thinking of other music collaborations I love. DJ Google had to help me, but I was reminded of some that I already have on my iPod, and some that I need to download soon. My favorites:

  • Maroon 5 and Christina Aguilera, “Moves Like Jagger”
  • Bad Meets Evil (Eminem and Royce Da 5’9) and Bruno Mars, “Lighter”
  • Rihanna and Eminem, “Love the Way You Lie”
  • Nelly and Tim McGraw, “Over and Over”
  • John Travolta and Olivia Newton John, “Summer Nights” (of course, how could I have forgotten that one???)
What are some of your favorite music collaborations? I know you can think of some. Help a girl out, I need new music for my iPod.
And, if you can tell me one of your favorite music collaborations…you can enter to win a years’ supply of Trident gum!
I’m so jealous. If you win, I may have to bum some from you.

Good luck! Chew some for me!

Hey, before we get on with the party…

1. I guest posted my love story today for Mackenzie over at Friday Night Date Night. It was so fun to write – brought back all those memories from the first few months with my husband. If you like sap, soulmates, and looooooove, go check it out!

2. Have you entered to win the Kindle Fire HD? All you need to do is register for Online BlogCon. Because you totally want to go to the conference, right????

  1. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill’s “It’s Your Love”… No matter what I am doing I think of the day the hubby and I got married.

  2. I love gum…and the first thing I thought of for music was Elton John and Kiki Dee. I know I am dating myself, oh well!

  3. Hmm I not a huge music person, my husband says that I like music from the “awesome 80s” but I like tons of stuff, but more than music I love gum!!! I love the trident flavors, I actually gave the blueberry citris one and I don’t usually like blueberries very much but I LOVE that flavor the best!

  4. This Duran Duran mash up is sick! I can’t wait to show my bf. I love Maynard (Tool) singing with Deftones and Maynard singing with Rage Against the Machine. Epic cameos.
