Get ready to shake your butt and not understand why.
Now for something a little bit.. darker… maybe less sentimental…. or sentimental in a sweet way.
I was watching SNL, which I normally don’t do so much anymore, because Lena Dunham was on. I really enjoy the show Girls on HBO, so I decided to tune in to see how she did. I suppose her performance as a host was pretty good, but I really was struck by The National. I am ashamed to have never heard them before!
I tweeted to my friends on Twitter to see what songs I should listen to. So many people responded with their favorite songs. I saved all of them on Spotify and I really like them all.
If you haven’t listened to The National yet, here’s your chance. Enjoy!
I’m not moved easily by too many R&B singers. I love R&B, but so many of them sound alike. I actually have always really liked Michael Buble. His voice is amazing and he’s personable.
However, there’s a new voice on the block and it belongs to Sam Smith. Just… listen.
Yes, I have tried to sing his songs and I cannot come even close to his range. It’s literally unbelievable.
He is a solo artist and is also on some songs with Disclosure. I suggest looking him up and keeping an eye on this rising star. He’s only 21!
I still try to share as much good music that I discover as possible, yet Facebook can be kind of a bitch with it’s algorithm and what it actually winds up showing friends. So, I figured I’d just post this latest video/song that I’m obsessed with. Actually, I discovered Chvrches just before I left Boulder and they really were a great band to listen to while driving cross country. I love the lead singer’s voice.
Break beats, fat chefs and neck beards. This dude pretty much represents everything I hold dearly. Action Bronson. Get familiar!
Wow, this song is just incredible. Saw it on one of my favorite hip hop blogs Potholes in my Blog. You’ve gotta give this guy a listen.
Please do a favor and actually buy this when it’s released in May and support real music financially. But for now, enjoy…
My life story, pretty much….
I never saw the morning ’til I stayed up all night
I never saw the sunshine ’til you turned out the light
I never saw my hometown until I stayed away too long
I never heard the melody, until I needed a song.
I never saw the white line, ’til I was leaving you behind
I never knew I needed you ’til I was caught up in a bind
I never spoke ‘I love you’ ’til I cursed you in vain,
I never felt my heartstrings until I nearly went insane.
I never saw the east coast ’til I move to the west
I never saw the moonlight until it shone off your breast
I never saw your heart ’til someone tried to steal, tried to steal it away
I never saw your tears until they rolled down your face.
Take some time out of your day to watch this. So perplexing and so genius.
