If you’re ever on iTunes, and you see a shared library called “IT’S PIKACHU,” that’s me. Just so you know. If you live in the Apartment Village, you’ll definitely see it. I have two gigs of Bruce Springsteen.
Here are my fabulous musical selections.
New Young Pony Club – Chaos. As much as I value good music with meaningful lyrics, sometimes I can cling to a mood. I like the heavy electronic beat and the sound of the lead singer’s voice. It makes me feel like I’m out CLUBBIN’. (I’ve never done that.)
Neon Trees – Animal. This is just a fun, upbeat song. The music video is cute, too, if you can stand looking at the lead singer’s hair the whole time. I find it taxing.
Vampire Weekend – I’m Goin’ Down (Bruce Springsteen Cover). I first heard this cover on Youtube when fans uploaded cell phone recordings of the live performance. I’m so happy Vampire Weekend recorded it! They did a great job. This prompted me to watch a ton of Springsteen covers.
Bruce Springsteen – The Promise. An answer to Thunder Road, “The Promise” is a huge downer about how following your dreams ends in dead end jobs and mundane routine. It’s a beautifully written song, and it gets me every time.
Taylor Swift – Mine. I’m not a fan of country, but I’m so in love with Taylor Swift, it’s sick. She always puts out top-notch work with great music and lyrics. “Mine” is just another great single for her and I hope she can keep making hits!
So, there is a sampling of the music I’ve been listening to.
