I have a lot to talk about tonight!
Okay, several songs. Two good, two guilty pleasures.
1) Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal. I had to kind of acquire a taste for Fleet Foxes, I think starting with their “Helplessness Blues.” Now I can’t stop listening to them! As far as these laid back alternative bands go, they’ve been around for a while and I’m just slow on the uptake. Their self-titled album is beautiful. Very relaxing and perfect to calm you down with this crazy stupid weather we’re having.
2) Of Monsters and Men – Little Talks. I was listening to 92.3 wtts’s New Music Monday and this song came on. I can’t begin to describe how much joy it brings. I love duets! The song is upbeat and fun. Makes me want spring though.
3) Jessie J – Domino. If you were around me when Jessie J’s first song, Pricetag, came on the radio, I probably couldn’t stop myself from complaining about its preachy premise for three times the length of the actual song. When I heard this was her new single, I didn’t give it a chance and changed the channel when it started. But one day I switched it on mid-song and did a double take. Katy Perry, the British edition!? Sure I’ll take it. If you like pop but haven’t given this a listen yet, do so. It’s a fun song. (Give it to 0:40 for the bridge.)
4) Selena Gomes – Love You like a Love Song. It’s a little silly, but you can’t deny Selena’s excellent voice, the retro disco beat, and the fact that Disney actually groomed a wonderful young lady that’s fun to listen to. I crank this song every time it comes on the radio.
I have about a million other songs I’m really into, but these are the selections you get for now.
