Ever Wonder?

The other day someone tweeted,” I always wonder what people are listening to when I walk past them.” I have to admit I always question this too! So I thought why not write about what I have been listening to lately. I listen to a lot of different music, and hopefully some of these artists are new to you! I love spreading new music.

I have an issue with just narrowing down music choices, so instead I will tell you what my top five pandora stations I have been listening to lately are!

1. Fitz and the Tantrums
I mentioned them on a previous blog. I first heard about them when going to Jimmy Fallon. They are actually pretty good live, which is sometimes hard to come by with the singers today. Some of my favorite songs they sing are Moneygrabber, Don’t Gotta Work It Out, and Breakin’ The Chains of Love. Their Pandora is awesome and has songs from a ton of different people like Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong to Adele and Kate Earl. It’s really funky and I love it!

2. J. Cole
I’ve been listening to J. Cole for a while. Some people don’t think he’s that great, but I think he’s pretty awesome. His new single Work Out has an awesome beat and is great for just listening to in the car or working out, but I especially like his songs Lost Ones and Nobody’s Perfect, because I love the lyrics. I got to see him at the celebrity basketball game. He’s not that great at basketball but he’s good at rapping and on his Pandora you can hear artists like Drake, Tyga, and Kid Cudi.

3. The Xx
The Xx is a band that isn’t really well known but has awesome songs. Songs such as Intro and Shelter are some of my favorites from them. Most of their songs are pretty chilled out and mellow, but I think that is what I like about them. On their Pandora you can here songs from the Pixies, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and Radiohead.

4. Dave Matthews Band
I can never get enough Dave Matthews Band. People consider Dave fans as bandwagoners, but thanks to my sister being ten years older than me I have been listening or hearing Dave since I was five, and I have grown to love him. Plus he’s coming back to Indy this summer, which last summer he didn’t and I was pretty much devastated. What’s great about Dave is that he is awesome live and you’ll have an awesome time whether sunshine or pouring rain. Some of my favorite dave songs are Crash Into Me, #41, and Two Step. I pretty much like a lot of Dave’s old stuff. On his Pandora you can hear from bands like Blind Melon, Spin Doctors, and live acoustic versions of popular songs.

5. Florence and the Machine
I love Florence and the Machine. I have not seen her live, but I have heard live. She was in Indy one time and her concert was outside and I could hear it and she sounded awesome! Her voice is pretty much insane, and you get this extreme full sound from all her songs. Artists you might hear on her Pandora would be Bon Iver, City and Colour, and Mazzy Star.

One other thing I wanted to mention before I go off to do homework! If you have time it takes only 5 minutes to do both. Vote for Ronald Nored on the Lowe’s Senior Class Award, he’s been slipping a little bit in the ranks and he definitely deserves the win! Also vote for our mascot Blue 2! He’s up for the Shorty Awards and is currently in second place! Click on the links to vote!

Living on Butler campus you start to take certain things for granted. Like the fact that it only takes you tops maybe 5 minutes to get to class. Or the fact that we have history in our own backyard with Hinkle Fieldhouse. Or maybe it’s the fact that our teachers take the time to really make sure we are understanding our lessons and class. But something that may not get mentioned a lot that we take for granted is our Health and Recreation Complex or HRC.

If you go to a big state school like Purdue or IU your health center may be far away from you. Although a lot of us think that the HRC is far away it really is only a ten minute walk. Yes, here at Butler 10 minute walks are long for us. We are spoiled. The HRC is awesome. With everyone trying to lose weight or get toned for Spring Break there has been a lot of people at the HRC.

I really like the track at the HRC, and now I am obsessed with the bikes there. If anything I think working out is such a great way to destress and refocus on school work or anything else that needs to be done. It’s awesome though because as a student at Butler you get to use all the HRC offers, whether it be classes or even the pool! It’s great! Here’s a video about the HRC!

One more thing if everyone could do something for me that would be amazing. If you didn’t know one of our fellow Butler students is up for the Lowe’s Senior Class Award. It’s Ronald Nored! He is a very deserving guy and is awesome, so if you could take the time to vote for him that would be great!
