After being tagged by Patrick I thought this might be fun…
“List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your 7 songs. Then tag 7 other people to see what they’re listening to.”
In no particular order:
01. “Blankest Year” – Nada Surf
This song came on randomly about a week ago and I have been listening to it non-stop – it’s such a catchy song.
02. “Moorestown” – Sun Kil Moon
I recently saw Mark Kozelek (the lead singer of Sun Kil Moon) perform and this was one song that stuck out from the show. Most of their music sounds like this – it’s the perfect music when you want to unwind.
03. “Medicine Wheel” – Aimee Mann
I’m having a hard time getting into Aimee’s new album “@#%*! Smilers” but this song is an exception because it’s classic Aimee.
04. “Firecracker” – Ryan Adams
“Well, everybody wants to go on forever. I just wanna burn up hard and bright. I just wanna be your firecracker and maybe be your baby tonight.”
Ryan Adams is pretty much a music god in my book and I can’t help but love him even more when he plays the harmonica.
05. “Eyes” – Rogue Wave
I first heard this song on Heroes only to realize that it’s been in my iTunes library for who knows how long. Mellow and sweet is a good way to describe this song.
06. “My Only Offer” – Mates of State
I recently discovered this band through a fantastic music ‘zine called Paste. I later previewed their album “Rearrange Us” at ear x-tacy and it’s now on my list of albums to buy. Overall the song is pretty catchy – go download it!
07. “With a Little Help from my Friends” – Jim Sturgess & Joe Anderson
Have you seen “Across the Universe”? If you answered “no”, please watch it! This is a cover of the popular Beatles song and these two actors manage to pull it off. Feel free to watch this video too. The video version of the song is slightly different.
