Spring Mini-Mix : 2011

Spring has sprung and it’s already beginning to feel like summer in Kentucky. Seriously, it’s supposed to be almost 90° today! Yikes! I miss when it felt like Spring for a longer period of time rather than jumping right into hot, humid weather. Some of these songs don’t necessarily remind me of Spring but these are a few of my favorite songs at the moment. 01. Death Cab for Cutie – “You Are a Tourist“ “And if you feel just like a tourist in the city you were born then it’s time to go. And define your destination there’s so many different places to call home” I am so excited that DCFC is putting out a new album this year! I’ve purchased the iTunes Pass where a new song is released every couple of weeks until the release date. I love when artists do unique things like this for their fans. And I love that they made the video for this song live and in one take. 02. The Traveling Wilburys – “End of the Line“ “Well it’s all right, even if you’re old and gray. Well it’s all right, you still got something to say. Well it’s all right, […]

Summer Mini-Mix (2010)

01. Rooney – “I Can’t Get Enough” [ iTunes ] I tell you yes, you tell me no, I ask you why, you never let me know, you close your eyes, I hold you tight, but it’s no surprise, I’ve got nowhere to go. When I think of Rooney I think of summer, and this is a danceable summer song that everyone needs! **For fans of Phantom Planet, The 88, and OK GO 02. Court Yard Hounds – “The Coast” [ iTunes ] Blue skies, green waters, white birds in the air, brown skin, blue collar, and the wind blowing in my hair. Another great summer song that everyone needs! **For fans of Dixie Chicks and Sheryl Crow 03. The Swell Season – “Young Hearts Run Free” [ *free* download ] Young hearts to yourself be true; never get hung up when love really don’t love you. I recently saw this band live and I was blown away by their performance, needless to say, their albums have been on heavy rotation. This is a cover from the 70’s that they’ve modernized quite a bit. **For fans of The Frames and the movie “Once” 04. Neon Trees – “Animal” [ iTunes […]

Summer Songs : 2009 Edition

Happy 4th of July! To celebrate I wanted to pass along a few of my favorite songs that I’ve been playing a lot this summer. A few new songs as well as an oldie. I hope you enjoy! 01. Alexi Murdoch – Blue Mind “So watch your time turn to sand, let it spill quietly from your hands. Oh, and the time is at hand when all things under the sky. Go free of time, no time is passing you by. Got no time and I am drifting.” After seeing “Away We Go” only a couple weeks ago Irediscovered my love for Alexi Murdoch. “Blue Mind” is one of my favorite songs off of his debut full-length album Time Without Consequence. 02. Phoenix – Lisztomania “So sentimental not sentimental no. Romantic not discussing it, darling I’m down and lonely. When we’re the fortunate only? I’ve been looking for something else. Too late too late too late she’ll be late too late too late. So go slowly discourage distant from other interests. On your favorite weekend ending this love for gentlemen only. That’s where the fortunate only. No I gotta be someone else. These days it comes it comes it comes […]
