Happy Monday! Er… Is there such a thing as a happy Monday? I don’t know about you, but I was in some serious denial when my alarm clock went off this morning.
I was going to post today about my daughter’s first lesson in learning about death but I thought that might be kind of a morbid and heavy way to start off the week. So instead, I decided to share some of my current music obsessions with you. It’s been a while since I posted some of my current favorite songs. These are in no particular order.
The Civil Wars, “Kingdom Come”
I’ve posted about The Civil Wars before and how much I love them. I think I’ve also posted about how much I love The Hunger Games so naturally, when I heard the Civil Wars did a song for the soundtrack I was really excited. I finally got around to downloading this song, Kingdom Come, this weekend and have pretty much been listening to it nonstop. I still can’t get over the blend of these two singers’ voices. They give me chills. This is such a powerful song and it really fits The Hunger Games perfectly.
Mumford & Sons, “White Blank Page”
This is one of those bands that I’m like, why the hell wasn’t I paying attention to these guys earlier? I’d heard “Little Lion Man” (which, by the way, Nellie loves and calls the “Lion Song”. It’s a tad inappropriate because it has an F-Bomb but whatevs, it’s an amazing song) but didn’t pay Mumford & Sons much attention. Because I’m an idiot. This song is so full of emotion, strength, drama, harmony.. It’s just beautiful.
Gotye “Somebody That I Used to Know”
Yeah, yeah, I know. I love this song – along with a bajillion other people. I haven’t gotten tired of it yet. In fact, I blast it from my car with my windows down while driving around downtown to pick up my daughter from daycare because that’s what cool people do, right? I’m trying to prove to all the hip kids out there that I’m still with it and down with the current jams while I cruise around in my SUV picking up my kid. Word up.
Speaking of “Somebody That I Used to Know”, please check out this amazing cover by Walk Off the Earth. I might actually like it better than the original.
There you have it. A list of just a few of my current music obsessions. I hope you enjoyed!
What songs are you into right now? Is there something burning up your iPod that I should be listening to?
