Listen to This: You Say

Every time Dori Freeman’s “You Say” comes on, I feel like my mind floats away to somewhere else. This song has a feeling to it that makes me want to sink into the covers on a rainy Sunday morning, or pour a hot cup of coffee and spend hours pounding away on the typewriter. There’s something bluesy and achy about it, where it makes you have that feeling in the pit of your stomach like something is missing from you – even if you didn’t feel that before the first chord. It’s Friday of a “short week” when Tuesday is a Monday, and this is one of those songs that quiets my mind a little in the chaos. If you haven’t heard it yet, enjoy below.

“Darling I can’t stop thinking of you
Like a dog in the hot night
I’m howling for you
And I know
It’ll leave me blue
But I’m still
In love with you”

Listen, turn it up tuesday

Turn It Up Tuesday, Listen to This: “Sweater Weather”

The Neighbourhood’s catchy little song “Sweater Weather” isn’t a very obscure one as the radio tends to play it quite frequently here, but in case this lovely tune hasn’t made its way to your ears yet I wanted to share! I know it’s a little bit…”intense” might be the word for it? But there’s is just something completely alluring about this song to me. I can’t seem to get enough, and I’ve yet to find it possible to be over-played.  The song is featured on their album “I Love You” which I also highly recommend checking out.

Maybe it’s because it’s winter, maybe it’s because the chorus is endearing and makes me think of youthfulness, but this is a great song.

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

Friday Fun, Listen to This: “Let’s Go”

It’s Friday. FINALLY. That is not an exaggeration. These days have trickled by, and I am trying to remind myself that each one, is new – with it’s own blank canvas before it. Some days that’s a larger task than others. In general, we could all use a fun song this Friday, right? So! What’s more fun than Matt & Kim? That’s right – not much. I’ve got “Let’s Go” for you, today. This isn’t very obscure, it’s not like you might not have ever heard it, but whether it’s new or old to you, give it a listen today.Plus, hello this video is obviously nothing less than awesome in its weird awkward fabulousness. I can’t wait to walk out into the arms of the weekend, myself. I hope you enjoy yours!

 

 

 

“Shouting out of my windows
Roll down
Cause I don’t care anymore
Said I don’t care
Let’s go

Say what you wanna say
Make it mean everything
Oh, say what you wanna say
Make it mean everything”

Watch This: Adam Levine on Jimmy Kimmel Live

Hello, readers! I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends as much as I did. I spent mine in the panhandle at Mexico Beach with the fam and some friends, and it was a great couple of days. The weather was gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the company was top-notch. (Thankfully, I can say that about the last several weekends in my life this year.) Friday night I can’t remember what we were doing in the living room, the guys were playing Spades and I was probably just sitting on the couch rambling and drinking wine after we re-watched the finale of The Office. Then I saw that I had missed Adam Levine on Jimmy Kimmel and I knew I’d have to look it up later. Saturday night I saw they’d posted videos on their YouTube page, so my mom and I watched them. It’s definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re having a slow day, or need a pick-me-up. I laughed uncontrollably and then yesterday morning I woke up and laughed thinking about it again. We made my dad watch them, and then my bro and the rest of the guys as well because the segment is just dry and hilarious. So, if you missed it or if you saw it already and think it’s as funny as I did and want to watch again – here you go!

Listen to This: “How It Ended”

I know, I’ve lavished praise on FSU’s student run radio station v89 before. They never cease to amaze me with the great music they share. Many mornings on my drive to work as I listen to the “Caffeine A-Go-Go” show I hear some great tunes I’m not familiar with. Yesterday was one of those mornings. For some reason I almost changed the station before they played “How It Ended” by The Drums, but I am so glad I didn’t. This song is featured on their sophomore album Portamento released in 2011. Upon a little Wikipedia “research,” I discovered this band was in Kissimmee, Florida before they moved to Brooklyn! Kissimmee was less than an hour and a half away from my home town! Unfortunately, I missed out on getting to know this band before their move. I’ll keep it short and sweet today and just say Happy Friday! Do yourself a favor and give this song a listen.

I love days when I can share a band’s official video with you, and today is one of those days! Check out “How It Ended” :
