GUYS! This weekend I’m going to see The Avett Brothers in Dallas with my main squeeze, who has never listened to their music by the way. I’m so very excited about him seeing them live, even if the temperatures are going to reach 99 degrees, y’all! That means that it’ll feel more than 100 degrees […]
I’ve been wanting to feature Kiss This for WEEKS now, but have been slacking on the Thursday Tracks front (sorry about that, friends!). Anyway, this song is just kickass and it makes me want to dance. *shimmys around in chair* Enjoy!! What song are you obsessing over this week?
Sad sad news, friends. Last night ABC aired the final episode of the tv show Nashville. Now, it wasn’t a planned finale, the show was cancelled by the network, so of course it didn’t end properly. It even had a cliffhanger! UGH! There is a petition going around to revive the show on another network […]
From the moment I first heard this song I instantly thought it would make a great scene in a YA/NA book, or even a flashback in an adult contemporary romance. I JUST WANT IT IN A BOOK, OK! Well when I brought this up on twitter yesterday, the lovely Allison (@bookishfeminist) pointed me toward […]
This week on Dancing with the Stars James Bay performed live and I was reminded once again why I thoroughly enjoy his music. His voice is just magical and emotive and I love it so, so much. Let It Go is a song about breaking up. It’s about giving up on something that’s just not […]
You ever hear a song at the beginning of the week and it just stays with you allllll week? That’s what happened with me and No Good in Goodbye. It’s by no means a new song to me and I’ve always loved it. The Script has some of my all-time favorite songs, so you may […]
This weekend I’ll get to see Mumford & Sons in concert and I’m so VERY excited about it. We saw them about two years ago and it became one of my all-time favorite concerts. This was right before they went on “hiatus” and then came back with a new album that was different from their first […]
It’s been a wet week here in Texas and when I was trying to pick a song for today, this one came on the radio: Water. Ha! I took it as a sign to feature it today. It wasn’t the first time I’d heard it and I’d saved it to feature it at some point, […]
I’ve been wanting to feature this Houston band for a couple of weeks now but I couldn’t decide on a song, so we’re just going to feature the band. My fiancé is friends with the drummer (Nick Zamora) and has been a longtime supporter of this band, even contributing to their kickstarter campaign to raise […]
So one of my favorite genres of music is indie pop and so I turn to the college music radio station for new finds. This band and song is an example of one of those finds. Alvvays (pronounced Always) is from Toronto and are considered indie pop but also jangle pop. Wiki tells us, “Jangle […]
This weekend is Valentine’s Day and to celebrate I’m sharing one of my favorite love songs ever. Of course, I’ve always interpreted Yellow to be a love song, but others have said they believe it’s about death. Ugh, ok creepers. In reality, Yellow is not about anything more than just inspiration striking at the right […]
I really love this guy’s voice. It reminds me Band of Horses, one of my favorite bands. I love the easy, classic melody of this song. And the repetitive lyrics make it easy to remember and sing along to. What do you guys think?
I first heard this song late last year and didn’t think much of it at first listen, but the more I heard it the more I reeeeeally liked it. So if at first you’re not convinced, give it a few more listens. Trust me!
The Freshman is one of those songs from the 90s that you never forget. The lyrics point to a sad story of abortion and suicide. And according to the song’s wiki page it’s partly true, which I never knew. So for funsies, tell me what school grade or how old you were when this song […]
2015 was a GREAT year in music for me. I found so much new music to love and reconnected with old favorites too. I went to million concerts–exaggerating, of course. :) Here’s all the concerts I went to: Feb: Motion City Soundtrack Mar: John Legend Mar: Fall Out Boy July: Third Eye Blind/Dashboard Confessional/Augustana July: […]
