A Song That…

Lists are fun. Compiling them, reading them, thinking about them… I enjoy that. When I stumbled upon this questionnaire somewhere in the social meadiaverse I saved it thinking that it would be a good list to share with my readers; and possible fill out myself.

It is rather long and some of the questions really sent me thinking. Which I think is a good thing. Because of all the thought I put into filling this out it took me a sizable amount of time to complete. But I think it was worth it.

I now share with you my ‘Songs That…’list. Let me know what you think and please feel free to fill this out yourself and post it in the comments. (I will include, in the comments section, a clean list for you to copy for yourselves) I would love to hear your musical choices!

Shuffle 6: (Not So) Motivational Mix

 

#MusicMonday

#MusicMonday

It’s Monday and I can’t get motivated to do anything today. Might be the clouds looming in the sky. It might be the lack of caffeine.  No matter what it is I need a boost and I need it fast. I hope a quick shuffle through my music collection is just what the Doctor ordered. If not I will have to find another crazy man in a blue box to take advice from.

The Swell Season

If you aren’t familiar with this folk rock awesomness you should be. The Irishman with the powerful voice, Glen Hansard, and the piano playing Czech with the angelic voice, Markéta Irglová, form this award winning duo. The have a wonderful sound and they are one of my all-time favorites. The Swell Season have several wonderful songs (Into The Mystic, Low Rising, Lies, Feeling the Pull, When Your Minds Made Up… to name a few) but their most famous song by far is ‘Falling Slowly’.

Shuffle 5: Wish I Was Outside Mix

 

#MusicMonday

#MusicMonday

The sun is shining (for once) the birds are singing and I am stuck inside. Go figure on the first nice day in at least a week I have a bajillion things to do to get ready to go away for the next few days; and none of them include outside time! Ah well, such is life. To help me through the indoor malaise I loaded up my player and hit shuffle. Here are the first five for ya!

Zac Brown Band

These guys have been putting out consistently good music for the last, what is it now, 5 years… Always topping the charts, playing sold out venues, winning awards and having a good time doing it. I love these guys. They’re group of guys who I wouldn’t mind hanging out with on a Saturday night around a bonfire somewhere. A few drinks, a few laughs, someone pulls out an acoustic guitar and we all join in singing some favorites. That would be a damn fine time.

Maybe someday I will get to do that, but for now I will go there in my mind as I listen to a few of my favorite ZBB songs. Sit back and enjoy them with me! (more…)

The Tony’s

 

NPH on The 67th Annual Tony Awards

NPH on The 67th Annual Tony Awards

There isn’t much to say beyond: Neil Patrick Harris is unbelievable. UN-FREAKIN-BELIVABLE… Wow… Hey Academy Awards… Yeah you! Consider the 4 times NPH has hosted the Tony’s as the perfect audition tapes. Seriously. Make this happen.

The Lonely Island has a new album coming out next week, and in promotion for said album they went on Jimmy Kimmel Live with a little help from Alanis. I love the Lonely Island guys. They are brilliant and this new song is great. Here is that performance from JKL. Please enjoy!!

 

 

 

 

 

Metallica: A Twofer

#MusicMonday

#MusicMonday

It is ‘Music Monday’ but this one is a little bit different. I stumbled upon a trailer for an interesting film. It is a concert documentary with a through storyline about Metallica’s roadie Trip who gets sent on an important mission. Being an errand for Metallica, nothing is simple and it turns out to be a big adventure. (more…)

Irony Abounds In My Head

#MusicMonday

Let me explain. No, that will take too long. Let me sum up. It has been raining for the last couple days and it doesn’t look to clear up anytime soon. Yet I have had this song stuck in my head all weekend. Must be a case of mind over matter. Whatever it is, this is just a catchy song that always puts a smile on my face!

And so does the image I have included.

Happy Monday everyone!!!

Inside Llewyn Davis

 

I can’t say it much better than the official production description:

Oscar Isaac in 'Inside Llewyn Davis'

Oscar Isaac in ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’

“’Inside Llewyn Davis’ follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles; some of them of his own making.”

If you are a fan of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen you won’t miss this one. I know I love the Coen’s vast array of movies and am looking forward to see how Justin Timberlake’s beard plays in this one. The beard surfaces in December of this year.
