My 5 Music Obsessions of the Day

You can stream the music obsessions each week here on Spotify

1. This is How It Goes :: Aimee Mann

“This is how it goes:
one more failure to connect,
with so many,
how could I object?
And you,
what on earth did you expect?
Well, I can’t tell you, baby,
when this is how it goes.”


2. Road Regrets :: Dan Mangan

“It’s a shame.
It’s a crying shame.
Them’s the breaks,
and ain’t it always the way?
That takes you back to from where it is you came.”


3. All I Ever Wanted :: The Airborne Toxic Event, featuring The Calder Quartet

“I can only say these things to you while you’re sleeping.
I hear the hum from the wires,
the sounds of the morning creeping.
I lie awake and pretend,
you can hear me.”


4. Virgin State of Mind :: K’s Choice

“Now there’s a key where my wonderful mouth ,
used to be.
Dig it up,
throw it at me.
Dig it up,
throw it at me.”


5. Shadowboxer :: Fiona Apple

“Oh, you creep up,
like the clouds,
and you set my soul at ease.
Then you let,
your love abound,
and you bring me,
to my knees.”
