My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 4/20/17
Hello Thursday’s Best Music. Hello Thursday’s Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day. Hello Thursday’s Friday Eve Energy that is heightened, and sweetened, by a Great Music 5 Song Soundtrack. I’d love to know what is Musically filling your Thursday, what Songs you are Soundtracking your Thursday with.
Today’s Top 5 starts off with one of my Favorite Paul Weller Tracks. This Week was unfortunately Weller Wednesday without due to a fortunate road trip I was on, so I thought I’d spin some Weller today to make up for it. Not to worry though, Weller Wednesday will return next week. Tune 2 in this Top 5 Music Obsessions Mix is New Order’s “Your Silent Face”. This Song was one of the highlights of the New Order show i was at this past Tuesday night. Peter Murphy brings in Number 3 with the Opening Track from his Solo Album, Love Hysteria. What Great Album, and what a Great Song. Song 4 comes from The Teardrop Explodes, which is followed by Neko Case’s “Hold On, Hold On”, one of my Favorites of hers. Neko takes us to the end, until tomorrow’s Top 5, that is.

Each Month will have its own ever-expanding Playlist, so if you missed a day, or a past week, its all there for your audio perusal.
My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day:
1. “Wake Up the Nation” :: Paul Weller
“Get your face off the Facebook,
and turn off your phone,
the death of the post box,
no one is home.“
One of my Favorite Paul Weller Solo Songs partially because of those Lyrics above. Though I am on Facebook, there is a part of me that loathes it, and the entire Social Media obsessed society we live in. I have been trying to make a concerted effort to limit my time on Social Media, and my phone, and increase my time out in the world, and face-to-face with people. I try to find lots of time when my face is off the Facebook.
2. “Your Silent Face” :: New Order
“No hearing or breathing,
One of my Favorite moments at the New Order show this past Tuesday was this Song, and the accompanying Video/Mini Film that played on the screen behind them during it. I do not think I ever realized just how Beautiful this song is until that moment. Now, it may have garnered a spot in My Top 5 Favorite New Order Songs list.
3. “All Night Long” :: Peter Murphy
“Oh your see-saw smile,
lasts me all night long.
Like a siren’s curl,
when the night is long.”
This is such a Gorgeous Song, isn’t it? Also, I love the Lyric “see-saw smile”. I love references to smiles, especially with creative, and specific, descriptions.
4. “Second Hand” :: The Teardrop Explodes
“I’m scratching my back while you’re scratching the surface.”
The Teardrop Explodes is a Band I am recently rediscovering. I’m not sure I dove deep enough back when they were first around. There is a lot to dig through, which makes me happy. I love discovering, and re-discovering, Music.
5. “Hold On, Hold On” :: Neko Case
“In the end I was the mean girl,
or somebody’s in-between girl.
Now it’s the devil I love,
and that’s as funny as real love.”
I Love those Lyrics above – especially “Not it’s the devil I love, and that’s as funny as real love.” Neko is another Artist that I am digging deeper into lately, and digging it a lot, so far.
So, that’s Thursday’s My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day. What did you think of them? Any Favorites from the 5?
