Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 6/13/17
Tuesday’s Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day This Week brings us a Mix of Glam, BripPop and Indie Rock for your Obsessive Listening Pleasure. These are Turn Up Loud Songs that should get you Moving and Grooving, and Feeling Fine. Tuesday’s are the Best Days to have a random Dance in the middle of the Day, or a Car Concert with the windows rolled down as you Sing-A-Long.
Song 1 is “Mambo Sun”, from Marc Bolan (pictured below) and T.Rex. It comes from T.Rex’s Quintessential Electric Warrior that is a Must Hear Album. Next up is a New Discovery Song, “Sorry People”, from Savoy Motel. Whyte Horses brings us to # 3 with “The Snowfalls”, which leads perfectly into James’ “Ring the Bells”. Last, but certainly not least, is a Song from The Weakerthans’ (pictured below) Album, Reunion Tour. Their Song, “Sun in an Empty Room” is so good it will make you want to Press Play and Listen to the entire Top 5 all over again.
Here’s to a Get Up and Dance Tuesday, and for the Top 5 Songs that will help get you moving. Don’t forget to Turn the Volume Way Up with this Top 5, and don’t worry if you missed a day of Music this week, you can always catch-up throughout the week through those Links above. Each Day’s Songs are added to the Spotify and YouTube Playlists for the Week, put together with Care and Music Obsession, for your Listening, and Music Obsessing, Pleasure.
TOP 5 MUSIC OBSESSIONS OF THE DAY:
1. “Mambo Sun” :: T.Rex
“Beneath the bebop moon,
I want to croon,
Beneath the Mambo Sun,
I got to be the one,
I want to see a bebop moon and a Mambo sun in the sky. Don’t you?
2. “Sorry People” :: Savoy Motel
“Wish it away –
do it again.”
A new discovery. It reminds me of a post-modern meld of Glam and Britpop, with some Funk thrown in, that all-togehter requires a Play Loud Volume. This is an instant-add to my Summer Playlist.
3. “The Snowfalls” :: Whyte Horses
“Just keep on running,
for the morning.”
Another new discovery. Though this has “snow” in the title, the Song also has a Summer Feel to me. There is something so Breezy about it, like the ocean should be out your driver’s side window that you have rolled down as you make your way up PCH.
4. “Ring the Bells” :: James
“Break, break the code.
let the doors swing open.
See through all your walls,
all your floors.
Now you’re in deeper than sleep.”
First Song I heard today. I replayed it three times after.
5. “Sun in an Empty Room” :: The Weakerthans
“Now that the last month’s rent is scheming with the damage deposit.
Take this moment to decide,
if we meant it,
if we tried.
Or felt around for far too much,
from things that accidentally touch.”
A book I just finished reading (review up soon) mentioned The Weakerthans a few times within the story, as well as quoted one of their songs at the start. It reminded me how wonderful this Band is, and how it was time to do a Re-listen. This is the First Track of the Re-listen that I can’t get enough of.
So, there it goes and there we have it – This Week’s Tuesday Make You Want to Dance Mix of Top 5 Music Obsessions, Featuring T.Rex, Savoy Motel, Whyte Horses, James, and The Weakerthans. Hope you all Pressed Play and Turned that Volume Way Up, and Enjoyed Today’s 5 Songs.
