TOP 5 MUSIC OBSESSIONS OF THE DAY:
1. “Kismet Kill” by Haley Bonar
“I was impossible when I was beautiful,
cartoon deaths just don’t seem so funny.”
Haley Bonar is a new discovery at Lyriquediscorde.com Found via Spotify’s Weekly Discover Playlist, this one has been put on Repeat over the last two days – and we don’t see it moving from there anytime soon.
We look forward to digging into the other Tracks on her Album, Impossible Dream, along with other releases of hers.
2. “Sara” by Fleetwood Mac
“Wait a minute, baby.
Stay with me awhile.
Said you’d give me light,
but you never told me about the fire.”
Written by Singer-Songwriter Stevie Nicks for Fleetwood Mac, “Sara” was released as a Single off of the 1979 Double LP, Tusk. The Song peaked at # 7 in the US for 3 weeks, # 37 in the UK for 2 weeks, # 11 in Australia, and # 12 in Canada.
3. “Werewolf” by Fiona Apple
“Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key.”
Fiona was quoted as saying this about “Werewolf”:
“I wrote that song while staying at my mother’s apartment up in Harlem. Whenever there’s a TV, I put on Turner Classic Movies—I always have it on, while I sleep, whatever. I was recording myself doing the song for the first time, and a battle broke out in the movie that was playing. People were shooting and screaming. I liked it, but I couldn’t use it from the movie, so I spent literally the next year trying to recreate that sound. I went to San Francisco for Halloween and I was hanging out in trollies recording people screaming. I would walk past a bunch of drunk people and be like: “Hey, scream!” But it would always sound wrong and stupid. But on the first morning, we were planning to record, I had just gotten out of the shower and I heard all these kids screaming– there’s an elementary school across from my house in L.A. I was like, “Oh shit, that’s it.” I threw on whatever was right there– which I didn’t realize at the time was a pair of pants that I was going to throw away because the ass was split– and I ran out, half-clothed, carrying my recording thing. I was standing there looking like a crazy person, watching these kids. They were jumping with balloons between their legs, trying to make them pop. In the actual song, we had to take out all the balloon pops because they sounded like gunshots. But it was so perfect.”
4. “Love Is Everywhere I Go” by Sam Phillips
“Going down this road again,
I finally know,
there is no end to the good.”
Sam Phillips Voice always reminds me of Gilmore Girls.
This one fits perfectly right now with me, and my life, and how I feel.
5. “Essence” by Lucinda Williams
“I am waiting here for more.
I am waiting by your door.
I am waiting on your back steps.
I am waiting in my car.
I am waiting at this bar.
I am waiting for your essence.”
This Song is so Sexy and Sensual.
Definitely our Favorite of the 5 Today.
