Monday’s Top 5 Music Obsessions is made up of an eclectic mix of old and new, familiar and introductory, and ready-to-play Songs that all have a bit of an edge. We need all the edge we can get on a Monday, don’t you think? At least I know I do – especially since this Monday marks the start of a new job for me.
So, here’s what’s we have for Today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions…
The Killers, starting us off with a “wonderful” track from their newly released album, Wonderful Wonderful. Del Shannon is up next, taking us back to the past with his timeless hit, “Runaway”, a song that was featured in the 1973 film, American Graffiti. Nancy Sinatra gives us a musical gun to carry for track 3, with my favorite song of hers, “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)”. “Needles and Pins” a Searchers cover by the Ramones takes us to Song 4., and then it all ends (or begins) with the hauntingly gorgeous, and edgy, “What Kind of Man“, from the vocally haunting, gorgeous and edgy, Florence (Welch) And The Machine.
Are you ready to Press Play and start your Monday off with an edge and a bang?
Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day – 8/28/17
1. “Wonderful, Wonderful” by The Killers
“Don’t you listen to the never.
Keep praying for rain.
Dancing for rain little girl,
by the drain.
2. “Runaway” by Del Shannon
“I’m a-walkin‘ in the rain,
tears are fallin’ and I feel the pain,
wishin’ you were here by me,
to end this misery.”
3. “Bang Band (My Baby Shot Me Down)” by Nancy Sinatra
“Seasons came and changed the time.
When I grew up,
I called him mine,
He would always laugh and say.
‘Remember when we used to play?'”
4. “Needles and Pins” by Ramones
“I saw her today,
I saw her face,
it was the face I loved,
and I knew I had to run away.”
5. “What Kind of Man” by Florence And The Machine
“And with one kiss,
you inspired a fire of devotion,
that lasts for twenty years.
What kind of man loves like this?”
