Back to the start Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day for another Monday. We all may be moving a bit slower today. The wake-up call alarms clanging before we were ready to open our eyes and start another week. Besides coffee, music is always my go-to pick-me-up get-me-through-a-Monday cure. Hopefully, this mix of Top 5 songs will help cure you of any “Case of the Mondays” you may have contracted. Mondays really can be a fresh start day, a do something different day, a first-step-to-something you want kind of day. Maybe Monday can get a new reputation if the music is turned up loud enough. What do you think?
Song 1 is a new discovery band and song for me, courtesy of Spotify’s Discovery playlist. This Is The Kit’s song “Moonshine Freeze” got me today, and I can’t stop listening to it. Leave it to Rough Trade Records to have another band I dig. “Fix You Up” by Tegan and Sara is next. It has been awhile since I listened to T and S. Too long, I think. My binge watch of “Grey’s Anatomy” has me remembering how much I enjoy their harmonies and song-sounds. The Kooks alternate version to “Naive” is up next, which lends itself perfectly to the first song I heard this morning – The Jam’s “Tonight at Noon”. Every day is a good day for Paul Weller’s voice, it doesn’t have to be Weller Wednesday. Rounding up today’s Top 5 is “Far Gone and Out” from The Jesus And Mary Chain. This one is the song of the 5 that I can’t stop hitting repeat on. Those opening drums are everything!
