Friday is here! The second one of the New Year! I think we need 5 Songs to Celebrate! So, here we go with Today’s Friday Edition of My Top 5 Music Obsessions. Today is a bit themed, with all of these Songs hitting that Trip-Hop/Ambient/Electronic genre, which just feels so right today. The sun is out again in Los Angeles, the rains are put away for a little bit, and the city feels buzzing with an almost-weekend energy. I’m ready for the weekend, for a bit of relaxation, for the ocean and kisses, long mornings, and late nights, book pages, cups of coffee, and cooking some enchiladas from scratch. Today’s 5 Songs feels like the perfect way to get ready.
Track One is one of my all-time favorite Songs from one of my all-time favorite Albums, “Sexy Boy” from Air’s album, Moon Safari. Don’t you just love everything about this Song? Next up is “Hayling”, from FC Kahuna, a Song that I discovered, and obsessed over then, and still love, and obsess over, now. Martina Topley-Bird is there for Song three, a Singer I was thinking about today when contemplating what to feature for Female Friday (stay tuned). A new discovery for me today, “Noche Sueños” by Mala and Danay Suárez, follows and is just so breathtakingly beautiful. Play it a few times and you will see what I mean. Last, but never least, is LCD Soundsystem. The energy switches a little at the end, lifting and turning up, as Friday does as it unfolds itself.
Are you ready for this Friday’s Top 5? What Songs would you add to Today’s list?
