It’s “Friday Junior” or “Friday Eve” or “Just Thursday” again, and its time for another Top 5 Music Obsession set of Songs. Today’s Mix of 5 is an eclectic group of Tunes that all have a bit of mellow psychedelia to them, at least in their core sensibilities, if not genres. I feel wayward and dreamy today, a bit distracted my head in a half-daydream-state with thoughts of the weekend, and a wish for a road trip somewhere. Soon. I think these 5 Songs reflect my mood and mindset or at least seem to soothe it.
Track 1 is by the fabulous J.D. King. I’m looking forward to his next Album, and can’t wait to have the opportunity to see him play live again. Next up is Claudine Longet, who I heard mention of in a Season 1 episode of “Gilmore Girls” (I’m currently on a slow rewatch). When looking up Claudine, and this Beach Boys cover, I realized I recognized her from the 1968 Peter Seller’s Film, The Party. Track 3 is another Spotify Discover Weekly discovery. The Song is “Les Fleur” by Carina Andersson and 4hero. Have I mentioned how much this week’s Discover Playlist rocks? Oh my stars, it so does! Tanya Donelly pairs up with Dylan In The Movies to Cover The Cure’s Quintessential Song, “The Lovecats” for Song 4, and last but not least is Oasis with their big Britpop Hit, “Champagne Supernova”, which seems like the best Song choice to obsess over right before the weekend arrives.
So, are you ready for this Today’s Top 5? What Songs would you add to Today’s list?
