Friday has arrived. If you listen closely you can hear the cheers and fanfare across the highways and hills. Or maybe that’s just me I hear. I’m beyond ready for Friday, and the weekend, to be here. I was up late last night
Listening Obsessing over the new Track from Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson. I couldn’t wait for morning to write something up about it. New Music Fridays make Friday even more magical, don’t you think? I’ll be taking Today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions along with me into the weekend. What Music will you be taking with you?
If you’d like to take this Week’s collection of Music Obsession Songs you can follow and stream the Music Obsession Playlists at Spotify and YouTube. I’m sure I say this every week, but this Week’s Top 5’s are something really special.
The First Track of Today’s Top 5 Music Obsessions is the previously unreleased Recording of Prince Singing “Nothing Compares 2 U”, the Hit Song that was Recorded and Released by Sinéad O’Connor in 1990. Though I will always love the raw, heartbreaking vulnerability of Sinéad’s Version, this is a treat to hear. Prince’s rendition of his Song has a Jazz meets R&B Sound to it that is completely Prince. I can almost see him performing this On-Stage when I listen. I’d love to hear/read what you think about it.
Next up is the Cinematic “Bad Dreams”, the newly Released Single from Pete Yorn and Scarlett Johansson. This is a first taste of the EP that will be out on June 1st. The EP will include this Track, and others by the reunited duo, including a reworking of “Tomorrow”, which was previously on Pete’s Arrangingtime Album.
Song 3 is Yo La Tengo’s Cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love”. This seemed like the perfect Friday Song to Obsess over. It is Friday, after all, and I am very much in love.
Sufjan Stevens “The Dress Looks Nice On You”, one of my Favorite Sufjan Songs, is Track 4, followed perfectly by White Lies Song, “Take It Out On Me”.
