My Weekly Top 10 :: Spooky October Version :: Week of 9/29/14 1. The Psychedelic Furs The song that always comes to mind as soon as October begins is The Ghost in You by The Psychedelic Furs, it is that first song I go to, the first song I play. The band is a forever favorite of mine, a band that my oldest friend first discovered, and it was her copies of their albums that I first borrowed, made cassette tape copies of, and fell hard for. Their music isn’t spooky necessarily, and neither is The Ghost in You as … Continue reading My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/29/14

My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/22/14

1.¬†The Bangles Maybe its the upcoming concert at the Troubadour that one of my oldest and dearest friends and I are going to this Fall, or maybe its adolescent wish that never quite went away of being in an all-female band (if I could of been a Bangle I always wanted to be Michael Steele). This week I’ve been addicted to their first album, All Over the Place, especially the songs¬†Going Down to Liverpool and More Than Meets the Eye. Going Down to Liverpool :: The Bangles with Leonard Nimoy as their grumpy driver! 2. Pride I wrote a review … Continue reading My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/22/14

My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/15/14

1. Journey There’s a radio station here in Los Angeles (The Sound) that does a Triple Play Thursday, and this week one of those three-song blocks was Journey, and I found myself turning it way up past “eleven” and singing-a-long with complete musical abandon. The thing is, I’ve always had a significant sized soft spot for Journey, but then along came Glee, and though yes, I liked the show in the beginning, they did hammer the over-played nails into the Journey-coffin with their endless version of Don’t Stop Believin’, that seemed to play all the time. But, you see, Glee … Continue reading My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/15/14

My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/8/14

1. Ryan Adams My number one on this week’s Top Five New Releases was the latest release from Ryan Adams, self-titled and overflowing with songs just waiting to be slipped into a playlist. I’m obsessing over the song Kim currently (which subsequently made it on to this week’s Saturday Playlist). Ryan’s playing in Santa Barbara soon, the closest to Los Angeles show on the roster (so far), and I’m quite tempted to make it a road trip and overnight stay in order to see him play live again. See my review of Ryan Adams self-titled here. Kim (live on the … Continue reading My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 9/8/14

My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 4/21

1. James “Bucky” Barnes It has been a long while since I was swept up into a fictional obsession. Perhaps it was time for one again, maybe it is a reflection on what is going on in me, change and stresses and a near constant state of movement that has made me ripe for a dose of escapism. Or, well, it could just very well be a character that got under my skin in a way I’m not ready to shake off yet. Bucky caught me off-guard and hooked me in, deep, drawing me in, and I am okay with … Continue reading My Weekly Top 10 :: Week of 4/21

My Weekly Top Ten :: The Week of October 7

To give credit where credit is due, I stole this idea from Entertainment Weekly, my weekly fix in magazine form. I always read their picks for the week’s Top Ten first, so I thought why not put together my own. Though it will not be filled with only things that are “new this week”, it will have some of that among the list, I’m sure. Overall though, it will be a mixed bag of pop culture that is making me happy/obsessed/emotionally moved each week. Please share in the comments anything and everything that would make up your own Top 10 … Continue reading My Weekly Top Ten :: The Week of October 7
