Top Five Tuesday :: Thought I’d be out of here by now

Top Five Tuesday :: Concrete Blonde After listening and reliving the album Free, and all it rehashed memories, I found myself on quite a Concrete Blonde kick. There are so many songs I love, each of them cocked and loaded with a myriad of memories. Johnette's is one of those moments that feels like an … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: Thought I’d be out of here by now

Top Five Tuesday :: Farewell my black balloon

Top Five Tuesday :: The Kills The Kills are one of those artists that you truly and madly and deeply need to see play live. As much as I love their albums, and I do so love their albums, seeing them live is something else completely. There is energy, there is chemistry, there is heat … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: Farewell my black balloon

Top Five Tuesday :: Nothing can touch us, my love

Top Five Tuesday :: The National It was a week spent at an airport hotel, stolen moments when no one really knew we were there, together. Parts of it seem like a dream to me now, and other moments as real and tangible as yesterday's stop at the gas station, or today's lukewarm coffee left … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: Nothing can touch us, my love

Top Five Tuesday :: It wears me out

Top Five Tuesday :: Radiohead Oh Radiohead, what a tumultuous time we have had in the musical stratosphere of love and hate, and all those songs that rise and fall in-between. No, its true, I never have truly hated you, but I have had weeks and months, and quite possibly years, of thinking that you were … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: It wears me out

Top Five Tuesday :: But life’s no story book

Top Five Tuesday :: Bright Eyes Although I could make a case for having this just be my top five songs from Conor Oberst, I decided today that I wanted to narrow the choices to his music under the guise of Bright Eyes. This did not make my song selection any easier to accomplish, I … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: But life’s no story book

Top Five Tuesday :: So give me coffee and TV

Top Five Tuesday :: Blur The recent discovery of the Channel E4 TV program My Mad Fat Diary has me longing for, and spinning copious amounts of 90's music. The songs themselves are loaded with memories from my life, which comes at its own cost, in fair trade of good and bad. But I am … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: So give me coffee and TV

Top Five Tuesday :: Oh these sour times

Top Five Tuesday :: Portishead Truly some of the most sensual, seductive and downright sexy music has come from the ethereal avant garde trip hop sounds of Portishead. For me, it was Portishead, followed shortly after by Massive Attack, that had me falling hard for trip hop, and how could I not? It felt like … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: Oh these sour times

Top five Tuesday :: Wondering if she’d changed at all

Top Five Tuesday :: Bob Dylan Inspired by a post I read this morning written by a wonderful fellow blogger (see post here) where he muses on the Bob Dylan impact, and the ever bandied he/she is "the next Bob Dylan" comparisons. I started thinking about Bob Dylan, and starting spinning some of his music … Continue reading Top five Tuesday :: Wondering if she’d changed at all

Top Five Tuesday :: I’m not a miracle, and you’re not a saint

Top Five Tuesday :: Damien Rice I am not sure where I first heard Damien Rice's music, though I half expect it was from a television show, as it seemed there was a time where any melancholic moment, or dramatic scene of heartbreak or longing, was accented by a Damien Rice number in the background. … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: I’m not a miracle, and you’re not a saint

Top Five Tuesday :: They’re lighting my way tonight

Top Five Tuesday :: Depeche Mode Depeche Mode is one of the bands that is immediately wrapped up in memories of my adolescence, of stacks of vinyl albums and cassettes tossing around in my backpack, mix tapes made with care, and falling in unrequited love with that boy I could never have. It is reminiscent … Continue reading Top Five Tuesday :: They’re lighting my way tonight
