My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 3/1/17

My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 3/1/17
Listen here at Spotify

Wednesdays are a favorite. Today is no exception. The sun is bright in the sky, warm rays sneaking in through my office windows saying good morning to my skin. It has been so gloomy and grey lately, so this is a happy reprieve.

The best time to hit play on My top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day selections.

The first track is a new one from Moby. A collaboration with The Void Pacific Choir and KDA. Then it is a dip into the Brit Pop pool with a big Blur hit. Next up, and pictured above, the lovely Marc Bolan, then its a visit to 1983 with some Fun Boy Three. We end it all, for the day, at least, with The Vaselines “Son of a Gun”.

As always, these songs are best played loudly. So, go on, turn that volume up. It’s Wednesday!

New Music Round-Up :: Week of 9/30

VII :: Blitzen Trapper Three-Sentence Review: Music meant for riding the rails, wandering around, crossing state lines, stopping for a spell to work at a local diner, ducking in to the local bar for a drink and a chat with someone new, falling asleep in a new to you bed, only to get ready to hit the road again. This is a post-modern Kerouac soundtrack to me. The songs stir my gypsy soul that is overflowing with wanderlust, and they make me want to spin around and around, too (infectious, catchy tunes right here). Initial Favorite Track(s): Shine On, Drive … Continue reading New Music Round-Up :: Week of 9/30

Then it fell apart

The Bourne Identity (2002) This movie, oh my, this movie, I have so many feelings attached to this movie. It is bittersweet to me, and not because of anything about the movie itself, but because it ties back to a boy who referred to me as a “Bourne” because what we had together was kept a secret. And sometimes it was smoldering, and sometimes the secret seduction made it exciting, but mostly it left me feeling invisible, unknown, and it all became very lonely. I took the role at first, though. There is ever that temptation to play at something … Continue reading Then it fell apart
