My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day :: 3/6/17 Listen here at Spotify Monday morning came before the sun. A beautiful day, wide smiles and music playing is my "status" today. To-Do lists persist, but there is so much to be grateful for that I hardly mind, and there is music...always music...swirling and swaying through my office. Today’s My Top 5 Music Obsessions of the Day starts The Flaming Lips dreamy-poppy ode to mortality, and love. Then a Nick Drake track that sang through my car during my to-work commute. Next up is "Another Sunny Day", which it is, the sun bright in the sky. Sam Cooke croons and then Nouvelle Vague paints their version of an Echo & The Bunnymen song in that way that they do so well. You can click to listen to each video below, or choose the Spotify link to listen to the My Top 5 Song Obsessions of the Day :: Top Five playlist. I will add each five songs shared to the playlist each day.
My Top Ten Male Singers Top Ten Tuesday The flip side of the last list by request. These lists continue to be near impossible to narrow down, and this was yet another tough one. The list of my favorites would go on, and on, and on - well past "ten", but this is a "Top Ten Tuesday" list, so I painfully cut and put this list together. Some of these slots are subject to change, others will always be where they are. All that said, for today, for right now, this is a list of My Top Ten Male Singers on Top Ten Tuesday.
My Top Ten Love Songs Top Ten Tuesday By request, a Top Ten Tuesday list of My Top Ten Love Songs. This list has changed over the years, and I had to trim off quite a few favorites to limit the list to Ten, and tomorrow, or next month, or next year, if this request came to me again, the list might look different. That said, I know there are a few that have been there for as long as I can remember, and will probably be sticking around for forever. The list tends to veer older, with a few, more recent songs, woven in. The classics though are awfully hard to compete with, especially in regards to songs about love. They transcend cheesiness and contrived sentimentality, gifting something a bit more vulnerable, imperfect, and real. So, here's my list, at least for today, by request...
