I know it hasn’t been as long as usual in between playlist posts, but I’ve been listening to a lot of good stuff lately, and I’m going to a lot of theater/movies this week and didn’t want the whole blog to be reviews. So here, have some songs:
We Own the Night – fun. covering Lady Antebellum
One of my favorite pop bands covering one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite country bands – what’s not to love?
Try Again – Big Star
When I was at the Music Box last week I saw a trailer for a documentary about Big Star. I can’t wait to see it, and I’m grateful for the excuse to listen to #1 Album.
Boys Round Here – Blake Shelton
Now, before you judge me, let me say that I am fully aware that this song is stupid. Really stupid, and probably actually bad, but I really enjoy the little joke about the Dougie & Kentucky. That’s the whole reason this song is on here.
Love Comes to Everyone – George Harrison
Sometimes I like to think of myself as a hippie. When I do, I listen to a lot of George Harrison.
Everything Has Changed – Taylor Swift feat. Ed Sheeran
The song is fine, but I’m in love with this video, especially the adorable hipster children doing yoga.
I’m A Keeper – The Band Perry
This song is my new mantra. Seriously. I cannot stop listening to it. (I especially love this live version, Kimberly Perry just has so much sass.)
Stepsister’s Lament – from the 1997 TV version
Because I’ve had this song in my head for reasons I can’t really figure out. And because I’m obsessed with the strange “color-blind” casting of this movie. I’m all for diversity, but there’s no world where Bernadette Peters gave birth to both of these daughters…
Right as Rain – Adele
This is my cleaning music, or as it’s been hot out this is my piling things up to clean them up later music.
Lookin’ For a Good Time – Lady Antebellum
Their ballads are great and everything, but I love when Lady A has fun.
Chelsea Dagger – played the CSO
Because it’s a damn good day to be a Chicagoan.
