Get Your Goosebumps Ready, This Song is THE SONG OF SONGS.

Some of the most precious moments can happen at work. Just now, while researching for an upcoming presentation on Social Media and ROI, my co-worker and I tripped a song fantastic. We were listening to KCRW’s streaming audio, live from Austin…

Rockstar: Hey, talking to national builders and shit? Allow me to get all mushy for a sec.

Me: Ok

Rockstar: Because I’m majorly hungover, and just got done being very Irish for a night and Alex Chilton died, but I’m proud of you! You’re doing cool things, and it’s gonna keep going for you.

Me: Awww. Rockstar, I know your drunk right now, but that means a lot to me. Also, this remix of “Home” is making me wanna cry. This version is amazing. I like the other one too, but this is AWESOME.

Rockstar: Yeah, this is really good! I wonder who did this.  NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WERE REMIXES

Me: OH MY LORD. I want this in my ear space for all timez. If I ever get married  this is my song. I’m super cereal too.

Rockstar: It would be a perfect wedding song –  it’s a very timeless song.

Me: Fuck it’s so good

Rockstar: I’ll tell you a secret. When he says “jade, there’s something I never told you about that night…”  and talks about how he was falling in love with her…when she reacts

I believe that they didn’t rehears it

AND FURTHERMORE

that he really never did tell her that until just then!

…but I’m stupid

me: I just got goosebumps. Im serious. I love her voice.

I wish I was her.

Fuck

I hate myself

I wanna live in this song

Rockstar: Did you google it?! We need it!

Me: I’m looking, I’m looking!

McKay Meets Day

I’ve been waiting to buy Nellie McKay‘s fourth album, Normal as Blueberry Pie – A Tribute to Doris Day for months now. Thanks to some very generous iTunes holiday gifts it is finally playing on loop in my domicile. Here’s a taste for you:

Best Song of the Year

There, I said it.

Get the whole album please – it is so wonderful.

Simple Math: Okkervil River + Anything = Katie Smile

Thanks so much to awesome lady extreme, @MarissaARoss from Tangents & The Times, for sharing this with me today. You, you wine-soaked-vixen, are a true National Treasure.

Know When to Hold ‘Em, Know When to Folds ‘Em

By Ryan Thies – HodgeBlodge 4th Husband

Hey there, CreepstoreI have a friend who once raised his glass and toasted: “If we play our cards right, our second wives haven’t even been born yet.”  We were 22 at the time.  I thought he was kidding, but now, years (and many relationships) later, I’m beginning to suspect that he wasn’t.

Time passes and circumstances evolve and when they do they change the way we view everything that was said and done prior.  This is especially true in politics–think: Congressman Mark Foley ranting against homosexuality now that you know he was sexting his young, male interns- but it’s also true in pop culture–doesn’t Michael Jackson’s unraveling ultimately change the way we all view Thriller?  My point is this:  I will never look at Ben Folds’ album, Songs for Silverman, the same way.

Hoy es Maravilloso

WOOOOOOO!!!!Every now and then an album will come out that I will play on loop for years and years until my friends hate me and my family wants to burn me like a witch. Today, Mariachi El Bronx, a band that I discovered on the Purplish Rain tribute album,  released El Bronx – and it’s incredible. It’s a combination of awesome mariachi music and sweet, indie-type lyrics that offers you a fun and smile-filled soundtrack for the everyday.

It’s available on iTunes for just $7.99 and I think you should do what’s right and invest in some happiness – like now.
