I don’t think this song needs much intro. It’s happy and fun and bouncy. Listen

“Wild” by Royal Teeth

winters advancing

Since I’ve used lyrics from this song at least twice, I thought I’d post a bonus Sunday blog with this song. I’ve got another song lined up for Music Monday already. (Doesn’t hurt that I totally slacked off on Wednesday and Thursday.) Enjoy! I think it’s a really pretty upbeat song.

“Stay Young, Go Dancing” by Death Cab for Cutie

Have no fear

Bear, typically, turned me onto this song. It was featured in the movie Drive, which I hated. But this song is pretty spectacular. Since I’m still on a car theme (tomorrow’s post is going to recount the shitty car related stuff that happened last week), I figured it was appropriate. I’m in a day long meeting today, so please, enjoy it for me.

In honor of Valentine’s Day

I have some songs for you. They defined my idea of romantic love when I was a little girl. I was sharing songs with Linda and forcing her to listen to the lyrics the other day and she requested that I post them for Valentine’s Day. Because she’s my girl, here we go.

The intro to that song makes me happy EVERY TIME I HEAR IT. I’m sad I couldn’t find a live version I liked, but I’m very partial to the album version apparently.

This is my second favorite “love song”. Where Linda and I grew up, there was (is?) a radio station called Sunny 99.1. They played “love songs”. Both of our mothers listened to that station. “My heart cried out for you.” The lyrics in this song slay me every time. “You are my lover, you’re my best friend. You’re in my soul.”

Then we kinda have to jump down to one of my lesser favorite songs because songs like “Always a Woman” or “Reason to Believe” are kinda about the harder sides of love. Where you keep loving while someone hurts you.

I always think of this song as the crystal staircase song for some reason and then have a bitch of a time trying to find it again. So I’m actually kind of happy that I’m posting it. The next time I have a craving to hear this song, it’ll be here.

“And no matter how old we get, It’s okay as long as I got you baby” This song I don’t remember ever playing on Sunny, but it’s still a beautiful song about how sometimes love makes it all bearable.
