Tune In Tuesday {2}

Tune in Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by Ginger at GReads. It's a fun way to share your favorite music with other bloggers and hopefully introduce them to so truly kickin' tunes :)

This week I had a really difficult time choosing, so I am just going to lay a bunch of different tracks on you. Last week I chose a song by an all male band so this time it's all about the ladies. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

First up we have "Young Girl" by Dawn Landes from her album, Sweetheart Rodeo. I LOVE this song. I believe I got it from a Paste Sampler (an incredibly awesome music magazine!), but I don't really remember. I've had it for a while and I still am in love with it. I get very bouncy when I listen to it - I just can't sit still.

 Next we've got the ever fabulous Grace Potter & The Nocturnals. I really, really wanted to use Grace's song "That Phone". But alas, there is not a good quality youtube video to be found. So, I am going with "Paris (Oh La La)" The only reason I didn't want to use this one is because I figured you guys would have already heard it. But whatever, it's still a kick ass song.

Last but not least, we have Sara Jackson Holman with "Cellophane". I found Sara via emusic a while back and quickly downloaded her entire album. I LOVE this girl If you are a fan of artists like Adele, Duffy or Amy Winehouse, I'd check Sara out.

 Oh, what the heck. How about one more? Let's talk about She & Him for a minute.Yes, M. Ward is technically in the band (hence the him), but he never says anything, so I basically think of them as Zooey and her plus 1. Well, I take that back, he does have lines in their cover of "Lotta Love", but that's one song out of what... 20? Anyways, I love every one of there songs, but this one is just so adorable. And the video makes me smile. So here you go. Spread that sunshine!

So what do you think? Do you like my selections this week? Have you heard them before?

Great picks! I'd only heard of She & Him and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals before and I really liked the others. I'll have to go look up more of their work :-D
