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 :)
So guys, my best friend and music soul sister has recently lost her ENTIRE MUSIC LIBRARY. So, of course, she asked the music fairy (that would be me…) to send her some kickass tunes. So for the past few days I’ve been combing my itunes library and I’ve rediscovered some fabulous songs. I went a bit over board with operation help-me-i-have-no-music.. I sent upwards of 500 songs J but that’s perfect really, because now I get to share some favorites with you. I think we all have songs like this – ones that we love, but for some reason or another, they seem to fall off our radar. Or maybe we still remember them, but they get eclipsed by other songs. At any rate, I’ve picked some tunes for you guys this week
1. Temper Trap – Fader
Favorite Line: Talk don’t change a thing…
It's kind of my jam, folks.
2. Walk the Moon – Anna Sun
Favorite Line: we got no money, but we got heart. We're gonna rattle this ghost town
This song is pure summer. P.S. You’ve GOT TO watch their acoustic version of this – they completely kill it. Or as a certain AI judge could say they knock it out the park.
3. Emiliana Torrini - Hold Heart
Favorite Line: No lips, don’t make a sound – don’t let him hear the break in your voice…
4. Snow Patrol – Set Down Your Glass
Favorite Line: You say you’ll sew me good as new and I know you will
I am going to walk down the aisle to this. True story.
5. Josh Ritter –Golden Age of Radio
Favorite Line: I swear that we’re the last living souls in a populated ghost town.
I couldn’t find the studio version on youtube, but this live one is pretty fabulous. You should check out the studio one though, it just swells. You know what I mean?
6. Andrew Belle (feat. Erin McCarley) – In my Veins
Favorite Line: Nobody is perfect, oh but everyone’s to blame.
I have a slight obsession with Andrew Belle, but I especially love his duet work. And In My Veins is my favorite track of his – it’s just so raw and haunting.
7. Laura Marling - Night Terror
Favorite Line: And whisper "if they want you, Oh they're gonna have to fight me" Oh fight me
For the longest time my favorite song by Marling was New Romantic. I mean, homegirl name drops Ryan Adams. Awesome? yes. But there is something so lovely about Night Terror... in a haunting way that is.
