No D-Day: A Lighter Note.
SuperG said it's time time to take a day off from talking about the D Who Shall Not Be Named. And for once, I'm doing what I'm told.
I love music. Even when I worked in an office setting, I was constantly listening to music all day long (and often infecting the ears of my coworkers ... thankfully, dLife had a kickass and very tolerant editorial department who didn't mind Beyonce bursting from the speakers now and again.). Now that I'm working from home, it's a rare day when there's silence in my home. The notes of a song are always streaming out from speakers somewhere, and thankfully, Birdy is a tolerant coworker.
Most of the time, I lean towards music that's moody. Evocative. Stuff that favors minor keys and sort of makes you want to write, or go for a quiet hike, or hug someone close for a really long time. I also like rappy-type stuff (stop laughing at me, Linds), or stuff that fun to run to (if anything makes running fun, that is), or stuff that i if I play it, it makes me feel peppy. (Yes, that whole sentence was hijacked by the 90 year old woman who lives in my head and says words like "peppy," dagnabit. Oh, and like "dagnabit.")
So, for No D Day, I wanted to share some of my favorite tunes that are populating my Spotify playlists. I've mentioned some of these before, but they're all on constant rotation either in my ears or simply in my head:
- Channel Cairo - Elephant Room
- Sufjan Stevens - For the Windows in Paradise, For the Fatherless in Ypsilanti
- The Turtles - Elenore
- Jurassic 5 - Canto De Ossanha
- Thom Yorke - Black Swan
- Colony - Now, Now
- Patrick Watson - Swimming Pools
- Alexander Wolfe - Stuck Under September
- The Tallest Man on Earth - On Every Page
- The Antlers - Kettering
- The Qemists - Lost Weekend
- Skrillex - Bangarang
- Death Grips - Get Got
- Plan B - She Said
What are your earworms? (And please don't say the theme song from Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. That is completely stuck in my head at all times. Ugga-mugga.) I'd love, love to hear any musical recommendations you have that are topping your playlists. I am always on the hunt for something new to play on repeat to the point where Chris knows all the words without meaning to.
(And hooray for No D Day! Thanks George, for organizing this, and for writing another one of my favorite songs, Not By Choice.)
