Celebration (Kool and the Gang)

Time for a little 1970s nostalgia — even though this song was actually released in 1980, I still associate it with the ’70s. I really needed to hear this! Advertisements

This is the kind of Christmas music I like.

  I don’t want to hear Jingle Bell Rock ,  The Little Drummer Boy, Jingle Bells, Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman, or Santa Baby (puke!).   If I hear these kinds of songs on the … Continue reading

Ride (Twenty One Pilots)

I heard this song several times today during my almost 700 mile ride home, and can’t get it out of my mind.  It’s incredibly addictive and I think it’s a perfect driving song too. I think this is one of … Continue reading

“Outside” (Staind)

I’ve been thinking about this song a lot today and have been listening to it tonight. I like the melancholy but introspective mood it evokes in me. I might be wrong, but I feel like the lyrics are about a … Continue reading

Monday Melody: Mr. Brightside (The Killers)

Another great post-1990s pop-rock tune, from 2004.   This is just a great song.   The lead singer is very easy on the eyes, too.

Song for a beautiful Sunday!

Make You Better (The Decemberists)

“Make You Better” by the Decemberists is a new song but sounds like a jangle-pop song from the early ’90s (think REM, They Might Be Giants, Gin Blossoms, etc.)    I can’t stop listening to it.  The harmonies are just beautiful. … Continue reading

Monday Melody: Shine (Collective Soul)

“Shine” is one of those ’90s songs that sounds positively dated by today’s standards, but this is not a bad thing, not at all.    The feel of the song, technically classified as post-grunge (even though it came out in … Continue reading
