In between working all day, seeing X-Men 3 at midnight last night (friggin’ sweet), and a trip to the ER at 3 AM. It is safe to say that I am exhausted, which sucks because it’s taking away from my posting! Except here is a feature that I have contemplated starting for awhile but have never got around to it.
Within a week, there are usually 4-6 songs that I end up playing the hell out of because I get obsessed with them for the time being. Most of the time they’re new songs but every now and then they are older songs. So, if this post goes anywhere near to decent – every week I’ll post the “holy trinity” of songs that have been owning my iTunes play count.
[MP3] Regina Spektor – Samson
This song is just beautiful. Period. I know I posted on her just recently and didn’t mention this song, so now I am. I can’t even describe how good it is. “You are my sweetest downfall / I loved you first” What a great line. WHAT A GREAT SONG!!
[MP3] Mason Jennings – If You Ain’t Got Love
Mason could sing a story about a serial killer terrorizing half of Wyoming and I would still find it to be a great story. His truly folk-esque style of telling great stories with his lyrics is an amazing skill. This is no exception to that statement. This song off his new album (Boneclouds) is a great gem.
[MP3] The Format – She Doesn’t Get It
The past two weeks were great new albums from old artists week for me. I wasn’t sure what to think of their sophomore release at first, but it’s really starting to grow on me. The use of raspy chanting in the second verse as well as the use of bells in the chorus is a new and great touch they’ve utilized between albums.
I give you this week’s Holy Trinity – The Format, The Spektor, and The Holy Jennings.
