Everybody loves alliteration. Hence, the choice of Monday as a good day for music. I’m a little bitter on this Monday, as I realized that Muse and Passion Pit are coming to town on Friday night, and I can’t go. I’ve been loving Passion Pit, recommended by my friend Danielle (a.k.a. HeyyyBrother) a while back. I think of her every time I listen to Little Secrets, and I believe she also thinks of me as well.
Broken Bells‘ The Ghost Inside has been on my mind lately, too. I’ve always liked this song, but not until I saw the video did I LOVE it. Perhaps because it stars my girl crush, Christina Hendricks. Perhaps because the narrative of the video is so futuristic and compelling. It kind of reminds me of Firefly, the television series, in which, coincidentally, Christina Hendricks had several appearances.
One more song recommendation: Mark Ronson & the Business Intl. On horrible Monday mornings this song, Bang, Bang, Bang, is pretty much on a loop as I get ready for work. It never ceases to make me dance around and feel like I can face the day. Thanks to my friend Marta for this one!
I discovered today that Urban Outfitters has free downloads for Music Monday. Five new songs here!
As you can tell, I’m pretty reliant on friends for good music advice. Any recommendations for me for Music Monday?
