Well I think its about time that I started writing again. Probably has something to do with Bill Deys tagging me and no doubt sending all sorts of traffic my way. But a kick in the pants is always a good thing.
So 7 songs that I’m currently digging? Being such a music lover, and always having so many favorites, that’s a tough thing to do. Instead I’m going to pick the last seven songs I bought on iTunes, from most recent back
1. I wish I was a Punk Rocker (With Flowers in my Hair) – Sandi Thom. This Brit is downright amazing! She started out completely DIY putting on concerts from her house on a webcam. Got discovered by a label and put out a record.
2. The Sweet Escape – Gwen Stefani. Ever since Hollaback Girl came out Gwen has been my guilty pleasure. Brings back good memories of sitting in cars and belting out the lyrics at the top of my lungs. Make sense that I would pick up the new single then eh?
3. Mine Again – Black Lab. Purchased as part of Bum Rush the Charts and the song is actually pretty good.
4. Inside In / Inside Out – The Kooks. I love Brit rock and this is another great band from the U.K. Remind me of a combination of Bloc Party, Hot Hot Heat, Kaiser Chiefs and Hard-Fi
5. Walter Reed – Michael Penn. This Penn is Sean Penn’s younger brother and I discovered this song in the closing credits of an episode of House.
6. Home – Michael Buble – Another guilty pleasure
7. Reunited – Peaches and Herb. This 70’s era soul band wins any award in my book purely for their name. Another song purchased because of the memories I have about it. Waiting in line at Jimmy Kimmel and watching him and Clay Aiken perform it.
So thats what I’ve been spending my hard earned cash on. To keep up the tradition I better tag some more people. Lets go with some old friends, Joel Timmerman, Mike Coutu and someone whose always ready to blog Jamie Grant
