Veronica- Elvis Costello. It’s Wednesday and I’m already feeling sufficiently yawny so I’m just going to chuck one of my old favourites in your direction. Veronica is a lovely, lovely song and any memories of Veronica Mars are just a pleasant, delightfully sarcastic afterthought.
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- She & Him. If you hadn’t guessed, Christmas has started on this Tumblr. I’m currently obsessed with She & Him’s Christmas album an it makes for perfect Sunday chilling mode.
Sorry for that pun. Welcome to our track-by-track review of Glee’s latest Christmas album. There are some crackers from Darren Criss, Lea Michele and the new kid whose name I still don’t know! Have fun- enjoy your Fridays!
Quelqu’un M’a Dit- Carla Bruni. I gave up french, but I can just about get through this song. Lyrically, of course. There’s no difficulty in listening to something as beautiful and tender as this. Listen and rejoice that there are only two days until the week. You’re welcome.
Waking Up In Vegas- Katy Perry (MTV Unplugged.) This live version is extra special- the male vocalist adds something completely new to the song. It’s a highlight from One Of The Boys and it’s a highlight here. Take a listen, wonder at and buy her latest single dammit!
You Oughta Know- Alanis Morisette. You Oughta Know, Santana’s favourite songs comes form one of the most famous debut albums of all time. OF ALL TIME. It’s a little bit angsty, a little bit vulnerable and a lot awesome. This will most likely be a reminder of how cool Alanis Morisette really is, so enjoy!
Neon Bible- Arcade Fire. From a band that has continued to wow, you can’t get much better than this rousing tune. It’s a neater, more enclosed tune than we normally hear from Arcade Fire- perhaps what makes it that bit more special. Have a great weekend!
Hometown Glory- Adele. Yes, yes I know Someone Like You is very good. But there’s a rawness that makes Adele’s first album more magical for me. Hometown Glory is one of the most moving songs I’ve heard in the last five years and is filled with memories for me. Take a listen and enjoy your Monday night.
Love Lockdown- Kanye West. It’s Sunday morning, let’s all relax. I have a boring day of work, reading and more work ahead of me. At least I can do it all in pyjamas. I find Love Lockdown to be one of Kanye’s most sophisticated tracks, and listening to it after a year or two is an absolute treat. Hope you all had sufficiently awesome weekends!
It’s Friday. I had the most dreadful week at school, am ill and am about to embark on a nap that may or may not last until tomorrow morning. While trying to find a song of the day, I scrolled down until I found one that was most appropriate. So here you go, a brilliant little Strokes number. It raised my spirits a (little) bit. Have a good night, guys.
Hey guys! Welcome to our first installment of our Friday posts. Round one: The songs that have been spinning around our heads for the last week. We have some power-pop, depressing pop and catchy pop for you this week! Take a listen, have safe Fridays!
Hannah- Freelance Whales. From one of the most intricate albums I’ve ever listened to, comes Hannah. It’s a beautiful song, that evolves naturally and will firmly embed itself in your head/heart. Er the Criss gene pool? Music says thank you.
Breakable- Ingrid Michaelson. I’ve always been a huge fan of Ingrid Michaelson. Her song, The Way I Am is utterly beautiful and the album that the song is from, Boys & Girls is equally stunning. Breakable is half Regina Spektor, half mellow Kate Nash and completely endearing. Take a listen, it’s Tuesday. You need a break.
You guys ate up the last bit of rock and roll I gave you, so here’s some equally rocking desert. The Stone Foxes actually supported The Black Keys on tour and are awesome. Here’s Stomp, guaranteed to add some badassness to your Saturday. That is now a word.
Morning all! Welcome to the weekend (or should that be Weeknd?) and another post of Ten Things I Love About Pop. This week we have Christmas music (thanks to She & Him and CrissColfer) and a hearty batch of covers, paternity cases and music videos. Check it out:
We’re back on the Glee front! And it feels like a year ago with a Katy Perry and Darren Criss combo. Hey, we’re not complaining, that was probably the best thing about this episode. Here’s the Gleecap, you guys!
Hey guys! To all U.S followers, I hope you enjoyed the new episode of Glee. To any U.K viewers, we just have to wait another day! Anyway, to further Glee-ful feelings, check out my list of Top Ten Glee songs. We’ve finally reacher the heady heights of Katy Perry, Robin Thicke and Abba! Check it out here!
Bad Kids- Black Lips. I need something upbeat for my Wednesday afternoon and this does the trick. Take a break from your homework and have a quick dance around to this. It will keep the doctor away. Or at the very least, boredom. It was also featured in (500) Days of Summer, with Joseph Gordon Levitt and Zooey Deschanel. Speaking of, we were saddened by the news that she and Death Cab lead singer, Ben Gibbard had split. If there isn’t hope for indie rockstars, where do the rest of us stand?
