Recommend a Song


   I guess kind of necessary to post something Christmas themed today, so here is my official Christmas post of 2009! I wasn’t really sure what I should do for this post, but after much debate I decided that it would be easier to do just recommend some of my favorite Christmas songs (I promise that next year I’ll come up with something more interesting). As always feel free to recommend some of your own favorite Christmas songs in comments. So without further ado here are some of my favorite Christmas songs: (more…)

RevolutionI was listening to Miranda Lambert’s great new album again today and the track “The House That Built Me” once stood out to me. So, I decided to recommend it for all of you who haven’t picked up her new album yet. It’s really something special. The song is about a woman who goes back to her old house and ask its current owner to let her  just walk around it for a bit. She promises not to take anything “but a memory”. Like many of the greatest country songs it has a certain simplicity to it that we can all relate to. Bottom line is that it’s a truly great song that will hopefully be one of her next singles.

       After announcing that “Funhouse” would be her album’s next single I was disappointed, though not surprised, that “Crystal Ball” wasn’t chosen instead. P!nk herself said that this is the song that she is most proud of from the album and that she recorded it in one take. It is my favorite track from her Funhouse album. It is this cool folky song and I love the lyrics. From an artistic point of view this is one of the best songs she’s ever recorded.

       As I mentioned sometime in the past week I will be leaving for vacation on Friday. So I was wondering whether or not anybody knew any good vacation themed. If so, then please feel free to go ahead and recommend it! And on a side note I would just like say that tomorrow I will be posting multiple times to try and make up for my upcoming absences.

       Every once in a while I name a song the summer song of the day. Lately, I’ve been running out of ideas of what are good songs that remind me of summer. Luckily I’ve come up with a solution. So today I thought I would give you readers a chance to name a couple of songs that remind you of summer. The only rule is that it can’t be a song that I’ve already named a summer song. I look forward to see what songs remind you guys of summer. So start recommending!

Print   Every once and awhile I will recommend a song that I like and have been listening to lately or just happened to cross my mind. Sometimes I might be asking for recommendations so that’s when you readers will come in.

       The first ever recommend a song is “Who’d Have Known” by UK singer Lily Allen. In the past couple of months I started listening to her music and really liked. I was listening to her sophomore album, It’s Not Me, It’s You, (more…)
