The Top 5…

I realize that successful blogs have to have a purpose, a theme, a united front that every post relates back to.

This isn’t one of those posts.  Sorry.

I do hear, however, that lists are in.  The Top 10 Disney Songs!  11 Ways You’re Doing Your Hair Wrong!  50 Ways to Leave Your Lover!

…wait.  Scratch that last one, it’s taken.

So, ladies and gentlemen, in spirit of the top 5 numbered lists, I give you The Top 5 Songs That Have Been Stuck in My Head Lately.

Passion Pit – Take a Walk

I have a thing for songs with solid beats and minor chords in the background.  Solid lyrics never hurt either.

Vampire Weekend – Unbelievers

I also have a thing for sweet, simple, catchy songs.  Dance Music, anyone?

Arctic Monkeys – Do I Wanna Know?

I love me some dirty guitar riffs.  Has a taste of Black Keys…you know, before they started sucking.

Bastille – Bad Blood

Honestly, I have no idea why I like this.  I’m not sure if I actually do.  But it keeps popping up, so there you go.

The Wood Brothers – The Muse

This song, by my amazing guitar teacher, carried me through my breakup and all the subsequent adventures that I’ve been on since then.  Oliver is an amazing songwriter (not to mention an amazing human being), and I hope one day I can grow up to write songs that he does.  It’s not looking likely,  but a girl can dream, can’t she?

There you have it, folks…some insight into my brain.  I’ve always been plagued with songs rumbling around in there, day and night, and so now you can join me.

What have you been listening to lately?
