happy friday everyone!! what an amazing week this has been – how long do i get to say “grand opening”!! i’m not ready to lose that brand new, full of excitement feeling! so for awhile now, i’ve been thinking that it would be fun to have my hubby put some playlists together – a way to share his
hobby wealth of music knowledge. after his eyes lit up at this idea, (i think i just unleashed a monster! hmm, does he have the password to the blog? i figured – why not have him write a post! hope you enjoy his take!
this is marcus, aka “the hubby” and it looks like i got another promotion here at one sydney road…i think. musicologist is a cool title and not at all made up… since this job didn’t come with a job description, i’m going to access the’ ologist’ part of my title and drop some music knowledge.
you may have noticed the music theme running throughout the online boutique, and you might ask why? piper and i have made music such a huge part of our life together, that it would almost seem blasphemous not to have something related to music here.
i’d like to use these posts to let you know what i’m listening to this week, introduce new stuff, or just to wax-poetic on all things music. the playlist this week is just a great collection of tunes i’m lovin’… enjoy!
1. i can’t go for that by: the bird and the bee
this whole album is a tribute to hall & oates and is awesome. i first heard it down in miami on vacation and fell in love with it. who woulda thunk hall and oates could be so cool (besides me of course)
2. happy meal by: the cardigans
most people only know these guys for ’lovefool’ but they are truly great pop artists. check out the album, life
3. a-punk by: vampire weekend
god bless ska and whatever wave of it we might be on…
4.iggy & angus by: sloan
this canadian foursome is just an awesome rock band. i’m telling you, these canucks can play. go see them sometime
5. playhouses by: tv on the radio
these guys have been around for a while but they’re petty new to me. i like the diversity on this record
6. vaporize by:broken bells
this is the beautiful mélange of the producer danger mouse, and the lead singer of the shins, james mercer. the organ track in this song is tight! and speaking of danger mouse…
7. el dorado sunrise (super chicken) by: cee-lo green
gnarls barkley helped millions of middle-aged women seem cool but before teaming with the afore mentioned danger mouse, cee-lo green was a rapper extraordinaire. this also has a killer organ track.
so, go to your favorite music-downloading site and check out this week’s playlist! feedback is always welcome, but know in advance that i’m always right!
