Matt has XM Radio and has introduced me to some new music. Actually, now that I think of it, we discovered some of these songs through commercials. Which is kind of embarrassing. Also, I really want to work at Sam Adams. Anyway, new music is great, right? Totally. Except that I have a somewhat obsessive personality and you probably wouldn’t want to be here right now because I have listened to the same seven songs about 30 times in a row. If Matt were here, I wouldn’t be listening in such a manner, but he’s not so only the cats can complain and Tabitha is busy hopping around the room while mewling at the top of her lungs, so she’s too busy to notice (or perhaps she’s singing and dancing along??).
I downloaded them off of Amazon so that I could put them on both of my iTunes accounts (yes, I have two and it’s really confusing) and my kindle so that I can maximize my listening options. And right when I get to the end of the really short playlist, I’ll think, “Play them again? Why, yes I will.” And away I go…
The songs, in no particular order are:
Forest Whitaker by Bad Books
Get Away With It by Animal Kingdom
We’re Far Enough From Heaven Now by Deep Cotton
1 by Joy Zipper
“45” by The Gaslight Anthem
Overwhelmed by Tim McMorris
Not Your Fault by AWOLNATION
Fitzpleasure by alt-J
And if you think listening to a bunch of songs over and over is bad, it’s a good thing you didn’t live across the hall from me sophomore year of college when I listened to Creep by Radiohead on repeat. At top volume. For WEEKS.
(Oh, wait, you did? Sorry, Rachel!)
