i love music. love, love, love it. can't live without. in fact, there's not very much that we do without music on. we use the tv as literal background noise- turned on to one of the many xm music stations. the blue, bouncing directv symbol used to mesmerize b, as a baby.
so i often think about putting music on my blog ... and then i remember how much i generally hate music on blogs. it interferes with my own music that's inevitably playing or it's too loud, or it's a song that i hate. i asked on twitter to see if others agreed with me. turns out, most dislike it too - 75% of people said they dislike it!
disclaimer: there is one blog though that has music that makes me happier though... but i always prepare when i'm ready to read her blog. i turn off my own music, set my speakers & get ready, cause most of the time, she has stellar tunes. i've mentioned her before .... www.kellehampton.com ...check her out if you want some good music!
anyway, back to it. instead of forcing you all to 'x' out of my blog or scream when i scare you with music blaring in your speakers ... or worse- waking your napping kiddo up because of it, i'll save you that headache.
so, without further ado - here's my current favorite playlist.
wait til you my smile - alicia keyes
simple man - lee dewyze (yes, the american idol. i love him.)
warm whispers - missy higgins
this years love - david gray
beast of burden - lee dewyze (him again.)
by your side - tenth avenue north
set the fire to the third bar - snow patrol & martha wainwright
breathe me - sia
the boxer - lee dewyze (and again. i wasn't joking when i said i love him.)
where i stood - missy higgins
paperweight - joshua radin & schuyler fisk
little house - amanda seyfried
this is the thing - fink
hallelujah - lee dewyze (be still my heart. most fabulous rendition of this ever.)
in all honesty, this could go on for days, but these are my current, absolute favorites.
what about you? i'd love to hear what your favorite songs are...
