I love reading and making lists especially of books and songs. One way I thought one way I could reward myself is with new music when I hit little goals. I enjoyed reading what people read last month so I thought I'd ask about what your listening to. I like finding new artists and songs or remembering forgotten ones. So for the last few weeks these are a few that I find myself listening to over again.


Wonderful Tonight. Eric Clapton
Thirteen by Big Star
I need my girl by The National
Happy Xmas by John Lennon

Lately? Josh Groban's latest cd, All That Echoes. His last two offerings I've been ambivalent on first listen, and then they grow and grow on me to be favorites. This cd is awesome, and improves every time I listen.

Also - The a Civil Wars. Nuff said.

Honestly? OK. What's on repeat right now for me are:

Chase & Status - International (Skrillex remix)
Major Lazer - Watch Out For This (Bumaye)

I'm totally into bass and dancehall. Always have been. Even when I was 12 I loved electronica and bass...and there's a very weird connection between the Finnish people and reggae. I have no idea why, but I suppose Jamaicans and Finns are both rebels enough to like similar kind of music :-)

It's so cold and snowy here but hot hot hot where my husband is. So to combat the lonliness I am mostly listening to songs that sound like summer and love.

Ever since I saw the charming video for Yalin's "Keyfi Yolunda Aski Sonuda" it has been my go to song. It just makes me dance and dance. I tend to follow it up with Vampire Weekend, especially their new album "Modern Vampires of the City," and finish it out with Bostich + Fussible.

I'm usually a post modern classical kind of gal so this is a very strange soundtrack for me.

James Morrison...have the CD in the car and have been listening to it for about a week now. Before that was Alicia Keys, didn't want to wear the CD out so changed for a while, lol. Her Girl on Fire is awesome!

I really enjoy listening to Crystal Bowersox (American Idol runner up season 9 I think).

Anyway she just came out with a new Christmas song "Coming out for Christmas." it's really quite good. :)

And as far as books. I haven't really had much time to read anything expect School Text books. lol..

I did read a book on Domestic Violence called “Woman submit. Christians & Domestic Violence.” by Jocelyn E Andersen. Very sad book.. So good though.

Major Lazer - Watch Out For This (Bumaye)

I am OBSESSED with the Andy C and Bonde do Role remixes of "Get Free." They were my summer jams and they continue to be my winter jams.

Also obsessed with "Tom Ford" by Jay-Z.

I've been listening to a ton of "psybient" lately - Bluetech, Desert Dwellers, Ott, Younger Brother, Shpongle, really trippy electronic/world music.

I just added the Andy C remix of Get Free to my next commuting/walking playlist. Thank you :-)

I wish there was a really easy way to add some stuff from BBC Radio 1 to my iPod. I don't care for the regular chart music, but I like a lot of the stuff they play in Essential Mix and Annie Mac Mashup.

I'm aging in a weird way. I either want just peace and quiet or plenty of bass and hoptastic beats! :-) I also like to listen to some mellow electronica from Digitally Imported as background music when I'm working on my computer.

Oh, new to me music to look up. I love that so thank you.
@ Artic Mama when I see your name I keep reading it as Artic Monkeys and then I want to go listen to I bet you look good on the dancefloor.
@tefrey I just watched that video and yes so charming. Your dance dance comment reminded me of a video I like Bon Iver and Lykke Li doing Dance Dance Dance. A blog I like, a beautiful mess, mentioned Vampire Weekend and I keep meaning to look them up so thanks for the reminder
@FrouFrou have been listening to Girl on Fire and Brand New Me find them inspiring
@ SparklyBunny Have never really listened to electronica. I read in an old Health mag that around 30 min of dancing can burn around 200 cal. So have been adding this to my daily exercises as know I can do this. Surprised to find how hard it is to let go even in my own house and just dance. Anyway maybe should look up some dance hall music. Two I like for this is Michael Franti Say hey I love you feat. Cherine Anderson and Janelle Monae Tightrope
@CherryPie99 am planning on downloading some Imagine Dragons today. Saw them on Grammys so great.

You seem like someone who'd love Streetlife DJs (or most things that are signed with Kitsuné) :-) Unfortunately they took down all their podcasts, but I have (I think) all of them, so if you want them I'm happy to share.

Honestly right now, I must be going through some changes, because the music I want to hear has switched up in these past few weeks.
But heavy rotation:
Beyonce - Drunk in Love
James Blake - Retrograde
Kat Dahlia - Gangsta
Banks - This Is What It Feels Like, Waiting Game
and like, SERIOUSLY, both Band of Skulls albums Sweet Sour and Baby Darling Doll Face Honey

@MarliQQ & Joefla 70 both of you have given me a couple more songs and or artist I am not familiar with so will have to look up. I downloaded Reflektor so thank you for that. Only had a few from Funeral.

@EmCoconut I have never really watched Buffy and so thought you meant a sound track from that episode, lol. Two shows I have gotten music from where the actors sing is Nashville & Gilmore Girls. Nashville was If I Didn't Know Better and Adios old friend. Both from Sam Palladio character the first a duet with Clare Bowen. From Gilmore is Lilly a Passion sung by the Town Troubadour who is Grant Lee Phillips.

I cannot get enough of retrograde! I am embarrassed to say that I've been walking to a playlist w 12 tracks on it but six of them are retrograde. He also has a great song w a sample of Big Boi that I love, think it's called Every Day I Ran.

And shea, I just downloaded Tightrope and I'm loving Alabama Shakes, too. :)

rubidoux Lol, I just love his voice, he can come over my house, be a slob and a jerk to me, and all he would have to do is sing and I would melt. Honestly, the way he starts out the song Retrograde, he could just hum to me and I would be done for :hug:. Have him singing NO Limit to Your Love, :D.

Shea I'm hijacking your thread :devil:

I am music junkie, so I would love to have more chime in with what they are currently listening to. I am compiling a heap of goodies for a music project, and would love to hear some new stuff, and maybe from genres that I wouldn't think to jump to. I love just about anything from mindless music to thought provoking sounds :D I know there are some people who are adamant about their music taste being better than others, so let's see some music people! :carrot: I will also post periodically stuff I'm currently listening to and that honestly changes so often, I am a moody person...so here...

Clare Maguire - This is not the End
Selah Sue - Summertime, All I Need From You, Raggamuffin
Melanie Fiona - 4 AM
Counting Crows - Colorblind
Fink - This is the thing
Keri Hilson - Slow Down
Little Dragon - Twice
Bond - Explosive
Jazmine Sullivan - 10 Seconds
Kate Havnevik- Unlike Me, Suckerlove
Mumford & Sons - Hold on to what you believe
Escala - Palladio
Ben Howard - Esmerelda
