This song is less than 24 hours new to me, but it made me smile and then kept calling my name, so I felt the urge to pass it along!
It reminds me of a lot of things, things I can’t put my finger on. I hear faint memories of
XTC (especially at/after the 2:25 mark), I hear some 60′s influences…and something else so flippin’ familiar! No matter, it just makes me smile and that is so important lately! I haven’t taken the time to listen to the lyrics closely, it is mostly the feel of the song that draws me back…again and again!
mp3hugger for another great recommendation!

“Something in Common” – Free Energy
I must really like this song. I saved it in my “songs to post” folder at least three different times. Or maybe that means it’s been posted around on the music blogosphere a lot recently?? Either way, I appreciate it.

“My Will is Good” – Port O’Brien
A very different feel from the first song that I posted from them, , but I am finding that I like its atmosphere a lot! “I Woke Up Today”

I find my body moving joyfully to this song.

“Change of Heart” – El Perro Del Mar
Nice. I hear this song and am wishing that I was walking in the woods on a beautiful Fall day. Watching two gold dusted strong men do acrobatics didn’t come to mind at all…

“Surrender” Cheap Trick cover – OX
I loved Cheap Trick as a teen, this cover brings back some great memories, but also has a life of its own.

“1901″ – Phoenix
I’ve posted this song before, but recently it’s been featured on a Cadillac car commercial…I stop and listen each and every time I see it. Reminding me just how much I liked the song in the first place!

“Torn Blue Foam Couch” – Grand Archives
Ah, this one I’ve also posted before. I heard it the other day and my breath caught and my heart started to ache. This is the reason I love music so much, its ability to reach places and emotions that I didn’t know existed or thought I had wrapped tightly and put away.

“My Body’s a Zombie for You” – Dead Man’s Bones
Because it’s October, a Zombie movie is out and the Dead Man’s Bones album is dropping this Tuesday, plus the fact that I am getting a kick out of this song. Dead Man’s Bones is a project between actor Ryan Gosling, Zach Shields, and the Silverlake Conservatory of Music Children’s Choir.
