Song Lyric of the Day:
I don’t know what this is / But you got me good / Just like you knew you would / I don’t know what you do / But you do it well / I’m under your spell
I want new music and I have iTunes gift cards burning a hole in my virtual pocket. My problem is that I don’t know what I should buy. Anyone got any recommendations?
To give you an idea of what I’m into these days, my current favorite album is Writer’s Block by Peter Bjorn and John (oh, how I love “Amsterdam”). My wish list of artists I want to play in Knoxville includes Franz Ferdinand, Flogging Molly, The VLA, Snow Patrol, Paul Oakenfold, The Von Bondies, and The Fratellis — and those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. Of course, this being Knoxville, it’ll be a miracle if any of those groups ever makes a pit stop here. (Note to Flogging Molly: We have Irish pubs here! I swear we do!) Since not everyone who lives here likes country music (ahem).
I’ve also been listening to Moby‘s 18 and The Killers‘ Sam’s Town albums a lot lately. Not as eclectic as my tastes usually run, although I’m also listening to disco and ’80s music (best. music. ever.) as part of my workout playlist (I highly recommend MP3-compatible treadmills).
In the spirit of new music, I’ll leave you with Duffy‘s video for today’s Song Lyric of the Day, “Mercy.” Be sure to check out her site — she’s got other equally kickass songs available for listening.
