[songs that make me smile no matter what.]
6. "Everyday is a Holiday" - Esthero featuring Sean Lennon. This song puts me in such a good mood whenever it comes on! It's got "la da das" and horns and when I'm walking down the street I want to break out in song like I'm in a music video. It's such a great walking-in-the-city song because there are lyrics like, "hopped on the metro, and I'm on my way home, but I can't get him out of my mind." Which (obviously!) reminds me of Jesse, WHICH may or may not have made me include it on my last mixtape (playlist, whatever) to him.
Sidenote: I've decided to make one of those muxtape things I'm hearing so much about, and I'll be linking it here soon! It's just a playlist you can listen to over the computer without downloading or anything - it's pretty brilliant, in my opinion. It even works on my work computer, which never plays anything on youtube or song-wise because of the company firewalls. Check out Erica's HERE! And if you have one, let me listen to it :D
Okay, in two last snippets of music news:
1. My dad e-mailed me this morning because he heard the New Kids on the Block were going to perform on the Today show Friday. My obsession as a kid was pretty fierce. Not gonna lie. Even my dad remembers!
2. Liz Phair's Exile in Guyville is being re-released on ATO Records, slash Dave Matthews label. Also, she's now signed to the label and her next album is due in the fall. Mr. Matthews, I don't loathe you so much as your fans (no offense), but well done, well done. I didn't much like Liz's last fare into recording, but damned if I don't listen to whitechocolatespaceegg at least once a month. Fingers crossed.
