She & Him reign supreme once again! They did have some stiff competition with the new Kings of Leon album, which, by the way, is pretty awesome.
I've been in love with a lot of female-fronted bands lately, and I decided to make a love mix for the Fianz with a female-voiced theme. In the past, I've always run into trouble making sweet love mixes because sometimes a dude singing to or about a girl just isn't what I'm trying to get across to my own dude. Also, a lot of female-voiced love songs are just straight cheesy. So I assigned myself to make a mix of female-voiced awesome songs that weren't cheesy. And by this point, I've already used my go-to girl love song anthems in previous mixes for him. Thus, I listened to a lot of woman-fronted music last week, and a lot of it new. But not all those artists made the cut. Sometimes when I make mixes, I have to listen to the "nominees" like 20 times before I decide if they're worthy or fit - or not. And all apologies, but I can't very well share my awesome little love mix with anybody but the Fianz. :)
But! I wrote that whole long paragraph with a point: if anybody has any rockin', non-cheesy, fem-vocaled music they think I'd like, make your recommendation!
And finally, I can't believe it's been nearly a year, but Motion City Soundtrack have been nominated for a Best Video Woodie Award for "It Had to Be You!" You can vote as many times as you want! So, please, please, please, please vote! I'm probably going to get PESKY with this, just saying. Also, it gives me the perfect excuse to repost this screencap of the Fianz from the video, which I still love to death:
