Long day tonight. School and work for over nine hours. Sleep is creeping up on me so I figure why fight it? Go with the flow and sleep. Gotta check new music first. Two weeks until I see Anberlin for the last night. That’s going to be a night filled with many emotions. What did Dave Chappelle say all those years ago, “It’s a celebration; enjoy yourself!” Yeah, I’ll do that. Here’s what I listened to last week:
1. The Beatles- 52 plays
2. Jars of Clay- 43 plays
2. Danny Brown- 43 plays
4. Childish Gambino- 38 plays
5. Jack White- 35 plays
Get to Know- I’m almost 100% certain I’ve posted this song in the past, but it’s worthy of another listen because it’s so great. The lyrics are fantastic. I like how the song is constructed too. The strings added in during the build-up is a nice touch to emphasize emotion. This has to be some of the best opening lines of a song:
I remember it well
The first time that I saw
Your head around the door
'Cause mine stopped working
It seems different, but I’d try it.
I have to go here while I’m in Arizona. The beauty is undeniable.
My cat died last night. This was her at Christmas one year. She loved Christmas. She would always lay in boxes and on wrapping paper.
I have The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts CLub Band spinning on my turntable. I picked it up tonight at Zia. What a great record! I’m off to study and grab some food in a minute, but I wanted to share the plays from last week before I do.
1. The Beatles- 75 plays
2. City and Colour- 66 plays
3. Banks- 52 plays
4. Emery- 49 plays
5. Silverstein- 38 plays
"A Day in the Life" is such an amazing song. I’m in awe of it. If you’ve never heard it please go listen to it.
