Transcendental Thursday – 7/18/2013

This post will feature music that inspires me.

One of my favorite ’90s bands – Live, “Pain Lies on the Riverside”

One of my favorite Irish bands – U2, “Where the Streets Have No Name”

U2, “When Love Comes to Town”

One of my favorite 2000s bands – Incubus, “Drive”

I’m not a huge fan of contemporary Christian music; when it comes to sacred music, I prefer Gregorian chant or gospel. That said, I love this song. Jars of Clay, “Flood”

Yes, rap music can be positive. Arrested Development, “Tennessee”

One of my all-time favorite artists – Bob Marley and the Wailers, “Redemption Songs”

My favorite local radio station has been playing this song at least once an hour, but I had yet to listen to it in its entirety until I went to YouTube.

Lorde, “Royals”

Earworm Wednesday – 6/26/2013

This is technically my car’s earworm. My car stereo displays the title and artist of each song as it plays, and since yesterday, it’s been stuck on this song. I happen to like it too, so here you go.

30 Seconds to Mars, “Up in the Air”:

New Feature – The Debut of Earworm Wednesdays

Earworm:

July 11, 2007 Urban Word of the Day

A song that sticks in your mind, and will not leave no matter how much you try.

The best way to get rid of an earworm is to replace it with another. Be prepared to become a jukebox.

This song has been stuck in my head for the better part of a week. I can’t decipher most of the lyrics, but that doesn’t stop me from singing it under my breath. So, in the true spirit of social media, I share it with you, dear readers.

Alt-J, “Breezeblocks”

Tuesday musings – 3/5/13

OK, so it’s now technically Wednesday. No witty quotes this week, just a song that sums up how I’m feeling.

I spent my summer hanging with 7- and 10-year-old girls. Don’t judge me.

Musical Monday

It’s official. “Soulja Boy (Crank Dat)” is no longer the most obnoxious hip-hop song (and I use the word VERY loosely) ever made. I just looked up “Harlem Shake.” Yuck.

In order to get that out of my brain, I’m listening to and sharing good dance music.

Happy 100th Post to me!

It’s appropriate that I should reach the 100 post milestone now, since many schools where I teach celebrated the 100th day of school this week or last week. So, I’m having a little blog party, and you all are invited!
