Editing can become a little overwhelming at times and so can sitting for hours on end (I'm praying I don't get a secretary butt). I've realized that the only thing that keeps me sane while I edit for long periods of time is music. Music has always been a huge part of my life so it's really no surprise that it's my secret weapon. I thought it would be fun to share some of the songs that move me, rock me, get me... Just kidding. Here ya go...
Adele - Cold Shoulder - "You shower me with words made of knives..." Harsh sentence, great song.
Cake - Comfort Eagle - I could see how other people might not enjoy this song, but I LOVE it.
Keren Ann - Lay Your Head Down - (3:24-end) makes me very happy.
Landon Pigg - Falling in Love at a Coffee Shop - I love sweet boys and he seems to be one.
Kings of Leon - On Call - Thanks Emily for introducing me to this band via your blog.
Sia - Lentil - (3:20-end) I would do anything to have the power she has. This girl can SING. And if you're in need of a good laugh go to itunes and look at her album cover. It's... colorful.
Kate Nash - Merry Happy - Anything that says, "Don't tell me that you didn't try and check out my bum..." in the first 30 seconds is bound to be a favorite of mine. Plus, the beat of the song is so cute and different.
Damien Rice - 9 Crimes - Sad, but beautiful. Strangely this is my favorite type of music.
A Fine Frenzy - Almost Lover - One of my all-time favorite songs. And her voice is insanely beautiful.
Angels & Airwaves - Everything's Magic - Roll your windows down, let the wind blow in your hair kind of song.
She & Him - I Just Love You - This is Zoey Deschanel. I fell in love with her voice on Elf.
Rachael Yamagata - Be Be Your Love - Oh how I love your voice, Rachael. So rich with a little bit of scratchiness.
Fort Minor - Red to Black (edited) - Heard this on a trip to Lake Powell and I just love it. Cool beat.
Imogen Heap - The Moment I Said It - (2:55-end) I can't help but stop whatever I'm doing to hear this section of the song. Her voice is hypnotizing. I saw her at a small venue in SLC a couple years ago and she is so very talented and kinda quirky. I LOVE HER.
Cold Play - See You Soon (Live) - I want to learn this song on the guitar even though I don't play.
Cat Power - Could We - Crazy cool voice.
Katy Perry - I'm Still Breathing - Can't stand her song they're playing on all the radio stations, but this one I can handle.
John Mayer - Man on the Side (Live) - Not a well-known song of his. It might be my favorite. It's about a boy humble enough to wait for a girl.
Mute Math - You Are Mine - "Everyone has their obsession, consuming thoughts, consuming time. They hold high their prized possession that defines the meaning of their lives... You are mine." SUCH a cool song. Not a popular band, but I bet they will be soon.
That was fun for me... I might make it a common post subject from here on out. I have way too many favorites that one post won't even touch the surface. I'll have to spread them out over a period of time.
Here's a shot to leave you with. I plan on posting the rest on Thursday, so come on back ya'll!
