SPRING = CHANGE
Spring is in the air – flowers are blooming, people are humming and folks are falling in and out of love. Here’s a soundtrack for change….
1. Bon Iver - Skinny Love
A catchy and tragic song about the raw emotions of love and letting go. If this is what 3 months in a cabin in Wisconsin can create – we should all be so lucky.
2. The Breeders – Bang On
Danceable, yet sad and lonely. The song you listen to when you’re trying to figure out what happened and why you are alone. Nice to see Kim Deal still making music.
3. The Blow – Come on Petunia
A nice take on the Police song. Love the line….You’re all Jenny and Lindsey and fine and I’m underwater, shedding my mind. The story of complete infatuation.
4. Mercury Rev – People Are So Unpredictable (There’s No Bliss Like Home)
One moon, one you… and one chance to kiss you….there’s no bliss like home.
5. Wolf Parade – Fine Young Cannibals
No idea where the name of this song comes from but love the verse, ‘I will crawl right back to you; under the smoldering summer sky; I’ll be there soon.’
6. Starfucker – Florida
Guilty pleasure song about long distance love from a couple of guys from Portland, OR. They are playing in the Rose City this weekend.
7. M.I.A. with Timbaland – Come Around
OK, so I just love her and wanted to hear this song – could totally do without the Timbaland portion…. ‘come to my teepee’ what’s up with that?
8. The Juan Maclean – Happy House
Thought we should end the mix by throwing a dance party and wishing everyone a happy house. Nancy Whang from LCD Soundsystem is a great addition – thanking her lover for being so ‘damn excellent’. Hopefully, we can all be so lucky! Launch me into space…..
