Music Monday #10: New Year's Edition!

I just want to post this song and give a shout out to all my friends. Let's keep this "good thing going" in 2019. ❤

Music Monday #9

This song is about living your best life and truly not giving a fuck. It has creative and inspiring lyrics, and is on the Silicon Valley soundtrack (say what you will about the show, but it has great music).

Music Monday #8

I fell in love with Lemolo after hearing this song on a local-bands-only segment on the radio. Her sound is really unique and I later found out that we are both fans of Radiohead!

Music Monday #7

It's Music Monday again! I hate to be one of those "stereotypical" Radiohead fans who claim they're the end-all-be-all of bands, so I'll openly admit it's hard to introduce people to Radiohead. I still think they're one of the best bands in existence. Hopefully I've chosen a song that anyone can get into. (Bonus: Ska fans should check out the cover of this song by Streetlight Manifesto!)

Music Monday #6

Louis Cole! Originally I was going to post a song from his new album (which is excellent, BTW), but this video is so freaking amazing (like many of LC's other videos), you just have to watch.

Music Monday #5

This week's song is by Streetlight Manifesto, a group of superbly talented musicians who put on a phenomenal show. Thank you to my friend Nate for being the one to introduce me to Streetlight, even if it took like 4 years before I got around to listening to an album. (Also! If you prefer acoustic guitar, check out Toh Kay's solo version of this song.)

Music Monday #4

If you love either pop-punk OR a capella, I guarantee you’ll love both by the end of this medley. The Lounge Kittens are (self-admittedly) influenced by Richard Cheese (who has an amazing jazz/lounge cover of “Down With The Sickness” that you should also listen to).

Music Monday #3

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are my all-time desert-island favorite band. How this song wasn't an A-side I'll never quite understand, the lyrics are so touching. (But you can find it on their greatest hits album.)

Music Monday #2

I've been hackin' for about seventeen years, okay? I don't type my stuff anymore, I just code it in my head. I can do that. No disrespect, but that's just how I am.

Music Monday #1

The first time I listened to this song, I misheard the line as "searching for diamonds in a pile of gold" (instead of "pile of coal"). I almost like that better than the intended carbon analogy. Your life can be full of gold, but no amount of effort will ever turn gold into diamond.

Music Monday Posts

By now I'm sure you know how much I love music. I've decided to start a new series of posts, which will go up every Monday morning. The purpose of Music Monday is to share a good song that captures the essence of an artist that I really like. The first one goes up tomorrow. Hope you enjoy it! 🎶
