the sounds of september

well, thank goodness i got caught up on suits recently, so i'd have some songs to put on the playlist! i don't do much listening to the radio, so it's movies, tv shows, and random pandora stations that help me find my tunes.

but, can we talk about the fact that it's september??!! what tha?! june came and flew, july came and flew, and august zoooomed on by, and here we are - football (oh, joy), cooler, shorter days, leaves falling, and pumpkins everywhere. i sometimes wish i lived somewhere with an eternal summer. but, mr man couldn't be happier. football widows unite.

ok, what are you listenin' to? any movies i need to see that have amazing soundtracks? do tell - i wanna be like the cool kids!

on the air of august

a little late to the party here, but it was quite the time finding songs for the list this month. i dug in the archives, called on all my peeps for suggestions, and still just added the last song today.

lots going on here. wouldn't you love to hear about it?! sheesh - i'm trying. really trying. but the clock never stops ticking, and the world never stops turning. so, maybe someday i'll catch you up!

in the meantime - i'm struggling with the songs, so keep me in the know of what's tickling your ears lately. i'm so behind on my shows, I can't even pull from there! so, help a sister out - k? love you, mean it, bye!

july's jingles

oh, hey there, my three readers. thank you for your lovely comments on june's playlist! and, here we are for another round of only posting the playlist on the blog. writing takes time, y'all. and, as soon as i sit down to pen what is sure to be riveting stuff...squirrel! i have so much to share, say, tell you, but i don't know that it belongs here in the design space. i want to shift this space a bit. get more real. but i don't yet know what that looks like. if you've got idears, let 'er rip!

the ol' shazam paid off this month with 15 songs for me to share with you! no idea where I heard most of them, but whatevs yo! i heard the norah jones version of i think it's going to rain today on the sarah pandora station the other day, and i was thrust back into a 1988 movie theater trying to see thru the gallons of tears i was crying during beaches. the soundtrack was my first CD, and i listened to that thing ad nauseum. hearing it reminded me just how much i love me some bette midler, and that i can quote beaches like nobody's biz.

so you've heard the paramore song, have you? well, i've somehow avoided it's radio overplay. a friend brought it up when we were talking about how it kinda blows to get older and have to weed thru crap like miscarriages and jobs. one listen and it was love.

speaking of sarah Pandora stations - some girlfriends and I went to see her at chateau st michelle last weekend, and it was amazing. as always. if you've never seen her, make it a point. she rocks it! you'll be pleasantly surprised. but maybe don't go to chateau st michelle. i've heard they frown on cutting lines, sneaking your own booze in, and dancing in the aisles. but, i've just heard that.

on to the music!

junebug, i love you

since yesterday was my birfday, i thought i'd whip up a playlist of some of my fave songs. i can't help it that most of my favorites haven't changed since about 1997, but whatev.

some of these songs are off favorite cds, and I would have put the whole cd on the playlist, but i spared you. if you care to listen to the whole cd of my faves, they are: dave's crash, big head todd 's sister sweetly, heart's bad animals (this tape was on repeat in the tape deck from sophomore thru senior year), sarah's fumbling towards ecstacy, toad's dulcinea, and keane's under the iron sea.

so, if you were to create a list of 20 of your faves, what would make the cut? i love these kinds of questions, so answer up, you, my three readers.
