But I Do And I Don’t Want To Care Anymore
If I Close My Eyes Would It Spare Me The Sight?
Of Decay, Corruption, How We Nurture Destruction
And Everything That Will Doom Us All.
After we finish ourselves off, we ain’t leaving
it’s good to go down with an old friend believing
you better bet, we’re gonna tie one on tonight
you never left even though you’d said that you might
I come back here to remember what it was like
"Breathe Me In" - Jared & The Mill [Official Music Video]
Jared & The Mill is good, toe-tapping, banjo-strumming folk music and is especially great for those of you looking for someone to fill the Mumford & Sons-sized hole in your heart.
Come Together/Royals - The Beatles & Lorde
#the first note of come to together hit my ears and a tear dropped
I never reblog these unofficial mash-ups, but… DAMN.
This is just mmmm
You are what you love, not who loves you.
what i need is a FUCK ME song mix. i don’t have one. i have sad mixes, workout mixes, and love mixes, but i don’t have a really. good. fuck. mix.
like, for my money i love the driving guitar on Young Men Dead (Black Angels - not a song about sex, but a killer blood-thick beat), i love the dark and slow inevitability of Rope on Fire (Morphine), and i love the happy, drunken sexiness of Chalak Chalak (from the Devdas ost). i love mixed up and flipped stuff like Make Her Say (Kid Cudi), and Anya Marina’s cover of Whatever You Like.
if you get a moment, can you share with me some songs you love, songs that really get you where your sexy lives? could be anything: covers, remixes, old or new, funsexy or darksexy, whatever.
This one always comes to mind first:
Take a Train (Awakening) - Kidneythieves
Then on driving beat alone I can think of these:
I Want You (She’s So Heavy) - Halestorm
Sweat - Snoop Dogg vs David Guetta
Heat - Camo & Krooked
In For the Kill - La Roux (I like Skream’s Lets Get Ravey Remix)
Shot Me Down - Bare
The Alternative - IAMX
And ones that probably shouldn’t be but I totally think are (2 covers and a hilarious double entendre):
My Body is a Cage - Peter Gabriel
Love is a Battlefield - Holly Knight’s Story of O (Sara Skinner)
Private Parts - Halestorm
Talk Dirty - Vintage Klezmer Jason Derulo Cover (with 2 Chainz Rap in Yiddish) (by ScottBradleeLovesYa)
With the rap lyrics SUNG IN YIDDISH, y’all.
Scott Bradlee vintage covers are fantastic.
Tim Curry Street Signs (Rock Follies of ‘77) (by TheMademoiselle36
no comment I can add is sufficient to the task of drawing in all the threads this performance throws out, right up to the moment of its final balcony-ward smile
I don’t remember where we were, but I was singing this in the store the other day.
Now all I need is some Trogdor and a lightswitch rave. And maybe a thing in a bag.
Don’t forget the Teen Girl Squad!
David Bowie - The Stars (Are Out Tonight) (by DavidBowieVEVO)
David Bowie & Tilda Swinton star together in Bowie’s new video, directed by Floria Sigismondi.
This is the most amazing thing you’re ever going to see! Watch it immediately!
LIKE MATTER TOUCHING LIKE MATTER! DOPPELGANGERS! BOWIESES!! SWINTONSESES!!
*chin hands* This is amazing!
Well! I don’t have one specific playlist that I’ve been listening to lately. I’m kind of in what I refer to as a ‘discovery period’ where I listen to a bunch of stuff I’ve never heard before — I use 8tracks and youtube and spotify for that, finding playlists and trying to look for things by people I’ve never heard of.
Last night I was spamming a bit of Scott Bradlee - a restaurant jazz pianist who did a ragtime sort of cover of Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop”. He’s got an album on bandcamp that’s all these ridiculous mashups and they’re pretty amazing.

Because I’m sort of mentally preparing for a bellydance performance in another two months, I’ve been listening to a few songs on repeat, just to figure out rhythm and timing and decide how much I might want to dance to any of them. Those songs are “Bottom of the River” by Delta Rae, “Stay” by Rihanna & Mikky Ekko, and “Stay” by Sara Bareilles.
And, because sometimes I just find something that settles in my brain and won’t let go despite how unlike anything else I like it is, I’ve been listening to a bunch of songs from the show Nashville. Specifically the songs sung by Clare Bowen & Sam Palladio. I don’t listen to a lot of country but when I find something I like, I tend to overload listening to it and the songs from Nashville are like that for me.
[Nashville is kind of a ridiculously overacted drama about country music stars, but it has a lot of people in it that I like, which drew me to it in the first place: Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, and Charles Esten (which is Chip Esten of Who’s Line fame).]
Everything else I’ve been listening to is mostly coming from me browsing 8tracks for random playlists and then letting it just play in the background, so I get to hear a variety of things.
