2014 Memories

1 Comment

My friend gave me a great idea for 2014. Instead of a resolution, you write down one good thing/memory everyday and place it in a jar. Then, at the end of the year, you can look back at the great things that happened.

This is my version of that.

2014 Memories: Day 3

Today is a snow day! I get to stay home and drink some tea.

Home in my own bed. Back in the city after vacationing in Nashville. It’s always good to sleep in my own bed!

On the Go: My Autumn List Part 2

Say what you will about Glee, those kids can sing and nothing feels better than hearing a song that used to make you cringe be sung in a way that makes you want to cry. Usually I would also put the original, but it’s not even worth it (sorry Ne-Yo).

Let Me Love You (Until You Learn To Love Yourself)

Then we have Running Up That Hill covered by Track & Field:

I hadn’t heard this version before and I think it’s my favorite of all of them. This version is from the Warehouse 13 Soundtrack. Epic! There isn’t an official video, but this one is good and it has the lyrics (sorry if you’re not into lyric videos!)

Running Up That Hill

And for some good ol’ fashion Florence + The Machine:

I finally created a Pandora channel for FTM and when I first heard this song I thought she was saying, “I’m so happy.” You can imagine my chagrin when I tried looking for it and realized it was Heavy.

Heavy In Your Arms

And of Finally Breath of Life, also by Florence + The Machine. The movie was blah, but this song. This song gave me life after watching the comatose looking Kristen Stewart try to act like a brave version of Snow White (lest we all forgot, she ran away from her evil Stepmama in the Disney version and then ate the apple from the stranger…so, not the best role model out there).

This version is so epic and I am partial to orchestras as you all well know, so here we go!

On the Go: My Autumn List Part 1

So I’ve been doing who knows what these last few months. I have been listening to some good music though!

 

So in no particular order (in fact, I hit randomize on my iPod) let’s start with Phoenix:

I first heard this band during the Made in America Festival in August. I DIED. They are fantastic!! My favorite song so far?

1901

 

Next came Lana Del Rey with Young and Beautiful from the Great Gatsby Soundtrack:

Can I just say how amazing her voice is? How perfect she is in every way? ::swoon:: And that Orchestra!

Young and Beautiful

 

Next up is Ivan & Alyosha:

On Facebook, Bones (the TV show) was telling people to go listen to them. So I did. And I fell in love. This group reminds of One Republic. They are so good, I think I have two of their songs on here!

The Fold

I don’t know when I first heard this song, but it was a while back and I’ve been meaning to post it. I’m sure you’ve heard it already, but…

Enjoy!
