I absolutely love music. I can’t go through a day easily without it. Even at work (at least with my early shifts) I’ll have one of three music apps on my phone playing before the store opens. While working on a blog or even writing in my journal, I have to listen to one of my several playlists on itunes (playlists are the best things ever) or on 8tracks. Because of my love of music, I plan on sharing one song a week here on my blog. Either something I’ve always loved or a new song I’ve recently discovered.
Happiness Is Overrated – The Airborne Toxic Event
“I’m sorry, I nearly lost my head
But you know those words that you said
They get stuck here in my head
And this feeling I dread, it makes me wish I was dead
Or just alone instead, I’ll be alone instead
I don’t need anyone in this bed”
I discovered The Airborne Toxic Event (a Los Angeles indie rock band) about three years ago when I was living outside of Pittsburgh with a friend of mine. I’d heard “Sometime Around Midnight” several times on the radio, but it was my friend and roommate T, who really got me interested in the band. Since then, I’ve seen them live and have a couple of their cd’s. They are a great band to turn up and dance out your frustrations to or just unwind with a good book to.
What songs/bands have you been listening to? Feel free to comment with some of your favorites or the ones you just discovered and can’t seem to stop playing.
