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.
Bloody Mary (Nerve Endings) – Silversun Pickups
“If we can stay here long enough
We can play with Bloody Mary
Say her name into the dark
Activate our nerve endings.”
I discovered Silversun Pickups (a Los Angeles alternative rock band) about six years ago, right after my mother passed away. I was going through a horribly dark time. I couldn’t follow along with any shows. I’d re-read the same line if I tried to read. Movies left me empty. But music, I could turn it up and either sing along or just let my mind tune out and not miss anything. At the time, Lazy Eye was constantly on the air. I LOVED that song. Since then, I’ve collected three of their cd’s and Bloody Mary has become my favorite song of theirs. It’s a great song to sing out loud while cooking or just cleaning up. I also love to blast it when showering :D
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.
