Most. Half-Assed. Post. Ever. That’s what this is. But since no one but onthevirg has been commenting lately, I don’t really care. (Seriously, if you’ve been reading this blog and not commenting, you suck – how hard is it to just get on and say ‘hi’? I’m friendly…sort of.) Alright, let’s get to it.
So the weather in NY has been beautiful lately, and my music selections have been reflecting this. And with that in mind, here’s some of the goodness that I’ve been listening to on my iPod recently:
-Girls by the Beastie Boys: This song totally reminds me of college. I had to do a 15 minute documentary for an Intro to Film class, and I used this song over the title sequence – not surprisingly for those who read this blog, I decided to do my documentary on the differences between men and women. (Honestly, it’s just such an easy fallback topic when you can’t think of anything else…oops, I’ve said too much.)
-Three Little Birds by Bob Marley: Nothing gets you in the mood for good weather quite like Marley. I instantly feel like I’m in my bikini on a beach.
-Doin’ Time by Sublime: What would one of my lists be without a Sublime recommendation? This one is great – very mellow, yet I feel an insane urge to sing along whenever I hear it. “Summertime, and the living’s easy…”
-Fuel by Metallica: Just because I still don’t know how you wake up in the morning (no matter how nice it is outside) without Metallica.
-We Gotta Get Out of This Place by the Animals: This one is reserved specifically for just as I’m leaving work. So appropriate. Really puts a smile on my face.
-The Joker by the Steve Miller Band: Well fuck, this one’s just a flat-out good song. Who doesn’t like this one?
-Hot in the City by Billy Idol: Because starting around now, I’m going to be hot in the city. Might as well have my own personal theme music while I’m walking down the street.
-Low Rider by War: I think this is the Dazed and Confused factor – the moment I hear this song now I think of the last day of school, and that will ALWAYS mean summer to me.
-Paradise City by Guns ‘N Roses: While this song is great all year long, it does seem to get better as the weather heats up. (Note: Don’t trust anyone who doesn’t like Guns ‘N Roses – it’s not natural.)
-Everybody Wants You by Billy Squier: Not only is this one an awesome song, but it’s my own personal (internal) ego boost. EVERYONE should listen to this song EVERY day.
Alright, that’s enough for now - maybe more next week. What about everyone else? Any good music (that gets better in the summer) recommendations? I’ll try not to mock your choices.
