Hard to believe it’s already the middle of October – I really need to learn the art of not blinking. This weekend went by in a blur it was so busy – but at least I did get the three batches of wine started that I want to make sure are bottled before Christmas. Now to focus on all the other stuff I need to get done before Christmas – I suspect time will fly by in a blur between now and then.
For now, since it’s Monday, I’ll procrastinate one more day and sit back and enjoy some music instead. It’s a freebie week this week, and I’m in an eclectic listening mood, so feel free to join me.
Let’s start off with an artists whose new album was just released last month. The lyric and song ideas are ones she’s been collecting over the years and are inspired by Robyn, The Cars, Madonna, and James Taylor. Here’s Carly Rae Jepsen with “This Kiss”:
In case you wanted to listen to it with better sound, here you go:
Next up is a duo who followed me on Twitter last week, which subsequently had me checking out their music and loving it, naturally. From their website:
“Kimmy and Kelsie Baron (aka The Baron Sisters) are a sibling duo from South Florida that have mastered the ability to create the organic sound of innocence and youth through the eyes of old souls.”
Their CD was released earlier this month – I enjoyed their first video and I’m sure you will, too. Here’s The Baron Sisters with “Positive Thinker”:
Next up is someone who stopped following me on Twitter since I didn’t know she was following me and I didn’t follow her back (but of course now I’m following her, because I checked out her music and love it, too). She’s been opening for Gretchen Wilson on tour recently, here’s Brinn Black with “Not That Girl”:
Next up is an artist I like to listen to when I need to really get moving – though some of his songs can be a little iffy for the younger set (this one included with it’s innuendo). But it’s definitely a song that’s catchy, and hard to get out of your head – here’s Flo Rida with “Whistle”:
Last but not least, the next song is one I heard on Parenthood last week and had to hunt it down. Not only is the song very catchy, but the video is really cool, using choreography from jump ropers, cheerleaders, gymnasts and even the New York City Ballet. They don’t forget their heartfelt roots, though – they insert shots of the parents and coaches who support the performers.
Filmed on location in New York City, give a listen to Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros with “Man On Fire”:
Wanna come dance with me? Have a great Monday.
Now on to the particulars of Monday’s Music Move’s Me:
