I say folk, but I’m sure someone will correct me, but it’s close. I guess in a perfect world we’d have a better term for folk/rock/pop/blues-ish music…
However, in a perfect world, my mom would have realized that I was a massively mature 16 year old who deserved to go to Lilth Fair and Austin is NOT too far for me to go for a concert…. But it’s not perfect, is it, mom? IS IT?!?
But I’m fine. It’s fine…I’m over it. It’s fine….*sniff*
Train Song – Mindy Smith
I get the feeling that when he gets off that damn train, she’s gonna stab his a**.
The Chain – Ingrid Michaelson
Who doesn’t love a good round? It’s like being at a very sad Girl Scout camp. (Also, this is live. Now you’re more impressed…)
Does He Love You? – Rilo Kiley
The sweeping violins, melancholy lyrics and a shocking twist…it’s like a hipster opera!
The Wind – Amos Lee
True story**: I had Amos Lee’s “Sweet Pea” as the song on my MySpace page when Jethro first cyber-stalked me before we started dating. He’d just heard Lee do a PBS special late one night like the week before, so it had to be fate. My taste in music just added fuel to the fire in his heart started by my snappy wit and big boobies.
Second true story: We saw him play at a venue a friend of mine works at and apparently he’s a dick when things go wrong. Sad Face…
What Can I Say – Brandie Carlile
I heart Brandi Carlile. I had this CD on repeat on a REALLY long drive to Florida with a friend. He HATED it, but by the end know all the words to every song…
Also, this is a Grey’s Anatomy fan video. Remind me to talk to y’all about my friends Amanda, Amber and I and the summer of the Buffy fan videos. It was a problem…
Moses – Patty Griffin
I could do an entire post on Patty Griffin and how much I love her and want her to write beautiful songs forever and ever amen.
Except it would just be me gushing for paragraph after paragraph and then posting every single song she’s ever written. So how about you guys just admit she’s amazing and save me the trouble, okay? Okay.
Glad we got that settled.
Angel from Montgomery – Bonnie Raitt
This is my favorite song of all time. I can’t find the live version with John Prine that I love, but this one is worth it for how adorable and young Bonnie Raitt is.
**Anyone else always hear the country singer from Real World: L.A. singing “Trruuee Sttoorrryyyy!!!” whenever someone says this? The FIRST Real World: L.A.? No? Is it just me? Did I just date myself again?? DAMMIT…
