Songs, songs, songs.

This is a fun one!  Songs I listen to when I am happy, sad, bored, hyped, and mad.....

White Sky-Vampire Weekend  Vampire Weekend is my favorite band, and I've seen them twice in concert.  Let me tell you, though, for this band, twice is not enough.  They are so charismatic and talented and perfect and handsome.....I just want to follow them around the world.  ANYWAY, this song has that perfect summer, last-day of school, bought a new dress, got an excellent grade, went to the movies-vibe and I always listen to it when I'm on top of the world. 

It'll All Work Out- Tom Petty
This is a classic.  His sad, slow lyrics and the wonderful melody are perfect for me when I'm feeling overwhelmed or stressed or just sad.  If Tom P. tells me it's all gonna work out, then dang it, I'll believe him!

I always listen to old jazz music when I'm bored, or when I'm writing.  You can't go wrong with Sinatra, but I love Nat King Cole and Etta James.  

You Sleep Alone- HelloGoodbye
Fast, funny, fun to sing along's a good one to listen/dance to when you need to get out of your chair.  It was either this or Friday I'm In Love, by The Cure.  I don't know.  This is a weird category.

Next Girl- The Black Keys
All of The Black Keys' songs have that badass vibe that's perfect for blasting when you're angry at someone, but this one fit the fury bill just right.  After all, he's singing about how his next girlfriend won't be anything like the one he just dropped, since she was a mistake...I think he's kind of mad. 

And for those of you just joining me, here's what I'm talking about:

30 Days of Blogging
