Music I Love 2010

NOTE: This post was originally written in June of 2010. I am going to do an updated post just like this one soon.

So I love music and have over the years found some bands and artists that I just can’t stop listening too.

First up a discovery I made part by accident and part through watching The L Word on Showtime. Uh Huh Her is Camila Grey and Leisha Hailey. I stumbled upon the EP through Itunes recommended albums and fell in love with this song. The next album refined the song even greater and it made me fall in love with the band even more. Their first album Common Reaction held even more treasures such as Wait Another Day, Dance With Me and Not A Love Song. This band always puts me in a great mood and there isn’t a song they have that I don’t love. Check them out:

Another band I can always listen to is The Kooks. I don’t know much about this band other than the fact that I love their sound. I heard “Always Where I Need To Be” in a movie and tracked down the song and band and instantly became obsessed. I seem to be really into Brit Pop Rock these days. My Favorite Kooks song right now:

I also have really been into The Lostprophets for a long time. I don’t know much about the band except that they are from Wales, but I have all their music and really enjoy all their songs. They are one of the few rock bands that have progressed and grown in their sound a great deal from record to record. They have constantly stepped it up and with each new record their sound has melded and defined my rock tastes at that time. This is an older Lostprophets song, “Burn, Burn”:

I totally am in love with a few local bands from Springfield, Mo and St. Louis. Ludo is a St. Louis band that I have been into for a while. They have a ton of humor in their music and released an amazing rock opera that is so beautiful that if you listen from beginning to end, you will truly be moved. It’s about a man that loses his wife and builds a time machine to go save her and his misadventures along the way. Broken Bride…It’s amazing.

Some other bands that I have recently gotten into are Broken Bells, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Astro Surfer, 30 Seconds to Mars, Flogging Molly,

30 Day Song Challenge Day 1

I recently stumbled across this ’30 day song challenge’ at http://keelanfoley.wordpress.com/2012/04/05/30-day-song-challenge/and thought it seemed fairly interesting. I’m not sure about all the titles, but the majority of it seems its worth a go.

Day 01 – your favorite song

I would have to say that currently my favorite song is  “Disdain” by Uh Huh Her.

Song of the Day “Wake to Sleep” Uh Huh Her

Lyrics:

You leave so soon
Creature of habit
Clock strikes midnight
So long, fare well, good night

I take you with a grain of salt
We’re different but still the same soul
I chase you with your lights out
I look out but it’s not soon enough

Time’s up, sun’s down
Stuck here without a sound
I wake up and you’re sleeping
Keep dreaming, your light’s still out

~Clock strikes, midnight
So long

I wake to sleep and I
I wake to sleep and I
I wake to sleep and I
Dream to the right
Dream to the right
Dream a little dream

Song of the Day “Black and Blue” Uh Huh Her

Lyrics:

All my ways are covered, faded
But I will follow through
Anyone would tell you not to
But they’re just jaded

Carry me to another place
I don’t know which way to go
All my insides are black and blue
From killing you

I can feel another surge, we’re undercover
Take it to the next level, please don’t give it to another
All this time I’ve searched myself, tell me which way to go
But still your love is killing me, I’m black and blue

I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving chase the night away
I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving chase

I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving chase the night away
I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving this game

I took it all for granted darling
I’d do anything to take it away, take you away
Now this is the final hour, I’ll give you your key back to your heart
It’s for another

I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving chase the night away
I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving chase

I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving chase the night away
I’m loving chase baby
I’m loving this game

Brilliant post on my favorite band

Gypsy Death And You.

 

I wrote this about a week ago..maybe a bit longer? I lose track. Me and the concept of time just do not go together at all. I don’t own a watch. I just don’t like having to schedule stuff. Anyway, I wrote this little thing about Cam from Uh Huh Her. Except what I wanted to do was write about her as musician. Not as..well, anything but I guess. You know what happened? BAD SHIT HAPPENED. I was called various things and got some wonderfully shit messages from people who evidently took this the wrong way. You see, they failed to see that I was writing about a musician and just got mad possessive over an actress that USED to be in The L Word. Oh, and just so we’re clear- The L Word was a TV show. Shane was a fictional character, she doesn’t exist. You are not…

Song of the Day “Human Nature” Uh Huh Her

acoustic ON Air Streaming

Lyrics:

Your world is changed and over your head
You’re going crazy
And all the things that you realized you said
had taken toll
You stay the same but you look up ahead
theres something out there
This love is curse but reality is worse
without it planned

It seems like human nature
The way you stand up
Do you want to make love
Staring at the sea
And everything between
As you watch the world fall
As you watch the world fall

I think your name and you showed up to save me
this is crazy
At times when steep and I look in your eyes
And they are cold
You look so tough but at times you are wrong
Should I be scared now
Made up my mind of this something you hide
We’ll all stay with you

It seems like human nature
The way you stand up
Do you want to make love
Staring at the sea
And everything between
As you watch the world fall

Your world is changed and over your head
You’re going crazy
And all the things that you realized you said
had taken toll
You stay the same but you look up ahead
theres something out there
This love is curse but reality is worse
without it planned

It seems like human nature
The way you stand up
Do you want to make love
Staring at the sea
And everything between
As you watch the world fall
As you watch the world fall

I think your name and you showed up to save me
this is crazy
At times when steep and I look in your eyes
And they are cold
You look so tough but at times you are wrong
Should I be scared now
Made up my mind of this something you hide
We’ll all stay with you

It seems like human nature
The way you stand up
Do you want to make love
Staring at the sea
And everything between
As you watch the world fall
As you watch the world fall

Song of the Day “One Day” Morgan Page

I found this song by chance and fell instantly in love with it. The main reason is that the lead singer of my favorite band, Uh Huh Her, is the singer, but the other reason is that it is a hauntingly beautiful electronic song. I had this on repeat for many weeks. I hope you enjoy today’s song being a little more relaxed and mellow, but it still deserves to be turned up.

“One Day”

Lyrics:

You’re covered in dust,
the rest of your life said
you wanna let go
but you cant even manage,
Hush, appreciate time
you’re locked to the ground but you’re scared
you like to run
certainty follows
you.
Uh uh uh

Chorus
In a daze in the pouring rain i’ll wait,
one day you come and shake me
i can appreciate the ?(ride) that you gave me. (repeat x 2)

Uh uh uh

where do you draw the line,
today i can let go ,
i keep my head up
i just keep on hanging on
one day is not so much
next day you fall in love
my hands are tied you just keep on hanging on

Uh uh uh
