It’s like taking a trip down memory lane. I am amazed at the power of music. How it can trigger a certain memory, person, place, feeling, familiarity and period of time. Putting my ipod on shuffle, without surprisingly skipping every second song and hearing that each one was from my mid-teens. Back in the day, even though back in the day was about five years ago, when physical albums were more used and my stereo player didn’t feel so lonely.
The Killers – Everything Will Be Alright
The Hot Fuss album was given to me by a high school friend, who let me borrow it. This one has ultimately stayed by me through the tough times and soaking in the tambourine – It’s comforting. I’ve never had the sudden impulse to want to learn the electric guitar. Although, of course at the time my acoustic self would of gladly stood at the side line to admire the beautiful instrument.
Norah Jones – Chasing Pirates
Norah has the most sweeter than honey voice. I fell in love with the way she sang when she played the piano. The way she embraced Jazz, it was so personal, you felt like she was singing right beside you. Her songs make me feel like there is not a worry in the world, even if it’s the song Cold Cold Heart, she makes it magical.
Death Cab For Cutie – A Lack Of Colour
A long with Transatlanticism and We Looked Like Giants, Lack of Colour is soothing with the guitar and the keys playing in the beginning. I was introduced by my sister to many bands from Arctic Monkey, The Kooks to Greenday, where my Classical mind may of never discovered them.
