Well, shit. It’s nearly Winter and I have not put up the music I spent my Fall with.
Please forgive me. Here it is. Enjoy!
Victorious | Panic! at the Disco
I need to come clean. I secretly love orchestral rock. The loud drums and heavy bass. The soaring layers of voice and instrument. Queen. Some David Bowie. Tia Carrere’s “Ballroom Blitz.” Especially for Panic! at the Disco, their verbal gymnastics turn. me. on. [Their lead singer is also highly lickable.] If orchestral rock were embodied in a human male, I would vibrate so intensely in his presence it would be hard to keep my clothes on. Imagining myself dancing at a concert with all this loudness? Total turn on.
So, there you go. Owning my turn on.
Levels | Nick Jonas
I know. How could I with Nick Jonas? Here’s why I love this song: after 18 years of marriage we keep ‘getting higher’ by going deeper with our intimacy. It’s juicy and addicting – just like this song.
Got You (Where I Want You) | The Flys
The lead singer on this one reminds me of early Chris Cornell. This could have been on the Singles soundtrack, and that is everything to me. Plus, so awkward trying to connect, right? But this will always get me:
I think you’re smart/
You sweet thing
I Am | AWOLNATION
I used to get frustrated with people who wanted to change but wouldn’t, until I heard this song. All of these things made us who we are- and that is hard to let go of. Changing our identity is a tough choice. I have more compassion because of this song.
Where Are U Now | Pentatonix
I have always loved a good a cappella group. Started with The Nylons (my first ‘I paid for the ticket’ concert), The Manhattan Transfer, then Sonos, and now Pentatonix. They did Justin Beiber a favor covering this.
City | Sarah Bareilles
Because sometimes I needed a good song to cry to this Fall.
Hallelujah | Panic! at the Disco
Because of these lines:
All you sinners, stand up/
Show praise with your body, stand up/
Yes, I am a sinner- gladly so.
And yes, I will show praise with my body.
Calling All Angels | Train
Callin’ all you angels. Because you are, and because we need each other. We are angels for each other, always.
Walk on the Lake | Axiom of Choice
This is the perfect song to sit and watch the rain with. The album is lovely, as well. Perfect for a slow Fall day.
