Listening Lately

These may be a bit slow for a Monday morning, but hopefully they’ll be a peaceful, gentle start to your week. Fair warning — some of them are lovey-dovey.

This duet between Michael Buble and Laura Pausini — siiiiigh.

This one has been popping up on one of my Spotify stations a lot and it’s grown on me. Catchy and sweet. Some of the lyrics are particularly nice.

She shows me everything she used to know,
Picture frames and country roads,
When the days were long and the world was small.
She stood by as it fell apart,
Separate rooms and broken hearts,
But I won’t be the one to let you go.

It really only takes a line or two for me to fall in love with a song.

If you watched my hair tutorial from yesterday you’ll recognize this song. “Dear Someone” by Red Molly (who I featured last time). I love their pure harmonies and “Dear Someone” is such a beautiful song. It’s like a wish and a prayer.

I love this performance of “The Luckiest” by Ben Folds with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra. How can you not smile (or cry) listening to this?

What if I’d been born fifty years before you
In a house on a street where you lived?
Maybe I’d be outside as you passed on your bike
Would I know?
And in a wide sea of eyes
I see one pair that I recognize
And I know

Am I the only person who has a difficult time not weeping when they hear “Desperado”? It’s a struggle for me. There’s so much emotion here…and who can’t identify with it in some way? Tori makes it come alive in a heartbreaking way.

Finally, “Emotional Connections” by Clint Mansell from the soundtrack to Last Night.

Hope you all have a lovely Monday, wherever you are. It’s our last week of school with students in the building and that makes for an exciting week. Enjoy yours, my friend.

  1. The Luckiest has been a favorite song since high school. Makes me sigh and wish 😉 So beautiful.

    I had not heard of Red Molly… fabulous harmonies.

    It’s always fun for me to hear what others have been listening too lately. You find such great music that way. 🙂
