Jolene told me I need to stop sitting on these things and instead to get around to posting them so she has new music to hear. So here you go.
The Words – Christina Perri
Okay, this one. It’s got “words” in the title and that’s probably what grabbed me, but I stuck around for the dreary weather and the guy growing orchids and chopping wood. Then I got really scared that this was a dead girlfriend song and I kept praying it wasn’t and what I’m saying is please stick around because it’s NOT a dead girlfriend song. It’s better. And that part where she steps into the tub with her jeans on? I want to write a story about that.
You & I (Forever) – Jessie Ware
Deborah’s Theme (from Once Upon A Time In America) – Ennio Morricone
I love everything this man does, this is just the song of his I’m listening to at the moment.
The instrumental is gorgeous. Nothing more needs to happen with it. But then Alan and Marilyn Bergman come along and write poetry for lyrics, as they tend to do.
Here’s the Celine Dion version if you aren’t opposed to things like that.
Wherever I Go – Mark Knopfler featuring Ruth Moody
Five Hundred Miles – Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, Stark Sands
500 Miles from Sunshine On Leith
I found this because I was looking for the other 500 Miles song in this post. I can’t believe I didn’t know this musical existed until today. And the thing the girls were dancing on? That’s where I was sitting when I took this photo.
