Thursday Thirteen #62: Music


New music I'm digging -- click on the links for the videos!

DON'T YOU EVAH by Spoon (Fun summer song.)

MERCY by Duffy (A can't-sit-still-while-listening-to-it-song. Used to promo the final few episodes of a couple programs this spring, including "Moonlight.")

I'M YOURS by Jason Mraz (Can't seem to get this catchy tune out of my head lately!)

VIOLET HILL by Cold Play

I WILL POSSESS YOUR HEART by Death Cab For Cutie (Or, as I often refer to it, The Stalker Song. Honestly, I love the infectious bass line and the catchy refrain of this song, but seriously -- have you listened to the lyrics? It sounds like a stalker's anthem!)

SWEET and LOW by Augustana

DREAM CATCH ME by Newton Faulkner

ALWAYS A FRIEND by Alejandro Escovedo (With Bruce Springsteen)

STAYING WITH ME by Los lonely Boys

FALLING IN LOVE AT A COFFEE SHOP by Landon Pigg (You may recognize this one from the "A Diamond is Forever" commercial.)

NEW SOUL by Yael Naim(Also used in a commercial, this one for Apple Macbook)

YOU CAN'T COUNT ON ME by Counting Crows

DIRTY CITY by Steve Winwood

BONUS:
LOVE IS FREE by Sheryl Crow (Wish I could have gone to this concert Wednesday night!)

WHERE DO I BEGIN by Idina Menzel (Performed at the National Memorial Day Concert in Washington, DC -- I Dare you to listen to it with dry eyes!)

Quite a variety you have going there.

Mine is here: http://aliceaudrey.wordpress.com/2008/06/04/thursday-thirteen-30-fimo-clay-beads/

Heather said...

Yup! Definitely an eclectic mix, but with the exception of Idina Menzel, they are all currently playing on my fave local radio station. It can be a little challenging getting any work done when you're singing along all day, too! *g*

Ms Menozzi said...

Wow, I don't think I've heard any of these... It's time to do some searching online, I think.

Happy TT!

Ciao!

Savannah Chase said...

Shelley Munro said...

Mercy and New Soul are really catchy and get under your skin. I like the new Cold Play song too. I have that one on my ipod.

Darla said...

Interesting mix, and several I hadn't heard before--thanks for introducing them to me!

Adelle said...

I'm going to have to check these out, the only one I'm familiar with is Sheryl Crow, and I LOVE her!
Thanks for the heads up.
Happy T13!

Debora Dennis said...

Oh yeah - some great tunes that I now can't get out of my head know! I love the Los Lonely Boys too!

Jennifer McKenzie said...

How funny. I just did thirteen YouTube videos I've favorited.
I have more now. LOL.
Great list.

December said...

GREAT Stuff!!

Tempest Knight said...

Hmm... I don't know any of these bands - except for Counting Crows. Scary, isn't it? I gotta check them out!

Jana said...

If I were into downloading songs from the 'net, I'd do it just to hear these. Maybe it's time I "get with the times" or whatever. hehehehe

And thanks. Now I have "New Soul" rattling around in my head. LOL

Heather said...

Ms Menozzi~ GMTA this week, eh? You probably know more on my list than I do yours though. *wink*

Savannah~ Thanks, I hope you find a few new ones you love!

Shelley~ Aren't they?! Once you get them into your head they're hard to get out. Much better than getting a song you don't like stuck in your head!

Darla~ You're welcome - and thank you for visiting and checking them out.

Adelle~ Have fun checking them out! I love Sheryl Crow too and so wish I could have gone to last night's concert. Love what I've heard of her new CD so far.

Heather said...

Debora~ Sorry! LOL - I am not responsible for any song stuck in someone's head, or the sudden urge to buy new music. *WEG*

Jennifer~ GMTA! Will definitely be checking yours out.

Thanks December!

Tempest~ S'okay - there have been a few diva music TTs where I've not recognized any of the artists either. All a matter of taste, I guess. *g*

Jana~ Mwahahaha... Sorry to put that song in your head. Seriously, though - if you view no others, at least check out the Idina Menzel. I think you'll love that one.

Paige Tyler said...

I've never heard of any of those! LOL!

*hugs*
Paige

My TT is at http://paigetylertheauthor.blogspot.com/

Heather said...

Paige~ Wow! Not even the three used in commercials? I hope you find one or two you like!

Ivette said...

Happy Thursday 13! Love the list and I going to have to check out those music videos when I have more time. Hope to see you at my 4th edition about Kerrelyn Sparks at Talk About My Favorite Authors blog.

Nina Pierce said...

I must admit, I'm not much of a music nut. I only heard about one of those songs before and only two of the artists. I'm such a music looser! ;)

Heather said...

Ivette~ Thank you. I hope you like the songs you check out!

Nina~ *Gasp* Not a music person?? I couldn't imagine life without music.
