magical music monday.

i love music.  i love good music.  i love bad music.  i love when it makes me laugh and i love when it makes me cry.  and today was one of those magical music days.


so it started out with john mayer.  i've never been a big john "look at my O face" mayer fan, but today his song Say came on during my drive to work and it just hit home.





so then, as i was nearly in tears, i switched radio stations and immediately broke out into the biggest grin.  why?  phil freakin' collins and genesis.  





are you jamming with me yet?!  and with that i'm ready to tackle monday at the office!  i flip on pandora - which i've recently discovered is not blocked by the firm's firewall.  my station of choice lately has been edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros.


now, like i said, i love music.  and there is nothing more frustrating than a song being stuck in your head and not knowing what it is.  well, my friends, last summer i heard this funky song and i was obsessed with it.  except for the fact i knew one line and for the life of me, couldn't find the song with google.  fail.  so for a year now, the song would drift in and out of my head at the most random times.  


so, i'm plugging away at work when all of a sudden a song catches my attention.  could it be?  is it she?  yes, yes, yes....the song that has been haunting me for a year was playing!!!  and i'm sure everyone knows this song, and could have told me what it was in two seconds.  but i feel so victorious today, and no one can take that away from me!


so here it is:  Walking on a Dream by Empire of the Sun (link to actual video)



this song will forever remind me of tonka on the perfect summer night - dancing with friends as the boat flies across the water.  bliss.


happy monday!!

love.

yes, i'm watching the bachelorette.  ugh.  but great words of wisdom from one of the guys' family motto:


love is the only reality.

I saw Ingrid Michaelson this weekend at Basilica Block Party - one of the coolest outdoor concerts of the year.  The show bills itself as the party of a higher order.  You literally party right on the church grounds.  





The weather was amazing and the people were fabulous.  But Ingrid rocked my world.  Every song is better than the last.  I had goosebumps for about three minutes straight when she announced that two people both emailed her to say they wanted to propose to each other at her concert.  Normally, I despise public proposals.  But since this couple was completely in sync with each other and you knew the answer it was perfect.  And then Ingrid launched into The Way I Am.


And I can't get this song out of my head.  L.O.V.E. it.





YOU AND I

Written by Ingrid Michaelson

Don't you worry there my honey
We might not have any money
But we've got our love to pay the bills

Maybe I think you're cute and funny
Maybe I wanna do what bunnies do with you if you know what I mean

Oh lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
Lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance
Lets get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I

Well you might be a bit confused
And you might be a little bit bruised
But baby how we spoon like no one else
So I will help you read those books
If you will soothe my worried looks
And we will put the lonesome on the shelf

Lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
Lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance
Lets get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I

Lets get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France
Lets get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance
Lets get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I



Thank you, Ingrid!
