What I’m listening to right now:
“Fireflies” by Owl City
Val has Shazzam on her phone, so she decided to download a bunch of songs she had stored. One was this song and I heard it while she was showering (she was playing it on the Bose speaker in the bathroom). I asked her who it was and realized Tamara had quoted it on Twitter earlier that day… so I downloaded it and then began incessantly playing it over and over and OVER and over. I have an obsessive personality, you could say… I feel a testament to finding a truly good song is being able to play it 1,000 times in a row and still being able to listen to it throughout the week without getting sick of it. Therefore this song is AMAZING so download it stat. Owl City is coming to the Troubadour on 10/20 and it’s sold out, however if there is a will there is a way and I plan on going. Hearing this song is person would personify euphoria for me.
“Gold Digger” by the Glee Cast
SOME people (Val) dislike Glee, having not watched it at all. However it’s going to take the world by storm soon and those people we be upset that they did not appreciate all of it’s glory. They just did their own gleed-up version of Kanye’s “Gold Digger” and I’m LOVING IT! Get ready for the show to premiere on Wednesday, September 9th.
“Whatcha Say” by Jason DeRulo
Okay. I admit, I was slightly peeved that this Jason DeRulo character decided to turn this song, originally by Imogen Heap, into some hoed up R&B spectacle. However it’s kind of grown on me because I love anything Imogen Heap does, even if it means being turned into a chorus for some kind of rap diddy. Plus the SNL Digital Short version of this song (look up “Dear Sister”) keeps me laughing for hours.
