Picks Of The Week

Posted October 30, 2011 By admin

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. Recently, I went through and totally upgraded my music library to a different format, so I was adding a few hundred songs a week making it difficult to add much new music at the same time. But, I am happy to say I am going to continue these posts from here on out every Sunday. If you aren’t familiar with what I mean by picks of the week, I will explain. I have amassed a collection of about 2000 cds, and honestly a lot of them I have never listened to. I decided to start at the beginning of my collection and listen to them one by one until I have gone through them all. I rip whatever songs I like onto my computer, and I’ll take what I feel are some of the best songs I’ve found each week and post them here. Hopefully it will expose you to some new music, or find an old favorite you had forgotten about. Either way, it’s just my way of sharing some music I’ve found interesting each week. You can find past Picks of The Week segments by either clicking on the tag below or scrolling through the tags on the right sidebar to “Picks Of The Week”. Or click here.

  • Sundress- Ben Kweller
  • Atlantic City- Benjamin Francis Leftwich
  • Katie Cruel- Bert Jansch (ft. Beth Orton & Devendra Banhart)
  • Chantilly Lace- The Big Bopper
  • Summertime- Big Brother & The Holding Company
  • Thirteen- Big Star
  • Grandma’s Hand- Bill Withers
  • Strange Fruit- Billie Holiday
  • Moonshiner- Bob Dylan
  • How Many Times Have You Broken My Heart- Norah Jones
  • New York, New York (Piano Version)- Ryan Adams
  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- She & Him

Merry Christmas

Posted December 25, 2010 By admin

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everybody is staying safe and warm. Our family exchanged presents and had dinner earlier today and it just reminds me how thankful I am for everything I have. I come from a big family (9 brothers and sisters), so there is never a dull moment here. Well, anyways, since this is mainly a music blog, here are some great Christmas songs I’ve been digging lately, including my favorite Christmas song ever, “Christmastime Is Here“. Hope everyone is doing good, I’m about to head back to watching A Christmas Story for the 6th time this Christmas!

  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- She & Him (ft. Conan O’Brien on guitar)
  • Santa Papi- Maria Isa
  • Christmas Day- Dido
  • Silent Night- Sixpence None The Richer
  • Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas- Judy Garland
