I’ve been listening to covers of songs I like by artists I like… also songs I don’t like made freaking awesome by people I like.

This song is so sweet. It just makes me feel happy.

Less of a goal, more of a hobby so I’m not exactly sure when I can mark this as done. I downloaded everything on iTunes by Hot Chip the other day on a complete whim as I’ve only heard of one of their songs before. But I liked that song and I’ve heard good words about their latest album so I thought “why not?”
In other news, MMX brought out a new song, “Stay”, the other day and I cannot stop listening! They bring out their debut EP on Sunday and I’m so excited for that and travelling to London to see them on the 12th. It’s going to blow me away, I can tell. 10 months ago
I’m aware of how vague this sounds…
What I really mean to do with this is go on the similar artists section of last.fm more, use the genius bar in iTunes, and buy whole albums instead of the odd song here and there. 10 months ago
I have fallen in love with the Soul Rebels. My favorite song is “Sweet Dreams” which is a cover of the Eurythmics’ version. The band members are good musicians but they are not amazing. Their passion, emotion and love of music is evident and that is what is so appealing to me. 11 months ago
I love my music, but I need to get some new stuff into the mix. If I don’t I’ll burn out on what I’ve got. 11 months ago

I got a Samsung android phone that can download music easily – bought a credit package from Vodaphone for 25 tracks per month and I’m loving it – I love walking the dog in all weathers – never mind waiting or being stuck in traffic – music is my escape and my therapy and it’s fun to share with my daughter – she adds tracks she likes and I (believe it or not) like listening to them. I feel this is so worth doing and when you are busy and always rushing about – there is never enough time for the nice things 12 months ago
