Several people have been asking me lately for some songs that would make a good lullaby CD, and while most of these songs would and could play nicely on a CD of lullaby's; I am feeling much more in the mood to share with you the lyrical wine I have been having with my plate of winter.
So, if you have a minute or ninety, listen to these songs, I think you'll like them...even if there isn't two feet of snow on the ground where you are.
*Ummmm...All I have to say about this is, in my fantasies where I'm a real cool chick and play in a band, THIS is that band.
*This song plays kinda like my moods most days lately: Slow and sad, and then uptempo for awhile.
* I've said it before and I'll say it again. I've never heard a song from these guys that I didn't like...including this one. And I know that it's not from the band, but how bout that picture on the video? That looks like my own personal slice of heaven right now.
*This song makes me feel like a young girl falling in love again, and Oooo boy, I could just eat his voice on toast.
* Sorry about the Letterman intro, but honestly, this was the best quality video of this song I could find. it's worth the listen.
*I first discovered this song on an Itunes playlist someone had made entitled "The Soundtrack To My Life" I loved that...AND this song.
*Here is another song that demonstrates that switch from slow to fast pace but in reverse.
*And here is where the sun begins threatening to burst through the clouds and, if only for a second, my spirits lift. Enter: When In Rome.
* Just the sound of the birds singing in the first half of this song is enough to make me hug strangers for a whole week on the metro.
* And then there's Annie. When I'm faced with a day that's gray and lonely, I just pick up my chin and grin and say...The sun will come out tomorrow
