Last week’s iTunes free single was a little jam called “Bleeding Out” from The Lone Bellow. I immediately became a fan. And listened to that song a good 50 times before I just decided to buy the album.
Every song is loop-worthy, but I’ve found my current repeat: “You’ll Never Need Nobody.” Shockingly, this one does have an accordion (I just cannot get enough of those) and I find the rhythm of the song to just be the perfect winter companion. And those lyrics? Game over.
I’m plugged in when I’m at my desk. Earbuds in, music to the two level and I’m rockin’ all afternoon. But lately I feel like I’ve become plugged out of my working life. I thought the world was over when my iPod died 2 years ago and that I would never be able to stomach a commute or walk down the street without listening to music. But I’ve survived. In fact, I welcome the city’s sounds to act as my music while getting from Point A to Point B.
So I’ve started having “No Headphones Thursdays” where I don’t wear headphones, all thanks to an article I read last week on Thought Catalog. I can still listen to music, but it has to be through my speakers, so it’s not all-encompassing my surroundings that I can’t hear my phone ring. And it was going well until this song came through, because all I want to do now is put on headphones, play this on loop and have myself a little dance party.
Youngblood Hawke— We Come Running
All last week, I had this song on repeat.
Looks like this week doesn’t show signs of changing up.
And no, I still don’t want to buy a Chevy Sonic.
