Music I'm Listening To These Days.

So...indulge me a bit here. I know this is an advertising blog and I know blogs should stay on message.

But it's Friday. I want to have some fun & I'm repurposing a list from a response I provided to another blog where the author asked what 7 songs you were listening to right now. Here are mine (8). Singles for the most part...but also love the records they're from.

Radiohead: "Creep": Back on the British charts again with the Greatest Hits release. Great slashing guitar. And then...there's the lead singer (YouTube 1994 version).

Coldplay: "Viva La Vida" (the song): Infectious. A Brian Eno production at its best.

Arcade Fire: "(Antichrist Television Blues)": a fabulous Odyssey. Watch it on YouTube (Glastonbury).

Arcade Fire: "Intervention": THE late 2000's protest song: YouTube: Glastonbury.

Amy Macdonald: "Let's Start a Band": Only available in the UK. Terrific folkie who is 20. Find it on YouTube along with a lot of other songs...most live.

Sia: "Day Too Soon" Famous for singing the song behind the final scene of "Six Feet Under." A Gumby voice that contorts into amazing sounds.

My Morning Jacket "Evil Urges": Whole new record. Great wide ranging work. Challenging.

U2: "Love is Blindness" Always listening to this. One of my absolute favorite songs. Live is best for the searing Edge guitar solo (see the Zoo TV Sydney Show above).

OK, I've listened to a few of these (have to parcel out my exposure to new music over time -- wouldn't want to get music overload ;) ) and I really like Arcade Fire, especially "Antichrist Television Blues."

I'm looking forward to hearing more from this list.

HI Jennifer:

Thanks for visiting and for listening to some of these. And YES. Arcade Fire's "Antichrist Television Blues" is a great song. It's weighing in at 47 listens so far on my itunes chart. Look at the lyrics sometime...they're surprising. And the instrumentation is so varied.

If you listen to anything else come back for another visit and issue a report.
