Summer playlists. I listen to audiobooks in the car most of the year, but in the summer, it’s all about the music for motoring around the city. Fun music that makes me sing along and bounce around and drive in a way that’s inevitably going to result in a speeding ticket.
Woman Woman by AWOLNATION
My favourite song on the new album.
I know I usually do these music things on Fridays, but my schedule has been fairly intense lately, and time has not been found to do any lists. So today, I’m taking this foreshortened Sunday to make a list.
Earlier this week, a friend introduced me to a cover of a song by his favourite band. I really love this cover. It’s stuck with me through the week. And it got me thinking about covers and how, when done well, they become more of an interpretation than a cover and can shift the song’s perspective. So this week’s list is all about covers.
Don’t Sell Me Short – Emily Davis (Bad Religion) – the aforementioned song
I’ve done this before. Songs I’m particularly fond of this week. Enjoy.
Downtown by Macklemore and a ton of other people
It is impossible for me to be unhappy when listening to this song.
