Music, cha cha cha

It’s been some time since I shared a playlist, mostly because it’s been a long time since I’ve been inspired by music in general or a new band in particular. But over the holidays, I’ve been listening more closely, paying attention to band names (The War on Drugs, love), talking to people about songs (Murder on the Dance Floor, awesome) and shows (Nada Surf, taking on Europe bientot), and sort of loving my iTunes library again.

Dog Days Are Over
– Florence and the Machine
Brothers – The War on Drugs
Nova Heart – The Spoons
Murder on the Dance Floor – Sophie Ellis Bexter
Urgent – Foreigner
This Must Be the Place – Talking Heads

  1. This is exactly what I needed -- going to start listening at work now!

  2. Oh my gosh--Murder on the Dance Floor--a favorite of mine that you totally just reconnected me with. So glad you shared this list or I would have forgotten all about this classic! Listening to it right now :-)

  3. Ha! I love that a copywriter has a band called Cut Copy on her playlist.

  4. Nice one Amy. Maybe you already know Youth Lagoon -dreamy, melancholic, beautiful music.
