I’m usually a very decisive person (HA!, yeah right) so the fact that I couldn’t pick just one song for my first question shouldn’t be a surprise. I put a positive spin on it and decided that instead of hemming and hawing, I’d just take the opportunity to share not one, but three, awesome songs with you all.
The first is “What The Water Gave Me” off Florence + The Machine’s new album, “Ceremonials,” which was just released on Halloween. Florence Welch’s voice is like liquid gold, and her fiery red tresses would make even Ariel jealous. I know I am.
Song number two is “Punching In a Dream” by The Naked and Famous, an indie band from New Zealand. Just watch the video, it will make complete sense.
Not to be cliche, but I saved the best for last. As someone who was obsessed with Mumford & Sons as soon as their debut album dropped in February 2010 (long before they played the Grammys with Dylan, ahem), I obviously let out a fangirl squeal when I heard their new song today. “Ghosts” or “Ghosts That We Knew” (apparently they haven’t quite nailed down the title yet) will be featured on the band’s new album, which will be released in the next few months. The sooner the better, I say, because this band is proof that good music still exists. Click play, get goosebumps, fall into a trance, repeat. Click here to give it a listen.
Check back in the next few days for challenge number two: the song that was number one when yours truly was born (waaaaay back in the ’90s).
