Song of the day: “Kiss Me Slowly”

“Stay with me / baby stay with me tonight / don’t leave me alone.”

New Parachute track released, album soon to follow

Finally!

A new song (not to mention music video) from Parachute’s new album, “The Way It Was,” set for release in April 2011.

Check out “Something To Believe In” here:

At first listen, I wasn’t too impressed and was worried that this album wouldn’t be able to measure up to their 2009 debut, “Losing Sleep.” I’m glad I gave the song another shot, because the second listen changed my mind. It’s no “She Is Love,” but by the sounds of “Something To Believe In,” I don’t think Parachute is going to disappoint.

 

Artist of the Day: Ryan Adams

Track: “Two”

This is perhaps Mr. Mandy Moore’s most famous song, and for good reason. It’s simply delightful.

“When The Stars Go Blue” is also another personal favorite of mine.

Will Anderson of Parachute just posted the following cover of the aforementioned song on the band’s YouTube page. Not as good as the original, but I’m partial to anything Parachute. Always.

Flashback: Meeting Parachute

After using WordPress for nearly a year and a half, I have JUST learned how to insert a picture slideshow.

Kind of embarrassing that it took me this long, but better late than never, right?

Anyways, I decided to take a trip down memory lane and test out my newfound knowledge with some of my pictures from the Parachute show last fall.

I feel like 99 of my posts are about this band, so if you haven’t caught on by now, they are amazing.

While you’re at it, make your day a little better by watching “She Is Love”:

Start off December with “Winterlove”

I tend to tune out any Christmas music I hear before Thanksgiving, but since tomorrow is Dec. 1, bring on the carols!

If you’re looking for some unusual Christmas music (i.e. a break from the overplayed, yet classic “The Christmas Song” and “Let It Snow!”), I will be bringing you at least one offbeat, festive holiday song every week for the month of December.

My first choice is one of my (new) personal favorites and was just released during October of this year.

The song is “Winterlove” by Parachute.

Listen to it here and be sure to check back every week for a new holiday song!!

“Spring goes by so slowly/Summer can’t come fast enough/Fall can leave me lonely/Just bring me back my winterlove.”

Parachute: shot and chopped by yours truly

It may have taken a while, but I have FINALLY compiled my Parachute footage/pictures into a video. Better late than never, right?

In case you missed my earlier post, I met the band Parachute in late September. They played an acoustic show/had a meet-and-greet at Borders in Birmingham, which is where the majority of this footage is from.

The rest is from the same night, in Pontiac, when they played with Secondhand Serenade, The Rust and Evan Taubenfeld for the “Secondhand High Tour.”

My Best Weekend Ever

This past Saturday was basically the best day of my entire life.  Why, you ask?  Allow me to share with you.

I have been a die-hard Parachute fan ever since I heard their first single, “She Is Love,” nearly a year ago, and I have posted about them approximately 238 times on here already.

On Saturday, I not only got to see the band perform a live acoustic set, but I got to MEET them as well when they visited Borders in Birmingham, MI.

After meeting the band, my friends and I followed them to Pontiac for their second concert of the day.
