This semester I’m taking choir as an ensemble, it fit so neatly into my schedule that I couldn’t say no. I’ve really missed singing. We’re singing this song that’s in Spanish and while I’ve said the word for music plenty of times, it just sounds weird to have a choir full of non-Spanish speakers carefully singing, “Moo-see-ka”.
Anyways, I realized it’s been a while since I put various and sundry youtube links up here. No classical today, but just things I’m into lately. Here we go.
I am in love with The National, I tell you. Some people don’t dig a baritone, but oh. He is my cup of tea. This song, off their older album Boxer is my favorite (and I love the video. How perfectly does it capture that awkward high school reunion/wedding feel.)
p.s. In case you liked them too, I love “Sorrow” and “England” from their High Violet album.
Next up, this song by The Morning Benders makes me feel better that there are other geeks out there like me who would get all their friends together to play and sing, just for the heck of it (and this is so something my family would do).
And lastly, in the chill department comes an offering from my favorite Norwegians, The Kings of Convenience: Mrs. Cold (You’ll have to click through for this one, for some reason it won’t let me embed.) Sounds like good weekend background music to me.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend. Tell me, what are you listening to? Old, new or otherwise?
