Dreaming With A Broken Heart

This song has been in my head since I posted the Mia Michaels routine yesterday. I love this song, the piano, his voice, everything. I know John Mayer is a dick (re: Taylor Swift’s song ‘Dear John,’ ouch) but he makes some beautiful music. He is everyone’s guilty pleasure music, or regular music, if you […]

Vacation!

I am currently home for a vacation this week so posts will be light. It’s so nice being away from Halifax, and work, and being able to do nothing but lay by the pool. I’m going to try to put up some posts but I cannot guarantee anything. So with that I’m going to leave […]

Song of the Day – Oh Boy

The Buddy Holly tribute album, cleaverly titled ‘Rave On Buddy Holly,’ gives incredible performances by an array of musicians. “Oh Boy,” performed by the adorable She & Him, is a sweet 60s feeling tune. It was written by Sonny West and Bill Tilghman, and co-composed by Norman Petty. The She & Him version is much […]

Song Of The Day – Gravity (Sunday Music Mix)

And we are back to the rain. For this sad weather I felt a good swell was in order. Gravity is a song by Sara Bareilles from her debut major-label album Little Voice. As powerful as the original song is I cannot listen to it anymore. This version takes the song above and beyond. The […]

Song Of The Day – Till There Was You

I went to class this morning and it was a little cold and slightly overcast. When I left three hours later it was shorts and tank weather. Beautiful! Now my project is finding all my summer music and making a epic playlist. “Till There Was You” has slowly moved up to become one of my […]

Song Of The Day – Say It Ain’t So

“Say It Ain’t So” is a song by the rock band Weezer. The song was a single off their debut album ‘Blue.’ I never realized how old this song was and it makes me feel really old. This is one of their best songs and was named the 10th of 200 best songs of the […]

Song Of The Day – 24

“24” is a song by singer/songwriter Jemma Griffiths off her debut album Finally Woken. Jem has a really cool style and even though she only has two albums they are both very interesting. Jem was doing what Florence and the Machine is doing now. Their styles are very similar and very cool. If you like […]

Song Of The Day – Honey

“Honey” is a song by the now defunct band The Hush Sound. It is from their last album Goodbye Blues. This album is by far their best. Greta Salpeters voice improved expenentially and this album shows her off. This song is sassy and has a blues/jazz edge to it. Credit to

Song Of The Day – Bang Bang Bang

‘Bang Bang Bang’ is a song off Christina Perri’s new album Lovestrong. This album is amazing and this song was the first to really jump out at me. The song was also included in her live studio EP Ocean Way Sessions which is the version included. Perri has a really cool voice and this song […]

Song Of The Day – Rose Garden

Rose Garden is a song by Juno winner Shad. Shad is the best representation of Canadian hip-hop and it’s sad that he has not gotten as much press as Drake. Especially since Drake is a horrible rapper. Thanks mainstream media! Credit to thefacultyof I recently got the opportunity to see Shad in concert and he was […]

Song Of The Day – Grenade

This post might be quite misleading. While Bruno Mars‘ Grenade is the song of the day, this post is really a rant in how disappointed I am with his music. If you are a fan of his and stumbled upon this move straight on to the video. Credit to ElektraRecords Bruno Mars has a really cool […]

Song Of The Day – I’ve Got This Friend

My roommate brought home the Rolling Stone with Adele on the cover a couple days ago, not only was the Adele story amazing but there were recommendations by other singers/bands. One that caught my eye was by Taylor Swift and her recommendation was Civil Wars, which is comprised of Joy Williams and John Paul White. “I’ve […]

Song Of The Day – Hotel Song

As I am currently on a overnight at work the SOTD will be something upbeat and cheerful. This is the only way to describe Regina Spektor. Hotel Song, off her 2006 album Begin To Hope, was the first song I heard by her and was instantly in love. She creates these really unusual beats and […]

Song Of The Day – Set Fire To The Rain

I have been on the Adele train since her first album 19. She has one of the most beautiful voices and writes the most intense songs of anyone in the industry right now. “Set Fire to the Rain” is my favourite (right now) on her newest album 21. I was actually introduced to her through […]

Song Of The Day – In Too Far

Acceptance was a huge band for my at sixteen. I saw their last show in Toronto where they promised me they’d be back soon and then broke up… In Too Far is from their first and last album Phantoms, released in 2005. The song is also featured on NFL Street 2 and MLB 2006. It’s […]

Song Of The Day – Twist and Shout

Today I officially finished my third year! Since I am in a great mood the only song that made sense for today was Twist and Shout. I am particularly drawn to the Beatles version of the song which is upbeat and wonderful. Perfect for any occasion. Credit to BeatlesCentral The original song was written by Phil […]

Song Of The Day – Unattainable

Unattainable is a song by the band Little Joy and was featured in Drew Barrymore‘s movie Whip It! It is a soft and beautiful song, very simple. I have recently become obsessed with this song and recommend it highly. It is also a great song to Genius, it turns up really great playlists. Credit to JackPineRepublic

Song Of The Day – Saint Jerome

Saint Jerome is a song by Coconut Records, which is Jason Schwartzman‘s band. I’ve been a huge fan of his since Rushmore and when I heard he was making music I thought I’d check it out. (If Rooney was any indication of the musical talents in the family I was excited) Saint Jerome is a […]

Song Of The Day – Not Ready To Make Nice

Not Ready To Make Nice is the explosive country song by the band the Dixie Chicks. This is my favourite song by far from them. The song is on their 2006 album Taking The Long Way and came after remarks lead singer Natalie Maines made about President Bush when performing in London. This is one […]

Song Of The Day – Benediction

Benediction is the opening track on Thurston Moore‘s upcoming CD Demolished Thoughts. The track is produced by Beck, which got me really excited. Moore’s voice is beautiful on this track and the violin in the background provides the perfect uplifting balance to the song. This is a departure from Sonic Youth‘s sound but Beneditction is […]
