“Earworm” is a term for music that’s stuck in your head. Don’t believe me? I don’t blame you. I thought it was some kind of ailment when I first heard about it. It sounds like ringworm and swimmer’s ear had a baby and that’s what you came down with. Gross. Anyway if you really don’t believe me, click here and read up on what wikipedia has to say about it. Wiki-wiki!
As you all may or may not know, I am perpetually pleasantly visited by earworms. I listen to music 24/7, I go to concerts, I play music etc. I usually end up with a song of the week so I thought it’d be kinda fun to just keep track of what I’ve been listening to so that when I go home I’ll have a really awesome
mix-tape playlist to always remind me of my time here. There’s no rhyme or reason for any of these songs–they’re just what come up.
Paper Bag by Fiona Apple.
Naomi by Neutral Milk Hotel
Love me some Jeff Mangum. Really.
You Got It by Roy Orbison.
An homage to American Target. I do miss you and your usefulness, Target. Aussie Target does not live up to your standards.
Have you Ever by Brandi Carlile
Come in Please by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
My love for this band will not die. I've seen them in concert twice and both times were so magical. I don't think anything will ever beat the time I got to dance on stage with them, on the beach, in front of like a thousand people. So magical. This is one of my favorite tracks on the album, though the whole thing is great.
Song For No One by Miike Snow
Good beat. Good fun. Perfect for the sunshine that emerged that week.
Here we Are by Patrick Park
And it's a crying shame
How we get so trained
The rest of the songs will come with regular posts. Enjoy!
