song of the day

For the past week I’ve been listening to iTunes in the background, waiting for something to come on that would inspire me to post a song of the day and nothing. I was beginning to wonder if something was wrong with me. But then Weezer’s Buddy Holly came on and now I feel better. This is one of my all time favorite music videos. I think it is completely brilliant.

Hm. It makes me think that maybe I should blog a series of favorite music videos….


I need an easy friend, I do, with an ear to lend

A friend reminded me that a couple of days ago was the death anniversary of Kurt Cobain. 😦 His blog post got me thinking about what my favorite Nirvana song is. A very hard choice. But I think my favorite Nirvana song is “About A Girl.”  I read (or heard) somewhere that is what fell out of his brain after listening to the Beatles all night. And, indeed, it has that jaunty, old time, rock and roll feel to it, with an edge.

So that thought came and went and I went about my business. Then yesterday as I walked home from work guess what song randomly popped up on my iTunes? Yep. About A Girl.

It’s always great to hear it and revisiting the MTV Unplugged video fills me with a little bit of sadness.
