Friday Fixins

As much as I would like to just verbally vomit all my musical desires on a regular occasion, I'm still trying to find free time to do that. I have made a couple of purchases lately that I'm very happy with and would like to share in case you have some iTunes money and are looking for suggestions.

-Mumford and Sons - "Little Lion Man"
I'm aware this band has already kind of "hit it." I tested it after much resistence to giving in to the mass appeal. But ya know, the slice of excitement I feel when I hear this song is worth it.

-Cee-Lo Green - "F*** You"
Uhhh, I'm almost positive every man, woman, and child has heard some version of this song in the past couple of months. This song is the perfect recipe for dancing, singing, and making a point, all at the same time. I prefer the unedited version, because I like the eff word. I don't know how Cee-Lo did it, but, damn, he did.

-Fitz and the Tantrums - "Moneygrabber
Catchy shizz up in this three minutes! I've already talked about, so I won't really elaborate. I, unfortunately, get the feeling that this is the only song that'll see the light of day until they poof back into one-hit-wonderdom.

-Florence & The Machine - "Cosmic Love"
This band sounds like so many other bands that's really hard to pinpoint who I want to. I've pegged Imogen Heap, and Sarah McLachlan. This would explain why my sister (who likes exactly 3 bands and Justin Bieber) is a fan. Love this song, though. And, that other one, "Dog Days of Summer." I recommend the whole freakin' album. Trust me on that one.

-Grace Potter and the Nocturnals - "Treat Me Right"
So, my great friend, Tori, gave me a copy of Nothing But The Water for my birthday, and I've been in blues bitten heaven with it. I feel like this is a good, modern anthem for all those women out there who keep magnetizing douchebags of epic proportion. Eh?

-Wolves - "Nightfriends"
Listen to this. What do you think of it? I think of dark alleys a la Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and smoke. And, I think of seducing boys. And, blue lights. But mostly, I think about how it makes me all pumped and stuff.

That's all I got for now. Hey, if you're near a Chick-Fil-A today, they're giving away free fries! Only between 2pm and 4pm, though. And, you have to say, "Heinz Dip and Squeeze, please!"

Tata, betch.
