Song obsessions are those songs that we listen to on repeat. I noticed that my obsessions are often a week long. I also thought that other people might have similar obsessions. I’ve collected a panel of a few like-minded individuals and gotten their “song obsessions of the week.” Quite often it’s easy to explain why the song is good; it’s much hard to explain why we’re obsessed. Maybe you’ll become obsessed with one of these.
I heard “Murder in the City” at a few blogs, but hearing this song at NPR sold me on getting the EP. I’ve been listening to the whole thing quite a bit, but especially this song (and to a lesser extent “Murder”.) I’m a sucker for a straight up folksy song with a great story and a timeless melody. Oh and tasteful banjo certainly helps, too.
Iâ€™ve never doubted the fun factor of No Doubtâ€™s singles it took a greatest hits collection to finally compel me to compensate them for their talents. While the â€œItâ€™s My Lifeâ€ cover was the real impulse behind this purchase several other unknown (to me) tunes also proved their worth, such as this urgently smooth song.
If there’s a better new track on the world wide web right now, I’d like someone to tell me about it. I’d then say that you are wrong.
Let’s just say I can’t wait for The Stand-Ins to come out in September.
