Just Another Music Friday – 10/24/2008

What’s in a song? String together a couple of notes, add a tempo, and given the right circumstances a song can move the world.

The wrong song can ruin a moment or dredge up memories we’d like to forget.
The right song can drive people apart, pull them together, incite rebellion, inspire generations, and offer solace.

Last weekend, while in Stillwater Mn,I took this picture of a sweet looking old couple holding hands while sitting on a park bench. I think there’s something awesome about old couples that still enjoy each other’s company. You know they have a song.

I’m not sure what’s in a song that makes music so powerful. Good or bad, I just know it when I hear it.

What’s in your shuffle?

(Here’s a vid I took of a dude singing and playing guitar on the river walk I call him the Seeker.)

    I recently picked up "Sleepyhead" by Passion Pit from the Current’s Song of the Day podcast (10/20/08). It’s weird at first, but it’s really gotten in my head.

    Hopefully my gf and I will be old and still holding hands someday. Our song is Peter Himmelman’s "Cross This Bridge."

    I listened to a bunch of downtempo stuff today, Cornelius and then Coco Rosie. I first heard Coco Rosie open for Bright Eyes and was blown away. This is one of my favorites.

    I like Coco Rosie’s "Rainbow Warriors" (got that one from the Current SotD podcast, too).

    I checked out all sorts of Coco Rosie last night. Some I really like and some is a little off. Though, I relaly like her voice.
