Five for Friday: Random Spotify Shuffle

Since I’m out of town today for business and my normal lunch writing time is unavailable, I prepped a softball of a Five for Friday list in advance.  This should be an easy yet fun post  that provides everyone with a little insight into your musical tastes.  I actually did an iPod shuffle post for my very first Five for Friday post nearly a year ago!  Check it out here.

Here are my five with commentary.  Enjoy and then set your Starred Playlist to shuffle and link yours up using the Linky Tool at the end of the post.  Don’t use Spotify?  Then go ahead and give that iPod a shuffly spin!

Dead Sara- Lemon Scent

I just found this band a few weeks ago.  There is really nothing better than stumbling upon a band that you should have already been listening to ages ago and then devouring their entire discography song by song!

This puts me right back in the 90s when all my favorite music was on the airwaves.  These chicks rock the hell out.


Tears for Fears- Mad World

Any music listening platform in my possession will be heavy on the 80s.  Favorite 80s band?  Tears for Fears.  This is one of their best.


Lana Del Rey- Off to the Races

Though the hipsters damn near ruined liking her, I’ve never been shy about proclaiming my love for Lana.  I dig her voice.  I dig her bizarre lyrics.  She’s a weirdo, a talented weirdo.


Local Natives- Who Knows Who Cares

I’ve listened to this album too many times to count, I grinned like a fool watching their performance on Austin City Limits, and now I finally get to see them live at Shaky Knees next month!


Ima Robot- Scream

Another of Alex Ebert’s projects.  This one is quite different from Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros.  I’m a fan of anything this bizarre man releases.


Alright ladies and germs, your turn.  Shuffle it up and lay it on me!

  1. Dug the Dead Sara track,
    been listening to and enjoying Brody Dalle lately.

    • Dead Sara is awesome. I need to check out more Brody. I have a bit of jealousy toward here though since she’s married to my biggest music crush.

      Link up with you five!!

  2. Okay, why are you just now discovering Dead Sara? I’ve been raving about them on the twitter and my blog for over a year…weatherman, sorry for it all…brilliant songs. We DEFINITELY need to hang and compare shuffles.

    Okay. here’s my five, I just hit the iPod iTunes button:

    1) smells like teen spirit – the nirvana…no I’m not kidding, first thing that came up. Kurt watches over me.

    2) The Lost Boy – Greg Holden. He’s a fantastic songwriter from England who wrote that hit for Phillip Phillips, that American Idol dude. The Lost Boy was on Sons of Anarchy a couple of seasons ago in a very emo scene. You should hear this.

    3) All My Life – Foo Fighters. One of their best songs and Grohl’s best vocal. I can kinda sorta play the riffs on guitar.

    4) The House That Heaven Built – Japandroids. Two dudes from Pacific Northwest bringing punk rock back. This is my favorite song of the past 5 years. It’s perfect…and loud….and has a punk rock chorus of “tell ’em all to got to hell”.

    5) Handwritten – Gaslight Anthem. They’re my favorite band, overall, of the past decade. If Springsteen and punk rock had a baby you have Brian Fallon and Gaslight. I saw them last year at Masquerade and it was the best show I’ve seen in a long time. You should love them.

    • Dead Sara is amazing. Right up my alley.

      Gaslight Anthem is fucking amaze ally’s. I HATE Springsteen so I’m not jiving with your analogy, but they rule. Saw them at Voodoo this past year.

      Nirvana = duh

Okay, your turn to talk!
