two words is all I gots ta say about this track.
labrinth – let it be
I mean. Seriously,
not lookin to over hype things.
certainly don’t wanna build something up so high that it can’t begin to measure.
and goodness knows, this dude has always been a big AG advocate.
but this new single? something totally unexpectedly great.
ariana grande ft. the weeknd – love me harder
so here’s how it happened.
stumbled upon the one and thought to myself… naw. too slow for a tuesday.
cuz you know I like to keep it flying high if and whenever possible.
but then I hit on this second low one. fell in love again. and knew I just needed to give into the vibe comin my way.
so here goes:
kaleo – all the pretty girls
mike dignam – hurt
Got an embarrassing story for y’all. Well, somewhat embarrassing. I’m sure you can relate at some level.
Found myself with some serious busy work at the office today. Ya know, the kind of bussssy work that requires little brain power. It happens. Not pouting here. But, thank god for Spotify. I came across Alex Clare’s new album Three Hearts, put on my bumpin’ headphones, and took a listen. After listening to Addicted to Love four times, I didn’t realized it but I had turned up the volume a little louder each time. Fourth time listening to it on repeat, I forgot to multitask and do my work. Fail. Then, I started singing along. Full shoulder movement. Head swaying back and forth. Toes tapping to the beat. Out. Of. Control. Closed my eyes. Was I at the office, my spin class, or just a 9:30 club?
Of course the boss walks in the room at this point. But he ain’t mad. Phew. Just laughs, smiles, and tells me to turn it down. And, a co-worker took video evidence for future blackmail. I was that spaced out. I ain’t ashamed though. Alex Clare, if you’re reading this: you got me #BustedAtWorkForListeningToAlexClare
Even better. It was a beautiful day in our great nation’s capital. I took my lunch break to listen to his entire album while eating in front of the White House. Naw, Alex ain’t American, but I got that feeling. Ya know, when you internalize the music (Jesse Nolan of the band Caught a Ghost knows what I’m talkin’ about). Like I wanted to dance up and down Penn Ave to his grooves mid-day for no reason at all. I then came back to the office and acted like nothing had happened. #truestory
And you bet that after posting this, I’ll be blasting his album. So if any of ya want to rush over here and help me clean my condo and join the Alex Clare party, let this dude know.
Nope, not really. Probably just need to work on multi-tasking skills. But, as long as great music is released and I’m at my desk, shit like this is bound to happen. It’s human nature. Oh, and this got me too.
Other incidents like this include:
I know I hyped up this track to the nth degree. It may not be the best song out there right now. But hey, it got me today. Hope it gets ya.
