Waves of the Heart

Tegan Quin

I feel so laaaaaaazzzzzyyyy. Sorry about that. Back from hiatus! Ha, you’ve heard that before.

Also, I’ve had the craziest weekend ever and let’s just say my emotions are a little unhinged right now.

But you know what I do when my emotions are ranging from 1-10 on a scale of 1-10? I listen to great music! It stabilizes my mood like nothing else can.

At first today I was listening to happy, peppy songs to try and make myself feel happy and peppy, but it wasn’t until I listened to How, by Regina Spektor that I really started to feel better. And no, that song is not indicative of what happened this weekend. The other song that made me feel better was Whole Love, by Wilco. But neither of those are today’s songs. If you’d be so kind as to remember I’ve already posted about Wilco, and even that exact song! C’mon, memories people.

Ha, just kidding . . . I don’t even remember what I’ve posted about. But I know what I’m posting about today!

Borne On The FM Waves Of The Heart, by Against Me! ft Tegan Quin (of Tegan and Sara)

I like the rock n roll quality of this guys voice. Actually, maybe I shouldn’t say “guy” but that’s not a story for this blog! I also love Tegan’s voice. Sometimes I don’t like listening to Tegan & Sara if it’s just them all the way through, but in combination with someone else’s voice, I love it!!

Also, just I really enjoy listening to this song. It’s a great song. Enjoy! And here’s Against Me!’s facebook:




I can’t think of a title . . .

If you like scary movies, do yourself a favor and watch the mini-series “Harper’s Island.” Terrifying and hauntingly satisfying. There are so many characters in that show that I love way more than I thought from the first episode! Darn you The Canadian for introducing me to that show!

Also, remember that great time that is so far gone when no one knew Fun.? And then they came out with “We Are Young” and suddenly everyone knew who they were. I mean, I went to their concert a couple years ago. And it was free! That’s how unknown they were. Just kidding, it was some kind of student concert at ASU and there was also Motion City Soundtrack, so it’s not like they couldn’t have made people pay for that. Anyways, I’ve been listening to their new album today, and I just keep thinking of a little kid with a new toy and he just uses it to death. That new toy is autotune. Why, fun., why? But in the song “Stars” I actually like it, I think because it’s so stylized.

So instead of doing a featured artist, I’m going to tell you what I’ve bought music-wise lately. Oh yeah, insight into my life. What music will I spend money on? Well, a small amount of money. I will only buy it if it’s a 99 cent album or a 25 cent song. So! In the spirit of college income (0$) here is what I’ve bought all this year:


25 cent songs:

Too Close, by Alex Clare

Tongue Tied, by Grouplove (one of my favorite songs right now)

It’s Time, by Imagine Dragons

Good Time, by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen (I’ll admit, this was mostly curiosity. I mean, that’s worth 25 cents right? Plus, it’s so catchy. Darn this song!)

Enter Sandman, by Metallica (I can’t believe I didn’t have this in my music library before now. I mean, a person has to have at least one Metallica song.)

Swimming in the Flood, by Passion Pit (One of my faves by them. Plus I had a 2$ credit with Amazon.)

Boomerang, by Miniature Tigers (I’ve talked about this before. My first post, actually. Good times.)


99 cent albums:

Some Nights, by Fun.

Katy Perry (Don’t judge me.)

Making Mirrors, by Gotye (Someone That I Used to Know is not their only good song. In fact, it’s not even their best song.)

Love is a Four Letter Word, by Jason Mraz

El Camino, by the Black Keys

My Head Is An Animal, by Of Monsters and Men

Ceremonials, by Florence + the Machine (One of the greatest female vocalists of our generation)

What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, by Regina Spektor (Another of the greatest vocalists of our generation)

Lights, by Ellie Goulding (My girl crush)


I also got a ton of free albums and songs because sometimes Amazon just rocks! But I’m not going to list those, because there’s like a billion. Also, every time I write Amazon I always want to put a ‘g’ at the end. There is no such thing as Amazong. If there was, it would be a verb.

But there it is. All my music purchases. Actually, that’s not true, I got an iTunes gift certificate for Christmas. Dang it! Maybe later.
