“I can’t help but pull the earth around me, to make my bed”

I think I’ve been listening to Indie 88 a lil too much. It hits its gear ramping up for the final go around….

….to wrreeeeeeeeccccccccckkkkkkkkkk…

Ship to Wreck 2:56 – 3:40

From How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful, released through Island records, 2015

0165 Tegan and Sara – Back in your Head @ 2:16

Thursday, April 17th, 2014

“I just want back in your head…”

I think if you know this song, you’ll agree with me. The run, run, run part is a sneaky lie as James Murphy would say.

Unless you’d say the piano part, man I can play that.

Back in your Head 2:16 – 2:46

From The Con, released through Vapor records, 2007.

0135 Eddie Money – Take me home tonight @ 2:21

This one’s obvious, just like Ronnie sang.

0134 – The Killers – When You Were Young @ 2:20

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

“They say the devil’s water, it’s ain’t so sweet, you don’t have to drink right now, but you can dip your feet, every once in a little while….”

The blog’s been getting a little new school recently, so I thought I would harken back a little. I’ve always loved this part of the song, but I never really paid 100% attention to what he was saying in the above quote until I just wrote it out. Nice work Brandon. These guys are from Vegas, and at this time of year, I start thinking back to the pool parties and the super fun casinos. Yes, I will be back!!

When You Were Young 1:55 – 2:33

From Sam’s Town, released through Island Records, 2006

“I see you shine in your way, go on, go on, go on”

I love that instrument in the background.  This is a good one to start off year #3. I thought I’d be rich by now though…
