The Song in My Head: “Young Love” by Eli Lieb

leave a comment »

So this song has been in my head for a while now. I can’t even explain why, but it’s so damn catchy. And the idea that “this love is getting dangerous” is one that I can understand quite well. So enjoy.

This song is brilliant on so many levels. And because of a rough day, I think that it might be my anthem for tonight. So enjoy. Also, have I mentioned that Lily Allen is my spirit animal?

The Song in My Head: “First Time He Kissed a Boy”

leave a comment »

I found this song today. It popped up in my YouTube feed, and I clicked into it. It’s from Danish band Kadie Elder. And its message is comes from the turmoil that is teenage years in the lives of young men and women. They move from the “first time he kissed a boy” to lead us into what comes next. The idea behind the song is simple, but for me, it sends a positive message.

Growing up in the rural South where being gay / trans / bi is oftentimes looked down on and even seen as a black mark on persons, I think we need a little more of the understanding and positive message inherent here to push the hate and bigotry out of the way. Enjoy the song and the video.

Songs in My Head: “All I Want” performed by Stevie McCrorie

leave a comment »

Ever since I heard Stevie McCrorie on “The Voice UK,” I fell in love with his voice because of its rawness and sincerity. There’s just something about the way in which he interprets songs that makes me really feel what it is that he is going for if that makes sense to anyone out there in blogland.

His cover of “All I Want,” originally performed by Kodaline, is probably one of my favorites that he does. I hope you enjoy.

Rhiannon

leave a comment »

So on “American Horror Story: Coven” tonight, Stevie Nicks appeared. I’m posting this video because of my love of her. This is a live version of her hit “Rhiannon,” which she performs on the show. I do, however, wish that the show had used her a little more effectively, not just a songstress, white witch (this is okay too though). I hope you enjoy this extended version of the song.

“Model Behavior” from “Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown”

with one comment

Performed here by Laura Benanti. Probably the most fun song from the show, here, Candela, a model, sings her fears about her new boyfriend to her friend Pepa, and hilarity ensues. Great song and awesome performance by Benanti, for which she received a Tony nomination and won a Drama Desk Award. Enjoy!
