Today is a GREAT day to share some of the things I’m loving in the world of music. Why? Because of this…
Last night I was reading and waiting for Mike to get home from work when I got a Facebook notification on my phone that he had tagged me in a picture. Mike only posts pictures of me when they’re embarrassing, so I was not looking forward to seeing what was now on Facebook. Instead of a pic of me sleeping in the car (which are his favorites to post apparently), I saw a pic of 2 tickets to see the Legends of the Summer tour with the caption “Taryn don’t make plans for August 13th.” I texted him immediately – “WTF” – and commented on the pic “WHAT?!” and then called his work when he didn’t respond within 30 seconds haha. Can you tell I’m excited?! Best. Boyfriend. Ever.
Moving on.. Hanson’s new album came out yesterday!
Unfortunately, I’m just not really a big fan of Anthem so far. Their last album was so good because it was FUN. This one just sounds darker, and I don’t think it works for them. Doesn’t matter because I still love them, but I was hoping for something a little better. (I do like the first single from this album, though – “Get The Girl Back.”)
Mae Whitman (Parenthood, Arrested Development, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, etc.) posted this video on Twitter a couple days ago. If you don’t watch Parenthood, you might not enjoy it, but I thought it was awesome and kept laughing at the guys (especially Sam Jaeger.. aka hottie on the escalator). Also, I loved LFO when I was younger, so hearing this song made me happy (even if it’s not LFO singing it). “Shooby doo wop and Scooby snacks…”
Last, but most certainly not least, is The Postal Service. They are currently on tour and I am so sad I didn’t go to any of the shows. I heard the following song for the first time as a junior in high school and fell in love with it almost immediately. Give Up was definitely one of my top 5 most played albums through high school and college, and I’m so glad they decided to do a tour this year.. even if I didn’t get to see them.
What’s your favorite song at the moment? Any concerts coming up?
