Winter: December, January and February.  

New York Winter: December, January, February, March, April and counting.

I have learned the hard way that I was NOT meant to live in a place that snows and rains for 4 months straight (I blame 6 years in LA for this mentality).

A TEXT POST

Fall in Central Park Mix

*Red Red Rose- The Weepies

  • (Why are the Weepies so good? Impossible to pick one song from their new album)
  • Memories come back like falling leaves leaves leaves

*Rooco- Arcade Fire

  • (One of my favorite bands, and they have something nice to say to.  And by nice, I mean anti-hipster generation well-worded rant.  LOVES IT)
  • Let’s go downtown and talk to the modern kids/They will eat right out of your hand/Using great big words that they don’t understand.

*Changes- Stars

  • (Great beat, great voice, killer lyrics= Stars)
  • I’ve never been good with change/ I hate it when it all stays the same

*Under Your Charms- Josh Rouse

  • (Gotta appreciate a song that seriously uses the phrase “it’s the end of the night and I’m feeling sexual”)

*Rolling in Deep- Adele

  • (Her new song is glorious)

*Leave- Matchbox 20

  • (Even after hearing the album ‘Mad Season’ backwards and forwards for 8+ years, I’m not over it.  This song hooks me like no other)
  • I’m not sayin’ we ever had the right to hold on/ I just couldn’t ever let you get away from me

*Tighten Up- The Black Keys

  • (If you don’t’ like this song, I don’t like you)

*Here Comes Your Man- The Pixies

  • (It’s hard not to sing the verse “so long, so long” outloud.  I recognize I should try harder…)

*Dog Days Are Over- Florence + The Machine

  • (It’s verging on popular, which makes me not want to like it because I’m admittedly one of those people, but I can’t help it…)

*Slow Motion- David Gray

  • (How did I just discover this song while hearing DG live this summer? I should have been in love with this song for 5 years)
  • Life in slow motion somehow it don’t feel real

*Teenage Dream- Glee Cast

  • (This version of Katy Perry’s Teenage Dream is dreamy, and if you’re not watching Glee you don’t get to judge)

*Song For You- Alexi Murdoch

  • (My friend Mikey and I deduced that Alexi sounds just like Nick Drake.  But who cares, I love Nick Drake.  To top it off, it’s from the fabulous movie Away We Go)

*Spitting Fire- The Boxer Rebellion

  • What the rest did was average/ But I don’t mind

*A Better Son/Daughter- Rilo Kiley

  • (The most kickass song I know.  Once you get past 1:39, you’ll see what I mean)
