Listen To The Music Of The Moment, People Dance And Sing

I know I said I was going to try to do musical themed Mondays, but two of my very favorite artists released albums today.

1. Jason Mraz- We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things

I know Jason's not for everyone, and I get that. But he's practically the soundtrack to my relationship with my boyfriend. We've seen him in concert lots of times. His music, to me, is total relaxation. He's such a free spirit, and that really translates into his music.

This song, I'm Yours, was a longtime favorite of mine, and many Mraz fans. It was a demo that hadn't yet made it onto a studio album until now.

2. Death Cab For Cutie- Narrow Stairs

This has been one of my favorite bands for years and years, and I think they've gotten a bad rap. Yes, they're indie and mildly emo. But they're also unique and creative, and have a sound all their own. Ignore the fact that they were OC favorites. Just because they've caught a little bit of popularity doesn't make them bad.

Their first single, I Will Possess Your Heart, is an ambitious 8 minutes 30 seconds long. The first four minutes is an instrumental introduction. It's creepy and stalkerish, in a great way.

I've always been curious about Death Cab but never checked them out. I think Foo Fighters is the soundtrrack to our relationship.
