#MusicVideoMonday : Arctic Monkey’s Arabella

I was excited to see what the Arctic Monkeys would come up with for their Arabella music video and even though I still like the song, the music video was just kind of meh…

Do I wanna Know? was so cool visually and Why’d you Only Call Me When You’re High? had that strong story line. Sometimes when I listen to a song I sort of picture a movie playing in my head where that song is the backdrop, and the Why’d you(too lazy to type out the whole title) video lined up perfectly with the plot I had in my mind. So this may not be my favourite but I have such a soft spot for this band. I’m playing this album constantly, and fans will be happy to know they’ve added a summer Toronto date, so if you’re interested in seeing them I think there are some lawn seats still available.

TGIF Playlist: January 30, 2013

January is over and so is this work week. I’ll be headed to Classic Albums Live: The Beatles concert tonight (pretending I’m watching the real thing) so I’m kicking off this week’s playlist with a little Sir Paul McCartney. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Sasha’s Favourite Songs of 2013

Here are my top 15 songs of 2013! I don’t get a chance to listen to everything that comes out each year, so if you have any musical gems that I’ve left out to share, please leave them in the comment section below (our e-mail inbox overwhelms me sometimes). I’d love to take a listen.  I’m also looking forward to seeing Katie’s picks (since I won’t let myself forget that she posted about Tame Impala way before I took a I listen) for some more stuff to fill my music collection with.  Enjoy!

Music Between Friends Halloween Playlist: Sasha’s Picks

Happy Halloween!!  Along with Katie, I’ve compiled some songs to play tonight to celebrate a day where people dress up and be who/whatever they want, terrifying or fabulous, or terrifyingly fabulous and eat chocolate, yum. Here’s what’s on my list:

Arctic MonkeysPerhaps Vampires is a bit Strong but…

Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Buried Alive (feat. Dr. Octagon). The album artwork  for Mosquito could give children nightmares all on its own.

alt-JBreezeblocks.  The music video is what makes me feel like this song is meant for a horror film.

Radiohead – Bodysnatchers.  Apparently this song was recorded in a “dilapidated mansion” (creepy) plus any excuse I can use to get a Radiohead song on the playlist…

Franz Ferdinand Evil Eye.

LordeGlory and Guts

Akron/FamilyMany Ghosts

Kanye West– I am a God. The screaming is what makes this feel like Halloween — the type of song that would play during a movie scene where the main character is running for their life. *My reaction* But seriously, get the guy his croissant so he can calm down.

Ending my playlist is a funny song because I’m the kind of person who needs to chase something scary with something funny or cute or else I can’t sleep at night, so Werewolf Bar Mitzvah… it is! “Boys becoming men, men becoming wolves…” typical Halloween.
