Songs that Talk to Each Other: Blue Jay Way vs. I Won’t Be Long

I like to nerd out and play Beck’s I Won’t Be Long  after The Beatles, Blue Jay Way (probably one of my top 10 Beatles songs) because I feel like they talk to each other (if songs could do that…) and I thought I was pretty cool for pairing the two, then I went to write this post, did a little Googling and found out plenty of other people made the same reference, but: 

I’ve been in a posting funk, and I still want to share it. Plus, through my internet research, I took a genuine look at the single artwork for I Won’t Be Long, and guess what I found, Paul and, what looks like Ringo hanging out (see here). I don’t buy singles because my ‘ballin’ on a budget’ lifestyle just can’t support that type of spending, so I wouldn’t have clued in otherwise #learningthings.

Now for the actually music:

  • It’s too difficult to find a good streaming version of the Beatles original (this post is just falling apart…), so I used a version from the Across the Universe movie way back when, I’d recommend listening to the original, either in the album or CD format (YouTube videos just aren’t the same), but you get the gist.

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!

Travel Time – The July Playlist

It isn’t July just yet, but I wanted to get a head start since I will be out of the country come Canada Day (how ironic).  I am going on an exciting adventure to Italy and Greece for the whole month and may not get a chance to post as much.  So, I figured a nostalgic/loosely themed playlist could be a second-rate consolation prize.

I tried to fit all my recent favourites on this playlist  (Foster the People, Wild Nothing etc.) as well as some consistent favourites.  So on that note, here is my parting gift for the month if I don’t get an opportunity to post what I’m listening to.
