There’s been so much nostalgia this week once I heard Veruca Salt are reforming and touring in September!!!!
Even though I really only ever loved one song, its such a kickarse song that its been on repeat this week.
However they’re playing the day after the AFL grand final so I’m not planning on buying tickets just yet!
There’s three songs of the week this week.
They’ve all been on repeat and I just couldn’t pick between them.
Michmash posted about Pomplamoose which somehow led to BOY which led me back to Haim.
And I haven’t been able to stop listening to any of these songs.
I won’t and you can’t make me.
I’ve done a song of the week post nearly every week for the last two years, and I love it.
There’s a popular idea at the moment of having a jar and writing down the cool shit as it happens and then reading it in the new year. Well this is kind of the same except with music.
At the end of each year I have a playlist which is like a walk down memory lane. It reminds me of all the live gigs I saw, new music that was released, old music that I discovered for the first time, and provides the score to some memorable moments.
2012 it was Passionpop Wednesday, based on a memorable occasion which had to be celebrated with Passion Pop – a cheap, often nasty sparkling wine.
2013 it was Stuck in my Head, based on what happens when a tune becomes stuck and repeated over and over in one’s brain.
2014 I have decided to call it Song of the Week. Mostly because I don’t have to explain it.
Kicking off the year is new Silversun Pickups!
A new song from a band I love is always a good way to start a year.
And if anyone else wants to create a playlist for the year, now’s a good time to start! Shoot me an email (bekswhoknits [at] gmail [dot] com) and I’ll include you in my next post. I may even learn how to do one of those linky things.
