Hey world! Two weeks is a long time! Sorry but I’ve been studying for Finals which start on Monday! YESSS!!!
Well once these zombie days are over I’ll do some more Holiday Posts. Maybe a couple recipes… WHO KNOWS?
But to get you started, here’s a list of some of my favorite, lesser-known songs. THEY ARE GEMS. They’re all safe for gifting on iTunes this Holiday, all clean lyrics and oober catchy. Just a precaution: All songs will be appreciated by girls; promise. As far as the men-folk go… that’s uncharted territory. If the dude you have in mind appreciates TRUE ART when he hears it, then knock yourself out. Otherwise, Greenday or Bruce Springsteen is universally accepted in Macho-land.
I’ll give a couple reviews for the ones that stick out for me but give ’em all a chance! I repeat: They’re all GEMS!
In no particular order:
Ben Rector- The Beat (Listen to it and you’ll get the name)
” “- Loving You is Easy (Perfect for a Preschool Teacher… or just any cutsie teacher)
Delany Gibson- La Di Da
Gavin DeGraw- Not Over You (Gavin is very pugnacious; might work with your men-folk)
Rob Thomas- Street Corner Symphony
Matt Kearny- Fire and Rain
The Afters- Light Up The Sky
Jason Mraz- The Remedy
New Boyz- Meet My Mom (Especially Adorable!)
Tyrone Wells- Running Around In My Dreams
Demi Lovato- You’re My Only Shorty (You don’t have to like her, GREAT SONG)
Anarbor- You and I
Andy Grammer- Keep Your Head Up (Especially safe, everybody loves this guy)
Carlos Bertonatti- Perfect Picture
Dave Barnes- Carry Me Through (For the heavy duty gospel lover… PRAISE THE LORD!)
David Archuleta- Parachutes & Airplanes (Love this boy!<3)
David Guetta & Usher- Without You
Duffy- Mercy (Kinda weird but catchy!)
Grace Potter- Something That I Want (Sound familiar? Disney’s Tangled baby!)
Smile- Keegan Smith (GREAT artist, STRONGLY recommend)
KT Tunstall (Pronounced KAY-tee)- Fade Like a Shadow
Luce- The Sweetest Smile
Thurston Harris (1937 fyi)- Little Bitty Pretty One (Utterley Adorable, esp. for the elderly-folk who remember this song brand spanking NEW)
Alvin and the Chipmunks- Witch Doctor (WARNING! SINGING CHIPMUNKS ARE EXTREMELY ANNOYING TO ANYBODY BUT SMALL CHIILDREN! DO NOT GIFT TO THE ELDERLY!) Not bad for a 5 year old though…
Del Amitri- Roll To Me
Vanessa Carlton- White Houses
As the French say, PROFITER!
(and if that was awkward because you’re not French that means ENJOY!)
