Music Break 2

Continuing the long and glorious tradition (that I just started last week) here are my three favorite songs from the past week.

Caveat: I get most of my new music off Pandora so I sometimes discover songs LONG after the rest of the world. Just FYI. 😀

Up first, an amusing one from the so-talented Carsie Blanton. I love her lyrics. She’s very witty and hummable, oftentimes biting, occasionally sweet.

Other good songs by Carsie Blanton: Baby Can Dance, Money in the Bank, Every Punch You Throw

Just a few weeks ago I became a HUGE Civil Wars fan when I discovered one of the members had written most of the Gunnar/Scarlet songs on Nashville. (I LOVE Nashville.) I glommed almost every Civil Wars song there was. But now I have a sad because they have broken up. 😦 Still, we will always have the music they’ve already made together. Fingers crossed for a reunion someday.

Other good Civil Wars songs: (um, ALL of them…) Kingdom Come, Falling, I’ve Got This Friend

I’m not usually a rap person but Macklemore’s song is SO good. SO moving. The video made me cry the first time I saw it. Really beautiful.

Hope you enjoyed the music. Tune in next week to see what I’ll be playing. ;P

Ta,
Beth Matthews
