Once upon a time I worked in the music industry, and I knew a lot about music before it even hit the radio. These days I do not work in the music industry and I do not know the newest songs before they hit the radio, but I still like to shake my booty and sing along to a good song. Just ask the hubster. I made him listen to Sirius XM’s 90’s radio the whole way back from our date in Connecticut on Sunday, and I’m pretty sure my dance to Kriss Kross’s “Jump Jump” will give him nightmares for weeks to come.
These are some albums and songs that I’m singing along to – click the “Listen Here” link under each of them to listen. What about you guys? Any old or new faves to share?
Torches – The Friction
The hubster and I know the lead singer of Torches, and by “we know him” I mean the hubster knows him and I just listen to the album like crazy. Think Hillsong United-ish. Totally addictive. Every song is gold, and I can’t take it off repeat. Listen here.
Cassidee Pope – “Wasting All These Tears”
You know I love me some Cassidee Pope ever since Steph and her husband got us hooked on The Voice. I’m rooting for the Swon Brothers this time, so don’t tell me if they’re still in the running. I’m a few weeks behind! Obvs, I love this song. Listen here.
Here’s a not-so-secret secret: I’m a sucker for anything that sounds like it could have been recorded on a big porch under a sky full of fireflies. A couple of months ago, some of our good friends asked us if we’d heard of The Lone Bellow. And because I’m not that hip I said no. But now I’m hooked. Listen here.
Branches is another band that makes me want to shake off my shoes and lay out under the stars. My friend played this album last weekend while we made girly crafts for her wedding day, and I was into it. Listen here.
David Crowder Band – All This for a King: The Essential Collection
Of course I’m saving the best for last, and that’s because if you and I are honest with ourselves it’s hard to top David Crowder Band. Sometimes I sit around (i.e. work very had) and make “best of David Crowder Band” playlists on Spotify for the fun of it, because a girl needs something to sing along to while she works. So their new best of album is obviously fantastic from beginning to end. Listen here.
What are you guys listening to?
