I was gone all weekend, and wasn’t able to post from my playlist. Today, I have selections from The Fray covering Kanye West’s Heartless, Joker and the Thief in the Night by Wolfmother, and 6 Underground by the Sneaker Pimps, which has one of my favorite verses from a song: “Don’t think cause I understand/I care/Don’t think cause I’m talkin’/we’re friends”
It’s not hard for me to imagine Sean saying something like that to Krista when she first reappears in his life 🙂
If any of you remember Neneh Cherry, it’s probably for her hit from the 80’s, Buffalo Stance. What did that even mean? Anyway, she made some other amazing music, including MOVE WITH ME. I just love the chorus:
There was a time when Shawn Colvin was on heavy rotation in my car and on my stereo. I hadn’t listened to her in ages but then I found her A FEW SMALL REPAIRS CD as I was cleaning out my car. When I was putting together a playlist for Hide From Evil, I knew I needed to include a few romantic, melancholy, yet edgy songs from this amazing singer songwriter.
In my humble opinion no one is better than producing awesome tortured hero theme songs than Trent Reznor. For that reason Nine Inch Nails is featured heavily on my playlists. Today, I give you THE FRAGILE. (you can skip through the ad at the beginning after a few seconds.)
I’ve always been a fan of Bruce Springsteen, and this song about a love that faded away has always been a favorite. As performed by Patty, it brings a lump to my throat every time. Especially, the last lines, “I drive by night/And I travel in fear/that in this darkness/I will disappear.
Unfortunately I couldn’t find a complete version of this song online, so along with the clip, here are the lyrics. If you’re looking for something to put you in the mood to write a sad, angsty character, I urge you to get a copy of the song off iTunes.
I met a little girl and I settled down
In a little house on out on the edge of town
We got married, swore we’d never part
Then little by little we drifted from eachother’s hearts
At first I thought it was just restlessness
That it’d fade as time went by, and our love would heal
