Song 56: Real Estate – Darling

Artist: Real Estate Song: Darling After not really feeling the last YouTube suggestion I was a bit nervous to let it autoplay. Thankfully this track which came on after listening to the Taylor Knox song is one which I can appreciate a lot more than the last suggestion I was given.  The band is completely…

Song 55: The Breeders – Wait In The Car

Artist: The Breeders Song: Wait In The Car YouTube missed the mark with this suggestion. Not sure if it was just the song or the artist, but there wasn’t much about this song which I can say I liked. I guess the one good thing is that it was short so I didn’t need to…

Song 54: Taylor Knox – Running Into Love

Song 49: Shanika Maria – Doomed

Artist: Shanika Maria Song: Doomed I caught this gem of a song as part of the Hamilton 7 storytelling event at the Staircase Theatre. If you’ve never been to one of their events I highly recommend that check them out.  They happen about once a month and the storytellers are incredibly talented. It’s a really…

Song 48: Vance Joy – Call If You Need Me

Artist: Vance Joy Song: Call If You Need Me Before this song I think I knew exactly one Vance Joy song – if you can’t guess it then I think you’ve been living under an even bigger rock than me. This song was a random YouTube suggestion for me after watching a few videos from the…

Artist: Manchester Orchestra Song: The Gold (Acoustic) Sitting in the car as we left the London Poetry Slam this song came on the SiriusXM radio station dedicated just to acoustic songs. With it getting late in the day and not having chosen a song for the day I opted to “Shazam” it and use it…
