Do you remember how you felt when you first listened to a song you like? ...One that spoke to you, even if in some unexplained way. Here are two recent songs that I've discovered online.
The first is Fix You by Coldplay. Lukas Rossi will be singing it on Rock Star: Supernova this Tuesday. I thought I'd listen to the original a few times before seeing it covered by someone else. I think this is the song used with the TV movie trailer for World Trade Center because I remember hearing the words "lights will guide you" being sung at the end. This song starts out slow, but picks up mid-song and finishes with all the guys singing at a live concert. Note: you might have to turn up the volume slightly to hear the beginning of this song.
The second song is Headspin by Lukas Rossi. He sang it last week on Rock Star: Supernova when all the contestants got to sing their own original song. Again, I wanted to be familiar with a song before seeing it performed on TV. The myspace.com version is better quality audio. But I really like the longer, stripped down acoustic version shown here.
On the knitting front, I have finished Clapotis and am working on a matching cap I got from this site thanks to whimsical knitting. Once the hat is done and the scarf is blocked, I'll take some pics. Using leftover yarn from Calla, I made a short sleeve pink tee for Marie (24-month size). It's my own design and very basic. I'll post pics and details sometime soon.
