Random Music Loving

Received this email from Jamie while I was on my trip:

I'm ''crushing on this song" as you would say. Thought you'd like the song too! Hope your trip is lots of fun! Was great having you and see you soon in Beantown.

I love how she picked a song that would so perfectly suit me. I love that she picked up on my habit of making nouns into verbs and that I do this particularly so with the word "crush" when referring to music. I love that this song fits both of us like a glove; that feeling of being a free spirit in a less-than-free-spirited environment, of wanting to stretch your wings and fly off to adventures unknown in lands far away, yet that bit of hesitation that neither of us can honestly deny does not keep us rooted to the grounds we now tread. I love that she went with me to the Vienna Teng concert back in April. And I'm currently loving this Vienna Teng song:

What are you listening to?

Always nice when you have a music soulmate. The last album obsession I had was Elbow (their most recent one, can't remember now what it's called... alliteration in the title, I think), in springtime. I've been plugged into a lot of Pandora this summer, listening to music from the 80's and 90's.

I love Vienna Teng! lucky that you got to see her in concert recently too! Have you heard her newest album? I think Tower is my fav song of her but they're all so sweet and mellow :) I posted a playlist yesterday of the songs I've been listening to lately :)
