Music Mayhem

I bought three CDs the other week when my best pal, Sara, was in town visiting me.  Honestly, does anyone still buy CDs?  My car has a 6-disc player that has been only filled with three for the longest time, so, on a bit of a whim, I decided to buy three more to fill that sucker up.

Currently in the number 4 slot is Drake's Thank Me Later album.  My current favorite from that CD is Fancy.  If you're ever in ND and see me jamming out to it, do us both a favor and look the other way.  I kind of came late to the Drake party.  My boss loves him and used to play him all the time when we'd close the store.  Last year when I was in the cities and at a club, I remembered hearing a song and thinking about how great it was...only to discover months later that it was Drake.

Spot number 5 is occupied by Lady Antebellum's album, Own the Night.  I have listened to Cold as Stone about 270141028 times since buying the CD.  Love, love, love it.

The final space holds Mumford and Son's album, Sigh No More.  When I heard Timshel for the first time on the CD, I wanted to start crying.  All of their music is so beautiful and reaches me in a strange and wonderful way, but this song really struck me.  I went home after hearing it for the first time and told my parents that if I pass in the next few years, that I'd like it played at my funeral.  A little morbid perhaps, but that's just me.

And I'm also a little disappointed that none of my favorites had a music video.  Remember when you were younger and would sit at the computer and marvel at music videos for hours on end while your mother yelled at you to get off so she could make a phone call?  No?  Just me?
