Sweater Weather

The Neighbourhood

It's too cold
For you here and now
Let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

I mostly listen to the radio at work. Have you heard this song -- Sweater Weather? It's in pretty heavy rotation on the station that's tuned in her most.

Of course, I couldn't help but think of another favorite sweater song.

Mason-Dixon Knitting's Ann & Kay

If you knit for a friend,
Does that make it a sin?

Today's Yesterday's Ten on Tuesday topic is 10 Songs That Make You Want To Dance. I'll tell you what, there are about 10 million songs that make me want to dance! I am always tapping my toes, swaying to-and-fro, dancing in my seat... it makes my brain implode to think about narrowing it down to 10. I thought it might be a good time to finish this post, that I actually started it at the end of July!

I've been listening to a lot of music on Spotify lately. I love music -- all types -- and I especially enjoy my friends' playlists wherein I sometimes rediscover old favorites and always find some new (maybe only to me).

In heavy rotation lately is Kate's summerfallwinter2013 list, including: Avicii, Saint Motel, Lana Del Rey, Fitz and The Tantrums, The Boxer Rebellion, Foals, Lorde, and Deb Talan.

I honed in a little more on Deb Talan yesterday and began listening to her album A Bird Flies Out. My first thought was, "Sharon would like this," and I had an impulse to call her up! Instead, I'll call you all up and share what I'm listening to (some of it really does make me want to dance!):

1. Avicii: Wake Me Up

2. Saint Motel: My Type

3. Lana Del Rey: Young And Beautiful

4. Fitz and The Tantrums: Out Of My League

5. The Boxer Rebellion: Diamonds

6. Foals: Late Night

7. Lorde: Biting Down

8. Deb Talan: Rocks and Water

9. Nina Simone: Sinnerman (Felix Da Housecat's Heavenly House Mix)

10. Lana Del Rey: Summertime Sadness [Lana Del Rey vs. Cedric Gervais] (Cedric Gervais Remix)

What's playin' on your boom box?

I have to admit I don't know any of those songs. But dancing is always good!

Hawksley Workman, a Canadian artist with a great sense of fun, wrote a song called "Learn How To Knit".

It's one of my faves.

Wow! Am I behind. I feel old and out of date, must listen and catch up with what's in today!

Solomon Burke---I've been in the mood for some old soul music lately, along with allot of Motown.
