Four for (a snowy) Friday

So you probably should have seen this coming.

That’s right, songs about snow.

What sets these songs apart is that you don’t need snow to appreciate any of them.

Red Hot Chili Peppers – Snow // Ok, I know that this song isn’t really about snow. Who cares? “Hey Oh. Listen what I say oh.”

Matt Pond PA – Snow Day // Something we’ve had a few of around here lately.

William Fitzsimmons – Covered in Snow // I never miss a chance to fill your ears with more of “The Beard.” Mr. Fitzsimmons deserves an honorary doctorate in #Blife.

Sleeping at Last – Snow // This song comes from their intriguing “Yearbook” project. You are getting the added bonus of the video for two reasons. One, it’s really good. Two, it was edited by my brother-in-law.

Four (more downers) for Friday

Ok, first thing to notice. I got a new look. I know, it’s fly…  like a G6.

Now, down to business. Last week, I promised to offer up some tunes that weren’t of the the “sad b%$#@*&” variety, but I just wasn’t able to pull it off. What you see before you is the best I’ve got to offer from the previous week.

Get excited.

William Fitzsimmons – The Tide Pulls from the Moon // Folks, this one is worth the price of admission alone.  You did pay to get on my site, right?

James Vincent McMorrow – If I Had a Boat // “I’d row in the morning. I’d row in the evening.  All over this land.” If you missed out on the somewhat obscure Peter, Paul, and Mary reference, that’s ok.  It was pretty lame.  Great song though.

Andrew Belle – The Ladder // Somehow I missed out this guy’s music last year.  Criminal.  If you close your eyes, you would think you are listening to Greg Laswell’s long lost twin.  I guess you don’t really have to close your eyes.  It doesn’t make any difference. My good friend Bobby threw a couple of his tunes up yesterday.  By the way, Bobby does have twitter.  @bharrison24.  You should flood him with twitter messages until he caves and joins the #twitterevolution .

The Civil Wars – Barton Hollow // So I thought these guys were pretty cool. Then I went to their myspace page, and saw that they played The Tonight Show. I guess that’s forgivable. Maybe. By the way, their theology is pretty spot on. No preacher man can save their soul. 

And that’s a wrap my friends.

Be safe.

And don’t listen to crappy music.

Words to live by.
