Today’s Track – A Moor – Raleigh Ritchie

In honor of the  kick off of the new season of Game of Thrones, how ’bout a little something from Grayworm himself? A Moor by Raleigh Ritchie from the album You’re a Man Now, Boy, 2016.


Today’s Track – Holding On, Disclosure

I’m taking the rest of the week off from work in an attempt to refresh and rejigger, and this seemed like a pretty good track to kick things off. Holding On (the single, featuring Gregory Porter) by Disclosure, 2015.


Today’s Track – Ingenting, Blå Kongo

Today we’re going with a truly random track from Sweden, Shazammed whilst overseas lat month. Ingenting by Blå Kongo from their self titled album, 2002.


Today’s Track – Loud Places, Jamie xx (feat. Romy)

I’m driving a minivan around San Francisco today, which is quite silly for someone who’s really better suited to a sub-compact (how I get myself into these things is beyond me…). So I’ll play something energizing today to give me the will to parallel park. Wish me luck… Loud Places by Jamie xx (featuring Romy) from the album In Colour, 2015.


Today’s Track – Bittersweet Loving, Deee-Lite

Oh, why not. Let’s flashback to, well… a bouncier time, with a bit of dancy pop to energize this chilly fall day. Bittersweet Loving by Deee-Lite from the album Dewdrops in the Garden, 1994.



Today’s Track – Spiritual High, Moodswings & Chrissie Hynde

This song always reminds me of the fabulous NYC apartment of Bridget Fonda’s character in the movie Single White Female. And since I was just in NYC christening a dear friend’s fabulous new digs, I thought it was apropos. Spiritual High by Moodswings and Chrissie Hynde from the album Moodfood, 1992.


Today’s Track – Feeling Alive, Lasgo

I’m exploring Antwerp, Belgium today – a spot in the universe where I’ve never been before. Why does that feel so good? I find the adventure of it all totally inspiring (and the shopping? Well, you’ll have to wait for that…)! So today a bit of Belgian music is in order, I believe. Feeling Alive (radio edit) – the single – by Lasgo, 2013.

Today’s Track – Don’t Let It Bring You Down, Annie Lennox

I was clicking around from station to station (as you do when you know there’s nothing on TV you actually want to watch, but the eternal optimist within believes if you change channels enough, something fascinating will ultimately appear), when I stumbled on American Beauty. To be clear, that’s a movie I absolutely detest; but the soundtrack – barely audible in the background – held my attention. Softly mesmerizing. What is that song? Why do I know that music? Is that Annie Lennox? I couldn’t make out the lyrics, and a quick Shazam provided the helpful information that is was the movie American Beauty (which, by the way, does not appear to have a soundtrack that includes this song). But through the wonders of the interwebs, I found it nonetheless. Yeah, we all need a reminder of her message every once in a while. Don’t Let It Bring You Down by Annie Lennox from the album Medusa, 1994.


Today’s Track – Inevitable, Scissor Sisters

A summery tune to put a bit of breeze into this steamy day. Inevitable by Scissor Sisters from the album Magic Hour, 2012.



Today’s Track – American Dream, Jakatta

I thought a peppy dose of aptly named chill (yes, that’s a thing) might be a nice way to kick off the holiday weekend. American Dream by Jakatta from the album Chilled (by Ministry of Sound), 2015.
