Top Ten Thursday: Wedding Reception Favoritas

So, I have been traveling the past three weekends to various weddings in St. Louis and Omaha, and thought that after all the weddings I have been to this season, that we could do a list of top wedding songs. Now, you may question lack of slow songs on this list. That is because weddings are for party-dance, and if you are not the one getting married, emotions should be left in the dust.

Feist Review: Metals

Metals
Today we are gifted with a new release from female singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist/Canadian Leslie Feist, or better know as simply, Feist. Unlike most “hosers” from Canada – eh, Feist has a warmly beautiful face, a chillingly passionate voice, and a soul. (No offense to our massive Canadian fan base) She also creepily looks like my friend Ashley:

Top Ten Thursday: Television Theme Songs for the Ages

It’s Fall, and Fall is somewhat synonymous with television. New series are starting up for the first time, old beloved series are picking right back up where they left off, and some series that have over-stayed their welcome are still sticking around to push us even further over the edge.

Are you at the Pizza Hut?  Are you at the Taco Bell? Or perhaps, the combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell? Can white people go outside without getting a disease? Have Glenn Beck, LL Cool J, or Toby Keith“ sat down yet” … man? These are all questions the Brooklyn-based rap duo (trio when you include the hype man) Das Racist has addressed and answered for us in the past. I can’t express to just how much I have appreciated these issues being resolved.

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks Review: Mirror Traffic

Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks
Mirror Traffic
Being born in 1986, I was not privy to the faces of the independent music scene until many years after the band Pavement helped break it into popularity. When I discovered that there was indeed other music in the early 90’s other than Gin Blossoms and whatever 14 wonderful tracks graced the silver lining under the orange and slightly less orange rings to mySpace Jam soundtrack, I was shocked … and thrilled!  I didn’t have to listen to “Hey Jealousy” for the 800th time.
