You can tell a lot about someone by the type of music they listen to (can you though?). Hit shuffle on your ipod/phone/itunes/media player and write down the first 20 songs. Then pass this on to at least 10 people. One rule: no skipping. (I added my iTunes rating and play counts of the songs for fun, so that’s optional.)

Okay, so I started trying to learn French a couple months ago, and I’m only really halfway through one unit on Rosetta Stone, so I know colours and how to count to twelve (barely) but the other day I thought I’d rewatch that adorable Capucine video from some years back and it all sounded like gibberish to me still and gave me a headache. This has nothing to do with this song, which is great and is kind of upbeat but also really sad and a bit dark?? Take a look at the lyrics translation: Oh, Ava, you read those words over and over again / From three-sentence-long letters which tear your age off you / You know he’s a coward / But Ava, he just thinks you’re a fool When he kisses you, you feel like living again / But he’s really just renting his bed. AMAZING.
The third in an indeterminate series of primesassy musical ladies I’ve been listening to lately.
Velvet Elvis by Alex Winston
Here’s another prime sassy lady. I have no real idea what this song is about but it is just so dang catchy. But When I feel your velvet, I can’t help it/Hold your frame, whisper your name is a string of euphemisms, right? That’s how I’m reading it. I loved Alex Winston when I first heard her song Sister Wife, which is a great song if you should ever be conscripted into a polygamous commune. Keep it in your back pocket!
CockNBullKid is one of the many sassy ladies occupying prime positions in my iTunes of late. I love this song mostly for the start: London I love you but you’re bringing me down/ in that special way only you know how. Also, amazing fairy lights crown at 2:28, if you’re into that sort of thing.
