I Don't Feel Like Dancing

Since I am depressed and wailing like a banshee at night until I pass out from exhaustion, I decided to indulge in buying CDs and discovering new music. There is nothing like a good CD to get you out of a funk for awhile.

First - go here: http://myspace.com/scissorsisters and stream their new CD. It's disco-tastic and "I Don't Feel Like Dancing" is the most peppy song about just wanting to stay your ass at home. I can not WAIT to see them live at Virgin Festival this Saturday along with RHCP, The Who, Gnarls Barkley, The Killers, Kasabian, Brazilian Girls, and Gnarls Barkley!

Second - Van Morrison's Moondance. Where the EFF has this CD been all my life? Seriously, I have listened to it non-stop. So bittersweet really. Songs like "Crazy Love" and "These Dreams of You" hit close to home. But I have decided that if I do someday get married (I seriously don't think I ever will) "Moondance" will be my wedding song. It's just totally me.

Third - Maroon 5- Songs About Jane. I know I'm about 2 yrs too late on buying this. I've heard the CD lots of times but never owned it. Now it's mine and having a CD about a bad break-up is good right now.

Lastly - I know I've already discussed Justin Timberlake in my previous post but I am really digging this CD. "FutureSex/Lovesound" (track #1) gets the CD HOT right from the start. "Love Stoned/I Think She Knows Me" has such a sweet little beat. And "Until The End of Time" surprised me the most, sounding like some straight up Jodeci. Mmmmmm, so groovy. Love it! Grab a lover. Grab a random. Grab anybody and get down on it!

I love finding new music. Of course, I found Snow Patrol, and we all know how that turns out!

If you love Moondance, I highly recommend Tupelo Honey as your next Van Morrison cd. Plenty of gems on that one, too.

I can listen to Songs About Jane from front to back without skipping a song - a true testament to an album given my musical pickiness. That said, where the crap are those guys? They had one other song that I know of ("Woman" on the Spiderman 2 soundtrack), and a couple live albums but nothing new.

since i am going through the same thing - feel your pain and living through music (sad especially). The fray has some great songs, lifehouse (although only I seem to love them) http://www.lifehouse-media.com for free stuff, listen to what happens next or everything, and the old santana album. My fav on that one is the steve tyler - 'anything to just feel better' as that is where my heart is right now!

Hang in there!!

Wow, you really have problems letting go, huh?
Be an iron rod! You're inflexible. Wailing before falling asleep at night?!?!?! I'm crying right now!

Man the Maroon 5 CD is a GREAT break up CD...I bought it like circa 2002 haha.

Also good - Linkin Park Hybrid Theory..."Place for my Head" and "Pushing Me Away", "One Step Closer" and "With You" and of course "In the End"......all the screaming can make you feel better!

Seriously, I listened to both those CDs through my rough break up...

nube - work blows.

kathryn - i will def check that out.

I-66 - i smell a sophomore slump!

twoste - ok, maybe wailing is a strong term. but i am not ashamed of how i am dealing with this. i deserve to determine what is a reasonable amount of time for me to heal. so right now, no i am not an "iron rod." more like a limp noodle...lol
