So, that's my big story about how I became an accidental Switchfoot fan. Here are some flash stories about why I'm listening to some other great artists you may love too!
Mindy Gledhill - Anchor
The song Anchor was on an episode of Bones and I fell in love with it. After previewing the album snippets on iTunes I knew I had to have the whole thing. It's such a great addition to my playlist!
Stacy Clark - Connect the Dots
I SHAZAM'd her song Touch & Go in a store at the outlet mall. The whole album is golden. Thank God for phone apps! :)
Erin McCarley - Love, Save the Empty
iTunes suggested this because I bought Stacy Clark's Connect the Dots. They were so right! I LOVE it!
The Civil Wars - Barton Hollow
I don't make a habit out of watching the country music video channel, but out at the lake, it's pretty much the only channel that works. When I was there almost a year ago, this amazing song called Barton Hollow came up, and I googled the band on my phone. Turns out, this duo is one half Joy Williams, and I was a fan of hers from WAY back. I'm an even bigger fan now. These two are amazing. Check out their Christmas songs too. WOW.
Jem - Finally Woken
When I worked in a cubicle a couple years ago, I often traded iPods with the guy that faced me (we used our OWN earbuds, don't worry!), and this album was on his. I still love it... even though it makes me picture sitting in a cubicle sometimes. hahaha.
Riverside by Agnes Obel
This song was on an episode of Revenge. It's gorgeous.
Trouble is a Friend by Lenka
From the movie Easy A. Such a fun song.
Girls Just Want To Have Fun - Glee
Did anyone else fall in love with Finn's rendition of this song? It's the way Greg Laswell sings it, as heard in the movie Confessions of a Shopaholic. I don't know what it is... but I LOVE this version.
Last but not least, the song getting the most love on my playlist right now is:
Safe & Sound by Taylor Swift featuring The Civil Wars
It's such a sweet song, and it makes me think of the relationship between Katniss and Prim.
So that's it for this edition. I hope I've introduced you to some new music!
Have you randomly run across your favorite songs too? How? And what are they?
