The Outsiders

 We're beautiful outsiders.  I'm over the moon that my most favorite lovely heart-stopping, throw myself on any stage or before any vehicle or sit in a room quietly absorbing the dull words of any historical muppet about the works of Butler and Anderson and how they came to be in the world and through the speakers of my most mundane life by being played on the actual... brace yourselves... the fucking R A D I O.

Suede // Outsiders // 2015

It's not real, right?  I'm fucking swooning;  never have actually heard a band I like, let alone LOVE on the fucking radio.  (obviously an exaggeration, but you understand) This is a goddamn joke.  I bow down to their guitar and vocals; like serpents around my throat,  Bernard and Brett wrap themselves around those delectable melodies.

My adoration is ridiculous: here, here, here, here, here , here, here
the rest is buried in my analog collection, Suede and Catherine Wheel are everything.

My dearest friend told me about her dream of The Sea last month.  She's the type that brings home finches the day I dream of them.   We are intertwined.  I've never shared this song with anyone but her until today; it's a dream I've had for the last twenty years.

Stark, protective, fierce, hiss.

Bend Your Brain

This is an amazing sound to any happy day; it's an enormous doo-dah-doo for me whenever I hear it (wish you could hear me say it).

Beautiful love effervescence.

I've been waiting for so long
To come here now and sing this song
Don't be fooled by what you see
Don't be fooled by what you hear

This is a song to all of my friends
They take the challenge to their hearts
Challenging preconceived ideas
Saying goodbye to long standing fears

Don't crack up
Bend your brain
See both sides
Throw off your mental chains

I don't wanna be hip and cool
I don't wanna play by the rules
Not under the thumb of the cynical few
Or laden down by the doom crew

Take Me Down

Dreamy, murky lyrics and crystalline heights.  All my favorite things.

Chromatics // Shadow // 2015

It reminds me of this favorite gem.   Do you hear it too?

Slowdive // Crazy For You // Pygmalion // 1995

This Is My Life

Matt Berninger - I love everything about him.  You already know that. (here, here, here , here and here)

El Vy // Return to the Moon // 2015

It's so fucking popular right now.
Dinosaur Jr.  // Feel the Pain // 1994

This song follows me no matter where I go.
So lame.  It is what it is.

Gerry Rafferty // Right Down the Line // 1978
