I Want That For You

As y’all know I love my music. I have to have it. Which means when I can’t get data through my phone and can’t listen to my satellite radio, I get pissy. The way it’s been doing all week.

Music feeds my soul, fires my imagination and relaxes me. Even when it’s stuff that’s fast-paced and hectic sounding, sometimes it calms me. Which is why I need it at the Evil Day Job, dammit! *seethes* Of course, even though I don’t have my satellite radio, I still have music. I carry an MP3 player with me everywhere I go and have music on my phone that isn’t connected to the internet. But I like having variety, like being able to say “I’m kind of tired of Slipknot. How about some Niel Diamond?” What? How can you not like Neil Diamond?

Mostly though, I like my satellite radio because it allows me to discover new bands that aren’t on the local radio stations yet and probably never will be.  Like today’s group. 3 Pill Morning. There are a lot of bands with the number Three (3) in the name, but these guys have a great song I’m sharing with y’all today. I Want That For You is a song I crank up whenever it comes on because it has catchy vocals and sounds passionate. I’ve been listening to it a lot while writing Primal Flavor.

What do y’all think?

Diamonds in the Sky

If you’ve followed my blog for a while, you’ll remember that over the summer, I played song remakes. That was fun and weird at times. Some remakes should never be made while others eclipse the original.

I listen to my faithful satellite radio to and from the day job. I adorz it, precious. So when I hear a song that appeals to me, I listen for it. Today’s What’s Playing Wednesday song is one of those and then while listening to it one day, I realized it was a remake. Then a couple of days later, I caught the DJ talking about it.

Yes, this is a remake of Rihanna Diamonds. Don’t get up in arms about it. Fans of the superstar should see this as further proof that she’s a wonderful singer. Most of the time songs don’t get remade unless they’ve made an impact on the band/singer performing the remake.

So today I bring you Farewell 2 Fear’s Diamonds. Give it a listen and let me know what you think. I really like it.
