Maggie’s Pick 5.4.2016: “August” by Bear Trap + 2 Star Wars songs

Hi kids. I’m blogging again.

Adulthood really hit me hard and completely knocked me off the blogging bandwagon. I’ve been wanting to get back to arbitrarily selecting songs for days recently, but early May is a minefield of holidays (May Day, primary Tuesday, May the Fourth, Cinco de Mayo).

As kind of an ironic nod to the fact that I haven’t blogged since August, I picked a song called August. After this, I’m going to try to Pick songs that are May-themed, but this month will probably also be kinda LDR-themed, as my life continues to be LDR-themed.

Anyways, song:

This song is better listened to with earbuds than speakers. Not sure why.

Also, it’s May the Fourth be with you (yay puns), so I have this, which brings me endless amusement when I listen to it:

And this, also funny, which reminds me of high school:

Yay blogging.


Maggie’s Pick 8.30.2015: Symphonic Sunday: “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell

Switching things up a little bit.

Also RIP Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. I don’t make a note of all of the deceased artists’ recordings I Pick (plus I’m not sure how often it happens), but both Tammi’s and Marvin’s were particularly tragic and far too soon.

Maggie’s Pick 8.28.2015: Frisky Friday: “Brass In Pocket” by The Pretenders

“‘Cause I’m gonna make you see
There’s nobody else here
No one like me
I’m special, so special
I gotta have some of your attention”

This more specifically applies to my LDR and who I think of when I hear this song, but still picking it. Super frisky.

Maggie’s Pick 8.26.2015: Wishful Wednesday: “Wherever You Will Go” by The Calling

“If I could, then I would
I’ll go wherever you will go
Way up high or down low
I’ll go wherever you will go”

Classic LDR. I was convinced I’d already Picked this, but it turns out that I just quoted it with a poem sometime.

“Run away with my heart
Run away with my hope
Run away with my love”
