Young Blood - The Naked and Famous
This song is simply amazing. I discovered it during finals week about two months ago. Since then it has become the 3rd most played song in my library, no small feat considering other songs have had years to amass plays. The lyrics are good, too:
We lie beneath the stars at night
Our hands gripping each other tight
You keep my secrets hope to die
Promises, swear them to the sky
The bittersweet between my teeth
Trying to find the in-betweens
Fall back in love eventually
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
The music video is somewhat lame, but the song is so good I can look the other way. Definitely go and listen to this song right now!

My other, my joy

These songs you sing
as you waltz her up the stairs
You can listen to it here.
Also, if you like their sound, I'd recommend checking out the song How Your Heart is Wired from their first album. I actually played that song more up front, but Nightwatchmen grew on me more. A lot more.
I know what you are thinking: "The Killers are sooo 2004... or maybe 2006!" Well, I've always liked The Killers, but I think I got a little burned out on them. As such, I didn't really look into getting their third studio album, Day & Age. Over the past year, I have found that there are a few tracks that the radio stations never picked up on. The hidden gems on the album are This Is Your Life and I Can't Stay. I realize that if you are a true Killers fan you probably already know what I'm telling you. In the chance you are like me, missing a song here or there, I'm trying to get you back on track.
Gravity Happens - Kate Voegele
So, for those of you that have known me for a while, you might remember that I've had an obsession with singer/songwriter Kate Voegele for many years now. If Taylor Swift was a brunette, she'd still fall short. I've even stalked her at a concert full of teenage girls... I'm pretty sure I was the only single guy in the place. Anyway, Kate just released her third album and it's really solid. I'm glad to report that she has continued making music that sounds like her. Too frequently, a record label tries to dictate an artist's sound (like the monstrosity that was
Well, that's all for now. I spent a decently long time on this post, so please let me know what you think of the songs. Also, is the formatting over the top?
