“Fool for Love” Lord Huron. As the comments section on YouTube reminded me, Girls Season 5 featured this song. Girls tends to have excellent music choices for which we can thank Michael Penn.
“Dance, Rascal Dance” Baby Goya (a.k.a. Jack Antonoff, a.k.a. the Bleachers guy who has been featured before) “Is that Jack Antonoff?” I asked the empty house while watching the movie Hello My Name is Doris. And it was! He plays a hip musical artist and has a few scenes, which were amusing. But you should watch this video because you get to see Sally Field’s amazing outfits.
In other music news, I was charmed by this story about the Killer’s song “Mr. Brightside.” It seems I’m not the only person who likes it. It’s been on the UK top 100 for 11 of the last 13 years. “Mr Brightside” Will Never Die and Here’s Why.
It’s a 2:35 minute story and worth a listen.
Hello from the future! It’s mid-September, 2017 where I am. The person I was in June doesn’t know this, but at some point in July or August, I’m going to discover Mr. Money Mustache (more on that later) realize I have a debt emergency (more on that later) and stop buying stuff. So! As of some point in the future, I will not be purchasing songs until I have emerged from my debt emergency. But I am writing this June post from the future. What should I do about purchasing the song of the month, which was one of the original points of Song of the Month?
Instead! I will begin a YouTube playlist featuring all the songs of the month. Here’s a link, though at this second, there are only two songs on it. I’ll go back and add more when I have a little more time.
Further update! I will figure out how to share the playlist later and then post the link. There is not an obvious method that I can see.
