A love affair with life… and the occasional interest

Arcade Fire, Judas, and Elvis Duran

My one hour drive to work has found me listening to the morning radio for the first time since those dreaded 7:45 morning college classes. Without Elvis Duran I don’t think I could find the energy or even wake up enough for the workday! Elvis, Carolina, and Danielle are the coffee to my mornings.

Anyway, a couple of weeks ago I fell in love with Arcade Fire. I found a band that just like Radiohead, teaches me not only how to live but also how to love. I’ve heard of them for a couple years now but after hearing their song Wake Up in Where The Wild Things Are and their new song “The Suburbs”, I found a place for them in my heart. The lyrics for Wake up are probably the most touching and beautiful I’ve heard in a while.

Judas, Lady Gaga’s new monster creation of a video just came out this week. It amazes me how after so much creative art and imagery she still finds a way to renew herself and bring out a new hit. The leather jacketed Apostles just kills me!  Can’t wait for this at the clubs!

And finally Rihanna’s new hit, “Man Down”, a song I first heard on my way out of work, is the perfect way to bring in the coming summer. The way she uses Caribbean reggae is just perfect…  A nice tropical drink, a handsome guy on your side, and songs like this playing the night away at some exotic tropical beach and I am in  heaven =)
