    As a general rule, I don’t listen to pop. But ‘Rather Be’ by Clear Bandit and Jess Glynn is the best song I’ve heard this year.

    Far too much love for this song right now. The whole thing, song and video, are just too dorky for words.

    Just got back from a TobyMac concert… best concert ever. This won’t mean anything to people who weren’t DC Talk fans, but he sang Jesus Freak!!! I’ve been wanting to hear that in concert since I was, like, seven. I screamed so loud I almost lost my voice, and I think the ladies sitting in front of us thought we were literally insane.

    Haha. I’ve gone to a couple Tobymac concerts and when I was in elementary I saw a dc Talk concert. My memory is pretty fuzzy- 94 or 95, I think.

    Speaking of which I just Steve Taylor in Seattle. He was another closing band at that same music fest in 94 or 95 and then he stopped making albums for 20 years. It was super fun rocking out with 100 other Steve Taylor fans- we are few, but he rocked just as hard as he ever did, leaping around the stage. Oh- if you know dc Talk/ Tobymac- you’d probably know Newsboys- Steve Taylor’s drummer is Peter Furler.

    So in response to the building Star Wars hype, this has been doing the rounds again. I’m getting delicious early-2000s nostalgia fuzzies. I used to have this entire thing memorised, which for a hearing-impaired kid with no transcript and 2000s-era computer speakers and hearing aid tech is an impressive feat.

    Magic System’s remix of “Sweet Fanta Diallo”.

    The original song is about “Fanta Diallo,” a nurse who a man at a psychiatric hospital accredited his well-being to. There was no nurse called Fanta Diallo, but a song was written about her in hommage to her (she was believed to be an angel by a lot of people).

    It’s just the happiest song.

    We compose short little pieces in my music theory class, so while I was bored today I starting writing out this Irish-inspired tune for violin. One of my favorite types of music to play on the violin, I always love the spirit of Irish pieces.

    Not music, but still audio entertainment, so I’m posting this here.

    I’m going to recommend the Black Tapes podcast. The basic pitch is “NPR meets the X-Files,” but with paranormal stuff instead of aliens. None of the “cases” ever really get solved (definitively proven one way or another), but there’s an on-going plot about the history of the paranormal investigator they follow around, which I think is the real draw. The first 12-episode season wrapped a few days ago, so now might be a good time to check it out.

    I want to see more musicals. I’ve only seen a handful… I need to coerce my sister into going to New York City again so we can see something. We were going to see Phantom of the Opera last time, but couldn’t get any good seats (we’re cheap so we bought tickets the day of), so we went to see South Pacific instead (and got pretty amazing seats, actually).

    I’m still ecstatic that I got to see the Spider-Man musical, though. There’s always going to be another chance to see Wicked or whatever, but that was a once in a lifetime opportunity.

    IAM’s album “L‘├ęcole du micro d’argent” (School of the Silver Microphone). Apparently it’s supposed to be the best French hip-hop album ever made, and I’m really digging late 90s rap right now. Very French in that most of the raps are about the state of the city of Marseilles, and the name IAM is actually a reference to the I Am a Man protests.

    All the best songs were written for women. I listened to the sountrack for Wicked the other day, and this morning without really thinking about it I started singing I’m Not The Girl, until I realised that a scruffy 27-year-old man singing “he could be that boy / but I’m not that girl” in falsetto is not exactly a good image.

    You can sing whatever you please. Joan Baez sings a lot of songs with a male narrator. Sometimes it doesn’t work, like with “The Band Played Waltzing Matilda”, but often it does, like in “Lilly of the West” or “Long Black Veil”
