Love Songs

In general I am not one for Valentines. This morning I listened to NPR’s ‘Songs You Love to Love’ segment, the chat made me laugh a lot. I also love the Bright Eyes song First Day of My Life that weirdly made number one. It’s also good to know that other people would also skip Ed Sheeran (yes I’m a music snob, I’m over it). This song reminds me of being young and full of hope.

Luluc: For Car Alarms in the Morning

I’m a morning person. I really mean that, I love the morning.  I even love that I have to nap later, naps to me are just as good as the mornings.

This morning I woke up at 6.30 because of a car alarm outside my flat. The jarring sound that happened over and over, so I shoved in my headphones and flicked through NPR’s latest first album listens. The first one I found that struck a gentle chord was ‘Passerby’ by a duo called Luluc – wonderfully soothing old fashioned song craft.

Sometimes I can do the embedding of Spotify albums thing, sometimes I can’t. Today is a lucky day.
