1. "Fix You" by Coldplay
True story: this recently became the most played song on my iTunes list. It used to be a different song, but somehow, that one was wiped out and now it says I've listened to it 3 times, which is a boldfaced lie. But for now, this beautiful piece of music is the number one most played track on Ye Old Music Playing Machine. As I'm typing and listening, I already regret not getting tickets for their show here in MN this summer. I think they look pretty amazing live, based on the videos I've seen. Next time.
2. Florence + the Machine.
Confession: I don't own any of these albums yet. I'm not sure why I hesitated on buying the first one, Lungs. And I'm pretty sure I'm in love with all the new songs I've heard from the sophomore release, Ceremonials, so I should just go and buy it already. I'm not sure which track I like better right now, "No Light, No Light" or "Shake it Out", but here's the video for the latter.
3. "For Whom the Bell Tolls" by Metallica
I wasn't much of a Metallica fan growing up, but the Black album (was that the official name?) with "Enter Sandman" was pretty sweet, as was the S&M album with the San Francisco Orchestra. But for this post, I'm going old school. I needed some rock and roll for my half marathon run list last year and AC/DC is sadly not on iTunes. But Metallica is and Boom! a happy music and running relationship was made. Somewhere around mile five I got into my groove and never looked back. This was a nice change to the pop tunes on my list. Listening to it while at my office desk doesn't have the same panache as it does when I'm running. Huh. I never noticed that until now.
How about you? What "F" music did I miss?
