Song of the Week-ish

Alright, so I am semi-copying Aunt Tami's Photo of the Week-ish, except mine is a song.  :)
And this is it....

Amos Lee - Colors

I don't know what has come over me lately...  I am just not that into the "fella" music, as Taylor would say.  Taylor thinks "fella" music is all the music that came out in the years Sloan grew up... all the way up to now.  ....As in, music that has come out within the last 10 years or so.  :)  In my mind, it is anything that is a whole heck of a lot better then what Taylor listens to, since "fella" music is my music too.  (But we don't talk about that much).  :)    Anyways, I have gotten side tracked.  (As usual).  As I was saying, my taste in music has been slowly changing, until I don't really recognize it anymore.  I don't know what happened.  Jazz is now one of my favorite sounds.  I will hear a song and fall in love with it and find out it is Jazz.  Not the super Jazz, although I can appreciate what talent it takes to make music like that.  No, easy jazz... if that is a thing.  I don't really know.  It is all new to me.  I don't even know that many jazz singers, but I like the sound when I hear it.....
Jazz isn't my only favorite kind of music.  I think I am pretty well rounded when it comes to music.  It just surprised me when I looked at my playlist and I had just under 20 jazz songs.  (That may not seem like a lot, but I thought I hated that kind of music, so it is surprising).  I even got Lily to like Billy Holiday...  and that is a really old sound.  But she actually requests it. 
Every now and then I find a song that matches what I imagine my soul would sound like if it came out in music....  and this song by Amos Lee seems to be it right now.  Sort of melancholy, but hopeful.  :)
I wonder what Sloan's favorite song is right now.  :)


  1. I am glad that you listen to music and then tell me the good stuff- without you I would be lost... can you make me a mixed cd? Or 3 or 5?

  2. I love, love , love Amos Lee. And it is not "fella" music! I am 10 years older than Sloan and I love all the stuff he does. Taylor just needs to get with the time and modernize his tastes :) If you like Amos, try Brett Dennen, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson (of course), Regina Spektor, and my fav- Ingrid Michaelson. I am actually going with Dan to an acoustic concert of hers on the 26th. Oh and my favorite Amos song is "Shout out Loud" I love it.

  3. Thanks Adrianne. I will definitely look those up on itunes!
    Cheryl, I tried to make CD's for mom and dad for their trip and they ended up hating them. That might mean you will love them though... :)
    So you can probably take theirs. Haha
