Music Club

I have always loved music. From my first little green record player playing Donny Osmond albums, I have been obsessed with listening to music. Hopefully my Music Club is a chance for me to share songs that I love and hopefully help you discover new music or bring back amazing memories. Click here for my list to date.

Pete Townshend “Let My Love Open the Door”

Pete TownshendMy brothers are awesome! All three of us love music, and anything to do with The Who will always take me back to my days when we were all under the same roof. This Pete Towshend song does that. Oh, and it also reminds me of Keith Urban because it was always the last song playing before he takes the stage. Released 1979.

Melissa Ethridge “You Can Sleep While I Drive”

Melissa EthridgeI drove a little red Plymouth Cricket all through university. I loved my Cricket! I used to make mixed tapes (see my blog from Day 13) and Melissa Ethridge was a favourite. I used to drive around listening to her in the Cricket.

She played in Victoria last month and I was really disappointed to miss her. I hope she comes back.

She has lots of songs that I love, but here is one of them.

Darius Rucker “Wagon Wheel”

Darius RuckerI haven’t put a lot of country on here yet… but its coming! I’m no longer in the closet with my love for country music. And how can you not like Darius Rucker, of Hootie and the Blowfish fame. Now he’s a country star!

Fink “Looking Too Closely”

Fink Looking Too CloselyMy family and I are addicted to the show Suits so when this song played it became one of my favourites. It fit the scene perfectly. So now as we wait for next season of Suits I can just keep listening to this song. Best thing is the rest of his album is excellent too. It is awesome discovering new musicians to follow (new to me that is). He’s playing in Vancouver tonight. Wish I was there! Released 2014.

Coldplay “Fix You”

Coldplay Fix YouWe took the boys to see Coldplay in concert in 2009, which was their first big concert. Besides trying to find napkins to stuff in Brayden’s ears cause it was too loud, and watching both pull their shirts over their noses because the people in front of us were smoking and this was “disgusting”, it was an amazing concert. I love “Fix You” for many reasons, but the lyrics are incredible. And hearing it live was special, especially sitting with my boys. Released 2005.

The Cure “Underneath the Stars”

The Cure Underneath the StarsI love songs that take me away from reality. Those songs that would never make the top 10 on the radio because they are too out there. And if you are looking for a way out there artist then you just need to look at Robert Smith, lead singer of The Cure. They have been around since 1976 (although Smith is the only consistent band member). They have a variety of songs, but this one I enjoy because I can imagine the stars above me when I hear it. Released 2008.

Live version video (although must say recorded version of song is better)
