I've been meaning to do this one FOREVER.

These are just songs I feel like sharing. My taste in music is kind of all over the place; I don't follow bands or artists; I don't really listen to the radio; I love basically all genres; and I don't really do albums — I do music on pretty much exclusively a song-by-song basis. And I love music. I really do. I'm completely untutored in it and never have the first idea what I'm talking about, but I can't stand a single day without music.

So I want to share it.

It takes just one of three things: great/interesting (to me) music, great/interesting (to me) lyrics, or being infernally catchy.

I want to make clear that you are welcome to discuss problematic aspects of lyrics, artists, production companies and processes, music videos, or anything else connected to these songs — I suspect I'll be sharing them largely without commentary but sharing a song does not mean I endorse everything about it, and I would love to learn more about how these songs operate out in the world.

Corrections to lyrics are also welcome — I do my best, but I have some auditory processing issues, so transcription is really hard and error-prone for me.

That said, let's go!

Part of the Song a Day Project!

I had always meant to start the project with this song, as it's so appropriate. That almost worked out, but the way it fell out was pretty great anyway.

Between the song and the video, this song was always full of summer for me. So now, as the weather's starting to turn for some, and summer's wrapping up for others, I think it's a great time for this one. Everyone looks so gorgeous in the vid; I love it.
