20 August 2014 - Song #20

The first Cross Country practice is tomorrow. It’s the only thing running through my mind right now. I used to listen to Brand New a lot during my freshman and sophomore years. I remember listening to Me vs Maradona vs Elvis on the bus to track meets. During a long XC race, I wanted The Quiet Things No One Every Knows to play in my head, but I had to force it. I’m going to bed now. I need to get up early tomorrow.

What You Need (The Weeknd cover) - BANKS

yeah i know, three BANKS songs in a row to start off the new year is awfully repetitive but when i decided to start posting a song a day, i told myself that i would only post what i was genuinely obsessed with on that day and ever since seeing her on NYE, i’ve been listening to her music exclusively. i love this cover she did for the BBC Live Lounge because her voice sounds so dark and mysterious and kinda sexy. it’s been stuck in my head on a loop all day today so obviously couldn’t not pick this as my song of the day. i’m so happy i’ve finally found a female artist that really makes me feel empowered when i listen to her stuff.

Jonathan has been recording a song a day since ’09 — and he finally scored a hit 

The Supreme Court decision in the recent Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. sparked major controversy throughout the nation, but it also inspired a viral moment. Last week, a man posted a simply recorded song that he created from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s scathing 35-page dissenting opinion. Social media and news outlets such as BuzzFeed and the Washington Post glommed onto the video. Salon covered it too, with a viral article titled “Someone just turned Justice Ginsburg’s blistering Hobby Lobby dissent into a song.”

But that lucky “someone” behind our latest RBG moment has actually been one of the most quietly insistent presences in American history and music for the last half-decade. Jonathan Mann has been quirkily documenting these years through a song every day and posting each on YouTube since 2009. This one was lucky No. 2,007.

Someday This Will All Be Yours

it’s not easy to look at
it’s not easy to hold
it’s not easy to think about
but darling if you’re bold
you will come out of the water
all sparkling and clean
dressed in the kind of freedom
they print pictures of in magazines
you’ll be smiling and waving
and having the time of your life

when you wake up in the morning
you’ll hear words from when you were just a girl
something your parents told you
when you were still new to this world
it was happy and hopeful and carefree and kind
it was worth smiling about
it was something they whispered into your ear
that you forgot until now

“someday someday someday this will all be yours
when your legs are long and strong
and you get up from all fours
when you’ve found that great white hope
that you thought that you forgot
it’ll be a little thing you thought you’d long since lost
the little light we put in you
the day that you were born
and though you may not have it now
someday it will be yours.”

someday someday someday this will all be yours
someday someday someday this will all be yours
someday someday someday this will all be yours
someday someday someday this will all be yours

i wanted to walk home from work today
but it was supposed to rain
so i paid 2.25
for the subway
i listened to “angel gone” and “honey pot”,
it was a good end
to an ok day

first storm of the summer

i was anticipating
darkening sky crash boom then candles
cause each year these scenes repeat
whether in a city or in the country

six years ago,
may 5th,
you me and margarita lips
we sat on the roof in the rain for a while

the first storm of the summer
ooh ooh ohh
first storm of the summer
it didn’t come
for me today
