Music Monday Top 5

Hey Folks,

I've decided to do a weekly Top 5 every Monday for Music Monday.

These are not new songs, though some maybe (it's doubtful). These are not the best of the best. These are probably not even songs you've heard before (at least not all 5, that'd be crazy).

These are the top 5 songs of my week. Song that for whatever reason stuck out, resonated, pulled at my heart strings, got stuck in my head or just popped up randomly - like when I was doing a photo shoot and iTunes shuffled over and the model went "I love this song" and I was so shocked she'd heard of it we talked about The New Pornographers for at least 20 minutes.

These are Musics!

5) Ninja Sex Party - No Reason Boner
Why: I love these guys, they just started a channel on youtube and they caught me with their first song. This one just came out - so what better way to start a top 5 list then with some funny stuff and ninjas!

4) - The Mountain Goats - This Year
: I Don't have heroes. And I'm not exactly sure I have idols. I do have people I look at and respect Conan O'brien, Joey Ramone, Larry Damore... So when John Ross Bowie (a former improv teacher of mine) posted this in his blog I listened.

Plus, I love me some good irony, desperation and Irish lilt.

3) Pegboy -
: Look I just can't do the FIRST music top five list and leave these guys off. They are my favorite band of all time. There are many close seconds but no band has inspired me on so many levels. My dream one day is to direct a music video for these guys. but until then I'll just promote them as much as I can.

2) The New Pornographers - Mutiny, I Promise You
Why: This is actually NOT the song I was talking about in the intro. But the song we ended up talking about because of the other song & a conversation about Dr. Parnassus. I love this video's style (both Visually and it's sense of humor and story).

1) The Hold Steady - One For The Cutters

Why: This one's actually still stuck in my head right now. It's a chilling song not just because of the lyrics; which spin a tale of lethargic accountability and confused morality. But also a creepy harpsichord accompaniment.

Stay Strong,
