Music Monday: 90s Throwback to My Favorite Band (Then) - Garbage

This is a 20+ year throwback to my absolute FAVORITE band/musician prior to Lana.  I'm talking about Garbage, people! You know?! Shirley Manson and all her grunginess!  Sigh! Back to the 90s! The best decade IMO.  I used to listen to that first (self-titled) Garbage CD over and over and over and over and over and over and over again in high school.  And then! One of my other favorite things back then came out, and that's the movie, Romeo and Juliet with Leonardo DiCaprio! This movie killed me! But that's another topic for another day. And the soundtrack was really good too, especially because Garbage was on there with the song #1 Crush.  All their stuff was just as dramatic as life seemed in my head back then, you know what I mean.  The teen years, ha! Looking back on it and listening to it now is funny because they're just so dramatic, and I just don't relate anymore (I mean, when you're a teenager, you totally feel like you can relate to this because EVERYthing is just SOOOOOO intense, right?).  I still like the songs, but they're totally made for that time period of your life.  

So, without further ado, I'm giving you my favorite song from that first Garbage album and #1 Crush from the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack.  You're welcome!

Music Monday: New Lana del Rey Single! Love. No, that's the name of it.

Okay, so due to the insanely gorgeous and strangely warm February weather, I was going to go with a summery and sunny kind of song, BUT....I just found out (thanks, Nicole!) that Lana has a new song out, officially I mean, so I can't just not include that today! The name of the song is Love, and it is her newest single since 2015, so I was super excited.  Well, I gave it a listen without the video.  I gotta say, initially, I didn't love it.  It's different than her songs that I love best.  But, I've listened to it a couple times since and it has actually grown on me.  It's got those vintage-y types of vibes that she is known for, but in a different way than her Ultraviolence album.  THEN, today I watched the video for the song.  And I think it solidified my feelings in the Like It category.  Can't say I love it yet, but give it a little time, and I may upgrade it to Love It.  Of course I will, Lana is my girl!  Give it a listen and see what you think!  Below is the video for it.

Ahhhhhh, it's been a nice break! But I've got some new posts coming soon!

Ahhhh, so I've been on a writing break because going back to non-holiday-time life takes some adjusting! Kids back in school....well, eventually.  Kids sick as dogs and coughing in my face and using my shirt as a tissue for their runny noses....gross.  Back to work (BLAH! no explanation needed).....Back to routines.

Well, now I'm back to life (baaaaack to life... baaaack to reality...who sang that?) and I've got some posts coming up. 

See you soon!
