It’s been awhile, hasn’t it? What with Current Affairs, both at home and abroad, maintaining a culture blog felt…small somehow. Let me know in the comments if you run a culture blog and feel/felt the same way. But I love doing these “scrapbook” posts, so without further ado, here’s what I was listening to last month. It’s a mini list this time, but let’s dive in.
I had “I Eat Boys” on repeat actually. It’s this cheerful little ditty that has major Jennifer’s Body vibes. “Want You Like That” was a recommendation from my roommate. Looks like this was something of a Peter Gabriel month as well. “Sledgehammer” is catchy and has pretty ridiculously suggestive lyrics. Sexy songs these days are much more overt; let’s see what you can do with fruitcakes and airplanes.
“Two Points for Honesty” shows me veering into angsty territory. I really should do a Throwback Thursday post about it. It majorly takes me back to college. (Or perhaps that’s not a time I’d like to remember? Interesting tension there.)
Prince provides a nice palette cleanser to the above (and alliteration as well). “When Doves Cry” is a dance song with deeper themes. No wonder Purple Rain is one of the best-selling soundtrack albums of all time.
What are you listening to these days?
