3 Songs I Can’t Listen To
August 6, 2012 § 1 Comment
Last year, I made a list of songs to listen to while I work. This year I’ve got 3 songs I can’t listen to at work. They’ve got me moving and grooving so that whatever it is that I am writing trails off the page. The problem is that I’m not just unproductive for the 3 to 4 minutes of the song; I end up being unproductive for a good half hour as I play these over and over.
Nick Waterhouse’s “(If) You Want Trouble” is one of many on his album with an old R&B sound.
“Lovin’ You, Baby” by Charles Bradley is just dang good.
It’s a change of pace, but Lykke Li’s song “I Know Places” is gripping. I listen to it over and over.
Some days, the music comes first.
