walk don’t run

It’s so muggy in Philadelphia today! It is starting to feel very summery outside and for some reason I just have this great song, Walk Don’t Run, by The Ventures stuck in my head! I came across this video of them performing the song live in 1960 – I’m pumped! You don’t always find clips like these! It’s a little blurry at times but the close ups of their faces while performing are so cute! They look nervous!
Anyway, great song, enjoy!

Today I heard "Walk, Don't Run" on telphone call holding music. I was excited.! Took me a few minutes to bring the title to mind; we had the Ventures LP way back then; I can still picture the album cover. I looked it up on line and here I am. My sound card is out in my computer, but I enjoyed the video. Those were the days! Good music.

cool! I never knew the name of this song! + i like how the drummer is in the front, instead of stuck in the back like todays bands! ;) weheartfreepeople!

Check out this super cute new video from Company of Thieves! It’s a take on some of the scenes from Rushmore which is fun, and the lead-singer Genevieve is wearing a Free People top for a lot of the video too! Enjoy!

Sucha good band! Im obsessed with watchin this video too...the way they did it is funny as hell and the songs amazing!

This is a great music video, on music (obviously) but also in style and concept. One thing that I particularly like about it is that seeing Rushmore is not necessary for enjoyment. So many times music videos play tribute to other videos or films but unless you've seen what they are referencing, the video means nothing. This on the other hand actually does operate on two levels.

I really enjoyed this video by Rainbow Arabia, especially for it’s colorfulness! It’s a fun dancey song too…

tone matrix

The screenshot below looks pretty unassuming, but I can assure you that those little squares are actually something awesome! The Tone Matrix is a sine wave synthesizer, the key word for us here being sythesizer, as in you make music with it! I can’t explain very well how it works or what it does exactly, but if you go play with it you will not be able to stop! Try it! I really think you guys will love this – enjoy!

I was in the store on 74th & 3rd in New York City. There was a song playing there and some of the lyrics were along the lines of "I've got you in my heart to make it all harder i will stay addicted to you"

Where she’s pulling him into the boat.

Congratulations to Alicia!
I like the romantic aspect of it, like the page when the girl comes and saves him from the water and when they’re on the island holding hands.
Congratulations to Kelsey!
I love old folk music like James Taylor and Joni Mitchell..
Hooray! And thank you again, to everyone, for participating! We will be doing another giveaway very soon- stay tuned!

Super duper smile. Free People + Lisa Hannigan = Buckets of Love Super duper smile. Free People + Lisa Hannigan = Buckets of Love <3

to kelsey: too bad Joni Mitchell and James Taylor aren't "old" folk music. they certainly fall in to the folk music category. If you'd really like to consider yourself a fan of "old" folk music, i suggest you look up Woody Guthrie.. because he is the closest to old we've got in terms of actual recorded folk music. the old stuff was never recorded, obviously. sorry for coming off snobbish.. but i had to say something. p.s. I do applaud your music taste.. Joni Mitchell is one of my biggest idols.

Remember this awesome music video by Lisa Hannigan that I posted a while back? The pop-up book is so cool, and the song is really sweet!

Well, I have some fun news! Lisa was so kind as to donate three t-shirts, three packets of adorable buttons, and three copies of her new album, Sea Sew, for me to give away to you! How awesome is that?! The stuff is all very cute too! And who doesn’t want a free new album?

So now is the fun part – the giveaway! For your chance to win a Lisa Hannigan t-shirt, album, and some buttons, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post and answer one of the following two questions:
What page in the pop-up book in the music video is your favorite?
or
What type of music is your favorite?
Three comments will be chosen at random, and if your comment is one of those chosen, you win! It’s just that easy! Don’t forget to include your email address with your comment, so that if you win I can contact you! I will announce the winners tomorrow evening! Yay! Good luck!
P.S. In Philadelphia? Don’t miss Lisa’s show at the World Cafe on this coming Thursday night! It’s an event not to be missed! See all her dates on her site!

I found the original music video for The Beach Boys’ song Wouldn’t It Be Nice and it makes me so happy, just like the song! It’s really cute and it looks like they’re having so much fun! The perfect song for a pleasant Saturday…
