Best of 2012: Songs from June (Part 1)

Wild Ones - Flo Rida and Sia

Three confessions: One: I freakin' love Flo Rida. Since I'm usually listening to, shall we say, softer music, some people are surprised by my undying love for Flo Rida. I bet you're less surprised that I'm a big Sia fan.  Two: Every time I write the word "wild," I write the word "Wilde" first. Three: For years, "Low" was the ringtone for when my mom called.

June already has a long songlist, and it's pretty eclectic, so the rest of it will be given in the order in which the songs were received.

Such Great Heights - The Section Quartet

This is a cover of a song by The Postal Service. Even if you're not a fan of the original (I am), you might still enjoy this version.  TSQ also does great covers of "Black Hole Sun" and Muse's "Time is Running Out."

Bad Romance - Vitamin String Quartet

If you like TSQ, you might also enjoy Vitamin String Quartet. Besides an entire album of Lady Gaga covers, VSQ also does covers of Viva La Vida, Bittersweet Symphony, Kids by MGMT.

More - Usher

I'm also an Usher fan...

Ljósið -  Ólafur Arnalds

Yeah, I don't know how you pronounce it either, but Arnalds is a pretty impressive 25 year old multi-instrumentalist from Iceland. 

 I Don't Love You Anymore, but I Don't Love You Any Less - Hungry Ghosts
This song reminds me of Miss Marple. I'm pretty sure I've seen it on a BBC mystery at some point.

Landline - Greg Laswell and Ingrid Michaelson

And then I finally got Greg Laswell's new album, which features this song with his wife, Ingrid Michaelson. You may remember I already posted videos of "Come Back Down" and "Back to You" in March when they were first released. But the whole album is fantastic and well worth the $7.99 on iTunes.

Here's another: 

Another Life to Lose


New Years' Eves

And just to wrap things up nicely...Good Feeling - Flo Rida ft. Etta James

Because I like to dance.
