This edition of Music Monday post is going to be a little different from the previous ones I posted. In those, I outlined a list of songs I had listened to while getting my blogging on. This week, I want to highlight an artist whose altar I am worshiping at hardcore right now. Move over fellas, I’ve got a new lady in my life, and her name is Marina.
I had heard of Marina and the Diamonds from reading trashy online gossip sites (don’t you dare judge me) but had never actually listened to her music until a few weeks ago. It was late at night, and I was surfing YouTube and clicking on the suggested videos that appear on the right side, and landed on one of her songs. Hearing her music for the first time was like….a million little rockets going off in my head.
Have you ever listened to an artist or band and felt that their anthology was written for you? I’ve had that only a handful of times in my life:
- Fleetwood Mac (My Main Squeeze)
- Three Dog Night
- Aimee Mann
- The Bravery
- James Taylor
- Bon Iver
And now, Marina and the Diamonds. I’ve got a girl crush on her in the biggest way, and I think she’s incredibly beautiful and badass and talented. Here are the songs of hers I’m loving the most right now:
What about you guys, do you have any artists whose bodies of work make your little hearts ridiculously happy?
