distraction: Elastic Heart

On January 15, 2015 by theseventhsphinx

I was impressed by the video for Sia’s Elastic Heart, found it so bizarre and compelling. This track is great, too. It features that kind of repetition I not only don’t mind but wish went on and on.

And Shia LaBeouf: damn. Looking so good with this beard/fitness situation. Getting so many points for doing this strange video.

playlist: still burning

My taste is all over the place across the board, really, but especially when it comes to music. Here are some tracks I’m liking lately, with Ella Henderson’s ‘Ghost’ the reigning favorite dance track.


1. Ella Henderson – Ghost

2. Iggy Azalea – Black Widow ft. Rita Ora

3. Parliament – The Motor Booty Affair (classic funk, no one else seems to like this song quite as much as I do, which is baffling)

4. Bloc Party – She’s Hearing Voices (and old favorite)

5. The New Pornographers – Challengers

6. Tom Petty – Zombie Zoo (caught this on the radio around Halloween and have been listening to it ever since)

7. Modest Mouse – Dashboard

8. Cansei de ser Sexy – Music is My Hot Hot Sex

9. Blue Oyster Cult – Burnin’ for You

10. Le Tigre – I’m So Excited (great cover)

11. Darius – Velour

12. Carly Rae Jepsen – Call Me Maybe (cutesy but damn catchy)

all about that bass

Just want to be sure you know about this Meghan Trainor track, which I find eminently catchy, and which has a fine message for women of all ages. Pretty great video, too:

That’s all.

distraction: so fancy

On August 4, 2014 by theseventhsphinx

Evidently I’m the last person to hear this song, but that doesn’t make it any less worth sharing.

A beautifully executed homage to one of the most beloved movies of our generation (these costumes are spot on! Remember the Wildfox clothing line inspired by Clueless?), and a catchy earworm of a track in its own right. It’s been stuck in my head (in a good way) for a solid 24 hours, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere. I’m digging these dance moves, too.

My approval makes sense, of course. After all, I’ve been known to get a little fancy now and then.

no diggity, no doubt

Do you know, I think this must be my favorite song?

When it’s playing, it’s undoubtedly my favorite song.

The reasons cannot be numbered.

An irreproachable lazy summer evening soundtrack. There’s red wine and havarti happening over here, too. That’s right. Play on, playettes.
