There are few things in my life that I can say are absolutely certain.
As Brandon says: “Death, taxes, and an empty splenda packet on the counter every morning.” (He thinks he’s hilarious.)
But one thing I’ve always known to be true, is my deep-rooted hatred for a certain sound. A sound filled with twang, and banjos and rants about ‘merica. Yes. It’s true. I am a country music hater.
Well.. until recently, that is. You see, lately, there has been a change in me. I haven’t been doing things like aggressively changing the station and mumbling things about stupid horses and beer cans under my breath. I will even admit to you that I’ve even found myself actually singing along to a few god-forsaken cuntry’ songs. (I know! I am as shocked and surprised as you are.) To be clear, these songs are few and far between, and most of them would probably be considered “pop country”, but still. Progress people.
Now I’m not saying I’m going to sit through the CMA’s or go buy a Lady Antebellum cd (which I may or may not have burned onto my desktop- SHHHHH!), but I have to say, the times, they are a-changing. Plus I kind of want to get drunk and polish guns with Miranda Lambert.
On another music note (that is how you pun, people) I figured I’d share a few songs with you that I have been a little to extremely obsessed with as of late. Also none of them are country. I’m not there yet. Give it time.
The always sexual, John Mayer. (Can’t. Stop. Listening.)
Foster the People: Not just a one-hit wonder, friends.
Last but not least…a new addition to my iPod and I suggest you make them part of yours too: Crash Kings (Black Keys-esque)
What are you listening to lately? (PS- I have to thank Jess for the inspiration to write this post today. That girl gets me.)
