Well hello there! Thanks for joining me Under the Covers this morning. Lovely to have you here, as always.
In addition to kummerspecking, I’ve been listening to a lot of music lately. Specifically, a lot of music by non-conformist, boundary-breaking, independent and just plain awesome chicks. It makes me feel more adventurous when I’m updating my spreadsheets in Corporate World. Sometimes I get really daring and colour code things with more than black and white.
I know, I know: I can hear the tiny violins playing too. I’m grateful for my job and all of the opportunities and benefits it provides, really, I am. I love that I’m able to live in the pocket-sized place! But you know me … black and white’s not really my style. Have I mentioned lately how glad I am that I have all of you to chat with during the day?!?
Anyway, back to the tunes. One more thing that I’m late to the party for: I’m completely obsessed with Lorde’s new album, and with this song in particular:
It’s been on repeat the entire time I’ve been writing this post. I feel cooler already. But I just threw that in there because if it’s stuck in my head, I figure it should be in yours, too; it’s an original work and isn’t today’s cover.
Today’s cover is by Canadian sister duo Tegan and Sara. I heard it on the radio while we were at the cottage last week, and it’s stayed with me ever since. A very unusual take on a rock classic – even if it’s not your cup of tea, you have to give the girls credit for taking on The Boss in the first place!
Is there a song that sticks with you long after you’ve heard it? It doesn’t even have to be one that you like, necessarily – just something that gets stuck in your head. Tell me all about it in the Comments! If we get enough of a conversation going, I’ll put together a special-edition Friday playlist for us to celebrate the end of the week tomorrow!
