gotta work

As I get older, I listen to less and less pop music, but I keep being impressed by Amerie! Why has this girl not broken through? I just downloaded "Gotta Work" and it's amazing. Her sound is actually really distinctive, rare in pop music, except for her slower songs, which I just ignore completely. "1 Thing", "Take Control" and now "Gotta Work" have blown me away. Danceable but not really a guilty pleasure. I hope she doesn't fully break through. She's too good for it!


I also downloaded "Heart in a Cage" by the Strokes, which I saw the video for on a blog...Please Don't Feed the Models, I think. Thanks! They're quite sexy, no? And the lead singer is named Julian! I love any guy named Julian/Julien.


I also downloaded "Happy" by the Rolling Stones, even though I have it on LP (Sticky Fingers) and CD (Forty Licks)

And I got some Morris Day & the Time. And you get a second post today!

Julian Lennon! Hey! I thought he'd reall amount to more, sounding much like his genius father. Oh well.

"Happy" by The Stones! YEEHA! Something so raw and basic about the Stones' music.

Love them.

amerie, didn't she come out a year or two ago? with that song, one, or something or something like that. i'm not sure. it was like pop-y, well, it was pop. but good noetheless.
and as for shopbop, i'm not sure if they have stores, but as far as my knowledge, it is only an online shop.

the strokes = the sex
I once had this dream where I was at this concert, and the strokes just fell out of the ceiling on bungee cords and took over the show.


needless to say, it was amazing.
young Keith = gorge
