The Songs I Sing – Day #5

I like today’s exercise a lot better than yesterday. Less introspection and more music! According to the list today I need to share about the “10 songs you love right now.” Being partially a data analyst in my day Most Recently Played Songs from iTunesjob, of course the first thing I did was go pull a report from iTune of my most played songs in the recent past. That is a pretty good list! But, I will need to edit it a bit to make it the songs I “love”. Why? Because although I have selected a group of songs for a playlist in iTunes, I have it on shuffle. That means that some I like may rank higher up that ones I really love. Just the luck of the draw. So, here goes.

First off, I am actually going to put Frank Turnerir?t=palmettobugdigit&l=ur2&o=1 over Mumford & Sons. We will get to them in a minute. But Frank Turner is a very new discovery of mine. I heard his song “Recovery” on the radio, went home and listened to a bit more, and was hooked. Within the next day or so I had bought the last five of  his albums.  I like the folksy nature of this ex-punk rocker, and I think he brings something of that punk sensibility to the folk music. But what really keeps bringing me back is the lyrics. He has some phrases that just catch me and hook me on the song.  So, for our first three songs out of ten, I will go with these tunes from Frank Turner….

1) Frank Turner – The Way I Tend to Be

2) Frank Turner – Losing Days
