2013 in review: the albums

Hi. Kim peeking in here for a quick minute for an end-of-year review of sorts – featuring (some of) my favorite album releases of the year. 2013 was a great year for music, so this is by no means a complete list. There were SO MANY new releases by favorite artists, and new releases that led to some of my favorite songs of the year, though not necessarily favorite albums. But for sake of space and attention spans I’m keeping it short-ish (yeah, right. Like I can do that!) and only focusing on the ones I think every music fan should own, or at least listen to. These are the albums from which I absolutely love all or almost all of the songs contained on them; the ones that have been in constant rotation since I got them.

On trainwrecks and twerking

So, I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume that you either watched the VMAs on Sunday or heard about them Monday and possibly have an opinion. Of course, the runaway performance of the evening was Miley Cyrus. Should we be surprised? I mean, c’mon, this is MTV and the 10th anniversary…

Let’s see if we can’t get the week started off right

with a little bit of music on this Monday! While I recover from exhaustion and car trouble, I’m handing the reigns off to CC on this one……

Wanna go for a ride?

Well, then hop in, buckle your seat belts, and hang on! This week’s Music Monday theme is “songs about cars” and we could not be more excited. The Mamas LOVE songs about cars! Who will YOU be riding shotgun with?

And then a playlist just happened

I was just minding my own business. And then I just kind of started doing the “la la la la la la la la la la-la” that starts “Wild World” and then I’m playing it and then it’s making me think of other songs and then voila! I tripped on a playlist. So here it…

This is what happens

When I go on a work spree, working doubles like a boss (#getthatmoney!): I almost forget to pull the Mamas into this week’s Music Monday post. Since it’s freebie week, and we’re working and getting our kidlets ready for the upcoming school year, hosting family, visiting family and generally buzzing about like busy little bees,…

You know, I’m a dreamer

but my heart’s of gold… I had to run away high… so I wouldn’t come home low… What do you think when someone asks you, “who do you think you are?” Because that’s the little ditty that always pops into my head. I just love this question. Who am I? Musically, speaking, I mean. Because…

Whee! We’re back, and ready to make a splash!

Hello! Kim here. You may or may not remember me, so I’ll be sure to get a bio up soon. In the meantime, I’ve come to deliver some summertime/water/splish-splash-themed amazingness via the Monday’s Music Moves Me theme at Dolly’s! When this site fell dormant a while back, I came across several Music Monday bloghops, and…

Sunday Scoop: Songs Never Played Together

Man, was I “out there” when I picked the last Fiver or what?  Talk about all over the spectrum!  Ah, well – say what you will about the carnival ride of genres – you can’t say it was boring…

Two Old, Two New, One a Blend Just For You

Happy Friday, and welcome to the recently resurrected Fiver, wherein we post five tracks – totally blind – for your aural digestion, and impatiently await your unfettered reactions to them in the comments below.  Per the norm, we shall return again on Sunday with the Scoop – the “big reveal” that illuminates all.
