Today, in Gwen Stefani/No Doubt lyrics/Gwen Stefani birthdayapalooza

It's been too long! I brought this back in honor of her 42nd birthday. Girl, you look good!

Today I am going to focus on the song I've been listening to the most by this band lately:

"Full Circle" off their b-sides album. Originally intended for Return Of Saturn. It didn't make the cut, which I think was a silly move. it's a powerful rock song for the band.

lyrics time bitch:

All I've ever touched or said to them
Becomes a rehearsal for you, just practicing,
Too many magic moments to be coincidence
It all comes full circle
I knew someone who knew you
And he introduced me to you
Your ex-girlfriend had a boyfriend
Who kissed my girlfriend
Who dated Adrian...

what is this song about? FULL CIRCLE? obviously we find Gwen waxing about how closely intertwined all our lives are and how really no one is that far off from someone else. Like, my favorite parlour game to play when I'm entertaining the comrades Sunday nights, "Six Degrees of Chevy Chase's Ass."

like, here's the six degrees of me from Tom Ridge:
I lived in Erie
Tom Ridge lived in Erie
my parents know him


Six degrees of me and a writer from 30Rock:

I got my hair cut by the same person.


Six degrees of me and Anne Hathaway:
we were English majors.



so what's going on with my lady lately? she just launched a line of clothes for Target and has two super-cute kids she takes on playdates with Angelina Jolie. 

"Harajuku Mini is a dream come true," ... "I've always wanted to do a cool children's fashion line inspired by the supercute and playful kids' clothing you find in Japan." - Gwen Stefani

the new No Doubt album has been pushed back until 2012, but that's okay. that means I can just do a lot more of these until I have nothing left to write about and then move onto her solo career.

3 New Lana Songs Come Out From Upcoming Album "Blue Banisters"

Not even that far off from "Chemtrails Over The Country Club" being released this past March, Lana Del Rey dropped three new singles off her upcoming project, "Blue Banisters." They include the title track, "Text Book," and "Wildflower Wildfire." All three songs seem to merge the worlds of "COCC" with "Norman Fucking Rockwell," specifically Lana's mouthful of a track "Hope is a Dangerous Thing for a Woman Like Me To Have But I Have It." They also seem uncharacteristically more confessional than most of Lana's catalog to date, specifically "Wildflower Wildfire," which alludes to a conflict with her mother. She even starts the track with "Here's the deal," readying to show more of her backstory than she ever has in her decade-plus-long career. The three songs are gorgeous - especially "Text Book," which has a haunting quality to it (she mentions "Black Lives Matter" i

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
