Welcome to 2016!

Admittedly, I didn't start this year on a ~ fantastic ~ note. And 16 is something of a power number for me, so I'd hope I would. But, no. I get vulnerable and I get hurt and I ended, and I ended up dejected and hurt. Whatever though, that's not a sign of things to come. For me or for you. I can promise you that much.

So here is my PRETTY UPBEAT 2016 playlist. I used to love Ed Harcourt in high school. I still harbor a soft spot for him. "She Fell Into My Arms" is on my in-love playlist. Yes, I have a playlist for when I fall in love. I won't share it with you until it becomes relevant again. But it's all of the songs from the 1940s. I should really term it "I'm gonna die alone with 1000 guinea pigs" tbqh.

It also has Disclosure/Lorde, Soren Bryce (swoon!), and The Four Tops. Their version of "Walk Away Renee" is something you gotta here at some point. And Empress Of??? That girl is GOOD.

Take it easy guys, we will talk soon. Did you know this blog is seven years old? :O That's like a decade, but not.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"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.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
