As you all know (or maybe you don’t), I’ve always said that Tegan and Sara sound like Alvin and the Chipmunks. Well.  They don’t when singing WITH the chipmunks, but otherwise…

Anyway, there is a recording of them singing the chipmunks song! Meta.

Check this cover of Beyonce’s “Sweet Dreams” done ever-so-prettily by Marie Digby.  I wish her new album sounded more subdued and sweet like this song cover, and like her first album.  But what can ya do?

I heard this song randomly at a store a few weeks ago and became obsessed with finding it… for like, five minutes.  But I was reminded of it last night and am pleased (or maybe slightly embarrassed) to say that it’s Vanessa Hudgens.  She sampled “Baby Come Back” from my favorite Swiffer commercial!  It’s glorious!

Download it here.  :)

memory lane.

Since writing that post about the 15 most important albums, I have had a rekindled love affair with a little band called Rufio, that I used to listen to constantly in high school.  And one song in particular, my favorite from the album, “Road to Recovery” is still so relevant and hard-hitting.  I want to share it with my corner of the Internet.  Unfortunately, they had practically no funding, so no music videos were made from the specific album I have in mind (their first: “Perhaps… I Suppose”) but here is a link to a YouTube video that features the lyrics.

So normally, I try to subvert stereotypes and stay far, far, FAR away from The Indigo Girls.  But blended-sister Meghan recorded one of their songs last week and I am sort of totally in love with it.  The song is “Hammer and Nail” and you can download it here!

We’ll be able to say “we knew you when” for sure.
