A look into the music I love, and music I come across which I must happily blog about at my heart's content.

Other People’s Heartache Part 2 (mixtape) - Bastille
I have a problem. Ever since I saw Bastille live last month (just about a month ago, actually) I’ve been listening to All This Bad Blood non-stop. It’s the only album I listen to. And when I listen to the radio, I hear “Pompeii” or “Bad Blood” and then I end up turning off the radio to listen to the album.
Bastille, you are infectious.
And today, as I listened through “Previously on Other People’s Heartache” I decided to research a lyric I didn’t recognize. And that lead me to the three parts of the magical “Other People’s Heartache”.
I love the inclusion of movie clips transitioning in and out of songs, and I love the re-construction of cover songs and even their own songs. It was so interesting to get the feel of a song, then recognizing the lyrics before realizing, “HEY, IT’S SIA’S TITANIUM he is singing— what the what?!" And even hearing snippets of Bastille songs worked into covers/mashups in unexpected ways. Gaah. I love Dan Smith and Bastille even more after tonight.
Here are Part 1 and Part 3. I wish I knew where to find copies or download these.
"Don’t hold me to it," said a coworker earlier today. She is trustworthy, and I won’t hold whatever she said to against her. But when she said that this song was in my head and stayed there. I remember those days when I felt enough animosity toward a coworker to direct this song to.
