my song is love.

there is something fundamentally disconcerting about forgetting part of the melody to one of your favorite songs. i think maybe it's even more disconcerting when you're not completely off--just a note or two. i was driving home last night, singing at the top of my lungs to a song that i really really love but haven't heard in awhile, and when i got to the chorus, the melody in my head was different than the one streaming through my stereo speakers. weird how time changes things. especially memory.

what music are you listening to--or remembering--lately? for me, it's badly drawn boy, devotchka, john mayer's battle studies and the (500) days of summer soundtrack (still).

  1. I, too, am still in love with the 500 Days of Summer soundtrack. (how can you not be?) And I'm loving Vampire Weekend (their new stuff and their old stuff)

  2. the album Nigeria Special: Modern Highlife, Afro-Sounds and Nigerian Blues has been on constant rotation lately

  3. It is strange how your memory can muddle even the most familiar things! It happens to me too sometimes. I stumbled across this beautiful blog - I love your choices of photography!
    Right now I'm listening to a strange mixture of "Mumford & Sons", Einaudi and "The Bangles" - about as eclectic as it gets!
