Let’s kick this party off with some music, shall we?
I use Shazam to find all kinds of music, whether it’s because I’m hearing something I’ve never heard before and I want to know what it is, or it’s a song I know, but can’t remember the artist, title, or album.
Either way, what I end up with is a pretty random list of music, and I thought it’d be fun to document those lists somewhere and share them.
That’s what this is, so here goes. Just to get caught up since the beginning of the year, here’s what I’ve Shazam’ed since January 1, 2014.
In mid-January, I went to LA to visit friends. Durng that trip, I tried Korean BBQ for the first time at a place called Road to Seoul.
The music in the restaurant was upbeat and perfect for the lively atmosphere, and these K-Pop songs caught my attention enough to try to get a listen.
Next up, just some good tunes. No explanation needed.
- Wayne Brady / Ordinary
- Flight Facilities Crave You (Adventure Club Remix)
- Daft Punk / Digital Love
- Daft Punk / Make Love
I discoverd Set Your House in Order while listening to the Grammy-nominated score from Life of Pi. It’s a good one.
- Mychael Danna / Set Your House in Order / Original Motion Picture Soundtrack : Life of Pi
I heard this one at one of my favorite coffee shops/bars in Portland while I was working there one more morning, and it drove me crazy how familiar it was, but how I couldn’t quite place it.
I could picture motion, cars, highways, and sweeping shots of a city’s skyline, but could not for the life of me figure out where I’d heard it before.
So, I Shazam’ed it. And then I realized it’s the song from the opening credits of Portlandia.
Which explains everything.
- Washed Out / Feel it All Around
February’s list is coming soon!
