>what song/band are you obsessed with right now?



Do you have a song that you are obsessed with right now?  … That song you listen to and then find yourself listening to over and over again?  If you do, I want to know!

I’m going to put together a playlist of all your favorite music.  Now, in order to do this, I’m going to need all of your help.  If you want to suggest a song to be included in the playlist, please post your recommendation either as a comment to this post or as a comment on the Squeaker Box Facebook page.

You can post multiple songs or just one.  I would really like to get a playlist together for all of you by Sunday, so get those recommendations going!

It’s still snowing here in Pittsburgh.  I really would like to go sled riding (not to be confused with sledding) this weekend.  I tried to get a picture of Nutmeg eating snow, but I didn’t do a very good job.

Here are my fave songs to get me in the the weekend mood (playlist at bottom of post):

Wiz Khalifa – “Stoned”
Yelle – “Safari Disco Club”
Lykke Li – “I Follow Rivers”
Lil’ Wayne – “I Run This Flower Shop” (Bret and I have played this non-stop)
Gucci Mane – “My Chain (Jonwayne’s Basement Mix)
Eliza Doolittle – “Skinny Genes” (I’m a sucker for any whistle song)
Natalia Kills – “Mirrors” (She has the potential to get really big)
Lost in the Trees – “Tall Trees”
Edward Sharpe vs. Kid Cudi – “Home is Wherever I’m With You”
Starfucker – “Boy Toy”

I’m still pretty obsessed with Jessie J and can’t get enough of this acoustic version of “Nobody’s Perfect.”  The song starts around 1:00.

And I’m still VERY MUCH obsessed with Little Comets.  Check out this awesome live rendition of “One Night in October.”  Love love love.


>a fair lady in london


>i have been on a uk musician kick lately, and i don’t think it’s going to quit anytime soon.  why is their music so much better over in the uk than in the united states? ugh.

anyways, eliza dolittle is a 22-year old musician from london.  she makes happy, feel-good acoustic music that’s perfect to listen to when baking cookies or sitting on the porch watching all the little birdies play in puddles.  she’s very reminiscent of kate nash.  in fact, i still play chiddy bang’s mixtape with kate nash’s ‘skeleton’ whenever i am on a road trip:

‘missing’ definitely reminds me of 1950s ice cream parlor music.  for me in particular, my hometown has an ice cream shop that still plays old 50s music, and i think this song would fit in perfectly with their playlist.  

it was hard for me to choose between ‘rollerblades’ and ‘missing’ since both have such a happy, upbeat feel, but just to get you in the ice cream kind-of-mood, i’ll leave you with ‘missing:’
