>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.


>500 days of … what?


>i think by now, many of you have seen or heard about the movie ‘500 days of summer.’  in the music blog world, the movie gained a lot of attention for its solid soundtrack which included artists like regina spektor, temper trap, feist, and of course — she & him (appropriately so since zooey is in the movie…)

apparently they forgot to put lil’ wayne on the soundtrack. 

just kidding.

or am i?

http://twitter.com/mysickuncle decided to take the entire ‘500 days of summer’ soundtrack and mash it with lil’ wayne songs.  for some reason, i’m such a sucker for lil’ wayne.  it’s pretty crazy how a lot of his raps and beats can be mashed with so many songs.  i don’t necessarily enjoy each and every one of the songs, but the effort was totally worth it:
