Hey y'all! Snapping fingers at the ready? It's Music Week here at Wonders Never Cease!
I thought I'd post about new music that makes me happy, okey doke? I hope you'll tell me about your latest faves too. I LOVE discovering something new to listen to.
Have you met Nellie McKay? Her last name rhymes with pie, which is perfect given the name of her latest album. (See above.) I just found Nellie earlier this month when NPR did a feature on that album, but she's been around for a while. Her debut album, Get Away From Me, (a play on Norah Jones' Come Away with Me) came out in 2003, and I can't stop singing her songs.
Like this one.
Isn't that delightful? She's clearly having a blast with that song.
I've been singing it all weekend, and it's a good thing for Tanner the Slobber Dog that I have, given his latest shenanigans. Want to see?
I noticed something strange in the backyard and headed out the door. As you can see, he was in a hurry to show off his handiwork.
What's that? Sam's favorite bear and...another $3 container of red pepper hummus.
I better put on some Nellie McKay and get happy again. Have a few minutes? Poke around on YouTube a bit. You might fall in love with her too.
Have a great Monday, y'all!
