“If music be the food of love, play on…”

~ Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

Drugs are lame. Television sucks. Sex, well…that’s another discussion for a different day. But music…ahhh…music. When winter’s feeling long–inside and out–here are a few songs your heart might need to hear.

When you’re all out of love, skip Air Supply. Go with Bon Iver.

(or the equally awesome Ingrid Michaelson covering Bon Iver.)

Brooding on a rainy January afternoon? Carla Bruni sil vous plait:

Or for brooding plus a little sweat and testosterone: Mumford & Sons.

Or maybe you’re done brooding and you need to get the eff up and dance!

Maybe you’re nursing a crush (fascinating eyes included!)

Or nursing a broken heart.

But whatever state your beautiful heart is in tonight: Kites.

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter

    nice kate! yum yum. :)

  2. [...] Adele. And then, I shook it off a little. No more sulking and sighing. Time for a new song (or two, or eight.) As great as they are, I thought I was done with the 108 bazillion covers of Rolling in the Deep [...]

  3. [...] The combination of music and love though, now that is a stellar duo. I can confidently say that each one of us has that one song, or maybe more, that transports them back in time to first kisses, sixth grade dances, mom and dad dancing in the living room and your first ever “I will love you forever” type crush. [...]
