“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.
Dig in–feed your hungry heart!
