“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 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.

    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.
