The One With The Love Songs.

I’m seriously dreading Valentine’s Day this year but for some reason I find myself enjoying love songs more than ever. One song that I absolutely love is M. Ward’s Never Had Nobody Like You.  And for She & Him fans, the song features Zooey Deschanel so you know it’s gonna sound sweet, quirky and especially charming. Oh, and it’s just so wonderfully… quaint! The song’s from Hold Time, the album which is out 17th February. So do look out for it, I’m pretty excited about it.

Also, since I’m on the topic of love songs, Starbucks have released the second volume of their love songs covers compilation, Sweetheart and I’m really loving what I’ve heard already. Definite highlights Rogue Wave’s cover of Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Maps and especially Jem’s beautiful beautiful take on Coldplay’s Yellow, arguably my favourite Coldplay song to date.

So anyways, whether you’re gonna be alone on Saturday evening or having a great dinner with a ferrero rocher bouquet(Such a cliche, but I would totally love one!), I guarantee you’ll love the tunes, yo! ENJOY!

Run Away With Me.

So, I’m finally at the time in my life where I’ve only come to realise that one can’t simply lose weight by wishing to eat less and by thinking that running for the bus every morning should be suffice enough to call it exercise. I look at myself and I immediately know that I can’t put of exercising any further and have thus decided to run at least once every week. But running is such a pain in the (fat) ass such that only a perfect playlist can keep me going and also the fact that my sister has said on more than one occasion that I actually might look a little attractive(!!) after I run. So this is for those who have to really force themselves to run and just good music for others.
