A black squirrel scurried across my path in Central Park today in the cold rain and while I’m not going to attach any deeper meaning to it ( apart from the fact I rarely see them there), I wanted to acknowledge that it was cool just to run into him or her being all unusual and shiz. Jeezus I’m rambling already. Welcome to the latest WEEKLY NEW WONDERS PLAYLIST ! I haven’t done this for a couple of weeks because there’s some bigger piles of words on the horizon that are taking my attention, one being the Top 50 SONGS OF THE YEAR as well as a lengthy, maniacal article on some ’80s popsters who are going to remain nameless for a minute. Anyway, that’s all coming in the next week or so and hope you dig it all ! On the off chance you actually miss my hyperbolic scribbling, please head over to covermesongs.com to read my weekly contributions to the world’s best cover songs blog Cover Me ! It’s not my blog as there is some serious quality control employed and awesomely awesome writing by a whole lotta amazing contributors but I am honored to be a small cog. Please go check it out ! Believe me when I tell you the cover version world is an endlessly fascinating, bottomless well of discovery.
Okay, so here are some of the finest pop songs and instrumental interludes (for emo moments) we’ve heard over recent days. Hopefully they will warm your heart and inspire you to kick ass in your daily endeavors. You can listen on Soundcloud or Spotify.
