Tuesday Thursday Tunes: “Cosplay” - D-Piddy and Charmie Sweets

A great parody of Pharrell’s “Happy”. In fact, I would say that this video for “Cosplay” actually makes me happier than listening to “Happy”. How can you not feel happy when all of the people are so happy cosplaying and being what they want to be?

Happy Thor’s Day

Tuesday Friday Tunes: “With A Song (A Zelda parody of “When I’m Gone”)” -┬áDanny and Tori | 2-Player Co-op

I’ve been bad about doing Tuesday Tunes lately, so here’s one late (again), but it’s enjoyable. A wonderful play on Anna Kendrick’s “When I’m Gone (Cups)” with a Zelda theme. Danny and Tori, aka 2-Player Co-op are awesome, and I recommend checking out their other video game related tunes here. And support them by buying their music, you can even name your price.

Tuesday Wednesday Tunes: “Flagpole Sitta” - Harvey Danger

Vintage 1997. Good year.

Tuesday Tunes: “Lost At Sea” - Zedd

Sometimes it’s good to be lost. Sometimes all you need is the stars. Sometimes all you need is the song in your head.

Tuesday Tunes: “When Can I See You Again?” - Owl City

Straight off the Wreck-It Ralph soundtrack and into your ear holes comes this little tune to get you smiling. Seriously, if you haven’t seen Wreck-It Ralph, change that immediately. Then you’ll appreciate this song a bit more. It’s an amazing movie. One of my favorites.

Tuesday Tunes: “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” - Suburban Legends

Yes, this is a cover of that song from Toy Story, but I tend to like covers. Plus, this one is done by a peppy ska band called Suburban Legends which I got to see live with Reel Big Fish and the Aquabats. They were a lot of fun, so if you want to hear more by them use the Internet to find them.

Now, crank your sound box and let the music move you. And if you know the words, sing along.

Tuesday Tunes: “Pop Danthology 2013” - Daniel Kim

I couldn’t decide what to pick for the revival of Tuesday Tunes, so I figured this mix of pop songs from 2013 could stand in until next week. Enjoy and dance like no one’s watching.

And if you do enjoy, go check out Daniel’s other mixes here.

Tuesday Tunes: “Clarity” - Zedd

I found this song by looking through Vimeo’s music videos, and I’ve got to say Zedd is one of my new favorites. The music makes me move and I like the lyrics a lot, two of the three prerequisites I have for adding any musicians to my music library. This track in particular has some meaningful lyrics such as:

You are the piece of me
I wish I didn’t need
Chasing relentlessly
Still fight and I don’t know why

And then the chorus:

If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy?
If our love’s insanity why are you my clarity?

Yeah, I know.

Tuesday Tunes: “Shake It Out” - Florence + The Machine

My life has taken so many turns as of late that it doesn’t resemble what it was merely a year ago. Sometimes I think too much about it, waiting for the house of cards to fall. Then I realize it’s not worth my time to let those thoughts in. Instead, I crank some music, dance, and with any luck, go back to being awesome.

It’s hard to dance with a devil on your back

Tuesday Tunes: “Fresh Feeling” - Eels

You don’t have a clue
What it is like to be next to you
