it’s going to be a vampire weekend

Oh you guys, I’m stuck in a loop and I can’t get out. Not yet. I’ve been sitting here listening to Vampire Weekend‘s new song, “Step” on repeat. To that point, before I started typing this I hit “replay” (again) and heard an “Oh my God” from the other side of the office. Sorry Aki. :)

I don’t know what it is, but this song just makes me feel so melancholy in such a wonderful way. Is that a thing? And then I just feel hopeful and happy. The video makes it even better, it’s a perfect match. I’m smiling and I want you to feel the same.

I wonder if you do  feel the same. Sometimes it just feels so personal when I connect to a song. It reminds me of when I read a book and connect so deeply that I am somehow surprised that someone else “knows” the same characters. How do they know? (about our relationship). Does that ever happen to you?

I’m feeling that I need more music in my life. And probably a good book. I really don’t want this feeling to wear off. Hurry up, someone line up another song for me!

Have a great weekend everyone! I’m hoping to have some time to go through photos and show you what we’ve been up to lately. I’m so behind.

So glad I stumbled across the video on the Love Taza blog. I’m always happy after visiting them.

If you still want more CITY after watching, I’ve got you. Here’s a collection of photographs I’ve collected called “At Home in the City.” Collected a collection. You heard me right. ;)

15 Thoughts on “it’s going to be a vampire weekend

  1. ha ha glad to know i’m not the only one who listens to a new found song on repeat! our poor households! i’m loving, the lumineers ‘dead sea’, words are so beautiful.

    Oh my goodness, melancholy is such a big deal for me in music. My two top melancholy albums of all time—at least until I think about it longer—are “Time out of Mind” (Bob Dylan) and “Wrecking Ball” (Emmylou Harris). Over and over and over. :)

    • good suggestions! I love that the songs (and albums) are lining up!

  3. JaeHi:

    I love the phrase ” feeling melancholy in such a wonderful way.” I connect to that and I love those moments!

  4. I was just over at Taza’s blog and saw this! How I love Vampire Weekend… I’m adding this tune to my 8tracks playlist pronto. I’m probably late to the party, but lately, I’ve been obsessed with Imagine Dragons (‘Time’, ‘Top of the World’), OneRepublic and Hurts.

  5. Jess:

    “Melancholy involves the pleasure of reflection and contemplation of things we love and long for, so that the hope of having them adds a touch of sweetness.”

    I’m smiling and I’m glad you are too, my friend! A pretty song I’ve been listening to a lot this month is “People of the Sticks” by The Besnard Lakes.

    • I LOVE that. Oh my goodness, well put!

      And thank you for the link…I’m going to go have a listen!

  6. Carley:

    here’s my “on repeat” of the moment!

    • thank you Carley, knew I could count on you! :) i think I should always ask you what you have “on repeat” the moment. :)

  7. Christina Mundaca:

    Interesting…very interesting, hey maybe we can make a juke remix of this song :)! I really like it. It’s different.

  8. lo:

    so fun :))

  9. I feel that way when I read a book. I’m so into the book that I sometimes forget that stuff is going on around me. I got a cure for that this week (Spring Break!). The kids will entertain themselves and I will nestle in for a great book….
