Theme Thursday - Sunshine

It's a beautiful sunny day here in NYC, so the theme for today is Sunshine.

Sunshine [mp3] - Atmosphere - "Sad Clown Bad Summer - Number 9" (iTunes). I love this song and how it reminds us to enjoy the simple things in life and focus on the positive. This is from Atmosphere's newest album that just came out in the end of August. And, as I always have to add, Atmosphere is from Minneapolis. It's really relaxing, which is awesome because I don't usually think of rap as a particularly relaxing medium.

Asleep on a Sunbeam [mp3] - Belle & Sebastian - "Dear Catastrophe Waitress" (iTunes). Belle & Sebastian have a lot of songs about sunshine/sunniness, but I like this one and it is another perfect relaxing song.

Burned by the Sun [mp3] - Beulah - "The Coast is Never Clear" (iTunes). Very groove-able. A great song for driving with your windows too.

Sunset Soon Forgotten [mp3] - Iron & Wine - "Our Endless Numbered Days" (iTunes)

Sunburn [mp3] - Muse - "Showbiz" (iTunes unavailable). This one is less relaxing (or well, it becomes less relaxings part way through the song) but I think the piano part is really pretty.

Sunshine [mp3] - Simian - "We Are Your Friends" (iTunes unavailable). This one is more upbeat, almost dance-able.

Don't Take My Sunshine Away [mp3] - Sparklehorse - "Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain" (iTunes). I like this one until about 40 seconds before the end when all of a sudden it becomes really hard rock and for like 15 seconds out of nowhere and I don't think that fits in with the rest of the song. But the beginning reminds me of my old favorite band, Remy Zero.

Island In The Sun [mp3] - Weezer - "The Green Album" (iTunes). This song is one of the best chilling on a sunny day songs ever so I had to post it.

Hope you all have a chance to get out and enjoy the lovely weather while it lasts. Tata dahlings.
