Happy Thursday, y’all! Thursday excites me this week because it means for the first time in over 4 months that I actually have a weekend coming up! woop woop!! Everybody do the harlem shake to help me celebrate…
okay moving on! Thursday means one thing over here at Wild Things RUN Free… and I’m sure most of you know what it means. PLAYLIST THURSDAY!!!
New to Playlist Thursdays? Here’s the scoop… Each week our good friend Pavement Runner comes up with a music theme for the week. Then on Thursday we all make a post on our blogs with three songs that fit that week’s theme. Something Old (A song 5+ Years old) Something Current (A song released within the last year) and Something To Consider (A wild card. Any song within the theme that you want!)
This week’s theme? Songs by artist’s you’ve seen live! LOVE THIS. So many to choose from so lets get this show on the road, shall we?!
Side Note: while living in Florida, I took my ex Dan to see Radiohead for our birthday (we share a birthday) in 2008 in Tampa. It was such an awesome show. Easily one of the best live performances I have ever seen. Not necessarily because of any crazy awesome things they did or anything, but their level of talent and skill live just blew me away. Thom York is the only man with a lazy eye I can say is absolutely dreamy

Title: Drunken Birds
Side Note: Oh Cursive. One of those bands I have loved since their first album was released in what… 1999? Yeah, pretty sure it was ’99; and grows with me. I was fortunate enough to be at Lollapalooza in 2006 the year they were performing. We missed 90% of that show sadly… but that same Summer we caught them when they hit Buffalo for their Happy Hallow tour. This song is off of their most recent album, released last February called I am Gemini (oh heyyy me too ) It’s not one of my favorites by them, but still a great jam and on my running playlist!
Quoteable: “Drunken birds weaving through sycamores… How to teach your parrot to speak… A couple more drinks, hear the jailbird sing. How a lifetime cooped up has left him cagey”
SOMETHING TO CONSIDER:
Artist: Christine Donaldson
Title: Love Me Crazy
Side Note: Okay, so I’ve never seen her perform with her band… however she has sang for us before. So talented!!!! Christine is one of my Oakley sister’s, and not only is she an insanely talented singer/musician… She’s an incredible skier and all around wonderful person!!
Quoteable: “Some are afraid to love the restless. Those of us drawn to the places we have never been and the hands we have never shook. The memory of love aches like a growing pain. The more you love, the bigger your soul gets; and if love ends, every ounce of space you made for it is filled with possibility”
What are some of the best live shows you’ve been to? Or better yet, what’s one artist/band you absolutely MUST see live?
