please don't stop the music

I've always believed music is the greatest art there is. I mean, is there any better way to express emotion than through song? To celebrate my love for music, I've decided to give you a little taste of my "Recently Played" section on my iTunes. What albums or artists have you been hooked on recently?

Electric Twist - A Fine Frenzy
The perfect "getting ready for a date" anthem! It gets me going and I can listen to it over and over and over again.

Half Life - Imogen Heap
Though nothing can trump Imogen Heap's hit Hide and Seek, I've found Half Life to come close. It's haunting and beautiful, something I listen to before I go to sleep every night.

The Resolution - Jack's Mannequin
This is the ultimate road trip song, with lyrics like "There's a lot that I don't know, there's a lot that I'm still learning."

Fireflies - Owl City
To put it simply, this song makes me smile.

My Beautiful Rescue - This Providence
I imagine myself listening to this on a beach.... with a cute guy by my side (:

Every Time You Lie - Demi Lovato
Tons of people rag on Disney stars who have launched so-called "singing careers," but I'd like to argue that not all teeny bopper celebs are well, teeny boppers. Demi Lovato has seemed to prove herself in her sophomore album "Here We Go Again" with a great mesh of tunes that I admittedly dance around in my room to with a hairbrush. Check the album out, I promise it's more fulfilling and mature than Miley Cyrus' "hit" single Party in the USA!

Folding Chair - Regina Spektor
There is something so appealing about Regina Spektor's music. It's so carefree and puts me in the loveliest moods! Her new album wasn't my absolute favorite compared to "Soviet Kitsch" and "Begin to Hope", but almost all her new songs are enjoyable. I'm going to see her in concert this October, I am so ecstatic!
