Been a while since I’ve done one of these. And honestly, I’m ashamed that I don’t spend much time these days listening to new music. Something I always told myself was that I never wanted to be one of those people who always talked about the ‘good old days’ when music was awesome… Yet I fear I’m gonna end up like that someday, ugh.

Anyway, here’s a couple tunes I love.

This from Guitar Hero, which we play as a family – kind of cool, cuz we all listen & play together.

Me and Jen have always been huge Tom Petty fans, add that to John Mayer and you get this. We’ve got it on heavy rotation.

It’s a well known fact that I am NOT a Stones fan. However, this song is amazing, and well done by Alicia Keys & Adam Levine.

That’s all for today.

  1. The video isn’t available anymore so I couldn’t watch it, but that’s the John Mayer cover of Free Fallin’ right? I loved his version.

    And ohmygosh that Keys/Levine version of Wild Horses is FANTASTIC. I love that song too. Where was that?

  2. ah dang – I fixed the links, I think. Yes, that is Free Fallin’ – what a great song, never gets old.
    I’m not sure where the Wild Horses was recorded, I just found it on YouTube, looking for a version other than the Stones.

  3. That version is much better than the original, I think.
