I’ve always wished I knew more about music, and this is part of my Life List project to listen to 1,000 new songs. Right now I’m up to 441, and on Fridays I share some of my new favorites. If you’d like to share some music with me, please send your picks to maggie at mighty girl dot com, and I will listen to them.
These first three are via Caro J. Thanks, Caro!:
“I Sing I Swim” by Seabear
Icelandic band. Sample lyric, “Wash your face in the lake, you’ve got a diamond under your skin.”
“Quiet” by Non Tiq
“Don’t Save Me” by Marit Larsen
There just aren’t enough upbeat breakup songs.
“Feeling Good” by Nina Simone
This isn’t the first time I’ve heard this song, but it’s a favorite and I liked this video. It was a class assignment by professor Gail Anderson, who asked students in the SVA MFA Design program to create a music video using just type and typographic elements in black and white.
