Music Monday! Sir Sly: High

Before anyone reacts, yes, I realize this song seems to imply drug use. That being said, I do not recommend, support, or participate in illegal drug use. I like the sound of the chorus of this song. This song is also part of the soundtrack of 13 Reasons Why which is a controversial Netflix series that deals with teen suicide. I am also not in favor of teen or adult suicide. Sir Sly first found fame in 2013 when their song Gold was used in a promo  for a video game. Later it was also used in a Cadillac commercial.

Music Monday! Paramore: Use Somebody

Paramore is a very fun band to see live. Here though is a low key cover done on the BBC’s Live Lounge show. It’s Use Somebody that was originally done by Kings of Leon. If you’re a music fan you should look up the Live Lounge show. It features artists doing covers of their favorite songs by other artists.

Music Monday! The Revivalists

The Revivalists have been around since 2007 but this song that premiered last year has had tremendous popularity and staying power on the Adult Alternative charts. They’re a seven piece band out of New Orleans with a fun, old school sound. Their first gig ever was at a laundromat/bar. I love the idea of a laundromat/bar, but with the success of this song and their 4th album, I doubt The Revivalists will ever play at one again.

Music Monday! Sundara Karma: She Said

This four man band formed just two years ago in Reading, Berkshire England. Their first studio album was released just three months ago and their catchy, upbeat hit song She Said has been shooting up the charts since. They’ve got a great sound and industry insiders have compared them to U2 and Arcade Fire. The song is peppy and upbeat and the video has a great cheesy 80’s kind of vibe.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! This Day In 2005

Why am I going back to this day in 2005 for my Music Monday? Because I’m celebrating the 12th anniversary of #ThePhilFactor! I was going to feature the two songs that were number 1 on this date in the U.S. and in the U.K..  Like, I said, I was going to feature both, but the U.S. no.1 that week was Candy Shop by 50 cent. The video, which you can watch by clicking the link, was… ahem… not exactly family friendly, so I chose to just leave the link for you deviants. Then I lucked into this next gem that was the U.K. number 1 for seven weeks, including April 3, 2005. Make no mistake, this is awful and embarrassing, but I’ll give it some context: It’s a song that was originally popular in the U.K. in 1971. The video, made for Comic Relief, features a U.K. comedian, Peter Kay, lip syncing the original audio sung by Tony Christie. The video is funny because of it’s ridiculous badness.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil
