Pearl Jam – Just Breathe
I’ve listened to this song at least 20 times today. There is always such a range of emotions and elements in Pearl Jam songs, but this one strikes me as especially emotionally vulnerable and powerful. It’s almost like a lullaby. It is so beautiful that you can just sort of lose yourself in it.
Madonna – Into the Groove
This year for the Halloween work party, I decided to be Madonna (Susan) from Desperately Seeking Susan. I have absolutely adored this movie (and Who’s That Girl) since I was very, very young and have always wanted an excuse to recreate that awesome jacket. Anyway, to get into the Madonna frame of mind, I’ve been listening to a lot of her tunes. This one in particular is from the movie. It so captures that time and the feeling of it all. What I’ve found is that being in costume is fun, and I fear that I’ve gotten far too attached to the big hair and excessive amount of accessories.
