This Week's Commuter's Soundtrack

1) I rediscovered my Mumford and Son's CD this week and spent Wednesday night's commute learning the lyrics to track 3 - Winter Winds.  This band is amazing and you're probably familiar with their first single - Little Lion Man


2) After listening to the Mumford and Sons CD I thought of trading it out for the other CD I had in my car - Adele's 21 - but I was sick of that too, so I turned on the radio and what was playing? Adele Someone Like You. Sometimes you just have to belt it out regardless of who is watching.


3) Although it's only been on the radio for a few weeks, it is in such high rotation that this song is already almost played out. That doesn't stop me from from pretending I'm Adam Levine.
I've got to admit that my favorite line is -
"If I was an old school, fifty pound boombox
Would you hold me on your shoulder, wherever you walk
Would you turn my volume up before of the cops
And crank it higher every time they told you to stop
And all I ask is that you don’t get mad at me
When you have to purchase mad D batteries"

It makes me think of that iconic scene in Say Anything when John Cusack is holding the boom box over his head in the rain - swooon.  I bet sales of D batteries were never higher than in the era of boom boxes.
