Tune of the Tuesday: “Pretty Pimpin” – Kurt Vile

Prior to a Kim Churchill show, the sound person was playing so many tracks from Kurt Vile’s 2015 album that after shazamming them all, I had to buy the whole album. This track is particularly catchy.

Tune of the Tuesday: “Find You” – Nick Jonas

I bought this song off of iTunes not really knowing who the song was by. It was the intro of sparse guitar chords that drew me in. To have the song evolve into a melodic dance rhythm with the guitar tying everything together, it’s a song that is hard to get out of one’s mind once you’ve heard it a few times. Such as it is for me, in any case. I can’t say that I know all the lyrics per se, but I’ve now come to associate those particular guitar chords played at that specific tempo as an introduction to this song.

Tune of the Tuesday: “Rewrite The Stars” – Zac Efron and Zendaya

I. Love. This. Song. I am admittedly more of a music person more than a movie person. Such that there are movie soundtracks that I have purchased in a physical and/or digital format where I had not yet watched the movie the music was to accompany. Including many movies where I have listened to the soundtrack many times over but have ceased an interest in watching the movie itself. “Rewrite The Stars” is not from one of those movie soundtracks, but my plans to watch the movie “The Greatest Showman” are on hold until I find enough time to lose myself in what looks to be a beautifully filmed musical from all the trailers and previews I have seen. This song in particular is what I want to see visualized as the lyrics are so poignant, so full of emotion that I want to see how the actors behind this duet made the words live in their actions. I cannot stop listening to this song and the entire soundtrack.
