Adele at the Brit Awards

This video is a few weeks old now, but I’m not tired of it yet! Adele had a great performance at the BRIT Awards on Feb 15, singing her newest single “Someone Like You”.

While I was browsing the BRIT Awards entry on Wikipedia, I saw that Mumford & Sons also performed this year, and that they did the song “Timshel”. At 68 plays on my iTunes, this track is one of my favorites from the band. I’m surprised that they’re releasing it as a single, since it’s relatively quiet and not geared for the radio, but it’s a great song nonetheless. (Make sure to check out a non-live version for better quality.)

Playlist: May 2010

Something new! Every few months I make an iTunes playlist of songs that I’m loving. Sometimes they’re new, sometimes they’re relatively old but new discoveries to me, and sometimes they’re sweet classics. I just made my “summer 2010” playlist last week and it’s been on constant repeat. Occasionally I make a second summer playlist sometime around July or August, so I’m labeling this one as May 2010, though I don’t expect to be blogging one every month.

Playlist: May 2010

MGMT – “Kids”
Klaxons – “Golden Skanes”
Florence + The Machine – “Dog Days are Over”
Band of Skulls – “Light of the Morning”
David Gray – “Stella the Artist”
Magistrates – “The Inbetweens”
Toto – “Africa”
The Police – “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic”

Let me know what you think of the website. I was planning to link to recordings on youtube, but sometimes I think a music video can really ruin a song, yea?
