have you ever

picked a quiet song on your ipod, and turned the music up on your earphones/speakers until each note lingers in the air (long after it has gone)? take hide and seek by imogen heap for example. it gives me shivers when i listen to the lyrics, really listen to them, and mind pictures of quiet sunday noontimes with golden light filtering through motes of dust

most of my inspiration comes from this. slow songs that make you fall asleep, but keep you awake enough to keep pressing the repeat button, because you want to relive those memories that aren't really yours but beautiful all the same

so because you are awesome (the follow wendy's blog kind of awesome) i have amassed a list of songs that i personally like to listen loud

flightless bird, american mouth - iron & wine
hide and seek - imogen  heap
topsy turvy - family force 5
crystalised - the xx
vcr - the xx
free fallin - john mayer
near to you - a fine frenzy (i always thought of this as the theme song to 'new moon')
roses and butterflies - making april
