Tune In Tuesday {31} RANDOM

Tune In Tuesday is a fun weekly post hosted by Ginger at GReads.  It's a great way to see what kind of music other people are loving.  I’ve seen these around and just had to join in the fun.

I didn't post a song last weekend because I was out of town the entire weekend and had no time on Monday. I saw Katelyn post about how excited she was for her post tomorrow and told her I felt like a failure because I skipped last week AND had no idea of a NEW song this week (We Are Young, Smooth Criminal and It Will Rain are still running through my brain). Then Katelyn suggested that I pull up iTunes and click RANDOM! And...that's what I'm doing now! *crosses fingers for non embarrassing song choice*

And the winner is.............................WEEZER!!!!!!!!!!!! So not embarrassing! And it landed on "Buddy Holly" which is one of my all time favorite songs from them! Since their debut album, Weezer (also known as the Blue Album) is my favorite, I'm posting two of the songs because I just can't choose! 

Buddy Holly

Undone (The Sweater Song)

And because I can never post just one video, here's a cover of Buddy Holly and Undone by The Flying W's (went to HS with the drummer..who can almost be seen in undone). I think they're pretty great. If you live near Denver, CO, be sure to check out a show.

And a SUPER HUGE thanks to Katelyn for her help! 

Also, another reason I'm slacking on Tune In is because I'm ridiculously happy for the theme in March! BOOK SOUNDTRACKS! I'm going to incorporate a few songs that I use while writing my book (ya know, cause I like to "bend" the rules a little). :D

Yeah, Weezer is definitely not embarrassing in the least. That's also my favorite album by them, so double score! Thanks so much for sharing! :)

YAY I love both those songs, but it's been far too long since I've listened to either.

I love the random idea. Let's see what I get when put my playlist on random.

*drum roll*

Somebody I Used To Know by Gotye! Hehe awesome :)

Weezer can do absolutely no wrong as far as I'm concerned. Great shuffle pick!

See, your iTunes definitely did not let you down! Random story about Weezer: It is like a crime in my family not to like them! I was named after my great Aunt Louise. EVERYONE calls her Aunt Weezy/Aunt Weezer so we buy her Weezer shirts all the time. Great picks Mandie :)
