Name For You


I’m currently planning a trip back up to my second home–the Northwest–and “Name For You” is by far one of the highlights on the travel playlist that I am making for my trip.

I’ve always had a special place in my heart for The Shins, as they were my first ever concert. Their music is simply feel-good music, and I have truly never been in a bad mood while listening to them. This song echoes that feeling and is also just such a great song to have on while driving.

Needless to say, I honestly cannot wait to see what else they have in store for us and the March release of their new album “HEARTWORMS”.

Wonderful Christmastime

According to the PlayNetwork site, Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has been replaced as the number one Christmas song by the Shins rendition of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”.

When I first saw this news, I was kinda shocked to be honest. With Love Actually being one of my favorite Christmas movies, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” has always been one of the songs I most associate with the holiday season and never imagined it could be trumped as the top song.

What’s your favorite holiday song?
