Happy Week: Happy Tuesday!

If I couldn't be an artist, I'd want to be a musician. Well, I want to play music regardless, but, ya know... anyways. Here are my five favorite bands/singer-songwriters, which all make me very very happy. Picking just one video for each of these to share is HARD because I want to strap you all down and make you listen/watch them all. But I can't do that. :9 So here we go:

The Smashing pumpkins have been my absolute favorite band since I was about 12 years old. That's over a decade. D: They have sooo many visually amazing videos, so ignore what I said about just one video per person because for them I can't help posting more than that.

Tonight, Tonight - One of my favorite videos ever made

Stand Inside Your Love

I wanted to share more but so many of the youtube videos don't allow embedding these days. :(

Joanna Newsom - I love her equally to the Pumpkins. Her earlier vocals are somewhat of an acquired taste, but she's gotten more...control over the past few years, haha.

Ok, screw what I said about one video. I don't expect everyone to watch all of these anyways, I might as well do what I want, haha.

Fiona Apple - <3

Fast As You Can live with Nickel Creek (I love it when artists mess up a bit! Reminds you they are human too...and it's funny.)

Extraordinary Machine

Regina Spektor - Her new album is awesome

Blue Lips

And Eisley!! :D None of their official videos are on youtube anymore. :(

And that's that. If you've watched more than one or two of those, yay for you. :) Unless you hated them....sad day. :(
