Soundtrack to March

Admittedly, March hasn't been the best month for music because at times I've just been too busy to listen to as much as I usually do. But I do have a couple of things I want to talk about for this post. Let me know what you have been listening to recently as well!

Arctic Monkeys: Okay, okay, this isn't ground-breaking stuff here. The Arctic Monkeys. They're really famous, but for some reason I've been particularly obsessed with listening to them this month. I think it started with watching a couple of their live shows and falling in love with Alex Turner and the band's lyrics all over again. There's just something so nice and unique about their lyrics and their songs always put me in a good mood. If you didn't know, part of the reason I love the Arctic Monkeys is because Alex Turner sings the soundtrack for my favourite movie, Submarine.

Some of my favourite live videos: Feels Like We Only Go Backwards Tame Impala cover, Suck it and See Acoustic, Reading Festival 2009, Glastonbury 2007, Crying Lightning Live, Standing To Me (The Last Shadow Puppets)

Glen Hansard (and the Once Soundtrack): Recently I watched the movie Once, which I wholeheartedly recommend you watch. It's not a really well made film in terms of equipment or budget, but there's something special about it. It's funny and sweet, but completely real. Anyway, after watching Once, I really wanted to go and listen to the soundtrack which I hoped was on Spotify; and it was! I'm now spending my days singing softly along to Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova's voices (the two main actors in the film). I recommend the soundtrack (after watching the movie of course) along with Glen Hansard's album The Swell Season.

What have you been listening to?
