Shimmer Like Gold


Allow me to preface this mix with the following: silliness ensues.

Back story: iTunes shuffle can be mighty hilarious and/or clever. First, it played July, July by The Decemberists. Next up was Fiona Apples Pale September, followed by Flowers in December by Mazzy Star. Notice a bit of a pattern there? You bet I did! So for the sake of being a dork, I was curious if I had a song titled with each month of the year in my iTunes library. I did. (And with songs to spare.) I warned you that silliness was abound! I probably should have mentioned dorkiness, too. So I picked my favourites, and made myself a little mix.

Thirty Days Hath September, April, June and November

01. Tori Amos – Black-Dove (January)
02. Architecture in Helsinki – One Heavy February
03. Anya Marina – Waters of March

04. Simon & Garfunkel – April Will Come She Will
05. Alpha – May
06. Eberg – June

(♥) 07. The Decemberists – July, July
08. Rilo Kiley – August
09. Fiona Apple – Pale September

10.  Broken Bells – October
11. Azure Ray – November
12. Mazzy Star – Flowers in December

Bonus: 13. Stars – The Calendar Girl

Im such a dork. But it made for a funny little mix. And I kind of like it.

If you only have a few quick minutes for a tune, make it the one marked with a heart ♥: it’s my most loved song of the bunch.
