Love is all

Earlier today when I was at work I came across this opinion piece about artist The Tallest Man on Earth. I was so happy to be reminded of his songs before I took the train up to the Berkshires tonight. It was all I listened too as I rolled into upstate. This is one of my favorite songs to listen to over and over again. What do you think, Hart Beat? What song are you listening to tonight?

Well I walk upon the river like it’s easier than land
Evil’s in my pocket and your will is in my hand
Oh, your will is in my hand
And I’ll throw it in the current that I stand upon so still
Love is all, from what I’ve heard, but my heart’s learned to kill
Oh, mine has learned to kill

“Love Is All” by The Tallest Man on Earth
I even love the music video for the song.

All I wanna do is talk

I know I’ve written about G. serenading me on guitar in our Brooklyn apartment but lately I’ve been trying to practice so someday she and I can play together. I have a couple of songs under my belt and this is the next one that I want to learn. Unfortunately I can’t find the chords that I like on the interenet. Anyone know where I can get it? (For another Big Deal song on Hart Beat visit this page here.)

I went and lost my keys again
So you let me sleep inside your pen
I know it’s hard to find a friend
But you knew you had to let the right one in
It’s ok, I’m just a kid
It’s ok, I’ll get over it

“Talk” by Big Deal

Jolene and brooklyn

Today was one of my favorite days in Brooklyn so far. This morning, G. and I met some friends at an amazing brunch place called The Manhattan Inn in our neighborhood. The food was amazing and they were having this special of free punch with brunch (oh so clevah right?). Anyway, R. and another friend A. that’s staying with us looking for an apartment all wandered around Williamsburg after the punch and brunch combo. It was a beautiful day and Brooklyn was lovely by the water. I did a lot of shopping too, got some cowboy boots, a Willie Nelson record with this song on the B-side and these two amazing looking books. (One takes place in Madrid!)

Anyway, now I’m siting in my apartment while G. plays me beautiful music on her guitar. One song that I’ve been requesting a lot lately has been “Jolene” by Dolly Parton. Here’s an amazing version sung by Laura Marling and Mumford & Sons. (Of course though, G. sings it better.)
