Tune in Tuesday: Alt-J, Ingrid Michaelson, a-ha

481520_put_the_records_on

Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature in which bloggers get to showcase another one of their loves, music! The feature was originally created and hosted by Ginger over at GReads! but can now be found over at Kate’s Tales of Books and Bands.

This is so weird because when I first started listening to Alt-J it was a love/hate – or I should say hate/love experience but now I’m kind of obsessed with them and can’t stop featuring music by them each week. lol

BTW – they have a great Spotify Sessions if you subscribe.

Alt-J – Something Good



Ingrid Michaelson – This is War The chorus is a bit too pop for me but I love the song and lyrics



a-ha – Take on Me The best part of the Billboard Music Awards is when Morten Harket of a-ha came out to sing Take on me during the Pitbull/Christina Aguilera performance. I loved this song and the video is STILL amazing!

  2. Ooh, ooh, finally a song I know!! I love both versions of Take On Me, but especially the Pitbull and Christina Aguilera one. I don't know what it is about him, because if you really look at him he's not all that, but I can't help but think Pitbull is one sexy dude. It must be the dancing. ;)

  4. I haven't listened (or if I have it hasn't stuck with me) to Something Good yet. I did like Matilda on the Spotify sessions a lot.

  6. Ingrid Michaelson...I am trying to remember if I know who that is. She sounds so familiar but I can't recall if I've heard this song or any others by her. I like it though :)

    1. She was new to me. I found her while looking for other songs. Very pretty voice and lyrics.

  8. I LOVED it when A-Ha (or the lead singer anyway) came out!! It was such a surprise, and good for Christina and Pitbull for recognizing the original song :) And you're right! The music vid is still one of my favorites!!

    1. It's nice when they acknowledge the source. That doesn't seem to happen much these days. It's still a great song and video!

  10. That A-ha video is one of my favorite videos ever and I can't stop myself from turning it up when Take on Me comes on the radio. I miss the days when MTV was about music.
