Music Mood: The Big Chill

Lately I have been listening to the soundtrack to the movie The Big Chill.  The album is amazing and I have been playing it for the past few days.  My family is old school and we have The Big Chill record and a record player so I play the album on that instead of from iTunes.  Let me tell you this was a nice refreshing break from the overplayed pop songs on the radio.  Love  this album and I should go old school more often!  What is you favorite oldies album or soundtrack?  Check out the movie too!  It’s just as good as the soundtrack.

** Funny story about The Dirty Heads: In college I discovered them through Youtube and was hooked on their songs. I downloaded all of them!! This was circa 2008 they were not as popular as they are now, their songs were not on the radio, my friends didn’t know who they were, and most importantly I loved the songs I heard.  The songs I downloaded are still on my IPod today  I fell in love with them and their songs but only had their songs from 2008.  When I heard My Sweet Summer on the radio I was like something about this songs, melody, sounds so familiar and when they announced the artist I knew why!

So yes I knew this band before they were cool (JK they were always cool!) and on the radio.  Their older songs are still my favorite!  So guys if you happen to read and or see this Congrats on the success and I still love your music!!
