Confession Time

I have a confession to make. It started when I had my kids. At first I’d only do it in the car, but now it’s gotten worse. I do it all day long.


Here it is. I listen to bad music. SOB! I know. I used to have better taste, but then I had the kids and it all went downhill. I stopped listening to “my” music and put on the radio. I had the best of intentions. I just wanted no swearing (strangely enough I do not swear in front of my children. As soon as they go to bed though I like to curse like a sailor), and the radio seemed the easiest route to get that. Sure, is it fun to try to shout non-swear words over the swear words in songs? Yes. But it is just too damn hard.

Now I have the radio on ALL DAY LONG in my kitchen, listening to the same 12 songs over and over again. It was really cute when my daughter was singing along to Taylor Swift, but sort of less sweet when she’s singing Whistle by Flo Rida (which is unmistakably a song about sucking dick). So I need an intervention, which is where you come in.

I need some new music.

My tastes are pretty eclectic, so I’m willing to listen to just about anything. I’d still like to avoid hardcore swearing though.

Hard limits:

No country

No rar, rar, rar, head banging music

No Bieber

So, if you’d like to leave me your latest fav band or song, I’d appreciate it. Or, better yet, if you want to make me a sweet mixed tape and mail it to me, that’d be rad.


  1. Jason Mraz, Joshua Radin, Norah Jones, Schuyler Fisk, Lenka, Priscilla Ahn (kind of folksy, but good music!)

  2. For some reason, I didn't see this when you posted this and only noticed it now when I thought to answer the question, "Hey, what happened to Eva's blog?"

    Anyway, I have a mix that I made in January. I think it's great, you'll probably hate it, but it classifies as new/different music so I thought I'd offer it up. Hit me up on Facebook messages or email or something if you want the tracklisting or a link to download.
