Throwback Thursday!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I have decided to dedicate a few days each week to a particular theme. I have often used Thursdays as a throwback day, but from now on it  will always officially be “Throwback Thursday.” I started doing a “Song of the Day” for my daughter back in 2009, and began this website in 2013. I have LOTS of music that I have shared over those years; therefore, I have decided to use this day to revisit one of the songs that I shared over the last 9 years.

Today I decided to share a song by Plug In Stereo that I shared on my daughter’s Facebook wall back in 2011. I just had to share this song today because of the song I shared yesterday. Plug In Stereo was the performance name of a young singer-songwriter named Trevor Dahl who played very sweet, emotive acoustic pop. I always enjoyed listening to his music and wondered what had become of him.

Much to my surprise, as I was looking up the names of the members of the group – Cheat Codes – there he was! I really had no idea that it was the same person, but I instantly recognized the name and face (hard to miss that fabulous hair!). I  just felt like I should share a song by him today. The two songs are about as completely opposite as possible and it is fun for me to see an artist evolve over time.

Song of the Day – “Up and Up” by Lennon & Maisy

I wanted to share this very cool cover by some incredible young artists and sisters – Lennon & Maisy. This song is originally by Coldplay and I always loved the song, but I have to admit that I am obsessed with this version. It is amazing!

Lennon & Maisy are sisters – ages 18 and 14, respectively. The duo were born in Ontario, Canada and come from a very musical family. The sisters are singers and songwriters and have been singing and playing numerous instruments all their lives. Music was their early passion and it seems that they were just born with this talent, having never taken any professional music lessons.

The pair seem to have such a sweet sister relationship and are absolutely adorable, plus they have the most incredible two-part harmony I have ever heard! I just love to watch them perform together. ❤

I have never watched the TV show, Nashville, but if you have you may recognize them.; they began appearing on the show in 2012. In addition to this song, you should definitely check out their cover of “Boom Clap” by Charli XCX.

Song of the Day – “The Rest of Our Life” by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill

This is a beautiful new song by two of Country Music’s biggest stars, and it is from the couple’s first-ever duets album. The album is set to be released on November 17.

The song was co-written by Ed Sheeran and, for those of you who are fans of his like I am, it definitely has his mark. Many of the lyrics and the melody seem like they came right out of one of his own songs. I love seeing artists work together across genres … what a compliment to all involved.

I adore the honesty of this song, and the video. Love is not always easy and life certainly is not a fairytale, but it is definitely worth it. My husband just said to me this past weekend, “I can’t imagine going through life without having you to share it with.” Sharing the rest of our life together is indeed a gift. ❤

“I don’t really care about those storm clouds brewing,

For as long as you’re here by my side,

Oh we’ll be young, oh we’ll be young, oh we’ll be young when we’re old.

I’ll be fine if my gray hair shows.

I’ll be fine if my waistline grows.

I’ll be fine even when time takes it’s toll.

I’ll stay young for the rest of my life with you.

We’ll stay young for the rest of our life.”

I hope you enjoy this new song.
