And I Can't Get "She & Him" Out of My Mind

I don't claim to know a lot about music.  I have been lucky enough to be a {Pandora} listener for quite some time and that has lead me to finding some great musical acts.  I also have some great music loving friends that have helped me along the way to create the "ultimate random ipod pink mini". Plus, my love for movie soundtracks has helped a lot too.  

I wouldn't take credit for finding {She & Him}.  

During my last week in Chapel Hill a friend suggested we listen to their new CD on the way to the movies.  It was quite disappointing for her and I, when I said, "My car only has a cassette player." 

But I remembered what she said.  This is the band that {Zooey Deschanel}, the actress from 500 Days of Summer, is the lead singer.  

It took me till last week during a trailer for 500 Days of Summer that I remembered I wanted to check out this band, {She & Him}.  Well, I am sure glad I did.  

iTunes described, {She & Him} as a alternative group.  I would say it's music is sweet 60's inspired lyrics with flair in musical accompaniment.  Think a little folksy and country. Deschanel wrote eight of the tracks and co-wrote one other.  Who would of thought?  The lyrics are about love, heartbreak, smiling and are upbeat.  Perfect for singing along.  

My favorite track picks are Why do You Let me Stay Here?, Take it Back, Black Hole and You Really Got a Hold on Me. Of course, I really have enjoyed listing to the entire CD and that's why "I can't get it out of my mind".  Check it out.

{Stay Tuned}.
