Impress me with your song choice. Leave a comment.

O.K. So I use to be one those folks who took music very seriously, and even though I’m an old fart now, I still like to hear about interesting music that’s out there.

Suggest something in the comments! Maybe even let me know what that song is good for (for studying, being mellow, being forlorn-like, for parties, over dinner, etc).

Here’s my suggestion. I stumbled across “Camillo the Magician” by local band Said the Whale a few months ago. Maybe one of the catchiest tunes I’ve heard in a while.
