Time for another Music Monday brought to you by Always Me.
Rules from Lauren:
Every Monday share one or two of songs you’ve been enjoying lately. It doesn’t have to be a specific genre, new, or one of your favorites – just something you’d like to share with others. If possible, share a music or lyric video of the song and your thoughts on the song(s), artist(s), and/or music video(s).
If you would like to participate in Music Monday, please join the link up by sharing your post’s url over at this week’s post on Always Me.
Welcome back to the beginning of another new week!
This week I’ve got two songs I heard recently on the radio which I haven’t heard in FOREVER. Often music is a memory for me, and these two songs bring me right back to living in the dorm in college. Technically, Undone – The Sweater Song by Weezer was all the rage when I was in the dorms, but I personally like this song better.
I love the lyrics to all these songs. Beautiful song writing.
Island in the Sun by Weezer
Feel Us Shaking by The Samples
Bittersweet by Big Head Todd and the Monsters
And I didn’t hear this one on the radio this week, BUT Big Head Todd and the Monsters was essential college radio listening for a student at the University of Colorado in the late 1990s. And this classic performed Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater? Priceless.
Happy Monday listening!

I can’t say I’ve every heard of Big Head Todd and the Monsters, but that name alone is enough to make me want to know more about them. 🙂
Thanks for linking up!
Yeah they are probably pretty regional. BHTM are big around here (Colorado) because they are from Colorado. Check out their Sister Sweetly album! It’s from 1993, and still my favorite one. http://www.bigheadtodd.com/music/sister-sweetly
Nice. I remember Big Head Todd and the Monsters but I don’t think I ever listened to them? I heard the name a lot though in college…
They are pretty big in Colorado, but that’s because they are a home grown band. Their Sister Sweetly album from 1993 is still my favorite. http://www.bigheadtodd.com/music/sister-sweetly
