“I will not take my love away”
I’ve wanted to post a Matt Wertz song for quite a while now. Stacy reminded me tonight that I hadn’t yet. We listened to a few of his songs, and this one was the first one that I felt was right for the site. Just the other day, I was listening to a song playing on the TV as the end credits were rolling by at the end of a movie. It was a Matt Wertz song. This one – “I Wll Not Take My Love Away” – is fairly short, but just long enough for him to tell us exactly what he wanted to with the song. I love it when a song leaves you wanting more at the end. It’s usually the #1 reason I hit the replay button, and also serves as evidence that I’m hooked (on a feelin’).
Matt finally gets posted here with this amazing guitar/piano/vocal combo. This is no cheap radio song, but I’m sure I’ll be singing it (or at least humming). It’s a great, wonderful song about fixating on the wonderful times summer gave us, only to realize they’re now gone, and being sadly nostalgic.
Ahh, summer love. :) Enjoy, and thank Matt Nathanson by buying his new CD.
“Photographs & Memories”
If you didn’t know, Jason Reeves helped Colbie Caillat cowrite most of the songs on her new CD “CoCo”. If you are a fan of this site, you might remember I posted a song by Colbie already, before the CD was released. This was not well-received by the RIAA, but thankfully Colbie’s online marketing agency saw fit to give me clearance to post the music afterward.
Enjoy This song by Jason. He’s pretty good on the guitar and a good singer on his own.

She’ll be making big news by tomorrow. This song was just added to iTunes today. It’s a pretty good cover. A non-produced version is on youtube. Check it out. This version aired on MTV at the end of the season premiere of “The Hills” (3rd season). Don’t start. It’s not my fault I started watching it. Someone twisted my arm.
Marié has been recently in the studio (re?)recording 3 songs. You can find them on her myspace page (linked below). I love Rihanna’s version of this too, but I like acoustic takes on popular songs even more. Enjoy.
Quantic & Nickodemus
“Mi Swing es Tropical”
I fell in love with this tune the first time I heard it in a commercial for Apple’s iPod. This Spanish number has been stuck in my head for days. Posting it here was the only way to get it out of my system. This song is featured on the CD associated with this post as well as a CD for Quantic, since this track was apparently a collaborative effort.
I hope this song is as fun for you as it is for me.
