Blog-Tember | Day 25: My JAM

Today's prompt: Three Four songs you are connecting with right now.*

Cold War Kids: First

Okay I looooovvveeee this song and it's fun indie rock sound. I bought it for 69 cents on iTunes. I listen to it on repeat. What is this song about really? I don't know. I'm not sure I want to know because it's my jam and if turns out to be some weeeeiiiirrrd meaning then oh well. I feel my soul connecting to this song and I think that's enough for me to love it. 

Michael Buble: I'll Be Home For Christmas

MOMENT OF TRUTH: I may have listened to this on a particular stressful day at work after running into Starbucks for a pumpkin spice latte. I was full of frenzy and this legitimately calmed me down. It is so soothing. Yes it's September. Yes I love it. 

Taylor Swift: Bad Blood

Inside of me is a teenager full of angst and fire. I was an extremely good and compliant child growing up so I guess my 20's have been all about letting my inner teenager off the hook and letting her do whatever she damn well pleases. (within reason of course) T.Swift just gets me like that. Long after my dating and breaking up sagas are over I'm still singing the songs because #teenageangst was never set free. #katyperry #dramallama

Imagine Dragons: On Top Of The World

Recently I've really been digging Imagine Dragons and this specific song. I liked their older stuff but I also like their new slightly folkish sound. Scott started listening to them while he cooks in the evenings and I think  it just rubbed off on me. I know it's slightly cliche now because well they have already starred in The Muppets on ABC.

*NOTE: I am a bit insecure about my music preferences. I want to be cool and deep and use big words when I talk about music but my brain feels bored doing that. ** I don't listen for intellectual enjoyment nor do I prefer obscure hip indie bands that no one has ever heard of. I'm SO MAIN STREAM. I wanna be shameless about it but it's hard. I retired from my Christian-Contemporary-Saturation-Station and haven't fully emerged musically since. 

** Also I have attended an organ concert. #intellectual

What songs are you connecting with? Tell me about your jam! 


  1. Two thumbs up! I really like your music selection.

  2. Great choices Heather! You so made me smile with the Michael Buble Christmas song :) Everyone at work has been talking about Christmas today and I saw a tweet yesterday saying there was 92 days or something till Santa visits :) How did that happen? It feels like yesterday I was waiting (not so) patiently for spring and here we are looking at autumn again :) Have a fabulous weekend, huggles xx

    1. Oh my goodness! How did that happen?! 92 days till Christmas. It's still in the 90s here. I guess one can dream right?

  3. Babe, you have been to 4 or 5 organ concerts! Those all count! Love you!
