Taylor Swift ft. Imogen Heap - Clean

It's Taylor Swift and Imogen Heap. I'm ok with it.

I'm saving this instance of Music Discovery Sunday for today, because the album, Taylor Swift's 1989, was not dropped until today. It was leaked prior to its actual release because humans suck, but out of respect for the artist I refuse to introduce my readers even a day early without explicit permission (which I do not have, so... Monday).

I got a fancy little sneak peak at this particular song, Clean, and, much to my chagrin, I like it... a lot.

SIDE NOTE: All of you Swifties can get your panties out of a wad, ok? 
I have an irrational (albeit quickly melting) dislike of Taylor Swift, 
and I'm going to hold onto it until I have 
absolutely no ground to stand on as is my way.

I am of the opinion that Imogen Heap can do no wrong, so adding her to this track on the new album was a wise choice on Swift's part, at least to garner my attention (because I'm sure that's Taylor's main concern: whether or not Stefers the Great listens to her music) as well as others from my demographic.

All of that being said, I'm really looking forward to the rest of this album. Taylor Swift is slowly but surely shifting my opinion from irrational dislike to earnest fan. I don't know how she's doing it (other than releasing awesome songs lately), but I respect it. Job well done so far, Ms. Swift. I'm excited that your albums aren't all about boys and post relationship smears.

What things are purple? Make a list.

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:

Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…

"Yellow List"

What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious.
Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list.
