First Dance Fridays | Indie Favorites

Happy Friday!! I have some indie tunes for you all today. These are my favorites from the “indie” genre, which probably means they are more popular in general, which may, in turn, make them less appreciated by true indie fans… I don’t know, to be honest, I’m not that cool. If I like a song, I like it, and if I don’t, I don’t. It doesn’t matter to me how well known or popular it is. That being said, these songs are awesome.:)

Sweet Disposition – The Temper Trap

Sweet disposition
Never too soon
Oh, reckless abandon
Like no one’s watching you
A moment of love, a dream, a laugh
A kiss, a cry, our rights, our wrongs
A moment of love, a dream, a laugh
A moment of love, a dream, a laugh

No One’s Gonna Love You – Band Of Horses

And anything to make you smile
It is my better side of you to admire
But they should never take so long
Just to be over then back to another one

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one’s gonna love you more than I do

Do You Realize?? – The Flaming Lips

Do you realize that you have the most beautiful face
Do you realize we’re floating in space
Do you realize that happiness makes you cry
Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die

And instead of saying all of your goodbyes, let them know
You realize that life goes fast
It’s hard to make the good things last
You realize the sun doesn’t go down
It’s just an illusion caused by the world spinning round

Simple Song – The Shins

I know that things can really get rough when you go it alone
Don’t go thinking you gotta be tough, to play like a stone
Could be there’s nothing else in our lives so critical
As this little home

My life in an upturned boat, marooned on a cliff
You brought me a great big flood
And you gave me a lift
Girl, what a gift

Take Care – Beach House

Stand beside it, we can’t hide the way it makes us glow
It’s no good unless it grows, feel this burning love of mine
Deep inside the ever-spinning, tell me does it feel
It’s no good unless it’s real, hill sides burning
Wild-eyed turning till we’re running from it

I’d take care of you if you’d ask me to
In a year or two

Great picks! I gotta remember to come back & look at some of your song choices when I’m trying to find a song for a wedding slideshow, like I was having trouble with yesterday. Man…some of these would have worked perfect!

Me too, doesn’t really matter how popular the songs are – as long as they speak (or sing) to me. Great picks!
