Darlings, It’s Been Too Long

Video

I don’t know what happened, but I’ve REALLY neglected the Flying Kiwi lately. (“Lately”). Mi dispiac, gente!
To ease your pain, listen to some Dylan LeBlanc. An artist who, to my joy, is nearly two whole years older than I am, (let’s not mention the fact that he started being awesome publicly before he turned 22).

Also, today I saw the most beautiful young man ever. He was GORGEOUS. And I don’t mean he was sort of attractive, or pretty handsome, or anything like that. No, I mean he was absolutely, perfectly, astonishingly beautiful. Only for one moment, ever so fleeting, did I lay eyes on him, but WOAH BOY. Can’t believe I didn’t stop him and demand a photograph and/or his name. Sigh. Talk about missed chances and regrets, man.

Ezra Is A Four Letter Word

Only just heard George Ezra (whom I sadly did not see live yesterday, *tears*)’s cover of Counting Stars, and I like. I like, therefore I share.

George Ezra is the shit right now.

Also, he is 1,5 years younger than I am, which – naturally – makes me feel unaccomplished and old and omg people that I think are awesome are now starting to be younger than me, what’s the world come to?

Fleeting Dreams Of Leighton

Video

Leighton Meester! Yay. I loved Blair (team Blair ftw!) on Gossip Girl – which I don’t think is a brilliant show, but I thoroughly enjoyed it regardless – and I was quite excited for her music career way back when, except it was all kind of shit… So you can see how this cover would make me happy 🙂
Their voices are really great together, too.

Total Eclipse Of The Not-So Guilty Pleasure

Video

As a reader/follower of this blog, you should know that Total Eclipse of the Heart is my all-time favourite bellow-along/guilty pleasure/80’s vibe awesome. Clearly, covering it and bringing it renewed attention is a good thing, hence the good-thingness of this particular cover by Sleeping At Last. I don’t like that he (they?) changed the lyrics, but I’ll forgive it.
