Five on Friday - Current Favorite Songs

I love music and I have a wide variety of music that enjoy.  Most of my favorites would fall under alt-pop or even a bit of Top 40 with some indie stuff thrown in too.  Fortunately we have several radio stations in my city that cater to just about every mood I get for music!  I thought for fun I'd share a few of my favorites that I always crank up if they come on while I'm in the car.

I Bet My Life - Imagine Dragons 
I haven't always loved everything from Imagine Dragons, but there is something about this song that just puts me in a good mood anytime I hear it.  It's just got a happy, upbeat, feel good vibe going.

Taylor Swift - Out of the Woods
This song from her new album isn't getting much radio play yet, but it's my favorite.  I like the other songs that are getting air time, but there's something I really love about this song - maybe because it reminds me of something Debbie Gibson would have sung back in the day and it reminds me of sitting in my room as a pre-teen and rewinding and fastforwarding through cassette tapes to listen to my favorite songs!  Whatever it is, I just can't help loving Taylor Swift or this particular song!

Brandi Carlile - Wherever is Your Heart
Brandi Carlile can almost do no wrong in my eyes.  I've been a fan of hers since she was first on the music scene.  She's got a great folk vibe and she is absolutely amazing live.  Her songs tell such wonderful stories.  This new one is a bit on the catchy side, but I really like it.  I can't wait for her new album.

Ellie Goulding - Love Me Like You Do
Apparently this is going to be on the 50 Shades of Gray soundtrack.  At any rate, I love Ellie Goulding, and when I first heard this song the other day I had to find it online so I could listen to it again.  It also has a quality that reminds me of music I listened to as a teenager so maybe I like it because it makes me nostalgic?  I'm not sure what it is, but I do like it.

The Decemberists - Make You Better
This is another group that can pretty much do no wrong to me.  Nate and I are huge fans.  And this video is all full of win because it has Nick Offerman (aka Ron Swanson from Parks and Rec) and it's so tongue and cheek and funny.  I had a chance to stream the entire new album from these guys this week and like pretty much everything they do, it's super awesome.  They're coming here in concert in March and I'm all sorts of regretful I didn't try to get tickets actually even though we've seen them live before.

So there you go, a peek inside my musical head!  What kinds of songs are currently on rotation for you?  I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!
