i lykke you, meowww: Lykke Li and Cat PowerPosted: July 25, 2009
I’m back from NYC. AMAZING MONTH. Hollllyyy shit I wish I was still there. UGH.
Let’s not get too depressing now….
I decided to compile some songs to form the soundtrack of my trip…the second each song begins..the image of THE one and only Empire State pops in my brain…. the nightlife, concerts, movies, shopping, inside jokes…whatever!
New York Girls- Morningwood
Boys Boys Boys- Lady GaGa
Man in the Mirror- Michael Jackson
Sweet Disposition- The Temper Trap
December 1963- The Four Seasons
You Make My Dreams Come True- Hall and Oates
Nowhere to Run- Martha and the Vandellas
Us- Regina Spektor
Beat It- Michael Jackson
Day and Night- Kid Cudi
Quelqu’ un M’a Dit- Carla Bruni
What A Feeling- Irene Cara
If You Leave- OMD
Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough- Michael Jackson
Stuck Inside of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again- Cat Power
I’m Good I’m Gone- Lykke Li
(Had to include some MJ!)
Now, let’s discuss the last two…Cat Power and Lykke Li…AMAZINGLY INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN. Not only are they gorgeous, they have ridiculous style AND they can SING god dammit! Perfect people…
Cat Power (aka Chan Marshall) started her singing career 17 years ago when she was 20 years old in NYC (jeezzz she does not look 37!) Her voice is freakishly similar to Bob Dylan’s (can I be this woman???)
Lykke Li is a 23 year old Swedish singer whos music BLEEDS runway show. Her songs bring a certain “overly skinny, gamine girl drenched in designer duds” image to my mind.
Both chickass began their US singing careers in Brooklyn…gahhh love it.
This is Cat Power with Karl! Girl is living the life….
