Mid-Week Music: You’re Gonna Miss Me by Lulu and the Lampshades

I know you all have seen Pitch Perfect (remember my long, rambling post about it?!)…

Steven and I watched it last night and of course it was just as hilarious as the first time!

But I remember loving the song Becca sings for her audition. And I finally found it!

It’s quirky, it’s sassy, and it’s infectious, and it’s originally by small duo named Lulu and the Lampshades. I am in love. 

“When I’m gone, when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone
You’re gonna miss me by my hair
You’re gonna miss me everywhere
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone”

Mid-Week Music: Middle Distance Runner by Sea Wolf

This song used to be one of my favorites in high school. It’s really touching, definitely worth a listen.

And I don’t know how or why, but it keeps popping up on Pandora.

Oh beautiful song, I am glad we are reunited! 

Well I’m so sad tonight
And the words won’t come out right
It’s been a long day on the track
And its stamina that I lack

So won’t you run to me tonight?
Tonight we could pretend that we’re just lovers
But I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

Well my heart is beating hard
And I’m off with a shot at the start
And my legs tremble from strain
But by the finish line I am drained

So won’t you run to me tonight?
Tonight let’s not talk about next summer
Cause I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner

Well I’m so proud tonight
Of the woman you’ve become
And I’m just too tired to fight
So my darling, I’ll succumb

But you’ll have to run to me tonight
Tonight I will love you forever
But I’ll only ever be a middle distance runner
