Don't take life too serious.

Twisted Mix Tape


Nothing is better than hearing one of your favorite bands, play your favorite songs live. What’s even better to me, is hearing your favorite song unplugged. That’s what this week’s mixed tape is all about. Songs that blew me away live and/or unplugged.

Mumford and Sons – Roll Away Your Stone

I had already fallen in love with this band but when I saw this unplugged set, wow! This song, in particular, had me jamming out.

Alicia Keys – If I Ain’t Got You

She’s one of favorite female artist of all times. When I heard she was playing an unplugged set, I was ecstatic. This is one of my favorites.

Sara Bareilles – Gravity

I first saw Sara Bareilles because she was opening for the opening act. I normally, like everyone else, would still be drinking in the parking lot, but I was pregnant at the time. I lucked out! As soon as I heard her start to sing, I was captivated. This is the song that sold me. …and still one of my favorites.

Third Eye Blind – God of Wine

Every time I have seen 3rd Eye, they have come out to encore with this one. I look forward to it every time.

Ani DiFranco – Out of Habit

My favorite little folk singer! I can’t tell you how many times I have seen her live but this is one that I ALWAYS hope she will play. This particular video doesn’t capture a picture but a live version that is my all time favorite. You get to hear her personality in discussion in the beginning. Love it!

  1. Love Mumford and sons! Must check out the others. Sadly, I spend most afternoons listening to talk radio and have lost touch with what’s cool.
    I’ve been reading all your posts, but my dodgy iPhone or broadband is failing me and seems to give up in the evenings when I do all my reading. So I’m still here, just a little silent. (I see you found your funny bone in the comments section of that post – about the same one time my phone stopped working, also see you’ve connected with some other bloggers I follow too! How cool is that?!) :0)

    1. Oh I have no idea what’s cool or relevant anymore. If it wasn’t for Pandora, I wouldn’t know a single new song past 2012 I swear.

      I had to check out the other bloggers you recommended in your article and connected with a few right away. I found a few others back when you nominated me and others for an award. You have excellent taste 🙂

    1. I’d say 5 or 6 times. Are you a fan? I was a senior in high school (99) when their first album came out and it was sort of an anthem for us.

      1. I remember them, but besides a couple of songs, never really got into them
        Still, nothing like being able to see a band again and again and still get a kick out of them.

      2. I’ve seen Ani DiFranco at least 10 times. I used to drive all over with some girlfriends to catch her shows. Even now, if she plays up my way, I’m there.

    1. Thanks Deanna. I’m a huge fan of both. I can’t tell you how much I listened to Sara’s Brave when I first started this blog. It was somewhat of an anthem for me. And Mumford and Sons just plain kick ass.

  2. This is great, I think Mumford and Sons are better live!
    I saw Third Eye Blind live in the 90’s, then ran into them at a fancy schmancy sushi restaurant! It was way cool. I loved the show, and I think it was the only reason I played their CD so much!
    Thank you sooooo much for joining in this week!

    1. I hope I can see them live some day. They haven’t made it my way yet but when they do, I’m all over it.

      How cool that you ran in to 3rd Eye. Were you trying not to be star struck?? I would and then no doubt would make a fool of myself.
