MUSIC MONDAY 4

Hi everyone!  I hope your weekend was as restful as mine.  I swear, I didn't move off the couch once (except to get my phone or computer charger lol)  Anyways, it's Monday, and that means Music Monday!  I honestly love writing these posts.  Music is such a big part of my life and I love sharing it with y'all.

As some of you may know, I fulfilled one of my bucket list items and saw the Black Keys live on Thursday!  I went with my friends Merryn and Kevin, and my boyfriend Carson.  The show was in Philips Arena, which is pretty massive (18,250 people!!) and we had floor tickets.  It was pretty amazing to be in a venue that big surrounded by people who loved the same kind of music as me!  

For those of you who are unfamiliar (or sort of unfamiliar) with the Black Keys, they are a rock duo formed in Akrin, Ohio in 2001.  Their music is pretty well-known.  Most people would at least recognize "Gold on the Ceiling," "Lonely Boy," or "Tighten Up."

The group has been nominated for 12 Grammys and have won 7 of those 12.  I think that's a pretty good record.

My personal favorite of their songs is "Little Black Submarines," which has been used in an episode of Criminal Minds (my favorite show!).  It's also got this super cool remix with Kanye West and other rappers.  It's a great song with meaningful lyrics.  Although it starts out slow, it kicks up pretty quick.
