the way i am by ingrid michaelson. out of nowhere this song has been stuck in my head since sunday morning. it's not like i heard it in the grocery store or on the car radio...out of nowhere, i tell you. i interpreted this weird occurrence as a sign that the way i am should be the featured song for monday musicality. the song is really sweet and catchy. not my usual m.o., but i think it helps kick off a new week in the right way. plus, i'm a sucker for a song with clapping in it.
i first heard this song years ago on an episode of grey's anatomy. i have to admit that i find most of my new music either through great movies or television shows. (i always thought the person whose job it was to select music for movies, television shows, or commercials (official title: music arranger?) had a pretty amazing gig.) another off beat place i find new music is by reading magazines like vanity fair and g.q. for some reason, i find really great new music in men's magazines. yea, i know, kind of strange.
because i'm always on the search, where do you find new music?
