[LISTEN] HUMP DAY MIX - 10/24/12

We're very excited to bring you this week's Hump Day Mix as it has quite a few country songs from the ABC hit drama, Nashville! That's right, country music. In fact, we even included the new Ester Dean single "I Can't Make You Love Me" an upbeat dance cover of Bonnie Raitt's 1991 hit. With the release of Taylor Swift's, Red, on Monday, we've added the song "22" to give you guys more reasons to love the album as much as I do. Rounding out this week's HDM are indie songs from Swiss Lips, Trails and Ways, Them Swoops and Satin Jackets. Hit play and enjoy!

This week's Monday Music Earworm goes to Free Energy! The 5-piece rockers from Philadelphia are comprised of Evan Wells, Scott Wells, Paul Sprangers, Sheridan Fox and Nicholas Shuminsky. We included their mellow track "Dance All Night" in last week's Hump Day Mix. The song is the second single off of their sophomore album, Lovesign, dropping on January 15, 2013. The band got their claim to fame back in March 2010 with the critically acclaimed release of their debut album Stuck on Nothing. In fact, Rolling Stone Magazine included Free Energy in an article about the best new bands of 2010. So two years later and a label change, Free Energy is back with NEW energy! They've parted ways from their old label and will be releasing Lovesign independently through Free People. Be sure to give this song a proper spin. It's even available as a free download! Check out their album teaser video below. We're kind of excited to hear the rest of the songs from Lovesign.

This week we are flashing back all the way to the 80s to 1987! I was six years old and living in Thailand. So I can honestly say that I've only heard these songs after coming to America. Whenever I hear Atlantic Starr's "Always" I'm reminded of my 7th and 8th grade dances. The song would come on at the end of the dance and you did not want to be the last one standing without a partner. I don't know if it was because I was friends with all of the girls in my class that I never had a probelm when it came to the last dance of the night or because they knew I wasn't going to get inappropriate with them. *I guess I'll never know.

I was pretty shocked to see the number of songs on this week's mix that hadn't been used before. For those of you who listen to the FF mixes week after, I'm sure you'd be shocked that I haven't used Fleetwood Mac's "Little Lies" (LOVE them), The Bangles' "Walking Like An Egyptian" (#1 song in 1987), Whiney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)" and Bon Jovi "Wanted Dead or Alive." It was a BIG year for amazing music. Hit play!
