when the stars go blue
I know "Hallelujah" is most likely Leonard Cohen's masterpiece, but I've always always had a soft spot for "Suzanne". I think it had something to do with it being the first song of his that I'd heard (besides Hallelujah, of course) and oh! the lyrics just blow me away. Like a great song should, it makes you sort of not able to breathe-- catatonic in a good way-- if that even makes sense. Oranges and tea from China. I don't know how to explain it. Anyway, this playlist started off as one revolving around really great lyrics, and then it evolved into character sketches, and then it just kind of got away from me and became its own thing. Enjoy.
Also, I haven't much listened to Sean Lennon's music and I think I might give it a listen sometime soon. Isn't his lady pretty though? Here are some pretty pretty pictures of Lennon and Charlotte Kemp Muhl.
Lastly, I made a yummy concoction my best friend/former college roommate Abby and I would make all the time. We got the recipe from her older sister, who calls it Mud, but for posterity's sake we'll refer to it here as simply chocolate parfait. Super simple and easy to make.
