Flashback Friday

Every Waking Moment by Citizen Cope (2006)

This album brings back so many memories! I vividly remember the first time I heard it. I was working at WVU's radio station and someone had the CD playing on their laptop. I instantly made it a point to make friends with that person. I don't remember their name or what they look like today, but if I did, I would thank them for introducing me to one of my favorite albums! The next day, I went out and bought my own copy. I listened to that CD regularly for an entire year. I discovered it in the fall and was still playing it at the bar at home in Pittsburgh during the summer months. I've seen Citizen Cope a couple times and he is so talented!

I love the entire album but here a few of my favorite tracks...

"John Lennon"
I just love everything about "John Lennon". The lyrics are powerful and Cope sings them with such an enormous amount of passion. This song always puts me in an interesting mood. It's definitely one of my favorite songs from my early 20s! It's a smart song but I still find it to be very sexy... then again, I find intelligent men to be hot... why not music as well?! :)

"All Dressed Up"
This song takes me back to the Summer of 2007. I was 21 and going out every night (not that the drinking age ever stopped me before). This was the song that I blasted in my car's stereo to and from all my regular spots. I love it.

You and I was meant to be together in love...
Where can I find a guy to write me a letter/poem/song like this?

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
