Song of the Week

July Flame by Laura Veirs

I’m really digging this week’s song, recommended by one of my favorite readers, Dee. This one has a really unique, folk/gospel sound and the video is just too cool. One of the reasons I started Song of the Week was so we could all find new music, and I don’t think I would have found this one on my own.

Hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did!

Also, just a reminder that if you want a free bookplate to give away for the holidays, you have to send an email to prophecypress@aol.com with your address. PLEASE don’t leave your requests in comments here on the site, both to protect your privacy (address on the internet? NOES!) and because Rebekah is managing the bookplate requests through the prophecypress email address.

Skin by Sixx AM

This weeks song was brought to you by Brandi Pudlio. I’ve never heard of this band and I’ve never heard this song, but it’s really beautiful.

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Also, don’t forget that you can still get free signed bookplates for the holidays. They make a really nice addition to a book for the reader on your holiday list, and I’m happy to personalize them (for you or the recipient).

Just my little holiday gift to you!

Song of the Week – Mr. Know It All

This week’s song, Mr. Know It All, was nominated by Krystal! I admit that I used to love a lot of Kelly’s songs, but I haven’t listened to her in awhile. I enjoyed this one. Hope you do too!

On another note, tomorrow I’ll be kicking off my annual holiday bookplate giveaway, so be sure to check back if you’d like to give a copy of one of the Prophecy books as a gift this holiday season. I’m happy to send you up to three bookplates personalized any way you’d like. It makes a thoughtful gift for the reader on your list!

Simple Math by Manchester Orchestra

I first found Manchester Orchestra about three years ago when I become a Brand New fanatic and realized a lot of people who liked BN on Myspace (Ha! Remember Myspace?!) also liked Manchester Orchestra.

But I admit that I forget about MO sometimes, so I’m glad Shelley Koon suggested this song. I haven’t heard it yet, and it reminded me how much I love this band.

Thanks, Shelley! And please keep the Song of the Week recs coming by sending an email to prophecypress@aol.com with “Song of the Week” in the Subject line.Even if I don’t choose your song that week, when I have time, I go back and choose from old submissions.

Avalon by Roxy Music

This week’s song was easy to choose! That’s because it was nominated by M.D. and seconded by Laura.

What can I say? It wins by popular vote.
😉

And i have to say, I love, love, LOVE this sound. I’m sure it totally tags me as an 80s girl, but I’m okay with that.

Enjoy!

Trying hard to speak and fighting with my weak hand…

This week’s song, X & Y, is by one of my favorite bands, Coldplay, and was nominated by Emily. I love all of Coldplay’s music, but Emily nominated this one because she said it reminded her of the Prophecy books and because she feels happy and peaceful when she listens to it.

I could totally use some happy and peaceful right now.

Hope you guys get some out of this, too.

Save Me by Golden State

I’m giving credit to Laura for this week’s song. She nominated the Tyler Blackburn cover, but I had to put up the original by Golden State because I think I like it just a little bit better (though they’re both amazing).

Plus, this video is a little tribute to my home state, and even though I’ve become a total New Yorker and consider it home in every sense of the word (New York rules), I think there will always be some California girl in me.

Song of the Week – Mind Reader by Versamerge

This ones comes to you from Jana. I like it! It reminds me a little of Paramore.

Don’t worry if your song wasn’t chosen this week. I get lots of recommendations and can only choose one a week, but I often go back and look through the old ones when look for a Song of the Week. If you’d like to nominate a song, send it to prophecypress@aol.com with “Song of the Week” in the Subject line.

In the meantime, enjoy!

Song of the Week – Hurricane by Augustana

It’s our first week back with Song of the Week and this one’s from the Zink house – and specifically, Caroline. She listens to them constantly while she’s on the computer. This is a perfect song to listen to when you’re in a really mellow mood.

And what a voice. Love!

Enjoy! And don’t forget to send your song recommendations to prophecypress@aol.com with “Song of the Week” in the Subject line.

You’ll Be Mine by the Pierces

I’m totally loving this week’s song, You’ll Be Mine by the Pierces. It was nominated last week by Chrissy, on of my favorite readers. I’m so glad I went back and looked at that thread. I would have hated to miss this one.

Also really love the gorgeous video!

<3

P.S. Don’t forget that you can help one of my readers get his mom back on the transplant list and win a manuscript edit or original song by Kenneth by bidding in our charity auction!
