Like it’s the perfect vibe, I can put it on any time. EL: Talking Heads, This Must Be the Place (Naïve Melody). Taylor Swift, pretty big time artist, do you think of these things as guilty pleasures or does music not have to be an issue of commercial or non-commercial.
That was a song that was recently cited somewhere as one of the greatest love songs of all time. MW: I think that’s a really great and important question and something that I think, living in Silverlake, and being a Eastside hipster for life, I've had to struggle with letting go of in general.
Have you thought about it from that particular perspective? You know, its sort of easy to be pretentious about that, and not even give it a chance because it's commercial and blah blah blah.
MW: You know, I have thought about it from the perspective of it being a love song, Especially, there's a couple lyrics in there that, to me, feel like the most beautiful way of loving someone -- about being open and the sort of the way they are behind their eyes. MW: The next song I have is actually from by a new up and coming artist, you probably haven't heard of her yet. But the facts are, you know, sure there's a level of media promotion or whatever but there's something in it that really sounds good.
And you'll sort of always love all those people no matter what, no matter how the dynamic shifts, but this song to me encompasses that feeling of loving it and being in it and sort of that encapsulated youth, but still being aware of the sad changes that nothing gold can stay and sort of letting that go, but still being positive about it.
I guess I'm a little bit biased because I do happen to be dating the artist.There was a time where we were hanging out every day, every night, just like binges of sleeping at each others house for days on end and just being in that state of being young and not having responsibilities.But there is definitely a heaviness to it because you can sort of feel how it shifts and how it changes.Mae Whitman plays a rebellious teenager on NBC’s TV series Parenthood, but the actress is thoughtful, sentimental and surprisingly nostalgic in her Guest DJ set -- from her reflections on youth via the Replacements to her selection of “Shenandoah” by Jazz guitar great, Johnny Smith. Lawrence and I am in the studio with actress Mae Whitman from the shows Arrested Development, Parenthood, as well as the voice of Tinkerbell in a series of Disney films. ’ and I hadn’t even been that familiar with the Talking Heads which is like insane to me and I remember it was the first song of theirs that I heard and saw visually at the same time. I couldn’t believe that they had visuals like that, first of all, and mostly just that music could sound like that. The thing of mean and people sort of saying, you know, mean things or slanderous things or whatever, I think it's something that just people in general have to deal with, like boys and girls at every age at any time.Mae Whitman plays a rebellious teenager on NBC’s TV series Parenthood, but the actress is thoughtful, sentimental and surprisingly nostalgic in her Guest DJ set -- from her reflections on youth via the Replacements to her selection of “Shenandoah” by Jazz guitar great, Johnny Smith. Today, we're going to talk about some songs she's selected that have inspired her over the years as part of KCRW's Guest DJ project. I mean it was like genre-less and just interesting sounds. EL: Here it is a classic from the Talking Heads, “This Must Be the Place”. And I legitimately think it's nice to hear a happy song about getting made fun of, it's kind of easier to let go of.
