Tune for Tuesday

Today’s tune is by the band, Incubus (and I’m not talking about the movie that scared the bejeezus out of me when I was 10 or 11. My friend’s dad took us to see a double feature: The Beastmaster and The Incubus. Let me tell you the Beastmaster was much more family friendly than The Incubus. The Incubus gave me nightmares! Here's a link to the movie trailer. The bathroom scene haunted me for years.). But luckily the band Incubus does the opposite of that. I just discovered this band after my mom asked me if I liked Incubus a few weeks ago. I had heard of the name of the band, but couldn’t connect it to any song. Then last week I heard a new song on the radio that I really, really liked. It was by Incubus. I then spent the past week playing all kinds of Incubus tunes off the internet. I did not realize how many I knew! Lead singer Brandon Boyd’s vocals are downright beautiful. They have many catchy songs including “Drive” and “Pardon Me.”
Here’s a song that I have been playing over and over for days. I love when I find a new band that I love to listen to!
"Black Heart Inertia" by Incubus

On a completely different note, I bought tickets to the Harry Potter Exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry! This exhibit is only there until September so we had to make sure we went. I’ll give a full update after we go! My oldest son is so excited! (as am I!)
Also, I won a contest over at Suzanne Young's blog! Thanks, Suzanne! Her YA book titled The Naughty List comes out in the spring!

OH! Finally a band I know! Well, at least one song anyway. I love their "Drive" song on the "Surf's Up" soundtrack. I listen to that all the time. Off to watch the video now, but now way am I clicking on that movie link. If it scared you, I'll be freaked out for life!

He does have a nice voice! Unlike Rena, I don't know this band either. I'm a bit jealous that you're going to a Harry Potter exhibit. How exciting! I'm looking forward to reading about it.

I've heard the name but don't know this band, either.
The Harry Potter exhibit sounds like fun!

Kelly said...

Rena- I did not realize Drive was on that soundtrack. Cool!

Christy and Adrienne- Thanks, we go tomorrow to the exhibit!
Suzanne- Why thank you, I think so too! :)
