Sampha – Too Much

Not the best transition from yesterday’s song, but it’s tough to beat Sampha’s swooning voice on a Sunday.

Hot as Sun – Come Come

Found this song on the soundtrack of “For A Good Time Call,” a cheesy movie about two friends who start a phone sex line. The movie uses the chorus. You can guess why.

Darkside – Heart

I’ve never really defined what I mean by Sunday Song. Mostly I mean a song that is relaxed enough to ease me, and hopefully you, off of the weekend, but still good enough to be compelling.

Active Child – Evening Child

Totally should’ve posted this song yesterday and Pharrell’s “Happy” today. This is a perfect sunday song. Oh well. Sounds like a mix of Tracy Chapman and Jose Gonzalez. Slow, sensitive, emotional. Not bad things.

Here’s a video to break your heart. As Luke O’Neil puts it, “If this doesn’t make you miss the person you love inside your bones then you don’t have a person to love or bones.” But it’s a great song, and sometimes sad feels good. Choose one of those times, then watch this.

Lou Reed – Billy

One of my favorite Lou Reed songs. He was such a gifted story teller. RIP, Lou.
