Tuesday Tunes-Day Volume V.

This week's edition of Tuesday Tunes-Day is inspired by the new hit MTV show, The Buried Life, which follows 4 guys who set out on a journey to complete their list of 100 things they want to do before they die. Goals such as, to longboard down Lombard St. in San Francisco, help deliver a baby, make a toast at at random person's wedding & tell a joke on a late night TV show. I spent a greater portion of my night last night catching up on all the past episodes as well as tuning in for the new episode where the guys headed to Washington D.C to try and play ball with President Barack Obama. Not only is this foursome out on a mission to fulfill their own dreams, but with each stop they make they ask the question to random strangers "What do you want to do before you die." They follow the motto of  "For everything we do on our list, we help a stranger do something on theirs." Each of the guys are absolutely adorable with their own quirky style & personalities (Ben the "Ringleader" of the group has recently been linked with the lovely Whitney Port of The City) but it wasn't just their looks that intrigued me. It is really just one of those feel-good show's that combines humor with a series of good deed's, like performing a sidewalk breakdance show to raise money & buy a new Mac computer for an elementary school teacher's class. Along with all the other great aspects of the show, they always feature new artists & good songs which only compliments each episode! Lucky for me MTV provided all the songs from the past shows and below are my favorite picks! Download away & don't forget to tune in Monday nights on MTV @ 10/9 central.
