Tune in Tuesday (2): Your Vegas and Greg Laswell

Tune in Tuesday is hosted by Ginger at GReads! I share Ginger's fanatical love for music. Seriously, we text about songs all the time in the form of "OMG YOU HAVE TO LISTEN TO THIS IT'S LIKE HARMONIC NOOKIE FOR YOUR EARS." It's one of my favorite things about her, so I don't know why I don't participate in this feature more often.


I've gone on a downloading spree recently because I've been itching for new, amazing music. One of my favorite discoveries has been "It Makes My Heart Break" by Your Vegas. Apparently it was on a show called "Chuck" a couple years ago (which I've never heard of or seen), but YouTube only has the acoustic version available. I HIGHLY suggest you head over to iTunes and purchase the studio version, which is vastly different from the live version. The uptempo 80s rock feel sets the scene perfectly for a drive down the highway, having a singing competition with your stereo.

Another song that you need in your life immediately is "And Then You..." by Greg Laswell. Honestly, I don't know how I survived without this man's music in my life. A huge thank you to Asheley from Into the Hall of Books for putting one of his songs on a mix for me. This song is heartbreakingly beautiful and that VOICE. You know that ear nookie I was talking about? This is it. Except I can't belittle the experience to "nookie." No, sir.

This song is the equivalent of your wedding night.


  1. Both of these songs made it onto my Spotify playlists this week! I had to crack up about your ear nookie comment. Also, have you heard Greg Laswell's song "Comes and Goes?" I LOVE it! :)

  2. I am new to Tune in Tuesday, but am sooooo excited to have found it! Both your songs this week are amazing and I am off to download right now!! Thanks for sharing! :)

  3. I am now a huge fan of Greg Laswell thanks to you, my dear :) My concert info email altered me that he's in the vicinity some time soon, playing a show.. but when I looked up the place - it's like a country hell hole. Not sure I can handle that, ha!

  4. Loving the It Makes My Heart Break studio version. It is being downloaded as we speak. Thanks for the intro!

  5. Aaaand I just downloaded It Makes my Heart Break from itunes. Love it!

  6. They both sound great! Thanks I will have to go listen to more.

    Every time. That voice. That is all.

    I'm SO GLAD someone else understands.

  8. How have you never seen or heard of Chuck?!? That show is seriously awesome.
    I really liked the Your Vegas song. Thanks for sharing :]
