I love nothing better than a sweet, new music find. Watching my guilty pleasure, 'Gossip Girl' a few weeks back, a gorgeous little tune played in the background of one of the scenes, and I just couldn't rest until I discovered who and what it was. Turns out, it's a lovely little gem called 'Beat of My Own Song' by a group called Meme. I've never heard of them before... and it appears that I'm not alone!

Searching the web, I could find very little on this pop group. Eventually my digging paid off. I was able to gleam that Meme is a duo: Danny Burke and Lizzie Brown. They hail from Minnesota, and the aforementioned tune was featured in - of all things - an episode of 'Jersey Shore' before it ever graced the soundtrack of 'Gossip Girl.' But please... don't let the Snooki connection turn you off! Meme are haunting, and so memorable. A little bit like Frou Frou, and a long-lost favourite -- Mono (yes, the brilliant creators of 'Formica Blues' - now, where are *they* now?). To put it quite simply, I loved Meme on first listen. 

iTunes offers their complete self-titled album, and I urge you to check it out. It's beautiful, and 'Beat of My Own Song' makes me feel happy, like everything is going to be alright. Always a bonus!
