“10 songs you love right now”
Really? We couldn’t have gone with five, what with it being day five and all?
I promise nothing. I don’t pretend to have taste in music that the kids these days call “cool” and “hip” (now get offa my lawn, punks). I don’t like artsy or obscure music. I like stuff I can sing along with, that picks me up or makes me feel something, but that I don’t have to like, y’know, be in that place to like, get it, man. And honestly, a lot of what I love right now is songs that were on the radio years ago, but that I hadn’t heard in years. Now I can get them on my phone. YAYS!
Videos? Why not?
You all know I like Marianas Trench. Well, those of you who have been here for a month or two. You know about Ever After and Sing, Sing (and yes, I’m counting that as number 1 and 2, just try to stop me). There aren’t music videos for those ones, but a lot of my favourites were, in fact, singles. I know, so mainstream. This was the first song of theirs that I heard and loved:
Good to You:
Did anyone else think, “I’m singin’ to Nelson. Ain’t I, baby?”
…though for sheer entertainment value, I’d recommend this one, because LOL, the old school 90210, infomercial and GAP commercial.
Hey, remember this song from a few year ago? I’d forgotten about it. Stupid camera noises… I hate when videos interfere with the song. I do love the concept of this video, though.
I’m going to share this one because I’m pissed I can’t get it on iTunes. I mean, I find the song confusing and don’t understand why people want to steal each other’s pens*, but Amy Lee’s voice = eargasm, so I let that slide.
Speaking of Slide (ooh, segue!), I’m kind of loving me some Goo Goo Dolls right now, too. Here’s my favourite, Black Balloon. Another note about this song: it contains what I consider to be the only acceptable use of the word “womb” in all of ever.
Um… *flips through phone*
Oh, here’s another one from quite some time ago (and by quite some time, I mean I was in high school):
Well, that was weird.
And how about another song that was popular Way Back When? 1994, around the time when I was first going, “Holy crap, music is AWESOME.”
I think that’s enough, if you count the sub-links.
What’s that? That was only nine?! OK, how about the last song I bought? Great for when I’m out walking with Jack.
I had no idea they were Canadian until I saw them there snazzy tuxedos. 😉
*Yes, I know what they’re really saying. Mondegreens are a specialty of mine, though. 🙂

I’d never seen the video until I looked it up last night. Wow.

Live in This City is a family fave right now. So great for kitchen dance parties! 🙂 I love this challenge idea. I might have to steal it for August!

Go for it! I’d love to see what you have to say. Heck, start it right now. Who says the numbers have to match the dates? 🙂
