Day 08 - A song that you know all the words to
Written in Reverse by Spoon

It's not until I ad to think about the lyrics to songs that I realized that I didn't really know all the lyrics for majority of songs. Sure, I can make up a bunch of them and kind of muddle together words; and I could only think of three songs that I maybe knew and this was the one I could go through first without being prompted by the music. It also helps that this song doesn't have too many lyrics.

I am trying to do this so it'll carry over to LJ. I did read up on the post about LJ's current problems and it's just making me really aim towards doing my LJ stuff during non-peak hours and just making an early private post and then reposting it by copy when it's due. Also, this is cutting into my fic reading time because I usually do some marathon reading from 8pm-midnight.

Day 07 - A song that reminds you of a certain event

Tonight will be a twofer since I skipped yesterday, also because I'm having a hard time narrowing down my choices.

A Change is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke
When I was seven or eight, it was a New Year's Eve and just before midnight my father put in the cassette tape and my parents danced together to this exact song. It was like the entire world narrowed down to them and this song with this line 'It's been too hard living, but I'm afraid to die' circling in my head. This was the first time I really paid attention to lyrics and let them be more to me than what they had ever been. Sam Cooke, ladies and gents.

Bye Bye Bye by *NSYNC
If you are a certain age, you probably remember when *NSYNC were everywhere and this dance was all over. My friends and I had epic conversations about BSB vs *NSYNC and I watched TRL for video premieres and recorded the MTV Awards on my VCR and then shared it with my classmates in our black market at our tiny private school. All those events are not what I most tie to this song, it's this: sitting in a cramped van at night, riding from Orlando, and listening to the first cassette tape I'd ever bought for myself for the entire trip. It was a little taste of pop liberty.

I'm so feeling tempted to do a Remember When Mix. This is getting ridiculous

Day 06 - A song that reminds of you of somewhere
Boston by Augustana

Boston is my dream place. I spent a summer there and fell in love and I still have plans on going back there at some point. Not only am I linking to the original song (in *m4a) but I'm also going to share the acoustic version.

Day 05 - A song that reminds you of someone
I Don't Know - Lisa Hannigan


This one was the most difficult so far, mostly because memorable music is so wrapped on what I'm feeling and experiencing that I don't have many songs that remind of people involved in my life. It's tangential at best.

But here it is:
There was a boy that made me think that every love song written was about our future; I had never felt so deeply about someone before and the entire experience had me more petrified than anything. His apartment was on the way to my apartment (I swear!) and whenever I'd drive by I'd think about stopping by or something else ridiculous.

//this song fits in the sense that while I did know a lot about that guy, I craved for more//

Day 04 - A song that makes you sad
Where Have You Been? by Manchester Orchestra

Just listening to this song pulls down my mood, and there may have been a night when I was already down and then got the the part I can hardly see what's in front of me most days, and those days too and clutched my pillow and cried a bit until I fell asleep with the song on repeat.

I'm really going to try and have a different artist for each song, but no promises
wishfulclicking: thumper from bambi (thumper LOL)
Day 03 - A song that makes you happy
Somebody to Love - Glee Cast

Looking through my library I realized that I don't really listen to music that much when I'm in a great mood, and often music doesn't really make me feel any emotion, it's more often a reflective support of what I'm currently feeling. Still, it was between three songs and because I have just recently had the Glee Soundtrack on constant repeat and spent a lot of time singing along off key and smiling when this song came on, this song won out.

Day 02 - Your least favorite song
Put Yo Hood Up (cover) by Set Your Goals

My weakness for covers has been documented before: I love the ridiculous ones and the ones that add something special. This one made me skip and almost regret my decision to buy this album. For anyone thinking that I should automatically regret buying Punk Goes Crunk, you haven't heard Lorene Drive's Hey Ya :)

It's difficult picking my least favorite song because I don't listen to things I don't like.

Yes, it is past midnight but I haven't slept yet and I spent most of my night doing house stuff. Also: the cool thing about box.net is that you can listen to the track without downloading, so click the link and test out the song if you want before saving it.

Day 01 - Your favorite song
Blindness by Metric

Choosing my favorite song was something extremely difficult to do; I don't just have one favorite song and when I went through my Top 75 via Itunes I was stuck in a game of 'this one, no this one!' until I came to an end. So Blindness is my favorite song right now at this moment: I'm playing it often, it has lyrics that make me pause and rewind and want to engrave on my headstone (if I were to have one of those), and it picks up a bit so I can dance around in my poorly lit room too.

After every ten songs, I'm going to post a zip file if anyone wants to do a bulk download. I'm using box.net so the files shouldn't go anywhere unless I delete them
