It's been quite a while since I've done this, and I got a major sunburn yesterday and quite honestly don't feel like thinking much today. However, I'd still love to hear any of your ideas as to what you'd like to see me blog about.
However, here's an old favorite game of mine, putting shuffle on my iPod and seeing what the first 5 songs are!
1) Take Me Home Tonight - Eddie Money
What an awesome song! Always gets me pumped up and dancing. Such a nighttime driving, happy song. I also adore Eddie Money! I think he'd be fantastic to see live. His songs are some of the greatest to sing along to.
2) Superstar - Sonic Youth
This is actually a Carpenter's song that Sonic Youth covered, and can I say how much more I love this version?! It was on the Juno soundtrack or else I would not have heard it otherwise. It's so spooky and intimate sounding...I absolutely love this version. "Don't you remember you told me you love me baby? You said you'd be coming back this way again, baby...." Love that line!
3) 15 Step - Radiohead
I'm not a huge Radiohead fan, but this song is so catchy! I love the beat even though it's definitely something I wouldn't listen to otherwise. Maybe it's the whiny voice that throws me off but I love the beat and the fact that it was in the end credits for...Twilight I believe? :) Maybe.
4) Kickstart My Heart - Motley Crue
I. Love. This. Band. And this song. It's so rough and kickass! Motley Crue has always been one of my favorite bands; I saw them in concert a few years ago and although the lights and setting was completely over-the-top, it was still an amazing time. This song makes me wanna take out my station wagon and drive it fast, well, as fast as it would chug along. Love this song. "Whoa! Yeah! BAAAaaaaaabbyyy!"
5) The Show Must Go On - Queen
Wow, all amazing rock songs today; I'm impressed. What can I say about Queen that hasn't already been said? The voice? Perfect. If only he had lived to create more beautiful music. This song always gives me the chills.
Are you as obsessed with the "shuffle" button as I am? What are you listening to today?
