adventures in music
children of dune - leto 1
I'm worriedly doing my monthly attempt to organize my music; worriedly because I always end up feeling uncomfortable with my top twenty-five. I'm a repeat-one-er when I need to concentrate on something, but seriously, who the hell repeat-ones goddamn Saliva?

Music new and old; it's been a while since I seriously updated my collection. Links to youtube when found.

It's Hard to Say I'm Sorry - Chicago, The Very Best of Chicago - I honest to God don't know. I'm not really a Chicago girl; I like their music and everything, but it's more music I listen to at other people's houses, not on my laptop.

You're the Inspiration - Chicago, The Very Best of Chicago - Okay, this one was on a show I like, so...I don't know? I mean, it was also like, 69 cents. So. Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on here except I really like to sing along to it.

Santa Monica - Theory of a Deadman, Gasoline - I finally started checking this 2005 album, since I'd been skipping it; I don''t know why. It's very--mellow? I have no idea why I love this like air, but I do.

To be fair, when I'm writing, I start to love the most ridiculous mixes. Also, to be fair, Child and I are at war over music. Child's going through a hard rock (read: one guitar should be destroyed per song) and looks down on any band that isn't property destruction galore; I mean, he looks down on freaking Tool, okay? Currently our meeting of minds rests on Korn and A Perfect Circle. I'm rebelling by making him listen to people with guitars wailing about love lost and whatever. This is hurting my soul.

Say Goodbye - Theory of a Deadman, Gasoline - I buy this band in pairs I think. I'm actually really attracted to this entire album, but not enough to get the rest of it yet. I can't tell if I just like the genre right now or them specific. This, not so mellow.

Airplanes - B.o.B featuring Hayley Williams - I could listen to this forever. I love Hayley's voice.

Losing Your Memory - Ryan Starr, Songs from the Eye of An Elephant - I watch a lot of youtube SPN vids. I don't know how surprised you might be to know how many use this one with the effectiveness of a blunt force instrument, but again, it works. A lot. Just--Jesus.

From Where You Are - Lifehouse - I kind of have loved them since Smallville in general, but I surprisingly don't like them enough most of the time to buy them. This is very easy to listen to.

Everybody's Wrong - Hinder, All American Nightmare - Okay, the thing is, they've become a lot like The Fray in that they are nearly bulletproof now (with the exception of Frays' last album, still bitter). I usually pair them with One Less Reason, but not so much now; I love, love, love their explosive bridges, I love that they tap almost entirely into my perfect writing playlist aesthetic, and I love that they're incredibly consistent on both.

What Ya Gonna Do - Hinder, All American Nightmare - see above. Also, I wonder, what do you do when the whiskey stops working? It's a very zen question.

I Will Not Bow - Breaking Benjamin, Dear Agony - SPN vids. Fucking SPN vids on youtube. It's ridic how much I can learn to like a song if it's set to Castiel killing things. I mean, what can you do?

I feel like I'm in a musical rut.

Hahahahaha Chicago. OMG. I went through such a thing with that best of album in high school.

I'm weirded out. I mean, I like them, but not like that. And yet.

Absrip used a Daughtry song in my favorite Destial video and ever since I have these... spells where I'll just play the damn thing, like, 20 times in a row. I don't know what gets into me! It's worse since I moved to my new apt which has a tenant storage room next to the wall where my stereo is. I have no neighbor to worry about! My safety valve is gone!

I think I have a latent power ballad fixation.

It's sad there is no link here to that video.

Power ballads, God. I collect those as well. Love.

I totally tracked it down and loaded it. It's the only video I've ever downloaded.

Re: Ididn't realize she has it up again- yay!

Got it! Thank you!

That? Is amazing.

Re: Ididn't realize she has it up again- yay!

I've probably watched that a thousand times and it still takes my breath away. Absrip is astonishing and all too rare.
