Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.
Today I wanted to choose a song with a positive message. I've been in a good mood these days, because personal reasons, so I've been browsing my mp3 player to see what I have for this. I've picked #JOY because I love its message. And I also know how much a nice word, or a smile can mean and brighten your day. The music itself is not exactly happy, but whatever. I am.
I had a really hard time choosing between The Sound of Silence and Stan sooo I went and choose a third one. Actually, it's pretty fitting. I did have a great time. Maybe not the time of my life, but great fun nonetheless.
I choose G.O.A.T by Theory of a Deadman because I wanted something to reflect my mood (well, okay, I always choose songs like that, duh.) It's an upbeat song, kind of a preptalk to myself that I can do this, I can get through this weekend and it'll be awesome.
I probably could pick about a dozen songs, but they just released their latest album Ultraviolet about 2 weeks ago. I gave them a quick listen then, but I was distracted with many other things and I only just got around to pay attention. I was about to go to sleep but I was still chatting with a friend when this song came up. It struck a chord in me and then saw the title. Angel.
Bon Jovi is one of those bands I don't particularly like, but even so managed to have an impact on me. There are about 10 of their songs I listen to when I feel a sudden urge to put them on. It's My Life is one of those songs everyone knows and I just can't help myself dancing and singing along when I hear it. For some reason I thought it was older, but turns out it was released in 2000. In retrospect, it's already 18 years old. Damn. I still love it so who cares. Also, it has a pretty simple message which applies no matter how old you are.
I've been listening to LP on Friday, then they came up in a conversation over the weekend and I woke up this morning listening to some more LP. I guess it's just that kind of day. Somewhere I Belong always resonated with me, even when I had no idea what the lyrics meant. I always wanted to belong somewhere.
P!nk is one of those few female singers I actually like. I always adored her for being different, and a rebel who weren't afraid to be herself be it about clothes or music or anything else. I don't like all of her songs, and I think she tends to be more pop than rock lately, but whatever. There are still songs of her I love the hell out of. Fucking Perfect is one of those songs.
I think Into the Wild Life is still my favorite Halestrom album. I'm kind of disappointed about Vicious. Anyway, I probably could pick a few other songs, but I chose I Like it Heavy, becuase I woke up with a line stuck in my head "We'll get matching tattoos" and had no idea which song it was from. I did some reasearch (I totally was thinking it was from another band, oops), and this song came up. So here we go. Besides, I really like this song.
I'm not such a huge fan of Thirty Seconds to Mars, but they happen to have some pretty good songs. For some reason, I'm quite obsessed with Walk on Water ever since I first heard it. It's quite catchy. And it catched my eyes when I scrolled through my mp3 player. As I said, catchy. Now I shut up before I make worse jokes.
Without going into details, let's just say I had a shit weekend. I'm still trying to get my pieces together. I usually go for Breaking Benjamin when I'm in this state of mind, but this morning Watch Me Drown came up and it fit my mood perfectly, so I'll roll with this. Besides, Seether is a close second to Breaking Benjamin, so either way, I'm in good "hands".
I picked Born For Greatness, because it has a positive vibe and it goes pretty well with my post last week. No matter what, life goes on, you have to step up for yourself and let those who doubt you know that you were born for greatness.

To go with my vacation mood I picked a song to kick it off. Summer of 69 is an old favorite of mine. It's kind of a bittersweet song, about a lost summer, full of life changing memories, love, hope for the future. I guess we all have that kind of memories 🙂
