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.
August 20th is our biggest national holiday. We celebrate the birth of our country. Aprox. in 1000. Stephen I had become our first king and accepted Christianity.
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 🙂
So, Shatter Me. Back when it was released I instantly fell in love with it, and I still like to rock out to it when it comes up on my playlist. I can relate to this song soo much. Just read the lyrics, it says it all.
I decided to pick Like I Roll, because this is one of my favs and because this one got me out of bed this morning. I even sang along. Thankfully no one heard. This song is about freedom, about doing whatever the hell you want and not letting others to put you down.
Things song came up a lot in recent conversations with a friend. Our music taste is quite different although we ended up finding some bands/songs we both like. Yay! I'm sure we'll have more in common once I can make him listen to all of my favorites, hah. Nevertheless, this is the first song we both know and love from before, so it's kind of special 🙂
